About the property

Burnet, Texas

Nestled in the heart of Texas Hill Country, this 2-bed, 1-bath Lake LBJ vacation rental cabin offers 6 guests a refreshing waterfront retreat in the Kingston area. The cozy cabin is surrounded by rolling hills, pristine lakes, beautiful geological formations, and fascinating historical sites, while still offering all the comforts of home! Head out to the 20-foot x 12-foot deck to BBQ on the grill, fish off of the private dock, or gather around the fire pit to roast s'mores with your loved ones.


Master Bedroom: Queen Bed, Pullout Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed

Come escape to this serene waterfront cabin, ideally located in a quiet cove on Lake LBJ with several large oak trees providing shade from the hot Texas sun all summer long.

Originally built in 1950, this cabin has been fully refurbished with brand new flooring, appliances, cabinetry, and a fully redecorated bath and shower. You'll immediately fall in love with the comfortable, tastefully decorated interior with lots of windows that provide water views and an abundance of natural light.

All the amenities you need in your ultimate home-away-from-home are here, including cable TV for your entertainment, in-unit laundry machines, and a fully equipped kitchen, complete with all the necessary modern appliances including a new stainless steel stove.

The property is pet and kid friendly. Enjoy fun family meals around the outdoor picnic area with enough seating for 6 after preparing some delicious barbeque on the grill. Gather by the fire pit during cool evenings for storytelling and s'mores, and enjoy fishing off the small dock during leisurely afternoons. There's even a horseshoe pit and room for the little ones to run around!

There is also a recently added a 20'x12' deck on the water side of the cabin, a new stone path from the parking area, a new fence for privacy from the neighbors and upgraded patio areas.


You certainly won't have to go far to enjoy outdoor recreation and easy water access!

Bring your own watercraft along and tie it off at the bulkhead mere steps away from the cabin door after launching it at the nearby community boat launch. You can easily lease boats and jet skis from local watercraft merchants if you aren't able to bring your own.

You're also more than welcome to use the bicycles, paddle boat, and canoe provided on the premises.

If you need a break from the water and are seeking land-based activities, be sure to check out the Legends Golf Course, Longhorn Cavern, or a local vineyard for wine tasting tours. Practically everything the area has to offer is just a stone's throw away!

Great place for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was for a Father - Son getaway, and we both really enjoyed our time. We took full advantage of the canoe (provided) to fish the quiet inlet off the river. My son was able to catch enough fish to keep him happy, which made me happy as well. The cabin itself is in a great location, and it was quite comfortable for the two of use all weekend. We also enjoyed making a visit to the Longhorn Cavern - great activity during the heat of the day!

Beautiful, Peaceful & Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This little quaint, charming home was perfect for two couples. Upon arrival the place is uniquely landscaped, towering over the property are beautiful live oaks alive with squirrels, birds singing, hummingbirds fluttering in and out of the vivid colors of flowers, out in the waters fish jumping with a crane or two out on the island looking eagerly for their perfect catch of the day! A lot of extra amenities to keep you busy. Offered are two nostalgic bicycles awaiting for you to recapture memories of your childhood, paddle boat, canoe, for the really daring adventure are paddle boards. Paddle boards seem to be the "HOT" trend for this area. I am 51 years young and had never experienced these cool water boards. Sit, stand, body surf etc. I had my son of (26 yrs) and his GF with us so, he showed my husband (61 yrs) and I how to use these cool gems. I'm a big try anything person, my husband is the stay grounded, comfort zone type. Sum it up we all had a blast on these paddle boards!!! Overall, property was clean, well supplied, great amenities, manager very nice, great service. The only little minor things we will add is flapper in toilet was annoying, it kept hanging and coming off the track almost every time we flushed toilet. (I'm sure Steve has already fixed). The one thing I would like to see available is a smoking ash bucket or receptacles for the smokers. I do not smoke but, my husband does. (outside) My husband used a water bottle to dispose of his butts. Upon us leaving and putting the canoe back I noticed several cigarette butts lying on the ground that were not my husbands brand. I picked them up because I did not want us to be blamed for doing this. You have some people who are respectful of others property and some whom are not. I just feel this would be helpful in maybe minimizing cigarette butts being tossed and left lying about trashing the property.

Cabin "D" very cute!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very clean and comfortable for a long weekend stay. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't the best so we were not able to utilize the outdoor toys. Great location to explore the parks and vineyards. Our dog enjoyed the fenced in property.

Super nice property, but the cabin is old and several things didn't work

  • 3 of 5

We had a very nice time in the water and on the lot, but the house is old and not so clean. We killed a huge cockroach in the middle of the night, on the ceiling. We made sweet rolls on the stove top, since the oven didn't work. We used a knife for our can goods since there is no can opener, SO BRING ONE. Also, once you adjust the toilet, it seemed to work okay. Make sure and find the breaker box outside, since one of the AC window units wasn't working for the first two hours. Also, needed to locate a ladder to be able to get out of the water, onto the dock. Very nice owner who tried to assist via phone, but for the money, we didn't feel it was a quality deal. Again, beautiful lot and nice water. Kids had a blast and we loved the area, just would never stay here, again.

Adorable, quiet cabin surrounded by huge trees

  • 5 of 5

We loved this well-stocked, spacious, beautiful little cabin. There are two sitting areas (couches in the living room and master bedroom). The kitchen had nearly everything you could possibly need (kitchen staples like brown and white sugar, cutting boards, mixing bowls, pans, mugs...even dog bowls!). The dock is sturdy and tidy. The stand-up paddle boards and canoe are easy to access and in good condition. This part of the river is extremely quiet -- it's in a "no wake" area, and traffic on both the road and the river was very low. Best of all, in my opinion, the cabin property is fully fenced, so you can let dogs roam around the large yard without fear of them escaping or getting lost. It was also very conveniently located <10 minutes from an HEB and a few nice restaurants (although we only went to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre house -- i.e., the Grand Central Cafe). Steve was very informative, welcoming, and responsive to emails.

The only negatives (which were very minor, in my mind) were that there were some cobwebs on the patio furniture, the placement of the one bathroom was a little inconvenient (especially at night or in the morning -- you have to go through another bedroom to get to it), and the window AC unit in the first bedroom was a little noisy.

Just as advice for future vacationers, there were a few kitchen staples that I did not see and wished I'd brought or bought at HEB -- honey, avocado or olive oil (they only had canola and Pam), kosher salt, and a pepper grinder. To be clear, I don't see those missing ingredients as a negative of the cabin -- they can't have everything, and they did have a *lot* of other staples. They also did have salt and pepper shakers -- I just prefer my own.

We loved this cabin and would happily come again if it's available next time we're looking to get away. Thank you so much for the accommodation, Steve and Cabin D!
