With 2 private bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a shared living space, this vacation rental cottage invites 8 to explore the city of Whitesboro and Lake Texoma - only 10 miles away! THE PROPERTY Bedroom 1 (Oak ): 2 Queen Beds | Bedroom 2 (Cypress): 2 Queen Beds Peaceful ponds and fields that extend for miles set the tone for your serene Southwest escape at ‘Rancho Sereno.’ Feel free to hike around the 80-acre wildlife preserve to get the lay of the land or watch for visiting deer from your private patio nestled under a vine-wrapped pergola. Make yourself at home in the Pine Room, featuring a fully equipped kitchen and professionally designed living area. Eclectic contemporary-style furnishings and canvas horse paintings coupled with a full wall of windows bring the natural elements of the property’s countryside setting indoors. When you’re not out visiting the horse farm, fishing on Lake Texoma or enjoying a wine tasting, relax in front of the flat-screen satellite TV or fuel up with a homemade meal in the kitchen, complete with state-of-the-art appliances and a custom-build island. Come nighttime, the 2 bedrooms afford the whole group plenty of peace and privacy for a good night’s sleep. Both rooms are well-appointed with 2 queen beds, satellite TV's and pristine bathrooms. Each bedroom also offers a private balcony overlooking a pond and meadow. Rise and shine with a fresh cup of coffee and picture-perfect views of ‘Rancho Sereno’ from either one of these peaceful outdoor spaces! THE LOCATION Located on an 80-acre horse breeding farm, this cottage invites horse lovers and nature enthusiasts to experience the best of the Great Southwest’s Cross Timbers region! Close to countless opportunities in the scenic Red River Valley and the booming DFW metroplex, this property offers a prime location for all types of activities. Drive 10 miles south into the city of Whitesboro, the country’s epicenter of reining horse breeding, or drive 10 miles north to explore the abundant adventures of Lake Texoma. A field trip west brings you to the Blue Ostrich Winery, a beautiful vineyard with charming tasting rooms, a wide selection of wines and actual ostriches roaming the property! For those willing to take a longer drive, the bustling DFW metroplex is an hour away. Make a trip into downtown Dallas for a day of museum visits and gourmet dining or head into the city of Arlington for thrilling rides at Six Flax or sporting events at the AT&T Stadium.
