Vacationing at our Calamity Creek, TX home is a true escape and a step back in time. An honest-to-goodness retreat. Our home is pleasingly remote, situated on 20 acres a half-mile from the highway down a dirt road. During your visit, you can take in magnificent sunsets and the exquisite wildlife - both flora and fauna. One of our favorite pasttimes is simply being with family and friends out on the porch under the cool night skies looking at the stars with a fire crackling away in the chiminea.
