Overview

Dallas Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Large 20 Acre charming quiet Ranch near Dallas, TX with rolling meadows, horses, cattle, stream, pond and swimming pool, 45 Min from DFW, 10 min to major malls, yet in quiet country settings. Must see to believe this stately home with spectacular views and Texas sunsets. Grand Ball room, huge dining hall, extra large kitchen, jacuzzi, pool, ponds, streams and many extras.

Hurricane Evacuees!: Nothing would be better than board up your home and evacuate to our Ranch in Dallas, and enjoy the hurricane sipping some hot chocolate in our ranch in front of any one of 3 large fireplaces. Think about spending time with family and loved ones in cozy atmosphere not worrying about the hurricane.

Call us immediately to reserve this ranch for the next hurricane. Available at special rate of $ 350/night when official hurricane warning in the coastal area is declared by the National Meteorological society. Enjoy the next hurricane far away from it, yet once it is all over it is a quick drive back home.

We can not guarantee when you reach back home after the hurricane it will be same party like you had at our ranch. All the best.

You just want to get away from it all!: Now, if you just want to get away from it all, what is better than enjoying a ranch for few days? You could swim in the pool, take a horseback riding, just relax in the jacuzzi, or take a leisurely stroll along the creeks and ponds.

Have you seen those spectacular Texas sunrises and sunsets? When you look at the horizon flat with raising or setting sun with golden orange warmth, you wonder why I haven't been here before? Great inspirations and inventions were made at our ranch by scientists and artists who stayed here in the past. Perhaps your creativity will blossom here?

Nothing could be better for the family to spend time and enjoy the pollution free atmosphere, away from it all. Try it, you will absolutely fall in love with our ranch. All the best!

Boss wants to work the fellows even harder!: Well you are the corporate big honcho, and you want to work your top guys to come up with that great creative idea for setting up the next marketing trend!

Now your top guys are too tired just traveling in high traffic jam each day and they are completely demoralized by the all that water cooler politics. They want a new place, new atmosphere to stroke their creative genius in them.

Now, you have found a place for a great retreat. Your guys will not only love it, but they will be more productive, highly enthusiastic and ready to develop or conjure up that one big marketing idea or the next new invention. So give them a chance to flourish with their creativity.

Send them to Lone Star Ranch for a retreat, and your fellows will thank you, and you make your own boss just so happy with great productivity! Good luck.

Finally, do not forget to checkout the helipads where you can land your helicopter (with prior permission) in the heart of the ranch, and no need to suffer through the Dallas traffic. Ask for a free helicopter ride* (Conditions apply).

*Free one time 30 min helicopter ride for 3 people when you book this property for a minimum of 1 month (Max combined weight of all 3 passengers should not exceed 400 Lbs)..

We accept MC, Visa, American Express and Bitcoins.

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5
HI Nancy

Thank you again for looking after us so well last week. We so very much enjoyed the ranch - the whole place is very relaxing and was perfect for preparing for the wedding as well as winding down afterwards. And the whole experience was made even better because you were so very nice to us. We will miss the ranch, horses and even the fish!

We will be coming back to Texas on a regular basis now we have family in the state so perhaps we will meet up again. If not, it as a pleasure getting to know you.

Love

Rosemary

Slumber Party

  • 5 of 5
This is a very nice location for a Stay-a-Way. For those people who live in the area, and just want to get-a-way. We rented this property for a sleepover event for young girls ages 11-14. There was more than enough space for sleeping arrangements and we enjoyed the fact that we could bring and cook our own food. Everything is available, all you need to do is bring yourself. This is definitely a location that we are looking forward to returning to. It's very affordable, and it gives you the luxury of a 5-Star Hotel with more amenities.

We flew in from Hong Kong and had family come meet us from Mass and NH. At the most, there were 13 of us. It was so spacious and comfortable for all of us. Nancy the manager, was wonderful and I can't recommend this place enough!

A great place for a large group

  • 4 of 5
We just returned from spending a weekend at the ranch. There was plenty of room for the 3 couples and 2 singles in our group. We enjoyed the pool, walking around the property and liked the fact that it was close to shopping and restaurants. The property manager was available to answer questions, etc. We will definitely plan on using the property again in the future.
New sheets and better cooking utensils and coffee pot were the only things that would have made our stay better. We have already recommended it to some friends.

Oh what Bliss...

  • 5 of 5
Our first ever visit to Dallas was the best vacation anybody could ever wish for. This was helped by staying in the most friendliest, beautiful, spacious ranch that we could have found. Nancy the ranch manager was the sweetest most helpful person you could ever want to have met, giving us plenty of space when we needed it or being close by if ever we needed her.
Our trip was the last trip my father will make due to his illness and I am so glad we chose to stay at the Lone Star ranch.
If you want a great place to stay then you wont be disappointed.

Car: recommended

Located at a short drive from DFW airport, downtown Dallas, and downtown Ft Worth. Adjacent to the famous South Fork Ranch; Lake Lavon and many other attractions of Greater Dallas Fort Worth area. Must see to believe this quiet setting only a few miles away from all major attractions. Nearest Walmart is only 10 min! But from all angles from the house you will only see farmlands! Now that is a setting hard to match in a bustling Dallas Metropolitan area.

Golf: So you are a GOLF Enthusiast! Numerous Golf courses around. Check with property manager when you check in.

Ski: Well you know, we are in Texas! Instead of Ski details, ask our property manager about all other fantastic activities available to you in Dallas area after you check in!
