LAKE FRONT SOLITUDE - PERFECT FOR FAMILIES WHO LOVE THE WATER!

Lake Buchanan House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, sleeps 8.

Blue Haven Lake Home is the perfect place to unwind and get away from the stresses of everyday life. When you are at Blue Haven, you will feel like you have access to your own private lake. Blue Haven Lake House is located on the arm of the Colorado River so even during times of drought, there will always be water.

The Master Bedroom has a private bath, California king bed, a queen-sized sleeper sofa and a view of the lake. Guest Bedroom has two twin beds, a bunk bed and a private half-bath.

The Front Living Area has a working fireplace, TV/Blue Ray player, queen-sized sleeper sofa.

Back porch has two grills.

Renters have use of a canoe and kayak.

Blue Haven Rental Home is located very close to the Canyon of the Eagles where eagles are known to be seen searching for a meal from the lake.

Paradise Point is less than a mile away and currently charges only $5 to use the boat ramp and park your vehicle for the day. Paradise Point can be used when the lake elevation is above 994 feet.

A floating dock is on the premises, so it would be easy to dock your boat right in front of the house during your stay. There are life vests available to use.

***Blue Haven is a Non-Smoking Home both inside and outside the home.

***Although we are huge animal lovers and have our own pets, they are not allowed at Blue Haven. We want Blue Haven to be available for those with pet allergies.

Blue Haven’s maximum capacity is 8 people, there is a fee per additional person per night.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 23, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
This was the perfect place for a family vacation. My teenage kids were entertained the whole week with the kayak and the canoe. We grilled. I cooked in the completely furnished kitchen (I have never rented a place that everything I needed provided except the food - there was even salt and pepper!). There was a stack of board games and puzzles provided. It is close to boat rentals and jet ski rentals. There is also a great winery up the road with tastings and tours. Everything was very nice but you didn't feel like you were in a museum. It felt like home. I look forward to coming back - what a great, relaxing vacation. I literally have nothing negative to say about this property.
Owner's Response: Rob,
I am thrilled that you and your family had such a great time and I love that you got the feel of the place: a home away from home! It is funny that you would mention the kitchen, what we supplied, including salt and pepper. We recently visited friends who rented a house in Destin, Florida and the owners provided very few kitchen items and did not include salt and pepper. I couldn't believe it. It seemed to me like you would want to do everything you can to help someone feel at home while they stayed at your place. It sounds like we helped you feel that way and I am so glad!!
We would love for you and your family to come back any time. Let Neal know we are praying for him. :)

This house was wonderful! The owners were so great to work with. They even went up to the house before we arrived and left me a nice gift basket for my birthday weekend!!!
The water is pretty far down and it was still cold, but we plan to go back when we can enjoy swimming and jet skis. We spent our time relaxing and grilling food as well as playing games and enjoying the sun in the HuGe backyard.
Owner's Response: We are SO glad that you had a great time! You were awesome guests as well and we hope you come back soon.

Perfectly Peaceful

We stayed at this wonderful house for a quick weekend getaway! It is such a peaceful place! It was just me and my husband and our newborn, but our other two children would have loved it as well. It is great for kids of any age. Very spacious backyard and lots of water-front fun. We would love to go back with our whole crew. It can easily sleep a family of 6 with a couple of extras on the couches too.

The house is VERY clean, well maintained, and nicely decorated which makes it really easy for this momma to relax. We cooked for every meal and we had everything we needed by way of pots, pans, utensils, condiments. The owners have thought of everything to make this EASY! Since it was early in the season, we did a lot of sitting outside and eating outside. Very nice and easy! If we had played in the water, we would recommend some kind of water shoes (which I would wear at any lakefront area). I also really like that there are so many sitting areas inside and outside of the house. The house is much more spacious than even the pictures look. There is a sitting area with games at the back of the house and there is a sitting area with a TV/ Blu ray player at the front of the house. There are also 2 eating areas. This makes it great for some wanting to read and play games and others wanting to watch movies. Can definitely accomodate a big family with varied interests :)

The only thing that you need to plan for is that there is no internet. This was a good thing for us, as we were looking to disconnect from email, etc.

I would highly recommend this place!
Owner's Response: I am so glad that you and your family had such a great time! I also love that you were able to have fun and relax - two activities that we highly recommend at the Blue Haven. Good point about wearing water shoes - we do have a few that guests can borrow, but they are smaller sizes.

I am looking forward to you and your family returning and enjoying more "down" time - something that is hard to find sometimes. :)
