    We loved our stay here. You cannot count the good things about this cabin on fingers of your both hands. As everybody has amazed at, porch is amazing. There is literally everything you need to stay. Paddle boat. Canoe. Life jackets. Double grill. We mostly used gas one. Cows grazing next to you. Amazing price. I would give it 99.9% which is hard to find at other places. Overall, we had the best time of our lives.

    We had a great time staying here. The pond was loaded with fish and there were two boats we made use of on the property. The view was beautiful and having the cattle come close to the cabin was actually really cool. I would definitely stay here again if I visit Texas in the future. Overall very pleased with our stay!

Quiet and all the amenities you could need Leigha does a great job of answering any questions that might come up for the property. The pond out back is a nice place to sit and practice throwing my hook :) The convenience is super nice. I cannot say enough nice things.

    The property is perfect! I hate to tell anyone you might get my future dates! It was perfect for me. The cabin is super roomy and would easily accommodate a large party. Clean and easy to follow the cleanup rules. They provide some fishing poles too! The fishing pond out back was perfect for me as well. Getting to dip a hook in a safe restful place was awesome! I could sit at the firepit, drink coffee and throw my hook into the water. Its easy to walk around and fish the different parts. It is next to a highway 19 and not far from Canton (shopping) or Athens ... but honestly the highway was not a huge deal to me at all. Leigha is a perfect hostess and had answers for anything and everything I needed. I plan on returning for more me time! Or that girls trip we have all talked about for over a year now Thanks Covid... here's to better times! 😉🙏🙏

    My son and I spent 6 nights at the Cattlemen's Cabin while hunting locally there. The necessary provisions (Wally's, gas, ice, etc) were within 10 miles either direction on hwy 19 which was handy. The property itself was outstanding setting wise, and downtime was spent reading next to lake or pulling fish out of it. Lastly, the folks that own and manage this property are typical Texas folk from what I could gather, honest and hardworking - it showed in the furnishings as well as in all correspondence with them. We will be back as this was the 'perfect' place to spend time with loved ones. Thank you

    It was very clean they had everything the only thing we had to bring was food like breakfast and dinner. They had coffee the creamers the sugar all the seasonings you could need for your food. The pillow and blankets were comfortable. This is a must to get your kids away from the technology as well and the city. My 4 and 5 year old fished all day! They are pros now lol. They had fishing poles and tackle out there as well as life jackets for as young as my 4 year old who weighs 30 pounds. They have a canoe and a paddleboat. There's alot of bass, we caught i think 5 but they're tricky on when to catch we threw them back in because, we dont eat bass but it was fun. I love being away from the city having all the land its quiet its peaceful you got the pond you got cows what more do you need? I highly recommend this place.

    My wife and I found this property to be charming. Everything that was needed was supplied. In the overall rating, we would give it a 4.5. It did not get a 5 because it took awhile to get the living room cool due to only one window unit in the bedroom and the area in front of the pond was very muddy. The owners were very nice. We will stay there again in the near future. Final tally: 25 catfish, 3 bass, 2 croppie.

