About Cecilia Phillips
Two Texas natives met 28 years ago in the heart of East Dallas and married once they had a few years under their belt. An engineer and a pharmacist added a heck of a daughter to the mix 19 years back. All three enjoy arts, music, camping, fires, movies, and DIY fun times.
Cecilia Phillips purchased this House in 2012
Why Cecilia Phillips chose Gun Barrel City
Once the lakehouse bug hit us, we checked out everything within a couple of hours drive of our 100 year old house in Dallas. Cedar Creek Lake quickly took the top spot as location for it's range of activities, friendly people, fun vibes, and (let's face it) convenience to Dallas. The house in Willowwood was a perfect combination of something for everyone. Dad got the garage, boathouse, room for tools, and yard big enough for bonfires, grilling, and horseshoes all at once. Mom got decking with a waterfront view, no carpet, and a gas stovetop in a well equipped kitchen. The teen got a convenient place to swim, a huge sectional to lounge in, and room to chill with her friends sufficiently away from the parental units. There's a little bit (and in some ways a lot) for everybody here in a comfortable, unpretentious atmosphere. We hope our guests find it as fun and relaxing as we do.

Spacious, cozy and well kept accommodation
My family and friends spent a great time with our 2 day weekend at the property. Kids were very secured playing in the yard. The function area upstairs is versatile for some fun and relaxation. Basic necessities at home and utensils are easily located. Property manager Patricia is very accommodating and provided us info to ease our stay. Thanks you!
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! We loved hosting you, and hope to see you again in the future.
We had a large group of 20 and this fit our entire crew beautifully. The backyard was huge and we kept the fire pit busy! We loved that there were tons of towels and linens and the only thing we had to bring was food. Thank you for a great weekend!
We had a family reunion, with folks coming from all over and it was great having the space for all. We cooked out every night and fished all day it was awesome. The owner was very nice and the young woman that was the caretaker was very nice and helpful. Would certainly stay again.
Only down side was no real beach area for swimming but no one noticed they swam near the dock so all was well. Thanks we really enjoyed our stay. It was just to short!
We're so glad y'all had a good time at your reunion! We loved having you stay with us and hope to see you again.
Very nice home
Our family had a great time. Awesome home on the lake.
We're so glad you had a good time! We loved having you stay with us and hope to see you again in the future.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future!

We stayed at Gun Barrel Getaway for 4 nights, late February, 2018. House and yard was nice enough, took advantage of the boat dock. Unfortunately, it rained all the time we were there, until the last day . Wish the fireplace had been repaired since it was cold and wet all the time. other than that, the place was great for our group. Will look at booking in the future. Big Crappie Guide Service helped us to catch our limit (75) crappie in just over 2 hours on Sunday, Left Texas late but with GREAT MEMORIES.. WILL RETURN
We were so happy to have you guys stay with us, and do hope you can return to our area when the weather is a bit more cooperative. That's good feedback on the fireplace for those cold and rainy days. We're also very glad there was a break that gave y'all the chance to head out on a successful trip with Big Crappie. Those guys never seem to fail at finding the fish!
Near to the heart of Gun Barrel City, with many restaurants and stores located within a couple of miles. Canton First Monday trading days just a half hour's drive to some of the best shopping and antiquing in the world. Cedar Creek Brewery is just around the corner and open Thursday through Sunday where you can sample their craft brews and grab some food. Tara Vineyard is ~15 miles away for tastings, tours, and high-end dining. Bring a boat or jet ski and drop in at the nearby Chamber Island ramp, or any of the other ramps/marinas around the lake. Or pontoon boats can be rented from Cherokee Landing. A large, two slip boat house is on the property with one slip always open to guests. Or hang out in the expansive back yard with frisbee golf, washers, horseshoes, bimini ring toss, grilling, or just relaxing on the deck or boat house. Cedar Creek Lake is one of the Dallas region's best kept secrets - a fully equipped resort lake without the crowds.
