Great quiet getaway

Great place, quiet, lots of room for the whole family. I wish we would have taken the Ranger to really explore the whole place. Canoe was fun for the teenagers!

Family Fun

We stayed here for 2 days and wished we could have booked for more days there. When we went in there was a dish of chocolate candies for us to enjoy.We had a small group of 14 and sleeping arrangements was more then plenty. Beds are super comfty. Everyone loved the peacefulness of the place and overall setting. Had one of our kids not wanting to leave. I already miss this place. We'll definitely be coming back. This is now a family favorite. Thank you Nataliya.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect getaway if you want to enjoy the quiet of the country! Beautiful surroundings.

Our family of 12 love the outdoors so this location was perfect! The house was clean and plenty of space to spread our bunch out. We loved walking the trails into the wooded area and even saw deer, raccoons and hogs! They have a canoe to use at the tank and a fire pit for the s’mores and warming up. It’s about 20 minutes into Palestine if you want to enjoy a meal out or need the nearest Wal-Mart. Nataliya was very helpful in answering all my questions and making sure we had everything we needed. ❤️

5/5 Excellent

Really spacious place to gather with the people you love

The facility is great for being with family in a beautiful secluded environment. It was easy to find and had good cell service. The owner was gracious with amenities and helpful with every contact

5/5 Excellent

Great Family Rental Property!

Our family of 14 chose to stay at this Neches property to be close to Palestine for the Polar Express train ride on Saturday & not too far from Canton so we could go to First Monday Thrade Days on Sunday. It met our needs completely as it was only 15 minutes to the Texas State Railroad in Palestine & 1 hour from Canton. The property was beautiful! We enjoyed fishing at the pond & my grandson even caught a small bass. The grandchildren loved paddling around the pond in the canoe that was provided. The house was very welcoming and the accomodations were perfect for our family! We hope to return some time when we have more time to enjoy the scenic 113 acres on which this home sits. Booking the house was easy & Nataliya was quick to respond to all of my questions. We would highly recommend this property!
