Guestbook comments from the owner
David, Kathy, we are home after a great week sharing your home. A perfect choice for the children - so much to do - all had a great week. All said they would gladly return - so maybe in 2012 - we'll do this every other year. Calif. family is on way back home. Of course, it is always good to be back in one's own home - even after a great vacation. Thanks to you for help in putting this reunion together - and to Gary for helping us with questions while there.

Owned by 2 Fort Worth couples that use home frequently and enjoy the fact that home is less than hour away

Kristi Arnold purchased this house in 2001

Perfect county setting, large 2 acre lot with tons of trees on the amazing Brazos River/Lake Granbury that provides miles of glass smooth water ideal for barefoot skiing or other water sports.

Sitting around the huge stoned in fire pit, watching game on TV while sitting at the full outside bar and outdoor entertainment area. Playing on sand beach with kids or just cooling off in water watching boats and action on river.

JUST ONE THING

  • 4 of 5
this property is amazing. everyone rave about it and even stated this was the best vacation they ever had. the only complaint EVERYONE had, even the men, was the cleanliness. we all recommend a new cleaning service. A substantial cleaning fee is charged but the only cleaning done, hopefully, was the bedding. we definitly left the place cleaner than it was when we got there.

EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
The booking was smooth, and handled without issues by Kathy. We (20 people) arrived at the property to find that it was not ready to occupy as the cleaning hadn't occurred yet. One of the toilets wouldn't flush. The cleaning lady Cindy made an emergency run out to the location and did an excellent job of getting it ready. In general, we found that the place was not too well maintained, but nothing to complain much about. The place is very well stocked with watersport gear, including canoes, a boat, and plenty of life jackets. We had a great time at just enjoying the river, the perfect location, and the tiki bar. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Sunil for what I think is a very accurate review. My husband had the cleaning crew working 16 hours a day for over a week getting one of his large commercial projects ready to open and they flat forgot to go down and clean. They immediately rushed down and got the place ready that afternoon after I spoke with them as having not cleaned is totally unacceptable. As our description on VRBO says this is a rustic lake house really by design and desire. As Sunil stated in her review some things are not perfect but nothing really to complain about. If looking for great house in great location to go down and have fun with family and friends (less than 20 as sorry Sunil but bit over max) this is great spot. If looking for perfect 5 star 4 Seasons Hotel and something to complain about, this is not the spot for you so please do us both a big favor and not rent. Our other 2 properties down the street listed on VRBO are newer and bit nicer as we maintain them as rentals where this homes primary purpose is to use as our lake house and rent out the weeks we do not use.

Thanks again Sunil and look forward to having you back soon!

GREAT WEEKEND WITH FAMILIES

  • 4 of 5
The house met all of our expectations. The set up is great for families with kids of all ages. We had younger kids who loved the outdoor entertainment and walk up beach. The water was low, but that didn't stop us from enjoying it.

AWESOME LOCATION, OVERLOAD ON THINGS TO DO!!

  • 4 of 5
The listing was accurate for the renters. The photos were also informative for the renter to get an idea of the property. The property was however not at clean as we would have liked it to be. After visiting with the owner she gave us a discount on the cleaning; as friends had stayed and the cleaning service had not come. :)) Thank You Kathy!! ALSO.. Ask for two nights rental?? She gave us a reasonable deal. We also rented the house next door and were very pleased!! We had some die hard fishermen with us and they loved it. The water level could have been better, but Mother Nature is in charge of that. The hot tub was fun for our kids!! We played horseshoes, pitched washers, and roasted S'mores on the fire pit! We had 28 for Christmas/Thanksgiving for the weekend. We will rent again! Some of our family went to Grandbury for a look-see and enjoyed the square tremendously! Thanks Again!!
