Great Spring Get-Away Place

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect for getting out of DFW and away to the Hill Country for a few days while the wife was visiting her mom in Virginia. The Owners were very accommodating to the late reservation and the place was immaculate inside and out. The great instructions, well-appointed, cool Texas décor, comfortable furnishings, and more than adequate supplies and necessities made our stay very enjoyable. Bailey (lab mix) and Ellie (Corgi mix) had a great time playing in the yard and chasing not just each other, but the deer around. Even with the lakefront having been moved quite a bit by the drought, this is still a very nice relaxing place. Would love to come back, whether or not the lake does. Praying it does though - and soon.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The Lone Star Retreat was a perfect place to get away from it all and just relax! My husband and I spent the weekend there with our three kids. We all loved to sit on the front porch and visit. The kids especially enjoyed running around in the font yard, and had plenty of room to play football and soccer. The inside was spacious and comfortable. Can't wait to stay there again!
