Overview

Lake LBJ House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms upstairs, bunk room downstairs, 3 full baths, sleeps 12

The Point Vacation Lake House offers spectacular open-water views of beautiful Lake LBJ. The Point has it all : 300 feet of waterfront on Lake LBJ, covered boat dock with electric lift for your boat, fishing pier, outdoor fire pit, covered deck and porch with incredible views of the lake, and a wonderful, clean, shallow swimming area.

'The Point' lake house gets its name from its location at the farthest point out on a peninsula on Lake LBJ, giving it one of the most beautiful lake views of any home in the area. If you are looking for the perfect lake house, you have just found it.

The Point underwent a massive remodel and upgrade in 2005. It sleeps 12 comfortably. Upstairs has three bedrooms, 2 full baths, living room, dining area, and kitchen upstairs. Downstairs has a large open room with 4 twin beds, one bunk bed, a living area, and Foosball table in addition to a full bath and utility room with washer and dryer. The enclosed garage has a ping pong table.

Guest Comments: 'AWESOME TIME! My family and friends had a wonderful experience this past weekend. You have a fantastic home with the accommodations I expect and want when out of town. Weather was great, fishing was good but most of all we just enjoyed each others company.' H.C. - Ft. Worth

'We really had a great time at the lake house. The house was great and the view exceeded our expectations. Our kids had a great time fishing and hanging out on the hammock. Our entire group was impressed with the home and it made the experience one to remember. We plan on coming back. You all have done a really nice job decorating and including all the comforts of home.' J. B. – Flower Mound

'We really enjoyed the house and hope to come back sometime in the future. The kids had a great time playing in the nice big yard and fishing – they caught 4 different kinds of fish from the piers! The bunk room was also very nice for them. We really liked the common areas in the house. The openness of the kitchen/dining/den leaves lots of room for everyone to visit without being crowded. And the kitchen was top-notch! The beds were comfy – everything was perfect!' S. P. – Houston

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was great. The whole family agreed it was our favorite. So nice to have everything so available, and not have to run to the store for everything. Kids and adults all had a good time. We all loved playing ping pong. We rented kayaks from "Just Yakin" and they delivered and picked them up. We enjoyed cooking and having most of our meals there, and really didn't want to leave for anything. We felt we had the best place on the lake. We all really appreciated having the opportunity to stay in such a beautiful, comfortable and peaceful place.

Great place for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Location provided an awesome view. Beautiful property with updated decor. Kitchen was very spacious, well stocked with dishes and cookware, and the bar and dining table provided ample seating. In addition, the seating on the deck was great for dining or relaxing....always a nice breeze! We especially enjoyed the large yard for playing outdoor games. Chaise lounges were nice for enjoying the sun on the dock, yet trees provided shade for those who preferred that. Great to have a lift available for our boat. Owner was very nice to work with and quick to provide answers to questions. Definitely top of our list for next vacation on the lake.

Life is better at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute perfect pre-summer stay with 7 family members at this jewel of a property. Great location, windows everywhere yet very private and peaceful, doesn't face west sun, cool breezes all around because the place was on the point of "The Point", the name of this area in Granite Shoals. We relaxed the week before Memorial weekend away and had the lake virtually to ourselves. Good boat slip and lots of side docking space. Wonderful decor, newly painted, fully supplied kitchen (do bring kitchen paper goods, spices for cooking, ice), comfy AC, two large outdoor dining tables facing the lake, ping pong and foosball. Only large bedroom was the master which had a super comfy king bed? The other rooms in the main part of the house were very small but comfy and shared the guest bath in the hall. Tons of single beds on the lower floor with a full bath and laundry room. 3 Tvs, wifi (somewhat sketchy). For any issues or questions Brian was a phone call away and very prompt to respond. We highly recommend this delightful property!

The first of many....

  • 5 of 5

The Thornton family would like to thank the Gaston family for allowing us to vacation in their home! The home was beautiful, roomy, comfortable and extremely relaxing! Everything you needed was at our fingertips! If you forgot something, no worries, HEB and Restaurants are right down the street. The scenery was gorgeous and we had some feathered friends to stop by and join in! We will definitely be returning if the home is kept available! God bless!

Thank you again!

Sincerely,

Heather 😉✌🏻️

Great Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

The property offers a beautiful view of the lake and offers enough room to sleep a large group. The boat house area offers comfortable lounge chairs and it was very nice to have the kayak and tubes available for use. The owner of the house is awesome to work with, he answered every question and was very accommodating. I will rent this property again, and again and hopefully again.

5 Stars from Ft. Worth

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation again this year with the family at The Point. Beautiful home, well maintained and perfect for big families. Kids love having their own separate space downstairs. Whether you just swim, boat all day, or just swing in a hammock, this is the place to be. We definitely plan to come back again next summer.

Lake LBJ is the largest constant level lake in Texas. This means you will always be right on the water's edge at The Point Vacation Lake House. Our home is located in the small town of Granite Shoals. There is a small country store and cafe just down the road for your convenience. You are only 7 miles from Historic Marble Falls. Marble Falls' Main Street is reminiscent of a bygone era with old thick stone buildings, antique shops, local restaurants and boutiques. All the modern conveniences like HEB grocery store, Wal-mart, famed Bluebonnet Cafe and many other restaurants. Rockhopper's Pizza & Golf and movie theater are here as well. Additional short scenic drives in the area take you to Kingsland, Inks Lake, Lake Buchanan, Lake Marble Falls, Longhorn Caverns, Camp Longhorn, Granite Beach Water Park, Sweet Berry Farms and 3 local wineries.

There are several acclaimed public and semi-private golf courses nearby including Horseshoe Bay, Legends, Delaware Springs, and Hidden Falls.
