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!
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.
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.
Would stay there again
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!
7 girlfriends escaped to Star Lake Retreat for a weekend and had a blast! The owners were fabulous and friendly. We enjoyed the lake and the serenity that the place had to offer. It's nothing fancy...but it was perfect for what we wanted...as weekend away from the chaos, city, jobs, kids, etc. It was a great place to unwind after a full day of shopping in Canton! I would definitely recommend this place for a getaway...and it's perfect for Canton weekend!
We had a three generational reunion at this lovely lake house. It accommodated the six of us just fine, with the older ones downstairs, and younger ones in the bedrooms upstairs (quite steep stairs). We had complete privacy in the two bedrooms upstairs, despite the loft style layout. The owner was extremely accommodating with my pre arrival request. We caught lots of fish, enjoyed the beautiful lake view, and although we had (much needed) constant rain, we all had a wonderful time. Only two suggestion: sharp knives or a knife sharpener, and a functioning can opener would be helpful.
The good: super quiet, relaxing, covered patio, hot tub, grill, fire pit, fishing, paddleboat, canoe, volleyball, big TV, comfy couch/beds, big kitchen, plenty of seating, less than a mile off the highway, 10min from the grocery store in Van, 20min to berry picking farm, and 90min from Dallas
The not so good: many wasps near fishing dock and children's playground, maid missed cleaning all the dead flies/wasps behind the TV and the hair in the tub/shower drains, check pots/pans for cleanliness before using (black specks = 18 eggs ruined, trip to the store, and a very late breakfast), knives could use sharpening, no paring knives (we bought some and left them), no salt/pepper (we bought some and left them), no cold water on far sink in the hall bath, 3rd & 4th bedrooms are loft-style (less privacy) and open to the living area, stairs to 3rd & 4th bedrooms are pretty steep (not for the elderly) and no bathroom upstairs, Keurig listed in appliance section of rental paperwork but there wasn't one, nowhere to hike/walk around the property without feeling like you are intruding on the owners' space, most of the land is cordoned off for horse/cow pastures
Overall, we had a great time and would consider coming back for a weekend again. Thanks, Lori!
Our family of 7 (5 kids) came here for a weekend getaway. Although the weather was a little cold and rainy, we really enjoyed the property. It was very well kept. My kids LOVE to fish, so this place with its own dock and private body of water was ideal. We also loved the hot tub and it felt great in the chilly weather. Thank you, Lori, for sharing your home with us and we hope to be back!
