All expectations were met and then some for a relaxing holiday. Outstanding accommodations in a beautiful private location get away, yet still close enough to area towns and activities. Our breakfast goodies were plentiful and the crumb cake was delicious! The owner and host was very helpful and made our stay a delightful one. We recommend highly and hope to return again.

Cabin appeared clean & neat.However, we found a used bath towel hanging on the bathroom door & partial shampoo bottles in the tub, calling into question all aspects of cleanliness. Also, the hot water had a strong sulfur/sewer gas smell - enough to notice in another room when hot water was used. The "Dinner Package" for $70 was to include an entree "made from fresh ingredients and stored in the freezer" for us to reheat, a salad & dessert, plus a bottle of Merlot or Chardonnay (our choice). We received a Marie Callendar's frozen lasagna, frozen Texas toast, frozen dessert, a bag of pre-cut-lettuce and a few vegetables to make our own salad. In the bowl with the salad items we found a paper clip(?). The meal tray was in the refrigerator & thawed before we were to eat it. Two of the items had instructions not to thaw prior to cooking/eating. The wine was not bad, but was Pinot Grigio (neither of the choices offered). Breakfast was a tray of fruit, muffins & some eggs we could cook. It was sufficient for our first morning, and we received no indication it would need to last for two mornings. In fact, other indications (volume of milk, OJ and coffee grounds provided) were that more would certainly be delivered for morning two. No more breakfast arrived during our stay. We stay in bed and breakfast places about 12-15 days a year, and have enjoyed nearly all of them. This was easily the most disappointing stay we have ever had. The potential is definitely there to make for a good experience, but Fox Meadows appears to be run with a greater interest in making it cheap and easy to administer than in providing a positive guest experience. We do not recommend this B&B unless they come closer to fulfilling their potential than what we experienced.

This review was a surprise. We have been in business for ten years and have never had a bad review. We have many previous excellent reviews from several newspapers in Texas including, Dallas, Houston, and Austin and 79 wonderful reviews from BedandBreakfast.com dating back to 2007. The greatest disappointment for me is that these guests never told us they were unhappy while they were here. We would have done everything possible to help them resolve their problems including moving them or refunding them money. The oversights by our cleaning staff are mistakes and should not have happened. I can assure you our houses are clean and many other guests report this in their reviews. The hot water heaters are six months old and I have had no complaints from anyone before or after their stay. I have checked them and found nothing. We do not have a central eating area with a chef and our guests love it that way. The optional dinner package is put in the refrigerator in a large basket in the AM of the day of arrival. We are happy to accommodate our guest’s preferred day. We paper clip the house location and any special instruction to the basket. One fell in the basket in transit and this is not acceptable. We make every effort to not disturb our guests and our breakfasts baskets are purposely large enough for 2 people for 2 days. They consist of homemade coffee cake, cinnamon rolls, and muffins, plus a huge basket of fresh fruit, eggs, orange juice and milk. We have dry cereal and oatmeal in the cabins also. We are happy to provide more food if we are asked to do so. We are sorry that these guests had a bad stay. We would have been happy to rectify any problems immediately had we know. Fox Meadow is not a traditional bed and breakfast. You stay in a house not a room and enjoy 55 acres with hiking trails, a fishing lake, wildlife and solitude. Many guests have returned numerous times to enjoy the peace, the beauty of nature, and the sound of silence that is Fox Meadows.

