Songbird Cottage 2015

4.0 on June 08, 2015

This was our second stay in the cozy Songbird cottage. All the comforts of home tucked into a wooded parkland. Close to everything but seems hidden away. If we are in the Houston area again, hope to stay again.

Best Getaway in Houston!

Found this gem by accident, but will be returning! Off the beaten path, but close to everything at the same time. Super cute and very quiet. Quite possibly the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Lots of nice, relaxing extras that made my stay perfect! Owner is a very nice guy!

A quiet place to heal

4.8 on October 18, 2014

Where do I even start. The Songbird Cottage far exceeded our expectations The cottage and surroundings are much more than we thought it would be. The owner, Tim, emailed, called and kelp us informed on everything. Upon arriving, Tim greeted us and showed us around, when I walked into the cottage, I was so excited at the antique furniture, decorations, bed, far exceeded the online pictures. The screened in porch gave us sweet moments of hearing birds sing and quiet time. Tim, is such an awesome host. He offered the cottage to us before normal check in and allowed us to stay beyond our check out time. He is so accommodating. We live only 45 minutes away but I have had a lot of medical issues and we missed every fun thing we had planned for the summer. My doctor did not want me to go far so this was perfect. It uplifted my low spirits, it gave myself and husband 3 days of quiet healing time from doctors and hospitals. I Can tell you, I do not want to leave. But real life continues . Thank you, Tim, for making our three days here so special. We love this cottage and god willing will return as soon as we can. Maybe next time I will be healthier . May Gods blessings cover each person who stays here and give needed peace , rest and healing. Thank you again, Tim..... Larry and carol

Great Place for a Honeymoon

4.6 on September 09, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Songbird Cottage for a few days during our honeymoon. It was absolutely wonderful. The privacy was amazing. We enjoyed how secluded it was, yet very close to everything. The two acres are beautiful and the cottage is very charming. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to spend a few days in The Woodlands.

Relax and still be in the middle of everything....

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!!

Hidden Treasure - Peaceful Getaway

5 on April 12, 2014

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

Very Nice B&B

4.0 on March 21, 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.

Quiet, Clean, Secluded, Great Stay

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".

Great hidden B & B

4.0 on November 18, 2013

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

Nice and secluded

3.8 on October 08, 2013

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!

About the innkeepers

I have an interest in many things; including family, music, science, sports, traveling, entertainment and outdoor activities. I really love meeting new people and have found that some of the best I've met frequent bed and breakfasts. So, Songbird Cottage has afforded me an opportunity that I truly appreciate.
