Guestbook comments from the owner

Sorry to disappoint my Houston guests. Rick & I had no idea you were looking for a romantic hideaway! If we made you uncomfortable in some fashion I do apologize. We are so accustomed to having guests stay we no longer suffer from “Gladys Cravits” syndrome thus not focusing on what is going on at the guest house. The amenities section of both and are accurate for what we provide. I would venture a guess I provide more than what is listed. Yes the tank less hot water heater is finicky – sorry you did not bond with the system – we like the eco friendly nature of the unit. Oops, the auto temp button was not pushed on the HVAC unit. When engaged, the unit works with a thermostat while controlling the temperature. I have added the instructions to my “helpful hints” provided for all the guests. Rick & I consider the guest house an extension of our home and pride ourselves in providing the accommodations we advertise and each guest agrees to when making their reservation. We enjoyed having you as our guests and welcome you back anytime!

CAddo River Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several cabins using home away but this was our favorite. This was nestled on 32 acres of wooded land with a stream running thru it. Although the cabin was close to the owners home this was never an issue as we had complete privacy. If you can't leave the city and come to this cabin to relax, you can't relax. Plenty of rivers (rated from 1 - 5) to kayak/canoe. I would definitely recommend staying here. The hosts made it so easy and enjoyable.

Great property. Loved how the guest house was decorated & the outdoor kitchen& the different areas to relax around the cabin . It could have been closer to town but that is why it's called a getway.

Too close

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and very clean, however the cabins porch was only about 30 feet from the owners bedroom. Whether you were sitting on the porch trying to enjoy a cup of coffee or you were in the Jacuzzi you are looking at their bedroom or porch. I knew the owner lived onsite but wasn't expecting it to be so close. Also one evening when we were cooking dinner at the outdoor kitchen, it was raining and the electric cook top was drenched, not our idea of a safe environment.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately I cannot control Mother Nature. When raining the side burner on the propane grill is a great option. I do everything possible to provide privacy to all my guests allowing them to enjoy the property. Although my house is visible (not my bedroom) as is the second rental unit there is ample space for everyone to enjoy.

The perfect place to getaway from the hustle and bustle of every day life!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a whole week here and it was absolutely wonderful. We loved the outdoor kitchen and even in the dead heat of summer it was nice enough for us to cook outside every morning and evening. The creek was perfect for our 4 kids. They spent every day catching crawfish and little fish with bait nets. We also did some fishing with our fishing poles using small rooster tails and caught a lot of little fish that we threw back. There are plenty of places to sit back and enjoy the cool river water without worrying about the depth of the water for children. The owners provide beach chairs, lawn chairs and picnic tables down by the water. The hospitality was the best. Although the guest house is right by the owners house, you truly feel like you have all of the privacy you need. They provide towels, cooking utensils, pots, pans, even cleaning supplies. All you need is food, good drinks and a swimming suit. Lori even brought over fresh homemade blueberry muffins one morning. The hot tub was perfect after spending the day in the cool river water. The only thing that would've made the stay better would have been a better grill. We used it at least twice a day and the starter wasn't the best. You had to use a long grill lighter to get it lit but even when the one that we were using (provided by them) ran out of fuel, they provided us with another one. Honestly, we are usually anxious to get home following a vacation. This time, we wished we could have stayed another week or longer. We will definitely be back!
