My wife and I along with our two children (2 years old and 6 months old) were only in the Dallas area for a few days (we now live out of state), and we needed a place to stay where we could spend some time with my parents who drove up from Houston to see us. Winding Ridge was perfect! It fit all six of us comfortably and proved to be a wonderfully peaceful, rustic, yet elegant place for us to spend time together. We will definitely go there again if we get the chance.
