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 and just added a rescue pekingese, Bobby, that love the lake area as much as we do.

Linda Peterson purchased this house in 2007

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. There are 19 parks in this city of 5,000 - one around every corner.

Peacock House

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful house! We loved the entire stay. The hot tub was a hit with the entire family, as well as the porch and deck areas. We enjoyed sitting outside listening to the water and the wind through the trees. It's located in a peaceful neighborhood and many deer were sighted during our stay. The decor is lovely and we felt right at home. Highly recommend this rental property, as well as Splash Water Rentals who we rented a jet ski from. They brought it right to our dock!

Grea Weekend Get Away!

  • 4 of 5

This house is a great weekend get away for a great price! Our family went for my husbands birthday weekend and the adults as well as the kids had a great time. We love that every bedroom has a nice size bed with plenty of space for the kids to sleep too! The deck is great to BBQ on and hang out at night. We also loved the outdoor sound system.

Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Peacock House, we couldn't contain our excitement at all the amenities that were provided. We have a 9 year old grandson that now we have stayed at Peacock House can't seem to find a way to live without a foosball table. The kayaks were a great hit with the men as a means to extend our stay into nature. Deer came into the yard three times a day and sitting on the outside porch all afternoon provided and excellent place to visit and catch up with family. The house has many notes to help with understanding how things work and leaving the house in better shape than when we came. We had a wonderful stay and the owners were very helpful and understanding. Highly recommended.

Beautifully appointed, home right on the water.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the Peacock house and we were immediately pleased to see the Deer feeding in all the front yards of the homes throughout the neighborhood. We followed the directions provided by Linda Peterson and everything went extremely well. The home is lovely and the weather was very nice for the time of year. The balcony and patio over the boat dock are great for sitting out and enjoying a glass of wine or cup of coffee in the morning. The location is ideal and restaurants and wineries are within a few minutes drive. It is really well appointed and would be fit for almost any venue.

Peacock House, Lake LBJ, Granite Shoals

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was very clean when we arrived. We got there early and the owners were gracious and understanding. Our family had plenty of space to move around and find privacy. The kayaks were a hit with the men in the family and I think we will be needing to buy our grandson a foosball table someday. Sitting on the outside porch and enjoying the weather, quiet and frequent deer was an added bonus. The beds were very comfortable and directions for checkout helped keep us all organized. Thank you for providing a lovely haven for our holiday stay.
