About Julie Vier

The Texas House is one of three guest houses on 12 acres. The land has been in my family for over 68 years. My husband was a pastor and also a teacher and coach in Pottsboro. I retired from being the elementary librarian 10 years ago and now I am the social worker at the Resale Barn which provides rental and utility assistance to people in Grayson County.

Julie Vier purchased this house in 2010

Why Julie Vier chose Lake Texoma

We acquired this property after the passing of my parents and turned it into Pappy's Paradise Bed & Breakfast. My father was called Pappy and always referred to it as 'Pappy's Paradise.' It was named Pappy's Paradise after my father.

What makes this house unique

The Texas House was designed and built by our son. It is unique with its western charm.

Perfect size for our party of seven and 3 kids. Beautiful cabin in the woods with comfort of home.

  • 5 of 5

Great area, fun walking trails, and a pond where the kids could fish. The house was great and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a fire pit where we roasted marshmallows for s'mores!

Clean and comfortable home in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

My 3 son-in-laws and I had a wonderful Striper Fishing weekend on Texoma. This wonderful cabin was 5 minutes from the marina and we had 2 enjoyable nights staying here. The beds were comfortable and den/kitchen area was a great gathering spot. The fire pit area was a late night focal point and much fun was had. I would highly recommend this home for a family get away.

Picturesque and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

6 friends and I stayed at the Texas House in early June 2016. We were pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail the owner has put into this property and we all agreed the pictures didn't do it justice in the least. The home is beautifully decorated, well maintained and was very clean. The owners communication was very prompt and courteous and she was able to provide answers to any questions we had. The home is listed as secluded and that it definitely is, you truly felt as if you had gone far far into the country, yet your only 10-15 min from the nearest grocery store. The home was stocked with multiple cooking supplies, seasonings and plenty to place settings for a large group. Our expectations were definitely exceeded and we would love to stay again!

Unique cabin in a great location. Great for an extended family get together.

  • 4 of 5

Came here over a long weekend with the extended family. Children loved the house and the outdoors. The house is beautiful and can comfortably sleep 8. There is a loft attached to the master bedroom upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs. Each room has a TV and there is also one in the living room so that every age group is catered for. The kitchen is well equipped. The bed in the master bedroom is a little uncomfortable but we made do and eventually moved to the floor. We will come again when the weather turns cooler to experience the cabin in the winter.
