Relax and absorb the lake life, all while staying at the Lunker Lodge at Lake Leon Airbnb. The cabin is named after the owner's son set the lake record for catching the 13-lb lake record bass caught in 2019. The modern log-style cabin is perfect for a fishing weekend or a week-long family getaway.

Fish the pier, or bring your boat, and enjoy the awesome outdoor fireplace with a covered patio just some of the many amenities you'll discover at this modern log cabin that is set on Lake Leon southeast of Eastland, Texas. Just looking at the cabin gives one the feeling of a dream come true.

LOOK: This is Lunker Lodge Cabin by Lake Leon

While this 'Lunker Lodge at Lake Leon' log cabin looks small, be aware that it does sleep six, it has four beds, three bedrooms, and one bathroom. This wooden marvel has all the latest appliances and offers indoor and outdoor cooking areas, barbecuing, and offers a "Granny's Lunker Lodge Cooking" homestyle-delivered food option.

While it has a small living room, dining area, and washroom, you'll want to spend most of your time in the great outdoors taking in the awesome sunrises and sunsets on Lake Leon. If you still really need it because you might have to work, there is fast, reliable internet, WiFi, and a Roku TV.

The 100 feet shoreline the cabin sits on is perfect for rock-pier fishing, swimming, and paddle boating on the lake. A word of warning though Lake Leon is known to for having many tree stumps throughout the lake, most are within 300 yards of the shoreline.

Finally, if you need to see proof of the lake record, a replica of the Share Lunker 581 black bass that was caught by Brad Scott the owner's son in 2019. It is showcased along with other fishing memorabilia in the cabin.

Anyone staying at Lunker Lodge at Lake Leon that wants to go canoe fishing or boating will be given a safety orientation. Good luck and I hope you catch the next record-setting bass.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
