Very very nice home
You won't be disappointed. This home was just excellent. Owners are great to deal with.
Great house and well stocked for large groups!
We had a great time and everyone was comfortable. Even the kids talked about how great the bunk bed mattresses were.
Beautiful house, beautiful location!
A really great house with plenty of space and great amenities. The location is gorgeous and made me want to live in Texas even more than I do already!
Only one observation- the door to the patio and backyard was often a major hangout for various bugs. We always had to make sure to get in and out very quickly lest they follow us inside.
Overall, a great property and place to stay.
We have extermination services quarterly. Unfortunately this is one of the hazards of country life!
Well kept, very clean and updated property. 6 adults for 3 of our 5 day stay and 4 of us the first 2 days. We really enjoyed the home and all it's amenities. Beautiful home. Able to park two cars in garage. Fully equipped kitchen. Afghans for relaxing in the recliners at night. Everything for comfort was available. Missed a washer and dryer, but with the short stay this was not a real problem. Close enough to Canton for the Trade Days, and enjoyed the movie and restaurants in Tyler. Spent a day in Waco at the Magnolia Market and The Dr. Pepper Museum.
Beautiful home with spacious living areas
