Amazing Family Friendly private Getaway
We recently just got back from our trip out to SF Hideaway . The Steed’s are amazing hosts and see that you have everything you need to make your trip a memorable one . From giving the kids the option to help feed the dear ... to making special trips across the lake to find live bait for fishing to name just a few . Even turning on green lights to attract the fish if you want to do some night fishing .
It’s like having magical fairies 🧚♂️ pop in and out if you need them .
The house is secluded and the gradual beautifully maintained grass slope lends to a magical play space for all .
Every detail is thought of , prestacked firewood for awesome S’mores around the fire pit , to comfy lounging chairs to sit and watch the kids fish right off the dock .
The kids had an awesome time playing crocquet on the lawn ..and the weather was simply perfect .
Gayle has the house decorated for Thanksgiving which was such a wonderful kind touch to make our trip that much more special.
We cooked a complete Thanksgiving Meal and the house was equipped with everything you could need . The beds were super cozy and there are pillows for an army . Just in case you like to steal pillows at night like I do 😂.
Might be the best kept secret in November but there is nothing better than a Thanksgiving on the Lake .
If you want a deep breath moment where you can enjoy family this is the place !!!
Not to mention if you want a quick local getaway to get out of the city in the Metroplex ... nothing beats a 1.5 hour drive to the perfect getaway.
Thank you again for sharing your home with our family and helping us make amazing memories to remember forever.

What a wonderful place to spend a long weekend with extended family members! The house is everything you see in the pictures; Gail and Frank are excellent hosts. The boat doc has a lift for the boat and facilitates another boat as well. The little ones had clean swimming waters and a HUGE yard to run and play. Oh, and there was a family of deer that come into the front yard each night with a set of twin baby deer. That was so enjoyable to watch in the evenings!
We will definitely be back again next summer to stay a little longer.
Again, if you want a nice, relaxing and wonderful time on the water... this is a perfect choice!
We had a group of 12, plus 2 dogs for the weekend and had a great time! Gayle and Frank are so nice and great hosts! We spent the whole weekend on the dock fishing, swimming, grilling and playing games in the yard. Everything was clean and organized, beds were comfortable and there's plenty of space inside for everyone to hang out. We can't wait to come back!
We had an amazing week! The home was beautiful with everything we needed plus some. The grounds were beautiful as well. We enjoyed sitting out by the lake and swimming. The dock was a great place for fishing. We caught lots of fish! Gail and Frank were great hosts making us feel very welcome and at home! We will return!
Lovely home and beautiful lake front property!
The house was even more beautiful than the pictures! Updated master bath was amazing. Kitchen was well stocked. The huge porch overlooks the lake and has a comfy swinging bed and several rocking chairs. Very comfortable and roomy for our group of 10. Gayle and Frank were super accommodating and even let our kiddos feed the deer. Tons of wildlife- from deer(adult and baby), birds galore, fish, turtles, and bunnies. There are lots of tubes and fun games. They have a foosball table and even a Ms. Pac Man arcade game in the garage! The lake is clear and great for fishing, boating and tubing. Would definitely go back again. The Huber Family
The Huber family were wonderful guests. We look forward to their next visit. It always feels good when the children give us a hug when they are leaving. That shows us they truly had a great time!
Beautiful Property! Wonderful views of nature!
We had a wonderful visit to Fransisco Bay! The house was cozy & had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable & the views were breath taking. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, kayaking out on the lake & having s’mores around the fire pit.
What a wonderful vacation!!!!
We enjoyed having you all spend your Thanksgiving at Francisco Bay Hideaway. And look forward to you coming back again soon!
