Susan and Steve Host are small business owners in Richmond, Texas.
Steve Host purchased this estate in 2002
Susan and Steve both vacationed at Garner State Park growing up, and always dreamed of having their own place. When they saw the property, they fell in love with it. They built all the structures on the property, and cleared the land. They have created a vacation place for their families and hope you enjoy it as much as they do.
Steve and Susan hand picked where to place the cabins for optimal views as well as to take advantage of the breezes that blow through the porches year round. They have taken a great amount of time, energy and care to make the property a wonderful vacation destination for you and your family.
I have been anxious to see this beautiful part of Texas and what a treat to experience it from this incredible property. As we turned onto the reserve we were greeted by a flock of wild turkeys! We then went on to the impeccable grounds and my son couldn't jump out of the car fast enough! We held a Thanksgiving feast, roasted s'mores and told ghost stories among one of their huge fire pits! We took all of our children on a hike through their bobcat trail and got to interact with the sweetest little deer! The kids found so many rocks with fossils, we lost count! We played tennis on their awesome court and just enjoyed relaxing on the wrap around porch! The sleeping accommodations were perfect and we all had our own private areas to recharge our little batteries :) We can not wait to return, this place was such a blessing to my family and we are forever thankful you decided to share it with us! the pictures don't do this place justice! Wait until you feel what it's like to be hugged by the four surrounding hills and you'll be hooked forever!
The owners were wonderful, always willing and able to help out with any questions we had. We spent 3 days in Leakey and although we had originally planned on going to Garner State Park we ended up not leaving the cabins. There's just so much to do on the property that the kids were just happy being there. The cabins are even more beautiful than described and couldn't be happier with our choice. We can't wait to go back and we know exactly where we will stay. Thanks for everything, God bless!
We had a great experience spending the weekend here. The Cabin and the barn were very clean as was all the property. Being a family reunion we had a wide range of ages and there was fun for all. I would surely recommend to anyone. Thank you Mr. Host
My husband and I rented Steve's cabin with another couple and had the best getaway! I've stayed at tons of rentals, and this one was just perfect. The cabin is absolutely gorgeous, and the kitchen was fully stocked with great cookware, knives, and dinnerware. The beds were super comfortable, there was plenty of firewood, and there was lots to explore on the cabin's land. We hope to come back soon! Thank you, Steve- you couldn't have been a better host!
We were so blessed by this awesome place! We took our youth group there and they loved it! Everyone fell in love with it and we plan to return
The Host Family was so nice and accommodating!
Pictures does not do this property justice
We had an awesome time in this property. All my friends loved the tranquil nature and peaceful atmosphere. We planned to go to Garner state park, but there is a lot to do here inside the property, we played volleyball, tennis, basketball & pingpong. It was an ultimate relaxing and fun weekend at this property. If there was wi-fi available in the cabins, it would have been better. But, the owner was kind enough to let us use wi-fi at their porch, however we did not do it. Beautiful porch in the main cabin, where you can sip your coffee and immerse into the nature. My 2 year old daughter was so happy exploring this beautiful piece of nature. Kids had a blast playing games. Nobody in our group wanted to leave, guess what? we are going again.
