The space
NOTE: Host is not liable for any incidents in regards to the house, boat house, property, and/or lake.

NOTE: FYI, with the recent popularity and increased frequency of online meetings, we want to let guests know that our Internet may not support Zoom or Skype calls in the way you're used to. They do connect, but there is sometimes a delay, which can be frustrating for people on both ends of the call. Also, streaming on multiple devices at the same time can exacerbate this problem. Thanks!

Hoping to catch “the big one”? Craving R & R with the family? Need the perfect place for your wedding stay? Five Points Lake Fork—a rustic, private, waterfront deluxe cabin on 3 private acres—has it all. Perfect for your fishing weekend, couples’ weekend, family vacation/reunion, girls’ getaway, rehearsal dinner, retreat or bridal/wedding party.

We invite fishermen, nature lovers, families and brides to check out our rustic retreat, with its open concept LR/DR/kitchen and expansive upper and lower back porches. And how about the boathouse—complete with overwater, bungalow game room, 1-stall boatlift, expansive dock and fish-cleaning station?

Our peaceful, spacious log cabin is nestled in quiet No Name Cove, located in Ray Branch on the hottest bass fishing lake in Texas. The private, air-conditioned boathouse boasts two tables—poker, anyone?—microwave and mini-fridge. The private, concrete boat ramp and fish-cleaning station make your fishing getaway a breeze. Located just minutes from several towns, including Quitman, Mineola, Emory and Yantis makes the cabin the perfect home base for antique shopping; plus, the World-Famous First Monday Trade Days in Canton is only 30 miles south. The guys can fish while the girls shop ‘til they drop! Also, each town has various festivals, fairs, and other activities throughout the year.

The Colorado ash interior, floor-to-ceiling custom stone fireplace, hardwood floors, and open floor plan with incredible lake views make this cabin one of the best places on World Famous Lake Fork. Whether you choose to sip iced tea (or wine) on the back porch, take your boat out on the lake, or roast marshmallows in the outdoor stone fireplace, you’ll feel stress just melt away. The grassy area in the front of the house is quite large—with ample room to play catch or touch football. We also have horseshoes and corn hole available. Imagine the fun your family can have!

If you don’t have a boat, no worries—fishing is an option right off the dock. Or, contact The Boat Rental at Lake Fork. They can deliver and pick up from the cabin.

Enjoy the well-lit pathway to the boathouse with tree lights, or tell stories under the Edison-bulb lights on the back porch and patio area. Sunsets on the lake are spectacular, and the stars at night are big and bright!

Prefer to stay indoors? We’ve got you covered there, as well. With the wall of French doors, you can enjoy the lakeviews from inside. Play games, enjoy free WiFi, watch cable on DirecTV, or snuggle up while you watch a movie. Family bonding time has never been better.

The well-equipped kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar, a butler’s pantry with beverage fridge and all the appliances, pots and pans and cooking utensils you need to prepare meals for your family and friends. Cook up your catch of the day, or have a crawfish boil. However, if cooking isn’t your thing, you can visit one of the several local restaurants for some good home cookin’.

We allow small to medium-sized dogs WITH HOST APPROVAL. Small fee required.

We allow small parties WITH HOST APPROVAL. Small fee required.

NOTE: We do not allow RV hook-ups on this property, but there are several RV parks situated around Lake Fork.

Sleeping Accommodations:
King Bedroom #1—Downstairs: King ranch-style bed (linens provided) and brand-new foam mattress. Multiple windows with stunning lake view. French doors have blackout curtains. TV sits atop a storage armoire. Guests are welcome to use the mirrored dresser. This room also has a western-themed loveseat and cedar chest at the foot of the bed.

King Bedroom #2—Upstairs: King bed with cedar chest bench at its foot. 8" thick futon opens to a full-sized bed. Wall-mounted TV, nightstands and armoire with extra pillows and linens round out the room, which has blackout curtains hanging on French doors that lead out to a balcony with an incredible view of the lake.

Bedroom #3—Upstairs: The Red Room has a queen-sized bed with a comfortable, thick mattress and equestrian-themed bedding. Red blackout curtains hang over the French doors that lead to the balcony with the same wonderful lake views.

*Note: Bedroom #3 and #4 are adjoining bedrooms so you must pass through bedroom #4 to get to bedroom #3. We have installed a fabric screen to give additional privacy to guests in bedroom #4 (the pass-through room).

Bedroom #4—Upstairs: Twin over full bunkbed with blue & white bedding.
Living Room—Leather sofa, fabric sofa & a plush recliner (a favorite of many), with a large coffee table, fireplace and TV.

**Note: We also have a couple of twin air mattresses available (with electric air pump) for additional guests. Please message host if you need to use these.**

Bathroom Accommodations:
Bathroom #1—Downstairs: Large master bath with slate walk-in shower, jetted tub, and his and her sinks.
Bathroom #2—Upstairs: Large Jack-and-Jill-style with walk-in shower

*****Please note, we cannot reimburse any rental monies due to low lake levels. There is a public ramp close to the property (should the lake be too low to launch from our property), and boats can be tied to the dock once the boat is in the water.*****

Guest access
Guests will be able to access both the cabin using a keypad on the front door. We'll send the unique code on the day of arrival. Guests will be able to access the boat house with a key; it's located in the basket at the end of the kitchen peninsula.

Other things to note
NOTE: Hosts are not responsible for low lake levels. However, that doesn't happen very often.

Located on a 3-acre property situated on a large private cove of Lake Fork, this home offers lots of seclusion and nature. But having a private boat ramp is what really sets us apart. And we hope you'll take full advantage of the outdoor fireplace, the fire pit and gas grill, and the game room in the boat house.

My husband, Bret, and I enjoy hosting people from all over the U.S. and the world at our two rustic homes, both with spectacular views and lots of privacy. We've discovered we have a knack for creating spaces that make guests feel at home by adding special touches like outdoor lighting and rustic furniture and by capitalizing on natural settings. We have two properties--a 4/3 estate home on six acres in Rockwall, TX (less than 25 miles from downtown Dallas) and a 4/2 log home in Alba, TX that sits on Lake Fork, one of the world's premier bass fishing lakes. Both Five Points Rockwall and Five Points Lake Fork have water views--our place in Rockwall overlooks a 1.5-acre private pond, and the cabin on Lake Fork is situated on No Name Cove. Bret and I also enjoy making rustic-industrial furniture. Both of our homes showcase pieces we've built, including a dining table, TV stands, coffee tables, headboards, night stands, desks, and shelves. The things we couldn't build we discovered at First Monday in Canton, Texas, one of the largest flea markets in the U.S. NOTE: Canton, TX is less than 45 minutes from both of our homes.
