About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath, waterfront on a private cove.

This is a lovely three bedroom, two bath cottage located on the waterfront of Lake Granbury, within Indian Harbor, a private and gated community. This home is located on a private cove with a large covered boat dock that will easily accommodate 8-10 people. Great fishing off the dock with rope swing when you need to cool off! Launch your boat or jet ski's at our private marina. Our boat house has power lift for a boat and 2 jet ski's. In addition to the rope swing, there is a paddle boat to enjoy in the private cove. Enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the large wrap-around porch with tables and chairs that will accommodate 10 people easily. While you hang out under the covered wrap-around porch, enjoy a game of bags or washers with the kids, both included. There is a large, gated yard and pets (dogs only) are welcome. There is a large covered carport for two cars and a long driveway that will hold an additional 4 cars. In addition to the private boat dock, there is a private marina and cafe in Indian Harbor to launch a boat for free. This cottage is sure to bring back memories of childhood with the decor in the home. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cooking supplies. Amenities also include a washer and dyer in the home. There is a beautiful sun room with a table for 6 with french doors looking out across the lake.

Get away from it all at Firefly Cottage, a one story house in a gated, lakeside community 6.8 miles from downtown Granbury or the lakeside beach. Surrounded by trees on a quiet cul-de-sac, the cottage has a beautiful, serene view of the water. It's perfect for a romantic getaway or a relaxing overnight with the family at the lake.The community marina, boat ramp, and cafe are nearby. Dine on site in the fully equipped kitchen or experience Granbury’s fine restaurants. Relax on the porch or on the covered boat dock while fishing and listen to the birds, ducks, and geese as they land in the private cove where you are staying. Located right outside of the city, you can do what your heart desires. From hiking, biking, swimming, shopping, golfing, or just reading and relaxing, there are endless possibilities! Come enjoy Granbury, the lake, and the solitude of Firefly Cottage. Venture off for the day to explore Dinosaur Valley State Park in nearby Glen Rose. Come see the live theater performance of The Promise in the outdoor theater.

Firefly Cottage has three bedrooms. The Master bedroom houses a King size bed and bath. The Kid's Room has a full size bed, located next to the Master bedroom and close to the kitchen. The third bedroom, called Lake View Room, has a queen size bed, bathroom, and has bay windows that look out over the lake. The living room has a pull-out sleeper sofa that will accommodate sleeping for two. There is also another couch in the living room if someone would like to sleep on the couch and there are also two blow-up air mattresses along with two sleeping bags to use if needed. There are fresh linens in the closet in the living room to use and towels are provided in each bathroom. Please bring your own towels for outside use.

Enjoy a fire in the fire pit pit that can be moved into the yard. Games of bags and washers are available and there is a grill outside for those outdoor grilling experiences.

Firefly was everything we'd hoped for and More!

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where to start......Oh yes, We had an absolute blast! We were looking for a midway point (relaxing and fun) for the 3 sister's (and one of their hubby's) to get together, a go to place for now and the future. We found it here! Lesli and Mike were amazing hosts making sure we felt welcome from the moment we walked through the door. The great thing about this spot is you can be as fun seeking or laid back as you want! We did both! You have to go to the square downtown and stop by the German restaurant, tell them we recommended you. It was hot and humid the day we went downtown to antique but they were dog friendly and even had a bowl of fresh water for my beloved Aspen by the time we stepped into the patio area for dining. Aspen is my Heeler/Aussie rescue who's learning life is pretty darn good with the right humans :) Back to Firefly, can't say enough about the shade, peace, and tranquility but really have to get to the fishing. We love to fish! Something Dad taught us as little girls and we remembered him fondly on this trip. We weren't sure how good it would be given it the middle of June in Texas but we went into it full force and weren't dissapointed! Caught some really nice catfish, there's a channel that runs straight out from the dock, you can see it. We also caught Perch, Crappie, Bass and the one big honkin' bass that "got away" (we named him Charlie) Don't under estimate the shallow water off the dock that's where Charlie came in and his legend was born! We'll be back! Thank you Lesli and Mike for sharing with us!

Nice place. Very clean and quiet. We all enjoyed it.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Firefly Cottage, the only reason it didn't give it a 5 star was not the because of the property, but because Lake Granbury's water level was so low we couldn't get to the lake house by water, to put the boat in the dock slip. But every thing else about the property was great.

Great lakeside cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Firedly cottage is a great lakeside getaway. We had coffee on the dock every morning and enjoyed the lake view. It has everything you need to enjoy lake activities but we came to play cards and relax. It’s a perfect getaway for both. We’ll definitely come back again.
