It is the perfect place to enjoy a West Texas sunset, dark starlit nights, and peace and quiet you can only find in the country.

Two living areas with 3 flat screen TVs. Sleeping accommodations include: one bedroom with a queen bed, one bedroom with a full size bed, a bunk room with three sets of bunk beds, and a den with a queen size sofa bed.

About Dee Dee Lee

Andy purchased this home in 1998 and it has undergone several renovations along the way. He grew up in West Texas and fondly calls this area of Texas home though we currently reside in Central Texas.

Why Dee Dee Lee chose Texas

This home is located in the middle of nowhere which is the perfect backdrop for family time. Our grown children travel for hours to reach this destination to be able to reconnect with each other and de-stress from their hectic lives. When they bring their friends in from the city they are amazed at the brightness of the stars and the beautiful sunsets. We hope others will find the same peace and relaxation when visiting.

If your travels are taking you to the Abilene/Sweetwater area and you want to stay somewhere other than a chain hotel right off the freeway, this is a fantastic spot that feels remote, but is not too far out of the way. We were on a slow road trip crawl from Austin to Palo Duro Canyon, and needed a place to stay along the way but wanted something different with room to move. We were traveling with two tween girls and two dogs, and this place was great for all critters, including the parents. So much space, well-provisioned kitchen, fantastic game room with fireplace. Kids played pool, kicked the soccer ball around in yard, and explored outside. Everyone enjoyed the sunsets, which in this terrain, surround you in 360 degrees of beauty each night. Near historic and quirky Buffalo Gap and Abilene SP, which we did one day, and then on our way up to Palo Duro, we went into Abilene for some Texas history. Thanks to the owners for providing such a welcome place of respite!

We enjoyed our time in Nolan.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Nolan house before and really liked the renovations they have done since our last visit. There was a brand new refrigerator, dishwasher and stove and a nice update to the kitchen. This home is a great place for our extended family to get together. The owners have provided plenty of kitchen supplies, microwave and coffee makers to fix a few meals and it is near enough to Sweetwater (about 15 minutes) and several good places to eat there. We had some delicious burgers at Heff's and picked up some groceries at Walmart. We have family in Abilene and it is a nice drive for them to come visit or for us to drive in to Abilene. I think it was about a 45 minutes drive. If you go to Abilene you might enjoy shopping at LaVilla which has Mexican Pottery and imports, furniture and a flea market type vendor mall. I certainly do appreciate the owner's willingness to work with us and help us schedule and make us feel welcome. They were very accommodating and I would recommend this vacation rental. It is a sweet, relaxed farmhouse with interesting and clever updates and lots of the old character too. There is plenty of room for everyone to gather around and visit or find a peaceful area both indoors and outdoors.

Easter weekend in the country!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the house! It was a good meeting place for our family, who came from Fort Worth, Midland, and Lubbock. We brought some groceries to make lunch, and we found the kitchen to be stocked with all the cooking utensils and everything we needed. Fortunately, the weather was great, and we spent most of our time in the backyard sitting on lawn chairs watching the guys shoot skeet. It is definitely out in the country but the GPS took us directly to the house without any issues. Thanks so much for promptly answering all of questions we had and helping our family have a great stay.

Everything we could have asked for!

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal location for relaxing with our family! It was very easy to communicate with the owners prior to our stay to ask questions regarding our visit. We were able to meet and enjoy plenty of space and beautiful amenities. The house was very clean and well stocked with everything we could possible need. The expansive game room gave adults and children a place to enjoy time together! Thank you for allowing us to share in your beautiful home and make lasting memories for our family! We will definitely come back to stay in the future!
