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!!

September 26-28 was my 18th visit to Pleasant Place, and I have another one coming up in a few weeks. I literally think of it as my Home Away From Home. You can read every glowing thing that guests have said (ALL of them are five stars) and just quadruple them. All I have to do is pop a change of clothes and foodstuffs into my car, and an hour later I'm walking back in to this gorgeous home with husband Robert and/or friends. Thanks again and always, Kerry and Tom! See ya soon.

Relaxing spot after a hard day at canton trade days

  • 5 of 5

We spent the past 4 days in this nice home. Enjoyed the close proximity to canton and the quietness of country living in the evenings. Our hostess was very accommodating and quick to reply to all our questions. Now since you are in the country I must add the cell service was spotty and no wifi but that didn't keep us from enjoying this jewel. We will return next year!!!
