About Chip

Growing up, our families spent several weeks every year with our cousins at our grandparent's waterfront homes. For my wife it was the Galveston shore, and for me it was the south branch of the Potomac in West Virginia.

Chip purchased this house in 2002

Why Chip chose Horseshoe Bay

We couldn't resist the opportunity this home gave us to one day provide the same memories for our family. Renting our home for family reunions is always extra special for us. We know we're helping create memories for your family, just like the memories which led us to buy this property!

What makes this house unique

Texas lake and river shores are often left dry as they battle the local climate. This home is on the shore of one of the very few constant level lakes in Texas, Lake LBJ. The Lower Colorado River Authority manages the dams along the Colorado River to keep this lake level constant year-round.

Another benefit of our location is the LCRA preservation land opposite us on our cove. It delivers a great view of water and preservation land from the back patio and decks, with common sightings of the hill-country wildlife that calls this preservation land home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just love it here at the lake house and are impressed with all the rooms and beds to accommodate our large group of family and friends. Appreciate all the extra's (towels, cleaning products, pots & pans, even a blender) that we have available for our use. We had a backyard BBQ and has a blast!!! Thanks for your accommodations and the perfect getaway.

Very accommodating for large groups

  • 4 of 5

Great quiet spot right off the lake. There is plenty of outside seating and you can hang out away from bedrooms if someone wants to nap. One downfall was that we ended up using the neighbors' doc because there was no ladder from which to get out of the water. Beds were all super comfortable! We went for july 4th and could see the fireworks from the top balcony. I love the large family room on the bottom level, would be great if there was a small fridge there too. I would stay here again.

Peaceful spot for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Horseshoe Hideaway. My wife, daughter, and I caught perch and catfish off the back patio in the evenings and enjoyed all of the deer and other wildlife in the cove. The house was very comfortable and with the multiple levels some of us were able to enjoy quiet naps while others watched the big screen tv on the bottom level without disturbing anyone. This property is tucked back in a nice peaceful cove, so there was very little boat traffic. The lake opens up just a couple hundred yards away which made easy access to and from the lake. We couldn't have picked a better spot for our 2016 family summer vacation.

4th of July

  • 5 of 5

4th of July 2015 ... Thank you we had a great time we pulled off a surprise wedding really shocked a lot of people. It was beautiful. My son and daughter in law got married on the boat dock, The only sad part was the wedding band got dropped in between the boards and straight into the water, we search for along time but ring was never found.

Great space for our girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Chip was very helpful when we had questions and the home was great for our weekend getaway. Awesome spot if you have a boat, kayaks, paddle boards, etc. to take to the open lake area. The house itself is set back in a cove which is nice so you don't have as much traffic on the water.

The resort community of Horseshoe Bay is located on the southern-most shores of beautiful constant-level Lake LBJ, deep in the heart of rustic central Texas hill country. The immediate area offers all the trappings of a lake resort community, including several highly-acclaimed golf courses. The small towns of the Texas Hill Country are known for their charming wineries, berry and peach farms, antique shops, German bakeries, beer gardens, and Texas BBQ joints. In the spring, the hill country landscape is blanketed in wildflowers. In the summer and fall, the towns have their local art & music festivals, chili cook-offs, and of course the annual dragboat race in downtown Marble Falls.

Other Activities: napping in hammock, watching wildlife
