About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Start your day with a cup of coffee on the patio overlooking the lake while the sun comes up. When other guests awaken, you can cook a nice breakfast in the fully furnished kitchen.

Grab a beach towel and head for the water. Jump in for a swim or take a boat ride. Go skiing, wake boarding or wake surfing. Then dry off on the sun deck above. Enjoy every minute because soon the day will be done.

But then its time to relax on the patio or inside the exquisitely furnished house with friends & family. You might want to pick up a DVD or tune into the sports channel. Pretty soon you'll be yawning, sleepy head! All three bedrooms have new queen size beds where you will rest comfortably after a fun-packed day on the lake.

The bathrooms are spacious and you have the option of tub or shower. You will find comfy blow-up mattresses for extra sleeping space, with plenty of bedding. We have provided a portable crib for the baby. There is plenty of floor space in the Master Bedroom. It is even possible to find space in the two smaller bedrooms for extra guests. The sofa does not contain a bed but it is large and comfortable enough to sleep on.

The back yard is great for sprinkler fun or toddler's swimming pool, or for just kicking a ball around or playing catch. Plenty of off-street parking in front.

The kitchen has a stand alone ice maker which will keep you well supplied with ice for the duration of your vacation. And of course, a full refrigerator, microwave & dishwasher.

Outside cooking can be done on the Holland Gas Grill provided. Also available (upon request) is a large smoker for cooking brisket, chicken, ribs, etc. to perfection.

Please use your beach towels and keep our bathroom towels at the house. If you've forgotten a required life jacket, we will have a few on hand that you can borrow. But please remember to bring your own so you can be sure you have a proper fit and your safety is not at risk.

There are many fine restaurants in Brownwood (about 7 miles). One of our favorites is Gomez Mexican Restaurant. But you won't be disappointed by Humphrey Pete's Steak House, Section Hand Steak House, Lemons' Bar-B-Q, Schlotsky's, China King, Chili's, Prima Pasta, CiCi's Pizza, The Turtle Restaurant and many more.

Feather Bay Golf Course is located at Lake Brownwood just a few miles from the house. It is a well manicured 18 hole course, sure to suit your fancy! Several times a year the historic Lyric Theater has a play. Often these are attractive for children. Brownwood has a movie theater as well as a large swim complex and a skating rink and bowling alley.

If you are a fisherman, you will find this lake is excellent for fishing. You might want to enter the Bass Fishing Tournament they have each year.

Plenty of off-street parking. No RVs please.

About Vivian Auldridge

I am a widow, mother to 5 children & 13 grandchildren. My husband and I opened a lumber retail business in Goldthwaite, TX in 1976. He passed away in 2003 and I continued the business until 2013 when I sold it to Higginbotham Brothers. I am now retired. My family loves boating and swimming; just being at this place on the lake. My hope is that you will have the same great experiences here that we have had. Please come and have a great time!

Vivian Auldridge purchased this house in 2000

Why Vivian Auldridge chose Hill Country

My husband and I built this house in 2000. At that time we still had two children in college. Brownwood Lake is a beautiful, large and deep lake just 45 minutes from our home.

What makes this house unique

A favorite thing for the adults is to sit on the patio in the mornings and gaze out over the lake with coffee. Later we walk down to the dock and the kids swim & jump off the dive before we get out in the boat and tube, ski, or wake surf. Nothing could be better than this!

Fun at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and up to the standards we sought. It's not some dump that would ruin a vacation. The owner was easy to work with and we would recommend her and the house.

Great Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online don't do this gorgeous home justice. It is very well kept and Vivian keeps every necessity stocked. Our kids enjoyed the diving board on the dock so much - it was one of the highlights of the weekend. There was more than enough room for our entire crew and I would definitely recommend it. We would definitely stay here again.

PERFECT Wedding location

  • 5 of 5

This was the very BEST and PERFECT backyard wedding... We transformed the already lush back yard into our perfect wedding venue.. House was most accommodating, clean and comfortable. Vivian the owner was exceptional to work with and allowing us the flexibility we needed to make our wedding weekend everything we wanted and more. Our now very large family of 5 kids, 14 grand kids had an amazing time. We just could not have asked for anything better. THANKS so much.. We are local but plan on renting again.
