Share Article

Texas ranch offers scenic retreat and relaxing vacation opportunities.

The smell of a fire, squirrels rustling in leaves, deer grazing in the field and a slight ripple on the pond… all sights and sounds to experience at Deer Lake Cabins ( For many, the holiday season creates as much stress as it does relaxation, which is why a rustic retreat to the tranquil Piney Woods of East Texas can be the answer for a post-Holiday escape.

Winter visitors can witness first hand many natural occurrences that most tend to take for granted. For instance, each year the 850-acre property becomes a stopping point for many species of migrating birds including ducks and geese that take residence in the two stocked fishing lakes. Guests commonly observe large groups of deer roaming the acreage and feeding on the grasses and grains made available to them. A cool, crisp walk down one of the many trails that meander the ranch can also reveal other wildlife like foxes, raccoons, armadillos and even a rare glimpse at a bald eagle.

On those particularly cold days, relax indoors in one of the 8 luxury cabins available. All cabins are fully furnished and include televisions, VCRs, central heat and air, and most have washers and dryers. The cabins also have well-equipped kitchens where a cup of cocoa or a pot of soup can be easily prepared. For guests interested in building and cozying up next to a fire, cabins with fireplaces are also available.

Deer Lake Cabins also sits in what is commonly referred to as Lake Country due to the close proximity of so many of the area lakes which offer lots of recreational activities in lakes like Cypress Springs, Bob Sandlin and Lake Fork. Of course, during the winter recreational activities are limited, but fishing swings into high gear. Deer Lake Cabins is located just minutes away from two of the best winter fishing lakes in Texas, Lake Monticello and Lake Welsh. Both lakes are power plant lakes, which means the water stays warm through out the winter making for excellent fishing, particularly for bass.
