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, within 5 minutes from the Guadalupe River, 20 minutes to the nearest golf course, home with a view, and a gorgeous sunset.

About Katy 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.

Katy Keene purchased this house in 1999

Why Katy 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.

Great Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family met at the Keene Kottage for our Christmas get together. We had a wonderful weekend of family time, good food and beautiful scenery. The Keene's were very gracious to help out with some issues. The deer were great...ate blueberries out of my granddaughter's hand. The home was a very comfortable fit for 4 adults and 2 children. We enjoyed our afternoon visit to San Marcos; however, mainly just enjoyed being together in a beautiful home and lovely setting.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples) had a great time at this lake house. The views were great and the deer that come around every time we sat outside was pretty cool! A very comfortable home with all the basic necessities. The owner is very responsive and helpful.

We loved the view of the lake! The location was perfect. The deer were amazing - had about 8 out in the front yard at once. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this house to everyone.

Thank you!

Stunning View!!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is fabulous! The view of the lake is stunning and the whole area is just peaceful and relaxing. I loved the big living room window as it meant you also had the great view from the inside too! Couldn't believe how tame the deer were. It was amazing to find them in the garden everyday! What a treat. We also went to a local bakery to eat breakfast and it was delicious. We also loved the big square kitchen table - it was perfect for family monopoly games :) a really wonderful weekend had by all!!!

Rest, Relaxation, Revitilize and Antiques

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, comfortable and rental price was great. The owners were easy to work with. The home overlooks Canyon Lake and we had visits from deer in the area. There were plenty of places to go antiquing especially in New Braunsfels. Places to shop were within 8 miles from the house. We had a great time and would recommend this house to you.
