Our home was built by Texas oilman and businessman J.R. Parten. The property was visited by then sitting President Lyndon B. Johnson. The guest suite was Parten's home office, complete with a cement lined closet that he used as a fireproof vault/safe.
“Amazing!!! We were greeted by a few friendly faces and their sweet dog ❤ I loved the welcoming party and we absolutely loved our stay. Their house is beautiful. The room was so neat and clean. They gave us our privacy and the entire stay was very peaceful. We felt very comfortable and at home. I would highly recommend staying here and would come back ANY TIME!! 😊❤”
You’ll love my place because of the coziness, the high ceilings, the views, and the location. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and big groups.
“My boyfriend and I were looking for somewhere we could hole up for a romantic getaway and this place did not disappoint! The privacy amongst cattle ranches was perfect to enjoy the Texas landscape, complete with wildflowers and eagles soaring above. The place was sparkling clean when we arrived and there were plenty of snacks and travel-sized lotions/shampoos/conditioners to welcome us. The front porch rocking chairs were wonderful for watching the sunset and enjoying the endless sky. The bathroom in general was huge with a great shower and my favorite piece of the whole stay- the copper bathtub, roomy, hot and relaxing for a soak (bubble bath supplies included!). The only thing less than absolutely perfect was the size of the kitchen, which is quite small as shown in the pictures. However, with that being said, we cooked three meals while there and were able to make it work! The spot is a short 20 minute drive to Fort Boggy State Park, where we hiked and relaxed by the lake. Truly perfect Texas getaway!”

“My boyfriend's 6yr old, Summer, and myself had such an amazing weekend girls trip at the ranch! So much so we're planning on another trip in the next few months with my boyfriend and his 13yr old daughter joining as well. It was incredibly neat having all the animals so close and all of them being so friendly. We really enjoyed all the interaction and getting to know their different personalities. We loved them all but there were 3 that just stole our hearts and made it so hard to leave. The two little fawns were so sweet and gentle. They would come get snacks from us and lay down next to us while we were relaxing outside. There is something so peaceful and calming about them that you just sort of absorb. And then there is Cinnamon, the one of a kind silly little mischief maker pygmy goat. We wanted to load her up and bring her on home with us! We loved waking up and being greeting by her every morning. She would run around jumping and hopping with Summer. Jump up in our laps and cuddle or try to nibble Summer's bouncy curls lol. She has so much personality. When we would walk away from the cabin to another area of the ranch we would hear her crying for us to come back and when she would see us returning she would come running and hopping over to the gate bleating excitedly. The small cabin was perfect for us and had everything and more than we needed. This is not a trendy cabin, it's a nice ranch cabin that is very tastefully decorated, comfortable, and feels like home as soon as you enter. I wouldn't change a single thing about it. It was perfect. Crystal and Randy are amazing. The little extras you can do while at the ranch were a treat. Our favorite, feeding the animals with Randy in the morning, what an adventure lol! Summer really enjoyed her trail ride and has already said she will be doing that again on the next trip. I originally planned on renting the golf cart but with us being such big animal lovers and my adventure buddy being an extremely energetic 6yr old we ended really enjoying just walking around the property on foot. Both days we walked the entire front and middle section of the property in the morning and at night. Crystal joined us for the first evening walk and told us all about the property, the animals, and had us laughing with some of her stories. We did some catch and release fishing and did a lot of petting and feeding lol. We brought a 5lbs bag of apples, 5lbs bag of carrots, and a head of lettuce for the ducks. Next time I will bring more lol we just enjoyed feeding everyone treats too much so by 300pm Saturday we were out of goodies and didn't have any to give Sunday when saying goodbye. :-P. If you enjoy spending time outdoors and love interaction with animals then you will love it here. It makes me so happy seeing kids enjoying the outdoors and I'm always pushing the girls to get out and do somthing and not have their heads stuck in an ipad or phone (which they both now have thanks to their dad...). Summer did reach for or even mention anything about her ipad the entire trip. It stayed in the suv completely forgotten which was a first that has ever happened on any trip I've had with her. Usually she starts asking about it if we are inside or a few hours after we have settled in and checked the new place out. Not here. Not one single time. It was amazing lol”
