About Amy Corley

The Corley Family purchased Birdsong Cabin in 2014. We have spent many family vacations on Lake LBJ and have made lots of memories near the water. We currently live in Georgetown, TX and travel to Lake LBJ whenever we get the chance. Of course, every trip we make includes our five toy dogs! We hope to share our slice of heaven with you!

Amy Corley purchased this house in 2014

Why Amy Corley chose Lake LBJ

Birdsong Cabin was built in the 1940's by an American Indian named Roy Birdsong. It belonged to his family, until we purchased it in 2014.The original cabin was completely torn down and a very similar replica, with updated features, was rebuilt by early 2015. This property is one of a kind b/c of the panoramic view of the cove around the island. It has 70'' of private waterfront with a new cement retaining wall. In the summer months, the sun sets behind the large ash trees, so you are shaded in the hottest part of the day!

What makes this house unique

Birdsong Cabin offers a fully fenced, large 1/3 acre lot for your kids and fur-babies to roam in. The private neighborhood boat ramp is about a 2 minute drive away, where you can launch your boat. Enjoy the serene setting of the cove while fishing or floating on your raft, or head out towards open water, which is less than a 5 minute ride by boat.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

I was so pleasantly surprised with this property, the views and amenities exceeded my expectations. The owner from the start to end was very accommodating and quick to respond to my inquiries. We had everything we needed and then some. Highly recommend this property. My family and I were very impressed and had the best stay.

We had a Merry Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We, 3 adults/3 dogs, stayed at Birdsong Cabin over Christmas 2016. It was a good choice. It was very clean and comfortable. The owners were immediately responsive on our one small problem and helpful in so many ways. We prepared all our meals and the kitchen had what we needed to do that. The yard was the best part. The dogs enjoyed squirrel watching and a trip to the island in the middle of the small elbow of the Colorado River that runs in front of the cabin. The fence kept all but our most agile dog in, she had added squirrel incentive in the next yard and managed to clear the fence at the water's edge. We put up a small temporary barricade and had no more problems. If you have a jumper the fence may be just a little short for you in places. We hiked at Inks Lake and Longhorn Cavern which were both conveniently nearby. There was also a small store within a few miles so we did not need to go into town all week. We took a vote: Yes, we would love to stay here again. Thank you Amy.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of eight ladies that get together twice a year, so we have rented a lot of properties. Everyone agreed, this was the best we had stayed at. The living areas were nice and roomy, the kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfy and the two outside areas were great. It was also very quiet and peaceful. We will definitely be back!

Modern Well-Appointed One Story

  • 5 of 5

The owners take good care of this property and have paid attention to details in their remodel - everything feels brand new inside. The back and side patios both have lake views and enough furniture for the 8 people max and the large yard is really a selling point for this property. We had 2 couples in their 60's and one in their late 30's and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. The house has 3 adult beds that are all comfortable and that is a rare thing among rental houses - it seems like there is always 2 good rooms and the 3rd room is a bunk room - nobody in our party was going to be climbing up in a bunk. The house was pretty clean though I saw hair in the showers, but honestly I find that at every 4star hotel - maids are always in a hurry. Amy was kind enough to make sure a comforter was washed ahead of time for us since my husband suffers from allergies to everything including cats and dogs. We normally can't stay anywhere that allows pets, but since there are concrete floors throughout and fresh linens and a leather couch; the dander was minimal. The maids should stop using the scented fabric softener. The kitchen is great for preparing dinner and setting up a buffet line. We found almost everything we needed in the kitchen except for measuring cups and teaspoons The cabinets and drawers are labeled, which is helpful. Both bathrooms have nice showers and I really appreciated all the extra hooks. You won't find a bathtub, but the kitchen sink was large enough to bath my 8month old baby. The only thing missing in the bathrooms (or anywhere in the house for that matter) is a box of tissues. They did have plenty of toilet paper and paper towels for more than 2 nights. It was easy to drive over to Log Country Cove to rent boats - we rented for 24hrs and tied up at the house so we could come and go as we wished. The only thing I can complain about is the price of this house (with extra fees - $60 Homeaway + $130 cleaning + tax) as I realized after I booked that the cabins at Log Country Cove reduce their rates on Sept 1st so it would have been significantly cheaper to stay there at this point in the fall. However, since I have a crawling baby who is pulling up on everything, but not yet walking I do think a one-story house is safer and easier and all of the cabins are multi-level. Bottom line is everyone was impressed with the property & had fun.
