About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath Home With Pool, Boat Docks, Lots Of Parking

Whether seeking a respite from the hectic pace of city life or busy job; looking for a family friendly gathering place for a long weekend or week; girls trip to catch up or guy's/couples golf outing, this is the home for you.

The home has spectacular views of the lake from any room and offers both indoor and outdoor living.

As you pull up to the house and into the large driveway for multi car parking, you will immediately transition to the casual and relaxed environment that the lake provides. Enter through the front stairs to a split staircase leading to the upper living areas or the lower bedrooms. New tile has been installed throughout the house and showers remodeled with new tile and fixtures. In November 2014, all the windows in the house were replaced to provide better energy efficiency and allow windows to open to enjoy the breeze in spring and fall while maintaining the spectacular views. In 2017, all the wood was removed and replaced on the exterior, and a new upper deck, railings and staircase were added for outdoor entertainment.

The upstairs has a fully equipped kitchen to allow for cooking meals if not enjoying one of the fun restaurants around the lake. Included are service for 12, beverage glasses, microwave, coffee maker, oven, cooking utensils and cookware, granite counters and a large storage pantry to help manage space. First aid kit and fire extinguishers and provided to ensure a safe stay for our guests. Sit at the bar adjoining the kitchen to keep each other company while preparing meals, snacks and beverages.

Adjoining the kitchen is a dining area with table for 10, buffet . The dining room opens to the living area complete with leather sofas, club chairs and flat screen TV with cable access to your favorite sports programs, movies, news and regular programming. The wall of windows offer constant views of the lake. Exit the door to enjoy the upper deck with two tables and chairs for 10, plus a club chair and ottoman to curl up with your book. The new gas grill offers alternatives to indoor cooking....did you say hamburgers, steak or grilled fish?

In the corner of the upstairs is the master bedroom and bath. Again, the wall of windows provides breathtaking views from the queen size bed. A TV hidden in the wall of storage cabinets also houses extra essentials of blankets, pillows, etc. The master bath is newly remodeled with new tile shower and new fixtures.

A half bath is located at the top of the stairs for convenience and accessibility to guests on the upper floors.

Heading downstairs offers 3 bedrooms with lots of sleeping space for many. Separate into families, kids vs. adults or any configuration that meets your needs. Regardless of which room you select, each has a wall of windows overlooking the pool and private door to the outdoors so no need to interrupt sleeping friends.

Just outside the first bedroom is a full bath with shower / tub combination and fresh new towels. A full washer and dryer are also available downstairs for guest use.

The bedroom to the left offers a queen bed and twin bunk beds, all with fresh new bedding and linens. Built in cabinets offer plenty of storage.

The middle bedroom offers a queen size bed plus a small sleeper sofa and ottoman, along with plenty of built in cabinets. Again, all new bedding makes for a fresh and restful environment.

The third and largest room downstairs serves both as a bedroom and a gathering / game room, complete with a full / twin bunk bed combination and a Lazy Boy Sleep Aire Queen Sofa bed. A lounge chair and ottoman offer a quiet reading spot. The large round game table and chairs are perfect for a friendly game of cards, putting together a weekend puzzle or enjoying board games. A TV with Cable is located in the large wall of cabinet storage. A separate bathroom and shower room are located within this bedroom.

Step out from any downstairs bedroom or come down the stairs from the top deck to enjoy the lower deck with seating, lounging and of course the pool with a basketball goal for entertaining games. The pool is a game pool depth of 4 feet with stair entrance from both ends. The spa adjoins the pool for cooler nights entertainment.

Just beyond the pool is a large 2 slip boat dock for boats and jet skis, swim platform with steps and ladders into the lake. Perfect for floating in the water, tubing, waterskiing, paddle boarding, canoeing and of course fishing. Enjoy the decking for watching the spectacular sunsets, late night story telling or sleep under the stars!

Amenities at Walden include the fitness center with its daily classes for every fitness level, friendly tennis games on the Walden courts. Golf at Walden Golf Course just a short 3 miles from the house. Although there is the pool at the house, you can also try the large pool at Walden's Yacht Club complete with kiddie pool and cabanas that offer a different view of the lake. Walden Yacht Club offers casual dining, a special wine room, and pool side snacks / meals.

