Best place in Twain Harte

  • 5 of 5

Lone Star Lodge is the most amazing place we have ever stayed. We had 10 adults, price was very reasonable. The pictures do not do the place justice. This place looks so much better in person. Place was clean, spacious and equipped with everything you can possibly need. Everything was provided, linens, towels..etc. this was the first place where everyone just wanted to stay at the cabin versus going out anywhere. This cabin was so close to town, restaurants and the best part, 10-15 minute drive from black oak casino. We would definitely rent again. Anyone who gives a bad review must ended up at the wrong cabin because this place was one for our books! Thank you Jackie for letting us stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your enthusiastic review! We love how close we are to the center of town in Twain Harte with all the shops and restaurants within a short walk. Despite our convenient location the Lone Star still feels as if it's in a secluded forest. We try to ensure the house has everything a family could need so that when they arrive, they can simply relax. We really do appreciate respectful renters so thanks so thanks so much for leaving the house in such good shape. We hope to see you again in the future.

Amazing property that leaves nothing to be desired.

  • 5 of 5

We came up to Twain Harte (as we do every year) with two other families for our holiday getaway weekend. Not only was Lone Star impeccably updated and renovated, but the owner made every possible effort to ensure that our stay went off without a hitch. Literally, the hardest things about staying here are carrying your bags in from the car (and vice versa), and of course leaving when the time comes.

Everything about this listing is exactly as described, and pictured... there are no surprises involved. (Except of course how comfortable, and at home you feel the moment you arrive)

Amazing place... Thanks again Jackie!

Perfect house for a mom/daughter weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Five moms and five teenage daughters spent the weekend in Twain Harte at the Lone Star. The house was perfect for our getaway. Plenty of comfortable beds for the moms, and the teens loved the loft space - it was like their own little apartment :). We all enjoyed the hot tub, and the moms spent the mornings with coffee and evenings with wine on the front porch. Super clean and well appointed. Looks exactly like the photos! Thanks for opening your lovely home to our group!

Owner's Response: We love women's groups! You guys always leave the house so neat and tidy. I'm glad everyone enjoyed the space at the Lone Star. Most teens really love the giant 70 inch TV in the upstairs media room. We hope to see you again in the future!

Lodge Luxe

  • 5 of 5

Six adults and 7 boys stayed at the Lone Star Lodge to play in the snow and celebrate my son's 10th birthday. The skiing at Dodge Ridge was fantastic but the best part of our birthday get away were the evenings spent back at the house. The media room has a huge 70 inch TV which thoroughly entertained all of the boys. They brought their own DVD's but the house was already stocked with many new movies. While the boys were upstairs enjoying the TV, the adults were outside in the hot tub, which I must say say was in pristine condition. After a long day of skiing the hot tub was just what we needed for our aching muscles. It was the perfect gathering place for our three couples and gang of boys. Thanks for the memories!

Owner's Response: Santa visited the Lone Star Lodge and left a giant, new 70 inch Smart TV in the media room! Glad to hear the men and boys approved. Isn't the hot tub the best after a long day in the snow? Happy birthday to your son and hope to see you all again soon.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Every year we rent a vacation house for a family retreat. The Lone Star Lodge is by far our most favorite. We had six adults and eight kids between us. The kids loved the huge upstairs media room and the large flat yards. The adults loved having a separate space downstairs to relax by the fire. All our beds were new and extremely comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is for gourmet cooks and all four of the bathrooms are beautiful with rustic tile and wood. We have stayed in other homes in the area and the Lone Star has the best of everything. Being able to walk five minutes to the village center with all of the restaurants was perfect, yet the house was far enough away to be very quiet. By far, everyone agreed that our evenings together in the hot tub was the very best. The hot tub put this house over the top in terms of vacation rentals amenities. We will be returning to the Lone Star soon for ski season.

Owner's Response: We agree that we have the best location! It's great to be able to walk to town and not have to pack everyone into the car to enjoy and evening out. I think the hot tub is the most fun the during snow season. We look forward to seeing you this winter.
