Cheers! We are John & Heidi Gardiner from Murphy, Texas. We first discovered what was once tiny little Hochatown while vacationing with our two boys and friends back in 2007. Being fond of nature and all things that encompass outdoor adventure, we were thrilled to discover this gem of a getaway within a few short hours drive away from our home in North Texas. As the beginning of empty nesting became a reality in 2019, we decided it was time to have a place of our own in this wonderful community. We located the perfect little slice of heaven on Carter Mountain backing up to the National Forrest just north of Hochatown and broke ground late in 2020. We finally completed our project this summer and we are excited to share our home away from home with you!
