Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Quiet, clean, roomy home located in the middle of all the nearby fun

  • 5 of 5

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.

Enjoy!

Felt like home. Clean and well decorated for the holidays

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Cottage. it was a very nice and quiet cul de sac with a great hot tub that we enjoyed on the cooooold nights. The home was clean and well decorated for Xmas so it made it feel like a Christmas home. Downtown Center only being 10 minutes away was convenient and offered several choices of restaurants to dine. Thanks Cindy. Everything was great.

Perfect for our girls weekend

The house was adorable! It was clean and very comfortable. It is close to restaurants, wineries and the Granbury downtown square. The hot tub was great in the evenings. Cindy was a great host and made sure we arrived without any problems.
