About the property

3 BR, 2 bath-0pen/spacious living/kithchen, 480sf porch w/lake view

We have an open kitchen/dining/living area. the kitchen is separated from the other areas by a large rounded bar that seats 8 to 10 with a TV to entertain while feasting or to watch sporting events. A separate TV is in the living area as well. The master bedroom is on one side of the house, separated from the other 2 bedrooms by the living areas. Both bedroom sides have separate air conditioners for individual comfort. Fans in each bedroom is an added amenity.

The back porch is 12' X 40' and overlooks the Lake and the BBQ area below. Deer frequent the grounds. A couple of foxes also visit from time-to-time. The fox are beautiful to watch. While we do not recommend feeding the fox, corn is provided to feed the deer.

Our waterfront home enables boating, swimming, kayaking, fishing or simply skimming rocks across the lake. Boat launch is less than a one mile drive or 15 minute walk from the house. A short 10-minute drive takes you to Crane's Mill Marina where boat slips can be rented on a daily basis and motor/pontoon/sail boat and jet-ski rentals are available. The same marina is a 3 to 5 minute boat ride across the Lake from our home. The Guadalupe Horseshoe is only a 15-minute drive; the same distance accesses flyfishing below the dam. Awesome shopping is available in Wimberley, Bourne, Gruene, Fredricksbrg, the outlet malls in San Marcos and, of course, shopping in Austin and San Antonio--all can be reached within 30 to 60 minutes (Fredricksberg is more in line with to 80 minutes). Gruene offers live music nightly (summer) and weekends (rest of year). Restaurants abound in these areas or you may prefer a simple home-delivered pizza from Startzville.

If you have trouble booking the dates you want, please contact us at 713-557-7854 for assistance with your booking. We may have alternative options for you.

Our home is excellent to hold events or for intimate single family gatherings. The Grounds contain 2 homes that can be separately rented, with a vacant lot between, giving lots of room to accommodate an event (i.e., wedding, family reunion, corporate break-out); the two homes together will sleep 12 to 16. Call for information, if interested.

The home was lovely! Awesome view of the lake. Great kitchen/family area.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the porch and lake view. The home was nice and clean with lots of little touches and small amenities including m&ms, corn for the deer, spices, condiments, s'more fixings, and more that are not always included. We all enjoyed feeding the deer, which came right up to the porch and ate out of our hands.

very nice

  • 4 of 5

This place has a great kitchen for entertaining lots of people and preparing meals. View from the back porch is great and there's also plenty of deer and a Silver back Fox for entertainment. The stairs down to the lake is a bit challenging and the beach is very rocky but we still managed to play in the water and catch fish. There is a Boat landing close by which was a big plus for us.

Comfy home, beautiful view and easy access to lake

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed the weekend on the lake. Home set up was perfect for our family, easy access to boat ramp. Wish we had a way to dock boat near house so we didn't have to load and unload boat each time we went out. But overall was great.

Thank you

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, to enjoy beautiful Canyon Lake from a boat on the lake requires daily launches of the boat, unless a dock slip is rented from the marina. The Lake Authority does not allow any private docks. We would really love to have one if they were allowed, however!

LOVE this place

  • 5 of 5

This is at least the second time we rented this property. The views of the sunset and beautiful deer and other wildlife, the awesome balcony, and access to the lake are amazing. The upgraded kitchen is beautiful as well. I highly recommend this place.
