About This Listing
Private suite sleeps four and includes a full private bathroom and three locking closets. This comfortable space also boasts a dresser, a nightstand, a swivel chair and a writing desk.
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, laundry room, kitchen 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 away. Taxi service is available.

Had a very good time in Lubbock. Got the room for 2 days to attend an event in town. Shawn was present to greet me. He showed me around. very spacious kitchen and living room. The rooms are extremely large with their private bathroom. The area is very quiet and I had two very good nights of sleep. Thank you Shawn.
Shawn was very accommodating, we had to change our travel dates a couple of times and we were so grateful it all worked out. The place was so easy to get to and from and just down the road from a variety of restaurants. His place is very homey and inviting...Shawn was an awesome host. We were there to move my daughter back home from Tech for the summer, and she one more late night of studying and Shawn's place was the perfect place for it....we were also grateful to have a place to hang out while we were waiting for her to finish with her finals. We loved the Chickens, so much that my daughter now wants some. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat!!!
Initially my husband was hesitant pulling into Shawn's place- the outside reminded us of old army housing or retirement homes- but once inside, we felt comfortable and welcome. My 4 yr old and 15 month old loved visiting the back yard chickens, and we all slept well in our room, suite 4. The room was clean and the shower was equipped with a very nice shower head.
Shawn offered many beverages, snacks, and light breakfast too.
Our stay was very short, just one night with a late evening arrival and an early morning start but we enjoyed our stay and would return here again on our next bout to Lobbuck.
I had a great experience at Shawn's place. I wasn't sure how far I would get when driving from Austin to Colorado and didn't decide to stay in Lubbock until a few hours prior to arriving. Shawn was quick to respond to my request and very accommodating! The room he gave me was great -- very, very spacious and with a comfortable bed. The next morning, Shawn was up in the kitchen making coffee and told me to help myself to anything on the breakfast bar. Will definitely be back to try the fresh eggs from his backyard chickens, too!
Shawn is a very welcoming, warm-hearted soul. My group of friends and I felt very comfortable and at home staying in one of his suites. The pictures are accurate and the rooms look and feel new (very clean as well). The neighborhood is conveniently located right off of the freeway and is easy to access to travel into downtown Lubbock. It was great to have a shareable lounge area and kitchen to use. I highly recommend staying here!
Lauren, i'm so sorry you did not know about the Wi-Fi. There was a welcome card on the desk in your bedroom with the username and password available for you. I'm also terribly sorry about the shower. Thank you so much for letting me know about that. I was completely unaware that there was an issue with the shower drain. I will address that today and get that fixed
We are still staying at this location but at first meeting with the owner it was perfect. Very helpful and very nice. Location was just how it was described. I felt as if all our questions were answered and the house was so great!

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.
