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.

Served us well!

  • 5 of 5

Pretty inside & out, soothing woodsy setting w/ the amazingly perfect windows to enjoy it. Subdued, tasteful, mostly utilitarian decorating instead of overload you see in some cabins or B&Bs. Hosts literally thought of EVERYTHING you might need, name it. An extremely well-stocked kitchen & bathroom & shockingly generous supply of edibles/drinkables/goodies. We used the chiminea (fat sticks easily gleaned from yard to feed it) & also the little grill, nice. Enjoyed the whimsical yard art, again, liked their tastes. There was even a bottle tree outside to trap bad spirits, must be doing its job, lol. Reception for Wi-Fi and cell good. There were CDs & DVDs & a player but the TV also had cable, so 7 channels, I think, hope you like old Westerns & Forensic Files reruns, we did. Of the few DVDS they had, one was an older fave of ours, The Good Girl, so great to see again. Was cool, rainy weekend so we didn't walk afield, maybe next time but then next time might order up another rainy weekend, works for us. A few times we heard a braying donkey neighbor some distance, didn't bother us, made up for not hearing or seeing much of the wildlife other reviewers talked about. Did see birds, squirrels and an armadillo. When I say hosts thought of everything, I mean it, no, really, you'll find every single little thing you'd ever need, plus books to read (finished one from home and left it & a magazine for the stack) & cabin had a binder of instructions about anything & everything inside the place (check it out, we found lots of crucial info in there) plus a roundup of local things to do, nice mentions of the very fine Caldwell Zoo & the Tyler State Park. We welcomed guidance on how to start shower (pull ring down from faucet, aha!). If I had to say anything remotely negative it's that the steep stairs challenged me as I'm recovering from an injury. But the bed at the top made up for it. What else. Well, it was just nearly too perfect & afraid we might have trouble booking it during later, finer weather. We'd gone there for the singer-songwriter series, this one for the insanely talented Jeff Black who performed at the Old Firehouse. We had to skip out of the performance halfway through & head home early, ever-on-call husband had sudden work obligation pop up so we didn't get all the good out of Edom, our cabin & the concert, but we still left happy. Thx to you, Mr/Mr W

Beautiful cabin in the heart of East Texas.

We enjoyed our stay and most of all the big windows that brought nature into the home. Would definitely recommend if you are looking to get away and relax.

Nice and clean and definitely off the beaten path!

  • 4 of 5

Nice hosts and nice property. Stairs to upstairs are very tall, and narrow, so takes some getting used to. No rails on inclined path to house, or on the porches, so not great place for people with walking issues. Was beautiful place to wake up in the morning.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed this peaceful, quiet cabin in the woods. James was very kind to have fresh eggs, cream and coffee waiting for us. Everything we needed was in the cabin. We enjoyed our weekend in east Texas!
