This cozy lake cabin is nestled in the hills within one of Lake Whitney's most beautiful scenic areas near Rocky Creek on the Bosque County side. This is the perfect weekend place to spend time getting caught up with family, friends, or that special 'someone'.
Lake Whitney has been officially recognized as the 'Getaway Capital of Texas'. Lake Whitney is often compared to a Texas Hill Country lake, but, without all the lake traffic and overbuilt lake shores.
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 cabin's South West lakeshore location means easy access from the I-35 corridor and SH 22. Our location is less than a 90 minute drive from most DFW metroplex locations, under an hour from Waco, and no more than 2 hours from Austin. Better yet we are within a short drive to RedCaboose Winery in Meridian, Waco's New Mammoth Park, The Dr. Pepper Museum, mountain biking at Waco's Cameron Park which is 'nationally recognized', Clifton's historical downtown, and much more!
The cabin is fully-equipped with everything you might need to include: 1 queen bed, 1 double bed, 1 single bed, and 1 kids bed. (5 total person maximum limit - 4 adult max or 4 child max). We include all linens as well coffee for your early morning wakeup! If you plan on bringing your pet along, there is a large fenced yard in the back. A house broken pet is allowed inside (1 small/medium 'non-agressive breed' / E-MAIL OWNER PET DETAILS).
Come enjoy the full length patio where conversations are a brewing in the rock'n chairs or enjoy reading a good book in the outside country breeze. There is a screened in porch with tables and chairs to have an outside lunch or dinner (don't forget to ring the brass 'dinner' bell when the meals a coming!)
We have also included an inside and outside CD Player with multi-artist CD's for your listening pleasure. We also provide a good assortment of DVD's as well books to enjoy during your stay.
If you like to keep active or need to have the little ones keep'n busy, here are a few recreational items that we have provided at NO ADDITIONAL COST!
*You can access several miles of hiking trails just down below the cabin. Feel free to walk in either direction with lake access available in multiple points of entry. Be sure to have good shoes should you decide to climb down one of the various canyons for a little cave exploration or try jumping over the running creek!
One of our family favorites is to go hiking at nighttime with our flashlights when the critters come out!
*You can take out the provided 3 seat canoe down to the lake for exploration or up many of the lakeshore coves. You won't believe the waterfalls and lime-stone caves that you'll find along the edges! Be sure to bring your camera as proof. The canoe can be hand carried down to the lake by two (2) adults. ADULT PARTICIPATION IS REQUIRED AND LIFE JACKETS ARE MANDATORY.
Don't worry as we have provided life jackets to include: 2 small children, 2 youth for 50-90 lbs, 2 medium adults, and 1 large/extra large adult. Don't forget to bring the ores that are located inside the game room closet. LIFE JACKETS ARE MANDATORY.
*Feel free to use the provided fishing poles and go fish with the kids! Our suggestion would be to use a hook with a slip weight above the hook with a bobber about 1-2 feet up the line.
We have provided the fishing gear to get started. If you want to land the 'big' fish, you can stop at any of the local general stores and purchase some live worms, frozen shad, frozen shrimp, or just use a piece of hot dog.
Locations for fishing are easily found in either walking direction. When you catch that 'big' fish, feel free to use the cleaning board that is hung inside the game room.
*Have fun in the outside game room that has been stocked with a quality air-hockey table, electronic dart-board, a sleeping cot with checkers(in case you need a little nap!), badminton, and other activities.
The exterior window shutters open up to allow a nice breeze inside during the hot summer months. We have installed a new light inside for use during evening hours. Have fun!
OUTSIDE GAS GRILL / OUTSIDE FIRE PIT:
*Pull up some chairs and enjoy the evening with our outside fire pit (firewood is provided on the patio). PLEASE DO NOT USE IF A BURN BAN IS IN EFFECT. Turn on the gas grill and get those steaks on or that 'big' fish catch, nice and cooked!
*Take a throw in our horse-shoe pit! This is a game of skill where many hours can be spent bonding with fellow friends and family members. Remember the rules: 3 points a ringer, 2 points a leaner, and 1 point for the closest shoe. First to get 21 points is declared the winner!
Most of all, our cabin has been designed for 'family' style fun that we hope your family will enjoy as much as ours does. Please relax and leave your stress behind as we expect you'll have as much fun ever at Lake Whitney!
We'll see ya soon!
