About Patti King

We are a large family with 13 grandkids and many dogs spread out over the US. Our lakehouse has been our summer gathering place for 27 years.

Patti King purchased this house in 1990

Why Patti King chose Texas Lakes

We chose Lake Granbury, since it is just 40 minutes from Fort Worth and Arlington - which makes for a very easy getaway.

What makes this house unique

The lakehouse is casual and comfortable and our property on the cove is fantastic for boating, exploring, swimming and endless fun in the lake. We have had 5 extended family reunions and numerous parties. The yard is sprawling and great for soccer games, volleyball, badminton and bocci ball.

Wonderful Family Friendly House on Quiet Cove

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this property! After scrambling for a last minute rental thanks to Hurricane Harvey, we came across this listing and our Plan B turned out to be the best decision we made. Our family of 14 had plenty of space and the 3 bathrooms were perfect! The kids spent almost all their time in the lake - kayaking, paddle boarding and just floating. The calm cove was ideal as it was peaceful and calm. The provided kayaks and paddle boards REALLY made the trip - what an excellent bonus! There rooms were spacious and well laid out as well. The large back patio was perfect with plenty of seating and a huge table we could all eat and play games out. We cooked every meal and the kitchen was so well stocked. This was the best supplied property we have ever stayed out. The owners were great and super responsive. We are already planning to rent again for next year! Thank you Brown family!!

Beautiful & Tranquil

Well maintained, older property on a beautiful cove of Lake Granbury. Peaceful, quiet and big enough to accommodate our large family. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had 16 stay comfortably in this wonderful lake retreat home. The paddle boats and kayaks added to our lake enjoyment. This house is well equipped and it was an easy arrival and departure which helped stay in vacation mode. Great find.

Great time here at Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Christmas. The weather was beautiful and warm which allowed us to be outside and on the lake- fishing, kayaking, paddle boating, just playing. If the weather had been bad, it would have been close quarters. Plenty of sleeping spots (we had 16 people) but only one living area and small kitchen. House is greatly furnished! Only suggestion would be a bigger TV as we all like to watch movies at night and guys wanted to watch some football. But overall a great place on the lake. Great place for kids!

Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We had the most perfect vacation. 4 Grand parents, 4 parents and 5 ranging in age from 8 to 22.

This is the best equipped VRBO we have ever found. It had everything we needed to cook the. big dinner or sit around a big fire pit and relax.

The yard was perfect for bean bag or football, they all enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boat.

Granbury is close enough for shopping on the square or the Oprah House theatre.

Granbury Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Our time there was excellent. The two story house is located on a peninsula in a cove off of the main body of the lake. The set up of the house, location of two large bedrooms downstairs separated by the kitchen and living areas with two bedrooms up stairs gave each of the three families with our 5 grand children privacy, but with ample room with not feeling crowded. The kids swam and fished off of the dock, while each pair of the adults took turns in the paddle boat or kayaks. We cooked out on the gas grill and made smores at the stone fire pit near the lake. The owner of the property was generous in giving us additional time since she didn't have bookings sandwiched around us. We will definitely be going back.
