Canyon Lake chateau / country house description

Plan now for your SUMMER/FALL GETAWAY. Come enjoy our beautiful lake, great weather and Texas sunshine. Panoramic lake views. Restaurants, tubing and grocery stores nearby. Don't miss out. Lake has been recently restocked with trout!

An expansive view of the crystal blue waters of Canyon Lake will greet you from almost every room in this rustic, comfortable three bedroom (plus office) home. The house overlooks the deepest part of the lake (near the dam) where, at almost any time of day, beautiful sailboats glide across the peaceful water. Look just off to the west in the evening and you’ll likely catch a colorful sunset over the nearby hills.

The large master bedroom suite, with a comfortable king-size bed, is located on the first floor. A luxurious spa Jacuzzi tub with separate shower and double sink vanity is located in the master bath.

The great room area, with generous views of the lake out every window, has comfortable, reclining leather sofas and chairs, a flat screen TV, and a wood-burning fireplace. The open concept dining room easily seats eight. The fully equipped kitchen, complete with double oven and granite countertops, will make meal preparation a breeze. Pull a barstool up to the huge center island and enjoy a quick meal. A full laundry room is located conveniently off the kitchen.

**Don't miss out!** WiFi access available.

There is also an office/bedroom on the main floor.

Upstairs in the second bedroom, a double/twin bunk bed entices the younger crowd, as well as the captivating view from their own private deck. Youngsters will be delighted with the “secret hideaway” playroom off their bedroom, fully stocked with games, toys, beanbag chairs, and a foosball/air hockey table. Last but not least, we have nicknamed our third bedroom the “tree house”, as it looks down on the lake from its’ high vantage point through it’s extensive windows. This room, equipped with a queen bed, also includes a dry sauna for a luxurious break from the ordinary.

Outside, enjoy the day on the covered porch with it’s 70+ foot wrap around deck. A convenient combination gas/charcoal grill, and tables with plenty of chairs will make for an enjoyable respite, whether just enjoying the view or having a meal or quiet drink.

The house is situated on the southern end of the lake, convenient to both Austin and San Antonio, as well as to the smaller getaway towns of New Braunfels, Wimberley, San Marcos, Gruene and Boerne. Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Sea World, the Riverwalk in San Antonio, and Schlitterbahn Water Park in New Braunfels are all easy day trips. Boat rentals are available at various locations on Canyon Lake; discount rates for military are offered at one installation. The nearby town of Sattler hosts extensive tubing outlets on the Guadalupe River, as well as numerous restaurants and bars.

The home is set up for your comfort and pleasure; we hope you will enjoy your stay here at Canyon Lake.

Families only - minimum age of responsible renting adult - 30 years old.

          Why the Owner Chose Canyon Lake:
          We live in nearby San Antonio, but whenever we visited Canyon Lake we were always amazed at how crystalline blue the water is. When we found this house we fell in love with the view of the lake as we watched the white sails of the sailboats against the blue water. Canyon Lake is in such a great location with so many quaint little towns nearby. The location is great for us because we can be to our own little 'vacation' home in less than an hour.
