"The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hands of man..." Author Unknown

This is it !!!

My great grandparent's home, literally surrounded by the Angelina National Forest, has been remodeled into a cozy farmhouse from which every window affords an amazing view of the landscaping and woods. Extra guest cabin available for additional guests for $100 a night. Photos of the guest cabin can be seen on Homeaway website also (Deep East Texas Forest Retreat).

Log cabin style bedroom with a queen size Tempur-pedic adjustable bed which has an infinite number of ergonomic rest positions, plus rejuvenating massage. The wireless remote lets you control movement from the comfort of your bed, as it electronically adjusts to your every whim. Bed is draped with a sheer canopy and faces a stone fireplace that ignites with just a click of the button from the wireless remote control for a cozy winter evening.

Open concept fully equipped/furnished kitchen and adjoining dining room has 8 person rustic dining table with panoramic windows overlooking the property and woods. Two antique rocking chairs invite you to come sip your morning coffee. If your lucky, you just might catch a glimpse of the deer as they step out of the tree line in the early morning hours.

Washing machine/dryer available.

Bathroom has walk-in shower.

Abundantly relaxing living room has large flat screen TV with satellite service and stereo with surround sound and WII, and cell phone booster. Kick back to enjoy a good movie or finally get to read that book in one of the four comfy recliners or let the sound of the water fountain lull you to sleep on the chaise lounge for a much needed nap.

Abundant porch swings, hammock, and rocking chairs on the screen porch and decks available to help you enjoy doing absolutely nothing !!

The luxury hot tub seats 6-7 people is tucked away in the woods in a private secluded hideaway which comes complete with remote control candles and lanterns, small fridge, and ceiling fan and is for the exclusive use of farmhouse guests only. A fire pit and 2 person hammock complete the little hidden gem.

The screen porch also has a gas grill for more convenient grilling. Beautifully maintained landscaping. Perfect for an intimate get away or small gatherings.

Located near Lake Sam Rayburn, Lufkin & Nacogdoches. Hiking trails just off the back porch.

Come step out of life's hustle and bustle for a few days for a get away that will satisfy your soul.

For a wedding venue,there are several natural areas on the property you can choose for your wedding ceremony depending on the number of guests; which the property can accommodate up to 75, but its also perfect for a smaller more intimate event. Rays of sunshine peek through the trees, creating the perfect lighting for stunning photos in both the morning and evening. We provide the property and accommodations and you or your wedding planner do the rest.

Additional guest cabin available for rent nightly for extra guests.

About Reginna Wise

I love deep East Texas ! I The sound of the wind in the pine trees,the musty smell of the forest floor, the fresh air, the blooming dogwoods and red bud trees. The wildlife. The hummingbirds. For me, going home is like stepping into a mini vacation everyday - where the hustle and bustle stops and life slows down.

I am proud to say that I work for law enforcement as a PD dispatcher. I have 2 beautiful grown daughters who are still the loves of my life. Spend my hours off working in my flowerbeds and vegetable garden, riding my horse or tending to the farm.

Exploring new places is one of the great joys of my life. So opening my home up so others can be refreshed and experience exploring the woods is exciting to me. Vacations should satisfy our souls or it just doesn't count as a vacation !!

Why Reginna Wise chose San Augustine

My home has been in my family for over 100 years. I spent every summer her as a child watching my grandparents live off this land. I am blessed to be the 4th generation to own it. My grandfather's original carpentry is proudly displayed with all its rustic warmth and imperfections

What makes this farmhouse unique

This property is unique in it's seclusion and peaceful surroundings. The forest is my back and front yard !!

Ideal setting to disconnect and relax!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about my visit was great... the house, the property, the woods! The host made sure I arrived safely and answered my random questions very quickly. The home has everything you need from plenty of towel to pots and pans. The next time I need to disconnect from the world, I will return here!

Perfect country escape

  • 5 of 5

This is exactly what was needed for a little getaway not far from home and the kids. The cottage is secluded and comfy with the farmhouse feel that makes you feel at home. A storm blew in during our stay and the owner came by to check on us and make sure everything was okay... very accommodating. Looking forward to staying again one day.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so quiet and peaceful because it's totally secluded from everything. It was a wonderful escape from the city, and I loved how pretty the woods were around the house. You're surrounded by big trees, dense woods, and wildlife. The house had all of the comforts of home even though you're out in the sticks. I was surprised how good the food was in Broaddus too. We ate at the Dairy Mart, and Bear's Country Diner. I highly recommend going to this place if you enjoy fresh air, peaceful solitude, and the outdoors.
