This is a perfect getaway from the city for a weekend retreat, a week long vacation or an even longer escape to Horseshoe Bay and the constant level lake of LBJ.
Why stay in a condo with shared walls, when you can have the space and privacy that comes with a private house that is still in the heart of it all? If you are an out-of-town member of Horseshoe Bay Resort, we are within walking distance of the marina, spa and yacht club.
We have a gourmet kitchen with a separate bar, granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances, a spacious covered patio that can seat 8 on very comfortable outdoor furniture and a separate outdoor fire pit and dining area. Bring your boat as we have a place to tie it up too.
We have many recreational items for families and friends including basketballs, bikes, and lots of indoor board games, DirecTV, stereo with iPod adapter, indoor and outdoor speakers and wireless access.
Inside we have a large great room with lots of windows overlooking the lake, and enough beds to comfortably sleep 8 persons. We have one bedroom with a king-sized bed (master downstairs), and two bedrooms upstairs: one bedroom with a queen and one bedroom with 2 bunk beds that sleep 4. Each bedroom has its own in-room bathroom.
It is the perfect place for two families with small kids or grown children that don't mind sharing a bunk room, or a girls retreat or a romantic getaway. We have owned this beautiful home since 1999 and have had all these wonderful memories with friends and families of all ages.
Down the street is a basketball court and Quail Point, a park on the water with some sand and more outdoor picnic tables.
We own the large lot on the side of the house which makes for great games of backyard baseball, football, soccer or you name it!. Great for kids as our three sons grew up playing in the water, in the trees and on the side lot.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We bought this house in 1999 and completely took it to the studs to rebuild it. It has been our special second home for all these years. Our sons grew up here spending countless hours, fishing, learning to wakeboard, swimming off the dock, but as they have gotten older with more commitments in Austin, we aren't able to use it as much. We briefly thought about selling it, but couldn't bare to part with it so we decided to rent it out to those whom might also fall in love with it (care for it!) and the special place that is Horseshoe Bay.
Why the Owner Chose Horseshoe Bay: I grew up coming to Horseshoe Bay with my family and my parents have a house nearby. We love the warmth of the place, that it is so close to Austin (where we live permanently) but also that it is a world away tucked in a beautiful resort and on a wonderful lake.
Horseshoe Bay is located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country and located within 90 minutes of Austin, San Antonio, New Braunfels, and Fredericksburg. Austin is 1 hour away with live music, great restaurants and abundant shopping. San Antonio is 90 minutes from Horseshoe Bay and offers a variety of restaurants, the famous River Walk, SeaWorld and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. Considered the best water park in America, Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels is also a 90 minute drive away. And if you love great German food, breweries and antique shopping, Fredericksburg is 60 minutes away. There are also at least 24 wineries within a 90 minute or less drive from Horseshoe Bay.
The Unique Benefits at this House: After looking all over Horseshoe Bay to buy, we found this house and bought it before it ever came on the market. We gutted it, lovingly rebuilt it and put in special architectural items, like wide-plank soft pine floors, wooden beams on the ceiling in the great room, and beadboard on the ceiling in the Master. This house is in the perfect location with privacy and mature trees, and is on the lake with a large side yard for our boys to play.
