With the open floor plan, the living room, kitchen and dinning rooms all offer great views of the lake through the wide sliding glass doors. These doors lead out to the large upper deck that stretches across the back of the house with a fantastic view of the lake. There is a spiral staircase that leads from this deck down to the large deck below where there is a charcoal BBQ grill, chimanea, table and chair set and plenty of extra seating & occasional tables. Off this deck there is a small covered area as well. Plenty of shade trees. This area is fenced. Through the gate, you can walk down to the water.
The living room has a leather sofa/sleeper & flat screen TV & gas fireplace.
The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal, you just bring food and refreshments. There is a refrigerator, Jenn-Aire cook top, oven, dishwasher, large pantry, pots & pans, bake ware, glassware, including stemware & cups, dishes, cooking and BBQ utensils, flatware etc. There is also a microwave oven, toaster, coffee pot and blender. It has a breakfast bar that seats four. The dinning room table seats four.
On one side of the home is a large master bedroom with a Texas style pine queen bed and side tables, futon that can sleep one adult or two children. View of lake. French doors lead out onto upper deck. Huge private master bath has jetted garden tub, walk in shower, large vanity with twin sinks. Large walk in closet stores extra linens.

Location

Great area for Motorcycle Riding around lake & surrounding area.

Lake Whitney is a great place to swim, ski and all boating and water sports.

We rent pontoon boats to our guests or you can leave the driving to someone else and hire someone to take you on a lake cruise to relax and enjoy the scenic beauty of the lake.

Fishing is great on Lake Whitney from the marina behind this home or you can go out with one of many Fishing Guides, call me for recommendation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My husband and I have been married for 37 years. We have one son and daughter-in-law and a very active 7 yr. old grandson. We enjoy boating on Lake Whitney with our family & friends every chance we get.

Why the Owner Chose Clifton, TX, USA:
We live just a few blocks away and it is perfect for when we entertain family and friends. Everyone has a nice comfortable place to stay when we have a full house. This home has a great view and since most all the homes sit on a bluff, as does this one, not many home is accessible to the lake. 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 became "weekenders" for awhile. We finally had an 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 is relaxed and friendly. it's close to Whitney, Hillsboro, Waco, Clifton and Meridian. And just a little over an hour to Dallas and Ft. Worth.

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, fox & raccoons is great entertainment. The night sky is wonderful for star gazing. It's close to nearby boat ramps and Uncle Gus Marina. We now offer 4 and 8 hour pontoon boat rental to our guests which includes gas. Call or e-mail for details and to check availability.