We stayed at Fox Meadows celebrating our 9th Anniversary this past weekend November 1-3, 2013. Upon arrival the owner Craig gave us some background on the property and a short tour of the cabin - we stayed in #3 Emma's house. The grounds are gorgeous and the cabin was extremely clean and had everything you need for a weekend stay! The bed was comfortable and we really enjoyed the fireplace. The pastry's and the fruit were delicious! We had a Lemon Poppyseed muffin and another one that was like cinnamon roll in the form of a loaf. Yummy! I do have one criticism about the website, it is a little deceiving showing a picture of the one house and saying that there are 4 Guest homes and they are new and identical in architectural design. There are actually 2 houses - Emma's and Anna's house - each have 2 Suites with a a dog run between them sharing the same roof, porch and back patio. Maybe each side of the cabin should be called a "Suite" - Living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. The only reason I am pointing this out is because we prefer privacy and I was under the impression that we were staying in the house in the picture by ourselves. Thankfully, Craig made sure that the #4 Suite was not occupied during our stay because he knew we were celebrating our anniversary. That was very thoughtful and we appreciate being able to have the isolation that we intended for this weekend. Overall we loved loved loved Fox Meadows and have even thought about bringing our family for a weekend getaway - the kids would love the trails!

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Fox Meadows. We love the seclusion of the location. Even in the heat, we were able to enjoy some outside time walking the trails and fishing.

This was a nice stay on our ride near Corsicana. The room was really nice, but since we only stayed one night we paid a bit more than we thought it was worth. The breakfast in the refrigerator was nice and the A/C a welcome rest from the Texas heat. The directions on the website made it easy to find and our Garmin followed them perfectly. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Absolutely beautiful grounds with lots of room to roam and explore, including lots of wildlife to view and a catch and release stock tank. Close enough to Palestine to go for the afternoon or to any of the other nearby attractions (but we were happy to just hang out at the cabin!). Stargazing was also amazing! Cabins were very nice and very clean, ample room, fully stocked kitchen, lots of nice touches. If you're looking for peaceful and relaxing, this is the place!

Fox Meadows is a wildlife preserve and is natural and pristine. There is utter peace and quiet. The lodgings are very attractive and rustic and well kept and clean. The host is very gracious. Hiking trails are great and wildlife abundant. It is a long way to dining so I would suggest you bring most of your food with you. Nice fishing pond for catch and release. The homebaked coffee cake is terrific. Rest of breakfast is adequate but could be improved. Would be ideal for family getaways as the cabins include adjoining accomodations. Would definitely return

We went for a quick two day stay at Fox Meadows for our first visit. It was very relaxing and comfortable. They provided everything to make our stay perfect. We loved the birdfeeder outside our window with supplied us with ample bird watching. There are only two guest houses but they are split to accommodate two families per house. They are separated by a nice breezeway. So people traffic was minimal. Very quiet! We cooked most of our meals but ate dinner in Athens and Palestine which was a quick drive. We will definitely come again.

We opened the cabin and everyone said "OH WOW". That's a great opener and that's the way it ended! The Breakfast was more than ample, with homemade Pumpkin Bread, juice, milk, eggs, fruit, butter. We met with friends, bbq'd steak and chicken, watched lovely lavendar sunsets and golden sunrises. Built a fire in the fireplace, enjoyed migrating geese on the lake...and the nature trails and bucks. Just a lovely time.

We went for peace and relaxation - got it! The extra benefit of having dinner available was a welcome plus. So glad we took advantage of it. After riding the motorcycle 4 hours to get there it was nice that we didn't have to go back out to find someplace for dinner. It was very good and a lot of it too. The cabin was spacious and comfortable. The only thing we missed was a small table for breakfast and dinner. There was plenty of bar space with stools but not quite the relaxing place for dinner. Plenty of tables and seating areas outside but it was too chilly at the time of our visit in October. Over all a wonderful stay and we wish it could have been longer. Donna

This is our second time to stay at Fox Meadows and if anything, we loved it more than our first time. The property provides a serenity that is so hard to find in our busy lives and it was just the perfect place to relax and enjoy each other's company.

We spent four extremely relaxing days at Fox Meadows. If you are looking for solitude and a place to relax, this is for you. Be warned that your cell phone may not work here and there isn't internet connections. This caught us off-guard as we do have a business that needed some support while we were gone. Also, we packed all our own food but cooking was a bit of a challenge due to limited pots and pans but we made it work. Next time we will bring our own large pots and mixing bowls. Because there are so many places I want to see, I rarely go back to the same place. However, we may make an exception for Fox Meadows because of how thoughtfully it was designed.

