Here is what the owners have to say to their guests:
The Parker family welcomes you to “Lonesome Dove”, our little piece of heaven in the Blue Ridge mountains. The Larry McMurtry novel and TV miniseries depicted an unforgettable friendship between Woodrow E. Call and Augustus McCrae, portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall, respectively. The two retired Texas Rangers left behind the simple and unsophisticated town of Lonesome Dove to pursue one final adventure, a seemingly endless 3,000 mile cattle drive from the Mexican border of Texas to the grassy acres of Montana. Their conversations, both long and short, comical and philosophical, consist mostly of Call trying to get Gus to work harder, and Gus trying to get Call to lighten up and enjoy life. Their friendship withstood and survived Indian attacks, countless hardships, and human tragedy along the way. However, throughout the book and movie, the town of Lonesome Dove always represented a retreat and safe haven…a place where time stood still and life was simpler and less complicated. From the Dry Bean Saloon to the Hat Creek Cattle Company and Livery Emporium, the town always offered a quiet reprieve from life’s daily pressures and responsibilities.
Beginning in October 2010, we will begin sharing our cabin (Lonesome Dove) with wandering cowpokes and ranch hands in need of an escape from either stampeding cattle or fast-paced city life. We pray and trust that you (and your friends/family) will find Lonesome Dove to be a relaxing escape from your daily routines and the complications of life. It is our desire that you leave our home and town feeling rejuvenated and refreshed by the internal healing powers of God’s wonderful creations…the mountains, trees, and fresh air can all be intoxicating if you take the time to recognize their beauty and redeeming qualities. We know you will help us protect and preserve our “escape” by treating it like your own. Please leave comments, share your experience with others, and come back whenever the herd or urge leads you – thank you for being our guests…Michael & Tonya Parker (Montgomery, TX)
“Well, I'm glad I ain't scared to be lazy”…..Augustus McCrae (Lonesome Dove)
