We spent a long weekend in Pappy's Place. A total of eight people occupied the cabin with comfort for all. the owner's were extremely nice and very attentive to our needs. The interior was very clean and decorated tastefully with many nostalgic details that reminded me of times gone by. the exterior was in a high state of order. A variety of spaces to relax in, a plat area for little ones, a grill area and a nicely done fire pit. The property had ample parking to include room to park and maneuver my 29 ft pontoon. Two decks on the outside of the cottage were great for relaxing or storing coolers or cleaning/drying scuba gear. The adjacent pond had a sitting area with a swing that was great for having morning coffee or an evening cocktail. We look forward to returning one day and would highly recommend Pappy's Corner to anyone looking for a quiet getaway that's close to Lake Texoma.

Just got back from a weekend fishing trip with "The Boyz" and I must say that hanging out in the Texas House in-between the fishing made for an amazing trip. Beautiful craftmanship throughout and very spacious, both the breakfast casserole and cake that were provided were delicious as well. I thoroughly enjoyed laughing it up sitting around the fire pit at night. I can't wait for the next trip out here as I'm sure this will become an annual event from this point forward for me.

We stay at Pappy's several times every year over the summer. Comfortable, and a nice set up. Lot's of space for the family. Julie's home cooked cake and breakfast are great too.

The best way to celebrate or kick up your feet and enjoy Texas hospitality!! All the animates of home and some. In a rustic Texas hideaway that is guaranteed to let all your worries slip into the distant dust. Can't wait to revisit!!!

A darling cabin in the woods with all the touches of a real hunting and fishing home. The breakfast and brownies were awesome. We loved the pond & rustic feel. I highly recommend this piece of heaven.

What a great escape for our family! The cabin was cozy and the perfect fit for us! The kids loved playing checkers on the porch, exploring the grounds and fishing the pond. Can't wait to go again!

We decided we did NOT want to go tent camping yet with a 3yr & 5yr old, so we thought it would be a good fit to goto a cabin. We found Pappy's paradise online and thought "The Cabin" would be a perfect fit for our family of 4. It was!! The kids absolutely loved it...they loved sleeping in the loft, roasting hot dogs & making smores in the fire pit out front, walking around the area, and sitting in the porch swing. It was nice having the at-home ammenities while 'roughing it' (I know, this isn't truely roughing it, but a start when you have little ones). Wonderful weekend (2 night) getaway. The kids have been asking when they get to go back again. Oh, also a FANTASTIC price for the area.

Stayed in “Pappy’s Place” with our 4 yr old daughter. She had a blast playing with the ducks at the pond. There is a nice short nature trail on the property as well. Julie and Billy are wonderful hosts.

Beautiful cabin, very clean, rustic and yet with all the essentials. Very peaceful and quiet location truly made us feel so far from the city commotion. My kids are still raving about the "welcome" brownies!!

Our family of 4 staying in the rustic cabin in the woods. This is a great place to stay with children. The hosts are wonderful. Everything was perfect and a relaxing treat. The cabins have plenty of elbow room between them so you have plenty of privacy and room for the children to roam and explore.

Very family friendly- Lots of scenery and animals. Very down-home feel, however, beds are small and uncomfortable.

My son and I drove up from Houston to take my mom to Pappy's for her 83rd birthday. Her words: "This is the best birthday I've had!" You are welcomed as family, included as family, but treated with 5-star service. It is an escape from "the big city" in it's simplicity, peace, calm, and old-fashioned accomodations. It was the first vacation I've taken that I did NOT need a vacation to get over it! Billy and Julie, innkeepers, are true blessings from God! Theresa, Ryan and Anneliese Meredith

We stayed in The Cabin for one night, using the "Romance" package. The house was so quaint and picturesque, while still providing all of the necessary modern amenities. The steak dinner was wonderful, the hosts warm and pleasant, and the atmosphere quiet. We can't wait to bring our kids and friends to this lovely spot!

My family and I wanted a awesome weekend getaway and that is just what we got when we stayed in The Cottage. It was more than we expected with it's beautiful rooms and furnishings! Both Billy and Julie were so nice, and do a wonderful job of making us feel at home! The homemade cake and breakfast casserole Julie made us were both so delicious! The Cottage is a wonderful size with plenty of room for a family. From the ducks, the stocked pond, the paddle boat and pet goats, our three boys had a wonderful time!! As soon as we returned home I reccomended this B&B to all our friends and family!!

We met our daughter and family for a get-a-way and couldn't have been more pleased. Our 2 year old Grandson loved the duck pond and feeding the gentle goats and Midget their horse. The cottage was so cozy and the Veir's made our stay very relaxing and enjoyable! We hope to return soon for another stay.Jerry and Joy Tilton Rogers, AR.

Just returned from our 3rd visit to Pappy's! The kids and adults are never ready to leave. We are so grateful to have such a warm, roomy and friendly home away from home. Our family enjoys the farm animals, paddleboat, nature trail and endless hours of outdoor play. They also have a more secluded cabin that is spectacular. So whether you looking for a family or couples vacation, this is the place to go. But one thing, we always leave something behind...great memories!
