About James and Mary Wilhite

We built this cabin in 1996 as our primary residence and now rent it out for others to enjoy. My Wife and I love the peace and quiet of country living and the ability to take a hike in the woods for quiet time.

If someone asked me describe your stay in two words I would say easy: Outstanding everything!

  • 5 of 5

This place is AMAZING! It is tucked in off the road so the only thing that you see are trees. It is literally everything that I was hoping for! My two kids loved it as well. We used the small Weber and grilled up some juicy steaks and enjoyed each other's company, there is no WiFi; yeah!!! The owners live "kinda next door" but you wouldn't know it on how thick the trees are and are just wonderful!

What more can I say but thank you for giving my family and me a wonderful place to stay for a relaxing few days and great memories. I hope that we are able to come again.

Thank you

A great template for our own tinier house dreams

  • 4 of 5

You almost couldn't ask for a better setting & the house is great. The one window unit worked perfectly to keep the temps comfortable, even if it's a little loud in the loft. The couch and bed are both super comfortable, but if the thoughts of "watchers in the woods" bother you, be aware this little cabin has windows a plenty, but not a single window covering. The stairs are a hair steep & would benefit from some rubber treads-especially during night runs to the downstairs.

Overall, a great little place close enough to Tyler to be close enough!

Mystical Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at the beautiful Blue Moon Gardens and was immediately greeted by beautiful flowers and vegetation. There I was taken to the Mariposa Cabin. The wind god was conveniently placed to breeze us through the secret garden and into the living room. Everything here comes to life! The art work inside and outside of the house all hold very deep meaning. We explored the grounds and walked with the cows, chickens, and their horse, Midnight! All of the animals reflected the serenity of the cabin and landscape! During our walk, James came and found us on his golf cart and gave us a warm and elaborate, but understandable layout of the land. My friends and I spent the greater part of the night bonding in nature. The elemental spirit, whose face hung above the bed, guarded us as we slept. In the morning we strolled through the gardens once more, while becoming acquainted with the cheerful Mrs. Mary! God has definitely touched James, Mary, and their property!! God Bless! (Perfect place to have observed the beautiful Full Moon on Memorial Day!)
