The Cabin on Mayhaw Ridge

log cabin in woodsThe perfect romantic getaway for two, the Cabin on Mayhaw Ridge was completed in February of 2014, on Valentine's weekend. Built beside the Mayhaw orchard, planted on our high sandy ridge, this cabin is built the old-fashioned way of rough-cut pine, and is a favorite for anniversaries, honeymoons, or just to spend some quality time with the one you love.

The Cabin on Mayhaw Ridge offers the peace and quiet of your own secluded cabin with the benefits of a bed and breakfast. After a walk through the Big Thicket, enjoy an outdoor shower under the stars, and a comfortable bedroom with charming decorations of antiques and country décor. In the evening, you can meander through the orchard, or sit by a campfire and explore the country skies. Maybe see a falling star or a full moon.

Breakfast and More...

Many folks in Texas have fond memories of hiking along creek banks in the back woods to hunt the Mayhaw berry. We would seine them, or throw a sheet down under a tree to collect the berries. Sometimes we had to fight the snakes for the reward! A favorite in the south, Mayhaw jelly is always served for breakfast here at Ethridge Farm.

Country Breakfast - Your stay includes a real Texas home-cooked country breakfast served each morning from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. in the Lodge dining room. You'll want to sample the variety of delicious selections available, including homemade Mayhaw jelly and fresh fruits in season.

Dinner - For an additional charge, you might also like to dine with us for a country dinner served in the Lodge dining room, or we can bring a romantic candlelight dinner directly to your cabin.

Please see our Meals and Amenities section for menus and more information.

Enjoy The Country Life - You might like to take a stroll on our grounds, or enjoy a romantic picnic by the pond. Be sure to experience the fun of fishing, or picking your own fruit in season. Just part of country life! We like to give you a bag of fruit, which you have picked, as a memory of your visit to The Farm. Fruits may include Blueberries, Mayhaws, Pears, Muscadines, Satsumas, Lemons, Persimmons and Kumquats.
