Lovely property &the pool was great .However. ..
The Shamrock cottage was perfect for our stay,however the place was not clean. Dusty,dirty bed sheets, coffee pot , floor etc. We didn't have sheets for the sleeper sofa and few eating utensils.
The pool was very clean and lovely.
I would love to stay here again but suggest Rocky have a talk with the are takers.
Screened Porch is the best.
We had a very relaxing time in the cottage. We really enjoyed sitting on the screened porch and looking out at the creek and trees. When we arrived the creek was dry but then the rains dumped so much water, it filled up and was flowing beautifully. We loved listening to the sound of it and we saw a hummingbird. The cabin itself is basic. I agree with another reviewer that it could use a really good cleaning. The freezer part of the small refrigerator was frozen over so we couldn't put our ice packs in it. (No hair dryer available to defrost it.) There were only 2 small fry pans and the handle was loose on one of them so if you plan to cook for a group, bring your own pan etc. Our Chihuahua liked it. There is plenty of grassy area to walk around with her. We didn't find any trails to walk from the property but we did walk the short way down to the creek. The king bed was very comfortable. Ask for the wifi password before or when you get there. We couldn’t find it listed anywhere in the room so we emailed the property manager. There are board games like monopoly and boggle as well as several books and magazines. The Texas Stonehenge II and Easter Island Heads display is just down the road. It's a quick stop to walk around and take pictures. All in all, it was a very nice stay.
We were pleased w/the cabin. The bed was really comfortable & the cabin was supplied w/most everything we could have needed. The only complaint we have was that there was no water in the 'creek'. However, the setting was private & pleasant and there is public access to the river just little ways down the road. I do recommend this place.
The shamrock cottage is in a great location and the bed is super comfy . However that it is advertised as sleeping 6 is a joke . The porch is filthy and I wouldn't let my dog sleep out there . There was dirt all over the beds and dust and dirt on everything. If you were wanting a camping experience you would at least shake out the tent first . The rest of the place was only a little better . It's really a shame because it could be a really nice place .
Some girlfriends and I wanted to get out of town for a night, and this was the *perfect* getaway!
Great family time
This was our second time staying at BumbleBee Lodge and Shamrock Cottage. We had a great time. My sister, niece, and great nephew came with us this year and they had a blast. The owner takes pride in this home and it is very well kept up. The pool was not clean when we arrived, but all it took was a phone call to Rocky and he had someone come out to take care of that situation. A special thanks goes out to the couple that got the pool clean. After that kids were happy, had a great time swimming in the pool, and great family time. Would go back again for vacation. Sandra