    Thanksgiving & 5-Year Anniversary Getaway

    5/5 Stayed Nov 22, 2018
    Submitted Dec 11, 2018

    We were here celebrating our annual Thanksgiving weekend getaway, and this year, celebrating our 5-year wedding anniversary. The cabin and location were great for what we always look for in a getaway location - privacy, peacefulness, relaxing, with some fun things to do. The weather was overall great that weekend, and we actually spent most of the time there outside (which rarely happens). We did not have phone service (we're with T-Mobile) or internet while there, which further allowed us to totally 'get away'. We needed to get away, unwind, recharge, relax, and discuss the upcoming year, and the cabin gracefully allowed us to do all of those things. It was so nice to be able to sit on the deck, or on the bank of the pond, and just enjoy the view. We were looking forward to 're-igniting' our fishing hobby, at least for the weekend. We wasted no time, and within an hour of arriving, had our rods in the water. We caught a few catfish that day and caught another handful at various times by the time we left on Sunday. They were all about a pound, so not eating size, but nonetheless fun to catch. I was able to catch a few largemouth bass over the weekend as well. All were about a pound. The best spots were around the fallen trees on the opposite side of the pond. We were hoping to see the cows that other guests had reported. Disappointingly, only 3 came by one of the days we were there. We did get a visit one night from an armadillo, however. The cabin itself was very nice to stay in. The heating was sufficient for the weather. The kitchen was very well furnished, and had pretty much everything you would need. We grilled a lot, so we didn't need to use any of it. We enjoyed using the fire pit every night. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, and we hated to leave. We will definitely consider it for future getaways.

    My husband and I needed a good getaway weekend and found a wonderful spot at Cattleman's Cabin. Leigha met us when we arrived for a friendly walk through of the property and offered recommendations for the area. We felt very welcome! The property was just right for us, comfortable inside with everything we needed, and we especially enjoyed the wrap around porch which overlooked the acreage and great view of the pond. In the evening the cattle would come by, quietly munching away and in the morning we sat out on the porch with our coffee and enjoyed the view. You'll find refreshment and a lovely time here! Try Easley's Cattle Company (Canton) for casual and extremely good food and The Forge (Ben Wheeler) also casual and good food with evening live music. There's always time for antiquing in Canton, which is very close by. Highly recommend this property!

    By far our best find yet! Everything was above and beyond what we expected, the graciousness of the owners to provide much much more than they needed to was very impressive. The property manager's hospitality was extremely wonderful, she offered to bring more wood for our night time fires by the water and anything else we may need with a simple text. I don't think I can put into words just how great this entire weekend was, I can't express enough that it's truly the owners & property managers that made this place as wonderful as it is.

    My wife and I spent a fantastic weekend at this relaxing peaceful place for our 16th anniversary. The cabin was much nicer than we expected. Bigger too. It had plenty of unique features such as the wine barrel table and lonestar rug. We got a little reading in while sitting in the lounge chairs on the huge wrap around porch deck over looking our own private lake. We were able to enjoy the many amenities such as fishing (we each caught a nice size one), canoeing, walking some of the pastures, and to top off the evening, we ate smores at the firepit by the lake as the sun went down. I even found a boomerang, but didn't really know how to throw it as it kept coming back to me :-) The convenience of being so close in location to everything along with great restaurants was a real draw. 10 minutes to Canton and about that to Athens and Ben Wheeler. We were welcomed by Leigha who was very helpful showing us where everything was at. They had provided everything we needed such as dishes, towels, and a good amount of food stuffs, wood for the fire pit, fishing poles and tackle, and life jackets. They even gave us a nice package of yummy smores items and an Inspirational Book written by one of the owners. In all, it was about the perfect weekend. When my wife says I hit a home run, I guess I did alright. The price was amazing as I expected much less than what we got as everything was first class and better than described. We will definately return!

Can't wait to come again in the summer to enjoy the lake with fishing, paddle boat, canoe, watching nature, etc. The hostess was tremendous, being so friendly and gave us so much information. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!!

    It was a very enjoyable time staying at your cabin. The location was very convenient and easy drive to Canton and to I 20. The cabin is set up with every available item anyone would need. We loved the privacy of being there and the awesome calmness of the inside and the wrap around porch and the general area of the cabin with the water nearby. The one drawback for us was the sleeping arrangement. We worked that out but it is not the most comfortable for two couples. Everything else overshadowed the sleeping so we would recommend this place to anyone who loves peace and quite. Thank you for the time we got to spend at your awesome cabin.

    It has been such a long time that i have simply been at a loss for words when it comes to traveling. The property was perfect, quiet, and was exactly what I needed to get recharged. From size of the cabin, pond, and amenities, everything was what I hoped for and then some. I couldn't believe how sad I was to leave, but i am certainly looking forward to visiting again soon as I can.

