About Leigh Ann Smith
Hi, we're Rocky and Leigh Ann! We operate Holiday Acres, a choose & cut Christmas tree farm. Rocky's day job is as an engineer at NASA, and Leigh Ann is the farm's office manager. We love nothing more than sharing our piece of God's creation with others. When we're not running the farm or welcoming guests to our 2 tiny houses, we enjoy visits with our grandchildren and participating in the life of our church.
Leigh Ann Smith purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Leigh Ann Smith chose Manvel
Though raised in the city, we always wanted to live in the country. In 1999, when we first visited this property, there was a peace about it that you could just feel when you walked in the gate. Originally a dairy farm, there is a grain silo built in 1905 and an old metal barn. We loved it. So, we built our house here and raised our children and our trees. We decided to grow Christmas trees because it would be easy. Ha! Live and learn. Twice a year, Rocky has to shear about 8,000 trees. Planting, mowing, weed control, and all the rest keeps Rocky very busy most of the time. Then comes Christmas season, and things really start hopping around here! The Christmas tree farm is choose & cut, so we are able to welcome many families as they come to cut their own tree and make a sweet family memory. When we started out growing Christmas trees, we never imagined doing anything more than that with our property, but over time we began making the farm available as a photo venue, then we added the 2 tiny houses as vacation rentals, and now we are adding to and upgrading our facilities to be able to operate as an event venue. Come stay with us and you'll see why we love it so much!

A tiny house on a Christmas Tree Farm!!! Everything was perfect!!! We loved the sound of the water on the pond, the easy drive and the whole experience of a tiny house. We will definitely do it again!! And if we’re in this area, stay here once again. We were actually talking about coming back around Christmas time and volunteering to work on the farm just for bragging rights to say we worked on a Christmas a tree farm!! Thanks so much!!!! M&T
I stayed at the Tiny House while I was in town for work. The house was perfect for my needs, fair price, and the owners were friendly and very accommodating.
Thank you so much, Nava! It was a delight having you as our guest. We would be happy to host you again any time!
