Beautiful, relaxing, and spacious
I recently reserved the property for a girls' weekend in which about 18 ladies attended. It was a little like herding cats most of the time, but Todd, the property manager, was very nice & extremely accommodating. We ultimately had an amazing weekend & I'm already being asked if we can do it again next year! I think we will definitely try some of the on site massage & yoga options next time we reserve.
My only recommendation is that if you're going with the max number of guests like we did, that you bring a few extra air mattresses. We did this just in case, & it worked out perfectly for some of the ladies who didn't want to share a bed.
Thank you Todd & Living Waters for a perfect weekend getaway!
Beautiful property. Interesting architecture and relaxing hill country / lake environment perfect for hosting a weekend retreat. Bethany and Travis were extremely helpful. We'll be back! Highly recommended.
Glorious! Very supportive of retreats!
The property is beautiful. Nature at your fingertips. It was extremely supportive of the type of retreat that I attended. I will return, and I have already recommended it to a number of people.
My husband and I rented this house for our anniversary. We had a great time! The house is very spacious and has really nice amenities. We actually saw three deer run across the property on Saturday night while we were out on the deck watching the sunset. Although we missed the community yoga Saturday morning, my husband and I both had Thai massages with Travis and they were so rejuvenating. I highly recommend it. We went to Krause Springs, which is only about 10 to 15 minutes away and it was breathtaking. On Bethany's recommendation, we stopped by Opie's BBQ first. It was so good that we stopped by there on Sunday morning and got food to go! We enjoyed a wine tasting at the fabulous Stone House Vineyard, which is literally a stone's throw from the property! They have marvelous wine. We also enjoyed steak and lamb at J5 steakhouse one night. It was wonderful that everything was such a short distance away and that we had our lovely, relaxing house to come back to! We can't wait to do it again!
I rented this house for my husband's 29th birthday - we took a long weekend and it was AMAZING. This house is so beautiful. Very nice amenities. There were 4 couples and my 8 month old son. We had a blast! We went to Krause Springs since the lake levels were low. The boys went fishing and the gals did the wine tasting! We sat on the deck and drank coffee in the mornings and watched the deer run through the fields. It was quite relaxing! I will defiantly rent again!
Mother's Day Weekend Retreat
This place is truly amazing. Living Waters is one of the most majestic spots I've ever visited in the Texas Hill Country. Even with the lake down very low...it's a beautiful spot. My family of 8 and I spent a relaxing Mother's Day Weekend here. Love the location!!! We visited Krauss Springs (basically right around the corner) and spent the day swimming and exploring. Also drove into town (Bee Cave, I think) they have some have very unique shops...we had a blast! Bethany was the perfect hostess...she never intruded, but was always present to help when we had questions or requests. This trip was planned last minute, and from the moment we contacted her, she was on top of everything we needed. We hoped for a relaxing getaway, and got that plus so much more! We hated to leave, and are already planning our next trip back... THANKS BETHANY!
We are filled with joy to read this! Thank you so much for your kind words ~ we love you enjoyed your visit and took advantage of all of the fun local activities & small hill country towns. Your family is so sweet and oh my goodness, your little one is out of this world adorable. We are here for a Mom's Retreat anytime you need it! We hope to see you soon,
