About Jodi or Jim Roberts

Jim and Jodi Roberts moved to 'Shady Springs' in 2001 from Dallas, TX. The land has been in the family since the mid 1800's. Jim's mother inherited her part in the mid 1950's and started carving out their little niche in the woods on weekends and holidays. Parents retired and built their home in 1970. Jim designed and built our log home 'Mi Mi's Tree House' on the land in 2001 to be near 90 year old mother. 2005 we redid parents home for guests and family. We live on the property and take care of everything.

Jodi or Jim Roberts purchased this house in 1856

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house. The place was very clean and well stocked with everything you could need. The property is gated so we felt safe and secure, which is nice because we had our boat. We fished 6 different lakes in the area. The owners live close by and are very friendly.

Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

Used as an "overflow"" accomodation for Thankgiving since we had more guests than our house could hold. This place was just as fantastic as the other reviews indicated and then some! The owners went out of their way to make sure everyone enjoyed their stay. Absolutely perfect, and we certainly intend on using again in the future.

A Little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Such a peaceful, quiet & wonderful place in the country. The house was well supplied with everything we needed and very clean. We enjoyed walking the trails & reveling in God's creation and beauty. The cozy fires at night were a plus. The owners are so hospitable and aim to please. We recommend this place highly and hope to return. It is near towns where one can shop for whatever they need.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our stay today and my kids are already asking when we can go back! The whole family enjoyed the weekend of fishing, hiking, and eating s'mores around the fire pit. We loved playing with Remy, the unofficial mascot of Shady Springs! It was a complete joy to watch her bound around the property with such a happy energy! The owners were perfect! Available if we needed them, but gave us our privacy to enjoy their beautiful homestead. Couldn't have asked for anything more!
