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.

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!

Relaxing vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a large group of family and friends when my husband's brother got married, and had an absolutely marvelous time! The space was perfect for spending time together, but also for having some privacy when needed. We never felt like we were on top of each other despite being a big group. My favorite spot was the amazing, huge porch with rocking chairs to sit and enjoy the peace of setting! Highly recommended!

Wow! Dream Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a hidden gem this property is! Fantastic view, impeccably-maintained yard and land, insane number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and a huge pecan tree to top it all off! My family and I fell in love with this house as soon as we got there. You drive through a ranch-style gate labeled the "Farr Side" and it opens up into a stunning landscape. The main house has tall ceilings with tons of light and is decorated with Hill Country charm. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you could ask for to prepare a hearty meal. It also opens into the living-room, which made cheering for the Longhorns possible even while cooking! The MASSIVE porch has a table that can seat the whole family. It was perfect for a sunset dinner followed by ghost stories and a couple of cocktails. The smaller back house has two beds and two baths with a pool table, ping-pong table, couches, and TV! This room was great for the two couples with newborns in our family. But I could also see it being great for a "kids" house during a family reunion or get together. There is tons of open space for throwing a frisbee or football, a great horseshoe pit, and we had our bocci set, which was awesome to play on the sprawling yards! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is looking to get away with family or good friends. It is a great place to have a Texas Hill Country experience - beautiful grounds, comfortable and charming lodging, and a view straight out of a magazine! We cannot wait to go back!
