About this listing
Come enjoy a peaceful stay at our 2 bedroom, log inspired guest house. Full bed downstairs and queen in loft bedroom. Spend a relaxing evening around the firepit or in the shade in a hammock, listening to nature as it reveals itself.
We built this custom house from timber off our wooded property. The logs you will find inside were hand peeled and milled on site. One bedroom is downstairs the other is a loft bedroom. You can enjoy several big game hunting trophies on display as well.
You will have access to a firepit and seating. A nice double hammock under our pine trees and a delightful screen porch overlooking the fishing pond. There is a quaint little grocery store and deli, as well as a small restaurant 5 minutes away. If you would like to try fishing, we have some basic fishing gear to catch and release bass and perch. Kayaks are available to paddle around. Cedar Grove, which is a nice access to the Current River, is about 15 minutes down the road. If you would like to try floating the river, there are two canoe outfitters within 35 minutes....Jadwin Canoe Rental and Akers Ferry Canoe Rental, they both have websites you can check out and make reservations is you wish. Montauk State Trout Hatchery is available as well, it is about 45 minutes away. If you just want to hang around the cabin we have horseshoes and other outside and indoor games. A Walmart Super Center is in Houston.....10 minutes away for supplies. If you like to BBQ, there is a charcoal grill to use.....just bring some charcoal.

Hi! I am a retired elementary school teacher and literacy coach. I'm passionate about the importance of, and promotion of early literacy. I enjoy reading, gardening, living the country life and spending time with my beautiful grandchildren and their parents. My husband and I travel from time to time, when we can get away from the farm. We enjoyed spending some time in South Africa and Zimbabwe.
As a host I try to be sensitive to what kind of interaction my guests are comfortable with. I'm comfortable with showing you the space and being there for your convenience at your request. However, I'm also just as comfortable sitting around the campfire in the evening, roasting marshmallows and chatting.
