We have three "Tipi Pods" available for camping. Each pod is 10 x 10 ft. inside and has four (4) drop down bunk beds. Each pod has electricity, lights and is air conditioned. There is a bath house not far from the pods that has two sides, each with a toilet, vanity sink and shower. The Tipi Pods are arranged in a semi-circle with a fire pit in the center and benches on the outside of the circle. Come enjoy as a single camper, a family, or a group wishing to "kumbaya" in the Piney Woods.

The space
The Tipi Pods were originally designed to house oilfield workers. We had the opportunity to acquire three of these pods. They are like framed tents, each is 10 x 10 ft. and has two bunk beds on each side of the pod. We have placed a blow-up queen-size sofa/sleeper in one of the pods for a couple. A blow-up queen mattress can be put in any of the other two pods. The Tipi Pods are air conditioned and have electricity for making coffee and charging your cell phone. We call it "glamping", camping with benefits; perfect for a family or group to stay in at night, then wander the property during the day. We have a common area that is great for celebrations, ceremonies or gatherings or for outdoor grilling on the fire pit. We have a golf cart for rent to cruise around on "Sugar Mountain". There are also a lot of things to do in the area, and many fishing and boating lakes.

Guest access
While visiting us and staying in the Tipi Pods you have full access to 42 acres of roads, trails, meditation decks, and exquisite beauty in nature. We do have a cottage on the property that is pretty popular and a "Tree House" Rustic Cabin that we also rent out, so there may be other visitors to share the property with. We are in the woods so we have the usual pests and critters that share our space. We have seen very few critters but there are signs that they live here to so it is important to wear the proper clothing and bring repellents and other camping gear for protection.

Pet restrictions include keeping pet on a leash; cleaning up and containing pet poop.
We live in the Piney Woods with lots of trees and underbrush; smoking is limited - no flipping of hot ashes - field-strip cigarette butts and put them in container - no butts on the ground! Be a good Boy Scout! Leave No Trace!

Other things to note
Please stipulate if you want a queen mattress or will use the 4 bunk beds. We suggest you bring coolers with food and drinks. The pods are limited in space so coolers will probably have to stay outside. There is room under the bunks to store backpacks or toiletries. Travel as though you were going camping. Water is available and electricity for air conditioner, fans, coffee pot, etc. inside each pod and also in bath house.

Location

Frankston, Texas, United States

Our property is less than five miles from the town of Frankston where there are two grocery stores, Spring Market and Kim's. Spring Market has more variety and Kim's has a great meat market with really fresh meats at reasonable prices. There is a Family Dollar and Dollar General (of course) and a couple of small restaurants. Tyler is 25 miles away and has everything you can think of in the way of shopping, movies, and restaurants. Lake Palestine is only 10 minutes from Frankston and is a great fishing and recreational lake. There is canoeing, kayaking, and other water sports nearby.

Leon and I moved to Frankston Texas in 2016. We found our "Paradise" in the Piney Woods of East Texas. We love it here, especially the Peace and Quiet of the 42 acres on which we live, called Sugar Mountain. We love for family, friends, and guests to come share the beauty of this land with us (Website hidden by Airbnb) If you would like to spend some time in nature, in a quiet and lovely natural setting, our retreat provides a place where it is possible to unwind, relax, and reflect, which we all need from time to time. Please visit us at www.paradisespiritualretreat to see more of our plans.
