Best kept secret!
I almost don’t want to write a review because I don’t want this place to book up when I want to come back. This place is so much fun! House is nice, clean, has everything we needed. Animals are well kept and 2 deer even hang out on the porch! My whole family loved this place and we will be back!
We rented this property for a long weekend and it was wonderful! The house is very well kept and comfortably furnished, the grounds keeper is kind and hospitable, the owners were very quick to respond to questions we had prior to our stay, and the foreman was knowledgeable and great about taking us out in the ranch truck to feed the animals. I have never stayed at a ranch house that was so well kept, no wasps nests on the porch or spider webs. The property is beautiful, relaxing and convenient to get to. We highly recommend renting this property!
Thank you for your kind words about the farm. We take great care to be sure that our guests are comfortable and relaxed! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay.

We had a wonderful time.
Comfortable accommodations, great property with a wide variety of animals, including deer, zebras. and bison, among others. Crystal & Bubba were very helpful and we had a great time. We do plan to come back.
Even better than expected!
We found this property to be everything we wanted and more! Beautiful home with amazing kitchen and plenty of windows looking out onto scenic views of trees and wildlife. Plenty of room for everyone! Master bedroom had enormous king bed with luxury linens and pillows. Two other bedrooms offered privacy for all. The patio was well equipped and peaceful. The deer were gentle and friendly. Caretaker Crystal provided us with information and answered all of our questions. It was great fun to rent the golf cart and ride all over the property seeing all the animals. Our grandkids came to visit and enjoyed the outdoors and sunshine. We were so lucky, this was a perfect trip thanks to the amazing owners.
Best way to start off our family vacation
Had a fun time enjoying the scenery, animals, and peaceful surroundings. Crystal and BJ were very friendly and helpful whenever we needed something. Was a very relaxing time. House was perfect and it felt like home. Centerville was close by if we needed anything. Enjoyed fishing, sitting on the back porch, playing cards/board games and the ride around the property that BJ gave us on our 2nd to last day there. It is truly a hidden gym that people should enjoy. If ever up in this area again we will be staying. Thanks again for making the first part of our summer vacation a success!
Description Didn't Match Reality
The staff was great, friendly, helpful, attentive but not cloying. The deer, the exotics, the dog, and the cabin were exactly as described. The setting not so much. You are literally a stones-throw from I-45. The beautiful, well-appointed and decorated cabin is so well insulated that you don't hear it on the inside but on the outside it's as bad as where I live in Austin. The impression given is that you are going to be in a cabin isolated down a driveway. You're not. Second, the pond was only stocked 3 years ago. Just now the fish are getting to be the right size. However, If you're not a country person, but would like to see whitetail deer and exotic animals close up, it's better than any petting zoo or outdoor safari. If you're a person who likes to catch pan fish this is the place for you. The pan fish were plentiful and easily caught.
Having said all this the most annoying part of the whole trip was the interface with VRBO. I don't know if it is possible but I will try to avoid renting through them.
I am writing to request you remove your review. We have been consistently been rated 5 star with 2 4 star rating in 18 months. I am not able to protest it with VRBO and it can only be removed by you,
We would appreciate your help in keeping our ratings and host status where we try hard to keep it.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter
