About Sandra Welch

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

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 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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Good times

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to relax. From the first step inside the front door you feel at home. The views of the lake are beautiful from inside the home and back yard. The home is clean and owners are great. There is plenty of parking and multiple boat ramps less than 10 minutes away. We set up a shade canopy and chairs at the waters edge and spent most of the day fishing and just spending some quality time with family. We also booked a guided striper fishing trip for one of our mornings and everyone caught big fish. If you enjoy striper fishing we found Lake Whitney to be better than Lake Texoma. Will be back in December.

Awesome Lakehouse!

  • 5 of 5
My Family and I had a Great time! This Lakehouse was even more beautiful up close. This is a spacious home, very clean, has all the necessities needed for a comfortable stay. One of the best things about this place is that it is right by the water. We were able to walk down to the lake and fish at any time. The Sunrise and Sunset are beautiful. This place gives you that home away from home feeling. We plan to come back as soon as we can and as often as we are able. The people in the area of the home are very friendly too. I recommend this place highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm glad you found everything as you expected. We are in a quiet neighborhood with wonderful neighbors. Even though your in a neighborhood, the house is situated on the property to where you still have plenty of privacy. Of, course there is nothing but lake behind the house which is very relaxing.

We had a great time. The place was very clean and the lake was beautiful. Shower head in the main bathroom needs to be fixed, other than that I would never stay in a hotel again. Owner is super nice.

A relaxing Labor Day!

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoyed the cabin by the lake so much! The mornings and evenings were cool, sitting in the swings looking at the beautiful view of the lake. We had a great time playing in the water, and enjoying being together. THe cabin was comfortable and well equipped for the eight of us, plus one precious baby!!!!

Owner's Response: Happy to hear you and your family enjoyed the home. Lake Whitney is a great getaway. The panoramic views from the screened in porch are wonderful not to mention the great sunsets! Glad you got to enjoy the water too! Even on a busy holiday weekend, Lake Whitney is not overly crowded as most lakes. Water sports of all kinds can still be enjoyed even with the lower water level. Great place to relax, enjoy family and freinds and have a great time.
