About This Listing
The warm & open space of Suite 1 is furnished with one queen bed, a queen futon sofa, a daybed, a dresser and a writing desk and offers the feel of a cozy studio apartment.
Just 5 minutes from Texas Tech University, South Plains Mall, Lubbock Christian University and most restaurants, this quiet ranch house has the feel of country living while only minutes away from Lubbock's most popular destinations. Situated just across from a playa lake, evening walks along the water and fishing may be enjoyed by those interested.
The home was built in 1963 as one of the first maternity homes built in the USA for unwed teenage moms. I have renewed the home as a temporary resting place for missionaries as they travel between home and their mission point. Anytime I have rooms available, I like to open my home to any guests in need of a roomy, comfortable and safe place to stay.
Spacious ranch-house with five - 16'x18' bedroom suites with full private baths. Quiet home convenient to everything . Just blocks from two main highways, the wide-open spaces and small lake across the street offers the feel of country living.
This large house allows for family style dining, walks around the lake, drinking coffee on the largeback porch or simply finding a secluded space for quality alone time. If you prefer community, feel free to gather in the living room or enjoy snacks around the table which seats 14.
Guests have access to the great room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room and large back patio.
Interaction with Guests
My schedule is very random and I will be in and out so much of the time u may have the house to yourself.
The neighborhood is quiet and has a nice somewhat secluded feel to it with lots of wide open spaces. Just across the street glistens a blue pond stocked with fish and ready for you to enjoy. Whether you like fishing, walking, jogging or just gazing into the sparkling water, make yourself at home in the natural surroundings.
We are not on the city bus route, but the nearest bus stop is about 1/2 mile from the house. Taxi service is available.

Shawn greeted me when I came in, showed me around, and made me feel quite welcome and at home. His communication leading up to my stay was prompt and thorough. His place was clean and inviting. I had an excellent experience.
We enjoyed our one night stay. Shawn is a gracious host. The location felt safe, rooms felt private, everything was very clean and comfortable. Would stay again.
Shawn is a great host and provides excellent communication. My husband and I along with our 2 children ages 6 and 5 felt welcome and at home. The children loved the chickens in the back yard and the free roaming prairie dogs across the street. We had very peaceful sleep in the softest sheets, better than what we usually experience at a hotel. Everything was very clean and comforting. Shawn even helped us with recommendations for places to eat which were amazing. We will definitely stay there again when visiting Lubbock.
Second time that we have stayed with Shawn, so that should say a lot. He is timely in response and makes guests feel welcome. This is a good place to stay.
Shawn was not at the property when we checked in but communicated electronically promptly before and on arrival. The description of the house was very accurate. The property looks rather average from the outside but is very nice on the inside. The suites are well decorated and attractively appointed.

About the Host, Shawn
I have lived my life around the globe and have shared in the hospitality of people throughout the world. These have been some of the best experiences of my life. I have the opportunity now to be on the hosting side of things and am eager to continue to have many great experiences with people, yet this time sharing my space with people from across the planet.
