This cozy lake cottage is the perfect getaway! Just steps away from the water with a rock beach where you can go for a swim or go fishing. Gorgeous lake views can be found from inside, on the covered back deck, and the oversized backyard.
Lake Whitney has been officially recognized as the 'Getaway Capital of Texas' by the Texas Legislature. Lake Whitney is often compared to a Texas Hill Country lake, but without all the lake traffic and overbuilt lakeshores.
Lake Whitney's 23,500 surface acres of clear blue water and 225 miles of shoreline are sure to satisfy a broad variety of interests for those with recreational interest or just 'getting away'.
Our cottage is located on the South East side with easy access from the I-35 corridor and SH 22. We are just minutes from downtown Whitney with local shops and dining. Our location is less than a 90-minute drive from most DFW metropolis locations, under an hour from Waco, and no more than 2 hours from Austin. Better yet we are within a short drive to the Red Caboose Winery in Meridian, Waco's New Mammoth Park, mountain biking at Waco's Cameron Park, which is 'nationally recognized', Clifton's historical downtown, and much more!

The cottage sleeps a total of 6 people max. The living room has a large sofa, rocking chairs, and television that plays DVD's only. We do not offer cable or Wifi.

Beautiful little place
Planned a fishing trip, but found the cottage so relaxing that we ended up sitting around the fire and playing cards our entire stay.
Awesome little lake cottage!
Great location to meet between Austin and Dallas area for a friend reunion. Beautiful lake views, comfy and quiet! Large lawn area with walking access to lake.
Perfect Ladies Getaway
My friends and I planned a summer trip, but Hurricane Harvey had other ideas. Natalie was gracious enough to let us move the dates (almost last minute). The house was ideal for us, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen stocked with cooking utensils, the neighbors elderly golden lab was very friendly, and the sunsets were stunning.
We opted to go into downtown Whitney one day, and found they were having a sidewalk vendor sale. It may only be one block, but it was such a pleasant surprise! They apparently do these sidewalk sales several times throughout the year, so I highly recommend going to one.
My friends have already talked about when we will come back. Maybe next time it will be summer and we can get in the water. :)
A great girls weeeknd getaway!
We had a great time at the cottage. Everything was clean and just as described. We also spent time in the water which was great, down very steep steps but perfect on a 90 degree October day! Thank you! We enjoyed our first trip to Texas!
Peaceful & Beautiful
This cottage was the perfect getaway for a 4 day weekend! Clean, cute and comfortable! Less than 2 hours from DFW and right on Lake Whitney. Neighbors were nice and friendly! A beautiful piece of property! Owners were easy to work with and very responsive. Our family of 4 plus our 2 furry family members made great memories! We will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful time with the kids. Great location and enjoyed the nearby state parks.
