About Jennifer Ward
My dad, Cowden, owns the home and lives in it part-time. He is very active in the local town, Burnet, running his Freedom Flyers organization, offering free flights to World War II Veterans and teaching the youth about aviation. I, Jennifer, live in Denver with my husband and four-legged children. I work for the University of Colorado Denver in the International Student Services department. I help my dad manage the bookings and getting the house ready for guests. This is our family's home, originally built by my grandparents. After my dad and two sisters inherited the home, they had to sell it. One day my father visited Lake Buchanan after marrying my mother and someone informed him his house was for sale again. My parent's were able to buy the house and bring it back to the family. I grew up in this home and have the best memories of exploring the outdoors and learning how to ski on the lake. We now want to share it with others, so they may create the wonderful memories we have.
Jennifer Ward purchased this House in 1964
Why Jennifer Ward chose Burnet
Lake Buchanan is the largest of the lakes in the surrounding Austin hill country area. It is known for great bass fishing and Bald Eagle tours. The house is 15 minutes drive from Burnet, offering plenty of boutique and antique shops, a variety of restaurants and all of your necessities. Drive 15 more minutes and you are in Marble Falls along Lake LBJ, also a great town for more shopping and restaurants to enjoy. There are several golf courses within the two towns. Also check out Longhorn Caverns just outside of Burnet. In the opposite direction also only 15 minutes is Canyon of The Eagles Resort where you can rent canoes, kayaks, go hiking, viewTexas stars in the observatory and go on a Bald Eagle or Winery cruise with Vanishing Texas River Cruise.

Pay attention that this home is great but not folks with mobility problems or toddlers!
Great home! Loved our stay. Fully furnished! Only glitches were a few electric outlets were dead. Very clean with gorgeous lake views across a huge back deck. Pool and hot tub are pluses.
Lovely Mid-Century Charm in a Stunning Location
Excellent place to celebrate milestones, with the photos a true representation of the house. House is well-maintained and could comfortably sleep 8. Beautiful lake views and lots of peace and quiet. My wife and I love the mid-century style of home, and it lends itself well to the lakefront location.
Next time I will put the dock to better use than fishing and bring a boat to explore Lake Buchanan.
As others have stated, if it were for sale I would be considering a lake house. It doesn't get much better than this house from my point of view.
Very nice. Great time with family. Everything and more then we expected.
The grandkids never got bored. The house and property were exceptional. Easy access to boat ramp. Will recommend and even hope to return to stay at this "Oasis".
Amazing stay at a beautiful property
We had a fabulous stay at this lovely property for our annual gathering of friends. Spent most of the time on the back porches and in the pool. Views are amazing and the house was very clean, neat and organized. We would stay here again. Thank you for sharing this gem with me and my friends!
We had a great weekend. The house was comfortable, and the views were outstanding.
Beautiful property with charm and amazing views
The pictures of this home do not do it justice. The seemingly endless back patio overlooking the lake and mid-century modern home were fantastic. My guests and I had a fantastic time at this property and were already talking about the next time we could make it down here. I highly recommend this lake house for just about any occasion.
