Description of the Weatherford vacation guesthouse rental
The Retreat is for those seeking the ambience of a hotel while experiencing the privacy of a family home. The Retreat offers up a quiet, secluded, romantic, even spiritual setting. Guests leave The Retreat confirming that their stay was relaxing, renewing, and celebratory.

Only one party stays at The Retreat at a time. Three well appointed bedrooms with luxury linens, two hideaway beds, and 3.5 baths accommodate up to ten guests.

The kitchen and living areas are fully equipped and suitable for gatherings of two to a full family reunion. A large screen tv and wireless internet allow for access to the outdoor world...only if you must!

Trellised decks, outdoor grill, courtyard and water fountain, pool and spa, and a canopy of trees await peaceful and reflective outdoor time.

Families with small children will find The Retreat a difficult place to fully relax. There are two open stairwells inside the house and there is no enclosure around the pool. For these reasons regrettably families with small children are discouraged.

Fabulously relaxing!!!!

September 3, 2011

I just left traveled from Louisiana to hot springs for a birthday celebration. We stayed here for two nights. I must say, the pictures do not do this retreat justice!! It is a beautiful home and property. Beautifully decorated, but still felt like a home. I felt completely comfortable there, like it was a friend's home I was staying at. I cooked a lot....grilled, fried, baked, ect. They had everything I needed. The master bedroom and bath are just dreamy! All your linens are provided which is another plus, even beach towels! The deck was huge and had a large table, where we ate both nights. The game room downstairs was also a plus, but my favorite feature was the sound system. Speakers were hooked up outside also, so u just plugged in your iPhone and could listen to music while sitting on deck or down at the dock. The ice machine was also very convenient. We swam at the dock every evening after we got off the lake. The lake water was so clean and the dock was also. There was nothing I would have changed about this place! There were six adults ranging in age of 25 to 32, we fit in the house easily and weren't stepping on each other's toes constantly. It is a beautiful property and hope to return soon. The only thing that I wished would have been different was being able to rent the jet skis and boat they had. That would be an even bigger bonus to renting this property. Thanks so much Jackie, your house was perfect!

My family loved this awesome secluded home at Clark Gardens near Mineral Wells. The short walk to the Gardens, the pool and hot tub, the unbeliveable space was just what a family needs to get away and relax. All the amenities were provided for cooking and the recreation was outstanding. I will asure you, we will be back!!! Also, pet friendly!!
