About the property

5BR, 3.5 Bath, 3400 sq ft, updated, 2 masters, quiet part of Lake LBJ

The calm, cool, waters at Legacy Lakehouse are very inviting; a long canoe ride, kayaking through the rocks, a 15 foot high cannonball off our deck, fishing, and other activities await you. Or you may choose to simply read a novel while floating your day away on a raft. It is possible here due to the lack of boat traffic you get with many of the properties downstream. Enjoy the sunset from the deck, as well as an abundance of birds at the water. We have plenty of space for a family get-together and games for a memorable stay; however we do not want large gatherings of 20 people or more, even if they leave at night.

This is a family owned residence and entering our fourth season in the rental market. We are pleased that several of the renters have returned several times! We predict that if the house feels like home and not a rental, people will treat it as their own.

The house is a roomy 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 2 indoor and 1 outdoor dining areas, 1.5 kitchens, and 3 living areas. We have a few TVs including a 61 inch LED in the main living area which also has a fabulous water view. Our WiFi will keep you connected. The half kitchen is in a living area that has a second refrigerator. The main master bedroom is adjacent, as is a smaller bedroom with a trundle bed. There is a second downstairs master bedroom with a bath. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms with a shared bath. Outside is an expansive patio with another dining table, rockers, nice gas grill, and a ping pong table. At the lower part of the yard is a very nice horseshoe pit with our dad's original set of horseshoes - our tournaments are a lot of fun. At the water's edge, there is easy access to the water with a platform attached to the boat dock and sidewalk. There are two elevated decks for relaxation, sunsets, s'mores and a pretty scary cannonball. The dock has the owner's boat in the slip (not for use). INCLUDED in the rental is the use of 4 kayaks, a canoe, and two standup paddleboards - a great value! Don't forget your fishing gear as the fishing can be excellent in this part of the lake.

We have been asked about bringing boats. You are welcome to bring a boat. A private community launch is about a mile away, and it can be parked at the house. However, it is difficult to drive an i/o and impossible to drive an inboard boat to our dock from the close ramp. If you are looking for a house with a dock as a base for daily wake boarding, there are better choices downstream. If you prefer the safety, peace and quiet away from constant boat activity, our house is hard to beat. Fishing boats are no problem.

We are located on Shoals Parkway, in Hoovers Valley, very near Inks Lake State Park and Longhorn Caverns. There is a great little corner store and cafe nearby. Also very close is highly rated Perissos Vineyard. Kingsland is 12 minutes away for HEB, golf, boat rentals, etc. The area is full of friendly people and great times are assured! Read our reviews and call if you have questions.

Spend a week or longer at Legacy Lakehouse for a true vacation. You will feel as if you are in a faraway place, yet only 75 minutes from downtown Austin. For longer rentals, feel free to contact us for pricing.

About Brian, Rosie, or Bruce

The owners of this property want to provide an inviting location to keep the families together. Our parents used to live just down the street and we have had many wonderful memories of the area. We want to do the same for our children and hopefully theirs as well.

Brian, Rosie, or Bruce purchased this house in 2013

Why Brian, Rosie, or Bruce chose Burnet

We know how special this part of the lake is - the rocks cut down the boat traffic and creates a wonderful environment. Ducks outnumber jetskis. We are able to kayak and paddleboard like it is our private lake. Plus, my dad gave the previous owner some iris bulbs 30 years ago and they are still growing. Couldn't pass that up.

What makes this house unique

The water is the focal point of this house, inside and out. It is hard to get the feeling from the photos but I suspect after a couple days you will start to understand why we love it.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening your home to us! Our family had a great time being together and enjoying all the different options of things to do! Our little ones loved all the open area to crawl and play indoors, and our older ones loved all the outdoor activities. Thanks again!

Relax and Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

House was in very good shape, lots of room in house, very quite and view was wonderful. Kitchen fully stocked with dishes and pans. Wonderful dock to swim and fish off from, fishing a bit slow except for turtles but this time of year is not always great for fishing. Lots of things to do in the water with the equipment and the water was great, cool and lots of fun. Our family loved the weekend there.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and this house is perfect. It was out of way of the very congested boat traffic on the main part of LBJ. The kayaks and fishing were great on this part of the lake. We enjoyed the nearby state park and everyone loved the vineyard. The house and property were much larger and nicer than we anticipated. We will definitely return in the future!

Owner's Response: Thanks Matt for your review! Our part of the lake is a lot quieter than downstream, no doubt. I am glad you caught some fish.

Absolutely gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the outdoor property was gorgeous. It was so relaxing and serene. We are a group of athletes who came down to come to compete in a race and this was perfect. We were able to rest before and after the race and really enjoyed staying at the house. It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel. We will definitely stay again next year when we return. It exceeded our expectations.

Owner's Response: I looked up the race you attended and I would definitely need some R&R after completing that race! I am glad it was a good fit for your group. I agree - much better than a hotel as you have a great space to meet and enjoy the company.

Wonderful and amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Property better than the pics, no complaints or issues. I only wished we could stay longer. Loved the kyacks, paddle boards, fire pit, fishing, plenty of nice life jackets for everyone.

Owner's Response: We hope to see you for a longer stay next time! We think the area is perfect for paddle boards and kayaks. I hope you made an attempt through the rocks in a kayak with the water generating (always go with friends in case you flip over). We are glad you had a good time. Brian, Bruce, and Rosie

Awesome, Beautiful property with Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. It was really nice to have the boat dock to fish off of. The house was very comfortable and quite. Just what we were looking for. The owners had great communication as well and were very nice folks. I would absolutely highly recommend.
