Nettles Nest is located near the intersection of highway 67 and farm-to-market road 991 in Redwater, TX, approximately 15 minutes southwest of Texarkana, TX.


If you are coming in on I-30 east from the Dallas area, exit at New Boston on Hwy 8 south. You will stay on Hwy 8 to Hwy 67 and turn left there. Go through Maud, and Redwater will be the next town. You will pass through one caution light and then be in the main part of Redwater, where you will see the bank, Delaughter’s Grocery, and the Country Store/Shell station on the right. Turn left at the second red light, next to First Baptist Church (FM 991 N). Go approximately 4/10 mile and turn left directly across from the elementary school playground onto the long blacktop driveway. There is a running girl cutout there and also a big “W” on a wood fence. There are brick flowerbeds on each side of driveway and lots of rocks in the ditch. Travel down the driveway and turn right between the red reflectors just before it makes a “Y.” Just drive across the grass, and you will see the road that leads around the lake to the cabin.

Directions from the East

If you are coming in on 1-30 from Arkansas, you will take the Kings Hwy Exit (FM 989) which is the last Texarkana exit. Turn left and go approximately 5 miles (3rd red light) to Hwy 67 and go right. Go about 9 miles to Redwater. You will see the school and First Baptist Church on the right. Turn right at the red light beside the church (FM 991N) and travel approximately 4/10 mile. Follow directions above for rest of the way.
