About Cal & Carolyn Tipton

My husband and I are both officially retired but not stopping. He retired from Fire Dept and I from retail management. We have been in the building industry for years, from metal buildings to homes. We now build houses to sell.

We designed and built our home after years of collecting and appreciating antiques. My things just did not go well in a regular home, so we built this dog run style home.

We lived in the little apt while we built our home, so I know I love it and hope you do too.

We have travelled all 50 states by motorcycle. Rented in Alaska and Hawaii. But actually rode our own for two weeks per summer to do the West, then East, then center of US. Its our love.

We also love our flower beds and entertaining when the weather provides.

Why Cal & Carolyn Tipton chose Lufkin

We think you will love the little touches of the apt. I cannot think of a thing that you could need, that I have not tried to provide. It is quite and often we never see our guests once they go in. We are alittle out so feels like the deep country, but close to activities so as not to miss out on great shopping and eating. We think you will love the laid back atmosphere.

What makes this apartment unique

Full kitchen with washer and dryer. Outdoor covered parking and patio area with propane gas grill and patio table. We also have a fire pit for you to enjoy when the weather allows. Better price an amenities than staying at a motel. We also enjoy helping you anyway we can. Lots of information on the Lufkin and surrounding areas.

There are all kinds of neat shopping stores downtown with a great coffee bar and wine bar and brewery which offer night time entertainment. Eating we have. If it is special requests, let me know. We have a basement 5 star eating in downtown and I can set you up with flowers and massage or anything for that special occasion .

Cozy Stay at a Great Price

  • 5 of 5

I had a fantastic stay & definitely plan on coming back. The outside property was beautiful & just outside of town to be relaxing & quiet.

The room itself was very clean & cozy. Welcoming wine samplers & delicious banana nut bread were waiting for us when we checked in. Everything we needed was provided: Stand up shower, towels, comfy bed, clean fridge, coffee maker, coffee flavors, silverware, plates, cups & bowls.

There was wifi that was blazingly fast as well as TV with plenty of channels. The hosts themselves were so helpful and kind, and were there if we needed them.

Not only will I be back because I like supporting a local business rather than a big hotel chain, but the place was just beautiful, cozy and quiet.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Windmill Hill. The place was clean and comfortable, and it had everything we needed for our trip. You can tell that Cal and Carolyn pay attention to every detail to make their guests feel welcome. Best banana bread waiting for us on arrival as well as many other extras and special touches. We loved chatting with Carolyn, and she provided great options on local things to do and places to explore while we were there. Sitting by the fire pit was our favorite way to relax at the end of the day. We hope to return next time we come to East Texas. Thank you again for your excellent accommodations and hospitality.

We have forests, historic downtown with shopping, museums, from Forestry, Historic (Old Stone Fort, where Sam Houston set up Texas), Natural History and others. Great places to eat too. If you want to fish, there is Sam Rayburn, which is one of the largest man made lakes in Texas with many places to put in close to us. We have one of the nicest golf courses in Texas and really close. There are actually 3 close by. If you love to hike , we have that too, with a lot of forest to explore. If you ride a motorcycle, well we know that too as we also ride. We would love to give you some routes that we find pretty and enjoy. I try to provide a lot of info in apt. with maps and everything you need.
