Property description

The possibilities are endless: sit on the deck at night around the very classy LP 'firepit', roam our 12+ acres of secluded and treed hills, grill steaks on the spacious covered and uncovered decks with the awesome Canyon Lake view, swim at the nearby lake parks or float the river! Chances are much better of hand feeding our deer than seeing other people when you stay in our end of the road 2 bedroom/1 bath open concept home with ample boat/vehicle parking secured behind an automatic gate using your private code. (NOT a B&B, CONDO, CROWDED TIMESHARE, or STORAGE SHED-TURNED CABIN!) This is a privately owned, fully equipped, newly renovated home on the south side of the lake where my parents enjoyed their later years. We live on the acreage but it's a hike in-between houses...you can only glimpse of the main house from the edge of the property, not from the house. Very private, yet convenient to groceries, fast food/fine restaurants, Canyon Lake parks, boat ramps, tubing on the Guadalupe River, concerts at WhiteWater Amphitheater, and historic New Braunfels/Gruene/Wimberley, with antiquing and Schlitterbahn, plus Wurstfest is only 15 miles away (Nov 1-10).
**Master has a KING bed and flat screen tv/dvd combo;
**2nd bedroom has full bottom, twin top bunk with twin pullout under
**Living room has a comfy sectional and includes 55-inch tv/dvd with Direct TV including PREMIUM channels;
**Gates on decks can contain pets and children while letting them run up and down the ramp toward the garden or from the decks down the ramp and into the fenced yard;
**NEW! Covered overhang with children's swings, a toddler swing, tandem swing for 2 children, and a whirl-and-twirl in the big oak. FUN for kids - only steps away from the deck! Watch the kids from the deck or hammock!
**Pack and Play and camper's cot are also available on request; let us know the ages of your young children so we can add toys!

Our home has central air, stove/oven/microwave, double door refrigerator with ice maker and water filter, clothes washer and dryer, linens, towels, dishes, pots and pans for cooking, silverware, coffee maker, toaster, blender, crock pot, paper towels, trash bags, toilet paper, hair dryer, and soap for hands, shower, and laundry. There are coolers and picnic items to take to the river or lake, and even a floating cooler you can attach to a tube or boat! There are three picnic tables and a new gas grill with utensils.

No smoking inside OR outside on property (due to odor transfer from clothes to furniture), and absolutely no charcoal or wood fires, personal firepits/chimeneas, or fireworks. (And NO FIREARMS!) Thanks for understanding!
Oh! And we ask for no loud outside music please - the sound travels in the hills!
NOTE: Please contact owner with requests for waiver of minimum stay and veteran discount.
PETS: Our place isn't just pet friendly, it's pet perfect! Your furry family members can run up and down the ramps and into the fenced yard - or you can restrict them onto the decks OR in the yard. We also have dog bowls and two large blanket pieces for their naps.
NOTE: Active duty, veteran and disabled veteran discounts available. Very seriously injured Wounded Warriors contact for deep rental discounts and possible transportation from/to San Antonio. Sorry, bathroom not yet wheelchair accessible, but we do have bathroom grab bars and ramps from covered parking to home entry.
NOTE: We require full contact information for all adults prior to payment. Maximum 4 related adults, total capacity 6 persons. This is a quiet family location with a small septic.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We're a husband and wife team, native Texans who are proud to share their property with others who appreciate and respect nature. Husband: telecommutes as a software engineer for the Mayo Clinic. Wife: retired USAF Chief Master Sergeant and now partner in a business developing instructor-led and online training classes for both private and Federal organizations.

Why the Owner Chose Canyon Lake, TX, USA:
The beautiful Canyon Lake views, peaceful 10+ acres, and unusually isolated location on the side of a hill captured our hearts! We cherish our evenings listening to the sound of the birds and an occasional dog barking in the distance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our 40+ herd of deer visit daily, and several crowd around for a hand-fed treat. Their favorites are veggie scraps and any kind of bread, but especially tortillas!
