Guestbook comments from the owner
It was great! We went to Fredricksburg and to the Bell Winery. It is beautiful there and you were right about the drive. Thank you so much for letting us borrow your home. I hope we left everything the way you liked. If we ever make it back that way we will definitely be in contact! (I bought 6 bottles of wine on this trip). :)

A GREAT PLACE FOR SPENDING TIME WITH FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
We had so much fun on our week in the Kingsland House! The Stevens family was so friendly and helpful. There was more than enough room at the house for our family of six to spread out without feeling crammed together and it was setup perfectly for entertaining too. It was so cute (our kids loved the big fish lol), clean and the beds were comfy.The view is fabulous! You are able to see it from every room on the back side of the house even the masterbedroom so I was able to wake up to water & mountains everyday. My bookworms fell in love with all the books available and enjoyed playing some of the many board games too. We spent quite a bit of time on the island playing in the sand and swimming. The depth of the water there was perfect for our kids (age 13-4) to swim. It made us feel very at ease. The mornings and evenings were very peaceful. It really felt like you were somewhere more secluded instead of in a residential area. My daughter even walked out front one night to find 5 deer grazing in the lot across the street :) All in all we had a wonderful relaxing time and hopefully we will go back one day.

RELAXING FAMILY CELEBRATION

  • 4 of 5
We celebrated my Dad's 63rd birthday, my parents' 40th wedding anniversary, and Father's Day at this relaxing and comfortable home. Upon arrival, the owner Scott gave me a quick tour of the home. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful stained concrete floors. There is plenty of seating in the multiple living areas including the sun room. The kitchen is a little dated, but had all the appliances and supplies we needed such as a blender, muffin pan, gallon iced tea pitcher, etc. LED under cabinet lighting came in handy too.There was plenty of space for 8 people to sleep, with room for maybe 2-4 more. Ceiling fans throughout the house and great views of the river and private island. We also enjoyed the nautical décor of the house with a stunning blue marlin replica hanging from one wall and blown glass light fixtures above the bar that gave a serene sea green glow to the room. My only suggestion (and Scott was very open to suggestions for improvement) was to provide a golf cart for the 55+ folks who might have a hard time climbing up and down the hill from the house to the river and some outdoor lighting by the boatslip or for the backyard. Overall, we all enjoyed this cozy home and its awesome location on the river.

AWESOME LAKE HOUSE FAMILY FUN

  • 5 of 5
Our two families with kids had a wonderful long weekend at the house. The house has everything you could possibly need. Everything. Just show up with food and swimsuits and you are ready to go. Brilliant keeping the concrete floors throughout the house as it is so easy to maintain and keep clean. The island was perfect for the kids and the gentle slope on the far side let them play and splash for hours.

The owner called to check on us to make sure we had everything we needed, or if he could help any way. With his cell phone number and great communication we had great peace of mind in case something happened. You couldn’t ask for more.

We would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a Lake LBJ weekend with protected water to tube/ski and for kids to play safely.

GREAT FOR KIDS

  • 4 of 5
We recently stayed here and our 1 and 3 year olds had a blast on the pontoon boat and the little island. It was like being at the beach. We enjoyed the sunroom with great views and the porch for our BBQ. Owners are great and the view of the mountains was beautiful and relaxing. The oven took awhile to heat up but overall it was a great place for 8 to sleep with nice quiet water access. The sandbar extends a long way so its perfect and safe for the kids to have a blast.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice comments. Our kids also consider the island's shallow sandbar beach best for their swimming, while the channel at our dock area is deep for driving boats and adults jumping in. Glad you took advantage of the grills and appliances to prepare meals -- yes, the oven warms slowly and can cook a turkey.

TOO GOOD--KEEP IT A SECRET!

  • 5 of 5
These kinds of reviews are always difficult. We had an amazing time and want everyone to know, but want it to stay a secret so it's always available to us! Water Mountain Retreat was the perfect weekend getaway. Our only regret was that we only had it for the weekend! Next we're booking for at least a week!

The house is gorgeous and spacious; the common areas are much airier and brighter than the pictures suggest. The kitchen had everything we could need and more to make for relaxing and stress-free mealtimes--more than enough dishes and silverware, pots and pans, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, oven/stove, blender, toaster... yeah. There was no loss of comfort. We basically just had to bring the food we wanted to eat. Lots of books and magazines around the house if you didn't bring your own and/or want something new to take in. We pulled out the stars and constellations guidebook more than once before heading out to stargaze.

The channel was perfect for the stand-up paddleboard we brought and general swimming. Gentle current and smooth sandy bottom. Tip: if you're visiting with shorties/kids/etc who like to keep their feet planted and head above water, use the ferry to cross to the island. The far shore of the island has a very gently sloping and shallow beach perfect for swimmers and waders alike. At night, we star-gazed and enjoyed the evening breeze. We roasted s'mores around a campfire on the island (there's a fire pit, but be sure to bring wood/starters). The screened-in porch is perfect for sitting, eating, and board games in the breeze. All-in-all, a magical weekend.

Scott was a perfect host. He emailed a week before our reservation to check with us and answer any questions we had before going. We had his cell number to call or text with any questions or problems over the weekend--we never had to use it. It definitely gave a peace of mind knowing we had it, though. And he called once to check in that everything was going fine.

FAMILY OF 6

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at this lake house! The accommodations were clean, comfortable and spacious for our large family. The home was well-stocked with everything we needed and was conveniently located to grocery shopping, church and restaurants. Our family loved fishing and playing on the island! The owner was friendly and helpful throughout. We will stay here again!

Enjoy the panoramic view of the lake, land, and Packsaddle Mountains from wall-to-wall windows in nearly every room.
