We rented this home as a central gathering place for our out-of-town family. It worked well for us and had lots of room for gathering as a large group and also little living areas for smaller groups to hang out together. There were plenty of beds and futons. Nataliya was a great hostess and actually left some marshmallows and chocolate for us to roast smore's at the fire pit by the pond. I was thankful for the cleanliness of the entire place and also the thoughtful little touches of care like the mints and wonderfully smelling soaps, etc. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
We came in at night and it was so dark but the house looked so welcoming when we came up over the hill. Lights were on and Nataliya had the furnace going for us. The house is large and looked just like the pictures on the site. It was wonderful for our family to be together for a few days for our son's wedding and there was plenty of room. There is only one bedroom with a door. The other bedroom is large and the bed sits way back from the doorway so there is still plenty of privacy. Lots of couches and futons and a bed in the studio apt. for people to sleep. If people have serious privacy issues, this may not be the place but it was fine for us. Would love to have had time to explore the property more. The pond had a canoe and dock for fishing and it looked like there were some trails to explore. Watched the sunrise in the morning from our bed upstairs in the studio and saw the stars at night. Gorgeous place and Nataliya was a delight to work with.
We booked the property to get the family together for Christmas. It was everything it was described as being online. Clean, spacious, wonderful setting. Owners were extremely nice and communicated throughout the trip. Would definitely stay here again!
The place was a wonderful meeting places for our familes to get together to celebrate xmas, bdays & visit the Polar Express
With all the rooms, beds, outdoor activites..for a large family spread out its perfect for us... we loved it.
We brought up our ATVs hit a few spots that had down trees blocking the trails, I texted Nataliya with in 20 mins her husband and son were there clearing everything. Great service! The house was cleaned and decorated when we arrived ..
Beds were very comfy. The house stayed warm enough when the weather turned COLD... It was cool enough when it was warm when we arrived.
The guys tried some hunting but didnt see much. It is a little late in the season for it I think with out having a lot of feeders out. Never got to the fishing but did get to sit around the fire pit for some SMORES...
We made some great memories.
Thanks for sharing your home!
We had 16 people stay here over the Thanksgiving weekend. The place was perfect for our needs, and we really enjoyed the secluded area. We did hunt while there, however no luck getting a deer or pig. We brought an ATV, and had fun riding it around the property. The pond was fun for the kids to ride a canoe around. Thank you very much for your hospitality!
We are from East Texas so we enjoyed having this opportunity to vacation close to our alma mater. The property and amenities were mostly accurate in the description. We had a few slip-ups thought, like the water quit working, because of wasps apparently, but the owners were quick to come out and get it back running. Many of the areas are cooled by window units - not sure if this is were more wasps were getting in, but we had a few try to crash our party! The units worked pretty well, but we were there in late September. It was still pretty hot, and the areas stayed cool enough, but I don't know what July would be like. The dishwasher wasn't working either, we had already called the owners a few times so we didn't want to bother them about it too, but they figured out the problem after we left - a bread tie or something was causing it not to drain - NOT OURS! :) There was satellite TV available, but not ESPN which was disappointing to the men of the group since we were there on college Sat and football Sun. :)
However, the beds were SO comfortable! The wood panels throughout are gorgeous and well-maintained, everything was very neat and tidy. The property is grandiose. It was too hot to explore much of it, but some of us did use the dirt bike we brought to ride around. What really kept everyone's attention was the nice little pond. All our children enjoyed sitting on the dock or pulling up a chair to fish. They caught some pretty good ones too. They also enjoyed playing badminton and volleyball. The net and supplies are provided as well. There were a lot of us, so we also brought some extra birdies, rackets, and a soft volleyball.
I will say the kitchen is small for trying to feed 16 people. The stove and the pots and pans provided weren't adequate for us to make dinner and breakfast in an efficient manner. There were two refrigerators to hold all of our stuff, but one was upstairs and one down in the kitchen. We also couldn't all sit around a singular table, but there really isn't room for a larger one unless they took out all of the futon couches. The TV room is large and includes a ping pong table with supplies that was also entertaining. We sat around the dining table in the kitchen area and played games at night.
We had a wonderful time. You are out in the middle of no where, but still only 20 minutes from Wal-Mart.
The lodge is located 15 minutes from lake Jacksonville and Palestine, 40 miles from Tyler, 120 miles from Dallas.There is also a famous Neches river, where locals love to fish, just a few minutes away! Jacksonville has a big lake, and everyone's favorite mud run! Palestine has a famous Texas State Railroad with numerous rides throughout all year, including a Polar Express Ride at Christmas!! Tyler is another great spot for shopping, movies, restaurants, Caldwell Zoo and Oil Palace!
