About Linda Peterson

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

Why Linda Peterson chose Granite Shoals

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great for fishing and lake access

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Peacock house. Pros: The water frontage of the property is great for fishing. The stainless gas grill is super nice and the kitchen has everything you would need. We really enjoyed using the 2 kayaks and the fire pit for smores. One day we rented a boat from Splash boat rentals. They delivered the boat to the dock and also picked it up which was a huge perk. The beds were all very nice and comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and there were lots of soft towels. There is free wifi. The owner was very responsive and answered any questions we had during our stay very quickly.

Cons: You can't really swim off the docks. The water is shallow and has a lot of algae at the bottom. The bathroom layout meant a lot of adults had to share the one small bathroom. One is inside the master bedroom area downstairs. The second bathroom is upstairs for the other 3 bedrooms. I was usually the last to shower and I did notice that I always had enough hot water.

We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments. Regarding what was believed to be algae - sometimes Mother Nature brings us gifts borne on the wind, but generally it is not algae, but rather leaf litter which eventually sinks and thereby reduces the depth of the cove. We are planning to dredge the cove which will improve the depth of the cove for swimming from the dock, but this will cause the cove's abundant water wildlife (fish, turtles, ducks, geese, and herons) that currently inhabit the cove to likely move elsewhere.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I booked this house for the sole purpose of the hot tub to soak in after running the Austin Super Spartan Race (so glad we did, we needed it!) but we were sooooo pleased with the rest of the house!! The pictures seriously do not do it justice. The kitchen alone is worth booking the house for - I wish my kitchen at home was half as nice! And the upstairs facing the water is solid windows, so perfect. It has everything you could possibly want or need. We will be booking this house again in the future for a family vacation!

Just like you would keep your OWN lake house (if you had one)!!!

  • 5 of 5
This rental is as advertised or better. My family of 5 (2 adults & 3 children) loved the house as everything you need is supplied there and more. The children had a fully stocked bathroom upstairs and 3 bedrooms, living area, and the kitchen to themselves and on the ground floor is the spa room, master bedroom and a den area with TV, game and a card table along with another fully stocked larger master bathroom (dual sinks). Outside areas to relax with tables both on decks around the house, under the decks and above the boat dock (perfect for sun bathing). As I said the house was fully stocked like you would keep your very own lake house!!! The area boat rental "Splash" was easy to deal with over the phone and even brought the boat we rented right to the boat dock out back of the house (and picked it up at the end of the day)!!!!!!! When/if not spending money on boat rental there are kayaks available for use and work great for the kids or adults that want some exercise and a little peace. Absolutely perfect rental with owners that are friendly, accessible and helpful. The neighborhood around the house is quiet and safe with lots of area to take walks and explore with small parks scattered around and lots of deer everywhere. Only negative was the alcove where the house is located is an area that is slimy so hard to swim right there but VERY close to other areas ideal to swim from. Also the master bedroom does get bright in the morning as the curtains are light colored and do not prevent the light from coming in. Will rent again without hesitation!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Peacock House. Linda and Mark were most accomodating and made every effort to make our family vacation relaxing and memorable. The property was accurately represented on the website and was clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend it.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
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!!
