Enjoy your stay in our secluded 640 sq ft one bdr small, private cottage. Equipped with a full kitchen, bath and washer and dryer. Fresh eggs from our chickens are provided for your enjoyment. It is country living with easy access to many places: 10 minutes to Lindale,
5 minutes to Tyler State Park
20 min. to Tyler, 30 min. to Canton Trades Days,
20 Mineola and Gladewater for antique shopping. Unplug and unwind at The Lazy Possum.....because sometimes we all need to play possum!

The space
Our beautiful place is located within a named summit in Texas called Todd Mountain. This enables you to experience fantastic views from atop of our rolling hills. Legend has it that at the top of the summit (not located on our land) there was a cave that Bonnie and Clyde used as a hideout. The cave has since collapsed. This is oral history passed on to me from a 90+ year old woman that used to play in the cave as a little girl.

Where you’ll be

Tyler, Texas, United States

We are located in rural East Texas on 100 acres but we are close to many wonderful places: Tyler State Park (5 miles), Tiger Creek Sanctuary (1 mile), you can actually sit outside and hear the lions roaring from the cottage porches. Lindale, Tx is only 10 minutes away, it is home of country music sensation Miranda Lambert. Visit her store the Pink Pistol and head over to Texas Music City to enjoy live music. Lindale has many festivals throughout the year. We are 20 minutes from Gladwater and Mineola which is an antique lovers paradise. Also, we are 20 minutes from Tyler where you can shop in the many boutiques, outdoor mall, antique shopping and more. Tyler has many beautiful parks to enjoy such as the Rose Garden, Children's Park and Bergfield Park, which holds events monthly. We are just 45 minutes from the world famous Canton Trades Days held monthly in Canton, TX on the first Monday weekend of every month. For the holidays we are 10 minutes from Santa Land which is a drive thru Christmas light park. There is always something to see or do within minutes from your doorstep. I will provide more details at the cottage.
