Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Daphne & Gary Hatcher live right next door to this guest rental cottage and have owned and operated Pine Mills Pottery there since 1979. They create fine handmade pottery for use in the kitchen, on the table and in your home or in professional spaces. Their work has been featured in magazines, books, museums and art centers all over the country. Walk next door and shop in their studio gallery. Daphne has taken the Texas Master Naturalist course and loves all things about Nature. Gary is also a fine musician and plays jazz guitar in his band, 'Purple Velvet Fox', at local wineries and other venues. Between the two of them, they love art, music, nature, books, bicycling, gardening and travel, and often use VRBO to book their own vacation rentals, so have equipped this cottage as they would like, if they were traveling away from home.

Why the Owner Chose Mineola, TX, USA:
We have had the very best neighbors for the past 30 years, who built this cottage themselves with the help of her father, who was a builder by trade. They eventually became elderly and passed on, and we purchased their home and renovated it to contemporary standards. It is a very comfortable and comforting space, to unwind, relax and recharge.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a place to get away from it all. It is peaceful and quiet. There are several nice wineries to visit on the weekends, and the small surrounding towns each have their own charm. Mineola and Winnsboro are both very cute little towns with restaurants and antiques. Tyler is less than an hour away for the Azalea Trail and the Rose Festivals. Quitman is the gateway to Lake Fork and big bass fishing and tournaments. First Monday at Canton is less than an hour away. Bring your bicycles and helmets for great back road cycling. Mainly, though, this is a place to retreat and recenter yourself.
