About Mark and Tricia Richner
We bought the property (45+ acres) in 2010 and renovated the house that was on it for my parents. We had so such fun that we decided to build a workshop which we then made into the 2 story facility you see here. We're sort of fixer-uppers on overdrive.The workshop is a fully functioning working saw-mill, business. We did everything you see here ourselves - meaning my dear husband and dad did all of the work, from the shiplap wall to the tile in the showers. Phew, glad it's done.
Mark and Tricia Richner purchased this House in 2010
Why Mark and Tricia Richner chose Temple
We just love being in the city but secluded from the rest of the world. It is QUIET and DARK at night.
What makes this House unique
Lots of outdoor areas and inside is as unique as you will find in this area. Great location - close to major cities, but off the beaten path, quiet and serene. Great for families - corn hole, ladder ball, large jingo provided.

Perfect place for a family getaway!!!
The place was set back inside a secure ranch, surrounded by beautiful trees and scenery, and very private. Often times we never meet the owners, but this time we met or talked on the phone. The owners were very responsive, a pleasure to talk to, and very supportive. The "house" was absolutely gorgeous and was perfect for our family to share time together for our daughter's graduation. It had everything we needed and more. The beds in the Loft were very comfortable. It was evident a lot of work was put into this place, and the woodwork was beautiful. Thank you for sharing your home!
Beautiful place. Would not return.
Beautiful place. Would not go back. Not a good place to go if you have a boat and need room to turn around. I walked outside in the morning to set up breakfast outside for the kids and overheard the owner raising her voice to my husband about ruts in the grass. I understand she was upset, but she could have chosen to be more professional/polite about the situation. She also showed up right at 10am on the day we were leaving. I would not consider this place private.
Great Place, Quiet wooded area. Plenty of beds and room. Everyone had a great time.
The place was just beautiful....was a great place for my sisters and I to spend together!
The Loft it’s self was just outstanding!!! My family and I loved it! If you smoke this is definitely not the place for you!!! PROHIBITED 🚭 ...24 hr cameras ....and their business is on the other side of the loft and they are there everyday!!!! So no sleeping in ...which we had stayed up till 4 AM waiting for family to arrive from traveling....2 from Hawaii and 2 from Michigan...and couldn’t not sleep that day due to saws and banging from the owners business on the other side of wall!! Overall the place was magnificent....wish we could have spent more time with family!! Went by way too fast!
Yes, we are on 50 heavily wooded acres of with pristine old growth trees and therefore we must be extra careful about any potential source of sparks that might lead to an unintentional fire. We are grateful for everyone's understanding and cooperation in this matter.
Clean, loved the decor, great place!
We loved the open space, the large Jenga set on the porch, the ping pong table, and the awesome furniture. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks so much Tricia!
Say YES to the Dress and YES to The Loft!
It was PERFECT!! We hosted a “Say YES to the Dress” bridesmaids fitting party - there were 8 of us- and we had the best time ever!! Mark & Trica even designed my daughter a beautiful guest book - the woodwork and attention to detail at The Loft was well thought out and beautiful.
I would highly recommend this property and these hosts! We will be returning for a girls weekend!
We LOVED it!!