    This property was well maintained and provided my wife and I a great getaway for our 24th anniversary. The cabin was well kept, clean and nicely decorated. The wrap around porch was a great bonus. we spent most of our time on the porch enjoying the weather. The private lake seems to have been stocked in the last year and a half or there was a population explosion as I caught about 13 Black bass that were about 8-9 inches in length. But I also caught about a 2 1/2 lb Black bass, a yellow cat about 14 inches in length and a Barn door Crappie. I did release tose so others could enjoy catching them. We also were pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen stocked with needed items that you might otherwise forget. wWe look forward to our next stay out there.

    My husband and I stayed for the weekend just to get away from distractions and spend time together. The Cattleman's Cabin was perfect! Beautiful scenery, wrap around porch with plenty of space to grill, play cards, and watch nature. A stone sidewalk leads you to the fire pit that sits directly in front of the large pond, complete with a fountain and nearby pier. Furniture was beautiful, house was spotless, kitchen well stocked, and the whole cabin smelled wonderful! For First Monday visitors, this is a PERFECT place and so affordable. It is very obvious that the owners put great care into making this home feel welcoming and an extension of their family. Would certainly come back!

    Pictures give this place no justice. So serene and peaceful. Truly enjoyed the Cattlemen's Cabin on SD Ranch and plan on making another trip in the future. The cattle that roam the property are very sweet along with many nature sightings, just sit on the huge wrap around porch and take it all in. The fire pit was a huge hit at night and the paddle boat was nice as well. The cabin was well stocked with all the essentials and the s'more gift was an additional treat. Minutes from Canton or Athens and convenient if you want to eat out or spend a day shopping antiques. Can't wait to book our next trip.

    SD Ranch is by far the best cabin we've stayed in. We enjoyed the lake so much. The scenery of the cattle, trees, and nature are just mesmerizing. The cabin itself is so neatly decorated with filled with love. The importance of family and especially the love of Christ is so evident in this place. My husband and I feel refreshed, reenergized and we feel His healing. We enjoyed fishing, sitting out by the fire pit and grilling. I personally enjoyed my alone time with God as I sat outside early in the mornings. I enjoyed reading and journaling as I saw and heard God's creation all around me. We are just so happy we were allowed to stay here. I don't believe it was by accident either. God designs everything for us. Lord willing we will be back. Thank you for your kind, sweet hospitality. Blessings!!

    The description that the property owner provides of this property is too modest. It has amenities that aren't mentioned including a dish TV station that has ALL old westerns playing 24/7. My group of 4 hunters was pleasantly surprised and aren't used to such cushy digs. It has rustic charm and simplicity while being clean and accommodating. I would bring my wife in a heart beat and I know my kids would enjoy exploring the back acres and pond. The owner and/or caretaker were available EVERY TIME I called or texted, whether it was for directions, making last minute changes or asking how to work the remote. Thanks!

    By far the neatest little cabin I've stayed at, and I've stayed at quite a few in Texas and Oklahoma. Perfect setting. No neighbors, fishing right outside your back door, and lots of nature to see.. Also, being a bit of a neat freak, I was pleasantly surprised with how clean and organized everything was. Will definitely be going back.

    It is a beautiful place inside and out just like the family that owns it! The Cabin pretty much has everything you could need. The family does a great job communicating with you and makes you feel very welcome. I read every review before hand and was aware of the limited TV channels so we brought many DVD's. The TV is small and it is the only one. If the TV were a little bigger you could possibly enjoy it from the bedroom because of its placement in the front room. We are huge TV people though. Everything else was wonderful. The noise from the road did not bother us in the cabin. We enjoyed our stay very much.

    Wonderful get-away! Left city life at home and enjoyed the country atmosphere!

