Texas Lakes House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, $450 up to 6 persons. See rates

A ranch house secluded in the middle of 160 heavily Wooded acres is yours to enjoy. June 2015 the 2 fishing ponds are freshly stocked with bass and blue gill for catch and release fishing! Bring your horse, mountain bike or your hiking shoes to ride or walk our miles of trails and lanes. 4 horse stalls are available for your use.

Lake Texoma is only minutes away.

Fish in one of three stocked ponds, swim in the wonderfully secluded pool during the summer months, and enjoy the tranquility of the woods in the winter months. All year, it is an exceptional house to get away to the woods with friends or family. The ranch has a great kid's room or play room above the garage, so the kids can have their own space!

The ranch house is very well appointed with antiques, nice furnishings and art. The Wolf Stove is every cook's dream.

Outdoor activities, in addition to fishing, riding or walking the trails, include a regulation sand volleyball court, water volleyball with net and ball, horseshoes, and a fire ring for a night of story telling, music, or s'mores with the kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mr. Thompson,

Yes this was our once a year team building event. I really feel it was the best one in over 5 years. The house and property is outstanding and the weather could not have been better. One of the best things about it is that there is something for everyone. So if we had a few that wanted to do nothing but decompress and unwind to the ones that wanted to fish and tour the property. We had a fishing tournament along with horseshoes to give the guys something challenging to earn donated prizes from our vendors.

The house was perfect in size to accommodate all of my team for breakfast, lunch and dinners along with our 2015 business planning discussions and the best part is that it was fully supplied with all cookware, towels, bedding and more. This in itself is really helpful so you do not have to pack up half your kitchen and closets for a weekend outing. All in all we had a great time and accomplished more at this year's outing than previous years.

We have shared with our other departments about the property and hope when they start planning their outings they consider your place. I would HIGHLY recommend any company that is looking to do a corporate team build or is looking to do some type of business planning that they really look into Wildwood Ranch. This really takes you out of the whirlwind of the office world and allows you to think clearly and to be more creative. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your ranch.

Thank You

Wonderful Wildwood

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend from start to finish. Fished, hiked, swam, explored bike trails, boated at Lake Texoma, relaxed by the camp fire and enjoyed family time! I highly recommend Wildwood Ranch for an easy family getaway.

This is the ultimate place to visit in the fall to truly enjoy the beauty of the wilderness, with all the comforts of home. The property was in excellent condition and caretaker Jose was very hospitable. We will be returning - Thank you for making this available for such great memories!

Country get away

  • 5 of 5

This get away was perfect. Buddy was getting married and it was perfect for a good group of country boys that just wanted to hang out and enjoy the outdoors. The place was in incredible condition.

Always the best!

  • 5 of 5

I keep coming back here once a year because there is no other place quite like it within an hour of Dallas - trust me I have looked. I have visited with my family which includes a 3 and 5 year old and they love it. I also visit with some buddies of mine for a man weekend and they look forward to it every year. Peaceful, beautiful wide open spaces. House has everything you could possibly need and is well maintained. I keep reading reviews about the poor internet coverage and I don't understand why you need internet when you are out in the country but for people who constantly need to be connected you can expect this: Verizon - you can actually get a LTE signal and my coverage is as good as Dallas. ATT, T-mobile, and Sprint - really bad, one bar maybe and no 3g or LTE unless you walk far away from the house. If you feel you just must be connected then bring along a Verizon hotspot. Enjoy!

Great family time

  • 5 of 5

We had a good time fishing, swimming, and exploring the land.

About twenty minutes from the lake. No internet and 4g is spotty.

But once you head into town you can pick up 4g. The house and property is very nice.

Fantastic Father & Son weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group of fathers and teenage sons had a relaxing and entertaining weekend of fellowship here. We got to spend time fishing, hiking, swimming, biking, cooking and enjoying time together before the start of another year of high school.

The house and grounds are exceptional with all the amenities and essentials. The owners and caretaker have been extremely accommodating and friendly.

The wildlife was abundant as we saw deer, turkey, roadrunners, hummingbirds and hogs.

We all look forward to returning next year and finding other time to bring our own families up for a visit.

We did not want to leave.

Checked 'Romantic' above because the house is very secluded and private in the middle of the 160 acres. You will not be bothered! Local golf cart rental - delivery & pick up - Doug’s Corner 903-564-9050. Majority of guests take advantage of this. Golf cart is a great way to explore the trails thru the woods. Fire pit with chairs & plenty of wood. Horse stalls, 2 stocked ponds, sand volleyball court.
