Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: My late husband and I fell in love with the area while visiting friends who owned weekend houses there and, in 1980, we had the shell of the house built. With the help of wonderful friends, we worked weekends building out the interior. The project took about a year to complete and I have so many great memories of those times. The chalet became our escape from the hectic weekly pace in Houston. We put heart and soul into building out the chalet! When my husband passed away in 1993, the only way I could rationalize keeping the property was to rent it out to vacationers. I've had the good fortune of meeting so many wonderful people who have rented from me since that time and look forward to being blessed with many more!

Why the Owner Chose Livingston, TX, USA:
Why this property? BECAUSE it provides THE most peaceful and relaxing get-away anyone would want! BECAUSE the grounds and property are very well maintained and the house is kept sparkling clean! The house has had new Laminate flooring installed, was freshly painted, and furniture updated in Living room and Dining areas in 2014. BECAUSE we provide everything but your clothes, your food and libations! No need to pack up a bunch of essentials, linens and towels because they will be waiting right there for your arrival! BECAUSE we are so thankful for our renters and want to ensure their stay is the most wonderful experience possible! BECAUSE our prices are very reasonable for everything we provide! SO, pack your suitcase, bring your family, even the four-legged members and prepare to ENJOY!

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Serenity Now!!!! ;) feel the stress of every day life and all your cares drift away immediately just driving down the winding road to the property. Taking in God's incredible creation of nature all around is icing on the cake while cooking in the delightful little kitchen with its great view of the lake, or fishing, lounging around, reading, playing games, sitting in the swing, observing nature, taking a stroll, napping...just completely relaxing in the quiet beauty of the atmosphere of Taylor Lake! When I arrive, I never want to leave!
