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.

A relaxed anniversary weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Lonesome Dove retreat was the perfect weekend getaway for my husband and me. It was very nicely and comfortably furnished, and had everything we could want. We loved being so close to Grapevine Main and Southlake Town Center with easy access on small roads. We'd love to return sometime with our family or another couple for another lovely stay.

Very homey and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a quiet neighborhood. The beds are very comfortable with luxurious linens. The spa is just right for getting the kinks out. This is our place to stay when in the Dallas area.

Clean, convenient, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my two elderly parents over the Memorial Day weekend to attend a wedding. The home was perfect for our needs. It was clean and comfortable and centrally located to the pre and post wedding activities in Grapevine and Southlake.

It was quite warm with some rain and thundershowers and my parents appreciated the AC to keep them comfortable. I will seriously consider staying here again when I visit my family in the area. The owner interaction was very easy and without any issues.

Comfortable Home Away From Home

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in Dove Retreat was wonderful. It is situated close to Southlake and Grapevine. The owners were easily accessed and gracious with their minimal response time. We enjoyed our cozy stay in this well maintained house. It is quaint and comfortable. The beds are to die for; big and comfortable. Our needs were meet and exceeded. We did not need a car as Ubber and Lift were available. We stayed a week and will come back next time we are in the DFW area.
