"MY FAMILY AND I STAYED AT THE REDBIRD LODGE FOR JUST ABOUT 4 DAYS. WE DROVE IN FROM THE HOUSTON, TEXAS AREA AND ARRIVED LATE AT NIGHT. WE MADE IT IN AND GOT SETTLED AND HAD A LOOK AROUND THE PLACE AND AFTER WAKING UP THE NEXT MORNING WE WERE AMAZED AT ALL WE HAD MISSED AND OVERLOOKED MAKING IT IN DURING THE NIGHT. THERE WERE 16 OF US AND WE COULD HAVE HAD A FEW MORE FIT COMFORTABLY. THE ADULTS WERE LIKE KIDS ON A REAL VACATION! EVERYTHING YOU COULD THINK OF WAS THERE FOR YOUR DISPOSAL. WE WENT TO GET GROCERIES FOR THE WEEKEND AND WERE ABLE TO COOK FOR THE ENTIRE GROUP, THUS SAVING MONEY AND HAD AN OPTION TO EAT OUT BY THE POOL OR IN THE DINING ROOM AS A FAMILY. THE KIDS FELL IN LOVE WITH THE CAT ON THE PROPERTY AND WE HAVE ALL DISCUSSED COMING BACK DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS TO REALLY ENJOY THE FRESH COUNTRY BREEZE! WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK SOON! THANKS DEBBIE FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP WITH GETTING THINGS TOGETHER FOR MY FAMILY'S ARRIVAL AND BROTHERS WEDDING REHEARSAL DINNER IN THE BARN WAS SUCH A MAGICAL EVENING TO ADD TO SUCH AN ALREADY MAGICAL WEEKEND. THANK YOU ISN'T EVEN ENOUGH TO SHOW OUR GRATITUDE! MANY BLESSINGS!!!"

"The cottage was unavailable, so we rented cabin #1 and #2. The accommodations were clean, cozy, and restful. The proprietors were very friendly and helpful. They even offered to take us on a boat ride. The area was quiet with a great cove and swimming dock. We will be back!"

"What a nice place to relax and such nice people! Mary Ann and Vinney were more than awesome and made us feel welcome and at home. The welcome basket and lovely bottle of wine was such a nice touch. Hope to be back soon. The place was super clean and easy to find. The dock was easy to use as this was a no wake zone and the launch was just a stone's throw away. Wonderful place and highly recommended!! :-)"

PERFECT Family Reunion House - Couldn't ask for more!
"I don't know where to begin. We have rented many condos from VRBO in other states, but making the reservations with Janae and all the transactions were the smoothest we've ever had. Her "Gathering Cottage" is a HOME with everything anyone would want, plus many extras. The views are fantastic. I normally don't write reviews (good or bad), but this house and the "Blue House" next door which we also rented were perfect for our large gathering. At one point on Saturday we had 31 family members at both houses, ages from 1 yr to 80. Not all spent the night, but the large amount that did had plenty of places to sleep and with central A/C in big house, it was very very comfortable and no one was cramped at all. My husband & I got the master BR and the mattress on the bed is the best we have ever slept in, including our own! Our 80 yr old Uncle had no problem walking across the lawn to the Gathering House. The slight incline to the water's edge was nothing and the boat dock was used everyday (all day) for fishing, swimming, boating and seadoo.
The pool table, games & TV's in up & downstairs were much appreciated. We had so many compliments regarding the houses and the location, that we are planning our next year reunion already at this same place. The neighborhood is quiet and is very convenient to Cahoots convenience store for anything forgotten. I hesitate going on & on about how happy and pleased we all were with the houses for fear they won't be available when we want them :)
Thank you Janae for allowing us in your beautiful houses and our family reunion being the best one yet. I will be discussing with you soon about next year renting. Thanks again."
