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 allow 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!

Perfect little lake cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a cute little cabin and perfect for a weekend getaway. Decorated very cute and comfy beds. Wonderful little back porch to enjoy the mornings and evenings. Stocked with all the basics one needs for an enjoyable weekend. We had a couple questions upon arrival and Natalie was very quick to accommodate our requests. Incredible views of the lake. Access to the lake is a little walk down...but then you are in this little cove perfect for floating around, fishing, etc. We would definitely stay here again...Thanks for sharing your home!

Bad experience

  • 1 of 5

Although we had a great weekend and enjoyed our time as a family the trip ended with the owner not refunding our full deposit. The neighbors told her that we had 8 people staying in the house. That was not only incorrect but the owner would not discuss or believe us. It's a situation where they hold your deposit in good faith and can choose to take it if they want. We will return to vacation at Lake Whitney but not in this house or with HomeAway. It's a shame that people can be taken advantage of.

Owner's Response: It is a shame that people can try to take advantage of others. We have a strict 6 person policy that these guests admitted to breaking only after they were confronted. All of our policy’s are clearly stated in the contract as well as posted in the cottage. As you can see this is our first bad review in the 3 years we have rented out our cottage. Luckily we have had great and honest renters and have always refunded their deposits in full. We would never take advantage of any of our renters as you can see by the multiple repeat guests we have. We are happy that these guests enjoyed their weekend but disappointed in this review because they know that they broke the contract.

Cottage on the Water

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely perfect for a quick getaway from Dallas. Took us 1.5 hours from Addison to get to the cottage. The view along the hillside is amazing and the property is perfect for BBQ, relaxing, fishing. Everything we needed was already at the cottage. I would highly recommend this property!

Wonderful holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time! Didn't do a lot but sat on the back porch, rested and enjoyed the view. It was the perfect getaway for my husband, our best friends and me. The cove had very nice swimming although I will admit the climb back up may be a bit tough for those over 60, lol. Nice neighbors and beautiful sunsets. We would love to return sometime. Owner was very quick to return my deposit when we left the place clean. Very comfy beds and kitchen was well supplied. We had a great time!
