Lake Ray Roberts was still filling up. There were hardly any large horse farms surrounding us when we moved from Dallas to get away from the cement jungle to enjoy our little slice of heaven. Slowly, unfortunately, ever so surely, the big fancy horse farms and city people with bulldozers became our neighbors. As all the surrounding properties lost its trees to make room for big houses with big gates out front we hung on tight to our little seven wooded acres which had become refuge for the wildlife being pushed off the property they once called home.
Until Lynn became disabled the red A-frame Cabin was used as her office and we converted the barn into our house which is behind the privacy fence from the Cabin. Shortly before January 1, 2016 one of our backdoor neighbors who is a professional fisherman said: "I guarantee it, if you will rent that Cabin out to fisherman it will stay booked solid." So, we set out to become the best kept secret in the fishing world - the best place for fishermen to stay. Just like those fishing holes that you don't want anyone else to find out about, sure enough word spread and the secret was out. The fisherman that had stayed while fishing tournaments told their friends and family about the Cabin and before long we had families staying for vacations, bachelorettes having parties, parents throwing birthday parties for their kids, girl's night out, anniversaries, after prom parties, romantic getaways, executive travelers, extended stays, and yes, still those fisherman. In 2018 we added the Copper Can for couples only. Now, we have guests booking their stay a year in advance just to make sure they get to stay on the date they desire.
Considered the poor stepchild of the area, no advertisement out front, no big fancy gate, if you aren't looking for us you'll never find us. Isn't it time you came home to your little red Cabin and its sidekick the Copper Can where memories are made? See you soon whatever the case may be. Let us spoil you. We'll make it ready just for you and yours.
