About Stephanie Zajac

We are empty nesters with time on our hands! We met in Dallas in 1978 at Northway Baptist Church, married in 1981, and have a son in college and a married daughter in Chicago. We have owned our own business in Plano since 1983. Entertaining in our home is one of our favorite things to do!

Stephanie Zajac purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Stephanie Zajac chose Texas

We had been looking for over a year for a weekend place. When we found this house in the fall of 2013 we got so excited! The fact that it is an hour from Dallas was a plus. And it's in beautiful East Texas near wonderful people and shopping.

What makes this cottage unique

8 minutes from First Monday Trade Days

25 minutes from amazing shopping in Mineola

Back porch with views of nothing but trees!

Neighbors have horses that come to the fence many mornings and we hear the cows gossiping on the land behind us.

Best place to stay in Canton!

  • 5 of 5

After shopping all day through the heat and humidity of the day, it was such a pleasure to return to a place that was so calming and relaxing! The cottage was just perfect for our trip! Outside was the large deck and back porch where you can just sit and relax and watch the ducks in the pond and inside was the lovely sun room with comfortable seating for everyone! We'll definitely be back!

Great place for two families to getaway together

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect halfway meet for families from Houston & OKC to meet & relax.

This charming cottage was just what we needed to enjoy some relaxing indoors and exploring outdoors. The lovely kitchen is well supplied with cookware, dishes, etc. the sunroom is HUGE & has great views all directions.

We enjoyed morning & afternoons on the back patio watching ducks playing. We also had a nice visit learning about the cottage when we happened to meet the owners.

Very friendly for kids of all ages and Milo the Great Dane had a great time exploring too!

We will be back!!

Immaculate and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we needed for our girls weekend in Canton for 1st Monday. It was clean, nicely decorated, and plenty of space! I could not say enough about the owners and how helpful and kind they were to us as we were there during the Canton tornadoes. We were very blessed to be in their home at that time, as they were constantly checking on us via text and were so hospitable even though they weren't there. It was nice to have their support from afar and know that they cared. We would definitely stay in this lovely home again!

Perfect Country Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with 5 other ladies at the Canton Cottage for First Monday and it could not have been more perfect. The house was great for a girl's weekend..plenty of room, quaint decor, stocked kitchen, awesome back patio and country surroundings. We had some bad weather and the owner was more than accommodating. It was a great opportunity for some chick flicks in the tv room. The owner was over the top! I highly recommend the Canton Cottage.

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a weekend getaway that was close to home.....this place was perfect! The home is beautiful....so cozy and comfy! It is very well furnished with everything you could possibly need. The backyard and deck is over the top great! I travel alot and this did not feel like a rental property.....It felt like my best friend had opened her home to me! We will definitely be back! One of my all time favorites!
