Working on the assumption that you already have internet access at the 
property in question, I do wonder whether you might be better off with 
something network-based rather than phone based. You should be able to 
pick up a network temperature sensor relatively inexpensively, which you 
could in turn use to fire HTTP requests to a server under your control 
(even if it's at your home). You could then store temperature stats in a 
database and set up your own triggers to <do something> as and when they 
drop below a certain threshold.

In my $dayjob I've set up a number of similar systems at bird hides in 
various national parks/wetlands here in the UK for similar purposes 
(with the addition of the ability to pull off CCTV images). These are 
running programmable ICs which make a simple HTTP call to a webserver 
running SQL over a 3G data SIM every hour. I doubt it'd be difficult for 
you to knock up something similar for your property.
