The Salt Lick Retreat is located in Spring, Texas, west of I-45 in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Located 30 minutes north of downtown Houston, we are close to The Woodlands, ExxonMobil Campus, parks, playgrounds, golf courses, movie theaters, walking and biking trails, gyms, quality restaurants, and shopping malls.
The lush yard has a salt water unheated swimming pool with cool jacuzzi, both of which are open year-round for those brave enough to enjoy them during the winter! Winters are mild here, lasting December through February, with average temperatures of 45ºF to 66ºF. The yard features an outdoor gazebo, lounge chairs and seating, an 8'x14' rectangular trampoline with safety netting, fire pit, and a dual bbq (charcoal and gas). Monarch butterflies emerge from cocoons in the bushes (or on the furniture!) almost year-round.
This four bedroom, two and a half bath home is lovingly decorated with formal and informal Texas antiques and other furnishings. Two bedrooms are available in the right wing of the home. The remaining two bedrooms are the owner's bedroom (which makes up the left wing of the home) and office.

What a wonderful house Meg has. Her house was neat and clean, and well-safety too (just make sure you read the house manual). The neighborhood was amazing. It's really appealing for taking a rest & relax in her house. There were a pool and jacuzzi that unfortunately we could't have a chance to go in because we mostly going out until night, but we loved to enjoy breakfast in the pool side in the patio. She made great breakfast every morning and she's so easy to communicate with. If you won't mind driving 50 minutes from/to Houston to get a relaxing ambience, Meg's house is the place you can ask for.
