Overview

East Texas Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Relax in style! Take a break at our beautifully appointed Treehouse in East Texas.

Treehouse is located in a forested section of a 300 acre ranch. It is a cozy getaway with a queen bed, sitting area, full kitchen and bath with commanding views of the 8 acre lake below. Situated on the second floor of the owner's detached carriage house, Treehouse offers a private deck where guests can sit and take in spectacular views of the lake. It features windows, windows and more windows opening to the surrounding woods and hence, the tree house feel. Accommodations at Treehouse are first class and include luxury bedding with Egyptian cotton sheets. Satellite TV with DVD library and a DSL hook-up let you reconnect with the world outside if desired.

A picnic table and gas grill sit on a large dock out in the lake and make for a wonderful dining experience just a short walk from Treehouse. Guests can hike and picnic throughout the 300 acre ranch. Because the ranch sits between two vegetation zones, it is a great area for birdwatching. For those who enjoy fishing, the lake behind Treehouse is stocked with Florida bass, bream and catfish. Guests can also fish on a variety of fully stocked lakes/ponds throughout the property. All fishing is catch and release to ensure our fishing remains good for future guests. Each has a dock and most have boats and/or canoes for getting out on the lake.

The owner will provide interested guests with a tour of the ranch where prize winning Shorthorn show cattle are raised. Miniature horses and tiny pygmy goats are also a great hit... especially if there are baby goats to pet.

Located within 15 minutes of Pittsburg, Gilmer and Winnsboro, guests can experience life in the country but also enjoy the amenities of a town. In the Summer, fresh peaches, blackberries and blue berries are sold at nearby orchards. Golfing, a winery and a variety of restaurants are within 15 minutes of the ranch. There is also a SPA in nearby Winnsboro for those who want to pamper themselves while visiting. For antique shoppers, there are many shops within 15 to 30 minutes of the ranch.

Why Paula & Jim Archer chose East Texas

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 Treehouse 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 but each property can have its own privacy. 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!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Paula have an amazingly beautiful and extremely well kept property. We had absolutely zero trouble finding their Ranch and they have their property marked with cute little signs pointing you in the right direction. The Treehouse was adorable! It was very clean and well stocked with everything you need. Fishing was wonderful and I definitely recommend this to anyone and we will absolutely be back!

Incredible Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Lone Star Ranch! We took the paddle boat out several times and caught a few nice size bass. So much fun! We enjoyed an evening fire down by the lake and grilled out on the dock. We hiked around the stunning property, it was so peaceful. In the mornings we ate the eggs we purchased from Paula. The eggs were so delicious and fresh! The blackberry jam was also amazing! The cabin was perfect, comfy, and cozy!

Thank You, Jim and Paula for sharing your wonderful ranch with us. We look forward to visiting again one day.

What ever I say will not be enough to describe how beautiful this ranch is~ My hubby & I stayed in the treehouse, It was so accommodating, it had every thing you need. We only left the property once in 3 days.My hubby & I made a deal that he would cook and I would clean...It was so awesome we cooked on the grill, Paula brought us tomatoes & corn over from her garden, It was delicious! We will be returning to this little slice of heaven in the middle of no where~We loved it! Thanks Jim & Paula, we had an amazing stay!
