Reviews

Enjoying this charming waterfront home!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Mar 29, 2014

Our wonderful Canyon Lake escape – Water’s Edge From the moment we arrived at Canyon Lake, we were impressed by the natural beauty of the area. We were delighted by the generous parking, friendly neighbors and the supreme view of the lake. The house sits on an elongated lot that is deep and deliciously lakefront. Water’s Edge provides an ample ground-level covered space for easy entertaining, dining alfresco and of course barbequing! As we climbed the staircase to the wrap-around deck, our eyes were immediately drawn to the stunning, panoramic views of Canyon Lake. The house is a charming escape that offers a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a comfortable leather sofa, an easy chair and wonderful natural light. The kitchen is spacious, equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, fridge with water & ice dispenser, a nice stovetop and oven as well as a double sink. Water’s Edge offers three comfortable bedrooms and two spacious bathrooms. Ample linens are available with plenty of plump pillows and comfortable mattresses. Two of the bedrooms offer easy access to the wrap-around deck. We were delighted by the quality of the local restaurants and quick access to grocery, convenience stores and gas stations. There’s even a great hardware store that sells fishing rods and ice coolers. Water’s Edge owner Patty was really fantastic. She was super-friendly and generous with restaurant suggestions. Pack your bags and prepare for a joyous escape to a truly memorable property deep in the pristine Texas Hill Country!

Relaxing Peaceful Experience

  • 5 of 5

As we were looking for a place to stay, we were pleasantly surprised and found it to be the most cozy and peaceful place we have ever stayed! Before we arrived, we got plenty of communication from the owners, Patty and Craig...We had a lot of questions for them. They replied promptly and answered all of our questions. Once we got there, it was more beautiful than the pictures showed. Everything was clean and meticulously prepared for our stay. It immediately felt like home. The view is amazing... we saw deer, watched the beautifully colored sunset every evening, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Amazing!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family weekend with our pups!! The house was the perfect size for everyone and we loved having lake access just right outside the backyard! The dogs absolutely loved having lake access too! We wished we would have booked a couple of extra days, but, now we know for next time, that we will want to stay longer!! Thank you for a great weekend, Patty and Craig!

Not only was the house itself great, the views were so beautiful. The home owner really made us feel welcomed- very thoughtful and considerate of guests needs. I wish we had the chance to visit many times throughout the year!
