House has large kitchen, dining and living area with fireplace and windows across width of house overlooking Canyon Lake. There are 3 additional 'living areas' outside: the 'back' porch directly off the house with ceiling fans and a large picnic table that seats 10; the lower deck with two tables providing seating for 8; a stone patio nestled in oaks and cedars just above the Lake level. A hot tub is on a separate extended deck where evenings can be enjoyed under the star-lit night and overlooking the Lake. Deer visit each morning and evening looking for corn (and in between if you will feed them). Many will eat from your hand. Enjoy water activities in front of the house where you can kayak, boat, sail or play with PWC's. They can be anchored just offshore. Or if you prefer, take a swim and enjoy the cool, refreshing Lake. You may prefer to sit on the swing on the back porch and just watch others below enjoying water activities.
What you have to look forward to!: Feed the deer that congregate at the front door (some will feed from your hand!). Watch the numerous boaters/jet-skiers and other water activity from the privacy of the back porch or lower deck. Enjoy the hot tub while watching the sunset over Canyon Lake or the moon rise above you--or a star-lit night with a shooting star or two--or three! Take the steps down to the Lake to take a dip in the cool. clear, refreshing water of Canyon Lake. Get the kids and go fishing at the water's edge. These are just a few of the amenities available to you if you decide to 'hang' around the house.
Don't Forget to Plan Carefully for the Sunset!: Gather round with your cool refreshments of choice and settle in to watch the unforgettable sunset. Each evening is different so you don't want to miss the show! As the fireball finally settles down behind the hills, toast the wonderful day, ring the bell (located on the back porch) and plan for the next fun-filled day!

Boat launch is less than one mile from the house. A short 10-minute drive takes you to Crane's Mill Marina where boat slips can be rented on a daily basis and motor/pontoon/sail boat and jet-ski rentals are available. There is a restaurant accessible from the Lake as well as a front drive for vehicles. Drive 15 to 20 minutes to Hwy 306 to tube or fly-fish on the Guadalupe River. Awesome shopping is available in Winberley, Bourne, Gruene, Fredricksbrg, the outlet malls in New Braunfels and San Marcos and, of course, Austin and San Antonio--all can be reached within 30 to 60 minutes (with exception of Fredricksberg which is closer to 80 minutes). Gruene offers live music nightly (summer) in places like historical Gruene Hall. Restaurants abound in these areas or you may prefer a simple home-delivered pizza from Startzville.
Other Activities: Parasailing, Kayaking.
Why the Owner Chose Canyon Lake: We love the Hill Country and environment. There are so many activities in the area--we are half way between San Antonio and Austin. With such convenience, we have best of all worlds--water and related activities, beautiful scenery, rural living but close proximity to major metropolitan areas.
