Best VRBO experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

I've been to a lot of rentals and this is BY FAR the best! The pictures accurately represent the rental, but it's even prettier in person. Lauren was a class act and her communication and accommodation was far above the norm. This place really does have it all, inside and out!

Best VRBO Experience Yet!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been renting homes all over Texas through VRBO for the last 6 or 7 years. After our stay at this retreat last week, we've all voted it as our favorite, hands down! The home and the grounds were perfectly maintained, every need was anticipated, and everything provided for! We loved tranquil morning walks around the picturesque pond, entire evenings spent round the massive fire pit, and especially loved meeting some local neighbors and learning about the history of the Old Lebanon Cemetery! Fascinating history, and extremely friendly people! Lauren and her husband Jason could not have been more friendly, hospitiable or accommodating! They made sure we had plenty of firewood, and were quick to text or call us back if we had any questions. Would highly recommend this property to anyone like us, looking for a peaceful restorative getaway from reality! We'll definitely be coming back to this little slice of heaven soon!

Our 2017 Thanksgiving at the Ranch

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of fourteen individuals, including four family units, spanning three generations spent Thanksgiving and the following weekend at the ranch, and loved every minute of our time together. On Friday, a group went striper fishing on Lake Whitney that produced enough filets to provide a meal of fried fish and cornbread for all. The house was all it was advertised to be, and we took advantage of the pastures for long walks to inspect the feral hog traps as well as the cemetery grounds. We loved eating 'smores' around the fire pit and stargazing while listening to the coyotes call. We can recommend the ranch without hesitation.

Pure Country Heaven INDEED

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything shown in the photos and descriptions -- and so, so, so much more.

We're a group of 12 lifelong girl friends who have, for 40 years, been carving out time to spend together around the holidays -- we usually go a different place each year, but less than a day into this trip, everyone asked if we could come back to this same property next year.

The location is great; we were out by ourselves on a beautiful ranch but still close to shopping and events in the Waco area.

Walking the property in the mornings and sitting around the fire pit at night with stars everywhere was so relaxing and peaceful (although the cows might think we were a bit loud with the laughing, dancing, and storytelling).

All the girls thought the inside of the home was the nicest we've ever stayed in -- and we've stayed in some nice houses -- and there was plenty of room for all of us, whether we were eating, sleeping, or relaxing in the living area.

Leading up to our visit, the property owner answered all of our questions right away and made sure we were ready and comfortable for our long weekend.

Although this was a girls getaway weekend for us, this property is perfect for big family events as well. There is so much to do once you unplug!!

I can't say enough good things about this property or our experience.

2nd Annual stay here and we can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

This ranch has it all!! We found this place last year for our annual ladies trip to Texas. We absolutely fell in love with this place! You drive up and immediately encounter cows that you literally have to drive through to get to the ranch. It's what would come to mind when you envision staying on a Texas ranch. The setting is quiet and peaceful. The stars at night are unlike anything I'd ever seen! The house itself was perfect! We cooked many meals in the kitchen and had room to spare. It was a group of 11 ladies this year and we never felt cramped. Lauren was wonderful in getting all information to us for our stay. And she was always extremely helpful of any issues that arose. We cannot wait to return to this ranch. It's an amazing place to spend some time and I would highly recommend it!! :))))
