About Jimmy and Dana Washington

We are both native Texans who love to stay in vacation rentals when traveling and are so excited to share our much loved lake place.

Jimmy and Dana Washington purchased this house in 2004

Why Jimmy and Dana Washington chose Burnet

We have owned this property since 2004 and have enjoyed every minute we have spent here. We have had many large family gatherings here, weddings and holidays.

What makes this house unique

We were raised spending time at lakes and both of us have enjoyed water sports with our families from young ages. This place is perfect because you are a few minutes from open water for skiing and wake boarding but are located on the river perfect for kayaking, paddle boating and the new sport paddle boarding on the calm water.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful lake house was everything that we hoped for and more. It's in a perfect was on a quiet canal that was perfect for stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking for our kids (and us) but also had close and easy access to open water for wake boarding, etc. We brought our boat and the dock is in excellent condition. There are lots of nice outdoor spaces for socializing and enjoying the view. The charming interior was well-maintained and had comfortable beds and everything we needed...and the reading nook was a family favorite. There were 10 of us and it felt cozy but not crowded. We'll be back!

Great location, beautiful cottage and fun.

  • 5 of 5

The Hummingbird Cottage was a wonderful vacation retreat. The home provided all the emenaties of a hotel. Very warm and inviting. Plenty of fun activities on the quiet cove near the Colorado river: pattle boat, kayaks, and swimming. Great pier and deck for our boat and fishing. I give it a 10 and our family had a great time.

Wonderful get away..

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything the previous reviews said. We had a wonderful time especially watching all the hummingbirds every morning. The home is fully stocked, very clean and beautifully decorated. The grandkids loved the paddle boat, paddle boards and fishing off the deck. We all had a wonderful time. The only negative is that the week went by too fast.

We will keep coming back!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at the Hummingbird Cottage. This year we stayed even longer because of how much we love this property! There is plenty to do and plenty of room. We stayed with two other couples and kids. The kids absolutely love the bunk room! I have to say the owners are the best! Very nice and accommodating! Best spot to be on the river by far!!!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful 9 nights at the Hummingbird Cottage and we were not ready to leave. We celebrated our daughter's 16th birthday and Father's Day with family & friends here followed up by a week of relaxing and boating. The pictures do not do justice to this beautiful property. Jimmy was a pleasure to work with and very gracious - the house is equipped with all the comforts of home and then some! We especially enjoyed the nearby boat ramp and dock for our boat, early morning outings on the kayaks and paddle boards, enjoying coffee from one of many comfy outdoor seating areas, large deck with constant hummingbird shows, the spacious kitchen and cozy living area with plenty of seating for movie watching, the comfortable beds, plush towels, the large, beautifully landscaped and completely fenced in yard that our black lab loved, plenty of room for washers and volleyball and lots of places to sit in the shade and catch the breeze. Thoroughly enjoyed! Thank you!

Most Fantastic mini vacation our family has had! Hummingbird Cottage is wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has just had the most relaxing (3) days and nights at the Hummingbird Cottage on Lake LBJ. We really did not want to leave when it was time to go. When we arrived Jimmy and Dana were there finishing up some work and was so gracious to show us around. The Cottage came totally stocked with everything anyone could want or need to have fun for the weekend. It came equipped with (2) Kayaks, (2) Paddle Boards, a Peddle Boat, and I must say our Granddaughters and kids thoroughly enjoyed every one of them each day. We were initially concerned about the weather forecast for the weekend as it was predicting rain, but were so pleased to see that it only rained for maybe an hour in the afternoon. This was just long enough to cool things off and then we were right back off to the water fun again. My husband enjoyed fishing right off the dock early morning, midday and evening. Our granddaughter even out fished him when they figured out you could catch the little fish on cheese balls and turkey. She pulled them in one right after another and boy was she proud!! The porch filled with hummingbird feeders gave us a constant show of hummingbirds, and was a delight to watch. The house was well equipped with linens, towels, washer, dryer, WiFi, TV's, coffee pots, and every cooking utensil you could possibly need and plenty of dishes with a dishwasher to boot. The beds were extremely comfortable! With HEB only 10 minutes away, we stocked up and cooked, grilled, and smoked our meals and the supplies could not have been better. It was as if we were home. Our stay was relaxing, fun, and we are already wanting to go back. Our Granddaughters said they wanted to book it again and we are in agreement!! With it only being a little over an hour from where we live, it was such a convenient location. Our Daughter-in-law said it was nice to have a place so close that you could go to and relax for a few days. There were many family memories made during our stay!! Thank you Jimmy and Dana, your home is beautifully decorated, and accommodating. We could not have asked for a more beautiful home with great access to the water toys and fun. You have really thought of everything for your guest. We will be back!!!
