About Cindy Inderlied
We moved from the big city of Dallas, and purchased this house unfinished, and my husband and I have been working on it ever since. Our children are grown, and now its time to share our home with others. We have lots of memories in this home, and hope you will make some unforgettable ones as well.
Cindy Inderlied purchased this House in 2005
Why Cindy Inderlied chose Marathon
My brother built this home with his 4 boys in mind. He wanted a home big enough for them to grow up in, but he also wanted his privacy from 4 boys. He built each bedroom with a private bathroom so all the boys could have their own space. He also built a bathroom down stairs, known as a mud bath, so when the boys came in dirty. mom could insist they wash off first. I don't have it decorated like a mud bath. Sorry! It certainly has came in handy several times when my home was filled to maximum capacity with all of our family and friends. Now as for the master bedroom, it is my favorite part of the house. Huge bedroom, and private balcony. Big bathroom with his and her space. He knew how to make his wife happy, and now me! We purchased the home from my brother when he decided his time was finished in Marathon, and off he went with his family to see the world.
What makes this House unique
My husband and I hate to go out of town and sleep on a terrible mattress. When we decided to share our home, we tried to think of all things bad from our travel experiences, and we made sure they were scratched off our list. We hope this is a very restful, peaceful and kick off your shoes type of experience while you are in our home. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to share our home with you..... till next time!

Right across from Big Bend Pizza is a gas station, and inside they have a full lunch menu, and we recommend their hamburger and french fries plate. Yum!
