About James and Mary Wilhite

We built this cabin in 1996 as our primary residence and now rent it out for others to enjoy. My Wife and I love the peace and quiet of country living and the ability to take a hike in the woods for quiet time.

Nice and clean and definitely off the beaten path!

  • 4 of 5

Nice hosts and nice property. Stairs to upstairs are very tall, and narrow, so takes some getting used to. No rails on inclined path to house, or on the porches, so not great place for people with walking issues. Was beautiful place to wake up in the morning.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed this peaceful, quiet cabin in the woods. James was very kind to have fresh eggs, cream and coffee waiting for us. Everything we needed was in the cabin. We enjoyed our weekend in east Texas!

I am most impressed with the hosts for this cabin. When my plans changed they were quite accommodating. I will definitely book this cabin again in the future.

Loved the secluded location of the cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is secluded but close enough to a variety of restaurants to eat at each night. Only a 30 min. drive to Canton. We loved our weekend away and would definitely stay here again!

Friendly owners and a quiet place to get away.

  • 4 of 5

So nice to sit back on the porch or inside the window surrounded living room and watch the squirrels plan their next nut to conquer. Listening to the wind blow through the trees and catching a 'hello' from one of the donkeys in the pasture are a couple of other treats you get to experience. A nice, quiet and hidden cabin to give a try for yourself.

The cabin was beautiful and we had a good time there

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the cabin over the weekend. It's an amazing place to get away and to enjoy the nature. Our sons had so much fun running in the woods, and playing by the lake. The cabin was very cozy, beautifully decorated and welcoming. Thank you so much.
