Granite Shoals House Rental Photos and Description
Our family home for over 20 years was built with relaxing and family gatherings in mind. Put your normal rental property experience out of your mind - this property is professionally decorated and landscaped and is maintained to the highest level.
The House: When you enter you will be greeted by soaring ceilings and beams in the main living room. A grand piano (player with music library) is located in this fireplace-centered room. So don't worry if you are not an accomplished pianist - you can always have music in the house and on the patio. Satellite radio is also available in surround sound in the living and patio areas.
TV/Quiet Room: If you need to get away from the relatives there is a TV Room off the main living area where you can retreat to read, watch TV or just relax. The sofa in this room makes into a double bed if you need the extra sleeping space.
Kitchen: The owners love to cook and so will you. All the newest appliances with double ovens, cooktop and disposals at every sink. And you'll never run out of ice with the ice-maker, and an extra refrigerator outside keeps the drinks from stealing all the refrigerator space. There is more cooking flexibility available with a double gas burner on the back porch, a stainless grill outside, and a large smoker in the cypress-shaded boat dock/beach area. Unique stone countertops throughout the Kitchen with adjacent bar and dining area - all with unbelievable views.
Covered Porch: Get up early and watch the Lake come alive with wildlife and birds, or catch the sunset from the covered porch. This spot is incredible and likely the center of activities for the week. You can also push the furniture aside and roll out the ping-pong table for the family tournament.
Master Bedroom: Spacious closet space with a luxury Master Bath which includes big tub, double shower and a Steam Room. Weight room off the Master Bath with a sitting couch that makes into a single bed in a pinch. Both the bedroom and bathroom have access onto the covered porch and back yard.
Guest Rooms: Two guest rooms with connecting bath (Shower and Large Tub). The Bunk Room has a flat-screen TV and a hand-made cypress queen bunk bed that will sleep a whole family or lots of kids! The Red Room is a quiet retreat with a queen bed.
The Grounds: Like no other on the Lake, this property has quiet manicured grounds which have hammocks, swim dock, BBQ smoker and boat dock, and all accessible by a manicured trail which traverses the property along the waterfront. The south side has a quiet beach area that is shaded by huge native cypress trees and is perfect for small children or just soaking your feet while the Smoker is chugging along. You can also drop a lawn chair in here for the best spot on the Lake. The west side (point) has a double swing hung from a cypress tree and stone steps into the Lake. The north side has a swim dock that also is great for fishing. This dock has underwater lighting for night swimming and fishing. Two kayaks on the dock for guest use.
All of this is centered on the view across the Lake at Packsaddle Pass - and the sunsets you get every evening that you will want to plan around.

We live in Texas and use this home for our Family gatherings. It is a special place as you will see from the photos in the home, and has been the site of many first fish caught over the decades. It is truly part of us, and we hope you will appreciate that when you stay.
After visiting this chain of Lakes for years while growing up and helping my grandfather with his place on Lake Buchanan for many years - I decided that the only way to go was constant level! The property only changes with the seasons - not the rainfall.
There are so many special things about this place - most lake houses are built right up on the water with a boat house to block your view. Many are right on the main lake (rough and noisy) or in the backwater (hot and smelly). Here you will have all the amenities and a fantastic view with unbelievable private water access. As one friend said to me when we were out there for the weekend (when I asked if he wanted to go somewhere) - 'Where would I go that is better than this!'
