Overview

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 Canyon Lake

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 experience!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. House was super comfortable and was exactly what we expected. Excellent host too.

The views are amazing. The deer are friendly so be prepared to bring deer food and they will eat off your hand.

Will definitely return to this property.

Thanks Kay!

Alejandra.

Great Cottage for 5 with beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is clean and quite comfortable. All of the beds were very comfortable and we had plenty of room for 5 people. The kitchen was well-equipped for cooking and the fridge had plenty of room for pre-Thanksgiving. The pictures do not do the view justice. It's very quiet and beautiful up there as well. Remember to bring your deer corn because Bambi will definitely come visit! Overall a great stay.

Great location, beautiful setting, good value

  • 5 of 5

We had a weekend group of seven at Kay’s to attend a nearby weekend. Kay’s communication was clear and prompt from start to finish. House is nicely furnished and well maintained. Lake view was enhanced by regatta while we were there. Location is convenient to both Austin and San Antonio airports. Home is as described in listing and is a good value.

Exactly what we were hoping for.

  • 5 of 5

We cannot wait to get back to your little piece of heaven. We were looking for a view, wildlife, and peace. We got that and so much more. Already trying to figure out another date to head back to your cottage. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Very nice and great view. Good location. Enjoyed hiking the trail by the house with our dog! Nice outside area in front of house. It was just a little too cold to use this weekend.
