About the property

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 includes a separate bedroom with 1 king size bed and 1 full size bed. There is also a Queen size bed in an open floor living room/bedroom combo. 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. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal, you just bring food and refreshments. There is a refrigerator, electric cook top and oven, pots & pans, 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 seats four. Please note that there is no dishwasher or washer/dryer. The bathroom includes a single sink and standup shower. We include all linens, pillows, bath towels, and beach towels for your convenience. We have also included an inside/outside CD/ radio for your listening pleasure. We also provide an assortment of DVD's as well as books to enjoy during your stay.

With the open floor plan, the living room, kitchen and dinning room all offer views of the lake through the large windows and French doors. These doors lead out to the covered back deck with Adirondack benches. Overlooking the oversized backyard where there is a charcoal BBQ grill, fire pit, table and chair set, picnic table and plenty of extra seating with a bench swing hanging from a large oak.

We are a pet-friendly residence however we do not aloow pets on the furniture. There is no fenced in yard so pets will need to be on a leash while outside. A house broken pet is allowed inside (max 2 small/medium 'non-agressive breed' / E-MAIL OWNER PET DETAILS). Pet fee of $25.00.

Great views, access to the lake, and plenty of room to relax make this a great place to escape from it all!

Pure peace

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage on the Cove proved to be a little bundle of peace and tranquility in four walls. It even seemed to anticipate our needs; there were a few small items we forgot, and as soon as we realized it, it seems we would just turn around and the Cottage would say "Here you go"!

There are many, many options for staying at Lake Whitney, but we will never consider any option other than the Cottage on the Cove.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great. Everything we needed was available for us to use! It rained the whole time so we really didn't get to spend time on the lake but we did try to fish a little when the rain let up!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly what my wife and I were hoping it would be: a quiet place to get away with our dogs and relax. The backyard is great for lounging in the chairs by the fire pit and watching the sunset.There's water access in a nice protected cove just steps away. While there was no wifi or cable (a plus in our book), the owner does provide a DVD player and a collection of movies and books. The grocery and convenience stores are just a short drive away if you need to pick something up.The neighbors were really nice as well. We would definitely come back for another visit.

Very nice and well kept cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The location and view was awesome. Size of property was perfect and neighbors were great people. We popped a lot of fireworks on the fourth, the next morning we went swimming in the cove, ran to Waco to watch a movie, and that night started a fire and made smores. The last day we lounged and watched movies until we left. Do not get cable or wifi. We enjoyed not having them while we were there. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and would love to use it again on our next vacation.

Second time at Cottage on the Cove

  • 5 of 5

We've enjoyed many great getaways at VRBO properties but this place is the only one we've stayed at more than once! We love it. It's an easy getaway from the DFW area and we just love the cabin and the view. The owner is very responsive and accommodating and we appreciate all the nice touches in this adorable cabin - from the high quality bedding and towels to the well stocked kitchen and Weber charcoal grill. Everything has been neat and clean on both our visits and our deposit was promptly refunded each time. Thanks so much Natalie for sharing your awesome cabin! We can't wait to come back.

Cabin Review - Lake Whitney - you should really go!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great getaway and enjoyed the cabin rental! The late check out option is a definite MUST so you can lounge around and not rush to pack up & head out. The beds were comfortable with nice linens. We probably enjoyed the fire pit and the view the most. We also took advantage of the Charcoal Grill and had a fun day excursion into Hico to eat & shop. Most of our meals we cooked at the cabin which was so convenient.

Very nice neighbors.

A quiet, restful retreat!

Reservations were easy to obtain and we hope to visit again!
