About Barbara

I discovered Lake Whitney with some friends of mine some 20 years ago. I fell in Love with it's Natural & Unspoiled Beauty. The Cliffs & Rocks are great for fishing Or Diving. The Lake is so Clean & Clear. The Fishing is Great, Boating, Sking is also Great. You can Ski forever & never see any other Boats. Lake Whitney is a well kept Secret. Its has some very nice State Parks & Camping sites.I have some other friends that invited me to Lake Whitney for July 4th Holiday. I was hooked I was determined to find me a place. It is very hard to find a Water Front Lake House you can actually walk down to the water, most are Cliff Hanging Lots which are Beautifull to, but I wanted to be able to walk down to the Water. I bought the Lakehouse over 10 Years ago. I have a Great View & it is very nice & peacefull.It has all been updated with 45' Deck.I plan to retire there some day.. .

Barbara purchased this house in 1991

Why Barbara chose Lake Whitney

Lake Whitney is very quiet & peacefull.The Lake is one of the most Beautifull Lakes In Texas. Lake Whitney has been voted one of The Best Lakes in Texas with all of it's Parks & Camp Ground's. They even have Equestrian Trails for Horseback riding.It is vey close to Dallas/Ft Worth area little over 1 Hour Drive to the Metroplex.

What makes this house unique

When you pull into the driveway you see the Lake & you begin to relax. It has a Great View of Lake Whitney from the 45' Deck & every room in the Lake Home.The Neighborhood is a nice place to walk & watch the Squirrels, Birds chirping. You can actually see the Falling Stars in the Black Clear Sky at night.

Family Thanksgiving Get-together

  • 5 of 5
What a comfortable place for our family to get together to celebrate the holiday! We had plenty of room, the house was clean and beautiful, and the view of the lake was amazing! The children were fascinated by all the fossils and spent lots of time playing in the fenced-in yard and exploring by the lake. The adults enjoyed sitting around the fire pit on the deck after the children were in bed! Thank you for being so easy to work with! We would definitely love to come back, maybe try it in the summer when we could get in the water!

Owner's Response: Thank You for letting us know how comfortable our Home was for you, we try to make it a Home Away home for you. Also thanks for letting our cleaning crew always appreciate good marks on cleaning also, Lucy works very hard to keep it looking nice. We also love the pic of the Family down by the water, it shows how children from 1-9 years old can have fun in the cove playing & swimming. It also shows The group of 20 people can enjoy the lake house & have plenty of room. Please do come back in the summer for your family to enjoy the water & sunshine! Thank You, Barbara

Great Weekend

  • 4 of 5
Every year we try to spend a week together during the summer but we're not able to this year. We decided to enjoy a weekend at the lake that was within 11/2 hours of everyone.

Barbara home is absolute beautiful. She had everything we needed plus plenty of room. We have 8 adults plus 1 2 year old. The only negative was could not really walk with my grandchild down to the lake. Very steep. Other than that I highly recommend this place to other families.

Owner's Response: Thank You for your response. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Lake Whitney & the Lake House is Great! Sorry you had a problem with getting down the hill, but the natural beauty of Lake Whitney is what we love, with all its Limestone Rock & Cliffs.The Cove is Great for swimming and keeping your Boat overnight.There are steps to get to bottom with rails. Please come again I will check on stairs to see if there is a problem. Please come back anytime. Thanks, Barbara

Fun family weekend

  • 4 of 5
My family had a blast at this vacation house. There were 18 of us and the large family and dining room were great for eating together and visiting. The parking was a little tricky, but we made it work. Also the trek to the lake was hard on some of the young and old in our group so we took a polaris to go up and down the hill. It was great to leave the boats parked in the cove!

Owner's Response: Thank You for your review. I'm happy you got to all get together with your Family & there was plenty of room for your large Group. Its fun to get everyone all together & sit a Big Oak Table or Large 50" Deck to talk over Good Old Times. Going up & down the Hill is Great Exercise for all! At least you can eat more with all the activities with swimming, boating etc. You can also just sit on your Private Balcony and Relax..Please come again anytime.. Bj

Awesome Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This house provided such a comfort for my family and I. The house had everything you could have needed- full stocked kitchen, lots of room and beds, and an amazing view of the lake. We spent most of out time out on the deck enjoying the peaceful atmosphere, which and more than enough chairs and tables too. We would totally come back for another trip!! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank You for your Review. We also enjoy the View of the Lake & the Large Deck. It has an Awesome View of Lake Whitney. It has been Voted one of the Best Lakes in Texas,that is the main reason I bought the lake House was the View and Lake Whitney. We did a lot of remodeling to match the View. I have stocked it with the little things we think you will need & don't have to buy. Also adding Trundle Beds & Sofa beds to make it comfortable for everyone.I enjoyed having you so. Please come again anytime. Bj

From the Woodlands

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house and the lake. My husband and I took the upstairs and it was great. We had our own privacy and was able to go up there set outside and enjoy the peace and quite.
The owner is wonderful and was very helpful.
We loved setting outside on the deck in the morning with our son drinking coffee and watching the red birds. Mother Nature let it rain everyday except one, but that was ok because we just hung out.
We hope we will be able to go back and have my grandchildren and my sister with her sons with us next time!!

Owner's Response: Thank You for your Review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at our Lake House, the Suite upstairs is very nice, peaceful & quiet when you want to get away from the group. But the Lake House has several living areas to do that if you want to play games, relax, read a book or just conversation, etc. The outside Deck is large enough for all guest to enjoy the Sun, Sunsets, relax with a Cool Drink or coffee. I really enjoyed working with you & very sorry some of your Family wasn't able to make it. I hope all is well now, I know you are taking care of all. I'm happy you got some much needed rest with the rain you needed it. Please do come back again when all the Family & your Grand Daughter can make it.I did enjoy our talks..
