Winter with its electrical storm shows to be seen across the lake and the waves on the lake that inspire wind and kite surfers. Spring with buds on trees and wild flowers. Having the lake high is great, but really, I like some extra beach - way more to explore for the adults and the matter the age! One of the best fishing spots is righ When we first purchased the property, it was a small 2,000 square foot 1.5 bath home we called the “Love Shack” after the popular song by the B-52s. We renamed it for Donna’s mother who is Italian as Casa d’Amore when we rebuilt this family home. We never expected to leave the house however we were called to start a youth ministry not far from here. We know Casa d’Amore is meant to be a FAMILY home. A place to make memories and have opened it up as a vacation home for your family to make memories here too as well as be refreshed and renewed by the beauty that exists. We left this beautiful custom home to start a nonprofit ranch called Hearts Landing Ranch not far from here. We focus on at risk youth (who have suffered trauma) using “ranch therapy” which includes anything you could do on a ranch while developing lifelong skills and a sense of community and responsibility. Horses and the tractor seem to be the biggest draw. Every time someone stays at Casa d’Amore, loves it and shares with others to stay here, it both directly and indirectly supports what we do at the Ranch. Your care for this home and your help here also helps us focus on the Ranch and the kids. Please remember to treat it with respect as if it were your own and better! As with any household, there are a few rules and procedures that will make your environment more comfortable and ensure the comfort of future guests and our neighbors!!! What you do impacts us, future guests and our neighbors.
