About Sam Coughenour

I bought several pieces of acreage around the lake over many years to piece together this lakeside ranch. It was an overgrown sweet potato farm, with no utilities, roads, water etc. It was quite a chore over many years and I still continue to add to the property. It is a place me and my family go to slow down , escape the fast paced city and breath fresh country air and see the many stars that dance over the lake at night. Recently I retired from the insurance business in Plano TX after 30 years. I have started many small companies over the years in Texas and own some of the downtown ALBA area and own the Covered Wagon Trading Post, Crawdaddy's, Lake Fork Boat Rentals and some other commercial ventures. For fun we raise Paint horses and even have a few race horses that race in the Southwest. My son will soon be off to college so I will retire to the Ranch. Hope to meet you and your family one day here at the Ranch.

Sam Coughenour purchased this farmhouse in 1999

Why Sam Coughenour chose Lake Fork

There is no other lake front property with so much to do. And that can sleep up to 50 people. Most guests love our decor that is western with re-purposed barn tin, barn wood, with antiques all around the property from all across the Southwest combined with all modern appliances, city water, utilities etc. You feel like your far away from the big city but DFW is only 65 miles EAST of us. We are West of Canton TX so we are perfectly located for an easy drive. We host guests from all across the U.S. and 50% are from out of State. We sit on a honey hole with large Bass and great fishing. Lake Fork is famous for its fishing with numerous million dollar tournaments on our little lake town. If you want a private place to rent, close to home, easy access and lots to do for every age group then come see us. Please book in advance as we book out 6-9 months in advance on average.

What makes this farmhouse unique

This is a Private ranch on private cove on Lake Fork with no close neighbors. And much to do on property including use of free paddle boat, Horseshoes, basketball, foosball, pool table, darts, ping pong, teather ball, volleyball, archery, washers and a tree house with slide and faux rock wall for the little ones. We also rent Kayaks, Pontoon Boats, Paddle Boards, Jet Skis, Canoes, Bounce Houses and more here at the ranch. Included is our lighted boat dock with a year around fish feeder. Includes free use of boat ramp on property.

Good Times

  • 5 of 5

My family has been to Mustang Ranch on multiple occasions. We love fishing, swimming, playing ping pong and shooting pool. When it is not to hot out we build a fire in the the pit and chat under the stars. Wake up early and take the kayak out on the lake. Rustic and comfortable.

Owner's Response: Greg, thank you for your post. You left the place in great shape. Furthermore, you always made sure your group was paying for the services we offer unlike some and leave us with large bills. It has been a pleasure to have you. VRBO will start ranking guests in 2017 so us owners can decide if we want to take the risk. Your family was a 5 star. And we will note that in the near future. Thank you and your family for taking care of my place. You will always be welcomed back here. Sam C.

Big fun here

  • 5 of 5

My family had a reunion and we all drove from the southwest to meet at Mustang Ranch. It was amazing for all of us. We had babies, tweens and college kids. They all had fun. We rented the jet skis, the pontoon and the bounce house for the kids. We had about 42 and our average cost was $50.00 per night and we had the place all to ourselves. Everything was ready, ACs on, beds made and even watermellons in the ref. for us. Most of us caught huge fish. We played teatherball, horseshoes, washers, pool, foosball for 3 days straight. The kids wore us out. It was great to get the kids off their electronic devices. We did not opt for the wifi and loved every minute of our stay here. Hope to come back next year. Thanks for the hospitality and for sharing your ranch with us.

Property needs much work.

  • 1 of 5

My family has been getting together for about 15 years now and have stayed at several places that needed work, but what was listed as amenities were there. There is no hot tub. In the big barn, the A\C units exhaust into the main area so it stays hot. The back board for the basketball goal is broken, horseshoe pit was unusable due to the trees not being trimmed, pool table needs to have the rotten pockets replaced and the ping pong table justs sits on top of the pool table. The rules state to throw your food scraps into the woods. Throwing your food scraps into the woods is unsanitary and attracts wildlife. The dishes in the kitchen of the barn were covered in dust. We had to kill several wasp nests that should not have been allowed to build.

In the main barn, all of the televisions were hooked up to one receiver so you could only watch one tv show. The owner would not provide us with the password for the internet.

There are not enough bathrooms for the amount of sleeping areas. One cabin didn't even have a bathroom.
