About Lloyd Haevischer

This cottage has been in the family for over 30 years. After we built our cabin in the mountains we began to travel and enjoyed staying in VRBO homes. Instead of selling the house, we decided to share it with others who might be traveling to the Grapevine area. We enjoy meeting people from all parts of the country and welcome you to spend time at Lonesome Dove Retreat.

Lloyd Haevischer purchased this house in 1980

Why Lloyd Haevischer chose Prairies & Lakes

We chose the name Lonesome Dove Retreat because we are only 2 miles from the historic Lonesome Dove Baptist Church which was the first established church in the area in 1846. Author Larry McMurtry actually chose the name Lonesome Dove for his epic novel and mini-series after seeing a Lonesome Dove Church bus in the parking lot of a restaurant.

What makes this house unique

Grapevine is a charming town with something for everyone. Whether it is shopping, sporting events or Texas Wine Trails Grapevine is sure to please. Our cozy cottage is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but it is close enough to the excitement of the DFW area to make it worth your stay. After a long day of shopping, touring the wineries or attending one of the area’s many sporting events, you can enjoy our patio and hot tub complete with a flat screen TV and gas grill.

Rare quiet Texas Gem full of love

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully decorated, pleasant in every instance, well maintained, quiet, in a lovely neighborhood, and close enough to Dallas / Fort Worth to get anywhere easily, yet situated in an island of nature. The aura of this home was one filled with love and happiness. Beautiful, natural, thoughtful, intelligent. Can you tell I really loved it? Thank you so very much to the owners for this rare retreat from corporate life!
