1-Bedroom Cottage nestled in the Piney Woods
Patti and Leon Gallaway
About Patti and Leon Gallaway
We found this "little piece of heaven" in the Piney Woods in 2016, and immediately named it our "Almost Paradise". We moved the cottage onto our 42-acre property over a year ago. It is our vision to create a quiet space in Nature and to share it with anyone who, like us, wants to experience peace and quiet in the woods. We are constantly evolving our space with more cabins, Tipi Pods, and other adventure-attracting amenities, just enough, but not too much that we lose its beauty and exclusivity. We welcome visitors, families, and groups.
Why Patti and Leon Gallaway chose Frankston
We hail from the Austin area and Dallas/Ft. Worth. When we "refocused" our future, we chose East Texas because we wanted something in Nature, large enough to move around on, yet something we could afford and develop on retirees' income. We are moving slowly but surely toward our goal of creating wonderful possibilities that meet the needs of all who seek the quiet, meditative benefits of Nature - God's Creation.
What makes this Cottage unique
We visited and traversed many properties in the area before we found this piece of property. We chose it because of the tall pine trees and the many hardwoods that inhabit the 42 acres. We did not know but have since been told that we are "out on Sugar Mountain" and we accept that since our acreage has a climb to its "highest peak" where you will find breathtaking views (between the trees) of the surrounding beauty. It's not the Rockies, but it is Texas' answer to "mountain living".

Great Escape for Peace and Quiet!!
My wife and I spent the New Year's holiday here and could not have enjoyed it more!! The cottage was exceptional an very comfortable! The owners thought of everything you could possibly need which was great. We had a great time playing the select of records and music they provided... we may have done a bit of dancing! The cottage was very comfortable and very clean and we got a lot of relaxing and reading done. The setting/ location of this cottage is great. I enjoyed some very peaceful reading time on the back porch. This was a really great way to bring in the New Year! It was a great way to decompress and start things fresh. Leon is very friendly and accommodating. We are looking forward to a future visit.. Thanks for a truly great stay!! Happy New Year!
Thank you, Matthew, for the glowing review. We were hoping the inclement weather did not interfere with your New Year's celebration. We appreciate the excellent communication we had with you and the way you left the cottage clean and orderly. We hope you can come back in the future and "unwind" especially when the weather is more accommodating.

GREAT GET AWAY SPOT
THE CABIN WAS BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED FOR CHRISTMAS, FROM THE WREATH ON THE DOOR TO THE INSIDE, VERY HOMELY. THE INSIDE WALLS OF THE CABIN ARE EXPOSED WOOD, PLENTY WARM. OWNERS BENT OVER BACKWARDS TO MAKE OUR STAY WONDERFUL. BED WAS AWESOME COMFORTABLE, AND I AM NOT A SMALL MAN.
Great East Texas Getaway
Patti and Leon were very accommodating and communicated effectively throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. The cottage had everything we needed, and the loft was much larger than we were expecting. They made sure we had plenty of firewood for the firepit, and the hike and views from the multiple decks were a better than expected. The cottage had all of the amenities we were looking for and then some. 10/10 would recommend to others.
The perfect cozy hideaway!
This cabin was just perfect for our two-person writing retreat. It's adorable, secluded but accessible, and fully stocked with everything we needed--just add food and laptops. We had a great campfire in the fire ring out front, and went on a couple of really enjoyable little hikes. The owners were friendly and left us to our work. We would definitely stay here again!
Quintessential “Cabin in the Woods”
This is the quintessential “cabin in the woods”. Great place to truly get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Patti and Leon accommodated a very late arrival and checked in to make sure everything was good, which it was. The cabin was very clean, and well appointed. We were able to prepare a couple of meals there easily, and everything was as described. Away from it all, but a lot to do all around the area as well. Definitely recommended.
We were happy to host Jesse and company at Paradise Cottage. They left the cottage spotless and in order. We appreciate the consideration shown to the property and welcome Jesse back any time he needs another "get away"!
