About Erin and John Shank
We are a professional couple who live in Belton, Texas. The Getaway at Lake Whitney has been our family weekend lake house for the past 25 years. When our boys left for college, we spent a year fully restoring it and are now excited to share it with the VRBO family. We are very "hand on" hosts. We are always available by phone or text, and our friend Jimmy lives next door and is available to help with any emergency that might occur.
Erin and John Shank purchased this House in 1993

Great family time at the lake
We had a most wonderful Labor Day weekend with our 3 adult children and their spouses and our 2 grandchildren (ages 3 and 5) at this family friendly lakefront home. The home was well laid out and furnished for our extended family group. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of fridge space and storage. The beds were comfy and the linens and toiletries were very nice. We played a little pitch and putt golf (bring your own wedges) and had a family whiffle ball home run hitting contest. The kids loved going down to the lake and we rented a pontoon boat and tubed on one of the days. The rocking chairs (including the child sized one) got lots of use, especially to watch the amazing sunsets. The weather was perfect and we made some precious family memories together. Thank you John and Erin for sharing your home with us!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed The Getaway at Lake Whitney. Come back again soon! Erin and John Shank
The house was very nice and as my brother called it cozy. My mom loved the back porch and wanted to sit outside as much as possible. The beds were very comfortable and kitchen had everything we needed. The ONLY thing I had a problem with was that my mom is wheelchair bound and it was very hard to get her into the bathroom. My brother wants to make sure we rent this place again next year.
Thanks so much. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Getaway. Come back again! Erin and John
Clean, comfortable, spacious
The Getaway was perfect for our stay with extended family. Plenty of space in bedrooms and common areas. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. The house was clean and well kept. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. Outdoor grilling is our “go to” cooking option and the gas grill handled burgers for the entire group. John and Erin were prompt in responding to any questions we had leading up to and during our stay. If we ever come back to the area we will be back to the Getaway.
Hi Sherry. Thanks so much for your kind comments regarding our home that we lovingly call The Getaway at Lake Whitney. We have worked hard to make it a great place for a "getaway" and we are thrilled that you and your group had a great stay. Come back soon! Erin and John
The kitchen, Views of the lake, and the back deck was breathtaking!
We were there for a married couples retreat with our church. This property was such a good fit for us! There was a lot of room they had a lot of activities right there on their property. The owners were very attentive, wanted to make sure we had everything we needed to make sure our trip was Great. We just had an amazing time. We have such a great time we decided this will be the place for our retreats from now on.
We loved this hidden secret house. The house was clean, nice, and beds were comfortable. Hope that more Home Away travelers find this gem.
