VRBO Bear stayed here: We found this property to be beary special
Kingsland house description
This house is remarkable for its beauty and convenience. It boasts a large, shaded lot, with covered boat dock on open water. We are located on the Colorado arm, so the water is always clean and cool. Sunsets are beautiful on the dock.
The main house is very spacious and has two bedrooms and two baths, with and additional 'bunk bed closet'. A third bedroom is located in the charming front cabin, which includes a sitting area and mini-fridge. The kitchen is equipped with new appliances and a breakfast island. This home is tastefully decorated and the view from the house through the large screened in porch is lovely. Many hours can be spent swimming and fishing off the dock, taking in views and relaxing on the screened in porch.
This was the perfect place to start the new year, and a wonderful winter vacation getaway! I would like to try it again when the weather warms up to take better advantage of the great outside space, which includes a perfectly manicured, shaded lawn that leads down to the sheltered dock on the lake. We enjoyed spending time both indoors and outside. Even on the water, because it's winter, it was quiet and relaxing. We hung out on the dock soaking in the winter rays and getting some fishing in. There is a stop between the house and the dock that has 4 comfy lounge chairs and a BBQ grill (which we used a few times). A perfect spot for relaxing!
The lake house itself is a pleasant space, clean and uncluttered with a back wall of windows facing out onto the Lake and Hill Country. I spent quite a bit of time enjoying the gorgeous sunset views and peaceful atmosphere. There is a great ping-pong table in the large screened patio, along with lounging chairs and an eating area. There are traditional board games (we played a lot of Yahtzee and Clue). They also provided a stack of good movies to choose from. The couch and TV area are perfect for movie watching for a family, so comfortable!
The house is perfect for small kids. The children found the “secret” closet bunk beds as soon as we got there, and were so very excited! The beds there were furnished with a giant stuffed animal each – how fun! They had a really great time playing in that space. This house is also well outfitted for those travelling with a baby. There are baskets of baby toys and covers on every outlet.
And though you feel like you're miles away from any sort of commercial outlet, Kingsland is just down the road with a grocery store - just in case. There is a quaint train depot restaurant that I would recommend. Some of the travelers also ventured to Longhorn Caverns for a tour and had a great time.

Year Purchased: 2007
Why the Owner Chose Kingsland: We chose to buy a house on Lake LBJ because it is a constant level lake, located about 50 miles from Austin. It's close to Legends Golf Course, Longhorn Cavern, The Slab, and Marble Falls for shopping and restaurants. The lot is sublime, with large trees and attractive landscaping.
