About the property

Chateau / Country House, 6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Our Denton County country guest house which is located in the heart of the DFW Metroplex…approximately 40 miles northwest of downtown Dallas, 40 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth and 60 miles from Arlington.

The restored Texas log farmhouse is nestled amongst gorgeous 100+ year old live Oaks trees. There are spectacular views with some pitch and roll offering the true beauty of this impressive countryside. Have fun watching the horses graze, deer feeding at dawn and all the wonderful bird species that come our way. Located on 22 acres down a secluded country road.

Enjoy the beauty of a clear Texas night before bed and a fresh cup of coffee or tea on one of the two large porches, complete with rockers, while you watch our magnificent Texas sunrises and sunsets to relax your body and soul. Also take time to sit by the pool while sipping on your favorite beverage, or enjoy the wood burning fireplace inside!

The house has six bedrooms, 4 baths. Downstairs is the master bedroom with queen bed, master bath with double sinks off the bedroom. The other bedroom downstairs has twin beds with a bathroom off the side. There is a family room with a flat screen TV, DVD player, wood burning fire place, fully stocked kitchen and small dry bar. The glassed in back porch shares the wood burning fire place with the family room and has a sitting area and dining table.

Upstairs are four bedrooms (two with queen bed and two with double beds) and two baths. Please note that the log cabin design provides for an open concept and the upstairs bedrooms do not have doors. There are privacy screens available to shut off the bedrooms from the hallway. Also upstairs is a game room with the ping pong table.

Los Arboles recently adopted a small dog that someone left out on the street and she has adopted Los Arboles. So, BD (Barn Dog) will be there to greet you at your arrival. She loves all animals and humans so she should provide you and your dogs that are accompaning you with much attention.

The property is convenient to activities in Dallas, Fort Worth, and is very close to Lake Lewisville where you can rent fishing or ski boats or personal water crafts.

About The Owner

John and Ellen bought this property needing more land for our expanding horse business. The property had a lovely log home on it so we decided to turn the home into a vacation rental.

We loved fixing up the home for peoples' gatherings and have loved the knowing people are sharing good times there.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2010

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know that we had a completely wonderful time Thurs. through Sat. a.m.

My husband (who is not one to get too excited about anything) said it was the most

perfect time he'd spent in a long time. The weather was perfect and the house was

so great! Our 3 teenage granddaughters cried when they had to leave B.D. She even

sat on people's laps like the great lapdog she is. Thanks again for sharing this

remarkable place with us.

Great Place/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our wedding weekend for my daughter. The venue was 6 minutes away in Aubrey so no one was rushing or fighting traffic. The house was very homey. There was a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us when we arrived. There was enough space for the 12 of us. The property is very relaxing. This was a well stocked home. Great stay.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Just celebrated Mom's 80th birthday with family and had the BEST TIME EVER!!! Watching young people play kickball, exploring the pond while chasing butterflies, and relaxing on the front porch all while enjoying being together. She smiled the entire weekend! Thanks for such a beautiful birthday to remember!

Can't wait to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

Had a group of life long friends of 40 plus years meet here for an extended weekend and it was amazing. BD hung out with us all weekend. In the mornings we rocked and had coffee on the front porch, during the day the girls hung out at the pool and the fellas hung out at the pond. Down the street, we bought fresh eggs and had breakfast in the sun porch. This house has everything you need for a great weekend! Look forward to staying there again!

wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a girls weekend and were very pleased. Loved how you feel like you are out in the country, but can drive less than two miles and have many options for eating, convenience stores, and retail. LOVED the pool! And, BD greeted us as soon as we arrived and spent about the whole weekend with us. What a sweet dog! In spite of it being really hot during the day, both evenings were very pleasant to sit out back, with a wonderful breeze, and we even enjoyed the firepit. We only left the house once--to eat dinner at Fuzzy's Taco. It was a wonderful, relaxing weekend and this is the perfect house for that!

The colony


  • 5 of 5

My family rented the house to stay in while coming from Tennessee we also had my wedding there. It was perfect with tons of room for the wedding, party and children to be outside without having to be smashed inside like other weddings. We got so many compliments about how beautiful everything was and so many questions about how we found it! So an awesome place to stay and great place if you need room for something bigger.
