You can access the back porch and enjoy a very quiet spot, surrounded by our mature woodland, maybe watching some of our wildlife passing by (turtles and cats) and enjoy our outdoor fireplace.

Excellent country living experience, 1h from home. We stayed relax.

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful and very comfortable. It had everything you could ever need, from extra towels to a wine opener and a clip to close the bag of chips. It was like being at home. With those kinds of amenities, it was hard to leave. A+.

The Little "Gabby" Family

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us! This was the best vacation we've taken in a long, long time. Gabi was a wonderful hostess. Our girls are still talking about the much they miss Sharky and Foxy. The pool was refreshing and beautiful, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was a chef's dream, the surroundings are peaceful, everything was absolutely perfect and relaxing. The cabin was impeccably clean and well kept...beautifully decorated as well. We had every little thing that we needed and/or wanted. I'm not sure what else to say. Gabi delivered fresh farm eggs to us one morning because my husband was right in the middle of making pancakes for breakfast when we realized that he had forgotten them at home. We got super fresh steaks (and crispy pickles) from Old World Meat Market in Whitesboro (about 15-20 minutes from the cabin) to grill...very nice steaks on a very nice grill, charcoal or propane (your choice). If you visit the meat market, the jalapeno poppers are a MUST, even if you don't like peppers. Gainesville is a great little town. If you have children, the zoo/water park/play ground and train are a must as well - very reasonably priced. The people are friendly and the traffic is light. None of us wanted to leave. It's all that we've been talking about since we left. As a matter of fact, we're already planning our next trip! I'll be talking to you again soon Gabi. Thank you for everything! WE LOVE YOUR CABIN, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR ANIMALS.

This was a fabulous Texas ranch weekend with beautiful amenities and an amazing hostess!

  • 5 of 5

Photos do not do this log cabin setting justice. The cabin is charming, very clean and has all the comforts to ensure a perfect stay. The views from the large windows let us watch the horses, donkeys and cattle and their daily routine. The pastures are mowed to let us have easy access to get up close and greet them all. Our hostess, Gabi, could not have been more gracious and educated us about life on the ranch. The swimming pool, grill, fire pit, playground area make this a spot we hope to bring our grandchildren back to very soon! This spot is definitely a treasure!

Super relaxing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

7 Wheel Ranch is the one of the best get away from it all and relax locations that we have stayed at. The property has a pool cabana with a pool table, foosball table, floats and of course the fabulous pool. The cabin is impeccably decorated with rustic charm and scenic views. Watching the sunset while sitting on the porch swing while Gabi feeds the cattle or listening to the babbling water feature all excellent ways to relax and enjoy God's wonderful scenery. The best part is Gabi's hospitality as she makes sure you have everything you need to have a great stay. We also enjoyed Foxy, Malibu, Kaela, Lucky who came to visit us and our golden retriever.

Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had an event to attend at WinStar and didn't want to stay there because we were looking for something a little more scenic and different- it is a true hop, skip, and a jump away- so if you have some gamblers and non-gamblers in your party then this place is the best of both worlds! This property is every bit as wonderful and more- as described. Gabi is absolutely the hostess with the mostest- she was easily able to guide us to whatever our hearts desired and is just a wonderful conversationalists- she ensured that we had everything we needed and were taken care of during our stay. The property is located on a beautiful ranch with so many great little furry friends to give your love and attention. The home is perfectly decorated and impeccably clean. There is a convenient store not located too far away so if you need to pick up some quick items to stock your fridge then make sure to do so- and grab some ice- as Gabi will suggest. The pool was still closed during our visit- so you may want to make sure you inquire about access depending on the time of your visit. We absolutely loved our stay and will definitely make sure to come back- such a wonderful getaway.
