The Cottage is one of our two lake house rentals located on the north end of Toledo Bend Reservoir in Huxley, Texas. The Cottage is 5 miles north of Huxley Bay Marina, 25 miles east of Center, TX, and 18 miles south of Logansport, LA. It is about a one-hour 15 minute drive from Shreveport, LA, one hour from Pendleton Bridge, and 3 ½ hours from Dallas or Houston, TX and Lafayette, LA.

The Cottage has two bedrooms, two baths, living room with fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor grills, satellite TV, high-speed Internet, central air/heat, covered porch overlooking the lake, and a screened–in covered deck (The Lanai). We have a new private fishing pier with electricity, fresh water and fish cleaning station. We also have a boat ramp and outdoor fire pit. Please note, if we are experiencing low lake conditions, you may not be able to launch your boat or fish off the pier. However, Huxley Bay marina has a deep water boat ramp which is just a few minutes up the road.

If you would like to schedule a guided fishing trip, Greg is a full time fishing guide. You can visit his guide services at

One bedroom has a king-size bed and a single bed and the other bedroom has a queen-size bed, and two single beds. There is also a double bed in the utility room off the kitchen area and a large sofa in the living room. The Lanai also makes a great sleeping porch! Two covered stalls provide space to park your car or boat, and adjacent to the Cottage is a fishing pier and boat ramp for your use. The Cottage accommodates up to nine people and has just about every convenience you have in your home, including a dishwasher, large microwave, washer, dryer, and two refrigerators.

Very special and memorable trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Fun home with all the love and perks of a home away. The front porch is s treasure for outdoor lovers giving us a beautiful sunrise each and every day, the river providing the frame. I loved the rocker as I wrapped up with one of the blankets and a good book while my husband fished.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need and the owner loaned me her crock pot. I used it to fix a roast, chicken, and even poach some apples.

We enjoyed the visit, even though we are past the prime of our life, the homey conveniences making our stay special.

Getaway Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Chalet next door to the Cottage...we had an incredible long weekend sits up high and makes for a beautiful view of the lake from the porch...the house was exactly as shown, clean..comfortable..well stocked and organized for any and everything you might need or want. The owners Greg and Beth were hospitable starting with the booking.."spot on" directions as another reviewer said, and throughout our stay..All we talked about on the way home was when can we go back...

Best Kept Secret on Toledo Bend

  • 5 of 5

Like this place so much I wanted to keep it all to myself, but I really should let others it enjoy it, too.

Lots of homey touches (thanks Beth!) that make this cottage a perfect vacation spot. This isn't your Grand-daddy's fishin' camp!

Off-the-beaten-path kind of place and a bit tricky to find, so pay attention to the owners' directions 'cuz they're spot-on.

Like that the Crafts are pet lovers and allow some 'critters' -- if they're well-behaved, of course.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a great lake getaway,this is the place. The Cottage was immaculate and comfortable. Everything is provided for just like home. All you need to do is bring your food and enjoy the beautiful lake view and the spetactular sunrises. The host, Beth and Greg, are the most accomodating and intertaining people on the lake. Greg is a professional guide on Toledo Bend and can help you out with his guide service or just help you out if you bring your own boat. Beth is an artist and has done wonderful portraits and amazing stained glass work."She also is a gourmet cook if you are looking for some special fish recipets". The supplies in the kitchen leave notning wanting as Beth has overseen the fine details to make your stay a memorable experience. I highly recommend this cozy Cottage for a great getaway. My boys said it was the best trip so far.
