Cant believe this place had any good reviews.

  • 1 of 5

If i could have left no stars i would have but I couldnt publish this review without atleast one. I make all online purchases based on reviews and cannot believe this place had any positive ones. This listing is very misleading. Its says secluded on 5 acres. Its not secluded at all. Theres two houses a stones throw on either side and two other shedlike buildings not much further. The pictures are taken with these other buildings just out of the frame. You cannot flush toilet paper in the toilet. There is a sign that says the septic is very old and to place toilet paper in the trash basket. Not all of the windows open so you cant get much fresh air and the ones that do open have screens that are so badly ripped up that the mosquitos and nats come pouring inside. Listing says there is a trail to the lake. Its a trail to a swampy bog of mud and grass adjacent to the lake.

I hope this review helps someone else from wasting a night of there vacation.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry their stay wasn’t up to their liking. We had a couple conversations prior to their arrival to make sure the size of the Cabin was up to their expectations. These conversations made them aware of any concerns for children of a young age, which did not seem to be an issue with the Guest at that time. The cabin has only one, slightly damaged screen in concerns to the front door. We do realize this is an inconvenience and we apologize we were unable to have it corrected before their arrival. All of the other window screens were checked and no damage was found. The room also contains a functional ceiling fan and A/C system. The amount of rain we’ve received this year has caused the lake to rise and flood in some parts of the property, a situation beyond my control. Elevation of the land that Cabin sits on keeps it away from these potential high water areas. However, it is conveyed to potential Guests that is not a “beach” type of environment. The trail to the lake on our property is maintained to keep the grass short, but also preserve the ideal that this is still a very natural environment. There is no boat dock or slip accessible from our location. Our Cabin is very old, the septic system is also very old. It is posted in the restroom on how to dispose of any toilet paper used during the stay. Despite our legal right to only allow full refunds outside of 30 days prior to the arrival date of a Guest, I offered and provided, that they only pay for the night in which the Guest had stayed, along with agreed cleaning fee and taxes due on that occupancy, refunding them the rest of their expected stay. I even received acknowledgement that the Guest was satisfied with the refund and appreciated how quickly I helped to resolve the issue, thanking me in doing so. It is not my intention to mislead potential guests or to not provide as much information and courtesy prior to their stay. I take this business very seriously and I take pride in every review I receive, be it good or bad, as they are all opportunities to grow this experience. The photos provided on our site, regarding the location and property around the Cabin, purposely only show my property as it would be a violation of privacy to take photos of my Neighbors and their property. One of the houses they speak of is my Home, where my family has lived since 1957. It allows me to keep my eye on my Cabin as well as be there for whatever my Guests need during their stay.

Quiet and quaint; privacy in the midst of a bustling small town

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just as described and was like walking into the pictures from the website. We spent a lot of time on the covered back porch and in the chairs overlooking the lake - playing cards, reading, enjoying a cup of coffee.

We felt secluded from the world with our own little bit of the Texas Hill Country but were only a short drive away from parks, a golf course, hiking, a movie theater and many restaurants. The best of both worlds.

Connie was a wonderful host - meeting us upon arrival and wishing us well as we left. Even though we were right next door, it seemed as if our paths only crossed those two times.

Great retreat - hope to return soon.

Magical!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at The White Owl Retreat. We were hoping for another wonderful time, and it was even better than the first time! It was like we came home! The setting and view were utterly amazing! It's difficult to find words to describe. Thank you, Connie for sharing this beautiful and magical place with us! This land and the cabin are sacred to us. We will return soon!

Relaxing in the beauty of nature

  • 5 of 5

An incredible experience. The rustic charm along with a serene natural landscape allows the spirit to lift and stress to fade away. Connie made our stay perfect with sweet southern charm, beautiful amenities, and an Indian blessing for our parting along with a life lesson totumn to think of for the day.
