About Mike & Sharon Drew

We are both retirees from the corporate world and have lived at the “farm” for 4 years. We have owned the property for about 17 years and used it primarily for weekend recreation when we lived in the D/FW Metroplex. We call our place the “Creek Bend Farm” because a bend of Lake Fork Creek crosses the back of the property. We constructed the cabin to live in while our retirement home was being built.

We understand the importance of having a place to go to for “down time away from it all”. Our mission is to provide our guests with privacy and time to enjoy the natural setting of the 50 wooded acres where the cabin is situated.

The property is well managed considering the vast topagraphy.

  • 5 of 5

I had my young Son, and his small family from Phoenix ,in for the Christmas holidays . I really wanted them to be comfortable in their surroundings. The accommodations, exceeded my expectations, even though I had visited beforehand. I have never seen such attention to every aspect of "affordable ",vacation lodging.

Thank you kindly, Mike and Sharon! I live in East Texas myself. I'm already planning my own cebatical in the near future!

Amazing! If you love Nature? STOP! This is the 1!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here 11/19/17 to 11/22/17 what an amazing, quiet, & very clean home they have here! All you will hear here, is the wind blowing through the trees & birds chirping! They have all the amenities you need here from fire wood to charcoal, liter fluid and much more. I had so much fun fishing & walking the many trails they have here. Walmart is only 5 miles away! I will definitely be back! Thank you so much Mike & Sharon!
