About the property

Large Lot With Gorgeous 3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath House (Comfortably Sleeps 8)

If you're looking for a private weekend escape or a vacation destination for your entire family, this new 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home on Inks Lake is a perfect getaway. Inks Lake, nestled in between Burnet and Llano in the beautiful Texas hill country, is drought resistant (constant level) and also the home of the popular Inks Lake State Park and Camp Longhorn.

This uniquely designed two story home features lots of windows and scenic lake views from every room. The kitchen and dining area offers plenty of space for meal preparation on granite and stainless steel counter tops, stainless stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven, coffee maker and utensils. If cooking outside is your preference, a gas grill and large, wood fired BBQ pit are both available for perfecting your favorite outdoor recipes. The utility room beside the kitchen includes a washer and dryer for refreshing your weekend wardrobe or extended stays. A comfortable living room, bedroom with a king size bed, 40' flat panel TV/DVD and 1.5 bathrooms complete the downstairs floorplan. A spiral staircase leads upstairs to a dramatic 1930's style steel catwalk that connects two bedrooms and a large shared bath. Both upstairs bedrooms have a double bed; one of the upstairs bedrooms also features a cozy bunk bed.

A large covered deck spans the front of the house, offers a cool breeze and plenty of additional lakeside seating. The water's edge is only a short walk away across a large St. Augustine grass yard. Wide concrete steps provide easy access to the water and boat dock on a private, no-wake cove which is ideal for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking or floating peacefully on inner tubes with friends. The dock features plenty of space for sun bathing during the day or star gazing at night. Our boat normally occupies the boat lift from April-September but you are welcome to bring a small/medium boat and tie it to the mooring buoy or dock. Boat and jetski rentals are available close by. Please note there is no marina located on inks Lake so you will need to bring your own gas. Our property has a steep driveway, which is best to back down for easiest departure. Small/medium boat trailers can be left here or in the empty lot at the end of the boat launch located west of our home in the same cove. Navigating boat trailers can be difficult in our narrow rural neighborhood roads.

Other activities and resources in the immediate area:

Tour several Hill country wineries,

Explore the underground caves of Longhorn Cavern State Park,

Take the Vanishing Texas River Cruise upriver to see waterfalls, eagles nesting and other wildlife,

Hike through Inks Lake or Enchanted Rock State Parks, or

Wander into small towns Burnet, Kingsland and Llano for groceries, restaurants and shopping.

Inks Lake Village is a private rural gated community located minutes off Highway 29 between Llano and Burnet, Texas. Remember to keep the gate code handy before your arrival,. Our driveway is steep but provides space for parking 3-4 cars.

Pet friendly but no cats please (allergy issues). Winter Texans welcome!

About Nancy

So many wonderful memories have been made with our extended family at Inks Lake. We bought the lots in Inks Lake Village in 2000. We designed and started construction of the house in 2005 and the boat dock in 2008.

Nancy purchased this house in 2000

Why Nancy chose Lake Buchanan

Inks Lake Village is a wonderful, small gated community located on this constant level lake. Many of the Texas lakes are so low during our Texas droughts, but not Inks. Many visitors over the years have commented of the relaxed feeling our place holds. Come sit in the back porch rocking chairs, under the ceiling fans and cool down with a large glass of iced tea.

What makes this house unique

Daybreak and sunset are our favorite times of the day. The lake is normally calm and and exudes serenity. The dock usually has a southern breeze. The waterfront has several steps down to the granite-lined beach area. Inks is a deep lake to enjoy wake boarding, tubing, wake surfing, or water skiing almost any time of the day! Secure, gated community.

Special construction details include the many rock-filled pillars designed from inspiration of the Llano bridge and the steel catwalk between the upstairs bedrooms. Our place is light and bright with 44 windows to view the lake from each room. Please be considerate of our year round neighbors!

Best Summer Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we have rented this lake house and couldn't be happier. The house is gorgeous. The grounds are lush and lovely. The water access is ideal and the location is perfect. We actually got there a little early and met the owners and they couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Honestly, the only negative part was having to leave. We will definitely be back, as the kids look forward to this every year. Just wonderful!!

The Talbots have thought of everything!!! #612 feels like your home during your RETREAT....not only is it a stunning property with a wonderful home, but it's sitting on the best spot on Inks Lake. A wonderful cove and perfect dock to relax on, tie up your boat or jet ski, fish from, etc. This was our first VRBO and will sit as #1 on our Texas lakehouse list for a very long time : ).

The property was beautiful both inside and outside. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

It was a bit tricky finding the property and hauling a boat behind a truck was not easy and the driveway was a bit of a challenge. Other than that, we loved everything about the property and our visit.

Texas Hill Country waterfront lake house with 3 bedrooms 2 1/2 bathrooms that comfortably sleeps 8 people. Rustic and relaxing decor, large covered deck, spacious yard, fishing/swimming dock with room for your boat and jet ski. Located in Inks lake Village, a small rural gated community, on a no wake cove which opens to the main lake. Neighborhood boat launch available. The fishing is great but our children have enjoyed most the water sports. Kayak across the lake at sunrise. Canoe with a friend for bird watching. On really hot days, you'll find us 'floating' on rafts right off our beach. So much more to do in the surrounding area! Spend a day hiking at Enchanted Rock State Park, tour Fall Creeks, Torr Na Lochs, and Perissos vineyards and winery, antique shop in historic Fredricksburg, visit President Johnson's boyhood home in Johnson City, grab some BBQ at world famous Cooper's in Llano, explore the caves at Longhorn Cavern State Park, or take a slow relaxing cruise on the Vanishing Texas River Cruise on Lake Buchanan. At the end of the day, fire up the large BBQ pit or gas grill to cook your own special recipes.
