About Monta Kennady

Home currently owned by 3 siblings who grew up coming to the Austin Lake House on a regular basis. We have now raised our own kids with regular visits - It never gets old!!

Monta Kennady purchased this house in 1949

Why Monta Kennady chose Austin

Our grandfather, who was comptroller for Texas Parks and Wildlife, bought the property in the 40's, knowing that a Federal Wildlife Preserve was directly across the lake. He and my father built the origional home in the early 50's. The house has been expanded twice and recently updated for comfort and convenience.

What makes this house unique

We love our family lake house and want to share it with you. We have had many family holidays and events on this picturesque property.The front lawn is expansive and has seen volleyball, frisbee, baseball, and flag football games. The layout of sunporch and patio are conducive to outdoor BBQs and outdoor living. Two different sitting area with cable TV and DVD players allow 2 separate groups (kids/adults) to do their 'own thing'. Rooms are spread out so noise and privacy usually not an issue.

Lake home for New Year celebration

  • 4 of 5

Our family met at this lake home on Lake Austin to celebrate Christmas together and ring in 2015! It was the perfect spot for us! Accommodations both inside & outside were just what we needed. Thanks for sharing your home!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought 9 teenage kids and a dog for an amazing riverside vacation. The house has every amenity, and is built so solidly that it was quiet in our room while the kids stayed up and played games and enjoyed themselves. We commandeered the largest downstairs bedroom, even though it has many beds, and gave the kids the other 3. Plenty of space for all. The manager, Ann, was helpful and available through the whole process. Be aware of the picky neighbor...they really do watch to see that you're not ever on their property. No problem, though, because there is plenty to do and plenty of room.

Excellent vacation. We would love to do it all again.

End of Summer Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Reserved this location for the proximity to the water, size of the house, and the amount of grass space in the back yard. This weekend happened to be my 40th BDay weekend too!

The house is VERY spacious. The pictures don't show how much room there is. We had 15 adults and everyone slept great and room to move around inside. Even with the hot temperatures outside, the AC inside was more than adequate to keep everyone cool. I would recommend future guests to plan on bringing inflatables for the water. Things that would provide entertainment on the water.

If I'm ever in the Austin area again for a long weekend, I would stay at this house again. Thank you!

I can't say enough about this place. So perfect for families. The ONLY word of warning would be for those who want serenity. Boat and Seadoo traffic is pretty heavy. We were there mid week and it was nice but I suspect weekends would be noisy. The owners of this property understand what you need to have a restful happy time and they have set up all the amenities. Good job!

Owner's Response: Sheri! Thanks for your kind words... The lake is very popular on weekends since it has WATER!! Poor Lake Travis is the one taking the big drought hit... Please stay with us again next summer!

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

Overall it's a good lake house. Nice location, big lot, beautiful tree's, excellent view. The house itself is old but very usable. All the appliances are new or in great condition. The 3 rooms are big with the 4th being avg. The bath upstairs is quite large with ceiling fan but no ventilation. The bathroom downstairs is smaller with no ventilation or air. The TV's and accessories are in major need of upgrading. The xbox 360 was nice (bring your own remotes and games). Each room has a wall unit for cooling (old house) but, they did a great job keeping us comfortable. Some of the ceiling fans in various rooms were old, wobbly and unusable but, luckily not needed (at least for Texas heat in June). It would be nice if they gave everything some tlc - including the dock. It had some rub strips falling down and a cleat that was halfway ripped out. Ken the maintenance man was extremely helpful! Thanks Ken. Ann did a good job answering questions and helping us with our stay.

I'd love to see a boat house added with jet ski slips as well as interior upgrades with new electronics.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The place was great. Everything was as advertised and there were no surprises at all. Property managers were very kind and showed up with extra wood for the outdoor firepit so we never ran out. Dock was in great condition and access to the boat ramp down the street was very convenient.
