Tool house description

MARGLO'S Cottage has it all! Whether you're looking to get away from the hustle & bustle of the city, or a quiet, relaxing & serene vacation or maybe a 'romantic getaway', or a fun-filled family vacation... THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!

Inviting and beautifully decorated 2 bedroom, 2 bath, wide open waterfront property on Cedar Creek Lake. Located on large, heavily-treed, 2-1/2 lots, this charming cottage will play host to a fun-filled and yet relaxing vacation. The cottage has access to the community's private boat ramp for launching boats &/or personal water craft. Enjoy the well-equipped kitchen which opens to eat-in-dining and 2 living areas, all with fabulous panoramic views of the lake! Also take advantage of 180 degree views from the observation deck off the large 2-tiered dock! Enjoy cozy nights by the campfire or a glass of wine on the dock. Whatever you do, you will surely enjoy our beautiful and relaxing setting that only a true lake retreat can provide. Complete with deck seating and lovely swimming hole!

Both bedrooms are equipped with queen size pillow-top beds, each with additional 2-1/2 inch memory foam toppers, down comforters and 400 thread count cotton linens. The living areas have queen size pullout sofas complete with linens for each. Two TV's with cable and DVD players are located in the 2 living areas along with a variety of cards and games both for adults & children. You'll also find magazines, binoculars, utensils for making s'mores, beach towels, 'noodles' for swimming, umbrellas, picnic tables, lounge chairs for your pleasure.

Paper towels, toilet paper, plastic storage bags, plastic trash bags, dish & laundry detergent are provided for at least a weekend stay as well. All you need are your clothes & the food you want to eat. Brookshire's grocery store is just a 5 min. drive to stock up with anything you might want for your meals. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware and dinnerware and there is an outdoor propane grill for your use.

If you wish to bring your boat or pwc, you will be able to launch your boat at our private community boat ramp. Our property has ample space for parking your boat or pwc trailer. Our pier and dock is complete with mooring whips to tie up your boat or pwc's (max weight of 10,000#'s) during the day. Renting a boat can easily be accommodated @ Don's Port Marina just South of the cottage in Tool.

Our cottage is located on the West side of the lake (a short 1 hr. drive from Dallas) in a restricted subdivision in Tool, TX, complete with a full-time police force, fire department, emergency service, city water and sewer; i.e., NO SEPTIC TANK to contend with.

Our property is a SMOKE FREE and PET-FREE environment, so NO PETS or SMOKING are ALLOWED.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  Why the Owner Chose Tool:
                  We bought our place in August 1997 for a peaceful 'getaway' from the stress of working & living in the city. In 2003 we relocated our permanent residence outside of the city and found our new residence to be our permanent 'getaway'. We contemplated selling our lake house, but in 2000 our 1st grandchild was born & has spent so much of his life @ the lake that he would not hear of our selling it. We now have 4 grandchildren & it is now our getaway to enjoy with our children & grandchildren. However, as the grandchildren are becoming more & more involved in sports & other activities, we don't spend as much time @ the lake. So, we decided to place our property on VRBO in January 2009 for others to enjoy as much as we all do. The ones who have rented our place have been very complimentary & we have enjoyed sharing our place with them. It has been a pleasant experience.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  What I enjoy most is getting up early in the morning & going out to the dock to watch the sunrise. It is so peaceful & serene at that time. The birds & wildlife come to life at that time. I also enjoy sitting out on the top deck @ sunset....nothing better than sipping a glass wine & overlooking the beautiful sunsets in the afternoon. The cottage is right on a deep water & wide open cove, great for all water sports. Unlike so many places whenever there is a drought, we have always had good water & never have had any problems getting our boat & pwc's in & out of the water. It is great for swimming & fishing as well. Thanks to our guests, their reviews describe the charm, beauty & fun to be had @ MarGlo's Cottage.
