Come get a big dose of Texas! Working cattle ranch with 200 acres of rugged country to explore. Quite often we will ride by the cabin on the horses and kids can climb on for a photo or short ride. Take a dip in the the 6 acre private lake that also offers great fishing and kayaking. Want some adventure? Sign up for the Jeep tour of the ranch. Serious about fishing? Get the 2 man bass boat with trolling motor. Want to see stars? We are an hour SW of Fort Worth so well away from the city lights. Your well behaved dogs are welcome but please add under extras the $25 additional cleaning fee. If they are don’t leave hair everywhere I will refund it.

“The Spruce” mini lake cabin
I hate leaving this review because I don't want to spoil this for others by letting the world know about this place and its owner. Absolutely amazing. Beyond words. My Wife looked at me one day on the porch swing and said "you did good". Highest praise out there. It's a piece of heaven on earth and John is an amazing host with just the right amount of communication to make you comfortable without feeling managed. Can't say enough about the weekend but would love to do this on a regular basis. Thank you John for making our Memorial day memorable.

Just go!
If you're scared of bugs this is not the place. If you're scared to camp alone this is the perfect place to find your bravery. The Spruce is safe and secure. If you're looking for a quiet location this is not the place, the frogs are looking for love all night long and you will hear their serenade until the sun comes up. If you want a real Texas experience on a working cattle ranch with a real life handsome cowboy host... look no further. Loved every minute of my stay at the Spruce at J Haggard Lake. Just go!

Paradise, Texas
My husband and I were blessed to stay for an extended weekend at John's ranch in North Central Texas. The cabin had quite a few little touches, that you could definitely tell was a labor of love. We were able to hike some animal trails, fish at the creek, enjoy a nice sit-down meal at the gazebo, warm ourselves by the firepit on chilly night, and simply enjoy all that nature has to offer. As a bonus, we enjoyed watching the free range cows, horses, ect. at the ranch. We absolutely can't recommend it enough!
