This Texas Hill Country vacation rental is nestled on 85’ of Lake LBJ waterfront and situated under a canopy of 200 year-old Live Oak and Pecan trees. Cool Waters Lake LBJ cabin rental is the ideal spot to rest, relax, swim and fish, as you enjoy one of Lake LBJ’S best kept secrets!

Cool Waters cabin rental is a local favorite swimming hole offering both a peaceful and scenic experience. The good news is you can also safely jet ski, water ski and wake board from this location. The large boulders discourage watercraft from roaring down the Colorado River at Cool Waters, which means the water is NEVER choppy or busy. A haven for fishing, swimming, kayaking and canoeing, picnics or just relaxing, Cool Waters is a favorite vacation location.

Cool Waters cabin rental has added many new features over the last few years that include a waterfront deck with fire pit, new flooring, newly remodeled bathrooms, new countertops and new dishwasher and disposal added Fall 2012. Summer 2017 updates include - remodeled kitchen, new flooring, new paint and ping-pong table

Peaceful Cool Waters

  • 4 of 5

The house is loaded with amenities and is on a beautiful property with towering trees. It is a guest house to a main house that is very close. Owners who seem to live there full-time were very respectful of our privacy. Too bad the zoning in the area allows for houses to be built super close to each other. Next door neighbor's home is exceedingly close, but it really wasn't any issue. No wi-fi. Suggestion: since there's no ceiling fan in front bedroom, a oscillating fan would be nice. We were so grateful and happy that our dog was allowed to stay too! The nearby winery Perissos is very nice and they allow dogs too (outside where they offer tastings!) We had a great time! Thank you!!

Overall the place was great. The owners were very gracious and answered any questions we had.

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful lake and scenery and outstanding decks all around the house. swimming or in my case floating to the rocks was very relaxing. The only negatives were the kitchen bench and oven. Don't sit on one end of the bench without someone on the other end or you will tip over. The oven takes a long time to heat up. Other than that, the place is amazing and relaxing.

Awesome location close to state parks and winery! We visit Lake LBJ often and this is our favorite swimming and fishing spot. Highly recommend if you enjoy kayak fishing or paddle boarding.

Perfect Colorado River Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous place on the water. The location is a quiet part of the river with beautiful lawn and small dock, perfect for jumping, diving, sunbathing and stargazing. Above the dock and expansive lawn is the house with a big deck and table that would seat 8 with built in benches surrounding it. The recently remodeled house is a large two bedrooms very comfortable beds and pillows . large open den and dining area looking out toward the deck and the water. There were plenty of extras too, fire pit with s'mores fixings, excellent high heat grill, noodles, two single and one double kayak with easy launch with lifejackets. There were 3 a/c's with individual control that kept the place very comfortable. There were many small touches that were welcoming, the extra toiletries, band-aids, flashlight and bird watching binoculars. The owners were nice enough to warn of the LCRA closing the river and surrounding lakes while the flood control gates were open and work with us if we wanted to cancel. I recommend it.

Senior Girl Getaway

  • 5 of 5

During the week, four of us "senior ladies" went for nearby golf (Lighthouse, 15 minutes away; Legends is even closer) and hours of bridge. We had plenty of room, all the amenities we needed (except wine glasses - bring your own) and a lovely lakefront setting. It was very clean inside! There's plenty of outdoor patio seating with a view of the water, and lovely mature trees. We brought a German Shepherd who was quite comfortable (and welcome) there. There are 2 resident dogs but they're in a fenced area away from the house; there are a couple of cats that come and go. The only downside for us (non-boaters) was easy access to swimming. We noticed families playing on the rocks off their boats, but unless you know how to lower the jet ski deck, it's a big step into/out of the water. Water is dark if you're squeamish - it's lake water. It seems to clear up after they have an upstream dam release. It's also a little steep going from the patio down to the water. It's in a quiet community and was very peaceful; we didn't see anyone else for 2 whole days - or hear anyone! Relaxing! We'd love to come again.
