This place is fabulous! It's comfortable and clean. The pictures don't do it justice. It's literally paradise. We had our daughter's 18th bday there. What a perfect experience. Lynn went out of her way to make it magical. The place is decorated beautifully. It's very peaceful and serene. We enjoyed the animals. Even though it was cold and rainy, no one complained. The fire inside was warm and cozy. We celebrated into the morning hours with best friends by the huge outdoor fire pit with complete privacy and no worries of making too much noise.
Awesome Thanksgiving experience! Our family had a fantastic time at this cabin. The cabin was fully loaded with all the amenities needed for the week. Lynn the host had a fabulous welcome spread for us at our arrival and had plenty of breakfast food in fridge for the entire stay. We enjoyed close access to the green belts in the area and enjoyed Ray Roberts Park. The cabin was pet-friendly so we got to spend time with our furry babies too. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone. Thanks Lynn for the spectacular hospitality!

Our stay at the Slye ranch cabin was perfect. Lynn had a bottle of wine and a cheese board waiting for us when we checked in. Everything you need is in the cabin it very well stocked. The rescue race horse, Rex, along with the two miniature donkeys were very entertaining and we enjoyed feeding them with treats the owner provided. The outdoor sitting area around the fire pit was really nice. We sat out in the early morning and watched the cardinals and hummingbirds. The beds were very comfortable. We have already rebooked. This is perfect for us since we have a boat slip at Ray Roberts Marina. We hesitate telling anyone about the place because we want it all to ourselves, but we do highly recommend it to all of our friends.

Took my roommate Mary, who is getting married as a way to celebrate her last "single" weekend. We all loved the cabin, the atmosphere, the owners, everything! It was the perfect setting to celebrate a relaxing girl's night. The fire pit was perfect and we loved getting to feed the horse and miniature donkeys with treats. This house literally has everything you can think of so you really don't even have to pack an overnight bag. Lynn was so sweet and accommodating...leaving a bottle of wine for us and some delicious cheese and crackers. We will definitely be back in the future and hope to make this a yearly tradition.
Our stay was amazing. The owners have any and everything you could think of. They are very accommodating and easy to reach. There is a gorgeous friendly horse on the property and a couple of donkeys. After setting up the reservation, we found that there was a misunderstand and our expected nightly rate would be higher. The owners handled this situation quickly and we were able to come to an agreement. I was pleased to know I was dealing with good reasonable people. Also, it's far out in the country, so noise level is not as big of a concern. I could say so much more, but I honestly feel the best way to understand this amazing experience is for you to experience it on your own. My plans are to return back soon.
We felt very welcome at the property. My kids loved feeding the horse and two donkeys carrots that Lynn had left for us. There was a lovely fire pit in the back with marshmallows and hot cocoa for the kids as well. My son and I were able to easily walk down to the entrance of Isle Du Bois State Park for a day of hiking and exploring. Lynn had lots of recommendations for local activities, a fishing report and even hooked us up with horseback riding. A plus for attention to detail and making guests feel welcome!
You are always so thoughtful. I know that you always want to make the best space for your guests! That's what makes your place so special. We all love your cabin and I know that it's because of all the love and care that you put into everything. Your home is perfect the way it is. We are excited to stay here.

We travel all over the country and stay in a lot of houses and cabins and this by far is one of the nicest cabins we have stayed in! The beds had luxurious sheets along with very comfortable beds and pillows. When we arrived, they put out a tray of food, wines, soda, and snacks! No other place that we have been to has gone above and beyond like Lynn did! I would recommend this place to everyone because Lynn will make you feel right at home. This place is not only great for fisherman but for families as well! The property had security cameras, I believe 4 or 5, watching our truck and boat at all times. This made us feel very safe and that our belongings were safe as well. It was also very relaxing with a nice fire pit and chairs to sit around while watching the horse and miniature donkeys. If you are in this area and looking for a cabin to stay in, do not pass this cabin up!!
Best host ever! Love you Lynn! Can't wait to be back.
Doreen and Mike
Lovely Place! Very nice Get Away! Great bird watching. Love feeding the horse and donkeys. Good Night Sleep. Husband likes having a place close to the Marina. Cheese and crackers on arrival – Nice Treat! We will be back!! This a a Hidden Treasure! Great Place to have prayer time and connect with God.
Jamie and Miles
Thank you so much for the sweet hospitality! We loved staying here and can’t wait to come back!

