Guestbook comments from the owner

Four 65+ women friends on a 3-day girls' getaway to Granbury. Perfect location, quiet area of town and even though the creek was quite low, its area kept us isolated from noise and traffic. The back yard was lovely. We didn't use the hot tub, but the stockade-fenced back yard would keep all quite private. The owner made sure we were well stocked with breakfast goodies and checked in with us as we arrived. The whole place was so very comfortable. We especially liked the sun room in the back which served as my prayer place early in the am and our coffee get together place after the others joined me one by one. Close enough to town to be convenient, but far enough away to be wonderfully quiet. We'll be back!

Quiet, clean, roomy home located in the middle of all the nearby fun

  • 5 of 5

Wanting to stay away from lodging in a hotel for 3 nights with 5 kids ages 7 and under, we looked into booking a rental home for the first time. We booked here and couldn't have been happier with the experience.

This home was located smack dab in the middle of all our activities; take a left after leaving the gated subdivision and your minutes from Dinosaur World, Dinosaur Valley State Park and Fossil Rim Wildlife Center (better than Natural Bridge Wildlife), or take a right and visit the nearby beach and playground -- both free and very clean. (Note: this seems the appropriate spot to tell those reading to eat at Babe's near the park on the town square. It's a country-style restaurant with more than enough of any kind of chicken you prefer and unlimited sides. Mmm)

This home was more than spacious enough to accommodate our crew, and not having to worry about traffic because of it being located on a cul de sac with only one other house gave us a bit more peace of mind. Also, the house comes fully equipped to handle anything I could think of, from extra linens to ample kitchen supplies.

Cindy was more than helpful and made our experience as smooth as could be. Oh, and the muffins she gave us were devoured. Thanks again for those.

Bottom line: Cindy is amazing to work with, it's impossible not to enjoy the house, there are many inexpensive things to do in any direction, and Granbury has to be the cleanest, neatest small town we've visited.

We will look to hopefully making this a yearly stop.

One last note: we didn't use the hot tub, but she has a very relaxing setup on the back patio. Seemed perfect for cocktails at night and/or coffee in the morning.

Enjoy!

Best Experience Ever

We rented this wonderful house for a girls weekend. It was perfect! All 6 of us agreed that this was a great place and it had everything in it we could have asked for. Very clean and well put together. Owners could not have been nicer.

Family Spring Break Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay at the cottage. We had three kids with us (ages 6, 9, and 11). The cottage was clean, it had plenty of towels, and plenty of space for all of us. The kitchen has all the things we needed and also enough chairs for us all to sit together (not all rentals seem to manage this for our family of 5). I found the bed to be comfortable. The cottage was in the back of the neighborhood past all the standard suburban looking houses in a more secluded area with lots of trees. You could barely see any other structures out the back. But it wasn't far to the historic downtown of Granbury. Granbury has a variety of family friendly restaurants. We also enjoyed the town beach - small but it has nice sand and no one was there when we went so there was plenty of room. We also enjoyed the attractions in Glen Rose which is only a 30 minute drive.

Cindy was good at communicating her contact information and answering my questions before and during our visit. She was also very kind to locate an item of my daughter's that we left behind and mail it to us.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I met at this cottage for a weekend girls trip. We were pleased to find such a clean and comfortable home. The home is just secluded enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the area, but close enough to town to enjoy all that Granbury has to offer (i.e. shopping on the square). We spent the majority of the weekend in the hot tub. It was wonderful, and I would certainly recommend it to others for a romantic weekend, family vacation or girls getaway.
