With Lake Texoma flooded, a great way to spend some quality summer fun is a few days at a Bed & Breakfast. We have reviewed the many B&B's in the Lake Texoma area and are really impressed with Pappy's Paradise.
From their web site:
"Pappy's Paradise is located in a peaceful country setting on 12 plus acres seven miles west of Pottsboro, Texas, one mile from Paradise Cove and two miles to Mill Creek Marina on beautiful Lake Texoma. There are two guest houses from which to choose:
"Pappy's Place" is a charming two bedroom, two bath cottage with a sunroom, living room and full kitchen. You may enjoy the comfort of a wood burning stove, antique furnishings and the beautiful setting of a duck pond and twelve wooded acres. It also has a washer/dryer.
"The Cabin" is secluded in the woods and has all the charm of a rustic hide-a-way. It has one bedroom with a queen size bed and a sleeping loft with a full bed and daybed. It is furnished with the fisherman and hunter in mind. There is a sofa sleeper and pot bellied stove in the living room. The kitchen is fully furnished and the bath contains a claw foot tub and separate shower. The large front porch extends the living space and is a perfect place to sit in the swing and relax and enjoy the wildlife.
We provide our guests with breakfast to enjoy at their leisure in each of the guest houses. Your breakfast includes a breakfast casserole, sweet rolls, cereals, juice, milk, coffee and we also provide complimentary cold drinks, bottled water and a dessert."
We found Pappy's Paradise very easy to get to and very convienently located. They are off the main road leading from Flowing Wells and Mill Creek. There is a great country store about a half mile away, The Locust Store, which has most everything, gas, cold beverages, deli, etc…. If you want seclusion, with all the comforts this is the place. Both the Cottage and the Cabin are unique and exciting. They both will astound you with their beauty and comfort and give you a feeling of true relaxation. The grounds are beautiful with hiking paths thru the woods, a fishing pond and even a paddleboat.
We also found they offer some cool specials such as "The Romantic Weekend", "Family Fun Weekend" and "The Girlfriends Get-Away"
