It's perfect for a romantic getaway or a relaxing overnight with the family at the lake.The community marina, boat ramp, and café are nearby. Dine on site in the fully equipped kitchen or experience Granbury’s fine restaurants, just minutes away. Relax on the front porch or in the Hot Tub and listen to the birds or watch the ducks swimming in the nearby creek. Located right outside of the city, you can do what your heart desires. From hiking, mountain biking, swimming, shopping, golfing, or just reading and relaxing, there are endless possibilities! Come enjoy Granbury, the lake, and the solitude of Contrary Creek Cottage.

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!
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.
Very nice, decorated very cute, felt very comfortabale. The house accommodated 6 perfectly. Kitchen was a little small.
The perfect getaway for our family of six. We enjoyed the quiet setting of the cottage so much we didn't go anywhere for the 3 days we were there. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub and just being able to relax. The cottage was very clean and had what we needed to cook our meals. We enjoyed the pastries and juice left by Cindy for our breakfast. We would definitely like to come back and would highly recommend it.
The house was so cute and in a very peaceful setting. The owner was always available and so helpful. We had guests three times in our 12 day stay and even though it's a gated community the owner was on top of it with permits for our guests. We had such a wonderful stay and not only would come back but would recommend anyone to use it. The house is about 15 minutes from the cute town of Granbury with all of it's fund shops. Thank you Cindy for sharing your house with us.
We felt quite at home in this cozy cottage! I can't think of a single thing that was lacking. The owner is delightful and extremely accommodating. No complaints!!!
We all enjoyed our stay. One of our party had a broken bone in her foot and was unable to get to the bedrooms upstairs but the hide-a-bed located in the den proved adequate. Everything proved to work well and it was a quiet and relaxing vacation for all. Thank you Cindy for all your personal attention to make our stay so enjoyable.
