Melissa Lara is a "Native Houstonian" who grew up on the South side of Houston. Spending most of her time looking at old homes with her Aunt Janice she appreciated the special architectural features such as molding, glass door knobs, and old wood floors or even chipped away painted columns. No matter how bad the house looked she always saw the “True Soul of the Home,” as if it still looked like it did in its old glory days. Every weekend her Aunt Janice would pick her up and together they would drive through River Oaks and The Heights area in Houston to find antique and vintage items. Sometimes the items were broken but it didn’t matter because together they both always found a way to reuse it. Many times some of the items would just get boxed up and saved for a rainy day project. Her Aunt Janice was a Manager for Neiman Marcus back in the 70’s and although her passion was sales her Aunts bigger passion was junking and finding reuses of treasures. Spending time with her Aunt Janice taught her a lot about recycling and appreciating the reuses of everyday materials we take for granted. Melissa twirled herself wherever permitted and threw herself into her best talent "Art." Eventually she followed her Aunt Janice's footsteps where she graduated from college with a Bachelors in Business and embarked a career in Sales and Real Estate. After deciding it was time for a change an idea was born and Melissa decided to take a leap and follow her passion to find a cabin near the lake and transform it back to its glory days. And with that Melissa got to work, got inspired, shopped all over Livingston finding just those special type of items. As you walk around the house you will find some unusual pieces, some might leave you a little puzzled too, many have stories, or came out of old school houses, meat markets, or courthouses from Livingston Original Stores. She finally was able to scratch out off her bucket list creating the cutest cabin Lake Livingston would ever see. It took six months to get “Little Tim’s Inn,” back into shape again and make it something more and special. “Little Tim’s Inn,” was created in 2015 and named after the first letter of her kids names. The cabin has brought a sense of tranquility, a place to go and relax, sitting on a quiet street almost nestled there on its own. Every day you can see the same birds visiting as if it were a local Starbucks! At night the stars shine so bright and if you’re really quiet you can hear the fish jumping out of the lake. “Little Tim’s Inn,” is a soothing place, a special one at that. Hope you decide to book and see the feeling described. The purpose of “Little Tim’s Inn,” was to be the place to reunite the family, make lifetime memories, eat, play, but just love the time we take for granted in our lives... create a story in this home. Enjoy!
