Meet Kenny and Mary McDaniel, owners of McDaniel Vacation Properties on Caddo Lake and Galveston, Texas and in Mountain View, Arkansas. The McDaniels are not new to vacation rentals. Down to earth, family oriented folks, they believe in down-home values. If they give you their word, you can as they used to say, “take it to the bank.” Quality service is their priority. Here is their story in their own words.

Caddo Lake, Texas

In the spring of 1999, we purchased a fishing camp on beautiful Caddo Lake. After extensive remodeling and landscaping, we opened Shady Glade Resort. Our cafe, motel, RV park, fishing guides, and lake tours attracted a vast clientele for a chance to experience the mystical beauty, wildlife and serenity of Caddo Lake. Customer Service Guaranteed was, and remains, our #1 priority. We sold the property in 2008 and returned to the oil and gas business for several years. In December 2017, our hearts again turned toward Caddo Lake and helping families make memories that would last a lifetime. We, the McDaniel’s, promise to do anything that is legal to see that you, your friends, and family make those memories while enjoying McDaniel Vacation Properties.

Mountain View, AR

Mary and I love our life in East Texas. For 15 of those years we continued to visit Mountain View, AR as our get-away. We purchased 46 acres of land to develop with cabins in the mountains. Our first cabin, The Pine Cone Cabin, is now available. Others will follow. The Pine Cone Cabin promises plenty of privacy on a dead-end road three miles from downtown Mountain View. The Pine Cone Cabin renters will have six acres of hills and hollow to explore.

Mountain View is rich in folk music with Jam Sessions on the Courthouse Square and trout and small mouth bass waiting in the White River just five miles away. Guides, boats and float tubes are available. That’s only the beginning of activities for families.

The small town of Mountain View covers 2,860 acres with excellent eateries and shopping opportunities from your typical Wal-Mart to antique, other specialty shops and boutiques. The Ozark Folk Center State Park provides plenty for families to do including everything from the Flying Pig Zip Line to soap making, as well as blacksmithing, and so much more. The Ozark Folk Center State Park is full of fun things to see, touch and do for adults and children of all ages.

Galveston, Texas

Our newest addition is the beautiful condo in Galveston, Texas, a great family vacation environment. Strolling the historic downtown area or one of the many beaches, McDaniel Vacation Properties is proud to be the choice of condos.

​”We are family-oriented people ourselves. As we prepare our properties and resources, we think about what we and our children and grandchildren would enjoy.
