We live an hour away between Jonestown and Cedar Park across from Lake Travis. I lived in the area as a child, but my spouse is a transplant from the beautiful Lake Michigan area. I guess you'd call us lake people. We have seven grandchildren, but only two are local. The others are in Raleigh, NC. We also have a pair of small Shih Tzu dogs that love the lake area as much as we do.

Linda Peterson purchased this house in 2004

We previously had a smaller rental on Lake Travis, but sold it because water levels had fluctuated so much. Lake LBJ is referred to a constant-level lake, so boating is never hampered by low water. The area is a quiet, congenial, slow-paced kind of place where folks wave as they drive by even if they don't know you.

There is a lot of wildlife wandering around - prized plants are a favorite of the local deer population. We had a very small fawn take up residence in the shady plants of our tree round in front of the house. We named this place for the two peacocks who liked to wander our property. Unfortunately, all peacocks had to be removed. Butterflies, song birds, and millions of stars on quiet nights all add up to a wonderful place to rest and relax.

The Peacock House was all and more than we expected! If you are looking for a place to just relax...this is it. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. I loved waking up and seeing the the view of the lake right from the bed in the master bedroom. The photos do not do this place justice. My husband and I took our teenage daughter and her friend, of course it was too much house for what we needed, but will certainly return even if it was just the two of us!! We enjoyed playing games and the Foosball Table was a hit with all of us. Didn't see any peacocks but the abundance of deer we saw on our evening walks made up for it. The girls enjoyed the use of the Kayaks and the dock came in handy when we rented a boat. Our trip was a last minute decision and Linda was so accommodating and made the transaction a breeze! She knew we would be arriving late our first night, so she made sure she left the lights on for us!! She put Tom Bodett to shame! LOL Overall....this place is a hit all the way around..great beds, linens were quality, spacious and clean. Would highly recommend!!

Interior facilities and equipment were in very good condition, and were adequate and enjoyable for all age groups. Kitchen was very nice and well stocked. Good supply of linens, towels and paper goods. Great decks. Overall a great experience. Only disappointment was that the boat was not available. Would recommend to friends.

Great vacation home!

We had a great time while staying here. My husband and I went with our two teens (16 and 19) and their 2 friends. Plenty of room for everyone and a great kitchen, even had a pitcher and a whisk! Everything was as described. The foosball table was a huge hit with the boys. And even though a foosball man's foot broke while we were there, I emailed Linda, and Mark was out in an hour to repair so the games could continue! The master bedroom is great, very comfortable bed. If you like a dark room, however, I would advise you to pack a sleep mask as the room gets very bright when the sun comes up. Lots of deer in this neighborhood, so drive carefully, especially at dusk. We had deer run across the road right in front of us on two occasions. We rented a boat from Splash rentals and had a great time, very smooth transaction. They had a little trouble finding the house from the water's edge so verify they know where they are bringing the boat! The kayaks were a hit with the teens too, a great extra. We had dinner one night in town at Francesco's. Great pizza, it is BYOB. Overall it is a great house, and I would definitely recommend it!

If you have a large get-together planned, this is the place for you! It was just my husband and I staying there for a week, as we chose the home for the use of the boat. Unfortunately, the boat was not working. We were able to rent a pontoon from Splash Rentals at a very reasonable price and kept the boat at Linda and Mark's dock.
This home is decorated very tastefully with fine furniture and all kinds of extras that you may need.
I am all about how the water pressure is and the bed sleeps, when we stay anywhere. The master bath shower head was AWESOME!! Water was hot and pressure excellent! The sheets and towels were high quality and not "itchy". So soft and high thread count. The mattress in the MB was so comfortable..you sleep like a baby! The residence was as nice or nicer, than some Hiltons and Marriotts, we have stayed in. Linda and Mark are very accommodating and eager to assist. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. Lots of things to do. Excellent flat screen TV's, games, and we were so grateful to be able to take our dogs. You have to pick this for your next vacation at Granite Shoals!