We enjoyed the roaring fire only 20 feet from the stocked pond (poles & tackle already there & tons of wood ready for the fire pit) & the stars are plentiful! Canton is a quick trip up state Hwy 19 and if you head out the opposite direction look for Castle Oaks Winery! Very relaxing trip & the owners & neighbors were super hospitable! We loved it...

    Our overall experience with the Cattleman's Cabin and the owners was great! Due to our late arrival, we did not have the opportunity to meet the owners, but Stephanie was in contact with us to answer any and all questions we had from the get go, and continued to make herself available through out our stay. As far as the cabin and the property, it was wonderful! The entire property is decorated, stocked, and furnished with the same care and detail that most people would put into their own home. At first I was a bit hesitant that the road was so close but surprisingly, both privacy and road noise were not a problem once we were in a around the cabin. The porch is amazing! We spent hours out there, grilling, reading, fishing, and watching the cows. The cabin it self is clean and beautifully decorated with a ranch themed decor, and personalized with a few fun family pictures. The bed, pillows, and sheets are amazing! The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking, grilling, and even has a few items for cooking over the fire pit (which is also amazing, by the way). The bathroom is even well-stocked! My husband forgot his toothbrush, and there were even extras under the sink. No detail seems to have been left out, the cabin is even stocked with movies and games. I absolutely loved our stay here! I cannot say enough nice things about this property. According to my husband, the fishing left a little to be desired. But aside from that, the very best VRBO property yet! I hope to stay here again in the future.

    We stayed in the Cattleman's Cabin four days and really enjoyed it. It is only 10 minutes to Canton where you can buy all the supplies you need and only about 13 miles to Athens for evening wine purchase. The cabin is very clean and has everything you need. The lake was pretty and we enjoyed watching the sunsets from the great large porch. We will definitely go back again. Stephanie was easy to work with and professional.

    An unfortunate series of weather related events, delayed our arrival, limited our use of the outdoors, and eventually cut our stay short when the water supply company could not maintain a water supply to the cabin. Through it all, our hostess bent over backwards to keep us informed and address every problem to the best of their ability. They have nothing but our respect for dealing, as best they could, with problems that were beyond their control. We hope to return when the weather is more cooperative. While our stay could easily be labeled a disaster, I am giving them 4 stars for the level of service and the quality of the cabin and amenities. Absolutely the only minor issues are the proximity to the highway, which you may notice when outside, and the VERY limited TV reception.

    We spent a very relaxing 3 days in this pleasant cabin. Highlights include catch and release fishing just off the porch. A huge wrap around porch that can accommodate any number of quests. At no time did I feel like i was staying in someone else's home, but rather our own. I loved waking up early to the smells of fresh air and green grass and the soft bellows of cattle grazing along side the cabin. There are an abundance of back roads in the area that provide for nice rides. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    My wife and I arrived on 7/3, after a lengthy drive from Arlington, Texas. The owners daughter was kind enough to meet us at the cabin at 11:30pm to explain the rules, and answer any questions we had. The cabin was perfectly stocked with every item imaginable. To our surprise, the entire cabin was immaculate. Nice living room furniture, roomy kitchen, TV, DVD player (with awesome western movies), great bedroom, great sheets, comfortable mattress and pillows, clean shower / bath, washer, dryer, adequate towels, rags, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, everything one could want when traveling away from their home. The owners do a fantastic job of making sure their customers are well taken care of. Outside, there’s a wonderful deck that wraps the entire cabin, a pond to fish in, outdoor games (washers, etc.), grill, canoe, and a tree hammock. All was easily accessible, and very well kept. The only negative about the exterior is it’s closeness to the road. Highway noise was very loud, and somewhat took away from the peacefulness of being on a ranch in a cabin. With that said, it is easy to get in and out of the property, which I’m sure was the intention of the owners. Overall, this cabin was great! There’s nothing quite like cooking breakfast, overlooking cattle grazing, while watching Big Jake and drinking coffee!! Thank you for allowing us to stay!! Enjoyed the ‘trade days’ as well!
