Texas Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4 baths. Sleeps 12

Our Denton County country guest house which is located in the heart of the DFW Metroplex…approximately 40 miles northwest of downtown Dallas, 40 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth and 60 miles from Arlington.

The restored Texas log farmhouse is nestled amongst gorgeous 100+ year old live Oaks trees. There are spectacular views with some pitch and roll offering the true beauty of this impressive countryside. Have fun watching the horses graze, deer feeding at dawn and all the wonderful bird species that come our way. Located on 22 acres down a secluded country road.

Enjoy the beauty of a clear Texas night before bed and a fresh cup of coffee or tea on one of the two large porches, complete with rockers, while you watch our magnificent Texas sunrises and sunsets to relax your body and soul. Also take time to sit by the pool while sipping on your favorite beverage, or enjoy the wood burning fireplace inside!

The house has six bedrooms, 4 baths. Downstairs is the master bedroom with queen bed, master bath with double sinks off the bedroom. The other bedroom downstairs has twin beds with a bathroom off the side. There is a family room with a flat screen TV, DVD player, wood burning fire place, fully stocked kitchen and small dry bar. The glassed in back porch shares the wood burning fire place with the family room and has a sitting area and dining table.

Upstairs are four bedrooms (two with queen bed and two with double beds) and two baths. Please note that the log cabin design provides for an open concept and the upstairs bedrooms do not have doors. There are privacy screens available to shut off the bedrooms from the hallway. Also upstairs is a game room with the ping pong table. Provided are a variety of indoor and outoor shoes, badminton, volley ball, cards, poker chips.

Los Arboles recently adopted a small dog that someone left out on the street and she has adopted Los Arboles. So, BD (Barn Dog) will be there to greet you at your arrival. She loves all animals and humans so she should provide you and your dogs that are accompanying you with much attention.

The property is convenient to activities in Dallas, Fort Worth, and is very close to Lake Lewisville where you can rent fishing or ski boats or personal water crafts.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know that we had a completely wonderful time Thurs. through Sat. a.m.

My husband (who is not one to get too excited about anything) said it was the most

perfect time he'd spent in a long time. The weather was perfect and the house was

so great! Our 3 teenage granddaughters cried when they had to leave B.D. She even

sat on people's laps like the great lapdog she is. Thanks again for sharing this

remarkable place with us.

The colony


  • 5 of 5

My family rented the house to stay in while coming from Tennessee we also had my wedding there. It was perfect with tons of room for the wedding, party and children to be outside without having to be smashed inside like other weddings. We got so many compliments about how beautiful everything was and so many questions about how we found it! So an awesome place to stay and great place if you need room for something bigger.

Family Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we found the grounds freshly mowed, bird feeders full of food, fresh hanging plants on the porch, and a refreshing clean pool. The cabin was clean, and the layout fit our family well with the four bathrooms and six bedrooms. We felt very much like expected guests. Everyone had plenty of space. The area is peaceful, and if you can entertain yourself this is a great place to kick back and enjoy being together.

Beautiful Experience

  • 4 of 5

Just wanted to let you know that your vacation home and the surrounding countryside are absolutely wonderful! Our family of 8 adults, 4 children, and 1 dog had plenty of room to roam both inside and outside. The pool, the porches, the fishing pond, the horses, the nearby swimming beach and boat ramp (Little Elm - 6 miles) - everything was great. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place in the country.

Wonderful Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Rancho De Los Arboles is a wonderful vacation home. The house is warm and homey, the perfect place to relax. It has beautiful views from all the windows, a spacious fully stocked kitchen, big shady porches to hang out on, and a great pool. The bedrooms were much larger than they looked in the pictures and very comfortable. We had a group of 8 adults and 9 kids and everyone had an awesome weekend. We plan on coming back! I would highly recommend this home.

We had a beautiful wedding here

  • 5 of 5

This home was an absolutely perfect place for us to be wed. We rented it for the whole weekend. The owner was very accomodating to all of our needs and wishes. I could go on and on about what a fabulous time we and our guests had. The pictures are great but don't do the house justice. It is absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The house was very clean and VERY well stocked. Nothing was overlooked. We had everything we needed for a weekend wedding party :)

Several of our guests are interested in renting the house themselves! I highly recommend it!

Thank you Ellen for going out of your way to accomodate us. Our wedding was a perfect party that turned out better than we ever imagined. You helped us create a memory that neither we nor our guests will ever forget.
