Why Sarah Farr chose Marble Falls

Farr Side is located of four acres in the Texas Hill Country with 250 feet of Lake Travis waterfront. Located at the far west end of Lake Travis, you will see beautiful shorelines, abundant wildlife, and few boats. You will have little competition for smooth water. Bring your own gas though. There are no nearby marinas. You will have room for outdoor games and places to be alone. Large rooms with high ceilings add to the spacious feeling even when the weather outside is not so good. Large trees cool the property even in the heat of the summer.

What makes this House unique

Farr Side is located 2 miles down a dead end county road, an hour or so west of Austin. There are a few other properties on large lots on the county road. There is a large hill country ranch on one side of the county road as you drive in to Farr Side. Many days you may see one of several species of exotic game on the ranch. There is a county park with a boat ramp a quarter mile from Farr Side. Farr Side is only 8 miles from Marble Falls which has several good restaurants, including the well known Bluebonnet Cafe.

                                                                Great houses for a group

                                                                We enjoyed our family get together at the Farr side. The houses are comfortable and clean. The property is well kept and lovely for this area. We did have some septic problems the last day but the owners took care of the issue. It was the hottest day of the summer and the ac worked great! In the fall or spring this would be even better!

                                                                It was a beautiful property!

                                                                We had an amazing time, the view was beautiful and the atmosphere was so relaxing.

                                                                Great accomodations for multi-family trip!

                                                                Jill L.

                                                                What a welcoming place! It felt like a home and was very well stocked with all the necessaries, plus all the little things you usually forget and have to make a run to the store for. I personally talked with the owners twice and they were very proactive in communicating directions and very responsive with our questions. We had 10 kids and 7 adults in total and there was a comfortable bed for everyone. Situated on a quiet spot on the lake, we only saw a few boats pass. Lots of spots to sit both in and outside the houses and by the lake. We brought a bunch of activities, but didn't really use any of them as there were so many options at the house(s). Our only logistical challenge was the single bathroom that served 9 people located in the main house, as the 2 rooms with 4 singles each, plus the Queen room fed into it. We solved by having the majority of kids use their parents bathrooms in the larger rooms, but it would have been nice if there was one more bathroom.

                                                                All in all, I would highly recommend this rental house. This is not our first time renting a vacation home, so we had high expectations going in, all of which were met. Our compliments and thanks to the owners!

                                                                Excellent!

                                                                This place is awesome! Seriously. A few buddies and I took a little getaway over the weekend, and everyone loved it. Plenty of room, nice and clean, lots to do (fishing, pool table, patio, grill...). It won't be a weekend anyone of us will soon forget. I'd recommend this spot to anyone.

                                                                We had a wonderful time at the Farr Side. The two houses were perfect for our large multi-family group. They matched the description and were very clean. We all felt like we had plenty of room to care for our families while playing and catching up with friends we rarely get to see. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking to enjoy some time away with family and/or friends.

                                                                The kids and adults really enjoyed playing pool, ping-pong and even horse-shoes! It was really nice that the kids could go into the second house to watch movies while it rained.
