About Amy Powell

I grew up in Canyon, TX, where The Cottage is located. I have loved this house ever since a friend's family rented it a short time while we were in high school. I never dreamed that one day, I would own it and rent it as well! Our family bought it in 2006 and it became my home until last year when my husband and I got married. I couldn't bring myself to part with the house and so once again it has become a vacation rental. In the years I have had it, we have replaced the windows, gutted and remodeled the kitchen, scraped popcorn off of ceilings, and a 100 other things that have made it like it is today.

Amy Powell purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Amy Powell chose Texas

This property is so special because after having had it for several years, I have been able to really fine tune all the details of the house to make it very comfortable for guests. I've made it exactly how I would want to find a vacation rental with special touches, attention to detail and lots of fun amenities.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage has so many wonderful features. The front porch with a swing is a nice place to relax, while still seeing people go to and fro. The backyard has privacy, a hot tub, a gazebo covered patio, hammock, bikes, and outdoor games. Inside, you will find basic toiletries like you would in a hotel, robes, a Keurig coffee maker, a game closet, a DVD collection, cable, internet and plenty of space for making yourself right at home. It has cottage style decor, that might even give you a few ideas for your own home!

Absolutely impeccable place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I chose the cottage for my stay while on business in Amarillo and it completely exceeded my expectations. The rate was perfect and the amenities were on par with any 5 star hotel. I prefer staying at quiet locations where I can relax while I work. This home is above and beyond any hotel suite or bed and breakfast. The home is spotless clean and the yard is very private on a very quiet street. Amy has added so many touches of home that I wished I could have stayed a little longer to enjoy this wonderful home. I even invited my client and his wife to dinner and they were quite impressed by the decor. My client's wife commented that anything you could possibly need was provided. After dinner we sat on the patio in the yard and enjoyed a nice bottle of wine. Amy has thought of everything. The rooms are larger than the pictures portray and the beds are very comfortable. If you are considering this location I strongly recommend you stay here. The house is immaculate and the location is perfect. I plan on staying here again on my next trip to the area.

Thank you Amy......................The Cottage is simply spectacular!

The cottage was the perfect home away from home! Every need is met in this very well-apportioned, comfortable home. The hot tub in the back yard is perfect after a day of hiking in the canyon. Can't wait to come back!

The Cottage week in July

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed the space and options allowed for our visit. I did surprise the grandkids a couple times because the bathroom door does not completely latch and I am sure this was more amusing to me than to them. The grill is a nice feature and your kitchen was exceptionally well set up for our visit. Thank you for a great job.

Property inside and out well set up and organized. Extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Loved sitting outside in back yard swing loungers with gas grill for use. Did not use hot tub, but would have loved the opportunity. There is no off street parking. That would be nice but only street parking. Street is extra wide so curb parking not really a problem. The Cottage is extremely well organized with two separate bedrooms with bath inbetween. Living room is also very comfortable for TV watching or just sitting around with friends visiting. Kitchen and dining area is complete. Amy has creamer, various sugars and coffee pods for morning times. Nice to have a home away from home at days end of activity in Palo Duro Canyon or Caprock Canyon State parks. Also Amarillo is 15 min north with museums, eateries as well as Canyon has. The Cottage has immediate walk in and ahh feel for comfort that one has arrived. Easy to settle into quickly. Amy is easy to communicate with and offered advice for food out as well as activities around. Wonderful experience all around.

Very nice cottage, great location - normal maintenance issues

  • 4 of 5

Three of us shared this cottage for a few days in June 2017. It was a great location for visiting Palo Duro Canyon, the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum, and the Buffalo not-Lake National Wildlife Refuge. :-) We really appreciated the care that has gone into this home. The bathroom shower was magnificent!

Unfortunately for us the hot tub we had planned on using heavily was out of commission, the coffeemaker did not work, and the yard was covered with broken tree limbs from the huge hailstorm that passed through the night before us.

These are normal maintenance issues and I'm sure Amy will take care of them before your visit. I highly recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: Wayne, Thanks again for your stay! We always strive to maintain The Cottage to the highest standard and these issues have been resolved, but I apologize it was an issue for your group...I know that can be a real bummer! I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and we will hope to have you back again sometime!
