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 East Texas

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.

Wonderful country get-a-way! Comfortable country!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six wanted to get a way to a relaxing place that would accommodate our family comfortably, as well as offer fishing. This place was perfect! We loved being so close to the animals and the fishing was awesome! Additionally, it slept our seven perfectly (we had a guest join our family). The space was clean and cozy and we absolutely plan to return!! Susan and Tim were so hospitable and kind. They greeted us upon arrival and shared the important "things to know" and we signed our contract. There was fruit, nuts, and a nice bottle of wine waiting. Tim even brought us up some cucumbers freshly picked from their garden and pickles.

The evening of arrival we settled in and grilled and got comfortable. There is a Walmart about 7 miles from the cabin and it was a lovely drive. We were able to stock up on groceries, as well as get additional bait. The following day we fished both in the morning and evening. We caught several fish! In the evening, my husband and I went for an evening stroll to the back pond (which I highly recommend, and plan to fish at when we return). You can easy drive to the back pond and there is a perfect flat dirt space for chairs and even a table. I cannot wait to return, this time for longer than the weekend.

Highlights of our trip were the close proximity to the horses and cows, the fishing, and the opportunity to enjoy country living we soon wish to have of our own.

Thank you, Susan and Tim, for the wonderful stay! We'll see you again something this summer!

God Bless,

The Maoga Family

Lovely accommodations with great atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous time staying at this location. The house was very clean; the hospitality of the owners was over the top. We were in Tyler for a wedding over the weekend and this house was the perfect place for us to relax each night after the wedding preparations & festivities. There were five of us-3 adults and 2 children, and everyone had enough space in the bedrooms to where everyone was comfortable.....plenty of room for luggage and a closet in each room to hang up clothes. The kitchen had plenty of cooking tools to accommodate pretty much any type of meal you wanted to prepare. There were full sets of dishes, but the owners of the property also provided paper plates and such if we needed a quick meal. We didn't bring any livestock or horses with us, but discovered that if we had, the owners have the capability to set up corrals to allow them to be taken out of trailers and such. We were very impressed with the grounds and the versatility of accommodations for guests. We will definately be visiting SOHOE farms again!
