Overview

Canyon Lake House Rental Photos and Description

3 beds, 2 baths plus sofa beds

Lakefront home with gentle slope to the water's edge. Overlooks Canyon lake & a beautiful, shaded yard. This home sits half-way between Austin & San Antonio on the quiet North side of Canyon Lake. Water activities are easily accessible, both on the lake & on the Guadalupe River (famous for tubing) which is 10 minutes away. Swim or fish right from the property or put your boat in at one of the nearby free boat ramps (closest one is 1 mile away).

This home is in a quiet residential neighborhood, no parties please! Bring your bicycles as the neighborhood loop provides a great place to bicycle for the kids.

We are 13 miles from the Whitewater Amphitheater in New Braunfels & 61 miles from the new F-1 Grand Prix racetrack in Austin.

Local Area: Swim or fish right from the property or launch small watercraft (canoes, kayaks, sail boards, inflatable boats). For larger watercraft, free boat ramp is about 1 mile away. Canyon Lake Marina is about 8 miles away by car. From here you can rent watercraft (sailboats, speed boats, pontoon boats, jet skis & party-barges). Within 10 miles, is the Guadalupe River, famous for tubing...floating down the river on an inner tube. Inner tube rentals are easy to find & river outfitters provide service to return you to your starting point. We are also located about 25 miles from Schliterbahn Water Park in New Braunfels & the San Marcos Outlet Malls. The water park is rated as one of the best water parks in the country. Kids & adults alike will love this park!

In our neighborhood, enjoy the sight of deer, fox, owls, cranes, egrets, ducks, & many more. The tame deer tend to dine right outside the front door. They also enjoy a trek across the lakefront at dusk.

Major Cities Nearby: San Antonio, famous for the Alamo, the River Walk, the Spurs & much more is about 50 miles away. Visit one of the great historic treasures or perhaps spend a day at the San Antonio Zoo, Six Flags Fiesta Texas w/ a large on-site water park included in admission price or Sea World. Two more great options can be combined in one day....Natural Bridge Caverns & Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch (safari style drive through).

You may prefer Austin, about 50 miles to the North. Austin is famous for its live music scene, the state Capitol, Barton Springs pool, a large Mexican Free-Tail bat colony & the University of Texas, home to 50,000 students.

Both cities offer fabulous dining & more entertainment than we can name. There are world-class golf courses available all over Central Texas, along with many theaters, museums & sports venues.

Small towns nearby: Closer to Canyon Lake, you can enjoy small towns like Wimberley, San Marcos, Gruene (pronounced Green), New Braunfels & Fredericksburg to name a few. These towns all have great shopping districts, dining venues & outdoor activities. Wimberley is about 15 miles away & offers a free, large outdoor craft market on the first Saturday of each month (from February-December). Gruene, also about 15 miles away, has a great live music & dining venue, Gruene Hall. If great shopping & German food are your thing, check out Fredericksburg (50 miles away) with a nice scenic drive, especially during spring wildflower season. San Marcos is home to Texas State University & two enormous side-by-side outlet malls (only 35 minutes away).

About Denise

In summer 2009, we began looking for a house on Canyon Lake with the intent to enjoy it ourselves but also offer it for rent to those also looking for a peaceful getaway. We had rented a home on the nearby Guadalupe River the previous year and decided we really liked the area.

Denise purchased this house in 2009

Why Denise chose Canyon Lake

We searched around the lake for a property on the water and found there were few that were actually on the water and did not have a steep cliff leading to the lake. This house had a gentle slope to the water and was in a quiet neighborhood….perfect for us. We decided to overlook the green shag carpeting, yellow and orange linoleum and dark wood paneling because of the amazing view and easy lake access. It also helped that the home was in a quiet neighborhood, our preference.

We may be crazy but we really enjoy home remodeling projects and do a lot of the work ourselves so we decided to go for it. We stripped the interior of the house down to the framing and started over. We finished Phase I (new kitchen, windows, paint, stained concrete floors, one new bath and new lighting) just in time for high season in May 2010. After having amazing success and lots of positive feedback from our guests, we entered phase II (adding a laundry room and remodeling the second bath) in January 2011. Then, with another great rental season under our belts, we entered Phase III, the biggest of them all in January 2012. During this phase, we enlarged the master bedroom and bath to turn into a full master suite with whirlpool bath, vertical spa shower system and walk in closet. We closed in the back porch with large picture windows to add a sunroom and then we added a 750 sf cedar deck with pergola.

