Why Sarah Farr chose Lake LBJ

Farr Side is located of four acres in the Texas Hill Country with 250 feet of Lake Travis waterfront. Located at the far west end of Lake Travis, you will see beautiful shorelines, abundant wildlife, and few boats. You will have little competition for smooth water. Bring your own gas though. There are no nearby marinas. You will have room for outdoor games and places to be alone. Large rooms with high ceilings add to the spacious feeling even when the weather outside is not so good. Large trees cool the property even in the heat of the summer.

What makes this house unique

Farr Side is located 2 miles down a dead end county road, an hour or so west of Austin. There are a few other properties on large lots on the county road. There is a large hill country ranch on one side of the county road as you drive in to Farr Side. Many days you may see one of several species of exotic game on the ranch. There is a county park with a boat ramp a quarter mile from Farr Side. Farr Side is only 8 miles from Marble Falls which has several good restaurants, including the well known Bluebonnet Cafe.

Perfect lakeside property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Farr Side. The two houses were perfect for our large multi-family group. They matched the description and were very clean. We all felt like we had plenty of room to care for our families while playing and catching up with friends we rarely get to see. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking to enjoy some time away with family and/or friends.

The kids and adults really enjoyed playing pool, ping-pong and even horse-shoes! It was really nice that the kids could go into the second house to watch movies while it rained.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a multi-family weekend vacation spot and this was perfect! Enough room for the kids to roam, go fishing, play pool, games and even watch a movie when it rained. And we adults loved sitting on the back porch after the kids went to bed. There were plenty of bathrooms for each family to have some privacy. Everything was clean, comfortable and well taken care of. We want to make it an annual trip!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! Seriously. A few buddies and I took a little getaway over the weekend, and everyone loved it. Plenty of room, nice and clean, lots to do (fishing, pool table, patio, grill...). It won't be a weekend anyone of us will soon forget. I'd recommend this spot to anyone.

Relaxing and lovely compound

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful getaway for groups - it is able to accommodate a large number of guests while still providing plenty of privacy, space and feeling of relaxation for all guests. Accommodations are comfortable, cozy, clean and peaceful.

We loved the outdoor space, with options from hammocks to porches to lakeside seating. It gave us a great weekend and we would highly recommend it.

Tons to Do

  • 5 of 5

This is such an incredible place to get away for a weekend or longer. The living accommodations are great but the outdoor activities provided are fantastic. Activities on the river, bon-fires and horseshoes are just a few. The back porch offers a great place to congregate and enjoy the scenery. I have gone to this same place quite a few times always with friends and we always come back with great stories.

Great getaway in the Hill Country!

  • 5 of 5

The Farr Side was perfect for our group of friends and family! The property is beautiful and private, with large amounts of outdoor space to enjoy. Between the two houses there is great community space to spend time as a group, including two large patios that are perfect to enjoy the hill country. The house feels "just like home" with all the amenities you need including fully stocked utensil drawers & cabinets in the kitchen. I definitely plan to come back to the Farr Side!
