About Lloyd Haevischer

This cottage has been in the family for over 30 years. After we built our cabin in the mountains we began to travel and enjoyed staying in VRBO homes. Instead of selling the house, we decided to share it with others who might be traveling to the Grapevine area. We enjoy meeting people from all parts of the country and welcome you to spend time at Lonesome Dove Retreat.

Lloyd Haevischer purchased this house in 1980

Why Lloyd Haevischer chose Grapevine

We chose the name Lonesome Dove Retreat because we are only 2 miles from the historic Lonesome Dove Baptist Church which was the first established church in the area in 1846. Author Larry McMurtry actually chose the name Lonesome Dove for his epic novel and mini-series after seeing a Lonesome Dove Church bus in the parking lot of a restaurant.

What makes this house unique

Grapevine is a charming town with something for everyone. Whether it is shopping, sporting events or Texas Wine Trails Grapevine is sure to please. Our cozy cottage is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but it is close enough to the excitement of the DFW area to make it worth your stay. After a long day of shopping, touring the wineries or attending one of the area’s many sporting events, you can enjoy our patio and hot tub complete with a flat screen TV and gas grill.

From the moment we stepped inside, it felt like home. Comfortable, cozy and welcoming.

All details are exactly as described and pictured. Tucked away in a nice quiet well kept neighborhood, Lonesome Dove allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of mid-cities DFW. You would not believe you were just 2.1 miles removed from the main highway (TX 114).

Staying here while attending the XO Marriage Conference, the home provided us the privacy and quiet alone time we wanted and were in such need of. This was our first experience with VRBO and our expectations were exceeded.

We would stay here again and definitely recommend Lonesome Dove Retreat to others.

Cozy house close to shopping, restaurants and entertainment.

  • 5 of 5

Great house, exactly as described. It had a warm & comfortable feel as soon as we walked in. Very close to shopping and restaurants. Plus the local holiday celebrations in Grapevine were going on during our stay & was very festive! We took day trips into both Dallas or Fort Worth, not a bad drive at all. No issues with checking in. Private / secured parking was comforting. Nice private yard with use of the hot tub. Plenty of towels and a well stocked kitchen. Lloyd was extremely responsive when we did have questions. I would certainly recommend this property to other renters.

Great property, well maintained, beautifully furnished, very secure, good neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this property in a good neighborhood. Very impressed with the kitchen supplies provided. You will definitely not find these amenities in a hotel/motel room. We were very comfortable in this home. We would definitely stay here again. Good value.
