  • Peace and Fun at High Hope

    "this was my third time to have a women's retreat. There were 20 of us. We had a great reunion of goodfriends. We had a kitchen, very nice bedrooms, a walk in the labyrinth, walks over the property. Everything was so quiet and peaceful and serene. The birds chirping in the morning, the beautiful sunrise and sunsets sitting on large porch with coffee or glass of wine and friends. What a awesome place for mediation and letting go of stress of daily living. So healing for me to be there."

  • Cute Cottage

    "This cottage is perfect for sightseeing in Ft Worth. It's about 15-20 min to lots of fun places to see. We loved the Stockyards. Great food and shopping. You've got to see the Long Horns and the gunfight show. Lego Land is about 25 min away. And of course Six Flags is a must. The pictures don't show how big the cottage really is. The rooms are large, clean, beds are great. Everything you need is supplied. There were 8 of us and we never bumped into each other once. We highly recommend this comfy cottage to everyone. We will definitely stay here again. From the creaky floors to the cactus out front....this place is great. Thank you Virginia for all your hospitality!"

  • Awesome weekend!

    "My family stayed at this house last weekend. My daughter enjoyed sun bathing on the party deck of the dock. We roasted hot dogs and S'mores in the fire pit. The house was clean. I had several communications with Jason before and after the stay. He was very prompt and helpful in his replies."

Prairies & Lakes Travel Tips

Texas Prairies and Lakes Vacation Rentals Near the Capitol

Texas has so much to offer that it is hard to choose a place to vacation. The coast with their sandy white beaches, the historical areas of the Rio Grande Valley, or the lure of the big city are all very inviting. When you pick the Texas prairies and lakes vacation rentals from VRBO, you will have almost everything in one giant package. This area encompasses a fraction of the state of Texas yet has so much to offer. You can find a great lakefront home with all of the needed amenities, a luxurious bedroom, spacious bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens and lots of room to enjoy your family. If you are more interested in the big city, then Dallas or Fort Worth could have the perfect home that is close to all of the attractions that you have come to Texas to see. You will never feel cramped in these Texas-sized accommodations if you have a large group so plan your next vacation in the “Lone Star State.”

So Much to do at Texas Prairies and Lakes Lake Rentals

If you are interested in bringing your boat along for your vacation, you will want to find your perfect Texas lake rental. Several of the properties will have a marina where you can dock your boat or actually have a boat slip at the lake house. You can spend your days waterskiing, swimming or catching that fish to grill on your BBQ. Enjoy a sunrise from the covered patio while overlooking the lake. A glass of wine is the perfect accompaniment at the backyard fire pit for the relaxation you will experience in a lake house.

Your lake house will not be that far from the city so that you can spend some of your vacation time in the “Metroplex” area of Dallas and Fort Worth. This area is called the Blackland Prairie which was an important part of Texas as the legendary cattle drives moved over this land. Parks, museums, a zoo, an aquarium and sports can all be found with a short drive from your Texas Prairies and Lakes lake rentals. History buffs will like visiting the John Fitzgerald Kennedy Memorial or The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza where there are more than 400 photographs of the former President’s life and assassination. Grayline offers bus tours of the Dallas and Fort Worth areas.

Arlington is home to the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium so football fans will be right near the action if they choose to stay at one of the desirable homes in this location. There are also many outdoor sports at any time of the year you decide to vacation. You can golf, go horseback riding, and play tennis, fish, waterski, or ice skate in the winter. Rodeo fans can watch professional rodeo on weekends from April through September.

A Shopper’s Paradise Close to Texas Prairies and Lakes Lodging

Wherever you stay in the Texas Prairies and Lakes lodging area, you will want to travel to Dallas for some serious shopping. This utopia offers the Galleria Dallas with more than 200 stores to choose from located near the intersection of Dallas parkway and LBJ Freeway. All of the well-known department stores are there as well as an ice skating rink for the children or adults that do not want to shop. The legendary Neiman Marcus store at Main and Ervay streets has polar bear rugs, camels and everything in between. If you are looking for an eclectic array of shops and eateries, check out The West End Marketplace located in an old cracker factory.

If your tastes run to a more down-to-earth shopping experience, you can visit Traders Village in Grand Prairie with over 120 acres of the best flea market finds in the state of Texas. There are also rides, an arcade, a carousel and daily events so everyone in your family can have a great time.

Traveling to Texas Prairies and Lakes Vacation Homes

It is very easy to get to the great state of Texas but Dallas is the best airport to land at for the Texas prairies and lakes vacation homes. This airport is just 18 miles from downtown Dallas and very close to many of the great vacation homes of this region. You can also take Amtrak into the city as an extension of your vacation plans. Major highways to take you from the city include I-35, I-30, and I-45.