We continue to make small improvements to landscaping, etc. but are very pleased with the end product….a beautiful, peaceful place to getaway. We aren’t sure renting was the right thing to do now, only because it is booked all summer so we never get to enjoy it during the summer season.

Guestbook comments from the owner

AWESOME!!!

Can't begin to describe how awesome this beautiful home is on Canyon Lake even in the wintertime. We had all the accommodations needed and extra. The Stones were great hosts in every way. The home not only is beautiful and very spacious itself, but the view, it's location to attractions, and the wildlife were exceptional. We captured a picture of an owl landing in a tree as we watched the sun set one evening. We didn't get to use the lake, but we did get to view the lake as we sat around the fire pit, singing, and making s'mores. What a beautiful memory we made with the grand kids being home from college. Also, the fireworks exploding from both sides of the lake were amazing! The deck is unbelievable, too. Plenty of room as you can see in the pictures. Thanks again to the Stones for the comfortable beds and seating areas. Every review I read was my exact feeling after staying there for the week. We will definitely return and the season really doesn't matter as someone has already posted.

Amazing Lake House Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect setting along crystal clear lake. Favorite gathering place(there are many) is the breakfast bar area. We played card games and talked over our smart devices here! Master bath is a 10! The beds are something I usually look forward to coming home to. but the Lake house beds are better than mine! Plenty of towels, sheets, kitchen was stocked. a large group of deer (12-15 ) come each morning. Owner was a pleasure to work with, provided wealth of insights and info and returned security deposit same day we checked out. highly recommended!

After 30 seconds already knew we wanted to return

  • 5 of 5

We walked in to their foyer and all the way across their expansive living room was a stunning view of the glistening Canyon Lake. It was quiet, peaceful and all the amenities you would ever want. I would love to hire whoever designed their kitchen to do mine...it had everything. We loved the artwork, the comfortable furniture inside and out, the delightful deer and ducks and one of the best beds I have ever slept in. My only suggestion is to bring slippers...the floors were beautiful but cold and hard (stained concrete). We had dinner at the Silver Sage Grill...fine dining at a very reasonable price. I had the fried chicken covered with pecans, honestly, it was a little to rich for me. My partner needed a gluten-free meal and they made it special for her...a blackened red fish with garlic and butter and two servings of delicious veggies. I don't like fish at all but if we went back, I would order it...amazing. Denise was gracious and responded to our request for their beautiful lake house immediately. I do strongly recommend this house for a memorable experience.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at our home and thank you for the compliment about the kitchen. We actually designed and installed it all ourselves except the granite counter top. Sorry, we are not for hire. Lol. Anyway, you were great guests and we really appreciated the nice touch of the Thank you card left when you departed.

2014 Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 of 5

WOW! That was the word that came from all our mouths when we opened the door of the vacation home! From the beautifully remodeled kitchen to the luxurious master bath, everyone room had a special touch to it. One of our favorite spots was the new deck on the back of the home. Drinking our coffee every morning out on the deck and watching the deer feed in the yard was a family favorite. Being able to lounge in the backyard while our boys rode up on their wave runners could not of been planned more perfect. It was unanimous! A vacation REPEAT!

Spectacular Home on July 4th Weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly Unbelievable. Our stay during July 4th weekend was the best ever thanks to the Stones. From the start the Stones were very responsive to my emails and when I arrived and saw the view I was blown away. The details were an added plus and I truly felt the Stones wanted my family to enjoy their home. The open concept was just so inviting and additional room on the back deck. I can't say enough about the convenience of being able to walk down to the lake. I've been coming to Canyon Lake for years and this was the first time I've had this kind of access to the Lake front. Many thanks again to the Stones for a remarkable July 4th. I recommend anybody coming to Canyon Lake...Stay on Canyon Lake at the Stones! Definitely coming back! We will brush up on Canyon Lakes recycling information...I promise.

Owner's Response: Robert, so glad you enjoyed our home on Canyon Lake. We love to be a part of making happy family memories! We know what you mean about the lake access. The gentle slope to the lake and the great views are why we fell in love with the spot in 2009! There are few properties on this lake that have a more gentle slope, so many are very steep. And no worries on the recycling, you left the rest of the house in good shape. :) Enjoy the rest of your summer and come back again soon!
