Cedar Creek Lake

Our Splurge: David Burgher of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty has listed 5663 Lakeshore Court in Log Cabin, Texas for $1,850,000.

It’s only a matter of months before lake season creeps in. And if you’ve been eyeing lake homes in and around the Dallas area, have we got the Splurge vs. Steal for you! This week we put the spotlight on Cedar Creek Lake – a charming destination located just one hour southeast of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.

As the fourth largest lake in Texas with over 320 miles of shoreline it affords idyllic lake recreation, water sports, and a variety of lake homes at every price point. Whether you’re searching for a Lakeshore splurge or a Malakoff steal, Cedar Creek Lake has it all. Which would you choose? We would love to hear in the comments.

Splurge: Texas Style Private Retreat On Three Manicured Lots For $1.85M

If you are all about the lake life but are looking for luxury, your search stops here. This five-bedroom, four-full-and-one-half-bathroom beauty is hands down one of the best offerings on Cedar Creek Lake. With three manicured lots on 346 square feet of shoreline it is well-planned and private – ideal for family gatherings and weekend getaways to the lake.

Inside the home is poised for entertaining with two gracious living areas marked by soaring vaulted ceilings. We love the walls of glass overlooking covered porches with waterfront views.

Other highlights include a spacious gourmet kitchen, media game room, oversized garage with quarters, huge stone fire pit, sand volleyball court, and its own sandy beach!

A double boat house with touchless covers, plus a waterslide and party deck complete the experience.

Steal: Lake Life Charmer With Waterside Deck And Views For $325K

Perhaps something a bit cozier is for you? This darling three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom charmer has everything you need for a carefree lake getaway.

Nestled among large native trees, you’ll enjoy sitting lakeside on your expansive private deck with fire pit, and plenty of space from the neighbors. Waterfront views articulate the picturesque setting, met by a warm and inviting interior that is perfect for extended stays.


A granite kitchen with stainless appliances, hardwood floors, and huge open concept living take this gem over the top. We love the walls of windows framing tranquil Cedar Creek Lake views. There is even a fireplace for those chilly nights, plus a custom home bar for gathering with friends.

It could use a few updates, such as ripping the carpet out of the master bath – you can read a funny post on that subject here – or adding a fresh coat of paint, but overall the home is lovingly maintained and ready for its next set of happy homeowners.
