SECLUDED LAKESHORE SPOT - GAME HOUSE, BOATHOUSE, SLEEPS 12

Blanchard House Rental Photos and Description

Private boathouse, 2 elec lifts, gamehouse, BBQ area + campfire.area, sleeps 12

Nestled on 1 acre among the tall fragrant pines, this charming 2-story hideaway is on a quiet peninsula. Private facilities includes separate game house with foosball, pool table, darts, full bath, 3 bunk beds, HDTV Dish Network, air-conditioning and heating. This game house is a perfect place for the young people to have their own retreat during the day or overnight. You will have sole use of the open boathouse with 2 electric boat/jet ski lifts, sundeck, swim ladder, plus lit fishing pier. A boat rental and marina is within walking distance. The barbecue area has a mobile charcoal grill, picnic table, plus a campfire area for an evening family bonfire or a hot dog and marshmallow roast. The 2 sitting swings, which face the water, are perfect for conversation and reflection.

You will be able to witness the breathtaking sunset, that falls upon this side of the lake, while you are on the deck that wraps around the side and front of the house or from inside through the many glass windows.

When you are at this picturesque and serene waterfront home, the air is fresh and clean, the surroundings are so quiet and peaceful, it seems as if you are in the country. On a clear, cloudless night you can see the stars twinkle in the dark sky.

Private boathouse, sundeck, & 2 electric lifts: You can easily operate the 2 electric lifts at the boathouse. The larger lift will accommodate pontoon, tri-hulls, or V-hull boats. The second lift will accommodate 1 or 2 jet skis (jet skis, pontoon, and ski boat rentals plus a public boat ramp all are within walking distance of this property). During the day, you can swim off the pier, fish (black bass, white bass, crappie, striper, perch, and catfish), or bask in the sun on top of the elevated sundeck. You will enjoy good nighttime fishing off the pier or crow's-nest. You can have a midnight party there that your friends or relatives will remember forever. ***Allow No More Than 10 Individuals At One Time On The Sundeck. Swimmers Need To Be Supervised. There Are No Lifeguards On Duty.

Private game house: The private game house has a pool table, foosball, dart game, HDTV Dish Network, 3 bunk beds, couch, and a full bath. The house is air-conditioned and heated for year-round use. This game house also has plump pillows, quality linens, and blankets. Bathroom towels and washcloths are also included.

BBQ area: This waterfront property is large enough to entertain a separate picnic area among the numerous pines. Within this area, ideal for large groups or reunions, is a picnic table, campfire area, and a mobile charcoal grill for your outdoor pleasure. The two sitting swings, which face the water, are perfect for conversation and reflection. The well manicured grass area between the shore and main house is large enough for your group or family reunion to play badminton, horseshoes (already in place), or croquet. You will need to provide your own game equipment.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent five wonderful days at this home on Lake Livingston. The layout of the home with it's large bedrooms and expansive deck; the game house which provided the kids some privacy and non-water fun; the large grill for each of our evening cookouts; and the wonderful dock for swimming, fishing and tying up the jet skis fit our needs perfectly. Prior to vacationing there, the owner was very responsive to my numerous inquiries. The homes and property were very clean and towels, linens, cooking utencils, etc were abundant. The small grocery/restaurant a short walk away was convenient for our last minute needs. The sunset alone is reason for us to visit again next year.

