About Allen Mederos

We came across this special property and just knew others would find it as beautiful and interesting as we did.

We have several other smaller rental properties but this is by far our biggest and most ambitious venture.

We enjoy meeting other people from all over the world and sharing stories.

Allen Mederos purchased this chateau / country house in 2015

Why Allen Mederos chose Prairies & Lakes

This property is like no other in the Fort Worth area. Having been a former tree farm, there are beautiful trees of all varieties around the property. What makes this property so unique is the proximity to the city and Fort Worth attractions, yet the ability to escape by being on 117 acres of farmland.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Beautiful creeks, large 4 acre pond for fishing, huge outdoor pool and outdoor kitchen area, soccer field, pool table, ping pong tables, basketball goal, lots of outdoor areas to explore, etc, etc.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We had our baseball team stay and the kids loved it. Plenty of room for everyone.

Kids loved the pool, ping pong table, pool table and fishing.

Both the house and pool house had plenty of space for everyone.

We even brought our own golf cart to ride around the property.

Thanks again Allen and Stephanie for letting us stay.

Geauxtime Wedding

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we saw the property, we knew we had found our wedding venue. Our families were flying in from across the country and we wanted a place where we could all stay, hang out, hold the rehearsal dinner as well as the wedding. The sprawling acres of grass, with the longhorns in the distance, the pool and the incredible bar made every moment magical. A special shout out to Stephanne, the coordinator of the property, who was with me every step of the way. For an entire year, she communicated with us, walked us through details we needed, helped us coordinate repeated viewings of the property when needed, and responded to every questions and request. She was just incredible! I think our guests summed it up when they kept asking us, "How did you every find this beautiful property!?" and we just smiled and said, "it was meant to be."

Spectacular location for event!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved getting married here, and the house was perfect for allowing our families to stay with us for the weekend. There were plenty of activities for kids, plus tons of options for everyone to have their own space without being too cramped. The property is gorgeous and we were able to visit the place several times before our scheduled weekend in order to have a better idea of lighting, decor, spacing, parking, logistics, etc. Stephanne was spectacular at communication and everything went wonderfully!

Absolutely Amazing! The best experience Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This property was by far the best home/retreat/vacation getaway that I and my attendees have ever experienced! It was like an all-inclusive resort, hosting and sleeping all 20 guests comfortably between the two house, and middle house (I guess you call it) and the pool and hot tub. From the stocked pantry and shampoo supplies to the farm fresh eggs, it was an awesome place to be. Many of the guests, here for a business meeting at the Ft. Worth Convention Center only 20 minutes away, raved over the pool table, ping-pong table and open room that can convert to Poker tables! The land and water all around made it an enjoyable place to spread out and know that you weren't disturbing the neighbors. Some guests even went fishing! And the host was available at a moments notice, always on hand, accommodating for us whenever we needed. So many more things I could say about this property but, in a nutshell, this property is awesome and I highly suggest everyone visit for your gatherings.

Amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 19 (12 adults, 7 kids) stayed at Sanders Hitch in December 2016 for 5 nights. We had an amazing and unforgettable time! The space is fantastic, it is an oasis of solitude but not far at all from civilization and convenience. The property manager is incredible: responsive, thoughtful, and very helpful.

Between the bunk room, the pool house, the swimming pool and hot tub, the playground equipment, the outdoor entertainment system with a fireplace and outdoor kitchen, the massive game room - I don't know if we'll ever find a better location for a family trip! Hope to come back again soon. I couldn't recommend staying here more highly.
