About Stephanie Zajac

We are empty nesters with time on our hands! We met in Dallas in 1978 at Northway Baptist Church, married in 1981, and have a son in college and a married daughter in Chicago. We have owned our own business in Plano since 1983. Entertaining in our home is one of our favorite things to do!

Stephanie Zajac purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Stephanie Zajac chose Texas

We had been looking for over a year for a weekend place. When we found this house in the fall of 2013 we got so excited! The fact that it is an hour from Dallas was a plus. And it's in beautiful East Texas near wonderful people and shopping.

What makes this cottage unique

8 minutes from First Monday Trade Days

25 minutes from amazing shopping in Mineola

Back porch with views of nothing but trees!

Neighbors have horses that come to the fence many mornings and we hear the cows gossiping on the land behind us.

Perfect Country Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with 5 other ladies at the Canton Cottage for First Monday and it could not have been more perfect. The house was great for a girl's weekend..plenty of room, quaint decor, stocked kitchen, awesome back patio and country surroundings. We had some bad weather and the owner was more than accommodating. It was a great opportunity for some chick flicks in the tv room. The owner was over the top! I highly recommend the Canton Cottage.

We needed a weekend getaway that was close to home.....this place was perfect! The home is cozy and comfy! It is very well furnished with everything you could possibly need. The backyard and deck is over the top great! I travel alot and this did not feel like a rental property.....It felt like my best friend had opened her home to me! We will definitely be back! One of my all time favorites!

Weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the home we love to simply call "The Canton House" as it is the only home we want to stay at when we come to town! We love the added room and larger deck! It is the perfect spot to unwind in the evenings. And the dogs loved our walks around the area. A very quiet peaceful location. The few people we saw out on our walks were very friendly. The home has EVERYTHING you might need to relax and enjoy your time there.
