The Songbird Cottage is a fantastic three-room cottage, nestled on a wooded lot located just a few miles from the center of The Woodlands shopping and dining and all the surrounding towns and attractions. Upon arriving, we were cordially greeted by the ground's ambassador, Godfrey the cat, who remains outside in case guests have cat allergies. The cottage is set aside from the main house with it's own private parking and entrance. The grounds are well lit so returning in the evening after a full day is not an issue. Tim has dedicated the backyard to the comfort of his guests by providing a beautiful, shaded sitting area complete with a fountain and working fireplace. My wife and I were amazed at the the great lengths guest needs have been anticipated. Just inside the screened-in porch were bug spray and sun screen to help manage the Houston summers. In addition, there were extra towels, blankets, all the needed bathroom amenities inside. Although the cottage is decorated with antique armoires, a four-poster bed, and vintage tableware, there is satellite TV and wi-fi, for those not quite ready to "cut the cord", and a fully equipped, private kitchen. The cottage has its own HVAC system so the guests can adjust the temperature in the cottage to their liking. Allowing the guests to make breakfast in the private kitchen makes for a very relaxing, lazy morning. We highly recommend the Songbird Cottage. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return! Thank you Tim!!

My wife and I enjoyed a marvelously refreshing five day stay at Songbird Cottage March 28 through April 01, 2014. Although I had read the positive reviews and looked forward to our stay, my expectations were greatly exceeded. Tucked away in a peaceful setting with greetings from Cuddles the dog and Godfrey the cat, we found a wonderful spacious cottage ready for us to retreat from the hustling pace of Houston and the I-45 corridor of traffic. There was indeed quite the chorus of birdsong which could be enjoyed on the plaza-patio with fountain and fireplace. It was a great pleasure to meet Tim Lockwood, the innkeeper who readily customized the breakfast fare in the full kitchen. It was a nice change to be preparing our own meal at a leisurely pace. We are getting more acquainted with B&B travel experiences and our stay at Songbird Cottage certainly has made us eager for more. I look forward to a return visit. Shelton H. April 12, 2014

This cottage, though small, is very nice and well maintained. We particularly enjoyed the screened sun porch and the very large patio with the fish pond and fire place. A very good value for the price. The owner lives on the property and goes out of his way to assure your visit is enjoyable.

This B&B is exceptional. Clean, roomy, period furnishings, secluded, comfortable. Queen bed was excellent. Large tile shower was wonderful. All in all a "10".

A great hide-away in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Woodlands. One of the most unusual and unique B & B's we have ever stayed in and we would recommend it to any B & b lovers. Larry & Cynthia Wilson

This was a nice little house to stay in for a weekend away from my busy life! My sister and I enjoyed a crafty sister's weekend, drank coffee on the porch in the morning and had everything we needed for the weekend. Tim, the owner, was nice and flexible and very responsible to my inquiries. Thanks for a great weekend!

Songbird Cottage was exactly what my husband and I were looking for in a weekend getaway. We were close enough to the 'real world', but we had the feeling that we were far enough away from the hustle and bustle and in our 'own world'. We highly recommend Songbird Cottage to anyone looking for an escape. Tim is a wonderful host who thought of everything! We will definitely be back! Suzanne and Linn

An oasis in the heart of Spring! Surrounded by lush greenery and swaying bamboo trees, this B&B is quiet and peaceful. I needed a personal getaway to re-energize and relax my mind. Songbird Cottage has a true cottage feel. The bedroom and living room were very comfortable. Plenty of ceiling fans and A/C unit were ample for comfort. The kitchen was PRECIOUS and stocked with everything I needed. Tim provided my personal breakfast favorites to the "T", plus more! The bathroom ~ completely updated and towels were fresh. I walked the 3 acre property and listened to the birds sing! Lovely patio! Bed and Breakfasts' typically have a community table for guests to be served. However, this trip I needed time to myself and at my pace. The self serve breakfast is a rare find and more than perfect for my visit. Thank you Tim for providing a place of retreat!
