About Cathy Krafve
My nick name is "super gram" to a new generation of our family. Super-multitasker and queen of hospitality might also work. Our family's mission is to create a safe and welcoming environment for all those God brings across our path. And we our LOVE Texas heritage! We like to say truth and twang meet at our house!
Cathy Krafve purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Cathy Krafve chose Flint
We bought the Sunflower Cabin as a retreat for our family and friends. We even lived in it one summer as we renovated our home. East Texas is home to four generations of our family and we like to welcome siblings and cousins to get away from the big city and return to their roots. One international artist has even used it as a studio and retreat for a special series of projects. New Pine Cove leaders have nested there as they looked to settle into new responsibilities. Each family that visits brings happy memories and we feel blessed to share it and witness what God will do.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Sunflower is the ideal retreat for anyone looking to spend quality time with family unplugged. Or, for those seeking a creative retreat or a thoughtful sabbatical. We are definitely off the beaten path in a quiet neighborhood where deer, raccoons, and foxes saunter by with their offspring on a regular basis.

Quiet peaceful neighborhood, beautiful landscape & close to Tyler!
Loved the unique architecture of the cabin & the”treehouse” feel. Enjoyed watching the deer come through the yard & neighborhood. The fire pit & wood out back was a nice treat. Cabin was equipped with everything we needed; & quite comfortably furnished. Cathy & Dave Krafve are great & friendly hosts, very accommodating to their guests. Our week in the Sunflower Cabin was just the respite we needed!
We loved having you guys here, Pam and Jeff! What an inspiration you are. I hope we will see you again soon!
Peace & Serenity
Cathy's Sunflower cabin was a welcome getaway from the big city.
No airplane or traffic noise was a great bonus. Of course, the tall pines and oaks are always the most beautiful in East Texas. Sitting up high with all the windows around was really great as well. If you like to cook out, we really suggest highly Ranch Brand Meats on Hwy 155. We brought home rib-eyes, fillets, chicken fried steak, hamburger, sausage, etc. which are so much better than grocery stores quality it is unbelievable.
If you are vegan, please disregard the previous sentence.
It was so much fun having you guys here! My heart was so happy to hear of all the ways you were relaxing and refreshing your souls! I can’t wait to try Ranch Brand Meats! What a great tip!
Wonderful, Quiet Retreat
Sunflower is a wonderful, quiet retreat from the outside world. Yet, it is so convenient to Tyler that if you wish to return to the real world and leave the serenity behind, you may .
Cathy Krafve is a gracious host and we never felt pressured. The cabin is adequately appointed with almost everything we needed for our 4 day stay. If you want TV/Internet/WIi-Fi, go somewhere else.
Thank you for your kind review, David. We so enjoyed having you visit. Y'all are such a blessing! Thank you for all the thoughtful touches you left for us to find after your departure!
Cathy was a wonderful host and the sunroom windows made you feel like you were in the trees!

Our favorite thing about having the Sunflower is meeting amazing families like yours. Thank you for your kind review and your friendship! We are so happy to share life with you guys!
Awesome place to stay off Lake Placid
We had a terrific stay at the Sunflower. We had all of the amenities we needed and more. The area is beautiful and quiet. I think I saw over 20 deer in a nearby field one morning driving into the establishment. Overall awesome place! Thanks for having us Cathy!
Weston, we are going to be watching for the "rock stars" of disc golf! Hope we see you again soon!
Between Tyler's world-class Caldwell Zoo and the Bullard's Freedom Museum there are no end of attractions in this region. Flint is strategically located for water sports, shooting sports, and golf. We also have the New York Zip Line nearby and we are a short drive to Canton's First Monday Trades Day, which is acres of booths from antique furniture to hand-crafted clothes to home and hunting accessories.
