About Linda Peterson

We live an hour away between Jonestown and Cedar Park across from Lake Travis. I lived in the area as a child, but my spouse is a transplant from the beautiful Lake Michigan area. I guess you'd call us lake people. We have seven grandchildren, but only two are local. The others are in Raleigh, NC. We also have three small Shih Tzu dogs that love the lake area as much as we do.

Linda Peterson purchased this house in 2007

Why Linda Peterson chose Lake LBJ

We previously had a smaller rental on Lake Travis, but sold it because water levels fluctuated so much. Lake LBJ is referred to a constant-level lake, so boating is never hampered by low water. The area is a quiet, congenial, slow-paced kind of place where folks wave as they drive by even if they don't know you.

What makes this house unique

There is a lot of wildlife wandering around - prized plants are a favorite of the local deer population. We had a very small fawn take up residence in the shady plants of our tree round in front of the house. We named this place for the two peacocks who liked to wander our property. Unfortunately, all peacocks had to be removed. Butterflies, song birds, and millions of stars on quiet nights all add up to a wonderful place to rest and relax. There are 19 parks in this city of 5,000 - one around every corner.

Fun for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation included my husband and me, our 3 teenagers and their grandparents. We made use of all this house has to offer. Our favorites were probably the kayaks and the foosball table, but we used the wii, hot tub, read several of the MANY magazines, watched DVDs, used the fire pit for smores, and top deck for star gazing. This house has plenty of outdoor seating and tables in all the various spots around the house for enjoying the view. Plenty of wildlife to see --LOTS of deer all over the neighborhood and turtles in the lake. The owner has provided pretty much anything you might need. There are life jackets and pool noodles for floating in the lake. Inside has plenty of towels, toilet paper, dishes, shampoo, trash bags. I can't think of anything we needed that wasn't there. Oh pizza delivery would have been nice, but we just drove a few minutes into Marble Falls to get our pizza fix! We booked a fishing guide who lives a few houses down and had a great morning catching fish for our dinner. The Peacock House is a great place for a relaxing vacation for all ages of people in your family!

The house was beautiful and very spacious. Beds were super comfy. Best part, the house was right on the lake with direct access if you had a boat or jet skis. There was even a kids play area right around the corner. Kayaks were a great touch.

excellent family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home over the Christmas holidays. There was plenty of room for my family of 10 to spread out and do something they enjoyed. We went kayaking and took late night walks. The kitchen was amazing to prepare our Christmas buffet. Highly recommend this home for families with children with different ages.

Leave your troubles behind!

Our group gathered at the Peacock House for a long New Year's Weekend Getaway. We were amazed with location, view, and amenities at this location. This quiet neighborhood presented as being safe for evening walks to the area park, or other waterfront locations around the shoreline. The house was clean, comfortable, and well stocked with many of those "little things" that made it easier to cook and take in the natural surroundings of Granite Sholes. The beds were very comfortable and made for restful sleep in a very quiet location, which added to the charm of this location. Some of our group enjoyed the fishing, while others took in the hot tub on property. The owners were accessible by text and phone if we had any issues or concerns. The owner even made a special trip to attend to a repair on the holiday weekend, which ranks very high on my customer service scale. In addition, these owners left a guide book to aid our stay with local attractions, maps, and some basic housekeeping tips for the property, which helped us leave the property as we had found it. Overall, our group had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend this property to others as a gem!

Very pleased

  • 5 of 5

The peacock house was very nice and spacious. The kids loved it there. They stayed entertained with the foozball table, WII, card/board games and kayaks (cellphones were no where in sight). I loved how everything throughout the house was labeled. I definitely will Recommend the Peacock house to all of my west Texas family and friends! We are already planning our next getaway. Thank you Linda for a great stay!
