The beautiful, well-kept Guest House features 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a garden tub, a fully functional kitchen complete with refrigerator, and a lovely tree lined view of the property's southwest hay meadow. The property serves both as a home and also as a successful Retreat Center on select weekends of the year. On those select weekends it serves as a part-time retreat venue for guests dedicated to scrap-booking, quilting, crafting, and shopping. In addition to serving as a host for these weekend groups, the property also hosts family reunions, corporate retreats, and offers lodging accommodation for visitors to Canton First Monday Trade Days. These endeavors have allowed the property to be all but totally self supporting for the past 8 years. This fabulous retreat is located 60 - 70 minutes east of Dallas and 11 minutes from the world famous First Monday Trade Days in Canton where shoppers travel monthly to find antiques, primitives, collectibles, arts and crafts, clothing, handmade furniture, and toys.
