Private residential home next to a hayfield and a barn. Cellular phone service does NOT work here unless you have a good signal booster. GPS knows where the property is, however, ensure you have the directions loaded on to your device at least ten miles before reaching Oakwood Farms.
No smoking on the property during fire season.
Rough rural blacktop and gravel road. The road has one 90 degree turn before the driveway, and another 90 degree turn to enter the driveway. Large trucks and 40 ft. hay trailers use the road successfully.
Grass parking next to the rig.
We will leave on last minute trips. Check for availability.
Polar Express train ride during the season at the Texas State Railroad in Palestine TX (about a 40 minute drive to the north east).
The host at Oakwood-Farms showed us wonderful hospitality. While this location may be a bit off the beaten trail for most, we found the pastoral setting wonderful. We even took the ebikes for a ride around the perimeter of the hay field.
Unfortunately we cut our stay a little short as it was not as close to the relatives we were visiting as I initially thought. We would love to come back sometime and share stories about travels. Stay safe!!!
The host at Oakwood-farms was very friendly and welcoming when we arrived at his home. Low keyed and relaxing host and atmosphere. Thank you for your kindness M. may your travels be frequent and safe. Hope to see you again in the future.
We were so encouraged by both the location and the host. After a busy couple of months, with a couple busy days ahead, staying here was a real blessing. The view out of our "living room" windows was wonderful. We will definitely look forward to intentionally passing this way on our next trip between Dallas and Houston.
It is easy to find and not far off of I-45. The one drawback, as the host has noted is lousy cell service. But it was nice to step away from the data grid for a night.
Thanks so much for a wonderful rest! 🤠 🤗
We were met at the gate with a warm, friendly welcome and directed to park any direction we preferred! Enjoyed chatting and viewing their big camper too. A beautiful, easy to locate, countryside place and we are so grateful for being able to stay here overnight, thanks again!
