About Susan and/or Tim Smith

Tim and I bought this property in September of 2011 and after we retired in April 2012 we moved here to our wonderful new (to us) home. We love the country and this was a great place to us. 71 acres with 2 homes, (we live in the first house) not to large but a good piece to raise cows have our horses, dogs, cats and chickens as well as a garden.

Susan and/or Tim Smith purchased this farmhouse in 2012

Why Susan and/or Tim Smith chose Tyler

We came to Tyler, TX as a friend of my husbands moved here 24 years ago and said we should come visit. We did, and loved the area and found this wonderful property. We live in the 1st house and after trying to find places for us to stay and our animals on the way here (we moved from 2300 miles away), we decided that it would be a great place to rent for folks that are traveling with animals or that want to vacation in a quiet beautiful country setting. We are not far from Tyler (7mi.) or Lindale (9 mi).

What makes this farmhouse unique

We love that the homes sit back off the road. The porches on both homes are fantastic to sit on and enjoy the beauty of the trees and pastures with 3 spring fed ponds, watching the different birds and wildlife come through is so refreshing. Both homes are older and we just feel at home and hope ya'll will too.

Nice little getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 kids visited for 2 nights and had a great time! The house is set behind the main house on the property but still feels private. The owners are very friendly but you certainly don't feel bothered by the fact that they are nearby. My girls loved the friendly horses and dogs on the property and Susan was more than willing to let them watch as she cared for the horses. The house was very comfortable. The two bedrooms are connected (you have to walk through one to get to the other) but it worked just fine for us. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. And the fire pit was great for roasting marshmallows! Overall, this was a peaceful and restful place to stay! Thanks!

We were in town for a horse show at Texas Rose. Though we didn't get to spend as much time as we would like at the house because of the show, it was exactly what we needed!
