  • Wonderful, family friendly home

    "Our party was two families with small children, and this home could not have worked better for us. The home is very comfortable and nicely outfitted, and the kitchen and eating areas worked out very well. The highlight of the property for us was the outdoor spaces. We made constant use of the rope swings and all of the room for the kids to run and play. Proximity to Homestead Heritage and Cafe Homestead is a real advantage. That place seems to get better and to have more to offer every time we go, and the cafe is one of my favorite places anywhere to eat breakfast. Last, and importantly, Grace is a fantastic host. She greeted us warmly, took care of us during our stay, and was very responsive. We will definitely be back."

  • Excellent Rental

    "This vacation rental is fabulous! It was very clean with kitchen pots/pans, plates, coffee cups w/coffee, glassware, sheets, linens, and pillows provided. Every thing mentioned in the description is exactly how it is. There is one screened in porch so you do not have to deal with bugs. You can see the lake from the porch which is not far away. A grill was provided on the unscreened porch which is also very large. There were 10 people that stayed with plenty of room for everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again and would recommend if you are looking for a very clean 5-star location. The owners, Bill and Sandy are great to work with making sure you have everything you need for a great stay."

  • Wedding weekend

    "The property was wonderful. There was lots of room for our whole group. We enjoyed dancing on the back porch and cooking big breakfasts together in the mornings. The wedding was in Springtown so this was the perfect place for us to relax in between the activities. We had everything we needed and then some . We hope to come back again."

  • Perfect Weekend

    "Loved this house, great location and even greater owners. Mary Ann is a joy to work with. She has put together the best Welcome Guide, directions to every place you would want to go and lots of restaurant info. The location is perfect, safe residential neighborhood close to downtown. If our travels bring us back to the Dallas area, we would stay here again."
