Relax and Have Fun at Your Private Lakefront Cottage
We often hear from our guests, “pictures just don’t do this place justice”. Imagine your own private cottage nestled discreetly among huge oak trees, with floor to ceiling windows allowing you to experience a panoramic view of the lake.
Be together and see nature. The deer roam on the property. Picture yourself enjoying a delicious meal alfresco, laughter, stories, reading a good book, taking a well-deserved nap, or reconnecting with yourself, nature, friends, or family. It’s here.
All Yours & Barely Lift A Finger
Create a personalized getaway at our brand-new contemporary cottages only 22 feet from the lake. Think …
- Tranquil and serene
- Lounging in a chair under a canopy of fifty-year oak trees
- Listening to the water lap onto the shore
- Sipping your favorite glass of libation or beverage
- Relaxing in front of an evening fire pit

What Sets Us Apart?
We offer our four 450 square foot cottages as a package. No one other than you and up to eight of your guests are on the property at the same time. This is the perfect place to come together to practice safe social distancing while creating great new memories around the fire pit, fishing, playing or simply walking the grounds.
There are times throughout the year we also offer individual cottage reservations versus the exclusive four cottage package. Whether it’s a getaway for yourself, time with your partner, friend, or another couple, we can safely accommodate you, and create an experience you’ll remember for years.
Recent Guest Testimonials
Unique – Hospitable – Tranquil
My wife and I chose this listing for a weekend getaway. It is an ideal distance from DFW and the property itself is stunning. The owners’ are warm and thoughtful hosts, supplying everything from blankets to microwavable popcorn. I especially appreciated the Earl Grey Anne and Sue offered us.
We enjoyed the artwork in our bungalow but the focal piece of the space is the floor-to-ceiling window. We felt like we were sitting with the deer and songbirds on the property as we sat in our beds. This is a delightful option for those hoping to relax and reconnect, we’re thankful we found it.

Additional Guest Testimonials
“This place was the best!!! I had no idea how beautiful this lake would be, and the cottage is just such a comfortable stay on the peninsula. The owners were so kind and attentive, providing us with a bottle of wine in the cottage and margaritas at the hot tub! We were constantly surrounded by friendly wildlife like deer and owls, and we had such a perfect Thanksgiving getaway. For cooking, we enjoyed the grill and roasting marshmallows in the firepit. The place was clean and updated, and we loved the giant windows overlooking the water. We’ll absolutely want to return! ” -Matthew

“This place is a little slice of heaven – every detail has been considered to make your stay here feel wonderful! We only were at the Goldfinch for one night but we felt like we got to experience the best of everything while there. The sunset over the lake was gorgeous and we were treated to a rainbow and enjoyed all sorts of birds and deer on the property. Annie, the owner, came down and welcomed us after we arrived and gave us a tour of our cottage and her beautiful peninsula. Great people and amazing hospitality! We could not have asked for a better experience!” – Alice
“We had a wonderful stay in the Cardinal Cottage. The cottage was adorable with a boutique feel, with gorgeous views of the water. The property was amazing!

Dallas Voice Visits Sunrise Point
” … it’s the perfect excursion to recharge …”
We were honored to host Mr. Arnold Jones – Executive Editor from the Dallas Voice. We think he captured so much about our property and invite you to spend a few minutes and read about Sunrise Point from his perspective.
Where do I even start? If there were an option to give 6 stars, I’m not sure it would be enough! My girlfriend and I needed a weekend getaway, not too far from Austin. Casey, Ann, and Sue have created an absolutely beautiful retreat-style oasis at Sunrise Point. From the lakefront views to the aesthetically flawless cottage details, down to the Turkish Cotton linens, everything about this stay promoted rest, relaxation, and escape from the noise of everyday life! I had high expectations based on other reviews and they were all exceeded! In the words of Anne & Sue, “you arrive at Sunrise Point as a guest but you leave as family”, and it’s true. Such a lovely place to stay, and truly amazing people worth knowing. We can’t wait to return and bring our friends.
