About Lisa Mayhugh

Mike was born and raised in Arlington, Tx and Lisa was born and raised in El Paso, Tx. When they met each other after college they began a life together in ministry. The Mayhugh family enjoy sharing life with other people and opening their home to those who are wanting a break from their everyday life or to just get away and relax.

Why Lisa Mayhugh chose Livingston

This property is probably one of the most peaceful, quiet and beautiful spots on Lake Livingston. It sits nestled in the harbor of Lake Livingston. In the Spring the white bass run and on a good day you can catch up to 50 in one day. In the Fall and Winter, it's fun watching the ducks, gulls and Pelicans come flocking into shore and following the fish.

What makes this house unique

My favorite thing about the house is the view. You can be in any room in the house and have a perfect view of the Lake. But the best view is right in the back yard. You can choose from chairs on the porch, chairs around a fire-pit or out in the Boat House...whatever you choose, it is always breath-taking and worth every moment!

We love the house so much.

  • 5 of 5

This house is like my dream house.

We arrange all families with kids in this house, and young people in another house. Kids and families were really happy.

We plan to go back during summer.

The water pressure is really good.

Movies are good.

It was a great time in that house.

Overall a great place for a family event. Comfortable space with good amenities.

  • 4 of 5

We rented the lakehouse in order to gather my family and my sister's families together in one place so we needed a lot of beds. We were able to sleep 12 comfortably. We did have 7 children so I can see an addition of more adults vs children could make arrangements a little more complicated given 1 room has 5 twin beds in it. There were some maintenance issues while we were there that I do not believe the owner was aware of so assuming those were taken care of this would be an excellent rental for just about any purpose. The kids particularly enjoyed swimming off of the boat dock and utilizing the kayaks provided. Fishing was not very good but perhaps we came at a bad time for that. The owner was very responsive throughout the process - typically responding in less than 30 minutes to my queries. My only real complaint would be the "cleaning fee" charged as though I understand the house must be cleaned the rental rate we paid was seemingly high enough to cover such an incidental w/o add'l charges. We didn't find it to have been cleaned very well upon our arrival - but perhaps that was a one-off experience. Overall we'd recommend this house rental to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

We had a wonderful time Nice lake house and great boat house

  • 4 of 5

Our only negative comment was that the lawn needed to be cut. We played bad-mitten in ankle deep grass. Landscaping needs updating. The twin mattresses in the upper bedroom were not comfortable at all.

This lake house was very special to us! The deck outside is amazing with lots of space. The kids loved swimming around the deck where their parents could see them. There was more than enough room for everyone to sleep and be comfortable. It is truly a spectacular house I would definitely rent here again!
