About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This lakefront cottage is designer owned and a reflection of their trips to Costa Rica, Hawaii and Florida and decorated in fresh and peaceful colors and furnishings. It is on the water and has a wonderful shaded porch with a view of the lake. It is a completely restored 1950s cottage with unbelievable charm. The location is wonderful for families with so many things within one block - walking distance to grocery store, coffee shop, Dairy Queen and many other eating choices. The wonderful open floor plan allows the guests to be connected. The large living area, dining area and kitchen are all open to each other with a very large farmhouse table and bar stools at the counter to seat the entire group. Each bedroom has very plush pillow top mattresses and 400 thread count sheets. The master has a king size bed, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and the bunk room has a full size bed and two twins. In addition the sofa sleeper contains a full size pull out bed. The master bedroom and bunk room both have flat screen t.v.s with cable. The living room has a 50" flat screen with plenty of seating for everyone to relax after a day of swimming or fishing. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, high quality cookware and assessories and makes cooking a pleasure! The bunk room and second bedroom have a custom made barn door that slides on a track for privacy. This house is on a quiet cove and a great place for the kids to swim. The house comes with pool rafts, a kayake, a paddle boat and bicycles. For those who have a boat or jet ski, the dock is padded and equipped with hooks to tie up. For those who don't have a boat or jet ski, a boat rental business is 50 yards away and they will deliver a boat to you for you to enjoy. Fishing off the dock is a favorite pastime of the owners as well as watching the ducks. We hope that you enjoy your stay at Turtle Rock Lake House so much that you will come back and visit again!

About The Owner

Interior Decorator who loves to travel with her three sons to the water - salt or fresh water.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Kingsland

This vacation home is a perfect fit for our family with only a one hour drive to get there. We love the location because of the quiet tucked away neighborhood but yet a quick walk to grocery or restaurants. We have vacationed in Kingsland for over 8 years and are blessed to have found and renovated this home.

What makes this house unique

This property is so peaceful inside and out. We love to fish, swim, boat and just connect as a family.

We had a nice family time!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay but the age of the house & the structure was some what of a problem. The door faces are extremely low & my son is 6ft 6 inches. He hit his head several times! One time was a real concern!

Well decorated, spacious, charming and a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Spent fourth of July with friends and family at Tuttle Rock! We had an awesome time. Charming house! We had a mix of teens and preteens.

Plenty of space to spread out. Kitchen table was awesome! Home has everything you need. Comfy beds!! Water toys were a big hit. Jet skis were a blast. Literally down the street from HEB. Only reason for the 4 rating would be the scrapes on the walls. The porch furniture and dock were pretty bad with spider webb's. I would suggest a pressure wash and using a leaf blower once a week outside. We had to rinse out the kayaks and paddle boat before letting the kids in. The good definitely out weighs the bad! We would absolutely stay again! Thanks for sharing your home!

Turtle Rock is Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Turtle Rock Lake House was just amazing! Having never been to this part of Texas we weren't sure what to expect, but from the minute we arrived we were in love! The water view is gorgeous the minute you walk in the door and so close, no walking down a huge lawn to get to the water! We have rented through VRBO for years and this was our absolute favorite rental! Booking with Tricia was seamless and checkout was the easiest of any rental!! The house felt like home, not a rental, with space for everyone! We could have easily had another family come with us. The location is perfect, central to all our daily trips exploring all that this area has to offer! Our kids loved playing with all the water toys provided, as a family of 4 we were able to take the paddle boat and 2 kayak's down to the open water for fishing and the kids loved jumping off the trestle! The kids swam every day in the quiet cove as there little boat traffic and my husband was in heaven fishing every day. My son loved the vintage bikes provided and he rode around the quiet neighborhood every afternoon. For early risers, you will have a beautiful sunrise over the lake! I highly recommend brunch at Grand Central Cafe, coffee at Kingsland Coffee shop, sunset dinner at On The Rocks in Marble Falls (a short 25 min drive), lunch at the Hoover Valley Cafe with a wine tasting at Perissos Vinyards across the street. We rented a Paddle board from Splash Boast Rentals which was a huge hit with everyone, my husband even took it down to the open water for fishing! Also not to be missed is a cruise on Texas Vanishing River Cruises which takes you to the hidden waterfalls on Lake Buchanan. For history buff, a visit to Highland Lakes Squadron in Burnet Tx is a must! Turtle Rock is our new favorite place on the lake and we can't wait to return!

Most Perfect Weekend Getaway Rental - EVER.

  • 5 of 5

I hosted a bachelorette/girls getaway weekend here Oct 7-10th. While the weather was perfect (84 and sunny with cool nights), we could not get over the house. We never wanted to leave! It is decorated with such detail and beauty. We had everything we could possibly need for cooking, opening bottles of wine, baking and decorating. We were so pleased with the area and while we didn't catch any fish, it was fun having a pontoon pick us up for the day and it was a blast paddle-boating to the railroad tracks (hauling a flamingo and swan float hehe). Everyone around was so nice and we also went antiqueing only 20 minutes away in Burnet! It was the most memorable experience and I guarantee we will be staying here again in the future! Slept everyone comfortably also! I slept on the pull out couch one night and even THAT was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever been on. Really can't say enough about this place! Worth every single penny and I hope you future renters have a blast! :) Thanks Tricia for a great experience!
