About pam barrett

I am an Interior Designer in Austin, TX and have been visiting family and friends in the Lake Whitney area for about 10 years.

pam barrett purchased this cottage in 2012

Why pam barrett chose Texas

Having been a visitor to this area for so many years, I decided to buy a home here for myself and my children's families who visit from California and New Mexico with my two adorable grandchildren! The view from the back deck of the cottage is spectacular! It is situated at the end of a very quiet street with beautiful trees and sits on over a 1/2 acre lot which affords wonderful privacy.

What makes this cottage unique

You'll fall in love with the view just like I did when I first set foot on this property!

Best rental I have found on Lake Whitney so far

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th or 5th property my family has rented on Lake Whitney in the past 5 years, and by far the best! Pam has a really special place here and we will be renting again ASAP. The house is perfect for our family of 5 and its right up the road from Uncle Gus Marina where you can dock your boat overnight for $10 per night. This house is very centrally located on the lake and a quick trip to several stores and restaurants near the lake.

Beautiful lake view and outdoor setting

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend staying here. Very quiet and beautiful setting with fire pit and outdoor inclosed patio makes it nice. Not a great location to get down to the water but we enjoyed games, fireside nights and food. Thank you for sharing your property with us!

Adorable place right on the water!

I absolutely loved being there! It was such a nice place to stay...the kids and dogs had a great time exploring the lake! We went to so many different places around the lake and there are more to explore! We will definitely be going back this summer!!! 😍

Peaceful Thanksgiving with Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed at Pam’s quiet lake view cottage over Thanksgiving weekend. We took full advantage of the screened in porch for our evening meals and used the fire pit when the weather turned cooler. The girls in the group made the short drive to Waco one day to visit Magnolia Market and other downtown attractions. We would definitely stay here again.

Just what a few mom's needed to get refreshed. A weekend away and this home was perfect and peaceful. Wouldn't change anything. Thank you Pam for sharing your home. I hope to bring my friends again!
