  • Daughter’s Graduation


    These grounds are BEAUTIFUL, so peaceful, relaxing, the gardens were so well kept, like a story book! The history is amazing!

    We had 10 people stay for my daughter’s SFA graduation and they all want to return, because it was such a wonderful place to stay, so relaxing and peaceful. (It was about 15 minutes south of Lufkin and about 25 more minutes to Nacogdoches, but we’ll worth the drive!

    We will be back♥️.

    Great coffee bars, teas, salt and pepper, dish soap, dish washer soap, everything available, creamers! It was Fantastic.

    I hate to even list the smallest issue, if you plan on cooking, bring your own pots and pans!

    Other than that, simply Devine and you will not be disappointed!

    I hate to give a good review, because I would love to keep the house as our families secret hideaway!

    Thank you for making this event so Fabulous ♥️🎉🥳.

  • Lovely stay


    We had a great time staying in The Mansion. It was interesting to look at the various documents displayed throughout the home. It's a bit out of town, but that is what makes it charming. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of linens. We cooked all meals and found the kitchen was supplies with everything we needed. Unfortunately it rained very hard the entire weekend we were there which made it impossible to explore the grounds. We would definitely come back.

  • Great Historical home.


    The property was what we wanted. Private location on a 1000 acres. They just need to seriously upgrade the cookware, Silverware and Glasses. They were really gross. The only other issue were the bath towels. Super old and and not enough for group of 8. We would stay at the property again if these issues were addressed!! Great house!

    Manager's Response:

    Hi there, thanks for taking the time to review your stay. After reading your feedback, the homeowner wanted to share the following:
    - We offer a wide range of glassware, stemware, coffee cups, China, mixing bowls, and stoneware for our guests to use. While they may not always be 8-piece matching sets, rest assured that they are all clean and ready for your convenience.
    - We completely understand that with a larger group of 6-8 guests or more, the availability of bath towels might run short. We have recently added new bath towels, hand towels, and bath cloths. Also, we purchased a new set of silverware, added cookware, and a 12-piece set of drinking glasses to enhance the experience for our future guests. However, we do provide a laundry room equipped with a washer and dryer, so you can conveniently freshen up your towels during your stay.
    - Our team takes great pride in maintaining a clean and well-manicured yard and home for our guests to enjoy. We sincerely apologize for any discrepancies in our kitchenware, towels, and linens. We will promptly conduct a thorough inventory to ensure everything is up to par.
    As always, we appreciate our guest’s suggestions so they can be completely comfortable and happy with their stay.

  • A step back in time.....


    What a gorgeous property! The photos are great but really don't do it justice, so much more beautiful in person. Our 3 yr old granddaughter was delighted to explore the grounds with SO many things to see. It was the perfect place to stay for a nearby family wedding. Thanks again for a fantastic weekend.

  • Amazing country experience


    Just like an Andy Griffith show! Friendly people. Fishing in the pond out back. Beautiful historic home. Adventures all over the area like renting a boat on Sam Rayburn lake. A true gem of a find that is like stepping back 70 years into a different time. The home is very remote, you're neighbors are a long ways off across fields. People rarely drive by the small rural paved road. Idyllic place to sit in the gazebo, watching the sun rise or set with friends and family. Enjoy a different historic way of life.
