20 minutes from downtown Fort Worth and the Sundance Square
40 minutes to Six Flags Over Texas, Hurricane Harbor, and AT&T Stadium.
10 min to local shopping, dining, fast food, groceries, beautiful library and park, wildlife park, and more.
Please note, we do not book parties or to groups of guests under 25 years of age.
Located on almost 5 acres of land, this two story country home is away from the noise and traffic of downtown but close enough for visiting and touring local areas.
We have a pond for fishing and/or paddling, a fun activity for kids and adults (we have life vests for children).
On the property, we have a deer feeder that deer regularly visit in the early morning (no hunting allowed).
There is occasional truck traffic, servicing the gas well on the neighboring 10 acres.
A dog pen/enclosure is located off to the side of the house, if needed.
*We are a family of hunters and we have multiple mounts, photos, etc. which may be disturbing to some people.
There is also a Game Room with 2 loft beds, a fireplace, TV, workout equipment, desk/workplace, sink and mini-fridge, and a pool table.
We also have chickens, providing fresh eggs.
Interaction with guests
As needed (see note regarding pet care).
The Game Room is also my husbands office which he would need daily access to, for just a couple of hours in the morning. This space also has two (2) loft beds which could bring the sleeping count to 10 but we would need to discuss the arrangements.
Pets and pet care: Cat (usually outside but comes in to eat and occasionally sleep)
Chickens (eight at last count, like to roam during the day but need to be locked up at night to keep them from being Critter Dinner.)
..... I am happy to let you run the house and tend to the pets daily or I can visit at a convenient time and take care of them.
Other things to note
The pond is stocked with fish for fishing (poles on-site), and a paddle boat for cruising, but pond level varies with the seasonal rains.
Life vests for small children are available.
Locally, we have a lovely winery/restaurant called Light Catcher that has wine tasting, live Jazz, etc. Approximately 15 minutes away is historic downtown Weatherford, with wonderful eateries and entertainment.
One of the house pets is a parrot, he talks, whistles, and makes random noises. He doesn't usually squawk in a loud and annoying way but he can. Also, sleeping in late can be difficult if you're a light sleeper, sleeping in the downstairs bedroom.
If the house is left in an exceptionally dirty or damaged condition, you may be charged an additional $100, or more, for cleaning and/or repair. I have never had to charge the extra amount and I hope I never will. Please do not abuse the privilege of using my home. In the event of household emergency (e.g. leak, no electricity, flooding water heater, etc) please contact us.
Please familiarize yourself and the other guests with the House Manual when booking.
Thank you for thinking of staying with us, we hope to see you soon!
