Why Rachel Trimble chose Lake Travis

We love this lake house because of the amount of people it can accomodate, while still having room to breathe. The multi-level house allows for fun and games on the lower level, cooking and chatting on the upper level, and tons of space to relax on the decks. Our family has enjoyed many special weekends here at Longhorn Lodge.

What makes this house unique

Incredible sunset views.

Privacy of being in a cove with no wake zone.

Immediate views and access to the massive parts of Lake Travis, with all the fun activity going on.

Enjoying a quiet cove while at the same time watching the skiers, wake boarders and surfers, tubers, and everyone else enjoy the main part of the lake.

Wonderful Days on the lake

  • 3 of 5

We did have a great time. The house is big but does not comfortable sleep 10-12. It has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms that are great but there are no pull out couches on main floor. A futon and pull out downstairs in an area that is a bit damp and musty. Kitchen is well supplied but the refrigerator doors and freezer were packed with food left from previous tenant or owner. The dock is great but know it's a long way up and down steep steps to reach the dock. View from decks is wonderful, and location on the lake is quieter and calmer than other parts of Lake Travis. We had wonderful days on the water.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the views and the quiet cove, as well as the house. There are indeed 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on the main floor. Downstairs, you will find a futon in the main area, a private bathroom, and pull out sofa in a private bedroom. Many guests appreciate having condiments such as ketchup, mustard, butter, etc. in the refrigerator, and we make sure to keep those items to a minimum, taking up only one small shelf in the refrigerator door.

Overall a beautiful property equipped with all you need!

  • 5 of 5

Great property and has all things you need to be perfectly comfortable during your stay. There is lots of deer roaming the neighborhood which is neat to see so close. The lake has a great marina where you can rent boats right around the corner from the house which had great service. The house has a great view and plenty of room. It is exactly as pictured on the sight. The only minor issue we had was the stairs down to the boat dock. If you have young kids and/or pets be prepared for a haul down the stairs to the lake. The stairs are metal with open back and missing a hand rail close to bottom, so as a parent with a 3 and 5 year old the stairs were sturdy but a little unnerving. Overall, a great place and will definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity.

An Undiscovered Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a small family reunion and had a great time. Everything was conveniently located from inside the house to outside on the lake. (Very close to the marina so we could rent lake toys, with easy access to the main channel of the lake.) The house was multi level so the kids could entertain themselves on the lower floor and adults were able to enjoy themselves on the upper floor. It also gave us access to multiple decks from shaded decks to open decks over looking the lake.

Beautiful home, great layout!

  • 4 of 5

My first impression when entering the home was WOW!! It was beautiful, spacious, great open multi-level layout. Loved the game area downstairs for kids to chill out while adults could visit upstairs. We had a boat so it was nice to have the boat dock so easily accessible to go out on the lake anytime we wanted. Took walks in the evening and saw tons of deer. The only areas I could see improvement was it took an entire day to cool the house down since the thermostats were set high before our arrival, did not cool to comfortable until around 10:00 that night. Would definitely stay there again!