Spring, summer, fall or winter, the lake is a perfect place to be. Even sitting on the deck in a rain shower can be perfect. If you find you want to explore beyond the lake, there are many activities in the surrounding communities. Montgomery offers antiques, wineries, exploring history while Conroe and The Woodlands offer a wide variety of well know stores and restaurants along with the Woodlands Waterway and concerts at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.

About Rick and Jane Jones

Rick and Jane Jones are not strangers to Lake Conroe. Before purchasing another home that they have enjoyed since 2002, they boated in the area for years before that. Rick opened Dockside Marine dealership on Hwy. 105 and subsequently sold in 2008. With 30 years in the boating industry, Rick is extensively educated about the water, boats, jet skis and lake living. Jane retired in 2012 from a large corporation and decided a great project would be the addition of a new property to help others experience the wonders of living on the lake.

Rick and Jane Jones purchased this house in 2013

Why Rick and Jane Jones chose Montgomery

This property was a perfect addition for us because it belonged to our neighbors of 11 years. When they first considered selling the property, there were 8 calls the first day! The owners wanted us to buy knowing the care we would give the property and the enhancements we would make to it. They were right; we have enhanced the property which will make your stay more enjoyable. We are frequently next door so any issues can be addressed quickly and to your satisfaction.

What makes this house unique

As we have prepared to have guests, we would sit on the upper deck to experience the views, cooked in the kitchen to ensure all essentials were provided, slept on the beds to ensure they were comfortable and yes....enjoyed the pool. In addition to the all new tile and new paint, we had new insulation blown into the attic to ensure comfort regardless of the outside weather.

Beautiful home, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome property! The location couldn't be better for Lake Conroe. Access to the middle of the lake on one side, and a nice little cove on the other. This provides for some really incredible views. The outside deck and backyard of this house are just great. Tons of room/seating on the deck and a huge backyard, fenced on both sides. The house itself is great too. Came with everything you could imagine you need and then more. Very spacious inside, very clean, and well decorated. What I really can't say enough about are the owners. Rick and Jane were extremely helpful throughout the entire process and made huge accommodations to make sure all of our needs were met. They were available over the phone at all times and very friendly. This is my second time staying in this home and it certainly won't be my last.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that we were able to assist you with your very special weekend and that the house provide the perfect setting for you. We work hard to make the accommodations nice for our guests, but it is nice to hear that we were able to respond to your questions timely, given our commitments to the Houston Rodeo for 3 straight weeks. This is not our normal schedule so we do appreciate your very kind comments. We hope to see you back at Lake Conroe in the future ! Jane and Rick

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding at The Carriage House with enough out of town family that we had to find two homes to house them all. The home had plenty of room for everyone. It was clean and well-equipped. It was winter (and we were pretty busy) so we didn't take advantage of the pool and the hot tub but the view was fantastic and so peaceful--from the dock and from the deck. It was my first VRBO experience. Rick and Jane were a joy to work with--very responsive and helpful. I would definitely come back-we've got two more children to marry off!

Amazing...

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay. We loved that we could either jump into the pool or dive into the lake. Most of us played in the pool. The home is very well set up. Each of us enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended!

Our goal is to have guests who are happy with their accommodations and make great memories in the process. Thank you again for the review! Jane and Rick Jones

Very Impressed and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Our family selected this property because it had the room and the amenities for a fun time together. We brought our boat for tubing, knee boarding and a little fishing. If we were not out on the lake the kids were in the pool.The kids had a great time. we took advantage of local restaurants that catered our evening meals. McKenzies - BBQ was outstanding and so was the local pizzeria. Why cook, when you can spend more time watching the kids have fun and saluting the beautiful sunsets.

great lake house!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The house had everything we needed! The only items that were lacking were batteries for the remotes and some lights burned out, and the main TV didn't work, but we didn't mind. Everything else was wonderful. We got some fishing in and having the dock was nice! The hot tub was relaxing too! Will definitely come back for the next family/friend get away.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay on the lake. We try to ensure all the batteries are in the remotes an drew working; so sorry someone removed one and the other side weren't not working. The light bulb has been replaced to provide better light in the downstairs hallway. We will contact the cable company tomorrow. After trying on Saturday and again this afternoon to get any channel to display, we believe the unit has gone bad. We hope they can repair by next weekend. Thank you for your feedback. We work hard to provide a home with many amenities and services in working order.
