The Hideout owners fell in love with Lake Hawkins during the pandemic in the summer of 2020. This lake (and community) was our refuge from the city, where we felt a bit overwhelmed by the inability to go anywhere or do anything without significant precautions involved (who can relate?!). We often came to Lake Hawkins to enjoy nature, be near the beautiful clear spring-fed lake, marvel at the piney woods, and find our peace. We bought this land in March 2021 and began developing short term rental cabin homes in June 2021 so that other people could enjoy and fall in love with our little "hideout," too. We have recently converted to long term rentals effective October 2023.
The cabins were completed in March 2022 and we are now handling ongoing property maintenance. We welcome feedback to help make this a desirable and wonderful place for years to come!
The Hideout is fully fenced, with electronic gate access and exterior cameras on site for security. A pond has been installed along the southwest end of the property. We also have a playground, just north of the entrance with a swing-set, monkey bars and a merry-go-round (children must be supervised at all times!). We have 4 undeveloped acres fenced in with the property to the north that are walkable. The Lake Hawkins County Park, which has lake access for fishing, and a beach for swimming, is a 5-10 minute walk across the street and $5.00 per person per day, or an annual family pass can be purchased, as well. Additional information on Lake Hawkins can be found here. Local events, restaurants & activities can be found here.
We are open to offering special events at the Hideout, including private parties. We have a commercial bounce house and a 26' blow up movie screen available for use - these items must be discussed in advance so we can prepare. We also own a commercial building at the road that is 2500sqft (a former bar) that we converted into an event venue called "The Hangout at Lake Hawkins." This is a separate business owned by The Hideout owners and this venue can be available for events too, as scheduling permits. Pictures and rates are here.
We have five climate-controlled luxury cabin homes that are each 364, 420 (x2), 588 and 704 square feet.
We have a studio, two 1-bedrooms, and two 2-bedrooms. They all have bathrooms, HVAC, full kitchen, etc. Floorplans and interior photos are located here. The cabins are spread out over approximately 3 acres and are about 75'-125' apart. Seclusion, peace and privacy is at your disposal here at The Hideout. Our grounds are extremely versatile and offer a wonderful home for anyone looking to have a secluded retreat right by the lake.
No smoking inside the cabins. Dogs are accepted, case by case. No cats or exotic animals.
We are no longer renting our cabins to short term/weekend guests. Should the market change at some point in the future, we may revisit this business model.
