About Leslie Windham

We're native Texans who like to travel in the US and abroad. When we're at home we spend holidays and weekends at the lake with our family, cooking out and enjoying life.

Leslie Windham purchased this house in 2002

Why Leslie Windham chose Hill Country

We live in Austin, about 45 minutes from New Braunfels and have always found the town so charming. We love being on the water. It's so calm and peaceful out there, but still close to all the amenities and fun in the city.

What makes this house unique

We love to take our kayak out for an early morning paddle for an up close view of the wildlife and the morning light reflecting off the water. We also enjoy sitting on the deck in the evening with a good bottle of wine, watching the day wind down.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a great time. This place is lovely! We love the deck!

Cute house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time and enjoyed the house. Was convenient to everything and the owners are awesome. We were supposed to come Aug 25th but Harvey was coming in the gulf and they were extremely understanding and let us reschedule. Perfect for a girls get away or even a guy trip since its right on the water. Wish we would of brought some poles to fish. Highly recommend this cute house, it was perfect.

Idyllic cottage on the water

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed Egret's Landing. The cottage is very comfortable and spacious. The outdoor spaces are terrific with 3 different seating areas, all at different elevations to enable you to take in the scenery from all perspectives. We grilled and enjoyed sunsets and sunrises both!

We had a great stay at Egret's Landing. The property was exactly what I expected. The house was quaint and comfortable. We loved the backyard with the decks and covered patio. We enjoyed lots of swimming and relaxing at the dock.

Beautiful and tranquil!

  • 4 of 5

Small, no fuss cottage with a beautiful view of the river. We loved tying up our floats to the dock and just hanging out. Also loved the covered gazebo with porch swing. Great morning spot for coffee! Add a ceiling fan and you'd have perfection ;)

Comfy house. Quiet location. Beautiful scenery.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I loved our "before going away to college" getaway. Got floats at Walmart as recommended by a review. Just float near the deck. Easy access to restaurant food if you don't want to cook but full kitchen available. Would recommend to anyone.
