We were referred to the Mansion by another B&B owner in the area and they couldn’t have made a better referral. The setting was like going back in time a bit. It worked out that we were the only guests that weekend and we had the house to ourselves. We felt like southern royalty. The decor was beautiful and absolutely perfectly balanced for that time period. The bed was one of the most comfortable that we have ever slept on and the room charming and spacious. We didn’t miss television or internet at all! Although it was still cold out, the grounds were perfectly manicured and outdoor area offered a couple of gazebo style seating areas with comfortable chairs and table with places to cook out or have an evening fire. The chapel and wooden bridges would be perfect for weddings and celebrations. The innkeepers Carolyn and Lonnie were a treasure; pleasant, informative and great cooks! They were available for anything we needed the entire weekend. We are looking forward to going back in the spring when all of the flowers and trees are in full bloom. We would recommend this lovely place to anyone looking to get away and commune with nature or to secret away in another world for a while.

When a family starts a new tradition, everyone is always a little nervous wondering if it will work. The Oaks family has for years spent the holidays at my parents home, John and Valeria Oaks. There are about 23 of us and we are growing. We were forced to change that beloved tradition this year on Thanksgiving. It was our first without Mom and Dad. We chose Beaver Creek Lodge to gather children and grandchildren to celebrate the holiday, recall precious memories and make some new ones. We did just that. Caroline and her husband went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The old lodge and the grounds are beautiful! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to make new, precious memories. Get to the lodge and make yours!

TFCR-BC“Wow! What an awesome place! We stayed at Beaver Creek (log cabin). This log cabin is literally down a gravel road in the middle of the woods. Absolutely no other properties within site. The main B&B is about 2 miles away. The cabin is well built with that rustic homey feel. It has a full kitchen and all the amenities of home including a washer and dryer. There are 2 stocked ponds on site and a huge lake at the main house that is stocked with huge bass and perch just begging for a hook. It is so relaxing. The meals were out of this world and so plentiful that there was no way you could finish them. The manager Brice could not be more accommodating and WOW! What a chef! He came to the cabin to prepare a romantic steak dinner for my husband and myself…amazing! There is a huge screened in porch with rockers for coffee in the a.m. It was nice just to sit and admire nature. The grounds are beautiful! This place is a definite redo for the whole family when we are able to return. The main house is gorgeous however, if you want ABSOLUTE privacy, Beaver Creek is the way to go!”

“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for going way above and beyond our hopes and dreams for our special day. The Mansion was a perfect setting for our wedding. It was a beautiful, lush picture of God’s beauty. We can not thank you enough for allowing us to “honeymoon” at Beaver Creek. It was a perfect ending to our perfect day! The two of you hold a special place in our hearts. We look forward to celebrating milestones with the B&B and pray that God bless your endeavors.”

“Thank you so much for letting us experience God’s awesome beautiful creation. This time alone away from our children (which doesn’t happen often) has been great as we are celebrating our 11 years together. The cabin and the yard are so beautiful – Bobby has been in awe the whole time we have been here. He was so surprised that there was something so beautiful tucked away in the woods. We thank you so much for sharing your retreat with us. May you be richly blessed,”

“We had a great and glorious time. Warm weather, good friends and a wonderful place to stay, Beaver Creek was wonderfully exquisite for our yearly college reunion. The kiddos especially loved wandering around the lake.”

Chris & Nicole (Round Rock, Texas)

 

“My stay here was lovely. I came for a private getaway from the hustle and bustle of life and I got what I came for. This home is perfect for that because it is nestled back in the woods. I heard very little traffic and enjoyed sitting on the porch listening to the tranquil sounds of nature. Thank you for your hospitality.”

Suzann (Beaumont, Texas)

 

“Thank you for sharing your retreat with us. It was also a great surprise for me. CG did not tell me where we were going until we were almost here – and wow what a surprise. I am so happy the Lord has blessed you both with this place and that you have a generous heart to share it with others. Thank you for the gift of this weekend. What a blessing.”

“Our church staff has once again been blessed by your generosity. This retreat setting allowed us to focus in a way that is impossible at our office. We accomplished much during our time here and were able to set into motion our insights of God’s will for our church. Thank you so much for allowing us this retreat. You have helped our ministry immensely.”

“Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful lodge. We enjoyed the wonderful loft upstairs and the view outside is breathtaking. We have a log cabin too so it was nice to have a bit of home away from home.”
