An amazing way to begin the New Year!! Everything was perfect – peace and quiet, the best breakfast imaginable, awesome hospitality. We can’t wait to come back!

Charlotte and Tim - Gilmer, TX

We were here on New Year’s Eve night. Michelle checked us in and was extremely friendly; she brought us to our cabin herself and explained everything – very good service. The room is beautiful and clean and the bed is very comfortable. We loved the homemade Chocolate waiting for us – it was delicious! Loved the full length mirror in the bathroom, the tea selection, and the option to plug in our iphones to play music. Also, loved lighting a fire in the chiminea at night. Los Pinos Winery is conveniently right up the road, also a plus. Love the view from our porch and were pleasantly surprised to find champagne and orange juice for us to bring in the New Year. Overall, great place and great experience. We’ll be back. Breakfast was awesome!

Angela and Mat - Ft. Worth

We really needed to get away from jobs, responsibilities, and phones. Couldn’t have found a better way. Michelle’s breakfasts coaxed us out of the wonderful bed. Hash-brown crusted quiche is especially yummy. The recommendation for dinner at Los Pinos Winery was on target. Smooth jazz, gourmet food & great wine! Try the wine flight if you don’t know exactly what you want. We plan a return engagement to our lovely cottage with all of your charming touches, Michelle. Thanks for a calming two days- just what we needed.

Chuck and Shari - Ft. Worth

What a spectacular find this place is. We could not have been more fortunate to find such a quaint cottage for a weekend getaway. The hospitality was way beyond superb. Los Pinos for dinner and entertainment is a must. Breakfast in bed in the morning, made it even better. We will definitely return.

Tracy and Wes - Tyler

We stayed here for our 1rst anniversary. Everything has been fantastic. Michelle is an exceptional hostess. Her culinary skills are deserving of 5 STARS! Our favorite part was laying in the hammock underneath the stars, we could have slept there all night. P.S. My husband will take me away kicking and screaming!

Heath and Christina - Gilmer, TX

This is the perfect peaceful setting and the ammenities from the Mermaid tranquility fountain to the lavender touches relaxed me entirely. The bed was so comfortable, the breakfast was so delicious and siiting on the front porch in the comfy robe this morning made me wish my stay could be longer! I’ll be back!

Katherine - Longview, TX

What a great way to spend our 19th anniversary! We had a great time!!

Ben and Josie - Henderson, TX

No detail goes unnoticed. We so appreciate you decor – everything that made this a relaxing get-a-way. Amazing how just an overnight stay can refresh with all the elements of a comfortable pampered surrounding. We feel so close to nature, but not lacking any modern convienance just ‘ahhh restful’ exactly what we needed. Thank you so much for making us feel special, catoring to special requests and making the start of my birthday memorable or making it very easy for my husband to build on the memory of the Lavender Mermaid.

Greg and Lisa - Arlington, TX

We absolutely loved our stay..awesome cabin; loved the bed,spa quality shower and toiletries! So calm and relaxing. The 1rst place I have found since coming from Colorado that made me say: I’ll be back! And the gourmet breakfast was wonderful! Brought hot to our door! I especially loved the great fresh ground coffee, real cream was yummy. All the comforts of the big hotels but so quiet and relaxing. Fresh flowers, homemade truffles! An oasis in the countryside. Very surprising find. Should share with others, but… P.S. Michelle thought of everything.

Pat and Tom - Colorado Springs

What a perfectly lovely experience – every detail was thoughtfully considered. We so enjoyed our private porch looking out at the setting crescent moon with the night sounds, then sitting outside again with our morning tea watching and listening to the birds. thank you, we had a wonderful time. Great bed too! Very comfortable! A special spot on earth! Nice energy, your spirits are evident in all the delicate details inside and out. It is all Beautiful!

Gary and Daphne - Pine Mills, TX

You are tucked back in a little bit of heaven! This is a great property and very cozy. The bed was very comfy – we had a great night’s rest! Breakfast smells yummy! Tasted wonderful! Fantastic breakfast on the porch. Thank you for your gracious hospitality.

Thank you so much for your hospitality!! This was a special getaway for our shared birthday and it was wonderful!! We will definitely be back AND we’ll be telling all our friends! The winery was great, but your breakfast was AMAZING!! Thank you so much!

Brian and Amanda - Benton, LA

Paradise for a writer. Thank you both for the healing solitude of the Lavender Mermaid! I don’t know which I enjoyed most: sitting on the porchin the evening(birds!rabbits!sunset!), the quiet, the comfy bed, yummy breakfast or the to-die-for truffles! Big sigh! Guess it has to be the truffles. Thanks so much.

Karen - San Antonio, Texas

My wife kidnapped me to get away for a quiet, stress free weekend. She had it all planned, we got exactly what we needed for a night by ourselves. The cottage was very clean. The bed was awesome! Breakfast was fantastic. We will tell everyone we know about this place. Thank you for a peaceful night’s sleep.

William and Vickie - Hallisville, Texas

As magical as a Lavender Mermaid, one glance and it’s obvious Michelle thought of all the magical touches here. Providing exactly what busy people need – the Lavender Mermaid Farm will nurture your spirit, stomach and sound sleep.We will remember our stay for a very long time.

Carl and Nancy - Porter, TX

This is an incredible gem that we found in East Texas…truly a great escape from the hectic pace of every day life. No detail left undone…from the great hand-made chocolates to the gourmet breakfast straight out of what tasted like Bon Appetit magazine! We appreciate the relaxing suuroundings at night and even saw a coyote! Thank you for your outstanding hospitality and hope to be back!

Laura and Brian - Bossier City, LA

What a great way to celebrate our 36th anniversary! Peaceful, relaxing and the food was wonderful. The added gift of chocolate lavender truffles and sparkling wine was a sweet add and a heartful touch that was greatly appreciated. We will tell our friends and family all about your little piece of heaven here. God bless you on this adventure and we can’t wait to see the pine trees all grown up.
