Our 3 Bedroom, 3 Full Bath newly-renovated guesthouse, originally built around 1900, sits on an acre on the edge of Circled Bar Ranch, 4 miles west of the city of Bowie. Spacious, inviting interior combines modern comfort with a touch of ranching family heritage. Guests may enjoy country living while experiencing Bowie's eclectic shops, dining, local festivals and activities, and Second Monday Trade Days. Wifi and satellite TV are available.

The space
The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, microwave, oven, refrigerator, and cooking and dining utensils. Breakfast essentials will be provided. The deck offers views of Brushy Mound, a well-known landmark in Montague County. Horse friendly with corral located nearby on owner's property.

Guest access
The entire house and surrounding yard is available for the guests to enjoy during their stay.

Other things to note
The back part of the house, including the bedroom where the bunk beds are located, was once the "lean-to", and therefore the ceiling is lower than standard. It is ideally suited for children. (Our grandchildren call it the "Hobbit Hole".) Also in the room is a 1-person futon, which can sleep an additional child or youth. A TV with a DVD player is in the room.
