              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: My husband and I have been married for 35 years. We commute from our office in Midlothian to our home at Lake Whitney each day. We have one son, a daughter-in-law and an adorable & active 5 yr. old grandson. We enjoy boating on Lake Whitney with our family & friends every chance we get.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Whitney:
              We have been coming to Lake Whitney and Laguna Park in particular since the mid 1970's. My husband use to ride motocross in Whitney and we enjoyed staying at the state park and lodges in the area. After we married and had our son we enjoyed coming here to fish and go boating. We purchased a cabin and became 'weekenders' for awhile. We finally had the opportunity to move here full time in 2003. We love the scenic beauty of the area. The lake is clear and clean. It's a great lake for water sports and fishing. The lifestyle here is relaxed and laid back. The people are friendly. It's near Whitney, Hillsboro and Waco. And just a little over an hour to downtown Dallas. We purchased this home because it's so cozy, comfortable, with beautiful lake views and lake access. It's just a few blocks from our home. A great place for family and friends to stay when we have a crowd or if they need a place to go to relax and getaway.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Lakeside Cottage is a cozy home in a quiet neighborhood. It backs up to Lake Whitney and is shady, private and peaceful. Gorgeous lake view's from most every room. You'll want to spend your time on the upper or lower deck watching the boats pass by. You can walk from the back yard down to the lake for a swim or great fishing. Watching the birds, squirrels, & raccoons is great entertainment. The night sky is wonderful for star gazing. It's close to nearby boat ramps and Uncle Gus Marina.
