The vibe at Taylor Pines
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Taylor Pines is located just a short drive from Interstate 40. Our host, Susie, had a friend meet us out at the property. He was waiting for us in the driveway when we arrived and led us back to the property. The road back to the property isn’t really a road - there were tire tracks to mark the way and the path was flat but the grass is overgrown and makes it hard to see what you’re driving over. We unfortunately we dinged up the bottom of our new van on some rocks and sticks. The plastic is currently hanging off the bottom of the undercarriage. If you’re going there in a car, drive slow and keep your eyes peeled. Even better would be a truck with a little bit more clearance.
The property itself is pretty with a little cabin that sits back about 50 feet from a small lake. The little front porch gives you a really nice view of the water. Though we visited in winter when parts of it were frozen, it isn’t hard to imagine it in spring and summer when the trees are leafed out and beautiful. It’s private and secluded and we think it’d be the perfect little getaway. There’s even a little metal boat down by the water’s edge!
As for the cabin, the inside isn’t quite ready to go (it looks like it’s being used for storage) but Susie’s friend said she’s thinking about allowing people to stay in there. There isn’t a bathroom in the cabin but he said she was considering adding air conditioning and heat. Even without cabin access, there are plenty of tent sites to choose from and even a fire pit to hang out around. Seems like a fun place and we’d definitely give it a try in warmer weather.
We loved our stay here so much. It was very muddy to the cabin due to days of rain so Susie let us stay in her barn apartment which was honestly a better fit for us as a family of 4 and a dog! She was so very nice and we felt very safe on her land .
Susie was very helpful in getting me to the location and once I arrived
got me settled in the middle of the most majestic piece of property by the lake with the trees
I was so appreciative for friendly face and a welcome
and I love scout
