About Mary Kay Williamson

Approx. 6 years ago, while browsing E-bay, we discovered this treasure! This chestnut beauty had been disassembled & was sitting in a warehouse in Philadelphia. It was originally located in Lancaster County, Penn. in the heart of Amish Country. After its cross country journey, courtesy of 2 eighteen wheeler, it reached its new home in historic Cisco, Texas. We had it resurrected in the front yard of our 1890's Victorian home, nestled in the oak trees. It has been a long labor of love to restore it to its original glory. Enjoy climbing the original stairs that were there before the Civil War! To us, it is such an American treasure, we want to share it with you!

Mary Kay Williamson purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Mary Kay Williamson chose Texas

We purchased our Victorian home in Cisco 16 years ago because we fell in love with the area and all its historic homes and quiet neighborhoods. Downtown there are many antique stores, a unique coffee shop, and some good restaurants. After surfing the web one Christmas, we found this cabin on E-bay. We have always loved historic cabins and have a love for primitive antiques. It was so much fun fixing it up and using the antiques and unusual items we have used to decorate. It has truly been a labor of love! When we actually moved to Cisco in 2010, we opened an antique business downtown called Log Cabin Collectibles and Custom Framing.

What makes this cabin unique

After surfing the web one Christmas, we found this cabin on E-bay and fell in love with the primitive dwelling. We have always loved historic cabins and have a love for primitive antiques. What a great marriage and oh what a journey!!! It was so much fun fixing it up and using the antiques and unusual items we have used to decorate. From old well covers and colanders for lighting to galvanized buckets and wash tubs for sinks, it has truly been a labor of love!

A must visit again location......

  • 5 of 5

We were charmed by the work John & Mary Kay have completed on this sweet little cabin. The decorations were perfect. The amenities were exactly what we needed. The bed was very comfortable and had a lot of pillows. The entire cabin was spotless and with TWO bathrooms we easily could have brought our kids. NOT! Anyway, the cabin was more than what we expected. The French toast breakfast was so delicious we almost licked our plates. This was so enjoyable I do wish we had stayed the entire weekend. We will be back!

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is unique and beautiful. My husband and I had a great weekend in this roomy, well appointed and unbelieveably comfortable cabin. The delicious hot breakfasts which were delivered by the owners each morning was an unexpected lagniappe! Jon and Mary Kay are exceedingly hospitable. I highly recommend a stay at the, Guest Haus.
