Interior of Woodview looking towards the deck at the back of the cabin. Woodview cabin has a futon that makes into a double bed, a pretty ceiling fan and elevated ceiling.


The back deck of Woodview is a great place to curl up with a novel on a cool fall afternoon with a glass of wine in hand.  Or just a few steps away is a bench swing in an enormous old live oak tree.


Woodview Cabin has its own private shower bath


Time for a little seclusion and maybe a little romance?

Need a tranquil, serene getaway?

Perhaps a little time to get together with some old friends?

Trails West Retreat just might be your answer!



We mentioned curling up with a good book above.  Did you know that Betty is an author? She has published six books so far and is quite an historian.  Her last book is a novel based on facts she uncovered entitled The Secret Order.  You might want to take a look at it.

By now almost everyone has heard about Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. The Secret Order has many similarities to Brown's novel because both authors used the same source material, however, Betty's novel was actually published prior to Brown's novel. Betty had never read any of his books prior to publication of her own novel. And unlike Brown's novel, if you love feel good endings and a brighter viewpoint on life, you definitely should treat yourself to The Secret Order.

 You can order it directly from the publisher at Search their catalouge by putting in Betty Meischen. It also makes a great gift to a friend who needs support or consolation.  Click on Betty's Books on the homepage to review all of Betty's books.  Also all of Betty's books are sold on Amazon and many other booksellers.
