Pittsburg cottage description

Fully furnished cottage overlooks a beautiful spring fed four acre pond. Lakeside Cottage is brand new and has wood floors, farmhouse sink, silestone counters, central heat/air and a beautiful gas log stove for ambiance. Perfect for a family retreat or a romantic getaway. Located on our 250 acre working ranch, Pine Grove Cottage is tucked away on its own corner of the property. A sun room can double as a third bedroom as the daybed there can convert to two twin beds. An open family room/kitchen is perfect for family gatherings. Guests are free to roam the ranch property which includes several small lakes (four to seven acres in size) and large expanses of wooded acreage where wildlife and birds abound. Fishing on the lakes is available. Lakes are stocked with bass, catfish and brim. Spring Lake has Hybrid Bass and nearby Oak Grove Lake has Florida Bass along with catfish and bream.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: Jim and Paula Archer own and operate Lone Star Cattle Company, a working 250 acre ranch in Northeast Texas. Jim is a recently retired Professor of Chemistry and Paula is a recently retired software sales leader for a major corporation. They moved to the ranch over 10 years ago. Jim remains active as a District Governor for Rotary International. He is also Chair of the local ambulance board. Paula raises Shorthorn show calves and breeding stock. She is on the Board of Directors for the Texas Shorthorn Association. Both enjoy sharing the relaxation and enjoyment of the ranch through the vacation rental program.

                          Why the Owner Chose Pittsburg:
                          We love the beauty of the area and the wonderful community of small town friends and neighbors. We moved to East Texas more than 20 years ago. After living in 'town' (Pittsburg TX) for 10 years we bought the ranch and fixed up Pine Grove Cottage for our weekend getaway. We loved staying there so much we sold our home in the city and moved to Pine Grove Cottage while we began plans for a new home on another corner of the property. During this time we needed more room for family and friends so we added Spring House on still another corner of the ranch. In 2005 our home was completed and we moved out of Pine Grove Cottage. We decided to offer both Pine Grove and Spring House on VRBO at that time so others could share in the beauty and fun of the ranch. We were so pleased with the wonderful guests that visited, we have added a third VRBO guest apartment and a Bed & Breakfast to allow larger groups to stay. We often host extended families looking for a retreat, wedding parties and multiple families who want to come together to visit. Now we can accommodate all. Our return rate is very high so many of our guests have come to view the ranch as their own special place in the country...without all the hard work!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We love the peace and quiet, the wildlife and the wonderful neighbors and sense of community in rural East Texas.
