What a great place to stay. So peaceful and quite. Very comfortable.
Very comfortable - everything we needed
House is not fancy but very clean and comfortable. Exactly what we needed. Split level, so not good for handicapped. Large trees with lots of shade right on the water. Would definitely stay here again. Owner was very accommodating. We had a large group so we also rented the house next door. Worked well having both.
Five stars all the way!!
Had a wonderful family weekend on the lake. It's close to grocery stores, restaurants, and local attractions but located on a quiet point on the water. The house is generously appointed with everything a large group needs. Plenty of comfortable beds, new linens, plates, small appliances, and outdoor furniture.
Nice grilling area and beautiful shaded deck. New owner Kim is gracious and efficient--a real joy to work with. We had so much fun that we hope to make this a yearly outing!
Nice, peaceful home on the Lake!
My family enjoyed our Thanksgiving wkend stay at this house on Lake LBJ. It rained most of the wkend, but we still enjoyed the stay. Too cold and wet to fish or boat, but we enjoyed going into Marble Falls and seeing the Holiday Light display beside Lake Marble Falls, very pretty!! Stopped in the Bluebonnet Cafe for some of their famous pies. The house was roomy, Master bed was very comfortable, and the view of the cove from the bedroom was so beautiful and peaceful, looked just like a painting of a fall Lake scene! Must have been very serene, our 3yr old grandson took a 2 hour nap in that room both days, and he never does that! Only two negatives, Direct TV is unwatchable if it is raining, basically no picture, and other people on street were letting two big dogs run loose. They appeared to be aggressive, and we had to keep an eye out if we had our MinPin out (on a leash) or if our grandson was out in the yard. Not sure if these were vacationers or neighbors. Thanks Bill, we loved the cove and hope to come back in the summer!
Enjoyed our stay
We had a large family gathering and used two houses. We found the accommodations to be great! The houses had everything we needed. Really enjoyed the back deck. Our only issue was the swimming area. We didn't feel it was good at all. The kids did enjoy the paddle boat and the fishing, but didn't feel comfortable swimming.
Wonderful 50th Anniversary celebration & reunion
We rented both houses from Bill to accommodate 17 people and a dog. We had a maximum of 24 people there one day. I was the only one who had seen the property before then but nobody was disappointed. The house are appointed with everything you could imagine needing. It was like Bill's family was living there just before us. We rented boats that were delivered and picked up at our dock. We played golf in Kingland. The kids played croquet on the lawn and watched movies. We had bonfires in a fire pit we brought. It was an experience that our whole family will remember for years.
During spring from the mid-March through most of June the Highland Lakes area turns into a virtual paradise with the fields of wildflowers. First, the Bluebonnets bloom, and they are quickly joined by the red Indian Paintbrush flowers for beautiful fields of red and blue. As these flowers start to fade the fields are taken over by other red, yellow and white flowers. You have to see them to really appreciate how beautiful these fields of flowers are.
