About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath with comfortable beds, that sleeps 7 to 8 people.

The Keene Kottage was built in the early 60's by my husband's grandparents. We have opened our home for you to enjoy the beauty of the view of Canyon Lake. We have a 3 bedroom approximately 1,000 sf home with 1 king size bed, 1 queen size bed, 1 full size bed, & 1 twin bed. Our home is very cozy and comfortable, it is by far not the mansion on the hill, however it is on a hill that overlooks the lake and the view is absolutely breath taking. We can sleep 7 adults comfortably in beds. Canyon Lake has a rock bottom and the colors of the water are emerald green & blue. Canyon Lake is gorgeous, reminds me of ocean water, and if you have not seen it, you should definitely put it on your bucket list. Boat Ramp with public access and with a floating dock is at the bottom of the hill, less than 1 mile from our driveway. We are 20 minutes from New Braunfels, 15 minutes from Gruene, 30 minutes from The Outlet Malls in San Marcos, 45 minutes from downtown San Antonio, 1 hour south of Austin, and an 1 1/2 hour scenic drive to Fredricksburg. We would love to have you as our guest. Ray, Kay, & Seth Keene

Keywords: Lake House overlooking Canyon Lake, less than 1 mile to nearest boat ramp, within 5 minutes from the Guadalupe River, 10 minutes to the nearest golf course, home with a lake view, and a gorgeous sunset that sets over Canyon Lake, Tx.

About Kay Keene

We love to ski, fish, shop, float the river, go to amusement parks, concerts, live theater, festivals, eat out, watch the wildlife, & watch the sunsets. We are able to do all of these things either at our home or within a short drive from our home.

Kay Keene purchased this house in 1999

Why Kay Keene chose Hill Country

To keep the home in the Keene family, enjoy the spectacular view and someday retire there.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing, reading a good book overlooking the lake, feeding the deer that come up to you and eat out of your hand.

Wonderful space for two young families to vacation. Saw deer every day, beautiful lake views without the fear of the kids being to close.

Small place but great for 8!

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet place and street. Watched fireflies and deer in the yard. Youngsters could throw a baseball in the street and not worry about cars. A few neighbors but friendly. We always cooked in and the table held us all, no problem. Just what was needed for friends separated by college to come together and have a fun weekend.

Charming and quiet neighborhood .

  • 5 of 5

Great view of Canyon Lake. Home was nice and up to date inside. You can tell property owner maintain property very well. Only things that need work is water pressure (but can be because of location) and slow wifi (internet). I think there is something was wrong with service because I ran internet test and they were both extremely slow outcome. None of my devices worked properly. ( huge storm passed through two days before, maybe something happened)

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Unfortunately the water pressure is not great, but the Water Supply Corporation may have been working on the system. I admit the internet has it's problems. Sometimes it is not bad and other times it's not great. The storm might have affected the WiFi Service. We have tried a couple different Internet companies and they all are about the same. Other than that I hope you had a good time.

Couldn't Have Asked For More!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to visit. The view is wonderful, the house is incredibly clean and holds 8 people just fine! The deer come right up to you in the yard and you can feed them by hand with the deer food the owners leave. The Grill they leave is a wonderful plus as it means you can enjoy a nice meal in the evening and enjoy the surroundings outside. There is also a walking trail that takes about 10 minutes to hike down straight to the water. The owners have great communication and are wonderful to book with. I would encourage everyone who comes across this listing to book it as soon as possible.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the awesome review. We always love going ourselves, relaxing, looking at at the lake, watching the sunset, feeding and watching the deer. We don't always have deer food for our guest, but occasionally there will be some left over from when we do get to go or other guest may leave some. You can buy deer corn from the local ACE Hardware store or even the grocery stores will have deer corn sometimes. The deer also love corn tortillas, bread, crackers, & some fruit. Be careful with them though, because they are a wild animal and sometimes get spooked. The ones that come around our home seem to be pretty gentle though. If you see one with a notch on her ear, my niece named her Notch, & she knows her name.

60th Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We met our adult children to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday and to go on a guided fly fishing trip. The location was perfect and the Keanes were excellent hosts. We enjoyed some great card games at the kitchen table and the weekend was a huge success.
