About Cathy Krafve
My nick name is "super gram" to a new generation of our family. Super-multitasker and queen of hospitality might also work. Our family's mission is to create a safe and welcoming environment for all those God brings across our path. And we LOVE our Texas heritage! We like to say truth and twang meet at our house!
Cathy Krafve purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Cathy Krafve chose Flint
We bought the Sunflower Cabin as a retreat for our family and friends. We even lived in it one summer as we renovated our home. East Texas is home to four generations of our family and we like to welcome siblings and cousins to get away from the big city and return to their roots. One international artist has even used it as a studio and retreat for a special series of projects. New Pine Cove leaders have nested here as they settled into new responsibilities. Each family that visits brings happy memories and we feel blessed to share it and witness what God will do.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Sunflower is the ideal retreat for anyone looking to spend quality time with family unplugged. Or, for those seeking a creative retreat or a thoughtful sabbatical. We are definitely off the beaten path in a quiet neighborhood where deer, raccoons, and foxes saunter by with their offspring on a regular basis. Bird watching is another favorite activity with woodpeckers, blue birds, egrets, pelicans, and cardinals sighted regularly.

Where the deer play....
There were 10-12 deer that occupied the area. Very much enjoyed the wild life, location, the privacy, and the accommodations. The host could not have been more cordial and helpful.
Cathy is the best
We came into town for a family wedding and rented the cabin for a 4 day weekend. On day one the air conditioner was leaking and Cathy immediately called someone to come take care of it. She was really worried that we might get hot. Over all best stay ever. Thanks again Cathy
The owner's where nice people and very friendly . The only problem that I had was getting up the stair's ( I'm a disabled vet ) . All in all I had a very good time . I enjoyed the peace and quite .
Fantastic Place to Stay
This was one of our best experiences staying at a house vs hotel rooms! Cathy was a superb host, she can’t do enough for you! She has been blessed with gift of hospitality from the Lord! The house was wonderful, quiet and serene and just a stone’s throw from the lake. Beautiful surroundings, and the house was clean and comfortable! We can’t wait to go back!
We were so blessed by your visit and your dear family, Karen! Thank you sharing in the natural wonder and joy of our family retreat! We felt honored to have you stay. We can't wait for your return!

The Sunflower Cabin IS phenomenal 🌻�!!
We stayed 69 days and enjoyed every minute of our relaxing vacation!! We were welcomed by a clean and bright environment in a big kitchen, open sunroom, clean bathrooms, and a huge bedroom and loft!!
The owners Cathy and Dave were so helpful, kind, and fun people!! And now they are our friends!!
We woke up to seeing deer in the backyard, making bonfires, and relaxing! We look forward to staying at The Sunflower again!! 🌻�
Friends like you are our reason for sharing our family’s favorite “treehouse!” We love you guys and can’t wait for your next visit!
Quiet peaceful neighborhood, beautiful landscape & close to Tyler!
Loved the unique architecture of the cabin & the”treehouse” feel. Enjoyed watching the deer come through the yard & neighborhood. The fire pit & wood out back was a nice treat. Cabin was equipped with everything we needed; & quite comfortably furnished. Cathy & Dave Krafve are great & friendly hosts, very accommodating to their guests. Our week in the Sunflower Cabin was just the respite we needed!
We loved having you guys here, Pam and Jeff! What an inspiration you are. I hope we will see you again soon!
Between Tyler's world-class Caldwell Zoo and the Bullard's Freedom Museum there are no end of attractions in this region. Flint is strategically located for water sports, shooting sports, and golf. We also have the New York Zip Line nearby and we are a short drive to Canton's First Monday Trades Day, which is acres of booths from antique furniture to hand-crafted clothes to home and hunting accessories.
