Clean and homey

  • 5 of 5

Our family came together for my husbands birthday

The house was well stocked for our needs and the weekend caretaker Mike kept us happy. The water was super fine! Our grandkids and the adults all loved the kayaks. Swimming in the cove was awesome! We were there for a hot Texas August weekend and the a/c was a welcome relief from the heat!

We couldn't ask for more. We will be back!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that yall had a good time. I wish I could have been there to meet you but I had to take a detour to Oregon. My daughter was starting medical school and I needed to be there for her. I'm glad Mike helped out, he's a good neighbor to have. Hope to meet yall next time. Maybe you should come when it's cooler. Thanks again for being good tenants.

We felt right at home here. Our family get together was a hit. Dave made us feel like family. We loved the boat ride and the deer around the property. Such a great place with lots of character!

Owner's Response: I hope everyone recovered from the tubing behind the pontoon. Maybe next time we can go up to the falls on the boat. Great family, glad you got to experience the lodge. Thanks for cleaning up before you left, it's so nice when guests do that, it really makes it easy on the cleaning crew. I hope you come again some day, you are always welcome here.

Great place and great location

  • 5 of 5

I took a group of 16 (13 boys ages 14-18 and 3 adults) for a few days in June. We usually go camp in tents for our annual trip (somewhere cooler) but decided to stay in Texas and enjoy some creature comforts. All the boys enjoyed being able to have water access where we could get on the ski boat or take the kayaks out. In our down time they enjoyed being able to watch the NBA finals on the TV, or go outside and play some fun games of capture the flag on the property. There's plenty of space to roam around and the house is stocked well. It handled 16 "adults" quite easily and never seemed too crowded.

I'd love to come back and bring my wife and some other couple friends. There are 4 private rooms with queen beds and 2 "lofts" that each have 4 twin beds so it easily handles several different family units. Dave, the property owner was incredibly nice and was available if we had any questions. Thanks for letting us stay!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that ya'll had a good time. Looks like the boys got to burn off some energy, oh to be young again. We'd love to have you back again and thanks for being good tenants. Come back with the scouts or your friends anytime.

Lakefront property. You have access to a boat dock and life is good.

We do have a volleyball court, horse shoe pits, washer pits and tether ball pole for other things to do on the property. There is also a castle playscape for the kids.

We are also open for longer term rental for snow birds in the winter. This is the perfect place for snow birds to get out of northern part of the country and enjoy warmer temperatures and the highland lakes area. Call for special rates for long term rental.
