Reunion

  • 5 of 5
First off – wonderful property! Everything we wanted and more. It provided plenty of space for all guests, cooking and lake activities. It couldn’t have gone any better.

I really appreciated your property caretaker's hard work and helpful attitude. She was really great!

I also want to thank you for helping us set up the weekend. You really went out of your way to help us with any concerns or questions. I’ll definitely be recommending your property to anyone who asks.

Hope to stay there again soon.

Great Texas Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week last Summer. The property was beautiful and the homes very comfortable. The new boat dock and lake access was amazing considering that most properties no longer have water access due to the drought. The property manager was helpful and very nice. My experience with the owner was professional and pleasant. We are planning another trip this Summer and intend to make this an annual vacation spot.

family reunion/wedding

  • 5 of 5
We rented the entire property for the week of my son's wedding for all of our family to stay. I can't say enough how wonderful and special this place is. It was the Texas experience I was hoping it would be. The houses were well kept and supplied with all the things you would need for a vacation and more. Ed,the owner, was great to work with and answered all questions promptly. Caroline, the caretaker, was just as sweet and helpful as she could be.
There was room for us to spread out and and have private places to be or just be with everyone. The dock is "still" in deep water and we had a blast going down for a swim and also rented a boat for 1 day.
We were allowed to have our rehearsal BBQ on the property which was wonderful. Lots of picnic tables and grills to handle all.
I hope that we will return for another great vacation one day. I pray for rain to fill the Lake back up to full pool as I know it will be even more beautiful than it already is.
THANK YOU so much for sharing such a special place with us.
Only one request. :0) It would be great to have some history of the property in your books in the houses. Everyone was wondering about it.
Lauren and family

We look forward to you coming back soon!

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
Some friends and I stayed here for a weekend get-away. The owner was very gracious and accommodating. We rented two cabins, both of which were very nice. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation spot. I will definitely be back.

Excellent service

  • 5 of 5
My group did not actually stay at this rental property, because our headcount exceeded the capacity of what the property had to offer. However, I just have to leave a review on how great Ed is with helping me with the paperwork, answering all my questions promptly and patiently when we had considered renting. I can't speak much on the property itself, but Ed's hospitality is a big plus, and that made the reservation process very pleasant, and we were looking forward to our stay, had we chosen it.

Excellent Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
“My experience working with Ed was wonderful. He is a great person first, and an excellent business man. His properties were perfectly suited for our group’s needs. They are well kept, comfortable, and unique. Ed was accessible, detail oriented, and truly focuses on his renters needs. There was no question in my mind that Ed was looking out for our groups best interest and had a strong desire for us to enjoy our time. What more could you ask for? Thank you very much for a great weekend! We look forward to coming back soon.”
