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 Dallas - Fort Worth (DFW)

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.

Perfect weekend at Lonesome Dove.

  • 5 of 5

We were planning a visit with family in Grapevine and looking for a 'homey' setting where our 9 yr. old grandson and 4 yr. old granddaughter could visit us and have a "sleep over" with Gran and Grandad. Lonesome Dove provided just what we wanted and the kids loved spending time with us in "our cottage!" Our grandson asked us to stay here when we come again! The house had everything we needed, was super clean, easy to find, lots of room - perfect! The owner is a pleasure to work with and responded quickly to our emails!

Great find

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for four days as we had business in Grapevine/Southlake. The home is in a safe, quiet neighborhood near everything we needed. A comfortable bed, wonderful shower, clean environment, and cozy interior greeted us. We will definitely be returning. Thanks Lloyd.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Great stay. Three of us stayed here for a girls weekend. Went to Grapevine Downtown on Saturday. Perfect location. Clean and fun little house with an awesome wine barrel fire pit out back. No time for television viewing but it's available in all 3 rooms. Thank you for great memory making.

Perfect place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family! The backyard was gated, so our kids could run around safely. The house was equipped with everything we could possibly need for the weekend! The hot tub was an added bonus! The beds were very comfortable. The shower was great! The house was close to all the major things to do in Grapevine. It was THE PERFECT place to stay for our little family!

Lonesome Dove Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and had modern amenities. There was a binder that contained useful information such as Wi-Fi password, instructions on using the wireless printer, television channel directory, and area restaurants. The neighborhood and location were nice. I would stay here again if I find my way back to Grapevine in the future.
