We arrived late afternoon to a yard full of almost-tame Canyon Lake deer and a sense of relief that here was a rental that actually exceeded expection! The house is right on the lake, it was beautifully-decorated, there was nothing lacking in the kitchen or anywhere else. The hot tub was looking right over the lake but still very private. The outdoor stereo speakers allowed us to listen to the tv/CD's while grilling out on the deck. And though there were houses on both sides, we felt very secluded due to the way the house sits on the lot.
We had a great time feeding & photographing the deer; the owners provided a bin of corn for us to feed the deer. We only left to do some riding in the beautiful Texas Hill Country surrounding the home; the rest of the time we just enjoyed the lake and house.
The nearby town offered a well-stocked grocery store, several restaurants, a liquor store - very much more available in the town than we expected.
The owners were great to work with from start to finish. When we couldn't figure out how to turn up the temperature on the hot tub, we called and they not only gave us concise instructions but also had several great suggestions as to what to do in the area.
We had a friend stay overnight who lives about 100 miles from this property. He was so impressed that he got the rental info from me so he can rent it in the future.
We will definitely be back, and will tell anyone interested in a Texas Hill Country rental about this place. It was reasonable, private, well-stocked & beautiful - all the ingredients for a perfect vacation!
