Great place! Only two hours out of the metroplex - easy for our
Left on 04/19/2014 for a stay in April 2014 | TZB
This may be the best vacation house we have ever stayed in. It was immaculately clean. It was secluded on 12 acres, but easy to find - with the directions provided in the wonderful Guide that Nelson and CJ sent to us.
Just down the road from the Fossil Rim Wildlife Preserve...which we enjoyed fully with our kids and grandbabies!
This home is sooo relaxing...we have stayed in very few "better than my home" rentals or hotels these last few years...but this one...was just that -we just wished we could just stay on & on!
Loved the obvious care and love that Nelson and CJ take to make you feel welcome. The pantry had coffee, snacks, and everything you need for everyday life - a comfortable one at that...plus - good quality linens, plenty of towels, this is a home that will feel like your own home when you walk in - with lovely furnishings and a thoughtful decor. But it is very family friendly and kid-friendly, too.
The kitchen was lovely - with all you would need for a great weekend comfortable, stress-free stay...it invites you to stay in for a lazy breakfast, a leisurely lunch, and relaxing home-style dinner .
The beds were the best we have ever slept on in a vacation rental!
But the best thing of all for me was that wall of windows...we really loved that! Absolutely hypnotic... A perfect, perfect weekend...a good time was had by all of us. We just need to go back...and enjoy more of the local attractions - if we can tear ourselves away from this lovely spot!
