Scenic Terrace Retreat - Canyon Lake

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,470 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

4 Beds 2 Baths

The house is very private and is great if you want to get away from it all but close to many other water activities. The house is walking distance to horse trails. The home was recently renovated with kitchen and living area. The yard is fenced in and is large for boat parking and additional vehicles.

We are about 1 mile from Canyon Park, which is a wonderful lakeside park with a marina where you can take a picnic and enjoy a family outing. There is a public boat ramp about 1 mile away (check lake levels for ramp availability). Also, we are about 12 minutes with great access to Guadalupe tubing down the river.

Don't forget about hunting in the Fall and Winter. Our home would provide a great place to stay while hunting in the hill country!

There is a grocery store, pizza parlor, Italian Garden (great Italian food), and Sweeties Bakery (one of our favorite spots for a kolache or breakfast tacos) close by. And if you find yourself missing the city life, drive about 30 minutes to historic New Braunfels or about 20 minutes to Gruene Hall, or take a drive into San Antonio for the day.

Our property has 2 queen size beds and 1 full size bed to accomadate you. Please call or email me for more details!!

Girls Trip 2017

  • 5 of 5

This house was great! It was so nice and clean, well stocked with things that usually are never provided. We had fresh eggs and a sweet note from the owner when we arrived, that's never happened anywhere else we have stayed. Becky is such a friendly and outgoing person with such a wonderful personality. There is a nice area outside to sit and relax. Everything was just amazing. Will definitely be staying here again.

Charming Home and Owner

  • 5 of 5

My family was trying to plan a bridal shower for a cousin who lives in San Angelo with family scattered from West Texas to East Texas. I was in charge of finding a half way point for us to hold the bridal shower. Obviously the many venues I looked at were out of our price range and the food would have to be catered. I decided to look on VRBO because I have had such a great experience with these properties. Of course, I was turned down at some properties because the owners must have thought, we ladies, ages 31-75 would tear the property apart. Fortunately I found this lovely listing by Becky Yates, who when I communicated with her and explained our needs, she was more than happy to accommodate us! We were all thrilled and much to our pleasure when we arrived at the property, it was perfectly charming! Becky even greeted us shortly after we arrived and was more than accommodating to meet our needs. She even took my son, who has special needs and is a Coke fanatic, down to her house to see the old 1951 Coke Machine she had and gave him a six pack of Coke bottles. At that point I didn't care if the house fell down, she bent over backwards to make all of us feel comfortable. As for the house, it is charming, spacious and met our needs. We were able to serve our own food and accommodate 20 guests, with room for at least 10 more. Not only was the house awesome, the yard was very adult and child friendly and we loved seeing the deer at the feeder every morning and evening. I just can't say enough about how wonderful the owner and property was. This is definitely a must see and stay. Thanks Becky for making our bridal shower the success it was!

Great getaway! Dogs welcome!

  • 5 of 5

Ms. Becky is a super hostess, very friendly and welcoming! Her retreat house was very clean, spacious and the air conditioning worked great! Beds and all furniture very comfortable! Master bathroom is quite large and has a jet spa tub! Pictures are exactly how it looks but it's better in person! We brought our two dogs who had a blast running all around the property. Plenty of chairs outside, gas grill that worked perfectly, a nice bench swing and covered parking. The house is super close to many Canyon Lake activities and has "special" lake access you will need to ask Ms. Becky about - this was the highlight of our visit, so very peaceful. There is a deer feeder on the other side of the fence so we saw deer daily including two adorable little fawns! We are already talking about a return trip without the dogs to enjoy the area much more! Thank you Ms. Becky!! Kim, Kevin and doggies "Rocky" & "Adrian"

People and dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

This was a very inviting house. Our dog had room to run. The next lot over, the owner has a deer feeder that went off 2 times a day. Enjoyed watching them. You could walk to the lake on a path that Becky mowed. She even took us down to the lake on her 4 wheeled machine. The house was as advertised. Very nice fire pit. A very nice neighborhood.

Beautiful location, spacious and well equipped house

  • 5 of 5

Ms Becky welcomed us with a dozen farm fresh eggs and made us instantly feel at home here! This is a lovely and well appointed house and the one regret I have is we could not stay longer. Looking forward to coming here again!

The house is located off of 306. Turn off of Interstate 35 on to 306 or off of Hwy. 281 on to 306. The address is 1177 Cedar Bend, Canyon Lake, Texas 78133. The lake is a great place to enjoy water activities,such as boating,skiing, canoeing, and fishing and much more.

Wimberly, Texas has Market Days the first Saturday of each month in summer season. Gruene, Texas has the oldest dance hall in Texas with plenty of stores to shop.

Come and have fun.
