About Kerry Carr

Our family moved to this property from the Dallas area in 1999. Our house is about 100 yds from "Pleasant Place" guest house.

Kerry Carr purchased this house in 2005

Why Kerry Carr chose Canton

Pleasant Place was built by my mom in 2005 and she lived here for 5 years before she passed away. She loved being in the country, seeing deer, enjoying nature, and of course spending time reading, playing games, and eating candy and ice cream with grandkids!!

What makes this house unique

This property has a wonderful family atmosphere. Pleasant Place guest house is a happy, peaceful place!!

Very relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home over the Christmas holiday and had a wonderful time! The home was very cozy and comfortable and even had a Christmas tree decorated in the living room. We enjoyed getting out and walking the trail they have thru their woods, sitting out by the fire pit, and even saw a few deer while there! It was a perfect place for us to get away from the hustle of constant traffic and people and just be able to unwind for a few days! Kerry was a very nice hostess as well! Thank you for great getaway!

This was our third year to stay here for our girls weekend and it was great again. Kerry is very friendly and goes out of her way to make our time there pleasant. The house is always clean and welcoming. It has everything you can think of and the best view around. Can't say enough good things about the place and the owner. We love it!!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

This was a very pleasant surprise! My family and I stayed here over Thanksgiving Holiday and couldn't have been happier. It was clean and cozy (two bedrooms downstairs and a loft upstairs) and the property is secluded and beautiful. Lot's of outdoor exploring for the kids and relaxing for the adults! Most of all the owner (Kerry) was very helpful and made everything so easy.

We will be staying here again!
