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 Canyon Lake

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 overlooks 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.

Our family spent Christmas in the Hill Country. We enjoyed our time hiking and seeing area sights. The house is comfortable and well maintained. We would like to return again to enjoy some more hiking, biking and sightseeing.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The home was well maintained and stocked with everything needed for stay besides food. The rental process was easy and stress free. We had plenty of space for our group and space for more if needed. Convenient location within a short drive to the lake, Gruene, New Braunfels and San Marcos. The deer were all over and the kids enjoyed feeding deer and relaxing in their hammocks. We would definitely come again. Thank you

Excellent Loacation Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a family wedding at The Lodge at Bridal Veil Falls. It is the perfect location for us 20 minutes from family in Bulverde 30 minutes to San Marcos and New Braunfels and easy access to Canyon Lake Marina. Very peaceful, deer everywhere they almost walk up to the front door. Safe and secure backyard perfect for travel with our pets and miles of scenery in every direction to get out and walk. The house provides everything we need to relax including WIFI for work.

Will continue to come back!

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.
