Sorry to disappoint my Houston guests. Rick & I had no idea you were looking for a romantic hideaway! If we made you uncomfortable in some fashion I do apologize. We are so accustomed to having guests stay we no longer suffer from “Gladys Cravits” syndrome thus not focusing on what is going on at the guest house. The amenities section of both VRBO.com and homeaway.com are accurate for what we provide. I would venture a guess I provide more than what is listed. Yes the tank less hot water heater is finicky – sorry you did not bond with the system – we like the eco friendly nature of the unit. Oops, the auto temp button was not pushed on the HVAC unit. When engaged, the unit works with a thermostat while controlling the temperature. I have added the instructions to my “helpful hints” provided for all the guests. Rick & I consider the guest house an extension of our home and pride ourselves in providing the accommodations we advertise and each guest agrees to when making their reservation. We enjoyed having you as our guests and welcome you back anytime!
We stayed here for our 29th wedding anniversary. We wanted a nice, quiet place away from the hustle & bustle of the city and we got just that! The owner lives on the property & greeted us upon arrival to show us around and explanations on the outdoor kitchen & hot tub then never saw her again, it was like we were there all by ourselves. I would highly recommend if your looking for a beautiful, nice, quiet cabin this is the place!
This was by far the most relaxing vacation ever! The descriptions are as accurate as can be! We had so much fun just sitting outside and enjoying the sounds of nature. The river water was chilly, but refreshing after being outside and being hot. Ms. Lori has a diamond in the rough and we cannot wait to go back! Highly recommend to everyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing place to vacation.
We just got back from a family vacation at the guest house and it was AWESOME!! The listing description was very accurate and Lori was a great host! She assisted us with finding a place to park our boat, recommended the best place to visit the lake, but also gave us plenty of space so we felt like we were alone in the woods! The amenities were great, she even had shampoo, conditioner, body wash, etc in the bathroom for us! The property was very clean and tidy. My daughter loved the loft and I felt comfortable with her sleeping up there. The Caddo River was great too...cold, but very refreshing. We enjoyed sitting down there with our feet in the river and watching our daughter play! We took a couple of day trips to Lake Ouchita which was only 30 mins or so away. We couldn't have asked for more and will definitely recommend to our friends. Also...we left a pair of my daughter's flip flops (I hadn't even realized they were missing yet), and today a package came in the mail from Lori returning them. Small gestures that show Lori really cares. Thanks again for everything!
This getaway was a girls trip. We decided to go to a place we've never been and this was a pleasant surprise. The pictures don't do it justice! The cabin was super clean and much bigger than the pictures made it look. The outdoor kitchen was fun and we got plenty of use out of the hot tub and fire pit. Lori has thought of everything a visitor could possibly need and had it handy. She was there if we needed her but gave us lots of space. We especially enjoyed being off the beaten path but still having all the things a 5 star hotel could offer. This spot is close to lots of outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking and fishing. Hot springs is not far for a short day trip.
My girlfriend and i are humble students who needs to get away from it all for a couple days. Lori has literally thought of everything you might need minus food. I mean everything. The stars are crystal clear at night, a hammock provides a perfect place to watch them. Her dog is huge and super friendly and only adds to the majestic ambience of the property. Kittens can seen playing and running around, we saw a clumsy one fall into a garden sink she has near her storm cellar. It was like a picture from a calender. (he was able to get out quite easily). To top everything from the perfect bathroom to the complete outdoor kitchen. I forgot my watch unknowingly and received a package a few days after my arrival home with it neatly bubble wrapped. Thanks again !! This property is like something out of a dream and Lori has made it a reality. If for some ridiculous reason you want to leave the property there are plenty of crystal shops near by and a few of them offer day time leases of their personal crystal mines. Where you can practically walk around and pick up crystals off the ground no shovel needed. Get away from it all while sacrificing no creature comforts, thank you Lori you have something really special here.
Lori was a great host. Lily hung around here and there but was very well behaved. Guest house is close to owner's home but she gives you your privacy. She available if needed but minds her own if not. Cabin was clean and every thing was in working condition. Decorated so cute. My kids 9 and 7 loved it. The river by the cabin was perfect for them. Didn't have to worry about them getting washed down the river. There was crystal clear, cool, refreshing water. Nice swimming hole just a short walk down. Kids loved tubing from swimming hole toward cabin area. Outdoor kitchen made us feel like we were camping with a little luxury. Hot tub was nice to come home to after a day in the river. Did have just a small refrigerator but since we were there for a week Lori understood that we had quit a bit so she offered an additional area in the fridge she has in the storm shelter. We got to look at the other cabin she has available for rent. That one is one level so those with young kids might prefer that one over the guest house. The other house is a little closer to the river too. Just depends on what you are looking for. From what we saw of the other cabin, it was really nice too. If there were two couples with kids both could be rented. We made a day trip to Hot Springs. Just over an hour drive. Beautiful the whole way. Also went to the crystal mine close by which made for a nice morning activity. Most of our time was river in the late morning, river in the afternoon and hot tub at night. Great getaway. If we can make it back to the area we would definitely stay there again, either cabin. Thanks Lori for being a great host! We had a great time.
