Large Lot With Gorgeous 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath House (Comfortably Sleeps 8)
If you're looking for a private weekend escape or a vacation destination for your entire family, this new 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home on Inks Lake is a perfect getaway. Inks Lake, nestled in between Burnet and Llano in the beautiful Texas hill country, is drought resistant (constant level) and also the home of the popular Inks Lake State Park and Camp Longhorn.
This uniquely designed two story home features lots of windows and scenic lake views from every room. The kitchen and dining area offers plenty of space for meal preparation on granite and stainless steel counter tops, stainless stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven, coffee maker and utensils. If cooking outside is your preference, a gas grill and large, wood fired BBQ pit are both available for perfecting your favorite outdoor recipes. The utility room beside the kitchen includes a washer and dryer for refreshing your weekend wardrobe or extended stays. A comfortable living room with 55" smart tv ,bedroom with a king size bed, 40' flat panel TV/DVD and 1.5 bathrooms complete the downstairs floorplan. A spiral staircase leads upstairs to a dramatic 1930's style steel catwalk that connects two bedrooms and a large shared bath. Both upstairs bedrooms have a double bed; one of the upstairs bedrooms also features a cozy bunk bed.
A large covered deck spans the front of the house, offers a cool breeze and plenty of additional lakeside seating. The water's edge is only a short walk away across a large St. Augustine grass yard. Wide concrete steps provide easy access to the water and boat dock on a private, no-wake cove which is ideal for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking or floating peacefully on inner tubes with friends. The dock features plenty of space for sun bathing during the day or star gazing at night. Our boat normally occupies the boat lift from April-September but you are welcome to bring a small/medium boat and tie it to the mooring buoy or dock. Boat and jetski rentals are available close by. Please note there is no marina located on inks Lake so you will need to bring your own gas. Our property has a steep driveway, which is best to back down for easiest departure. Small/medium boat trailers can be left here or in the empty lot at the end of the boat launch located west of our home in the same cove. Navigating boat trailers can be difficult in our narrow rural neighborhood roads.

So many wonderful memories have been made with our extended family at Inks Lake. We bought the lots in Inks Lake Village in 2000. We designed and started construction of the house in 2005 and the boat dock in 2008.
Nancy purchased this House in 2000
Why Nancy chose Buchanan Dam
Inks Lake Village is a wonderful, small gated community located on this constant level lake. Many of the Texas lakes are so low during our Texas droughts, but not Inks. Many visitors over the years have commented of the relaxed feeling our place holds. Come sit in the back porch rocking chairs, under the ceiling fans and cool down with a large glass of iced tea.
What makes this House unique
Daybreak and sunset are our favorite times of the day. The lake is normally calm and and exudes serenity. The dock usually has a southern breeze. The waterfront has several steps down to the granite-lined beach area. Inks is a deep lake to enjoy wake boarding, tubing, wake surfing, or water skiing almost any time of the day! Secure, gated community. Special construction details include the many rock-filled pillars designed from inspiration of the Llano bridge and the steel catwalk between the upstairs bedrooms. Our place is light and bright with 44 windows to view the lake from each room. Please be considerate of our year round neighbors!

Beautiful House - Fantastic Owners
We recently celebrated a birthday and guests stayed over (3) houses. Nancy's house was truly beautiful! Great view of the lake, warm inviting space, and a surprise little hidden nook. She was also super available to answer any questions and help in any way that she could. Would highly recommend staying here!
Wonderful stay with a beautiful view!
This place was wonderful- clean, plenty of room for all 5 of us who stayed at the house including a newborn. The kitchen is a good size as is the living room/ dining room, and there is a wonderful view of the lake from teh house. Nancy was easy to communicate with and answered all of my questions quickly and efficiently. The house is remote enough to feel like you get away, but close enough to vineyards and hiking locations that you can get places. I would highly recommend this spot!
Very nice beautiful home!
Would definitely stay again. Everyone needs to know going in that there is no cable and no internet but otherwise the house has everything you could need with gorgeous views and right on the lake.
We are so glad you all had a great time! Thank you for the feedback about your interest in internet service. We just had satellite internet installed as well as a large 55" 4K HD tv with Netflix, amazon movies, pandora etc in the living area.
We'd love to host you for your next getaway!
An absolute beauty! The location was incredible as well athe house, amenities, & special touches!
A well- furnished lake house with special touches that made our stay awesome. Right on Inks Lake! Thank you for a memorable stay!
Texas Hill Country waterfront lake house with 3 bedrooms 2 1/2 bathrooms that comfortably sleeps 8 people. Rustic and relaxing decor, large covered deck, spacious yard, fishing/swimming dock with room for your boat and jet ski. Located in Inks lake Village, a small rural gated community, on a no wake cove which opens to the main lake. Neighborhood boat launch available. The fishing is great but our children have enjoyed most the water sports. Kayak across the lake at sunrise. Canoe with a friend for bird watching. On really hot days, you'll find us 'floating' on rafts right off our beach. So much more to do in the surrounding area! Spend a day hiking at Enchanted Rock State Park, tour Fall Creeks, Torr Na Lochs, and Perissos vineyards and winery, antique shop in historic Fredricksburg, visit President Johnson's boyhood home in Johnson City, grab some BBQ at world famous Cooper's in Llano, explore the caves at Longhorn Cavern State Park, or take a slow relaxing cruise on the Vanishing Texas River Cruise on Lake Buchanan. At the end of the day, fire up the large BBQ pit or gas grill to cook your own special recipes.
