We loved Mark’s property! It’s well kept and full
of pleasant surprises!
The only regret is we only spent a day there.

Mark provided an incredibly beautiful area and a cabin that would be ideal for any group who is looking to go out and enjoy nature without sacrificing amenities. The land the cabin is located on is vast, beautiful, and diverse. Just outside is a beautiful pond with multiple access points to enjoy the view. And let's not forget that there's an island in the middle of the pond that you can access. Additionally, there was plenty of open space. In regards to the cabin, it was fully stocked with everything we needed. The entire cabin was also spotless when we arrived, not to mention how it has its own charm and fun decor.

I hope to one day come back when the opportunity arises.

Great little spot outside Huntsville and close enough to state park for day access. We enjoyed the cabin and pitched a tent for the kids to try the outdoors. Would come back again.

We had a great weekend getaway!

The cabin: pretty spacious and had everything we needed for a weekend getaway. No WIFI but LTE was full bar.
Surroundings: large & private property, next to a lake w/ island that's protected by two geese; Canoe, fireplace, viewing deck, and stargazing!
The host: Mark was very kind and responsive.
Location: only 90 mins drive from Houston, nearest city Huntsville is only 10 miles away!