best of the best

  • 5 of 5
I am so late in writing this review but I am still thinking about what a wonderful place this was to meet our friends from Arizona. The house was most excellent and we really enjoyed the place. Being from Maryland we were looking for a nice warm spot to spend time with friends. Our luck was that we enjoyed the coldest early December that they have seen in "years", but we didn't let that ruin our stay. They guys even fished in the bitter cold and had some success.
The home is well stocked and clean. The game room was also a huge plus since it was cold outside.
George was awesome to work with, he replied to any questions quickly and even made arrangements for us to check in a little earlier than the normal check in time.
We totally enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again, in warm weather, so the guys can fish and the girls can enjoy that wonderful deck.
This is not the first homeaway.com rental we have booked, it is however; the best yet. Oh, I can't NOT mention the wonderful restaurant about a block and a half away, seriously like dining in someone's home. Everything was homemade and delicious. The staff there was so friendly and attentive. Each time before we would leave they would let us know what is on the evening and next days menu.
We also attended the Church on the Lake. While they didn't seem friendly, no one greeted or spoke to us, it was a fabulous service and we really enjoyed it. Great bunch of talented musicians and singers.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for a 4 day, 3 night getaway for my wife's birthday. Upon arriving, Jimmy greeted us and pretty much gave us the ins and outs of the place, the town, and the assurance that he was there in case we needed anything.
The decorations in the house added to the ambiance of the very large lakefront property. Everything was in proper working order and we encountered nothing that ever gave us any problems during our stay. The family pictures in the living room area were a nice touch as well.
The game room was sort of the teens dungeon. Dart board, pool table, foosball table, several bunkbeds, and full bath allowed them a sort of privacy of their own while not being but about 50' from the main house.
A large portion of the yard (immediately in front of the house) had ample space for us to set up a volleyball net and still had plenty of space left over. The picnic area, which is located immediately in front of the game room, is almost fully shaded during the daytime hours and allowed us to be outside during the daytime hours without being beaten down on by the sun.
The pier/boat dock was also one of the more populated areas during our stay. The water around the dock seems to be around 6'-8' in depth at the time of our stay, so provided for some excellent swimming.
Overall, everyone complimented the place and truly enjoyed their time there. Can't wait to be back.

Wonderful Place for our Youth Group

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at the lakehouse. Mr Partin has been so wonderful to our group! The house was clean and in good repair. The kids LOVE the gameroom, hours of fun!!! We also took advantage of renting a pontoon boat to better enjoy all the lake had to offer. The local marina was also kind and helpful. We have taken our youth many places, but we have chosen to return here!

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends have been visiting this lakehouse for 15+ years--sometimes multiple visits in a year. My husband and I were married on the sundeck of the boathouse 5 years ago. We have never had anything but a great stay at the house. The house is great for a large group (10-12). There is plenty of room on the deck to enjoy morning coffee and listen to the birds. There is a firepit, a grill, horseshoes and a big yard to play outdoor games. Sadly, we never have time for everything! Now that the kids are older, the gameroom gives them a place to play away from the adults. The mornings are calm and peaceful on this quiet part of the lake. The evenings are relaxing as you watch the sunset and then stargaze or fish! The owner and caretaker are always extremely helpful and very accommodating. Another great lake weekend is complete!

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here in January 2013. The kids loved the game room and the large outdoor area. Everything was very clean and well cared for. We loved all of the outdoor seating and are looking forward to going back in warmer weather so that we can take advantage of that more. The boat house was awesome with a wonderful swing on the upper level. I was so surprised to see that the outdoor grill was super clean. We enjoyed a dinner of hot dogs and s'mores on one cold evening. The neighborhood was very quiet and beautiful for our daily walks. We had one incidence where the washing machine leaked but the caretakers were quick to respond and got it fixed immediately. The only thing I wish the owners would provide (even at an extra expense) would be internet. Although I do like to get away from it all, my kids are avid gamers and would love to be able to connect with their friends while on vacation. I would recommend this place to anyone who has kids. We're looking forward to revisiting this property in the summer when we can swim and maybe jet ski on the lake. Thanks for making this property available.

Distinctive is a good description of this peninsula where the property is located. This lakefront home is in Indian Hills Estates which has very minor traffic allowing safety along with peace and quiet for those wanting to bicycle, walk, or jog. This area on the lake provides beautiful scenery and a view of the lake while you take the 3 mile adventure around the vicinity. You will possibly meet some of the friendly residents when you leave the lakehouse to explore this island-like-environment.

Golf: Mill Ridge Golf Club has a 9-hole layout which winds around the historic Ogletree Sawmill which was founded in 1902. The course also incorporates a pulpwood yard, Choates Creek and the abandoned right-of-way of the Waco, Beaumont, Trinity & Sabine (W,B,T & S) Railroad into its design.
