Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Susan and Steve Host are small business owners in Richmond, Texas.

Why the Owner Chose Leakey:
Susan and Steve both vacationed at Garner State Park growing up, and always dreamed of having their own place. When they saw the property, they fell in love with it. They built all the structures on the property, and cleared the land. They have created a vacation place for their families and hope you enjoy it as much as they do.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Steve and Susan hand picked where to place the cabins for optimal views as well as to take advantage of the breezes that blow through the porches year round. They have taken a great amount of time, energy and care to make the property a wonderful vacation destination for you and your family.
