Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sam,



Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful holiday home and making us feel very welcome. My daughter has really enjoyed collecting eggs and of course using the zip wire. I’ve been up and back to Dallas twice this week already as we close out a few things up there and start to move into a new house we found in Katy. As we only just stopped for the day I didn’t want to come and disturb your evening but did want to say thank you so much again for making us feel welcome which has really smoothed our transition to Houston.



We will likely leave around 10 tomorrow, but knowing us we will probably have left something and could well be back latter!



Best wishes,



James

I DO like Blue Eggs and Sam!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for family gatherings. My sons (10 and 12) and I came to town for my brother's wedding. When I discovered "the ranch" at the same price as a hotel, I excitedly invited other family members to join us, my treat. In all, up to 6 adults and 2 children stayed here for 5 days. "The ranch" quicky became the hub of activity for the rest of my family and some of their friends. Each morning we gathered the beautiful colored eggs and talked to the horses. The zipline was thrilling and well-used (make sure you ask Sam for the equipment because it is not left out in the weather). People arriving from the snowy Northeast particularly enjoyed lounging on the back porch and a cook out in the fire pit. The highlight was renting the gokarts-2 hours was plenty-well worth the extra expense. A real compliment to the owners was that my brother opted to have his groomsmen and himself dress for the wedding from "the ranch". Sam and his family (the owners) were the best hosts. They were available when needed, but non-intrusive. When his wife (pardon my poor memory for names) saw that we were having a cookout, she brought us a red checkered table cloth. The home was very spacious and there was never a feeling of being overcrowded. This is the perfect place for a low key family getaway. This trip will be forever etched in my heart as a warm and meaningful family bonding.

Great Place To Stay

  • 4 of 5

The layout of the house inside and outside was great for us and well set up for the kids with a great zip line for the young ones. The Location was within 3 miles of my daughters house. The house was clean and was up to my standers. Great customer service from the owner. It was nice for the owner to stop by and did not have a problem with the owner house being in the back yard.

We had a wedding the weekend we stayed and my daughter took us to attractions and restaurants in the area.

Problems.

Did not like the traffic in the area not what I am use to.

The stairs on the back deck had one stair run that was rotten with a hole in it.

For the price I would not stay there with just my wife. But sharing the price with another family was the way to go and is what we did.

My overall recommendation if I gave a score from 1-10, I would rate it at 9.5.

I would recommend this property to anyone. It Was A Great Place To Stay.

Thankyou,

RDB

Perfect Getaway in North Houston!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I live in Houston but with family visiting we were looking for a nice little getaway that could house everyone comfortably and provide a long relaxing weekend. This house could not have been any better!

The house is so spacious, updated, and has tons of beds and separate rooms for everyone. We loved feeling like we were off on some ranch in a nice wooded area, but also being able to easily drive out to stores/sites in the city.

We loved the zip lines, being able to walk up and pet the horses any time, looking at all the chickens in the coup, feeding the ducks in the pond, and even seeing the goats that wander over from the neighbor's. We also loved laying in the hammock and cooking smores over the fire pit! The kids had a blast with everything as well.

The owners live in their house on the other side of the property so they're very responsive if there is an issue, but also it felt like we had a ton of privacy.

We are already thinking about when we can come back again!

Great place for a family get together!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Rush Ranch in March 2016 for a large family get together. The house is great with an open concept and it was larger than we expected so it worked out very well for us. The house is nicely furnished, well stocked and very, very clean. The best part of the ranch is the huge back yard with several activities to entertain everybody in the family. We loved the zip line, bicycles and fire pit but the kids really enjoyed having the horses and chickens around. We even had daily visits from a goat that lived across the street! We also greatly appreciated the owners who were extremely helpful and provided awesome customer service. I would highly recommend this to friends and relatives. Thanks so much for everything!

Great house for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We have a late Christmas with our family in January every year and we rented Sam & Mary's house this year! What a great place for our family Christmas gathering!! Plenty of room for everyone to visit and move around. The kids loved the zip line and being able to see the horses and chickens. The bedrooms were very comfortable, as was the whole house. Close to shopping and restaurants. We will be contacting Sam and Mary about next year's gathering. Thanks for your hospitality!!!!
