About Carole Belver

We discovered Canyon Lake over 20 years ago and visit there often. It is extremely relaxing and quiet. When we had the opportunity to purchase this home we decided that we wanted to share it with others. It is important to us that our house is clean, comfortable and inviting. We are not a chain and we own and manage our house ourselves. Because we love our dogs and sometimes find it difficult to rent places that would accept pets we decided to allow pets to vacation with their owners. We have a completely fenced in backyard. We are laid back and strive to make this your home away from home.

Carole Belver purchased this house in 2009

Why Carole Belver chose Texas Hill Country

It's clean, comfortable and is convenient to Canyon Lake and Guadalupe, Comal and San Marcos rivers. We are only minutes from Blanco, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Wimberley, San Antonio, and Austin. It is the perfect hub for day trips. And don't forget to visit one of the largest Outlet Malls in San Marcos.

What makes this house unique

Our front porch with its rocking chairs overlook the lake. Deer walk up to the porch and mooch for treats. They love corn tortillas and melons. Listen to the birds and enjoy the quiet serenity of the lake. Sometimes we have a neighborhood peacock that likes to visit...

The house is very private and is located on a street that does not have hardly any traffic. The house sits on a hill, without any obstructions to block your view.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We try very hard to make everyone's time at our house enjoyable. Our rent's are very reasonable, especially if you bring your pooch....as you don't have to pay boarding fees.... Come and see why once people find us they come again and again. We are family owned and operated and that makes the difference, as we keep the house like we would want to stay there....Come check us out....we still have dates in August and September.

A Piece of Heaven in Canyon Lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (plus our little dog, Daisy) stayed in this beautiful home for 3 days in April, 2016 - and we LOVED it! This home is so beautiful, comfortable and inviting that we hated to leave. The deer practically walked up on the front porch every morning looking for food. This was such a relaxing 3 days that we will definitely return! You MUST see it to appreciate the beauty of this home & the surroundings. We took walks every morning and evening and were blown away by the views of the lake and deer. You can literally WALK to the lake. The house was very clean, and the beds were very comfortable! A short drive to the grocery store & restaurants down hwy 306. Perfect home in Canyon Lake for a really relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind appraisal. We work hard to make sure that the house is clean and comfortable. With all the rain we have been having the lake is full and everything is green. The deer will soon start to have their babies and they are always a treat to see. Since we allow well behaved animals the rent is really a great bargain....why not rent a house with all the extras and bring your pooch and not spend $50-$75 extra per night boarding them, when they can have fun too? We hope to see you soon.

Wonderful house on the most beautiful lake in Tx

  • 5 of 5

The pics of this house do not do it justice. It is lovely, with a great lake view. The deer stop by for breakfast, or just to say hello- they are very friendly. The setting is very peaceful and quiet. We saw less than a handful of cars the 2 days we were there.

The house is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Everything you could need is supplied. I loved having a fenced in yard to let my dogs out. Everyone loved the outdoor shower, too!

We enjoyed the front porch for coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. There is even a winery a few houses down.

We enjoyed our stay very much and plan to stay again in a couple of months, and are also thinking of coming again in cooler weather.

Perfect Canyon Lake Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

To say that the house was welcoming, warm and perfect would be an understatement. This house had everything you would need and more! It is only made even more perfect by the fact that they allow you to bring your pets!!!

The house was immaculate and full of charm. The bedrooms more than spacious and the living/dining space perfect for hanging out, playing board games, or just lounging after a day at the lake. The kitchen had everything that you could imagine. The front porch was amazing with a perfect view of the lake. Oh and yes, the deer...our friends who quickly realized our patterns of when we were there, would come and eat right out of our hands. The kids loved it, and our dog Miss Bailey loved watching them from the front windows.

Thank you again for making our vacation a memorable one, and one that we had one less thing to think about when we walked into the house. It provided everything that we could have needed on this trip.

We will be coming back each summer and plan on staying at the house again!

Thank you to Carole and Troy - you are the best.

Enjoy the lake everyone!

Owner's Response: Our Renters Are the BEST! We enjoy providing a clean, welcoming home away from home. Just pack your ice chests with food and beverages and a few clothes and leave the rest to us. Once you get here all you need to think about is how long to stay on the front porch and rock. At Belver Canyon Lake Retreats, pets are family too!

Great location, pet-friendly and wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month and had a wonderful time. Our son did not want to travel without his dog and both the house and the back yard made this the perfect location. The home is very peaceful with a private, fenced back yard and includes everything that you will need for a wonderful vacation or business trip (our situation). This is a great value and you won’t find better hosts than Carole and Troy.

Wonderful weekend get away!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. Clean, spacious, quiet, and close to the lake. It was absolutely perfect. And couldn't ask for anything better for the price. In fact, once we got there and saw how big and beautiful, I had to double check the price to make sure I read it right. You get so much more than you pay for at this vacation rental. Loved it and plan on visiting again.
