We wanted to take the kids and grandkids on a close by couple of days during spring break and decided on Lake Livingston. We have a state park pass and like Lake Livingston State Park. This house is within about a 20 - 30 minute ride from the park. Everything in the house was great. The owners make sure that there are all the needed items for a stay. We did bring or buy some items to try to replenish some that we used but that was not expected. The grandkids completely enjoyed watching the deer each evening as they wander through and near the yard of the house. We did a "snipe" hunt for a friend of one of the grandsons (grandkids have all been on snipe hunts in the past) and he was, we will just say, excited. He and all of us enjoyed the festivity of it. We walked through the neighborhood and down to the nearby park. Drove down and fished at the marina two evenings. Caught a few 4 - 5 inch long catfish but you would think they were 10 foot long sharks by the reaction of the kids. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and the owners are outstanding people and want to hear from the renters, good or bad. We usually choose different places for our get togethers, but if we do go back to Lake Livingston we will definitely use this place again.
