                                                    Can't imagine how it could have been better for my large group.

                                                    Beautiful property!

                                                    David W.Dallas TX

                                                    Great getaway! Relax in the shade under all the trees with great veiws of water from every room and patio chairs of private ponds.

                                                    Room for large family and abundant beds and parking.

                                                    Thanks Kim, we will be back to this oasis again.

                                                    Great weekend!

                                                    Alexis K.

                                                    We had a blast! Great set up for 6 adults and six kiddos. Property was awesome! Thank you Kim and Philip for sharing your little piece of heaven.

                                                    Thank you so much Alexis! So happy you and you family had a great time. Come back anytime.

                                                    Great cabin and bunkhouse

                                                    Edward J.

                                                    Rented this cabin for a campout with a group of six dads and daughters. We could not have picked a better place. The owner was great to work with. The girls loved the bunkhouse. The dads loved the house. The fire pit was a great treat. The swimming pond out front was a hit. The property was clean. And we felt safe letting the girls explore the trails around the house. Very peaceful and quit yet close enough to Athens that we took advantage of the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center about 20 minutes away and the NY, TX Zipline Adventure about 25 minutes away. A truly great place if you are camping with a group of children.

                                                    Cannot Imagine Any Place Better!!

                                                    Kelly F.Arp, TX

                                                    We rented this lovely property as part of an pre-wedding event for my son and his lovely bride to be... we all fell in love with the property at first site!! In lieu of a traditional rehearsal dinner, they wanted to be able to spend time with family and friends that had come so far to share this life time event... and this property was the PERFECT place!! The house and the bunk house are marvelous!! We had a full blown Texas bar-b-que under the pole barn by the bunk house which was perfect for feeding everyone buffet style... we also had a live band that had plenty of room on the terraced patios in front of the house! The front yard was perfect for round tables... we had lanterns and flowers! All overlooking the gorgeous ponds!! which were great for swimming!!! Everyone commented on how we should have just had the wedding there is was so beautiful!! If you are planning any type of event, whether it is a family get away or a major family event... I would highly recommend this property!! We are already thinking of all kinds of events to use it for in the future! And to top it all off... the owner is so friendly and accommodating!! I just couldn't imagine our experience being any better!! Thank you so much!!

                                                    A Shangri-La In Texas

                                                    RachFort Worth, Texas

                                                    The pictures do not do justice. The house and property surrounding it is immaculate and beautiful, clean, the house has an interesting and great layout. There is lots of trees all over the property, which was great because it provided a lot of shade from the Texas heat. We were a group of 12 mixed-ages ranging from 4 years old to 53. THE SWIMMING AREA IS HUGE!!! (I've seen many stock ponds, swimholes on other properties, but never this big) it was a surprise to us. We all went swimming all day long and got sunburned, but it was worth the laughter and the fun. My husband commented that he liked that the kids could swim and we didn't have to worry about weirdos lurking with a camera phone, I agreed. I really liked the privacy and the fact that whether the kids were swimming or playing in the woods, we didn't have to worry about them getting kidnapped or being around strangers. The rooms are HUGE, and each with it's own full bathroom (again the pics do not do justice) we all agreed to that when we got there, we were surprised at how beautiful and well laid out everything was. The owners are absolutely wonderful, welcoming, and extremely helpful. Kim you are AWESOME!!!!. Everyone had a great time, and the kids as well as the adults spent a lot of time laughing, and we got a lot of good memories out of this trip. If you have kids and want them to be able to have acres to roam and have fun, this is the place. If you are an adult and want to have space for peace or free time, this is the place. If you're an avid bird watcher or like to get some hiking in, there are trails that go into the woods. You will be able to see the stars and moon CLEARLY (unless there is clouds), since there is no surrounding town lights or timed-outdoor lamp posts to obstruct the view of the night sky. Again, there is so much stuff that one can do, you're never bored. Oh, a tip for those that do take little ones that can't swim, bring floats, and or life vests, we had two in our group a 4 year old and a 5 year old that couldn't swim and even without vests, they were in the water and able to enjoy it on the shallow end. If you to the right side of the smaller lake, you'll see a sandy spot near the sand path road by the trees that seemed to be the side that had a great gradual down slope, instead of huge drop-off. In closing, we all had a wonderful time at the ranch and we will be back again. A big hug and a huge thanks to the owners who have allowed us to use their Shangri-La.
