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.

Quiet and central to Dallas/Fort Worth Area

  • 5 of 5

Great little property in a quiet lakeside neighbourhood. With two full size bedrooms, laundry and a fenced backyard, we really enjoyed returning to this property each evening during our stay in the area. It really did feel like 'coming home'. The only thing that we might suggest is an update to the kitchen flooring and decluttering the overflowing cupboards. More is less in this case. Thanks again. We would highly recommend to other travellers.

Perfect little getaway in Grapevine

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with my 88 year old mother to Grapevine for my son's wedding and rented this sweet little spot. It was perfect for us. Two well appointed queen bedrooms, well appointed kitchen, dining room, etc. The one bathroom is small but very very nice, with everything you'd want: hairdryer, nice towels, etc. Loved having the laundry room. The best part was the hot tub--super easy to take the cover off by yourself. A great way to unwind after the rehearsal dinner, wedding and the morning after! Great location, close to downtown, Cowboys Golf Course, etc. Quiet neighborhood. Bluebonnets growing in the front garden! The owner was great, communicated quickly and promptly. Highly recommend. Thanks for our home away from home!

Quint home in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with our stay. The house is clean and it's obvious that someone has put effort into the rustic decor. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you may need. The desk/office setup would be very useful for business travelers. We were visiting DFW with a two year old and a five month old and found this house to be very child friendly! I highly recommend this place if you have kids. It has a nice, clean pack-n-play available and there were a few small odd and end toys and books that my son enjoyed playing with. The backyard is fenced in and was well maintained, great for kids to play in. The patio area was perfect for hanging out at the end of a day of being out and about. The house is in a good location: close enough to be near attractions, yet far enough away for it to be quiet at night. Management promptly answered when I had a question. I have no complaints about this property.
