    Everything about our stay was perfect!

    The house and the grounds are better than described and the communication with the host couldn’t be easier. An ideal location for a meet in the middle rendezvous between Houston and Dallas.

  • Perfect for our family!


    My husband and I brought our 4 kids (ages 11, 4 and 2) and 2 dogs. Everyone had the best time ever. The weather wasn't the best, but even with rain, it was amazing. We got to hang out and play outside, enjoy the quiet time, and make good food. It was perfect. The house is well stocked, the home owner is easy going and welcoming, and he clearly puts thought and care into the comfort of his guests. We will 100% be going back. Thanks a lot Ed!

    Great cottage with so many fun activities. Boathouse and pier were big hit allowing fishing and kayaking. Lots of perch & kids enjoyed.
