About Heather Reams

Howdy I'm Heather my husband and I are in the western entertainment business. I'm from Hollywood ,California. I moved here in 1989 and love it. My husband was born and raised here in Fort Worth. We have four kids and only one is still here our son. We love to travel to warm places. We went to Costa Rica last November and loved it. We love the outdoors and I think my outdoors looks better than my indoors. I go crazy in the winter if I can't be outside. My husband is the cook around here and I do the outside work. When my husband is out of town we are all on a diet...

Heather Reams purchased this house in 1998

Why Heather Reams chose Burleson

This is our oasis we have everything here we enjoy. Our houses sit on a hill, with a breeze in the summer time keeps it 10 degrees cooler. We have the most beautiful sunsets, and sun rises. Our property is mostly at the front of the house, and we have a 1 acre pond full of fish. It's very peaceful and relaxing here. My father built this house for a prep kitchen and a bunkhouse, but it has been changed 3 times since 2005. It's a pier and beam house with a metal roof with 3 French doors and 1 regular doors.

What makes this house unique

Private if you want privacy. Our ranch has a automatic gate at the entrance and the house has it's own driveway right to the house. a two car carport and two entrances on the south side. Sitting areas are all around the ranch. We enjoy sitting outside at the end of the day. The pool is a shared pool, but if we have guest we do not use the pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came in from Georgia to visit our son and his family for christmas. the house was prefect lots of room to gather and plenty of sitting areas. The kitchen is huge, with everything you would need to cook for an army. Heather was great and on top of everything. I was so excited to cook on the gas stove top for our christmas meal. Christmas eve morning we ran out of propane. I knew there would be no cooking for me on the stove, I told Heather about it and within a couple of hours the propane man shows up fills the tank and comes inside to light the pilot lights. It was Christmas eve and a Sunday. I don't know how she got that done but she did. We Had a great family time and the grandkids had plenty of room for their selfs to play. We also brought our dog with us, and they have a fenced in yard for guest dogs. I would highly recommend this house if you want a relaxing stay away from the city and noise. It's close to all the store and shopping too.

In the other direction there is Glen Rose. My favorite place to visit there is Fossil Rim Wild Life Park. Drive your car through exotic animals, after that visit Dinosaur World for hiking, picnic, or a fossil dig. In the town of Burleson there is Lost Oak Winery that holds events, music, and of course wine tasting. There are lots of restaurants in the area, water parks, lakes, horseback riding at Benbrook lake.

So glad we found this!

  • 5 of 5

This worked out perfectly for us on this trip. I am so glad that I found it! We used it as our base for our trip to the Cotton Bowl. We were able to take our small dog and leave him at the house in his kennel when we went into town and it was close enough that we could head back to the house to relax a little in the afternoon before we went out for the evening. Super comfortable and plenty of room. Our family had lots of room to spread out and relax. Heather has thought of everything to make the stay simple and hassle-free. We would definitely go back if we're in the area again. Really convenient to Fort Worth and Arlington where we spent most of our time when not at the house. Too bad it was too cold to use the hot tub and pool!

Home on the Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on the ranch was so much more than we expected. Heather and Buck met us on arrival and quickly made us feel right at home giving us a tour of the property. The kitchen area is very spacious and great for a family gathering. We ate breakfast each morning on the front porch enjoying the view. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of closet space in the bedrooms. We especially liked the covered area near the beautiful pool which has comfortable seating and a big grill for outdoor entertaining. Getting to see the longhorns and horses really added to our visit. Finally watching the sunsets and gazing at the stars in the Texas sky made our stay a perfect experience on the Buckhorn Ranch. Thank you Heather and Buck for your hospitality. We look forward to coming back soon!!

Perfect Location in a Relaxing Setting

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about our stay in the guest house. The location of the house allowed us to conveniently explore from Dallas-Fort Worth to Waco, to Glen Rose from a great centralized location. After long days out and about, we were able to relax in the pool and cool off in preparation for our adventures the next day. The house worked great for our family (husband, wife, two kids between 5 and 10), but would work great for almost any family or group. Whole-heartedly recommend the ranch for anyone looking to explore North-East Texas.

Beautiful ranch and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Heather was a great host and gave us a wonderful tour of the property!

Great memories have been made here by my family who all loved the serenity of the ranch.

We hope to be back during warmer weather, so we can get to enjoy the pool more.

Thank you!
