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.
Our time spent in the cottage was exactly what we had hoped for. We were in need of a peaceful, restful get-away and we were not disappointed. The location was very quiet and tranquil and the cottage was lovely. We enjoyed sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch and also enjoyed the patio/deck area in the back. Our only complaint is that we wish we could have stayed longer! Hopefully next time we can! Thanks for sharing your lovely cottage.

Thank you so much for giving us Mommas a place to rest, relax and rejuvenate! We enjoyed every minute of it! The house was very clean and in a safe area. Thanks, Cindy, for your hospitality!
Four other ladies and I spent a long weekend in Granbury just for some girlfriend time. It was a perfect house for us. We enjoyed cooking together in the kitchen and visiting outside on the porch in the nice weather. The house was clean and comfortable!
Very nice property clean and furnished with flair. Quiet and out of the way, just what my family was needing. Unexpected amenities at every turn. We will consider this property again in the future.

Cindy made our stay seamless! The house was adorable and had plenty of space. We had dinner out back every night and it was perfect. Very inviting with the creek behind the house and rope lighting along the fence. We would certainly stay here again if we are in the area. Thank you Cindy for the texts before, during and after our stay!
