at its Best
Take a step back in time when life was slower
and the world around you had sounds and smells that created
Step into a country cottage in the Gulf Coast
area of Texas, created to provide you with an escape from today's
fast world and an opportunity to appreciate nature at its best.
See yourself sitting in the big wicker chairs watching the sun go
down and the hummingbirds feed.
Imagine yourself walking up to the redwood
cottage, looking at the steep tin roof, wishing a rain shower
would come and lull you to sleep.
As you approach the door, you notice it is
hand-made from old barn wood, and you may wonder what lies beyond
this rustic portal. The door opens to a large, warm room with a
beamed ceiling and antique doors. Old wood covers three walls and
the floors are tile. The cottage feels cozy, with a spacious and
A living room and a kitchen area are in view as
you enter the front door. To your left is a large queen-sized
sleeper sofa, which you can fold out and slide in, and then
snuggle up to watch a great movie. You may want to tip-toe into
the kitchen area and check out the famous snack cupboard and see
what goodies have been left for you. Better yet, reach on top of
the snack cupboard and turn on the CD player for some romantic
music to relax to or just sit at the old kitchen table and watch
the bird pond: who knows what action you may see.
The kitchen is a modified kitchen with almost
every appliance. Your hosts will provide you with farm eggs,
bagels, jams, cereal, coffee, milk, juice and fruit. You decide
when to eat your breakfast. You have your own little icebox and
all of the utensils: your retreat is fully self-contained.
A few feet further into the main room and you
will see an old rescued barn door from a ranch in West Texas.
Behind this door is the bedroom. The bed is a queen bed with a
little history built right into it... the lights were rescued from
a 1930's house scheduled to be destroyed. You can lie in bed and
watch the birds feeding in their trays or open the windows and
listen to the water from the bird pond and invite the sounds of
nature that surround you.
At Cygnet, you can enjoy bed and breakfast
lodging accommodations with vacation rental independence and
watching is an awesome spectacle during any season in this
area. Rockport has attracted birders from all over the world
because of the large variety of birds which pass through this
Flyway. There are beaches not too far way, along with the State
Aquarium, museums, state parks and wildlife refugees. The cabin is
only 20 miles to the Gulf of Mexico and 33 miles to Corpus
Christi. Rockport Beaches and Town, chartered fishing trips, and
guided birding trips are just minutes away. Port Arkansas beaches
are 20 minutes away, and Houston and San Antonio are only three
hours away. As the day comes to an end, slip into the Country
Jacuzzi (also known as a Cattle Trough)... lie back and sip your
beverages, watching the stars. Total seclusion allows you to truly
enjoy this tub of water!
Come experience a true escape. Let your senses
be reborn with the sights and sounds that Cygnet: A Secluded
Country Cottage on six acres can provide for you and your loved
