Horseshoe Bay is only 45 minutes from Austin, with its live music venues and eclectic culture. Only 90 minutes south lies San Antonio, with the famed Riverwalk, Sea World and Fiesta Texas. Quaint Fredricksburg is 60 minutes away, and offers unique shopping and eateries. Lake LBJ is a constant level lake and is simply breathtaking, offering wide open skiing, tubing, and phenomenal fishing.

Marble Falls is noted for many things but one unique experience includes drag boat races during LakeFest in mid-August of each year! These Drag Boat Races are held on Lake Marble Falls. This national championship event brings in the top-rated, high-speed drag boat racers in the United States. Over 100 boats on liquid quarter mile racing speeds up to 250 mph. Fun for the whole family.

Horseshoe Bay Airport and terminal is minutes from the house and can land large, corporate jets. Horseshoe Bay is in the middle of Texas Hill country and offers the best of wineries and spectacular wildflowers and wildlife. In short, this area offers everything you could want for a wonderful Texas experience. Great golfing is available in the area. The Texas Hill Country is a must-see, and our home offers a truly special place to come to relax and play.

About Steven and Annette Hinker

We are South Dakotans that have escaped the winters by coming to Horseshoe Bay. We love the golf, the area and the people! We have rented from VRBO many times and hope we have everything in our home that we believe is needed. Any suggestions from guests will be appreciated.

Steven and Annette Hinker purchased this house in 2014

Why Steven and Annette Hinker chose Horseshoe Bay

It is a peaceful, serene setting, yet is in the heart of HSB (less than a mile from the Hotel). Sitting on the porch with a glass of wine after golfing 18 holes is so relaxing! SO much better than a hotel room!

What makes this house unique

Close to everything Horseshoe Bay has to offer. 2 miles from a small grocery store, less than a mile to the hotel and 2.5 miles to a Subway. The marina is across from the Subway where you can launch your boat, or take your children to the swimming beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Love your place and area. Weather was perfect for the balloon fest.

Beautiful area. Hadn't been to that part of Texas before...Great Lakes in the area looks like a fun summer destination. Was a little quiet--locals thought it was winter but weather was very nice! House was great! Very nice and comfy...restaurants close time overall!

Great Stay In Horseshoe Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this great house for a long Memorial Day Weekend.

The home is very clean and well-kept and we were very comfortable.

We will definitely stay here again!

The location is wonderful for anything you might want/need to do be it golf, lake activities, grocery store, etc.

This house is on a very quiet street with no through traffic which was great for morning walks with our grandson.

And the screened in back porch is a great place to just sit back and relax and enjoy the running creek close by.

We visited with a couple of the neighbors which were very helpful with any questions we might have.

And the owners were very accommodating before, during and after our stay.

We highly recommend this home!

We very much enjoyed our time in this property. Fell in love with the screened in back porch and the house is very nicely appointed and comfortable. The location in Horseshoe Bay is perfect. Would definitely recommend this to friends. The Hill Country is a beautiful place to visit and this property is centrally located.

Car: necessary

We are .5 miles from the Horseshoe Bay Resort, when you turn right at 2147 off Cardinal, there is a liquor store; Hole in One, a sports bar with sandwiches; various shopping venues; about 1.5 miles, is a Subway with the Marina across the road; On The Rocks is next, a restaurant/bar overlooking the dam and lake; approximately .5 miles is Julie's Cochina which is a Mexican restaurant; Mia Pizza is in the same area and does delivery; the Donut Shop is next with great donuts and a breakfast menu; then the route follows along to US Hwy 281. If you turn left at 2147 from Cardinal, it is about 1.5 miles to Bayside Market and an Ace Hardware; a bit past that is the Post Office. Following that you come to Hwy 71. Turn right, go 1 m then turn right and follow that to Blue Lakes Golf Course; a challenging little 9 hole course with very friendly staff and very reasonable rates. A pickle ball court was just installed next to the empty lot next to our house. As always, you are welcome to call me personally (605-220-0082) for any other insights.

The little creek behind the house has some fish, very fun for young children. There are two fishing poles in the garage that you are welcome to use. We do have humming birds and I have two feeders. There is a bottle of nector with a recipe on it for them if you want. The feeders need to be washed out weekly for the birds health.

If anyone has an allergy to feathers, this is not the place for you. We purchased the house furnished and every pillow is feathers, even the throw pillows. The sofa, leather chair, Queen mattress pad and King Comforter are feathers.

The description says we sleep 4 comfortably, which is true, but the sofa and porch sofa can both be used. There are additional sheets that can be used for them and plenty of blankets.

We hope you enjoy your stay with us.

Annette and Steve Hinker
