Why Paul Johnson chose Morgan
We are fans of Mid-Century Modern styles and fell in love with this home as soon as we toured it. Purchased from a former boot maker, we enjoyed the challenges of transforming this house from a craftsman's workshop to the cozy retreat it is today. We believe you'll enjoy the peaceful settings as much as we do!
What makes this House unique
Property is at the end of a cul-de-sac, private, quiet, and peaceful. The Canyons at Whitney is a small residential community that has a full time security guard that patrols daily and is a member of the volunteer fire department. Abundant hiking trails and are great for mountain biking. Great bird watching, plentiful wild life, and serene location. Lots of parking and very little traffic.

Had a great time with family.
Was a beautiful location. Very quiet and peaceful. Ample amenities. Would have given 5 stars except for a couple of items: 1) water pressure in downstairs shower was very low, & 2) some of the furniture needs attention. Otherwise our family had a wonderful experience and the owners were very accommodating. Would definitely go again if down that way.
The house was so amazing... the owner was super nice and very informative. Would HIGHLY reccomend!
A relaxing stay in a beautiful location.
The area is beautiful with scenic overlooks, hummingbirds and cardinals flying around constantly, and pleasant hikes to the nearby lake. The house was spacious and comfortable with all of the amenities you could ask for. The only downside was the internet and phone service- signal strength is nonexistent for most phone providers in this area and the MiFi internet hotspot was too slow to stream movies and even access many sites. If you are wanting to get off the grid for a while this is perfect and we were able to work around it by streaming films in low quality while nobody else was connected to the network. It is definitely not a dealbreaker and the hosts were very helpful when we had trouble with the WiFi password. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly.
Relaxing home away from home lake style
Sipping coffee on the porch watching the sunrise over the Lake Whitney bluffs was so peaceful. The house was stocked with everything you could ask for making the stay relaxing and perfect the family always on the go.
Cousins Weekend Get-Away
We enjoyed your home. We had 8 ladies enjoying a little get-a-way. It was very accommodating. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, bowls and plates. We did plenty of cooking. We spent a whole lot of time on the balcony overlooking the cliffs. The weather was perfect for being outside. We drove to Waco one day and Clifton another day. Clifton is a wonderful town. The Red Caboose Winery is a great place to visit too.
Stylish, Eclectic, Modern, Comfortable Home
This was the perfect house for our girls trip! We came to Lake Whitney to celebrate my cousins Bachelorette party. She was looking for a fun, laid back atmosphere and this house was the ideal spot! Plus, it has AMAZING views! Thank you Paul and Barbara for letting us enjoy your home!
Our home is located on the south west side of Whitney Lake on the end of a cul de sac. A wrap around deck provides a peaceful view of the lake and the canyons. 40 miles from Waco in the Texas Hill Country where limestone formations abound and the cliffs overlooking the lake provide a wonderful escape!