We just love it here! Justin already wants me to book it again for him – We will be back – Thank you for making his 21st birthday special!
Hillary and Ish
We had so much fun staying here! Lynn is just so sweet and fun! The cabin is so cozy and was even full of food when we got here! :) We will definitely be back again. We made a friend for life!
Pro Angler, Mike I.
Loved parking my boat and truck right up front with the security cameras watching them throughout the night. No worries about the security of my boat and equipment. Best place ever!
Amanda and Larry
I think Lynn and Larry have spoiled us! The cabin was spotless! I loved the large windows that let in a lot of natural light. AC worked well. Beds and couch were comfy! The kitchen was impeccably stocked! I brought my marshmallow roaster tool and Lynn already had the exact same ones already in the cabin!! The waters in the fridge were perfectly handy for our bike rides along the trails at the lake and along the river. The robes were sooo soft and comfortable! The bath salts were a sweet touch as well. Lynn and Larry were exceptional hosts! Super friendly, easy to talk to, and very accommodating. Their precious horse and donkeys were a delight as well (Rex, Wally, and Beaver And I can't say enough about the welcome platters! Fresh, fruity, light! Perfect for the summer. There were plenty of things to do in the area. Several places to eat nearby if you choose to go out. The lake and surrounding areas are well maintained. The views from the front porch are lovely... trees and more trees and a sunset :) The burn pit is a good size. The patio furniture is well maintained and nice. I even had a headache while there and in the medicine cabinet I found some pain relievers! A great variety of instant and ground coffees were available too! Really a great place to stay!
Jim and Sonia
What a wonderful time from a wonderful host/hostess. We were made to feel at home and very well taken care of. It's obvious Lynn has a passion for hospitality. Within five minutes, Sonia had already asked me to come back:) Thanks for a great time.
As a corporate pilot I fly all over the country and stay at many hotels and resorts. This is better than any resort I have stayed at and the girls loved it.
You’ve thought of everything down to the smallest detail. Nice & comfortable place for us while we are in the area for an extended time for business. We booked additional nights.
Jason and 13 yr old twins, Collin and Nick
Thank you so much for your hospitality. Great little place you have here!
Chris and Mary
Much more than expected.
We were welcomed upon arrival with a platter full of snacks and a thorough walk through of the cabin. Our family of four were very comfortable and plenty of space to spread out. It was a hot summer day and A/C worked great! Beds were comfortable. Kitchen has anything and everything you need as well as bath needs. Large closet to hold suitcases to get them out of the way. Even had snacks to feed horse and donkeys. Parked our boat right in front to visit a beautiful lake with swimming beach is right down the road. Enjoyed porch sitting and wine in the evening. Our only regret was only booking one night! We felt so welcome. Thank you Lynn!
We first stayed here in March on our way to SXSW music festival, this A-Frame has quickly become our home away from home... My creative partner, Evelyn, and I are spearheading a music project called Field Division; we're touring the country while recording our first LP, and collaborating with the fantastic musicians of the nearby Texas gem, Denton (only 20 min drive). Lynn & Larry have been the most accommodating for our off-kilter use of the place - and all the extras we could imagine, including the cabin itself, not to mention. The A-Frame was supposedly built in the 60's, and the surrounding quintessential Texas ranch lifestyle is also very inspiring and relaxing. When I am here, I regularly feed horse and donkey, which isn't something I could have admitted before. We look forward to coming back!

