About Steven McCrane

Local to the area and have many other rental properties. This is our personal lake house that we seldom use so thought about the idea of VRBO as we have enjoyed many others homes for snowskiing and vacations of ours.

Steven McCrane purchased this house in 2011

Why Steven McCrane chose Hill Country

This area is so wonderful in that it is in the center of it all. Heart of Texas affords you the opportunity to drive to almost any major city in Texas in 2-3 hours.(Austin, Waco, Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio).

What makes this house unique

The back deck overlooking the lake and taking naps in the hammock in the back yard are so relaxing to read a book from.

Breath Taking and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The House was beautiful. the Dock was awesome, we spent most of our time there. the Patio is very inviting and relaxing. the weather was perfect the whole time. We could not of asked mother nature to be any better....well maybe minus some of the spiders.....The neighbors are very polite and friendly. The owner was very nice and helpful. I must of emailed him a dozen or more times, he always replied quickly. the only thing i would of changed was the lack of phone connection. No Service. overall We all had a wonderful time. was a great get a way. Thank you Steven for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind comments. Re: phone service, you must have Verizon as that doesn't work well in all of Brownwood due to monopoly of tower with AT&T. This is main reason I pay for strong wifi so that a person always has internet options.

Our stay was great, even with the storm that came through the first day we were there.

The house was everything we could hope for & then we went down to the dock, Incredible!!! That's where we stayed the majority of the time.

We were having such a great time, we called Steven & asked to stay another night,

This is a Wonderful place to get away.

Thanks for sharing

This is a nice house right on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house and it is right on the lake. The dock is wonderful. The house is the perfect lake house. It's easy to get to from the highway with easy in and out. We had plenty of parking space for our cars. This is a bonus for a lake house. The house has three bedrooms but in one of the bedrooms is a ping pong table with only two fold out chairs. There is a full size bed in the sofa located in the living room. The other two bedrooms are great with plenty of room. It was really nice having two bedrooms. Although the kitchen is small, the table is great to sit down to a meal and enjoy the view of the lake. The deck is wonderful and very large with lots of sitting outside. Although the deck is not covered there are lots of trees providing shade. The owner was very helpful with all my questions which was much appreciated.

On this visit it was a group of old high school girlfriends. We had a great time.

I shared pictures of our stay with my family, and we are all excited to stay at this house in the near future. Yes, I would recommend this lake house to rent.

Wonderful and so comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect family getaway and Mr. McCrane was so helpful. The property was nicely decorated and I will certainly stay here again. The beds were comfortable and the outside area was beautiful.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

This was a very clean, nice house with a top of the line dock. Very nice deck on the back of the house and Steven was very nice, and helpful. There is also a nice place to dock your boat just down the road with live bait and $3.00 dock fees, but was closed when we were there so it was free.
