Why Theresa Polley chose Mineola
We fell in love with the log home and the beautiful trees. When we stepped out of the car for the first time, we were amazed at the peace and quiet. We loved the fresh smell of the pine trees and the sound of the breeze moving through the tree branches. We bought the property from a couple who searched all over the Texas for a place to build a retirement home. When they found this property the only thing that was cleared was the driveway and the area where the main house now sits. The previous owners had tried to drill for oil, luckily there wasn't any. In 2007, having to clear only two trees, construction was completed on the guest house and yoga studio. Since then, numerous guests have hosted family reunions, vacation bible school, corporate retreats, weddings and more.
What makes this house unique
Most of our guests love the hammock in the trees. Lay back with a book or take a nap and enjoy the tops of the tall pines gently swaying in the breeze. In addition, the deck is the perfect place to take in the night sky. There is very little light pollution in the area and the view of the stars is amazing.
Guestbook comments from the owner
“We had a wonderful time, and I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my week in the Pines. Even with all the family here (there was a whole lot of food, fellowship, and family) I managed 10 minutes in the hammock out back and about 4 hour long hikes down the lane.”
