Meet your hosts

We're Virginia and Lily Moore. 

In the spring of 2019, we were visiting my (Lily's) hometown of Warren, Texas. My mom happened to mention to Virginia that the land across the street was for sale, so we hopped on Dad's ATV and went to explore. A couple of hours later while packing to head back to Houston, Virginia looked up at me and said, "I think we should make an offer on that property." We closed on Arrow Acres on May 17 and got engaged in the barn on the property that night. 

It didn't take long for Arrow Acres to become a place we wanted to share with people who needed a country haven to escape to, or a place for families like ours to gather and make memories --either in the form of reunions or birthday parties, or intimate weddings. So whatever brings you to Arrow Acres, be it the call of the wild or the celebrations of loved ones, we look forward to hosting you. 

Arrow Acres Fun Facts

The first concert we ever attended together was Kacey Musgraves at the Houston Livestock Show. We both really like her song "Follow Your Arrow," and the meaning behind the lyrics - be who you want to be, love who you love, throw caution to the wind, don't worry what people think. Just follow your arrow. 

Following the music theme, the houses are each named for a legendary woman in country music: Emmylou Harris, June Carter Cash, and Dolly Parton. 

When we bought the property, it was basically an undeveloped field with an empty barn. There was no electricity, no proper driveway, and no pond. 

The pond was a happy accident. We both really wanted a pond for us to eventually stock because we enjoy fishing. We weren't too sure what we were getting into when they started digging, but received the news that they hit six springs, leaving a natural, spring-fed pond on the property. 

Arrow Acres was developed in 4 months. 

There's an abandoned railroad trestle that creates our property line that remains from a railroad built in 1890. Note: You're free to explore back to the property line, but bring rubber boots, mosquito spray, and beware of snakes. We are not responsible for any accidents.
