"Gary and Cerise are amazing! The house was comfortable and had everything we needed from cooking utensils to paper plates. We had such an amazing time my teenage kids are already planning a trip back. Their response when I asked what I should write was: "the hospitality made the trip 10x's better. Listen to Gary when he says you need to try the snowballs they are great!" We could not have asked for a better experience. Anyone wanting to get away from home and not stay in a hotel should definitely stay here!"

"From being welcomed before leaving to EVERYTHING we needed PLUS extras, this place hit the "mark." The very, very well supplied cottage was accented with farm fresh eggs and beautiful "baa's" -- the latter are some of the most friendly and courteous goats I've ever met, and I've met quite a few! We were so close the Crater of Diamonds; easy to go back for a nap, grab a bite to eat and head back for treasure hunting. You'll find the grocer close and EVERY direction has some great stuff for exploring -- antiques, quartz, scenic vistas, and the people are so very friendly."

"What a magnificent birthday! We stayed in the cabin - the lodge was larger than we needed for 2 adults and a 1 1/2 yr old - but the cabin was perfect for us. It was so nice to not have the city noises in the background or lights. We enjoyed being able to see the stars so clearly, see the fields lit with fire bugs, and hear sounds of the farm. My son thoroughly enjoyed "talking" to the cows and horses. Even though he didn't want to pet the chickens he did keep making noises like them the rest of the night. The feeling we had the whole visit was so much like the feeling of going to a family members house, it was so comfortable, the cabin was stocked so thoughtfully. Even though we already had other plans on our trip we were considering on asking if the next night was available! It was wonderful to spend my birthday here on your farm with my family and not in a hotel... It certainly made it much more memorable.
Thank you for your generosity and hospitality. I look forward to another trip in the future!"

"Shady Pines is such a wonderful place to stay at for a vacation. It was everything we imagined it would be and Miss Martha brought us some of the best brownies I have ever eaten. The 7 acre lake is absolutely awesome and the fishing was good and not to far from the Crater of Diamonds! It is only 45 miles from Texarkana, Ark. and we drove there Sat. morning for our daughters birthday and still got back early enough to do some fishing. We were so pleased with the peaceful, serenity of Shady Pines that my husband and I will be visiting again."
