Quiet, clean, roomy home located in the middle of all the nearby fun
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.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write out such a wonderful review! It makes us so happy when we hear that people have had a great "get-away" and that special memories were made! So glad you enjoyed the cottage's features and location! You have a beautiful family, we would love to have you back any time! Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and for staying with Contrary Creek Cottage!
Lovely home in quiet, secure location
The owner was responsive to all our questions and provided good contact information throughout. The house is exactly as it looks; nicely furnished, very clean and comfortable, good location for exploring the town and area, wifi and roku, dvd player and television all working well and easy to use. The hot tub on the patio was a lovely bonus. The only stumbling block was providing a charcoal grill that could have used some cleaning, but a quick trip to the grocery store for charcoal and some aluminum foil to put on the grill was an easy fix. We recommend this home if you are staying in Granbury.
I loved it.
The house was perfect for our Girls Weekend trip. The house was very clean and comfy for our group. The hot tub was a perfect ending for a day of shopping..
Beautiful home with every amenity
We loved our stay in this beautiful, roomy home, and we especially loved its somewhat secluded location with the creek in the backyard! The home had a a fun nautical/beach theme throughout, and all the red appliances in the kitchen - 😍! We had every amenity we needed, beds were comfy, rooms were spacious, and extra linens were plentiful! Cindy met us at the house to make sure everything was in tip-top shape; she was so welcoming and delightful and repeatedly encouraged us to call her with any needs. I highly recommend this beautiful, comfortable vacation home!
Cute cottage for girls weekend!
We stayed at the cottage for our annual girls weekend trip! It was a cute cottage in a quiet neighborhood. We loved the view of the river from the backyard and enjoyed the hot tub as well! Cindy was great to work with and helped make our stay wonderful!
Everything we needed for a great getaway!
This property was very neat and clean which is always the most important thing to me! The bedrooms were especially nice and we had plenty of room for my husband and me plus our two young children. The owner Cindy is very nice and helpful and it was a good location for us to visit Fossil Rim and other area attractions. We had a great time!
