My husband and I have been married for 34 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 4 yr. old grandson. We enjoy boating on Lake Whitney with our family & friends every chance we get.

Sandra Welch purchased this house in 2010

We have been coming to Lake Whitney and Laguna Park in particular since the mid 1970's. My husband use to ride motorcross 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 Hillsboro and Waco. And just a little over an hour to downtown Dallas. We purchased this home because we love the location. It has a panoramic view of the lake & cliffs. We love sitting outside and watching the boats & waterskiers. It is a great place for our family and friends to stay when our home cannot accomodate everyone. Or, they need a place to relax, have fun & getaway.

Sunset Cove Cabin has some of the best lake views around. Relax with a glass of wine and watch the sunset from the back yard swing. You can walk down to the lake from the back of the house and fish or go for a swim. We enjoy watching the many species of birds, especially the cardinals. There are also ducks and geese and sometimes in early spring, pelicans pass through. The raccoons and squirrels are fun to watch as well. You may see one of the many fox that pass through behind the house near the lake. Deer can be spotted across the cove from the back porch too. Just sitting on the back porch watching the boats pass is fun and relaxing. If you like to star gaze this is the perfect place, no city lights!

GREAT PLACE, REASONABLE PRICE

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at this property 6/19 -6/22 2014. We brought 2 Jet Skis, 1- 25' Wakeboard Boat and 4 vehicles (full size trucks) and had no problem parking. Uncle Gus' Marina is less than a mile from the property and it is $5 dollars to put in there, lake was low but we had no problems with the big boat. The cliffs at Walling Bend Park are just across the channel, as a matter of fact the teenage boys swam to it to go cliff jumping (I wouldn't recommend this ;)) The views are beautiful, it is an older home but very comfortable. We had 4 adults, 1 infant and 3 teen aged boys and the house was plenty big for all of us. The AC worked great! Screened porch was great and again the view was amazing. Owners live right next door and were very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely recommend this property to others and would definitely rent it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you choosing our home for your getaway! The circle drive provides ample parking and easy to get in & out even with a large boat. Original wood floors, knotty pine paneling and kitchen cabinets give the home a homey feel. Water level has came up 4' since your visit & lake looks even better. Luckily, Lake Whitney being such a deep lake it is rare boating would be affected. Thank you for the nice review and I hope you visit again!

GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Everything was just as advertised. Booking/paying through VRBO was a snap and owner was very easy to work with. Directions to home worked well, GPS/Google Maps not so much. Stick to the directions given. House was well maintained and very clean. We had a wonderful time hanging out in the back yard and swimming. Yes, it is tricky to get down to the water but, doable and worth it.

We had a great family time. Only downfall we could not swim in the lake from the home! To many rocks & hard to get down to lake! The weather was wonderful. The fireworks went on for 3 nights! Nice area! Need more restaurants for visitors. The owners were very helpful. The home was clean and had everyone we needed.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the home and I'm sorry you were unable to get into the water. Lake Whitney is a beautiful clean lake that is surrounded by bluffs. The lake is always accessible but depending on the lake level, getting to the water can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. I hope you plan on visiting again.
