Great Fun!

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was great and we had everything we needed. The access to the lake was a short walk and was no issue at all. Our grandsons had a wonderful time swimming, fishing and enjoying the play ground area The only issue we had, was the condition of the yard as it was full of stickers which kept the kids from being able to play in the yard area. All in all a great experience and one I would recommend for others!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you had a good time. Sorry about the stickers. We have been under drought conditions for 7.5 years. The yard kind of got away from us. The water company put watering restrictions on us that would not us allowed us to water. It's hard to grow grass without water and stickers love dry yards. Hope to see you again in the future. Yall were great tenants. Dave

Very comfortable and accomodating

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation here. Fishing was great. Dave was a wonderful host. He even came to me and my 3 children's rescue when we were out fishing in the boat and I got a fishing lure stuck in my finger and gave us a ride to the EMS station at the entrance to the neighborhood. I would recommend this house for anyone's vacation. We will definately be back. Thanks for a great stay Dave!

With the water up this year, we are having a great year. Hope it continues with the rains. Other tenants say that the fishing is great this year. Don't be a stranger. Let us hear from you. Thanks Dave

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our quick family getaway trip to the Lakeview House was very relaxing. Settled into a quiet neighborhood with direct access to the water was such a treat! The house itself is clean and spacious and accommodated our group nicely. Thank you Dave, we had a great time!

Beautiful and peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Lakeview House is a lovely getaway from the city. We were in the area for the Austin Spartan race and the house was only a short drive away. Dave provided us with great customer service right from the start. Dave popped by when we first arrived and gave us a tour of the area including a trip down to the lake. When one of us had car trouble Dave provided us with the tools necessary to fix the problem. The Lakeview House comfortably slept ten of us and two dogs with room to spare!!! It was clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend The Lakeview House to any families or groups of friends wanting to getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city! Meg N.

Owner's Response: This group of friends really had it together. Only wish I could be that healthy. They were very respectful of my property and me and are welcome back any time. I know what it's like to have a broke down vehicle when you are away from home, so loaning them tools to fix car is a no brainer. Hope to see them for next years race.

Very Accomdating

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Dave was super friendly and accommodating. We brought a group from our CrossFit gym up for the Spartan Race. It was perfect for our needs and real close to our race site. They delayed our race time on Sunday which made us late for check out. Dave was understanding and worked with us. You get pretty darn dirty from a Spartan and since we were racing home to get out of the house unfortunately I think we drug in the spartan course with us. Plus it was rainy and drizzly that day and made for extra mud. Hopefully Dave will have us back. I am sure we will have more that want to participate. I would recommend this house. The area by the water is very peaceful and quiet, very relaxing.

Owner's Response: These were great tenants. This group brought us rain, for that we are very grateful. The mud was not a problem, actually didn't remember there being mud. They were very respectful of my property and courteous to me. This group is always welcome at our home. Hope to see them back again.

While Lake Buchanan is low there are miles of trails for trail riding. Be sure to bring your 4 wheelers. The lake is still very large but now we have lots of land to explore around the lake.

We are also open for longer term rental for snow birds in the winter. This is the perfect place for snow birds to get out of northern part of the country and enjoy warmer temperatures and the highland lakes area. Call for special rates for long term rental.