After a very HECTIC time in my career transition, I escaped to Fox Meadows. For several glorious weeks I 'marinated' in star gazing, listening to the QUIET, prayerful reflection and staring into a blazing hearth.

We went to Palastine to ride the Steam Train, and really hadn't thought so much about accommodations. We chose Fox Meadows with very little information up front. We had a 6 yer old with us, and were a little worried about taking him to a bed and breakfast. It pleasantly surprised us in every way. We enjoyed the walking trails, laid out with reference numbers so we could learn about the local flora. We fished in the pond, and although we didn't catch anything, we were there more for fun than serous fishing. We enjoyed the chairs on the porch, we we sat and enjoyed the cardinals flying in and out of the bushes. The prepared dinner that we had requested was waiting for us, ready to go, letting us enjoy a quiet family meal on our own schedule. The next morning, the breakfast was ample. The rooms were big, everything you needed was there, and it was quiet. The guest quarters, in separate buildings, don't share any walls with other guests, so you don't hear anything but the birds. Craig was kind enough to ail me my favorite baseball hat, which I had inadvertently left behind. What a great opportunity to slow down, away from distractions, and focus on family, nature and the little things that make life enjoyable. Simply put, the place was perfect.

We had a wonderful escape from the hustle of the city. I took my mother and two sons (8 and 10 years old) for two nights at Fox Meadows B&B. Each morning we took a morning hike through the trails and saw many interesting birds and foliage. In the afternoons we explored the local communities and the late afternoons and early evenings were spent relaxing in the rockers on the front porch. A great time was had by all.

Jane and Craig have done an exceptional job of providing homes for others, like us, to enjoy nature at its best on their 55-acre estate in the heart of northeast Texas woodlands' rolling hills. If you are blessed to stay in one of their units, you will be amazed at the freedom and comfort you will experience in this quiet, peaceful nature preserve. The Foxes go out of their way to assure that you feel at home, providing far more than one would expect in extras, among a few of these are books, outside grills, picnic tables, sitting areas (including rocking chairs), fresh fruit and home-baked gourmet breads. But if you need hustle & bustle and bright city lights, you will not find them here; you will, however, find charm and a variety of activities/restaurants with excellent food in nearby Palestine and Rusk. We will go back

A refreshing get away from it all...you get so much more than a regular B&B, more space, more privacy, more to explore.

This was a wonderful mini-vacation for us. Well worth the drive from Houston, even at $4 a gallon gasoline. The peaceful, quiet evenings...with enjoyable night sounds and soothing breezes was beyond our expectation. Fishing at the lake has renewed an old pleasure for my husband and a new experience for me. What fun! The dog-trot design of the house brought back memories of old family who actually lived in an original one in East Texas. One of the nicest features is that we were able to share our vacation time with our best friends, who had the house opposite ours, right across the breezeway....together but separate! We will definately be back, probably in the fall to enjoy the cooler weather and the autumn foliage on the many different trees. Thanks, Jane and Craig Fox for a marvelous time.

Owner, Jane Fox was a delight! Rescued us after we locked ourselves out, and took wonderful care of us! Not intrusive like some b&b's!

Fox Meadows has pretty and thoughtfully laid out rooms, with all sorts of sweet extras. They are on a nature preserve, and have a vulture family nesting there. The owners are nice. My only complaint would be that they are somewhat new age- from a reincarnation quote on the bedroom wall to the choice of books in the rooms. For many people this won't matter, but it did make us feel a little uncomfortable.

Our stay at Fox Meadows was especially nice because it was scenic and private. we enjoyed our peaceful quite/stay for our honeymoon and do plan to spend our anniversary at Fox Meadows.
