About Jon Nickowski | Front Desk Vacation Rentals | Owner

100% LOCALLY MANAGED. BOOK WITH LOCAL EXPERTS. Front Desk Vacation Rentals personally oversees all of our Lake LBJ Rental Homes housekeeping and maintenance, ensuring you and your guests a well equipped and clean rental house during your visit to The Highland Lakes. Planning your next family vacation on Lake LBJ'S 21 mile stretch of shoreline will guarantee your family countless hours of wet and wild fun while wake boarding, tubing, boating, swimming and fishing. This property is guaranteed & managed by Front Desk Vacation Rentals, a local, family owned and operated company since 2005. All our homes, including Lookout Mountain are on prime open waterfront, very clean and well-maintained, and exactly as pictured.

Why Jon Nickowski | Front Desk Vacation Rentals | Owner chose Kingsland

We purchased this house as a vacation property but through the years, our friends, children and grandchildren have transformed it into our personal picture frame of memories. If you love to relax, play on the water or share time with people you love… then we hope you will experience the magic of making memories at Shady Grove just as we have.

What makes this house unique

On our first trip to Shady Grove we sat on one of the beautiful granite out croppings and watched the setting sun paint the clouds with soothing reds, yellows and orange which reflected off of the calm, blue water below. Immediately we knew this was our sanctuary. Our lives are incredibly hectic, but walking across the lush green carpet of grass down to the water’s edge and experiencing that sunset was an awaking of the inner peace we had not felt in years. With 225’ of waterfront, you can swim off the dock; while away the hours catching bass and catfish; feed the many species of ducks, birds and squirrels; kayak or paddleboat in the protected cove; or just chill around the huge outdoor kitchen and three decks by the water. We are the first home inside the cove so we have the best of both worlds… you are protected by the cove for swimming and water play buy have the view of the open water and one of the best ski areas on the lake.

Make it a great life,

John & Jana

Terrific location to escape the day to day crazies! Enjoyed our kids and grandkids for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. This is a terrific place to relax and enjoy family.

Perfect Getaway - This place has it all

  • 5 of 5

Shady Grove was exactly what my group and I needed for our stay: awesome views, great patio for entertaining and watching college football, and plenty of room for outdoor activities like volleyball.

We had 15 guys stay here and had more than enough room. In fact, I think everyone had their own bed/couch! Not only that, but Jon, the one managing the property, was extremely responsive and helpful for any question I had before and during the stay. Accessing the property and check in/checkout was painless.

I would highly recommend Shady Grove or any property that is managed by Front Desk Vacation Rentals based on this experience. Anyone that wants to get away and enjoy the river will have a great time.

There are many beautiful homes on Lake LBJ but none that offer the total package Shady Grove does. A wonderful, tree shaded yard, completely fenced, leads down to a fab waterfront area with protected swimming for kids and adults, a great covered boat dock/sitting area, and immediate access to the whole lake. There's a boat lift and two jet ski ramps plus a second boat dock in the event your boat won't fit the lift. There's a huge patio/outdoor cooking party area at the house, volley ball, table tennis, and anything else you can think of and they even provide toys: kayaks, noodles, etc. The house is comfortable, well stocked with cooking pots, pans, coffee pots, double oven, etcetcetc. Our grandkids fight over the bunks in the bunkroom and there are comfortable beds in each bedroom. The kitchen, dining area, living room, and two of the bedrooms overlook the lake and two washer/dryer combinations mean you don't have to drag dirty laundry home. Also, and very important, there's ample parking for your car and boat trailer plus a convenient boat launch just across the little bay the house sits on. The Kingsland HEB is minutes away and so is Marble Falls. All in all, there's no place we'd rather stay. As we were leaving, the kids were already asking if we could come back next year.
