About Paula & Jim Archer

Jim is a recently retired Professor of Chemistry and Paula is a recently retired software sales leader for a major corporation. They moved to the ranch over 10 years ago.

She is on the Board of Directors for the Texas Shorthorn Association. Both enjoy sharing the relaxation and enjoyment of the ranch through the vacation rental program.

Paula & Jim Archer purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Paula & Jim Archer chose Pittsburg

We love the beauty of the area and the wonderful community of small town friends and neighbors. We moved to East Texas more than 20 years ago. After living in 'town' (Pittsburg TX) for 10 years we bought the ranch and fixed up Pine Grove Cottage for our weekend getaway. We loved staying there so much we sold our home in the city and moved to Pine Grove Cottage while we began plans for a new home on another corner of the property. During this time we needed more room for family and friends so we added Spring House on still another corner of the ranch. In 2005 our home was completed and we moved out of Pine Grove Cottage. We decided to offer both Pine Grove and Spring House on VRBO at that time so others could share in the beauty and fun of the ranch. We were so pleased with the wonderful guests that visited, we have added a third VRBO guest apartment and a Bed & Breakfast to allow larger groups to stay. We often host extended families looking for a retreat, wedding parties and multiple families who want to come together to visit. Now we can accommodate all. Our return rate is very high so many of our guests have come to view the ranch as their own special place in the country...without all the hard work!

What makes this cottage unique

We love the peace and quiet, the wildlife and the wonderful neighbors and sense of community in rural East Texas.

BEST PLACE FOR PEACE AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Lakeside Cottage and it was perfect! We had five total, including my two and four year old. The house was in immaculate condition with everything you need! We will be coming back for sure. I highly recommend taking the tour with Jim, we REALLY enjoyed him. It was everything we needed and more. I absolutely can not wait to spend more than weekend there!

Great spot and just hours from home. Everything in place to make for a restful, enjoyable stay. Tremendous place for couples or families with young kids, we asked our three about a return visit. The vote was unanimous...YES! Thank you Paula and Jim for your hospitality and allowing us to send a few days on your beautiful, quiet ranch (Texas oasis) Look forward to returning in the future.

Perfect location for our Daughters wedding in Pittsburg

  • 5 of 5
Our daughter was getting married in Pittsburg and we enjoyed very much staying at the Lakeside Cottage for 3 days. Everything was clean and neat and well stocked. Jim and Paula are great people. Jim showed us around the property and it was interesting to hear how they got started. If we every get back to this part of the country, we will definitely stay here.

A blessed weekend.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had an amazingly peaceful time at the Lakehouse. He took plenty of walks around the property and has flooded Facebook with movies of them. - Visiting with the cattle and guineys, watching the egrets and bulls from the porch was such a peaceful experience. We were blessed to have a grand show of heat lightening accompanied by a chorus of tree frogs on Saturday night. We never left the property.

The listing and photos do not begin to show the charm and cleanliness of the property. The landscaping and gardens were immaculate and a feast for the eye.

Paula was most helpful answering our questions and left instructions for us on how to operate the TV/DVD/Cable which were quite useful. We were very pleased with the free range eggs that were provided for us and only wish we had asked for more to bring home.

I would recommend this property to all of my friends, family and acquaintances. We are looking forward to many returns. Thanks for the hospitality.

Great for a long term stay !

  • 5 of 5
Each year we travel to the Lone Star Cattle Company to stay at the Lakeside
Cottage for the winter.We look forward to the comfort of the cottage and the great hospitality of Jim and Paula for five years now. If you might be considering leaving the cold north country for the warm and sunny ranch life you need to look no further. The cottages are clean, pleasant and have all one needs for easy living. The opportunities for adventure are almost endless from walking the many trails on the ranch to fishing for hungry fish, to shopping and antiquing in the many local friendly small towns. There are a variety of eateries that will please the simple to the most sophisicated tastes. There are activities for bird watchers, nature lovers or for those who simply wish to enjoy the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere of the ranch. We must say without hesitation that the greatest treasures of the ranch are the owners Paula and Jim who will do whatever it takes to make your stay relaxing, rewarding and certainly memorable.
So if you are thinking of getting away from it all and are thinking of a longer term stay you should give Lone Star Cattle Company your serious consideration.

Outstanding place!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful ranch! Although I didnt have the luck with the fish, the home was beautiful and had everything you could need. We didnt get to meet the owners because they were out of town, but they did call and check on us and were very courteous throughout the process. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. The winery that Jim and Paula suggested was also great, amazing food!
