BEAUTIFUL WATERFRONT HOME - SPECTACULAR OPEN WATER VIEWS - BOAT SLIP

Granite Shoals House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms upstairs, bunk room downstairs, 3 full baths, sleeps 12

The Point Vacation Lake House offers spectacular open-water views of beautiful Lake LBJ. The Point has it all : 300 feet of waterfront on Lake LBJ, covered boat dock with electric lift for your boat, fishing pier, outdoor fire pit, covered deck and porch with incredible views of the lake, and a wonderful, clean, shallow swimming area.

'The Point' lake house gets its name from its location at the farthest point out on a peninsula on Lake LBJ, giving it one of the most beautiful lake views of any home in the area. If you are looking for the perfect lake house, you have just found it.

The Point underwent a massive remodel and upgrade in 2005. It sleeps 12 comfortably. Upstairs has three bedrooms, 2 full baths, living room, dining area, and kitchen upstairs. Downstairs has a large open room with 4 twin beds, one bunk bed, a living area, and Foosball table in addition to a full bath and utility room with washer and dryer. The enclosed garage has a ping pong table.

Guest Comments: 'AWESOME TIME! My family and friends had a wonderful experience this past weekend. You have a fantastic home with the accommodations I expect and want when out of town. Weather was great, fishing was good but most of all we just enjoyed each others company.' H.C. - Ft. Worth

'We really had a great time at the lake house. The house was great and the view exceeded our expectations. Our kids had a great time fishing and hanging out on the hammock. Our entire group was impressed with the home and it made the experience one to remember. We plan on coming back. You all have done a really nice job decorating and including all the comforts of home.' J. B. – Flower Mound

'We really enjoyed the house and hope to come back sometime in the future. The kids had a great time playing in the nice big yard and fishing – they caught 4 different kinds of fish from the piers! The bunk room was also very nice for them. We really liked the common areas in the house. The openness of the kitchen/dining/den leaves lots of room for everyone to visit without being crowded. And the kitchen was top-notch! The beds were comfy – everything was perfect!' S. P. – Houston

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was great. The whole family agreed it was our favorite. So nice to have everything so available, and not have to run to the store for everything. Kids and adults all had a good time. We all loved playing ping pong. We rented kayaks from "Just Yakin" and they delivered and picked them up. We enjoyed cooking and having most of our meals there, and really didn't want to leave for anything. We felt we had the best place on the lake. We all really appreciated having the opportunity to stay in such a beautiful, comfortable and peaceful place.

Beautiful relaxing lake house!

The house is a dream come true! You feel as if you are floating on the water. It truly is at the end of the point. The kitchen was welled stocked. Plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and relax. Thanks Brian!

Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect house for fun on Lake LBJ!! The layout of the house is perfect for teenagers to stay in the downstairs, fantastic bunk room, and for the adults to be upstairs. There is plenty of yard space to play in, and the pier and boat dock provide wonderful spots to relax and enjoy your favorite beverage. We will be returning soon!!

The Glorious Point

  • 5 of 5
Wow! We loved spending a week at your beautiful, well-appointed lake house, The Point. The huge porch facing the lake, with the awesome lake breeze and fun porch swing was enjoyed by all...from grandparents to grandkids. The dock extending from the backyard was used not only for fishing in the morning, but also for swimming in the afternoon. Our grandchildren so enjoyed the waves and th not-too-deep water. And I must add, the foosball table in the garage was a big hit with the young girls, as well. All in all, every morning it was so special to walk down the hallway to the kitchen and see the wonderful panoramic view of the lake. Very memorable! We plan to return next summer if we can coordinate the dates.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am very glad you enjoyed your stay at The Point. I am repeatedly told that my pictures on the website don't do the lake house justice. The view and setting are hard to beat! I look forward to your becoming a repeat visitor like many other of my renters.

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We just recently stayed here to celebrate three milestone birthdays with my family. There were 11 of us and it was the perfect getaway. So much room, gorgeous decor, extremely comfortable,and most of all incredible views. Everyone loved sitting on the dock fishing until late in the evening. The kids loved having their own space. The lake was the perfect backdrop to take family pictures. We loved The Point and plan on coming back next summer. I have rented 8 different homes on VRBO and this was by far the best! Thank you for such an awesome stay!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
Our family got together at the Point for four days in January 2011 and truly enjoyed the house and the location right out on the water - even with the cold weather that blew in while we were there. There was plenty of room for all eight of us (4 couples). The large den and kitchen area was a perfect food preparation and gathering place. The warm fireplace came in handy. We even got in a little fishing off the pier and boat house. The housekeeping was superb, and the owner could not have been nicer. Thanks Brian for making our stay enjoyable.

Lake LBJ is the largest constant level lake in Texas. This means you will always be right on the water's edge at The Point Vacation Lake House. Our home is located in the small town of Granite Shoals. There is a small country store and cafe just down the road for your convenience. You are only 7 miles from Historic Marble Falls. Marble Falls' Main Street is reminiscent of a bygone era with old thick stone buildings, antique shops, local restaurants and boutiques. All the modern conveniences like HEB grocery store, Wal-mart, famed Bluebonnet Cafe and many other restaurants. Rockhopper's Pizza & Golf and movie theater are here as well. Additional short scenic drives in the area take you to Kingsland, Inks Lake, Lake Buchanan, Lake Marble Falls, Longhorn Caverns, Camp Longhorn, Granite Beach Water Park, Sweet Berry Farms and 3 local wineries.

There are several acclaimed public and semi-private golf courses nearby including Horseshoe Bay, Legends, Delaware Springs, and Hidden Falls.
