About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This Lake House is one of a kind. It is the get away from it all place to go! Upon arrival guest are impressed with the immaculate interior of the home. This two story home has space for everyone. There are two rooms on the main floor, Bedroom #1 has a king bed as well as Bedroom #2. Please note that there are two steps to walk up to access these bedrooms and the bathroom. The third bedroom upstairs has lots of room and boasts the most beds, it includes one king bed, two twin beds, and a cozy day bed with a trundle when needed. The balcony is a great escape place to take in the lake view from above it all.

The Kitchen is fully stocked with cooking and serving utensils. Included is two coffee makers, toaster, blender, electric griddle and a crock pot. The stove and oven are electric, and there is a gas grill on the patio.

The living area was recently updated with new leather furniture and a 48' Flat Screen Television with DirectTV. There is a second television upstairs.

This lake home was custom built by our dear friends Bill & Betty who loved an open home and enjoying the company of family. It is unique with its 20' ceilings of white washed pine in the living area and bedrooms. Please note that there is only partial privacy in the bedrooms as the walls are at 3/4 height. This has not been a complaint by guest as many have returned multiple times.

The lake side yard is fenced and has a nice lawn for games and just stretching out. It has been a favored place for our returning "Yoga Retreat Group". The fence also aids in keeping young ones out of the water when necessary. The patio area is covered and has plenty of comfortable chairs and tables for outdoor eating and lounging.

The boat dock has two boat slips with lifts. The boat ramp is just about a mile away in the deCordova Park. There is parking space for boat trailers in an adjacent lot by the lake house.

Also included are three kayaks to paddle around the lake with.

If guest need a break from the lake, there is plenty of entertainment around town. There is a newly renovated bowing ally and a cinema. On the historical Granbury Square there is always a play to be seen at "The Opera House", be careful though, it's said to be haunted by the ghost of John Wilkes Booth! There is also tons of unique shops all around the square as well as restaurants. If your in the mood for wildlife adventure, "Fossill Rim" is just a short drive away in Glen Rose, and while your there, check out "Dinosaur Valley State Park".

But be sure to return back to the lake house because the sunsets and star gazing away from city lights is the best.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lot of time on the great boat deck and in the lake. We also enjoyed the kayaks. Kitchen had every utensil and small appliance imaginable and plenty of dishes for our party of 8. We were three couples, so the layout is a little strange for that (loft upstairs, one of the bedrooms downstairs is not completely walled in, barn doors for both bedrooms downstairs)...but it wasn't a problem for us. Only one shower and it's downstairs (jack and jill bath that the two king rooms share). The upstairs bathroom is just a tub.

The connection from the propane to the grill wasn't working when we arrived. We notified Carol and it was fixed the next day!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Bill & Betty's Place was perfect for our trip. We travel every summer with another family. This lake house was perfect for our group. The lot was spacious and rather private. We had two parent couples in the downstairs rooms that both have king beds and share a Jack and Jill bathroom. The kids had the upstairs area which had plenty of beds and even their own balcony. There were 8 of us total, but it easily could have slept 10. We spent our days lounging on the back patio and on the dock, taking in the views of the beautiful lake, kayaking, and grilling. The kitchen was very well laid out for gathering. And the views! We did not want to leave. Such beauty and relaxation. We will be back!

Cute & fun place!

  • 5 of 5

With this being our first time in Granbury & our first time renting someone else's house, we really didn't know what to expect. Let me just say - WOW! This was the cutest place! The pictures, while great, don't really do it justice. I was impressed with how immaculately clean & well-stocked it was. The patio overlooking the lake was so peaceful & serene. We had coffee in the morning & cocktails in the evenings there. The dock was way larger than I expected, so each member of my 8-person group was able to fish at the same time. There are patio chairs & lounge chairs on the dock as well. We kayaked, fished, swam, enjoyed the scenery, cooked & grilled out, met the neighbors & just generally had an excellent time. Carol, the property manager, was extremely professional & so easy to work with. We didn't need anything while we were there, but I can imagine she would have taken care of us immediately. We also ventured into town & enjoyed the city beach one afternoon. However, we were having so much fun at the house, we went back home! The beds were comfortable, there was more than enough space for us to lounge around without being crowded and it was nice & quiet. There wasn't a lot of lake traffic either. It was just an all around great experience & we look forward to coming back to Bill & Betty's Place!

Lovely, quaint lake house

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this lake house was perfect. From its open floor plan to its accessibility to the lake, we were happy with everything about it. My children loved the kayaks that were available and my husband had a wonderful time grilling outside with the wonderful lake views. Booking with Carol was a snap, and we appreciate her flexibility when we had to change our dates at the last minute. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying there. We mainly hung out prepared meals in the large well equipped kitchen. The home is nice and open with very comfortable beds. We did some fishing off the dock catching a few fish. Liked getting the kayaks out and doing some swimming. At the dock the bottom is sandy not muddy like some Texas lakes. Very nice experience we will be coming back.
