We loved the house, it fit our needs perfectly. The community is quiet and the highway noise, while noticable, wasn't enough to interrupt the serenity. If we are returning to this area in the future, we hope to stay at the Cottonwood Cottage again.

Loved being on the water and was very nice to have dishwasher, washer and dryer. We had everything we needed in this charming space. And you don't feel like the neighbors are on top of you. We thought it was a nice value for the money.

I had a job in the areas for 2 days and needed a place for me and 2 of my guys. This being right by the lake with a slip meant I could bring the boat and take them out after work! Don’t let the other reviews fool you the ac works great once you let the house cool down froze us out at night! I am definitely going to plan a vacation for the family soon here!

It is a small place as stated. We liked the coziness! Had everything we needed. The highlight is the outside. Large year, available paddle boards, grill, per friendly. The water directly in front is quite murky so we did not swim right in front of the house. Charming and relaxing. The only thing is the air conditioning was lacking. It really didn’t cool down. I know it’s Texas in summer but it was uncomfortable. Everything else was great!
Thank you for your review, Angela, we’re glad you were able to enjoy your stay. We sincerely apologize that the air conditioning did not cool the home as much as you would like. Since it is a mini split unit, it may struggle during hot Texas days. We have passed your feedback along to our property manager so the can work with the owner of the home to make any upgrades where available. We hope to have the opportunity to truly impress you in the future.

The backyard was relaxing with wonderful access to the lake. We spent most of our time enjoying the outdoors.

Place was right the on the water. My only issue was the shower was a bit small and the air-conditioning was lacking. We spent the time outside. Enjoying the water.

The backyard lakeside private cove was my favorite feature. Secondary to that, would have to be how hygienically sound this cozy open floor plan was.

This cozy little cottage is the perfect escape. The internet worked great and the exterior space is absolutely lovely - the ducks come right up to you.

This home is located in a private quiet cove. The home is very small but it was accurately advertised. It was cute and clean and the single wall unit kept it cool. The yard is huge and the acccess into the water is plenty. The cove was shallow and swimmable but very muddy so bring water shoes. The water toys were a great plus. The outside patio, furniture, and peddle boat , etc. were in need of a seasonal power wash and should be hosed down as part of the cleaning. Laundry soap was not included which should be listed so renters know up front.

This house was everything the website described it to be, if not more! Absolutely adorable and quite comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and calm and the house itself, was well stocked with basic essentials and even a few things we didn't even think to bring. My favorite were the dog bowls! Our dog is our child and the fact that "she" was thought of made my heart smile. Restaurants and rentals were only minutes away, we were even able to have a boat delivered to the house! Aside from the house, there WAS a minor inconvenience. Barely worth mentioning (unforeseeable things are going to occur) but I bring it up to brag on the property management that was quick to respond and even quicker to fix the situation without disruption! We were well taken care from start to finish and will definitely be coming back again!

The back yard is gorgeous, nice view, fire pit, swing and little bistro set. The paddle boards are a. I’ve touch. Cute patio lights and a good barbecue. Loved the swings. Kitchen is well stocked, all you need is food. Lots of sleeping room and decent bathroom amenities.

Cute cottage in a quiet cove. Small but perfect for the 2 of us and our dog. Lovely views of the lake from the house. Nice propane grill allowed me to cook out all our evening meals.

A cozy place perfect for a family.

The interior space was clean and as depicted. The outside space was what we were going for. It exceeded our expectations. There were 3 SUP board, 2 peddle boats, and a lily pad. We were there during the week and there was no boat traffic. It felt like we had the cove to ourselves. We were outside at 7am and stayed there until the fire pit by the lake burned out and the star gazing was putting us to sleep (8:30 ;)) We hope to visit again soon!
