"I brought 9 teenagers and another chaperone for some academic competition in Waco. The property was perfect. It was convenient to the venue and grocery store. The house had more than enough room for all of us. There were ample kitchen supplies although my student chef would have liked a bigger skillet :). Making our own meals and eating together was great. In their down time, the kids really enjoyed playing on the swings and zipline and watching the sheep. I liked that not having a TV made us spend time together. We were close enough to the Waco Convention center to go back and forth with no problem. We made a fire in the fire pit, cooked burgers and hot dogs on the grill, and overall thoroughly enjoyed the stay. For the students, the best part about the trip was the house (and shakes at The Health Camp!). Grace was wonderful and took care of all my questions before and upon arrival. Thank you for a wonderful experience. We will be back!"

"We stayed at the Roadhouse for 5 days with people of all ages and everyone had a great time. The location is lovely, the house is beautiful and fully equipped...just like being at home but better. The organic farm in the back is great...the kids got to milk goats, hold baby chicks, etc. Michael and Ron are amazing hosts, treating us to fresh eggs and goat milk yogurt. Amazing! Where else can you find a gorgeous lake house, beautiful scenery, adorable livestock and amazing hosts all at the same place? Trick question, no where. Go stay at the Roadhouse and you won't regret it!"

"We cant begin to express our gratitude for an amazing family getaway. The moment you drive up to the cottage on the lake, life all of a sudden just seems so simple. You are greeted upon arrival with the soft sounds of music and the smell of basil and lavender that only the finest 5 star resorts in Austria can offer . Somehow Michael and Ron make this happen in Texas. It honestly is like the moment you walk through the perfectly decorated cottage you are transported to a cottage in the Alps . You cant help but take a deep breath and literally all worries simply fade away . Your eyes slowly make their way to the most breathtaking view of the lake .. you cant help but open the back door and take in the lush mystical lakefront that invites you to your private dock . You pass a perfect firepot for a night of SMORES and Stories and you make your way to the PERFECT DOCK … Which has kayaks and paddles for every age . There also is the perfect set of outdoor teak furniture with umbrella for an amazing lake side lunch or dinner . Also 4 loungers if you are the sun bathing kind. The water is SIMPLE perfect in this area of the lake with a nice sandy bottom that is fantastic on your feet . I could have sat there for 2 hours at that moment but we have a 6 and 8 year old and they were running back to the house because they were ready to jump in that lake . On the way back up to the house a 10 sec walk mind you … I noticed that they have life vests for every shape and size as well . Not to mention every outdoor game from horseshoes to croquet . There isn’t a detail that is forgotten .After opening the door back to the cottage I am suddenly again greeted with the 5 star luxury feeling and again a deep breath just cant be helped . I venture into the kitchen where I am started unloading our food … where SURPRISE in the frig is ORGANIC farm FRESH eggs from their chicken & ducks … Around the corner I am greeted by a “SMORES ” kit where I find my daughter with a big grin holding the HUGE CHOCOLATE bar & bag of marshmallows… she lets out a holler and says THIS IS THE BEST PLACE EVER . I just half to laugh and say ..YES YES IT IS !!!!,There are surprises around every corner of the magical cottage . You can feel Michaels and Ron’s impeccable attention to detail and the care that each and every guest feels like they are truly IMPORTANT to them .
From milking the Goats with Eric who’s zest for life and knowledge about organic farming is simply wonderful . SIMPLY AMAZING !"
