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 Grapevine
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.

Charming house, very homey and comfortable. We stayed for 5 nights, cooked in a lot and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Nice covered patio area where we spent most of our time, love the gas fire ring. Thanks Lonesome Dove!
Perfect location and the perfect home for our needs
This home is so perfectly located on a quiet street that is only given minutes from downtown grapevine. The choices you have for dining are unlimited and unique. The hot tub works perfect and the patio gives you the privacy you want when relaxing. This home was exactly as advertised and the beds were really comfy.
Cute and comfortable house in a quiet neighborhood
This house was as described and was very 'comfortable & welcoming'. It is just a short drive from the DFW airport which is a plus on travel days if you are traveling by air. Yet is is located in a quiet residential area with little traffic. The owner is very responsive to inquiries and was helpful with questions I had about nearby businesses. If you are looking for a nice, clean 2 bedroom house near Lake Grapevine, this is your place.
Perfect for family get away
Great location and experience. Good privacy, parking, and hot tub. Would stay here again!
Cute little house and close to everything we had planned!!!
From the moment we stepped inside, it felt like home. Comfortable, cozy and welcoming.
All details are exactly as described and pictured. Tucked away in a nice quiet well kept neighborhood, Lonesome Dove allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of mid-cities DFW. You would not believe you were just 2.1 miles removed from the main highway (TX 114).
Staying here while attending the XO Marriage Conference, the home provided us the privacy and quiet alone time we wanted and were in such need of. This was our first experience with VRBO and our expectations were exceeded.
We would stay here again and definitely recommend Lonesome Dove Retreat to others.
