Jim and Paula Archer own and operate Lone Star Cattle Company, a working 250 acre ranch in Northeast Texas. 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. Jim remains active as a District Governor for Rotary International. He is also Chair of the local ambulance board. Paula raises Shorthorn show calves and breeding stock. 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

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!

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

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!

ANOTHER GREAT STAY AT LAKESIDE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had another wonderful visit to Lakeside Cottage. The weather and the setting were perfect. Boating on the lake and just old fashioned "exploring" were highlights of the day. And of course, the coziness of the cottage itself made our "homebodies" happy! We had everything we needed to have a perfect stay!

BEST KEPT SECRET

  • 5 of 5
What a great place. Deep in the country, nice and quiet. Beautiful and comfortable this time of year. The house was perfect for our needs -- simple and well appointed. Fishing was a bit slow, but still caught 3 decent size bass. We took the grandchildren to feed the chickens and walked all over the property to see the cows and goats. Up close and personal. Lovely time.
