About Jerri Berry
Larry and I have lived in this community since 2009. He grew up here and graduated from Rusk High School in 1985 and then moved to Austin where we met. When Larry’s mother passed away, we decided to give up our professional jobs and move back to the farm. In 2014, we moved my mother and step-father here and this is the house that they lived in. Mom absolutely loved this house. It is full of antiques and other items that she collected over her lifetime. She is now living in Tyler but loves the idea that other people from around the world are now enjoying her lovely home.
Jerri Berry purchased this House in 2014
Why Jerri Berry chose Rusk
This is a beautiful piece of land up on a tall hill with a nice view on both the East and the West sides. As mom used to say, “I can see the sun coming up on the front porch and see the sun set on the back porch.” The wildlife and the solitude make it a very relaxing place to enjoy nature and unplug from the busy pace of modern life.
What makes this House unique
The house is located in a rural area where it is literally “away from it all”. We ourselves have benefited mentally and physically from moving away from the constant stress of city life (even though we love going back to Austin regularly!) and we love offering this place to those who want to experience a few days operating at a slower pace.

BEST STAY EVER
Hi, This is Rebecca Mariani
Just wanted to say that my sister in law an I had a wonderful stay recently in this lovely home hosted by Jerri Berry. We always have a great time and this BEAUTIFUL home is so close to our loved ones in Rusk. The Berry's have this place well stocked and so clean. We just love to come and stay in this peaceful setting. The sunsets are gorgeous. We never want to leave. We made a memory celebrating mom's 83rd birthday. A great time was had by all. Thank you, sincerely Rebecca Mariani
Thank you, Rebecca! We love hosting you and your family.
Clean, roomy, peaceful, better than any hotel.
Was very clean,rooms were big and open. Very relaxing and comfortable inside and out. Will definitely stay again. Truly a home away from home with privacy and scenery. Much better than staying in a hotel.
BEST STAY EVER
Hi, I'm Rebecca Mariani an I recently stayed in this BEAUTIFUL, LOVELY HOME that was hosted by Jerri and Larry Berry. It was a perfect time with our family and friends in Rusk, Texas. You could not ask for better HOSTS. The Berry's provide everything for comfort. Very clean and this is the perfect place to bring your furry companions along. I have a five hour drive to come up to Rusk. Coming to one of the Berry's lovely homes is worth the long drive. It is very relaxing. The hosts here go above and beyond to make your stay a home away from home. I can't wait to come back. 5 STARS to this awesome stay recently. You will NOT be disappointed.
Rebecca, you are so very sweet! We welcome you and your family back any time.
Rest, Peace and Renewal!
My husband and I had had a busy week and really needed some time to kick back. The Berry's property in Rusk was just the ticket! From the moment you come up the drive you feel that you are being welcomed to a place of rest and quiet. The house is well appointed with comfortable furniture, spacious, clean and bright with lovely hardwood floors. You'll find all you'll need in the spotless kitchen to help with your meals. Rest indoors on the great sofa with a book or tv, out on the front porch in the swing listening to the birds or on the back patio watching the birds at the bird feeder, the squirrels running about and horses grazing in the back pasture. We also saw deer in the pasture and a fox trotting through the back yard one morning. It was great to meet Jerri and learn a bit more about the house (her mother's) and their family. Though tempting to just stay in, we did get out to eat in Rusk and Jacksonville. However, we could have stayed at the house the whole weekend and been just fine. If you're wanting to get away, this is the place! It would be great to return.
Tammy, that was a lovely review. Thank you!
Awesome peaceful place to stay
A really clean and comfortable home. My 5 sisters and I take a week vacation every year and have done so for 20 years. This was voted as our favorite house. We are in our 70's and this place was so perfect for us. Jeri is a terrific host and very welcoming.
Thank you Winnie! You all were such lovely guests. Take care.
