My expectations were exceeded with this beautiful home. My family had an awesome time. Was the perfect way to have all my family under one roof for Christmas. They can't wait to do it again.

Thanks for a Great Vacation !!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week long stay at this lake house. The house and setting was beautiful. The front allowed easy access for my elderly mother. The large shaded back yard sloped to the bulk headed lake with two docks. The kids caught enough fish for a family fish fry. We had a treasure hunt were I left a series of clues and riddles that lead to a hidden treasure chest full of goodies. The kids and I sleep upstairs were we stayed up late telling scary stories. We enjoyed swimming, fishing, swinging, canoeing, playing pool and just relaxing on the porch. We enjoyed feeding Bullwinkle. We were eating breakfast one morning and looked up to see Bullwinkle watching us through the front porch window. We hand feed and petted him every morning. We almost didn’t want to leave the house as we ventured out to enjoy golfing, rafting the Guadalupe, Schlitterbahn, Texas Ski Ranch, shopping and dining in Gruene. My niece left her IPod at the lake house and Vanessa was kind enough to send it to us. It was a pleasure dealing with Vanessa and we look forward to staying at her place again. Thanks Vanessa.

Incredible scenery and space

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. House spaciously accomodated 5 couples, my elderly grandmother, plus a few children. It is hard to decide the star of the show from the gorgeous lawn, huge river frontage, the family oriented home, or a friendly deer named Bullwinkle (he likes berries). You will not be disappointed when staying here. Enjoy the water, sit out in the swing over the water, or enjoy a rock on the porch.
