Ranch Owner Linda is a wonderful woman with a large family, who just wants her guests to be comfortable and have a great time! Brother, Robert Conn is Linda's manager of the The Anderson Ranch from taking care of the horses to welding corrals and fences. He can also let you in on best places to fish and the best bait to use. They occupy the Main White Rock house on the property. Linda also has Ranch dogs Rocky and Butch, that roam the property and they are friendly, but please don't let them in the house!
Why Owner chose Smith County
Best for lady's retreat or families. Just 20 minutes from Canton featuring The Canton Trade days every first weekend of the month. Wild animals are often seen at Star Lake Retreat/. We host wildlife such as our wild hog, white tailed deer, foxes, rabbit, raccoons, beaver, badgers and lots of turtles! You may even spot the Bald Eagle that lives at the Ranch, certain times of the year. We also have many different species of duck and Canadian geese ALL seasons.
What makes this House unique
Fishing is restricted to catch and release on Bass over 15 inches, but Crappie and Catfish no bag limit. Bass under 15 inches have no bag limit. Fish cleaning table on dock with electric and running water. I have personally caught 6 fish over 10lbs in this lake and have released them all. Lighted pier for night fishing. 30 lb Blue cat is very common here! We have a boat ramp and you may bring a small boat if desired.

Perfect spot to relax
Loved the place from the house to the grounds and especially the lake. We were in town for horse trials and this was perfect for our group. We enjoyed the back patio and the watching everyone fish and paddle boat around the lake, we will be back. The owners were very friendly and accommodating.
Great place and Robert and Lori are great
Everything was great. Played golf 3 days and the near by courses were in great shape for May.
Could use an upgrade on the Wifi system.
Perfect place to get away and they have everything you will need.
Secluded but still easy to get to. Clean with plenty of room. Floor to ceiling windows in the living room looking onto the water. Peaceful and relaxing.
The whole family wants to go back!
We had the BEST time at Anderson Ranch. Ten of us went to spend the weekend fishing and relaxing. We caught plenty of fish and really enjoyed spending time together on the patio, in the hot tub, by the fire pit and on the pier. It's a beautiful property and the house has all the amenities you need, including comfortable beds, a huge kitchen and plenty of seating. Everything was clean and well taken care of. The children loved the playground, the cows and especially fishing for Crappie. The 6-year-old caught 15! We made lots of great memories and plan to go back! Thank you for the Texas hospitality!
Home and property pretty and we'll maintained. Weather was cold and wet and really enjoyed fireplac
Would stay there again
House was all that was promised and the land was beautiful
Just returned from a long weekend girl's trip to Canton Trade Days. I could not write enough good things about this house and the amazing property. The minute you walk in it feels like home. It was plenty big enough for a group of 7 girls with room to spare. My very favorite part was the large back porch, hot tub and the view of the lake...Great for late night laughs and early morning coffee. The owners were very accomodating and we will be returning! So much fun!
