Great little Cottage. Grandkids and their Daddy went with us. Had a ball! Vic, the owner was very accommodating and full of information about the history of this turn of the century home. Didnt even miss cable TV! Kids caught fish from the stocked pond. Saw deer up close and some curious cows. Would go again. (Second bedroom is up some fairly steep steps, so keep that in mind if taking little children or elderly folks, but worked great for us!

A really special find just off the beaten path...It so rare these days to actually be getting so much more than your moneys worth. What a beautiful place to rest, relax and get away from it all while at the same time be just minutes away from everything you could possibly need. I especially enjoyed the morning with a fresh pot of coffee (Supplied by the proprietor) while looking out on the lake from the porch just outside the master bedroom. Being in the art collection and publishing of art books I especially appreciated the careful attention to detail in the craftsmanship apparent in the restoration of this unique and more than comfortable cottage. The same attention to detail went into the selection of furnishings and art tastefully placed in just the right place. When you stay at the cottage you feel welcomed right away because the atmosphere created makes you feel right at home as soon as you walk in the door. Vic the proprietor is clearly a hands on owner but knows that the best service is to everything you need attended to before you arrive so there is no need to spend time with him or anything else other than the reason you chose to stay at the cottage. I will be back visiting Mineola soon and I know exactly where I will be staying. ..The Cottage at Homestead Farms.

The Cottage at Homestead Farms is a beautiful rental full of charm from the past! By far the most relaxing rental I have been to in quite a while. Your first glimpse into the cottage is the cheerful kitchen that takes you back to grandma's house. The hardwood floors are beautiful throughout the cottage. The screen porch off the downstairs bedroom is a great place to spend the morning, even during the Texas summer. Vic is a very attentive proprietor checking in via email to ensure your stay is as pleasant as possible. If you are looking for a place to slip away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life, The Cottage at Homestead Farms is the place for you! Don't forget to include breakfast with your reservations.

We're so pleased that you enjoyed the Cottage with your family! We stocked the catfish last year and they have really grown since then. I enjoyed visiting with your family on Saturday and talking Texas music with your Dad! Had I known that you would be cooking for such a large group I certainly would have put some big pots and pans in there! (I have since put a large pot over there just in case other guests need one) Thanks again for staying with us and for your review!
