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 queen size beds with comfortable linens where you will rest comfortably after a fun-packed day on the lake.

You will find comfy blow-up mattresses for children sleeping with plenty of blankets and floor space in the master bedroom. We have provided a portable crib for the baby. Plus the sofa contains a queen-size bed.

The bathrooms are spacious and you have the option of tub or shower.

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 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, McAlister's Deli, Cotton Patch, Jeff's Burgers and The Turtle Restaurant and many more. Corina's has fine Mexican food and is located on Hwy 279 in the lake area.

The Hideout Golf Course is located at Lake Brownwood in the Feather Bay area just a few miles from the house. It is a well manicured 18 hole course, sure to suit your fancy! And The Hideout Restaurant is located there. 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 bowling alley. Fancy's Day Spa would be happy to book a spa appointment for you.

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 & 15 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 Brown County

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!

                                                          Lovely lake house

                                                          Melissa O.

                                                          We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lake front home in Brownwood. The home was very clean, the beds were comfortable, the linens were of high quality and the location was perfect for us. Thank you for a lovely stay.

                                                          We would love to come back again!

                                                          Dawn E.

                                                          What a wonderful and relaxing stay!

                                                          The most relaxing and comfortable home. Owner is marvelousl!

                                                          We spent a week at this house and couldn't ask for a better place and owner. There is nothing bad or negative. You have a dock that is so fun to be on with the diving board and lots of fishing. The house is fully furnished and if you have an issue the owner is on top of it. We always stay at her house not only for a vacation but to build all those precious memories with family. Plus, we travel and always use VRBO and I can tell you that we have never dealt with anyone any nicer than this owner. ❤️❤️❤️

                                                          Beautiful home with everything you need and more.

                                                          Carol B.

                                                          We had such a great time and your house was the best we have stayed in at Brownwood.

                                                          The grandkids really enjoyed boating and fishing and the dock was so close to the house we could see them from the back porch. Sooooo much fun! We will be back next year!

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thanks so much. It was a pleasure having you! See you next summer.

                                                          Great property to rent. Even better than the pictures can show.

                                                          Michael H.

                                                          Had a great time at this lake house. Fishing from the dock was great. The house was nice and clean when we got there, had extra bedding and some air up mattresses.

                                                          Dock has tons of spiders at night, but we left them alone and they didn't bother us and so it didn't take away from the experience either.

                                                          Gorgeous Home and Lake
