About Sandra Welch

My husband and I have been married for 35 years. We commute from our office in Midlothian to our home at Lake Whitney each day. We have one son, a daughter-in-law and an adorable & active 5 yr. old grandson. We enjoy boating on Lake Whitney with our family & friends every chance we get.

Sandra Welch purchased this house in 2008

Why Sandra Welch chose Lake Whitney

We have been coming to Lake Whitney and Laguna Park in particular since the mid 1970's. My husband use to ride motocross in Whitney and we enjoyed staying at the state park and lodges in the area. After we married and had our son we enjoyed coming here to fish and go boating. We purchased a cabin and became 'weekenders' for awhile. We finally had the opportunity to move here full time in 2003. We love the scenic beauty of the area. The lake is clear and clean. It's a great lake for water sports and fishing. The lifestyle here is relaxed and laid back. The people are friendly. It's near Whitney, Hillsboro and Waco. And just a little over an hour to downtown Dallas. We purchased this home because it's so cozy, comfortable, with beautiful lake views and lake access. It's just a few blocks from our home. A great place for family and friends to stay when we have a crowd or if they need a place to go to relax and getaway.

What makes this house unique

Lakeside Cottage is a cozy home in a quiet neighborhood. It backs up to Lake Whitney and is shady, private and peaceful. Gorgeous lake view's from most every room. You'll want to spend your time on the upper or lower deck watching the boats pass by. You can walk from the back yard down to the lake for a swim or great fishing. Watching the birds, squirrels, & raccoons is great entertainment. The night sky is wonderful for star gazing. It's close to nearby boat ramps and Uncle Gus Marina.

Awesome Weekend Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect house for a perfect weekend getaway. Wonder views over looking the lake from both inside and outside the home. The view extends t both bedrooms were you too can wake up the sun rising on the water. The house is very well decorated and extremely clean. Came completely furnished with all you would need, just bring food and drinks. Great patio for hanging out and BBQ'ing, or just relaxing to the sounds of nature. Small store very near by for any last minute snacks or food ideas, gas and odds & ends. Very close to the marina and boat ramp if you bring your own. If not boat rentals are also available at the marina. I just can't say enough about what a wonderful place this is and what a great weekend we had.

I definitely will being staying here again in the future and have no reservations about doing so.

wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home. Perfect for our group of 8. The home was clean and well furnished. Beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were nice. The back yard was a great place to hang out. Ourbgirls enjoyed playing on their scooters and we enjoyed the back deck with patio chairs. Lovely place to relax. The only downside, is that the access to the water is limited, because you have to climb down the rocks to get down to the lake. So much fun though and is a lovely home.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the home and beautiful Lake Whitney. With the lake level down right now it is more of a challenge to get down to the water for sure. It is doable but a challenge. We are happy our lake has not been as affected from the drought as some of the other lakes. It is possible to get out on boats, jet ski etc. And the fishing I understand is great! I hope when you visit next time the lake level will be more at normal levels. Thank you for choosing our home for your getaway.

Fishin Trip March 2014

  • 5 of 5

We take an annual fishing trip with cousins and friends and Lake Whitney did not disappoint. With plenty of fishing guides to choose from, we chartered a trip that produced plenty of white and striped bass. The lake is accessible from the backyard via approximately a 30 yard walk and semi-precarious climb down the rock face. There was plenty of room within the cottage and a few of us were able to break away for after lunch naps. Property is immaculate and private with some neighbors who kept to themselves. The evenings were very peaceful and stargazers would appreciate the view from the backyard.

Owner's Response: So glad you had an opportunity to book a fishing guide. We are lucky to have many great guides. The fishing is great this time of year especially. If you like to fish from the shore, we understand the cat fish are usually a sure bet from behind the house. Glad you did make it down to the shore. With the lower water level now, what is normally fairly easy accessibility is quite a challenge right now. Thankfully Lake Whitney is a deep lake and the boating, water sports have not been affected. We hope you keep us in mind for next years fishing trip!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable experience. The cabin was beautiful and the view off the back balcony was gorgeous! Loved the fact that there was a fenced in yard for the kids to play in as well! Would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feed back and are glad you enjoyed your stay. The fenced area around the lower deck overlooking lake is nice for families with children. The upper deck adjoining the living room is a great place to sit out side and enjoy the lake view rain or shine. Lots of shade trees offer shade to both areas.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and exactly as depicted in the pictures. Very comfortable rooms and nicely decorated and maintained. Beautiful view of the lake from the kitchen, dining room and deck. The owner was very responsive and friendly to us with changes and questions. The lake is pretty low so you can't really access it easily from the property but there are many places where you can get in close by. We were there for a short time and ate only at the Bosque Cafe nearby for lunch and was very good.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. The lake is a little low right now and it is more of a challenge to get down to the waters edge but I'm glad you did find easier access. Lake Whitney is a beautiful lake and I'm glad you enjoyed the lake views and the home. We hope you plan another trip to Lake Whitney and stay at our home again!
