Canyon Lake house description

The Keene Kottage was built in the early 60's by my husband's grandparents. We have opened our home for you to enjoy the beauty of the view of Canyon Lake. We have a 3 bedroom approximately 1,000 sf home with 2 queen size beds, 1 full size bed, & 1 twin bed and it is very cozy and comfortable, it is by far not the mansion on the hill, however it is on a hill that overlooks the lake and is absolutely breath taking. We can sleep 7 adults comfortably in beds. Canyon Lake has a rock bottom and the colors of the water are emerald green & blue. Canyon Lake is gorgeous, reminds me of ocean water, and if you have not seen it, you should definitely put it on your bucket list. Boat Ramp with public access and with a floating dock is at the bottom of the hill, less than 1 mile from our driveway. We are 20 minutes from New Braunfels, 15 minutes from Gruene, 30 minutes from The Outlet Malls in San Marcos, 45 minutes from downtown San Antonio, 1 hour south of Austin, and an 1 1/2 hour scenic drive to Fredricksburg. We would love to have you as our guest. Ray, Kay, & Seth Keene

Keywords: Lake House overlooking Canyon Lake, within 5 minutes from the Guadalupe River, 20 minutes to the nearest golf course, home with a view, and a gorgeous sunset.

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: We love to ski, fish, shop, float the river, go to amusement parks, concerts, live theater, festivals, eat out, watch the wildlife, & watch the sunsets. We are able to do all of these things either at our home or within a short drive from our home.

              Why the Owner Chose Canyon Lake:
              To keep the home in the Keene family, enjoy the spectacular view and someday retire there.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Relaxing, reading a good book overlooking the lake, feeding the deer that come up to you and eat out of your hand.
