Very clean.Everything you need are all provided in the house.All bedrooms & beds are comfortable.
We had a very nice weekend getaway from Dallas.Built up some memorable moments with my grandkids.I didn't let them take their I pod and tablet.They didn't even miss it.We were always gathered in the den,playing games.Overall it was a very wonderful and memorable time in your house.Thank you Hal & Jane for letting us stay in your beautiful house Oh,also the welcome cake so delicious.Jane,even though I only met and spoke to you short time when you brought us towels I could tell you are such a nice person.
So delighted to have you! I couldn't believe how cleaned up the house was with so many that stayed.
I found a gold pillow case and a boy's pair of grey pants I would be happy to send you if you'd like to send me your address.
Very nice home!
We enjoyed our stay and Hal and Jane were both very kind and helpful!
Beautiful well kept home.and well furnished
My wife and I needed a get-away for a couple of days. The home was beautiful, very clean and well kept and with all the furnishing you would need available. Very quite and relaxing. Only the fishing was not at advertised. Lots of turtles in the very small pond behind the house. Pretty in its own way to look at with its banks well kept but no fish.
Great place for a large family and very close to a really nice grocery store. Would recommend it to my family.
We've edited our advertisement for fishing in the pond. We're not sure what happened to all the fish we stocked! Are going to have the pond tested to see if there is a problem with the water possibly killing them off or perhaps we have someone fishing the pond out!
The home is relaxing. The kitchen is well organized. We loved sitting on the back deck by the pond.
The home is in a relaxing, peaceful area. The kitchen (and whole house) is very well organized. We loved sitting on the back deck looking at the pond.
Beautiful house with great scenery and close to the lake.
My friends and I stayed here for a girls weekend and had an amazing time! The house was very clean and new feeling. Very accommodating and had plenty of room for us to stay.
The scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed eating breakfast outside on the patio while looking at turtles in the pond.
It was also nice to be within 10 -15 minutes from Tyler. We would definitely stay here again!
Great property with plenty of room!
We booked this house as part of a Girl Scout getaway. The fact that there were blow up mattresses with a pump and sheets for each mattress was a HUGE plus! We were able to pile all of the girls in the living room for an epic sleepover while the moms got a good night sleep in the many comfortable beds. Jane was very responsive and answered all of my questions quickly. I was able to drive into Chandler within 10-15 minutes to get to Brookshire’s for groceries. It was a relatively short drive to the Texas State Railroad the next morning. Overall, we couldn’t have been happier with our stay!
