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

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.

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.

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!

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.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
This lakehouse was a lovely get-away for my family. The owner had everything we needed. The house was clean and had many amenities. The view was lovely and you can walk in the lawn barefooted! We had a great time and will stay again!

A Memorable Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect getaway for our family reunion: Plenty of space, direct lake access, a fire pit for smores, and all the toys any kid could ever want. We spent every moment of the weekend outside, and had more than enough beds for all of us to sleep comfortably when the sun finally went down. The pictures truly don't do the place justice We will definitely be back!

Back Yard to boot and great location!

  • 4 of 5
I stayed here with my family of about 8 people for a week. The house was the perfect size for everyone to spread out and have plenty of privacy - but we definitely could have made room for more people and been very comfortable! The back yard is definitely what makes this house - it is huge - lots of room for games and socializing - and backs up right to Lake Austin. The house was clean and met all of the expectations we had from reading the description and rental agreement. The location was great as well - very close to HEB and Torchy's tacos - two of my favorite Austin staples - and also close enough to anything one might need during their stay. Z Tejas up north also was not a bad drive and we had a spectacular brunch there - if you're not familiar with Austin put weekend brunch on your list of things to do. We had every intention of getting out and about in Austin - but found that we had such a nice time at the house that we barely made it out for a meal on some days (not that we had to, the grill was great!)

My only "complaint" is that some of the recreational equipment at the house seemed old and in need of some TLC. We had a hard time finding the appropriate air pump and settings for a few items, but when we contacted the owners they quickly had someone over to help, replace the parts, and get everything set up for us.

My family and I had a great time at this lovely home and I'm sure we'll be back in the future.
