Jim & Jodi moved to 'Shady Springs' in 2001 from Dallas, TX. The land has been in the family since the mid 1800's. Jim's mother inherited her part in the mid 1950's and started carving out their little niche in the woods on weekends and holidays. Parents retired and built their home in 1970. Jim designed and built our log home 'Mi Mi's Tree House' on the land in 2001 to be near 90 year old mother. 2005 we redid parents home for guests and family. We live on the property and take care of everything.
Jim & Jodi purchased this house in 1856
Relax with the peace and quite surrounding you.
Lots of fishing lakes close by.
This home was perfectly quiet and peaceful. It was clean and well stocked. The hosts were friendly and hospitable. We would definitely stay there again.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful guest house with us! We were blown away by how nice the rental was. Beautiful property, wonderful hosts and peace & quiet. Nice fishing pond and plenty of trails to walk around on within the property. Brecken, our 2 year old, was asking for Remi and Breck when we got back home...I guess we'll just have to come back soon to see ya'll!
This property was awesome! Clean, comfortable, relaxing, and in such a beautiful setting. Jim and Jodi were superb hosts, and we look forward to our next visit to their little piece of heaven!!
We visited for spring break with the kids, 8, 10 and 15. The kids liked it so much, we went back at the end of summer. Jodi, Jim and Remi were awesome hosts and we can't wait to return!
Tucked away among tall trees, far from the madding crowds! My family of four enjoyed our weekend at Shady Springs tremendously! The guest house is beautifully decorated, welcoming and impeccably clean. It's well equipped with everything that a family might need. If the indoors are charming, outdoors take your breath away. Serene and green! Brand new socks by the pond offer lovely sit-outs. We could go for walks in the trails and even paddle-boat in the pond.
Jim and Jodi are great, super friendly and welcoming. And what can I say about their dog Remi! She is absolutely adorable!
Highly recommend place!
Till we meet again, next time, Jim and Jodi and Remi!
