Gorgeous, comfortable and relaxing.
What a wonderful property! Quiet, private and very much a retreat. Very responsive hosts. Loved the house and the entire experience. Would definitely come back!
Beautiful house, quiet and very peaceful location
This was our second stay at this beautiful home this year! The location is very near Tyler and this trip we visited some of the local wineries and the Tyler Rose Festival.
The house literally has everything you need except food.
You won’t regret renting this beautiful house and Hal and Jane are great hosts.
Oh Karen! Thanks so much! We set out to make this home a place where WE would want to stay if away. How rewarding it is to hear that we've accomplished that. You made our day!

Great home with all the amenities, beautiful views and very comfortable!
Beautiful home in a beautiful setting that we truly enjoyed. It has all the amenities needed and was very comfortable. Hope to stay there again!
Clean. Quiet. Loved it
Just like the pictures showed
Wish we had chosen to stay longer.
The home is lovely, the beds so comfortable.
Only two things kept it from being perfect and the Maris' had no control of either, the pond behind the house was yucky and the weather was even yuckier. Thank goodness the A/C worked great as the temp and humidity was high.
We still enjoyed grilling hamburgers outside and enjoyed eating inside. Everything we needed to prepare our meals was easily found in kitchen, even briquets and starter fuel for grill in garage.
It was a very quiet and relaxing trip
The other two couples want us to plan another trip....and soon.
Very very nice home
You won't be disappointed. This home was just excellent. Owners are great to deal with.
