Nothing but peace and quiet, with no interruptions.  All the time in the world to concentrate on your favorite hobby, be that scrapbooking, quilting, reading, jewelry making or simply kicking back & relaxing!  Or possibly shop 'til you drop in nearby Canton.  We'll do the cooking and cleaning, you have the fun.  

In between you can also Watch Movies, Sit a Spell in the Porch Swing or enjoy the outdoor fireplace area.  We also have a Massage Therapist on call, typically on Saturday afternoon.

If you plan on remaining "connected" via internet, please be aware we do not provide WiFi.  Feel free to bring your own mobile hot spots devices as they have been proven effective in our rural setting.  AT&T is definitely effective here.

We strive to make your visit restful & refreshing.  Ragle's Retreat is a little piece of East Texas Heaven nestled in the trees.  Come enjoy!

Lovingly decorated with family heirlooms, Ragle's Retreat will make you feel as though
you've come home to Grandma & Grandpa's.
