Guestbook comments from the manager

"We had a great time and the Oak House was perfect for our family. They loved the pool table, the pin ball machine, and all the board games. We laughed and played together late every night. And they loved the water at that location on the lake. No fast boats going by...no jet skis zooming by...just the peaceful water around those rocks. It was a perfect place to swim together and play in the lake without any worries. Anyway - great house - great accommodations - great memories. Thank you so much."



“The pictures were great, but they did not do it justice”, “I didn’t realize it was so big”,



“The view is absolutely gorgeous”,



“We had no idea this area existed, what a find!”

Thanksgiving on the water

  • 4 of 5

13 of us spent 3 nights at the Oak House. We found it to be very clean, well equipped with chairs on the balcony/patio, and a beautiful view out back of the yard, trees and water. Beds were comfortable. Pool table was a great hit. (Don't you hate it when you can't beat your grandson??). Second refrigerator was appreciated and nice touch of a bag of ice for our use. Stove and microwave worked very well. There were a couple areas for improvement:

1 - the TV is the MBR is terribly small

2 - not having a place to hang clothes in the MBR was a bummer

3 - wife says she could have used a few more cooking utensils when cooking Thanksgiving meal for 13

Overall, we basically had a very good time with our family at the Oak House

As an aside, the addition of a fire pit in the back yard where you could "sit around the camp fire" and roast hot dogs and marshmallows would be a great boon to this nice property.

Best swimming ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is a super safe and fun place to swim (unless there is dam water release), our children had the best day ever. The house was perfect for our group (3 families with 6 children in total). Additionally, there are many things to do in the area (wineries, State Park, biking...). Great weekend.

Oak House is the best!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at the Oak House and enjoyed it both times. It's location is the greatest selling point for this property. The house is well equipped for the needs of several families. The shade provided by the large trees makes for a cool afternoon. The swimming is the best because of the rocks in the river and no boats speeding by. The boat dock is a great place for the kids to fish. At sunrise the river is as smooth as glass and offers a relaxing way to start your day. This property is definitely on our list for a return visit.

Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location just below the dam. Picturesque view and a great time swimming. Splash boat rentals will drop off a boat right to your dock. Slept 14 people which was great for our family. We brought our lab and he swam to his hearts content. Loved the foosball table and pool table. Easy drive from Austin!

Excellent spot for family holiday...

  • 5 of 5

This was a good experience for our big family. We were happy to have a place to bring our dog. The home is equipped with everything we needed to play and cook and relax. The rocks out in the river are super cool and perfect location. It is a beautiful piece of property. We played pool, games, foosball, and watch UT and Notre Dame game. Our cousins were able to pull up to the dock with their wakeboard boat. A/C and all appliances worked fine. It has 2 king rooms, 1 queen room and a bunk room with 4 twins, and a few couches we didn't use. There was no internet and that wasn't a big deal, you are on vacation, enjoy the moments together. We would go back.
