Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband and I have been married for 38 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 8 yr. old grandson. We enjoy boating on Lake Whitney with our family & friends every chance we get.

Why the Owner Chose Clifton, TX, USA:
This property is next door to our personal home and is perfect for for when we entertain family and friends. Everyone has a nice comfortable place to stay. It also has plenty of parking for boats, jet skis and circle drive-way for easy in and out. We have been coming to Lake Whitney and Laguna Park in particular since the mid 1970's. My husband use to ride motorcross 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 Hillsboro and Waco. And just a little over an hour to downtown Dallas & Ft. Worth. We purchased this home because we love the location. It has a panoramic view of the lake & cliffs. We enjoy sitting outside and watching the boats & water skiers. It is a great place for our family and friends to stay when our home cannot accommodate everyone. Or, they need a place to relax, have fun & getaway.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sunset Cove Cabin has some of the best lake views around. Relax with a glass of wine and watch the sunset from the back yard swing. You can walk down to the lake from the back of the house and fish or go for a swim. We enjoy watching the many species of birds, especially the cardinals. There are also ducks and geese and sometimes in early spring, pelicans pass through. The raccoon's and squirrels are fun to watch as well. You may see one of the many fox that pass through behind the house near the lake. Deer can be spotted across the cove from the back porch too. Just sitting on the back porch watching the boats pass is fun and relaxing. If you like to star gaze this is the perfect place, no city lights! We offer 4 and 8 hour pontoon boat rental to our guests. Please call or e-mail for details and to check availability.
