“Wonderful Getaway”
Reviewed March 7, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We completely enjoyed our 12 day stay at this cozy Lakeway Cabin. It was a wonderful place to spend quiet evenings watching the fire and relaxing in the living room. We walked the grounds, weather permitting (it was winter) and enjoyed ourselves. The cabin is well built and well decorated with all the comforts of home. It is close to shopping, restaurants and in our case family. The ranch has horses, chickens, wild life and a big friendly dog named Buck. Todd and Laura were wonderful hosts. We hope to return soon.

Thank you! Even during cold and inclement weather, there is still no better, more cozy place to be than the Cottage. The scenic views, custom interior and warm comfort of the fire stove create a one-of-a-kind experience of rest and renewal, and can be almost magical on chilly nights! We look forward to seeing you guys again!
