About Linda Peterson

We live an hour away between Jonestown and Cedar Park across from Lake Travis. I lived in the area as a child, but my spouse is a transplant from the beautiful Lake Michigan area. I guess you'd call us lake people. We have seven grandchildren, but only two are local. The others are in Raleigh, NC. We also have three small Shih Tzu dogs that love the lake area as much as we do.

Linda Peterson purchased this house in 2007

Why Linda Peterson chose Granite Shoals

We previously had a smaller rental on Lake Travis, but sold it because water levels fluctuated so much. Lake LBJ is referred to a constant-level lake, so boating is never hampered by low water. The area is a quiet, congenial, slow-paced kind of place where folks wave as they drive by even if they don't know you.

What makes this house unique

There is a lot of wildlife wandering around - prized plants are a favorite of the local deer population. We had a very small fawn take up residence in the shady plants of our tree round in front of the house. We named this place for the two peacocks who liked to wander our property. Unfortunately, all peacocks had to be removed. Butterflies, song birds, and millions of stars on quiet nights all add up to a wonderful place to rest and relax. There are 19 parks in this city of 5,000 - one around every corner.

We absolutely loved our stay! The house was perfect - Linda was responsive and the weekend was a fabulous hit with our family. It was hard to leave.

Great stay for our family of 8!

  • 4 of 5

Our family gathered here to celebrate a milestone birthday and an early Christmas. We stayed 4 nights/4 days. I'm happy to say, we had a blast and a very comfortable stay. This house is definitely set up nicely for a large group -- plenty of beds/bedrooms; plenty of seating inside and out; and a generous provision of supplies, necessities, and equipment for cooking and having fun (including 2 kayaks and games of all sorts). I loved the view of the lake and big trees out the large picture windows and from the deck on the lake side of the house. The house itself is situated in a serene environment and a quiet neighborhood where families of deer feel comfortable roaming about. We saw them every day...sometimes several times a day (what a joy!). The TV(s), WiFi, W/D, hot tub, propane BBQ grill, kitchen appliances, and all electronics provided were in good condition and worked well throughout our stay which made our stay truly enjoyable and comfortable. Check in and check out was a breeze. The owner was very responsive via text messages. There are two parks (both on the lake) within a short walk from the house, a mini market/gas station within a 5 minute drive, and a large H-E-B grocery store within a 15-20 minute drive. Overall great location! Note to future guests: the downstairs master suite is very nice but it sits right below the kitchen. There will be noise for those who go to bed early. The upstairs bedrooms (x3) are right off the living room upstairs which is A-OK but there will be some noise there too. Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. The house is a little run down but not enough to be a detriment. The furnishings and beds are all very comfortable and in good repair. The owners provide a genorous amount of linens so there is no need to worry about bringing extra (other than towels for outdoor use which they request you bring and use).

Wonderful family weekend at Peacock House in Granite Shoals

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Peacock House over Labor Day weekend. The house was located on a quiet inlet of Lake LBJ and the owners are amazing hosts - they supplied so many extras that made our weekend really easy and carefree. Many kitchen extras such as coffee, sugar, condiments, spices, cooking oil, paper products, and cooking utensils, pots, pans, tupperware of all sorts - and the grill was pristine! They also supplied lots of towels and bath/shower products so we didn't need to pack and bring so much stuff for a weekend.

We enjoyed the kayaks provided at the house and had a lot of fun playing foosball. Three big TVs, board games, hot tub and lots of great magazines provided lots to do indoors. The house was very clean, well stocked, well labeled so things were easy to find and lots of directions on how to operate TV, etc made our stay so enjoyable. One day we took a short drive out to Longhorn Cavern State Park and had an amazing tour of the cavern. We enjoyed it all very much. Thank you so much! We would highly recommend the Peacock House for a relaxing family vacation.

The Peacock House has everything you need to get away! All you need is your food and clothes!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVE staying at the Peacock House. Linda is amazing to work with and makes you feel like a friend from the very beginning. The house has plenty of EVERYTHING. All we need to bring with us is our clothes and Food. We love that we are on the water and have use of two Kayaks. We are able to dock our jet skis or boat just feet from the house!! I have scheduled our getaways around the times this house is available, and will continue to do so. The Card table and Foosball table are always a plus and a great way to end the day playing games as a family! We will see you soon Linda!!!

Family vacation & birthday celebration!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, our two daughters, two sons-in-law and two grandchildren needed a get-away vacation at the lake to celebrate three birthdays, relax and enjoy ourselves. The Peacock House was a perfect venue offering privacy in the master downstairs suite while the upstairs was perfect for kids, grandkids, meals, and entertainment. The home provided us all the amenities we needed, other than our food, beach towels and sun screen. Fishing was great from the dock and the friendly deer roaming the neighborhood was a treat. The home's proximity to shopping and boat rentals was most convenient. We departed refreshed, relaxed and tan with fond memories of our week in Granite Shoals. Linda was extremely helpful throughout the preliminary scheduling and offered much assistance on inquiries.
