Overview

About the property

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.

NOTE: THERE IS NOT AN INTERNAL STAIRWAY BETWEEN THE UPSTAIRS AND DOWNSTAIRS. THE STAIRWAY IS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND ESPECIALLY IF YOU WILL HAVE YOUNG CHILDREN STAYING IN THE DOWNSTAIRS BUNK ROOM AREA.

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.

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.

Awesome house, with great accomodations and access to the lake

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a girlfriends weekend for the second year. It is a great house with amazing views of the lake. The kitchen is well equipped, and the accomodations are comfortable. The owners are great to deal with and I would definitely recommend it for a girlfriends weekend, a family get together or any other occasion.

Beautiful location and plenty of room

  • 3 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at The Point. The location is incredible and the size and layout are perfect for our family of 12. However, the decreasing level of cleanliness and upkeep have us searching for another paradise for next year's trip. Aging, disintegrating linens, kitchen cabinetry cleanliness and an unclear view of the beautiful lake through the rain and bug-smeared windows put a damper on this year's stay. Some attention to the property would put it right back up there among the best!

Beautiful home at a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Just spend a relaxing weekend at this wonderful home where every detail has been well thought out. Location on the point meant unobstructed views of the water. One of our group watched the sunrise from her bed on the first floor and we all caught the sunset from the dock. We didn’t want to leave and had a perfect weekend.

Unreal Views and Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

One would be hard pressed to find anything negative to say about this place. It was fantastic. One thing I will mention is that the downstairs bunk room is not accessible to the upstairs without going outside. This ended up working out ok for us as we had a single adult that didn't mind sleeping downstairs with the kids; however, it would have been a challenge otherwise as my two daughters (8 & 11) would not have liked being "locked in" their space and "locked out" of ours.

EVERYTHING else was better than advertised!!

Lovely home on Lake LBJ

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home. The sleeping arrangements with three bedrooms upstairs and the bunk room downstairs with separate shower, two sinks and large vanity were awesome for our group. The kitchen was well stocked and we found everything easily. We had plenty of space for everyone to cook and eat together. We enjoyed the outdoors and the swimming areas around the house. The decks and the hammocks were an additional bonus. We were happy we brought our large, outdoor shop fan on the couple of days when the temperatures were high and the breeze faded. Afternoons and evenings were particularly nice outside. I recommend this property for family or other groups who need space to be together as well as separate!
