Charming, intimate cottage overlooking a pool in a garden setting. Property is a little jewel within historic residential Smithville. Heather has created a seldom achieved home town sense of place.

Heather's cottage is perfect for a couple's or family getaway. It's very well stocked with everything you would find in a hotel, plus a few extra snacks and treats. The pool is wonderful and a great way to escape the heat of summer. We loved being within walking distance to Main Street. Heather was great in communicating with us. Check-in and check-out was very simple. We highly recommend Heather's place for your next stay in Smithville.

Heather User ProfileHeather is a superhost.

I am an outdoorsy person. I love hiking, swimming, kayaking and gardening. I love cooking from scratch, coffee, and diy projects. My favorite travel destinations would include any place that had one of the following: tropical scenery, a river, outdoor activities, or a theme park. It would be my pleasure hosting you while you stay in your own private Villa! We do have a coffee pot in the Villa! Also, Smithville offers almost all of my favorite activities. There is hiking nearby at Buescher State Park, kayaking on the Colorado River, swimming in your own private pool, and gardens all around.
