About Coke Buchanan

This is a family run business who enjoy sharing our home with others.

Coke Buchanan purchased this chateau / country house in 2016

Why Coke Buchanan chose Mabank

This spacious home is uniquely designed to provide the ambiance folks are wanting to escape big city chaos, the close proximity of neighbors and noise complaints.

It also provides business associates what they need for team building, brainstorming, and capacity building. Of course...as a tax write-off!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The search for Coyote Ridge, a second vacation rental home for our happy return rentals, took two years to find. Renters wanted privacy, entertainment, large rooms and a place to feel connected; with family, friends, and the outdoors.

Sleep at your own risk!! Bed bugs!

  • 1 of 5

We should have read the one star review from July when they complained of having bed bug bites after their stay. What was supposed to be a fun 3 day birthday weekend turned out be one of the worst. Yes, the place had everything you needed and started off great! Then at 3:30am, we discover bed bugs big enough to see them crawling all over our sleeping children and parents! We took videos and sent pics to the owner. Couple families ended up sleeping on the couch and some in their cars. We could no longer stay there and ended up leaving the next day. Bri was very apologetic and worked with us. However, the bites that have just surfaced and the itching and burning and the constant paranoia of possibly having brought them back is too much to deal with! We would hate for another family to experience this. Conflicting stories with when the place was treated leads us to believe it was never even treated before we got there. Make sure to have a flashlight to check out every crevice, sheets and especially bed frames for any evidence of bed bugs. We have learned these bugs will only come out when dark to feed. Four out of five rooms had visible bed bugs which could only mean a severe infestation. We do hope the owners have this place under control as promised.

Owner's Response: John, As a family run business, the comfort and safety of our guests is our utmost priority. We understand your concern as well for the safety of our guests. Again, we sincerely apologize for the situation you and your family endured as reflected by our immediate refund of your money. As part of our monthly preventative maintenance schedule, we personally treated the property for insects prior to your arrival, both chemically and with extreme heat; unfortunately, the procedure we utilized was not effective. Taking your concern seriously and professionally, immediately after your stay, we hired a Pest & Bedbug extermination company that professionally treated the entire home at a cost of $3,018 , with an 18-month guarantee. As you may or may not know, there is a national bedbug epidemic. Lodging environments such as ours, are the most vulnerable as we weekly entertain guests, both national and international. Our family has invested considerable time and attention to providing a serene environment with bountiful amenities for families and friends to come together and celebrate life at a very reasonable cost. We respond to guest concerns and requests amicably, fairly, and timely as illustrated by our responsiveness to you and your concern for meeting the expectations of future guests. Since your stay in November, the home as been occupied every week by guests and family with not a single recurring issue; a testament that the issue has been completely resolved. Our family remains stalwart in continuing to provide our home for the enjoyment of others and in providing additional amenities in the future. Respectfully, The Buchanan Family

Great place BUT.......

  • 2 of 5

The owners have gone out of their way to accommodate a lot of guests and supply the home with fun activities (pool table, ping pong, darts, outdoor games etc). The outdoor yard and sitting areas were very nice.

BUT due to an indoor grill that we never touched the house smelled like smoke. It was so bad that we almost left the first day. We had to wash all of our clothes when we arrived back home to try and get rid of the smokey smell. The house was picked up but very dirty. Floors were sticky, some dishes were put away dirty, we even found a half eaten piece of pizza on a plate on top of refrigerator. I think the owners try to offer a great getaway, and most of our party did stay all three nights but they definitely need better cleaners.

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting homes off VRBO for a few years now and this has been one of my favorite spots! Everyone had an incredible time and the house is great. I thought about putting in an offer on the home while I was there! Recommend this place for any event or get together.
