Amazing, beautiful house with spacious rooms and and a huge kitchen for entertaining. We had such a great time at LookingGlass. The hot tub was a huge bonus. The backyard was great for the kids to run around, play horse shoes, relax on the hammock and of course roast s'mores on the campfire. The porch has breathtaking sunsets and views of Canyon Lake. We will definitely be renting again.
Great winter vacation house!
My friends and I stayed here during our winter vacation. It was incredibly spacious and had magnificent views of the lake. The backyard patio was beautiful and the upstairs deck hot tub was fantastic! Besides the nearby lake, the house is located between both Austin and San Antonio, so there was plenty to do. Can't wait to come back!