Our stay here was an exceptional experience. Our host Lynn went well above and beyond in the welcome she provided as well as giving any assistance we needed. The amenities were excellent. The beds very comfortable. The location relaxing. If you are planning to stay in the area, definitely considering staying at this location. You will not be disappointed.
Wonderful venue for a getaway or a birthday party. Owner is amazing and do all they can to make sure everything goes well.
We had a wonderful weekend at Slye Ranch - Lynn spoiled us rotten and the cabin could not have been more perfect! My kids are already begging to go back, and we plan to do just that this summer!!
Very nice and well done A+ in my book. Will be back!!!
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon October 27th-29th 2017. It was everything we hoped it would be and more. Thank you guys for the awesome time, and a special thanks for picking up some groceries for our stay since we arrived on a motorcycle. The Cabin was decorated on the inside with tons of beautiful flowers, which my wife absolutely loved. Thanks again for the awesome honeymoon.
We had such a fun time this weekend at the Ray Roberts Slye Ranch for my bachelorette party!
Mrs. Lynn was So sweet and most hospitable. She had everything prepared for us before we got there and even stayed up to welcome us in when we arrived late.
Highly recommend staying here!! It's so gorgeous, and can accommodate a lot of people plus they have wildlife to make your stay that much more enjoyable.
Thank you for a great weekend in North Texas, Slye Ranch!
LOVED this sweet cabin & the host! Lynn had everything ready for our bachelorette party including a welcome platter, Cokes, sweet tea, milk, water and EVERYTHING else we could have even asked for! She even had the fire pit ready for roasting marshmallows! Had so much fun!! ......one more thing! - she heard we were gonna bring a little one with us, and made sure even she had what she needed! Baby soap in the bathroom ready and waiting. I can't say enough about this place!!!!
This bed and breakfast is better than any 5-star resort. I've stayed here multiple times and have a new adventure each time. The owners are so thoughtful and available to help (but not overbearing). The property is BEAUTIFUL. There are so many plants and flowers. We saw deer, lots of wild birds, and of course the horse and donkeys. The décor in the cabin is like nothing you've seen. Best part? Dog friendly!
Beautiful accommodations, very peaceful. And the hostess is the sweetest lady. She really wants her guests to have a nice relaxing time and often goes out of her way to help make that happen!
I called Lynn to inquire about rates for my 2 year anniversary. She was so helpful over the phone and suggested we stay in her new shipping container swanky cabin conversion. It sounded perfect so I booked it and that was just the beginning! Lynn helped me plan such a perfect weekend, she made sure that we knew of things to do in the area like horseback riding through the state park, and places to eat. She suggested that I send her pictures from the wedding that she could put up in the cabin and when we got there she even had designed a lavish charcuterie plate with a bottle of champagne to celebrate!
The converted shipping container could only be described as classy, chic and comfortable, with a fireplace, full kitchen, and very comfy bed. Huge windows look out onto the farm with friendly donkeys and a horse that get you in the morning asking for carrots (which are will stocked in the refrigerator). The top of the cabin is decked out (literally) with lounge furniture and a cafe table and chairs and the grounds are full of beautiful flowers and plants that Lynn cares for.
This place is a magical get away from the city that's not too far out to become a habit. it will certainly become one for my wife and me.
Last night was our first time staying at Slye Ranch, but it will not be the last! My family and I have traveled extensively all over the country and to many others as well and the service and hospitality you receive at this location rivals any we have experienced. The owner is extremely accommodating, welcoming, and kind. The location is beautiful and it is very close to many enjoyable activities. The food and drinks provided were delicious and the décor is so unique and charming. The beds were incredibly comfortable and we loved the outdoor sitting area on top of the ‘Copper Can’. I can’t say enough about how awesome this place it! We liked it so much we rebooked before we left the property !
Just... wow. It was my woman’s birthday and Lynn went above and beyond to make sure our stay was more than extraordinary. Every detail was payed very close attention. When you make the time to visit this beautiful place, show Lynn the respect she shows you! Highly highly recommend to anyone looking for the perfect little getaway!
Update: it’s been a week since we stayed and we can’t stop thinking about when we could go back! Hoping we can stay in the container they turned into a luxury hideout! It’s beautiful inside and out and is so fitting for the property! It looks like a tiny house and was custom made with a beautiful outdoor second floor balcony. Definitely still recommend!
Alex De Leon
Beds are comfortable, location is quiet, and Lynn is very accommodating. She really goes out of her way to make sure her guests have anything they might need. There's also great restaurants nearby and the lake is only a few minutes away.
My wedding also took place here and I can't stress enough how much Lynn helped my wife with everything. She went above and beyond for us and both of our families had so much fun here. I can't even imagine our wedding taking place anywhere else. If it was possible to give Lynn and Slye Ranch over a 5-star rating, I would.
I highly recommend staying here of you're in the area.
Beautiful property. Lynn and Larry are so friendly and accommodating. They will forever be special to us, and we hope to enjoy their property in the future for quite weekends out of the city.
Lynn, our hostess was amazing! This is our favorite weekend getaway place! Wish we had more time to enjoy! Thank you, Lynn, for making us feel at home and the Love you have shown our daughter! Not only do we have a getaway place but our daughter has a new grand ma! Highly recommended! Blessings
Absolutely amazing place! Loved it! The little details were so special! Definitely will be back! The "Copper Can" is a must!
I had the pleasure of being a guest at Slye Ranch for several weeks. Owners Lynn and Larry are amazing. The Copper Can where I stayed is a luxury experience you have to see to believe! Always attentive to my needs, Lynn and Larry made me feel like family. I would highly recommend Slye Ranch if you’re looking for a clean, reasonably priced and well-appointed getaway in the Denton or Dallas area.
Lynn & Larry were the best hosts we could have ever asked for! From the moment I booked on-line, they were there to assist with any questions/concerns I had since our stay fell over the Covid pandemic. We felt confident we chose the perfect place and would be safe! As soon as we pulled in Cooper Can, we felt immediately relaxed and in love with what they created. You can tell how much love & time they have poured in creating a perfect little gem! Attention to detail, all the personal touches (a very special thank you for all the amazing breakfast goodies they provided from their local farm, Singleton Farms. Rex, their retired racing horse & two sweet donkeys were the icing on the cake-they left us treats to feed them and provided the perfect view to wake up to every morning. Lynn was even kind enough to drive us to and from the venue my niece got married in to ensure we had a safe and comfortable journey! We would return in a heartbeat!
