Relaxing and fun

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to unwind and explore. There is enough to do to keep the kids entertained while also being able to slow down and enjoy this beautiful and serene countryside. Even though we visited in early July, the temperature felt great thanks to some wonderful wind. No matter where the wind is, there is a great spot on the wrap around porch or one of the sitting areas to enjoy it.

The kids loved swimming, feeding the horses/donkeys and meeting the chickens. They also enjoyed the various yard games on site, hearing the neighboring livestock and seeing fire flies for the first time.

Delinda was wonderfully accommodating. She was quick to answer questions via text and she was very sweet to the kids with us. She introduced them to the chickens and let them walk the miniature pony.

It was such a wonderful, relaxing and fun place to meet up with our family from Dallas with out all the hustle and bustle of the city. We highly recommend!

Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful place and a quick get away from Dallas to relax and unwind! We had such a great time hosting our daughter's wedding shower there. Everyone enjoyed the firepit and lawn games - and the patio is perfect too. I'm pretty sure they've thought of everything! Just remember to use Off for chiggers and mosquitos - you are out in the country after all! =) Thank you for a happy weekend - we'll be back! B & K Bass

Beautiful remote country home surrounded by rolling hills, wildflowers and friendly animals.

  • 5 of 5

Great getaway within 30 minutes of Dallas. All comforts of home, wifi, satellite TV etc., and all the charms of the well-heeled ranch life, from the huge swinging bench to the doe-eyed miniature horses. Not to mention the bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes. Nice road cycling in the area too. Also, owner lives nearby and is a pleasure to work with. Thanks Delinda!

Absolutely excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, beautiful house and grounds, and wonderful host. Easy access to the cities, but far enough to enjoy the beauty and quiet of the countryside during the day, and the stars and sounds of the night. Excellent value. I can't think of anything lacking. We will be back.

Delinda is such a wonderful person and her property is absolutely great! Very relaxing!! It has everything you need. While we were there my husband had to go to the emergency and she was helpful and called several times to check up on my husband even after we checked out of her place. She is so sweet and her place is so inviting! Thank you so much!!! 😊
