My husband and I rented the ranch house and spent Christmas week there with our 3 children, their spouses and our 9 grandchildren ranging in ages from 4 months to 19 years. It was amazing! We had plenty of room- in fact the house is mores spacious than the photos show and also more beautiful. We enjoyed the large kitchen/dining room area, the play/game room upstairs which provided hours of entertainment for the children, the wonderful outdoor space for barbecuing, hiking, fishing, the fire pit, and just sitting on the porch in those great rocking chairs enjoying the scenery and conversations. Abbey and her family went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and memorable - the Christmas tree was appreciated by all, especially the little ones. Thanks again for a lovely holiday - we really hope to do this again in a few years!

We had such a wonderful trip! This home is a little oasis just an hour from Houston. We had 6 adults and 5 kids in our group. The home had everything we could ask for and there was plenty of room for the group to spread out. We spent our time visiting local towns, playing on the lake and smoking brisket together. Abbey was very available before the trip to help us with any planning/questions and we would love to come back in the future.

Our family group of 13 people, including 5 small children spent a wonderful week in this fabulous home. The children loved the boat on the lake and we all spent many evenings around the fantastic fire-pit. The house is superbly fitted and so spacious . We all enjoyed the hiking trails and the view of the sunsets over the lake from the porch.

Sitting on the dock, watching the sun set, feels like a slice of heaven. What a perfect place for friends and family to gather! Hosts were kind and helpful.

We found the ranch to be a warm inviting place that we could call home for the week. It's very spacious, and beautifully decorated. The surroundings are picturesque. It made us want to buy property in Texas! Absolutely loved it, would highly recommend it.
