A comfortable, conveniently located country lodging. This remodeled three bedroom ranch style house, with board and batten look, is the essence of quintessential small town America--superb for a weekend getaway for two or an extended stay with friends or family.
Relax on the front porch of a summers eve or gather around the fireplace when outside temperatures cool. Sit under the spreading “pecan” tree, enjoying the prairie breeze while serenaded by natures musicians. Enjoy a variety of games in the great room or the great outdoors.
The great room layout exudes a “hearth-warming” ambiance under the spaciousness of vaulted ceilings. The fireplace seating, cozy and relaxing, invites tranquil conversation. This is the ideal setting to enjoy an after dinner beverage and revisit the pleasures of the day. The formal dining area is large enough for all to be comfortably seated. The well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar provides dining, as well as, entertaining options.
When it's time to retire, nestle into a snug restful slumber, in this “down home” country cottage. You'll have three bedrooms from which to choose. The master has a queen size bed and a full bath, complete with tub or shower, and walk in closet. Before dimming the lights at the close of a splendid day, relax in a bedside chair with that book you've been waiting to read.
The remaining bedrooms have their own walk-in closets and are each arranged a little differently. A pair of single beds, in the east room, provides individual sleeping accommodations. After a restful sleep enjoy the morning sun delightfully streaming into your room.
The other is presented as a sitting room with a welcoming daybed for casually lounging in solitude. The daybed is combined with a hide away trundle, which can be made up as separate beds or pushed together as a cozy sleeper for two. The North facing window provides a view of the pasture where our longhorn “Junior” resides.
The main bathroom is located near to the extra bedrooms just off the great room. The full bath has a generous shower, toilet and vanity, complemented by a tile floor.
We are a little off the beaten path but we are right on track for those who don't follow the crowd. We have a doghouse with run for ”Fido” and a corral or pasture for your horses. Enjoy exploring, with the kids and critters, the bucolic setting that surrounds you. There is a rails to trails access close by or, you can explore the back roads on horseback, bicycle or afoot. Scout the sulfur river bed for fossils or hunt for antiques and other treasures from here to Canton.
The great outdoors is big as life, to hunt, fish or photograph. Mother Natures’ best is as near as the backdoor. We are a dragonfly and butterfly mecca with several varieties frequenting this area. We are on the path for migrating birds including hummingbirds, geese and the occasional duck flock that come to feed and rest in our pond near the cottage.
The nearby city of Commerce includes a small FBO airport and Texas A&M university. The campus has a theater, planetarium and fitness center to be enjoyed by all. Basic shopping needs can be met, at the several stores and shops, around the town.
The DFW metro area is little more than an hour away for those who can't stay away from the city life. Bring your laptop and make use of our WiFi for work or play. Most cell phone systems work in our area so bring it along.
