Mark and Lyn have owned and operated the Gulf Breeze Alpaca (and Sheep) Ranch at Lake Corpus Christi near Mathis since 2007. Soon after welcoming her alpacas home, Lyn developed skills in processing their fiber herself, starting with learning how to shear them. After learning how to shear and process her own fiber into batts, roving and yarn, Lyn opened her shop and studio where she teaches spinning, knitting and wet felting & needle felting. She offers hand made and commercially made items and yarn in her shop at the ranch. Mark and Lyn offer tours of the ranch to groups and families throughout the year. This year they have added vacation rentals to the mix.
purchased this cottage in 2000
Why chose Lake City
The Christophs sought a piece of land within a 50 mile radius of their home in Corpus Christi where they could get away on weekends. They found this spot, a five acre tract of unimproved land that was located across the road from Lake Corpus Christi and immediately fell in love with the area. After purchasing the land in 2000, they spent weekends using a travel trailer, later to build a house, where they live now. They purchased additional 10 acres in 2008, and the 15 acres that connected it all together in 2010.
What makes this cottage unique
The property is located within the flight paths of many migrating birds. There are many beautiful birds that live in the area year round. Green Jays, Kiskadees, Mockingbirds, many different finches and water fowl make their home in the area surrounding the lake. Wildlife is abundant, especially since the State Park is located less than 2 miles to the South of the property, there is also a Nature Preserve that runs along the river on both sides of the Wesley Seal Dam. Being within 50 miles of the Gulf Coast, the property enjoys cooling breezes coming from the Gulf waters, a semi-tropical environment. Being also on the edge of the dry line gives the property some semi-arid benefits such as a little dryer days in the summer. No matter what time of year, the benefits of living and working in the country are incalculable.
