About the property

Waterfront multi-family home with 5 bedrooms, 4 FULL bathrooms, sleeps 25 people

This vacation oasis sits on over an acre with large oak, pecan and pine trees and its own private sandy beach. From the beach and the home's large upper and lower decks, you view seven miles of open water and the distant hills and bluffs.

Newly remodeled, this home is on the shore of Lake Buchanan, the uncrowded jewel of the Texas Hill Country. Fish and explore with the canoes provided or bring your own boat.

This 3300 square foot southwestern casual vacation home has five bedrooms, three of which are master suites. The home easily sleeps 25. The spacious kitchen has all new appliances and everything you'll need for large family gatherings. Dining can be indoors, on the large decks, or at picnic tables under the large shade trees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a family reunion here and it was perfect! The house is very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. We all had our own separate bedrooms for privacy but there was a lot of space to gather together for meals, for visiting and games. The kids loved the large private yard and beach. We have already reserved for next year! Thank you for the great hospitality!!

Gorgeous property !

  • 5 of 5

This property was truly amazing, perfect for our family of 25! Great location with sandy access to the lake, the basketball goal and volleyball set up was great along with horseshoes, bean bag toss, etc., perfect for entertaining a bunch of teenagers! This was a perfect getaway! The owner came by to say hello and kept in contact in case we needed anything. Highly recommend this place! We will for sure be back next year!

The property was beautiful & just what a large family needs to spread out & have fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time for our family vacation with 4 generations. There was plenty to do for all from paddle boarding to relaxing under a large shade tree to great fishing to splashing in the water. There was something for everyone. Gwen & Brian were very helpful with any need or question arose. We will vacation here again!

Highly recommend this house !

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for a weekend trip for 5 families.

Enough beds for over 25 people. All rooms were very spacious and clean. Huge yard with nice trees. Kids enjoyed swimming in the lake as well as playing basketball and volleyball.

Owners stopped by to make sure everything was in order. All questions over phone/Text were promptly answered.

Will recommend this property.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Bryan and Gwen you are the best hosts I have ever had the privilege of working with, you were attentive to every need or concern. There were 7 kids and 17 adults for a family reunion , we had plenty of room, and plenty to do for everyone! The house is very spread out so you don't feel like your on top of each other, the decoration is very nice, and its was very clean, and comfortable! We enjoyed ourselves so much! That we booked another to return.

Thanks so much to Bryan and Gwen we are looking forward to seeing you in the future.

Sincerely

The Newsome Family
