Recent Lake LBJ property reviews

  • Wonderful vacation and family time

    "Had a wonderful time with my family at this property. The house is well stocked with all the amenities that you could need for cooking and relaxing. Property is located on the deep water section of the Colorado river with a wonderful 2 story dock/deck with boat and jet ski lifts with easy access to the Llano river and Lake LBJ. The house is a little older but very well kept, with a nice yard, view and dock and a great place to relax, enjoy the views and the river. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to spend some family time together or just as good for couples on the river and surrounding areas."

  • A Great Getaway Location

    "My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay at this lake house. It's really a house and not a cabin but who cares, it's a super place to relax, watch the world go by, do some boating, canoeing, fishing etc. The house is set up very nicely with great beds with cotton sheets, tiled floors, L shaped sofa, stuffed chair, big TV, fire place and has an open floor plan. On top of that, you are just a short walk/stone's throw from the lake and small boat slip/dock. We spent a lot of time out on the front porch where we sat watching the deer, boaters, and green grass during the day and bar-b-q'ed in the evenings. There's only one house closeby and it was vacent. A few of the neighbors were here for the weekend, mainly middle aged adults, quiet and always waved back. Nice people! You can take long walks or jog around the area as there is a lot of level land and gently sloping hills that afford you nice glimpses of the lake. I loved just walking down to the lake, at the end of the neighborhood, with my 8 year old Pointer and watch the ducks, geese, boaters and let the world go by. I would recommend the lake house to anyone that is looking for a change to staying in condos or hotels in Horse Shoe Bay, Kingsland is only 15 minutes away and offers HEB for groceries, gas stations and fast food locations. Marble Falls is only another 10 minutes from there. Stay away from the local grocery/hardware store. It's pricey! There is a really good sandwich/pizza place just across the street from grocery, where you can get good food. We will definately be back! Jay"

Be warned, the cavern is said to be haunted! So much so, that brave visitors may choose to accompany one of the ghost hunts held here.
