Our Denton County country guest house which is located in the heart of the DFW Metroplex…approximately 40 miles northwest of downtown Dallas, 40 miles northeast of downtown Fort Worth and 60 miles from Arlington.   
The restored Texas log farmhouse is nestled amongst gorgeous 100+ year old live Oaks trees.  Think of a rustic but cozy and elegant Colorado lodge.  There are spectacular views with some pitch and roll offering the true beauty of this impressive countryside. Have fun watching the horses graze, deer feeding at dawn and all the wonderful bird species that come our way.  Located on 22 acres down a secluded country road.
Enjoy the beauty of a clear Texas night before bed and a fresh cup of coffee or tea on one of the two large porches, complete with rockers, while you watch our magnificent Texas sunrises and sunsets to relax your body and soul.  Watch the horses graze, the chickens hunt for bugs...we sometimes have deer and wild turkey come up to the house.  Also take time to sit by the pool while sipping on your favorite beverage, or enjoy the wood burning fireplace inside! 
Outside you will have access to a private pool.   There is a fire pit by the pool and we have an outdoor propane grill available.   We provide the firewood and the propane for the grill.
This is a working horse breeding facility.  You will see the trainers and barn workers busy with the horses.  We ask guests to not visit the barn or pet the horses unless an employee of Los Arboles is available to be with the guest.  But, if you and your guests would like a tour of the barn...just notify us.  If we are available we would love to show off our barn and horses.  We typically have one to three baby horses (foals) born per year and they are adorable.  In the spring and summer we incubate and hatch chicken eggs.  Come see!!
The house has six bedrooms, 4 baths.  Downstairs is the master bedroom with queen bed, master bath with double sinks off the bedroom.  The other bedroom downstairs has twin beds with a bathroom off the side.  There is a family room with a flat screen TV, DVD player, wood burning fire place, fully stocked kitchen and small dry bar.  The glassed in back porch shares the wood burning fire place with the family room and has a sitting area and dining table.   
Upstairs are four bedrooms (two with queen bed and two with double beds) and two baths.  Please note that the log cabin design provides for an open concept and the upstairs bedrooms do not have doors.  There are privacy screens available to shut off the bedrooms from the hallway.  Also upstairs is a game room with the ping pong table.   
This property is in an amazing location.  Close to Denton, McKinney and Frisco.  While you will be in a secluded country area...around the corner are restaurants, a huge Walmart for shopping and Lake Lewisville is six miles away.  The property is very convenient to all the wedding venues in Aubrey as well.  Right now, in the spring of 2019 the property is amazing.  We have had wonderful spring rains when makes for gorgeous pastures.  We are busy planting flowers and making the gardens gorgeous as well.  Come on out!
While sitting on the porch and watching the livestock is my favorite thing to do...here are some other cool things to do while staying at the property.

  • John and Ellen bought this property needing more land for our expanding horse business. The property had a lovely log home on it so we decided to turn the home into a vacation rental. We loved fixing up the home for peoples' gatherings and have loved the knowing people are sharing good times there. There have been amazing stories of love and togetherness at Los Arboles. Thanks for sharing everyone!

Country paradise!

The home is in a rural setting, but still close enough to the city. Its a unique home with brick floors, wide porches overlooking the horse pastures, and a beautiful pool. Its so quiet, you can enjoy the sounds of nature all around you! The home is stocked well. We were there in very hot conditions and found the individual room air conditioners and fans to work well to keep house cool. There really wasnt a check in process...the house was unlocked, so we just made ourselves at home. We never received a key (which didnt bother us), so we left it unlocked the whole time. We never even worried about our safety or the safety of our belongings! Its a great home for families but not couples, necessarily, if you are expecting alone time! Otherwise, its perfect!!!

Perfect for a getaway!

This place is amazing! The pictures don\'t do it justice. It seems like you are miles from civilization but you are just 1.5 miles from anything you need! It\'s just gorgeous!

Amazing Place !!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ranch. House was very comfortable and had plenty of room. The location was very peaceful and restful, could sit on the back porch with coffee all day long!! Watched the ranch hands training horses. Owner kept in good contact with us during our stay. We will be back!!
