"This well-appointed, and immaculately clean home was perfectly located for our recent visit to the Dallas/Arlington area for the Cotton Bowl. The home is right off the freeway in a safe residential neighborhood with easy access to Jerry's World, great restaurants, and is not too far from downtown Dallas. We don't believe the posted photographs (poor lighting) does it justice because the interior was much nicer than we expected. The only negative aspect of our trip is that it was cold and rainy the entire time, which did not allow us to use the backyard pool and grilling area, which would have been a wonderful space to hang out in and enjoy being outside during our holiday weekend. The highlight of our trip, besides the MSU Spartans' victory over Baylor, was the ease in working with Rebecca. She is incredibly accommodating and met every request of ours. If the Spartans ever make it back to AT&T Stadium for a Cotton Bowl or National Championship, this is without a doubt the place that we'll stay."

"My friends and I stayed here for a 4th of July long weekend and had a blast! All major amenities that we needed were provided (dinnerware, utensils, blankets, towels, haircare products, soap, etc.) and the large kitchen area allowed us to fully stock the fridge/freezer and cook every meal we needed on-site. The porches upstairs and downstairs were perfect for just hanging out or grilling, and the expansive lawn was great for putting down a blanket and looking up at the stars at night. The lake was also fantastic- the water wasn’t too hot or cold and there was a nice cliff for jumping off; the only con was trying to make our way up and down the steep rocks to the water, which could be a bit intimidating (especially at night). Other than that, the lone drawback from this location is that the closest grocery store is 20-30 min away, so I would advise stopping at the store on your way to the house vs. waiting until after you’ve arrived. Overall, I definitely recommend this rental and would love to go back again next summer!"

"A great place. I wish we had a reason to stay longer. The place is quiet and comfortable and located in a safe neighborhood. Plenty of restaurants within an easy walk or short Uber ride. We wish we could have enjoyed the outside patio but Mother Nature was not cooperating during our visit. Easy check in and check out. I would stay here again and have no hesitation to recommend it."

"We cant begin to express our gratitude for an amazing family getaway. The moment you drive up to the cottage on the lake, life all of a sudden just seems so simple. You are greeted upon arrival with the soft sounds of music and the smell of basil and lavender that only the finest 5 star resorts in Austria can offer . Somehow Michael and Ron make this happen in Texas. It honestly is like the moment you walk through the perfectly decorated cottage you are transported to a cottage in the Alps . You cant help but take a deep breath and literally all worries simply fade away . Your eyes slowly make their way to the most breathtaking view of the lake .. you cant help but open the back door and take in the lush mystical lakefront that invites you to your private dock . You pass a perfect firepot for a night of SMORES and Stories and you make your way to the PERFECT DOCK … Which has kayaks and paddles for every age . There also is the perfect set of outdoor teak furniture with umbrella for an amazing lake side lunch or dinner . Also 4 loungers if you are the sun bathing kind. The water is SIMPLE perfect in this area of the lake with a nice sandy bottom that is fantastic on your feet . I could have sat there for 2 hours at that moment but we have a 6 and 8 year old and they were running back to the house because they were ready to jump in that lake . On the way back up to the house a 10 sec walk mind you … I noticed that they have life vests for every shape and size as well . Not to mention every outdoor game from horseshoes to croquet . There isn’t a detail that is forgotten .After opening the door back to the cottage I am suddenly again greeted with the 5 star luxury feeling and again a deep breath just cant be helped . I venture into the kitchen where I am started unloading our food … where SURPRISE in the frig is ORGANIC farm FRESH eggs from their chicken & ducks … Around the corner I am greeted by a “SMORES ” kit where I find my daughter with a big grin holding the HUGE CHOCOLATE bar & bag of marshmallows… she lets out a holler and says THIS IS THE BEST PLACE EVER . I just half to laugh and say ..YES YES IT IS !!!!,There are surprises around every corner of the magical cottage . You can feel Michaels and Ron’s impeccable attention to detail and the care that each and every guest feels like they are truly IMPORTANT to them .
From milking the Goats with Eric who’s zest for life and knowledge about organic farming is simply wonderful . SIMPLY AMAZING !"
