Marble Falls House Rental Photos and Description

House, 10 Bedrooms + Loft, 10+ Baths, (Sleeps 32-36)

This spectacular vacation compound on Lake Travis is ideal for groups of families, friends or business associates. The compound consists of two adjacent properties, Moriah and Farr Side, which have houses approximately 50 yards apart.

The first property, Moriah, offers a huge timber-frame building for central living, dining and a gourmet kitchen designed for multiple cooks while two authentic 1850's log cabins provide four private bedrooms. Each of the three historic buildings which make up Moriah have a porch with a lake view.

Moriah has been meticulously restored into a private retreat in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Moriah has been featured in the Austin American Statesman, Country Home Magazine and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The second property, Farr Side, consists of two large buildings. One has three bedrooms, a sleeping loft, two full bathrooms, a living area, a large kitchen and sleeps twelve. A huge, inviting porch offers a view of the lake. The second building consists of two very large bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a massive living area complete with a pool table, game table and a sitting area with satellite television. A second porch offers a sitting area and ping pong table.

Both Moriah and Farr Side have a private dock and stunning views of the lake, combined they have 500 feet of private waterfront. A gentle slope leads to the water, only 240 feet from the houses.

Together, the two properties sit on seven secluded acres in the Texas Hill Country on Lake Travis located only eight miles from Marble Falls.

Perfect spot for a large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 23 had a fabulous reunion at this property. It is the best of both worlds, there are places where everyone can be together, but there is also enough room for people to have their own space. There really is something for everyone, no matter their age. There is volleyball, ping pong, foosball, and billiards. You can also just relax in a hammock in the yard or in a rocking chair on the porch. We brought our boat and were able to launch it just up the road and dock it at the house. The houses are fully stocked with anything you could possibly need or want during your stay. The property and buildings are very well maintained. Nancy is an absolute pleasure to work with. We cannot recommend this property enough.

First Class...

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family reunion.With 23 Adults and 6 Children we all had comfortable accommodations with plenty of space. The main lodge at Moriah was perfect to gather for meals and to hang out. The Lake was great for fishing and swimming and there was plenty of tree cover to enjoy being outside even during the heat of the day. I would recommend this compound for any large family or friendly gatherings.

It was perfect for our family!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

This was out third year to stay at Moriah/Farr Side. For the last 25 years my family, then only me, my husband, 5 daughters, 5 sons in law, 8 grandchildren, have gone somewhere for a week...We now number 30 counting my first great grand. And this has bee a perfect retreat for us. The water level this summer could not have been better; there was a float every afternoon.

I would recommend these properties to one and all. Very clean and well provisioned. The owners are a joy to work with.

Amazing property with tons of space for a big group

  • 5 of 5

Everything worked perfectly for us. Check in was easy and the owners were very responsive to any questions we had. The property is gorgeous and was a great fit for our group. I'd recommend this place to anyone who has a big group that wants to be in a single location.

Awesome family reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion at the compound last weekend and had an amazing time! The compound is spacious, clean and was everything we had hoped. We fished from the dock, went to Krausse Springs, and spent half day in Austin. Marble Falls is close enough for trips to the grocery store. I highly recommend this compound for large groups. Warnings: don't try to find it at night. The roads are dark, winding, narrow, etc. No wifi. Poor cellular signal. But that was a good thing as the kids had to put down their phones and actually talk to everyone!

Owner's Response: We're happy to hear that this family reunion was such a success. Though they seemed happy to put down their cell phones, many people achieve wifi on our property by setting up their phones as personal hotspots. Many companies have had successful business meetings on our property creating wifi hotspots in this way. This works with ATT and Verizon and perhaps others though I haven't personally experienced them. They are correct that it is quite dark at night since we are located in the country and there are not street lights. However, this has the advantage of allowing you to enjoy the stars in a way that is never possible in a city full of ambient light.
