Family Reunion at Canyon Lake
Could not have hoped for a better place to have a family reunion. Lookingglass Place was exceptional and offered more than we could ask for! Terry Tomko was great and wanted to make sure everything was to our pleasing! It was, and so much more!!! The accommodations were excellent and had the added pleasure of the smoker, deer, fish pond, deck, view, sitting and visiting space, and so much more!! Thank you Terry!!!
This property was perfect for our reunion with our 7 children and grandchildren. The views are breathtaking and the wild life is beautiful! Terry had the house well stocked and we needed nothing. I text him with a question about the hot tub ( which by the way is awesome at sunset on the deck) and he responded within minutes! I never wanted to leave the house . I can’t wait to come back someday! Thank you. Terry for a wonderful week!
Family Get Together Success
Three generations of our family under one roof could not have gone better at Lookingglassplace. Ample room inside and out for gathering and for personal space. With small children, it worked very well to be away from the water so that parents enjoyed looking at lovely Canyon Lake from the hot tub at sundown. Jacobs Creek Park is around the corner and with a boat rental, we got plenty of water time. Also, a short jaunt to Devil’s Backbone Tavern when a Dad break is needed. Gracias!
Our family was very pleased with the beautiful, spacious home and outdoor property. Feels like you're miles from anywhere. Thank you very much for sharing your home!!
Great space with tons of room to entertain
Great space with tons of room to entertain. Well stocked with all the essentials.
I stayed here for my friends bachelor party and the property was great for the occasion. It has a lot space both inside and outside. The view from the hot tub (which is on the balcony) is breathtaking. Great location as it pertains to lake access. Terry was very nice to work with and accommodating to me and my guests. Would recommend this property to anyone traveling to grand lake.
