Car: Necessary

The resort community of Horseshoe Bay is located on the southern-most shores of beautiful constant-level Lake LBJ, deep in the heart of rustic central Texas hill country. The immediate area offers all the trappings of a lake resort community, including several highly-acclaimed golf courses. The small towns of the Texas Hill Country are known for their charming wineries, berry and peach farms, antique shops, German bakeries, beer gardens, and Texas BBQ joints. In the spring, the hill country landscape is blanketed in wildflowers. In the summer and fall, the towns have their local art & music festivals, chili cook-offs, and of course the annual dragboat race in downtown Marble Falls.

Other Activities: napping in hammock, watching wildlife

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Growing up, our families spent several weeks every year with our cousins at our grandparent's waterfront homes. For my wife it was the Galveston shore, and for me it was the south branch of the Potomac in West Virginia.

Why the Owner Chose Horseshoe Bay:
We couldn't resist the opportunity this home gave us to one day provide the same memories for our family. Renting our home for family reunions is always extra special for us. We know we're helping create memories for your family, just like the memories which led us to buy this property!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Texas lake and river shores are often left dry as they battle the local climate. This home is on the shore of one of the very few constant level lakes in Texas, Lake LBJ. The Lower Colorado River Authority manages the dams along the Colorado River to keep this lake level constant year-round. Another benefit of our location is the LCRA preservation land opposite us on our cove. It delivers a great view of water and preservation land from the back patio and decks, with common sightings of the hill-country wildlife that calls this preservation land home.
