Descrizione

Charming cottage near ABI airport--Great location. Small full Kitchen, 53" flat screen satellite TV, Memory Foam Beds, Free Parking, Private lake with boat dock and pool access for guests. Infinity pool sits behind main house w/hot tub in pool. We have finally installed WIFI at cottage and hope it stays up and running. If yours is not running, ours is not running.

We are in central location in ABILENE on a private lake. Only the homeowners are allowed to use lake. There is a boat dock, pool/spa behind our main house for a 3 minute walk. During cold weather the spa is $40 extra to use; during warm weather it is $20 to use. This is below the cost of our operation. The neighborhood is a nice established neighborhood and people seldom move off the lake if they have lake front property. You can bring your own gear to fish off boat dock. The lot is approximately 3 acres and very private. Any additional guests over 6 people will increase the rate to $15 per guest to rent this property with a limit of 8 guests.

Guests have access to all ABILENE festivals, zoo (close to properly), Taylor County Coliseum is two blocks from cottage. Even though this is urban living there is quite a bit of wildlife in and around the property (i.e., fishing herons, owls, foxes, prairie dogs, many species of water fowl and fish). Bring some fishing gear or stop at local Walmart for kid gear & live bait. Bring a kayak and cruise/fish on the lake.

If we are at home, we try to stop and say hello, especially to explain where to park if more than one car. We have new irrigation system so be careful to stay off grass. All irrigation is from lake when allowed by Lake District. We think you will find new infinity swimming pool behind the main house on property a great place to view of the lake at all times of day. Always try to give me a heads up if you plan to use pool and time of day so we can coordinate! Note: $20 per use to hear hot tub during warm months, $40 per use during cold months.

The area is part of a historic development on Campbell Drive by the original owners: West Texas Utilities (now known as AEP) who developed the lake and used it for generation of electricity. All of the power plant remnants have long since been removed and the lake is quite clear for boating, swimming and all water sports. Sixty years ago the area was considered "out in the woods" and was a popular spot for picnics and day lake adventures.

There is not good public transportation so a car is a must. If you are coming from Europe you should know that air conditioning is also a must for any property that you might be considering in the Southern U.S.

Please note there is not a door between the large bedroom and the TV area. This is not a privacy issue, rather, it may pose problems with small children who need to be enclosed for sleeping purposes.

Due to age of property, it was constructed so that you must walk through a small bedroom to access the only bathroom in the cottage.

The owner recently had severe increase in blood sugar so there is a new treadmill in cottage that is covered and sits in corner, out of the way of all traffic.

-Please review small notebook in cottage and notify owners if you plan to host a party or event so there are no misunderstandings or conflicts, especially w/parking . . . you could get blocked in for hours if you don't pay attention to where you are parking.
.
-This property is not suitable for toddlers and very young children as it is surrounded by water.

-Guests are responsible for city, county, and state occupancy tax upon departure. An envelope and tax chart is provided for ease of figuring the proper amount. If you have any questions, please ask me.

-No smoking permitted in the house or within 20 feet of property.

-A $20 additional fee is required for hot tub per use (unfortunately the gas bill for one use is actually higher than this price) and if the weather has a low of 40F during the 24 hour period of requested use, A $40 additional fee for hot tub per use is imposed. But you get a great sky, sunset and outdoor planetarium if the sky is clear.

-Please do not park on the grass, there is plenty of parking in and around the property as it is set off of an esplanade (Campbell Drive) maintained by the City of Abilene on the small road outside the rock fence. We have had trouble with broken sprinkler systems within our property. Our irrigation specialist loves it when someone drives over a sprinkler head.

A more extensive list of house rules are found in notebook in the guest cottage.

Thanks for your business. In spite of the continue renovations we plan for cottage, we must take it a few steps at a time due to the low cost of the nightly rate compared to the cost of making repairs and updates. But eventually we will get there. Thank you for your business and (I think) all of the glitches are listed on the web site so you can review them prior to booking. Hope to see you again and hope you had a successful stay, business wise! M.A. Fergus

Had a great, comfortable, quiet stay at the Flowers Guest House. Mary Ann met us upon arrival and told us all about the house, her family, and the history of the property. During our stay, the four of us agreed the two queen beds are a dream to sleep on. Boys were fully entertained with large TV and comfy couch. Location was easy to get to, right between family out in the skirts of town and everything else Abilene has to offer. The neighbourhood is gorgeous, if I ever move to Abilene, I'd want to live there. Since we're brother/sister couples, this wasn't a huge deal, but access to the bathroom is only through a bedroom. We all slept together on the queen beds to fix that, as not to enter the bedroom (with the smaller bed) and constantly wake them up. Apart from that, a cute place to call home as long as you'll be in Abilene. Way better than a hotel, and we'd definitely return.

"Wow, I just checked the wifi and it was working fine. I think I'm going to have to hire another person to take care of that b/c first workman never got it working properly. I have to get on waiting list to do that. And thanks for letting me know about the walking through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. And also the one bedroom that does not have a door that closes. I've had a few comments about that but keep forgetting to mention that in information. Glad you made it home safely. Mary Ann Fergus

Our family loved this small cottage. It was just what we needed for the 3 of us. We were visiting relatives in Abilene and were able to gather together at the guest house (5 of us) to hang out, eat, and play games. The cottage was very clean and Mary Ann was a wonderful hostess. We took advantage of the pool & hot tub option and really enjoyed watching the sun set over the lake. There are two queen beds in one room and one double bed in another. The couch has a pull-out bed. The kitchen is smallish (think cottage), but we were able to prepare meals just fine. Overall, it was a great place at a reasonable price.

Great house - better than any hotel in Abilene. The furnishings are just right and the beds are super comfortable. We recommend staying here over any hotel.

We had a great 4-day stay at Mary Ann's little cottage. The property is gorgeous and a great location on the lake! She was very gracious letting us access the dock and the swing set and the huge outdoor chess set. My kids had a blast! I was so impressed with the high quuality furniture and bedding in the cottage. The pictures do not do it justice. You can tell Mary Ann takes pride in providing high quality accomodations. My husband and i, our two kids and my mother had a great time!

This was the perfect place to stay for an ACU event. The property was as described, we had much more privacy and space than a hotel for less money, and the host was excellent with communication.

I am an attorney in Abilene, Texas as is my husband. We live in the main house where the AirBNB cottage is located. It is far enough away that you will not notice our presence most of the time. Our children are grown and in fact our son is recently married to his law school sweetheart who also practice at our law firm Fergus & Fergus, LLP here in Abilene. Our youngest child is still in Graduate school in Yale pursing a Masters of Divinity. We are active in the community, and have many friends and family in the area. We attend St. Paul United Methodist Church (since 1954--family membership) and have served in many philanthropic projects in Abilene for all of the years we have resided here. The Cooler months in Texas are beautiful and if you are looking for a cozy, quiet place to stay, this is the right place for you.
