UNIQUE AND PEACEFUL - 174' COVE WATERFRONT

Granite Shoals House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, sleeps 8 (7 in beds, 1 in futon chair)

Shackrock lake house is a one of a kind sun filled lakeside home that will truly take you back to the lake vacations of yesteryear! This home is easy going with vintage turquoise counter tops & retro orange, white & wooden furnishings. The bedrooms are simply cozy with queen sized beds & a dresser in each. One full bath is in the hallway & there is a half bath off of the Master. Texas Hill Country and beautiful Lake LBJ views are abundant from any of 9 sun porch windows overlooking the lake. The Sun Porch offers dining for 6 & overflow sleeping for extra guests. Witness the beauty unfold from the over sized lakeside patio as the sun set's into the hill country. All while enjoying a beverage or a meal at one of two outdoor dining tables or the outdoor sofa & chaise lounge. With 174' of waterfront, there are no crowds here! The gently sloping shoreline is great for swimmers of all ages. WIRELESS INTERNET AND A BOAT DOCK!!

Outdoor Surroundings: The outdoor grounds at Shackrock are unique and alluring to the eye! The home sits on a granite outcropping with native plants and cactus scattered amongst the grassy lawn and flowering annuals. The swim area is splendid with gradual sloping granite leading into the cool calm water of the lake. We've made great progress on the boat dock and have completed the 30'X12' section. This dock will accommodate mooring multiple PWC or boats with ease. It's also great to fish off of! The home sits high on the lot which allows phenomenal views of Packsaddle Mountain, the lake and the sunsets, WOW, the sunsets!

Location and Activities: Shackrock is located in Granite Shoals, TX just off of Hwy 1431. It is approx. 60 minutes Northwest of Austin, 90 minutes North of San Antonio, 3 hours South of Dallas and about 4 hours West of Houston. Marble Falls and Kingsland are minutes away for grocery shopping, restaurants, antique and boutique shopping and laundry services. There are several Golf Courses in the area including Packsaddle Public Course, Inks Lake State Park Golf Course, and The Legends Golf Course, all in the Kingsland area, Granite Beach Water Park in Horseshoe Bay, Several Local Wineries, Enchanted Rock, Longhorn Caverns, Inks Lake State Park, Sweet Berry Farms.

LOVED IT!!!

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough good things about this place!!! The house has everything you need and the kitchen has everything you would need for cooking and grilling... It was perfect for a nice relaxing getaway on the best lake in Texas!! The patio, view, and lake front are wonderful! I loved the house decor too.... For sure coming back and bringing our family!!!

WE WILL BE BACK!

  • 5 of 5
We booked a last-minute weekend before the kids started back to school. I chose this property based on the photos of the waterfront--and I was not disappointed. The view was lovely and we enjoyed having our morning coffee on the back porch. Our kids loved being so close to the water. My son and husband fished from the dock and caught several perch and a large catfish.

The owner, Tammy, was helpful and responded quickly to my emails. The house was very clean and charming. It had everything we could need, including board games and long forks for making smores! It was great that paper plates were provided, so I didn't have to do dishes on our last day. They really thought of everything!

The kids wanted to rent a boat that would pull a tube. Tammy recommended Splash Boat Rentals and they delivered a boat right to our dock on Saturday morning. They were very reasonable and friendly. The lake wasn't too crowded with boat and jet ski traffic. We had a fabulous time on the water and it was nice to return to the house for lunch and rest before heading back out for the afternoon.
We had a wonderful weekend and we plan to come back next summer!

ANNIVERSARY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Very nice and peaceful 32 year anniversary. Nice house with great waterfront views and boat dock. Property was well kept and it was nice enjoying a cup of coffee or a cocktail on the back deck. Tammy made arrangements for my flowers to be delivered so my wife was very surprised when we went into the house. We are recommending this house to other family members. We saw deer every day and caught a couple of fish also. Marble Falls is a nice place to shop and the River Grill Restaurant is a great place for dinner.
Thanks for a great anniversary.

A PIECE OF TEXAS

  • 5 of 5
This is a really nice place. Very well kept. The view is to the west. Great Texas sunsets. I wasn't expecting it to be so clean, but it was. The shoreline is granite, not mud. The boat dock was kinda simple but we enjoyed it. Oh, the patio, was very spacious. I suggest taking a small amount of picnic type groceries for the weekend. Granite Sholes is not a big town, even though Marble Falls is down the road. We'll be back!!

GREAT STAY

  • 4 of 5
We had never gone to Lake LBJ, this was our first time, the house was clean and smelled good. The view was wonderful. We really enjoyed our time at this house, everything we needed was available to us. The only draw back was the town, not a tourist friendly town. My advice to anyone else coming out is to enjoy the lake and the house and eat at home, not worth eating in town.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Ofelia, I'm so glad you enjoyed our home.

I wish I had control of the restaurants in the area. Did you try The Farmhouse just down the road on the corner of 1431 and Phillips Ranch Road? They have Great Catfish, hamburgers and mexican food! There are also actually quite a few good spots in Marble Falls, which is only 15-20 minutes away. Chili's, River City Cafe, Alfredo's Italian, Janie's Mexican and then there are the fast food spots like Schlotsky's, Golden Fried Chicken, Sonic, Storm's hamburger's, Taco Bell, McDonald's, Subway...

But seriously, nothing beats a good old home grilled steak, salad and tater meal while sitting on the porch at Shackrock watching the sunset!

We hope to see you again out at Lake LBJ!
