2. Cabin in the Woods (from USD 90)

“Hotels could learn a lot from Leisha. She was warm and welcoming, and made sure we had everything we needed. Her cabin is well-equipped and an excellent place for a family vacation or quick getaway. We hope to visit again soon!” – Giao (guest review)

Located just a mile and a half (2.4 km) from Van, TX, 12 miles (19 km) from Canton, and 10 miles (16 km) from the Texas Rose Horse Park, this little cabin is centrally located to many East Texas attractions. Peace and quiet reign supreme here as you relax and overlook your own private lake.

Spend the afternoon walking around the property or fishing on the lake. Catch and release only though! Interact with the owners’ dogs, geese, and ducks as you enjoy some quiet time. Pets are allowed with prior notice and some restrictions.

4. Lakeside cabin (from USD 89)

“Enjoyed a quick trip to celebrate the end of school. Plenty of room for the kids to run around! We had fun jumping off the (newly built) pier, attempting to fish, roasting marshmallows (the hosts provided!) over the pit, and enjoying the peace and quiet. We’d love to come back for a longer stay.” – Abby (guest review)

Leave everything behind at this waterfront paradise on Lake Tyler, Texas. With no wireless internet or television, this is truly a place to unplug and enjoy each other’s company in the great outdoors. Wildlife abounds here as well – guests have seen deer, owls, alligator gars, and turtles.

Spend the day fishing and the nights making s’mores over a campfire under the stars. Guests are welcome to bring kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, or anything else to have fun on the water all weekend. Tyler is only a 12-minute drive if anyone needs to get back to town for eating or shopping.

This house is perfect for a fun group getaway. It has 3 levels, so be prepared to climb some stairs, but also to have the time of your life. Wall high windows provide a spectacular view of Lake Conroe, and the house is designed to entertain kids and adults alike.

7. Judy's Country Cottage (from USD 80)

“Wonderful place for a getaway. Quiet country road perfect for long walks, cozy cabin, but I must admit I spent most of my time on the relaxing front porch enjoying the view. I would highly recommend!” – Elizabeth (guest review)

Wind down a country road to find a quaint and tidy cottage with fresh fruit and muffins greeting you. Centrally located among First Monday Trade Days and the Texas Rose Ranch, this getaway is a perfect view into country living.

Guests are surprised to find that this house is so secluded it doesn’t even need curtains on the front and back doors. There are a few movies to watch and a DVD player, but you’ll want to spend your time outside in the pleasantness of nature.
