INCREDIBLE VIEW OF THE LAKE FROM THIS LAKEFRONT'S LARGE DECK

Nestled on 1 acre among the tall fragrant pines, this quaint 2-story home is on an exclusive quiet peninsula. This popular place includes a separate game house with pool table, foosball, darts, HDTV with Dish Network, 3 bunk beds, full bath, air-conditioning and heating. The private game house is a great remote hideaway for the kids to have their own fun during the day or overnight. You will have sole use of the boathouse with 2 electric boat/jet ski lifts, sun deck with nighttime accent lighting, swim ladder, plus pier. A boat rental, marina, public boat ramp, and a waterfront cafe are within walking distance of this lake house. The barbecue area has a mobile charcoal grill/smoker, picnic table, horseshoes, hammock, birdhouse, sitting swing, plus campfire area good for an evening family bonfire or a hot dog and s’mores roast. The lawn between the main home and the lake is ideal for games such as volleyball, badminton, croquet, etc. Bring along your favorite yard game. The sitting swing, which faces the water, is perfect for conversation and reflection. Free Wi-Fi.

You will be able to witness the breathtaking sunset, which falls upon the far side of the lake, while you are on this waterfront's large deck of the main home. Many guests have their morning coffee here. As well, you will long remember the panoramic view of the lake from the adjacent game house porch.

When you are at this picturesque and serene waterfront venue, the air is fresh and clean, the surroundings are so quiet and peaceful that it seems as if you are in the country. On a clear, cloudless night you can see the stars twinkle in the dark sky.

This vacation lakefront is the ideal spot for couples and families that are looking for recreation or just rest and relaxation from it all. The 2-story main home has a master bedroom with a king size bed, HDTV with Dish Network, recliner-lounge chair, and bathroom with shower. A king size bed and HDTV with Dish Network are in one of the downstairs bedrooms. A queen-size bed and full bunk bed (sleeps 3) are in the second downstairs bedroom. There is a full bath downstairs. Each of the bedrooms includes plump pillows, quality linens, and comforters. Bathroom towels and washcloths are also provided.

The 2150 sq. ft. home has a wood-burning fireplace and 42'' HDTV with Dish Network in the living area.

Public boat ramp, marina and boat rental (jet skis, pontoon, and ski boats) plus public parking are within walking distance of the property. There is a swim ladder and a sandy lake bottom for water lovers. Maybe you would prefer to bask in the sun at the grass shore or on top of the elevated sun deck while listening to music or reading. There is good fishing (black bass, white bass, crappie, striper, perch, and catfish) off the fishing pier. The boathouse area has lighting now so you can enjoy nighttime boating, fishing, or just the serenity of the lake. You can have an evening social on the accent lighted sun deck, with a bonfire close by upon the shore, which your family and/or friends will remember for a long time.

Barbecue Area: This waterfront property is large enough to entertain a separate picnic area among the numerous pines.

The sitting swing, which faces the water, is good for conversation and reflection.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent five wonderful days at this home on Lake Livingston. The layout of the home with it's large bedrooms and expansive deck; the game house which provided the kids some privacy and non-water fun; the large grill for each of our evening cookouts; and the wonderful dock for swimming, fishing and tying up the jet skis fit our needs perfectly. Prior to vacationing there, the owner was very responsive to my numerous inquiries. The homes and property were very clean and towels, linens, cooking utencils, etc were abundant. The small grocery/restaurant a short walk away was convenient for our last minute needs. The sunset alone is reason for us to visit again next year.

Girls getaway and family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this house twice this year and twice last year. In April, some of my girl cousins stayed and in May my immediate family stayed. We are going to make this place our annual stay for the cousins. It has just the right amount of room where you can have your privacy, yet the living area, outside deck and the pier are great when we all wanted to be together. The kids in my family loved the outdoor area with all of the room to run and play. The fishing was great. It has a gate all around it, so we never worried about the kids and where they were. It was just the right distance from LIvingston. Suzette, Texas

Had an amazing time, we were given our privacy as promised, Mrs.Marci was super sweet.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time here, it was quite and private. The neighborhood was so respectful. And there was a sheriff driving around, which made us feel a lot safer. Our renters were super nice and so was Mrs.Marci she left us at peace even tho we were really loud. Anyway I would rent here again. Only thing was that the light bugs would fly in the door as soon as we opened it & the swing rope from the pier was taken down for safety issues, also not many fish to catch but that's okay cause it was still relaxing. You must also try the shaved iced down the street at the hula hula they are to die for!!!!

Thank you so much for allowing us into your home.

Lake house

  • 5 of 5

I would like to give thanks to the owners for sharing their property with my family, friends and myself. Thanks George for making the booking so painless and providing me with all the information I needed about the property so we were well prepared on our supplies etc. I would like to thank Marci for all her hard work preparing the home for us and there to always help or answer any questions.

The home and location is absolutely perfect. Everything was there only had to bring plenty of energy. Sunsets were awesome. Game room was a nice end to a full day. Great vacation thanks again!!

Weekend Getaway for Easter

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to thank your family and the care takers for our great vacation. It was an amazing weekend and we enjoyed ourselves 100%. The home sits in such a great spot on the lake making it all the better. We will definitely try our best to make it there again.

Plenty of space on this lot - we never felt closed in on other neighbors - oh and the view is worth every penny!
