This 3438 sf ranch home and separate guest house is the perfect place to enjoy a lake vacation in a serene country setting. 1 acre fenced & gated private property with boat dock and covered fishing/swimming dock. Pontoon boat and one wave runner are available for rental on site so that your family can take full advantage of Texas’ largest constant level lake.

The main house features large open living areas with high ceilings and views of the lake from every room. Travertine floors, granite countertops, and knotty alder wood throughout the home add to the style and sophistication of the property. There are 3 bedrooms and sofa sleepers in the main house that sleep 12 comfortably, 2 full baths, gourmet kitchen, large dining room, 2 living areas, game room with pool table and darts.

There is also plenty of parking out front to accommodate 10 vehicles. Finally, if you choose to bring your four legged friend and need to leave the property, we offer first class accommodations in our outdoor Pet Gazebo.
We love getting away from the hustle and bustle of Austin and spending time at the lake. We have a 8 year old son, who absolutely loves the water so we spend as much time here as possible. Paul is originally from Wisconsin, and Stephanie has lived in Texas most of her life. We currently reside in Austin.
Paul and Stephanie Schleicher purchased this house in 2014
Our favorite thing about the property is the large yard with the gentle slope to the water. The openness of the main house gives our guests plenty of room to entertain and celebrate time at the lake! This home has been completely remodeled, and is fenced with secure gate access.
Large spacious yard that can accomodate large families/groups without feeling cramped and, very few steps to access the waters edge. Great for fishing anywhere along the property yet protected from the surging waves of the open water. Fenced and gated yard is great to let the kids or dogs run free. An almost continuous breeze makes the backyard canopy a favorite vantage point for many to sit and enjoy the numerous outdoor activities.
Our family arrived 12/26/16 & left 12/29/16. 1st impression was how clean & so well stocked in the kitchen for cooking. Our oldest grand children live out of state so we rarely get them all together under one roof. We did not eat out at all. Kids requested their favorite dishes from Grandma & their mothers. Being able to all sit together for our meals at the large table was a joy. In the evenings we were all at the same table for games & could still see the TV for football games. Beds were comfortable & the younger kids loved being in the bunk house away from the adults playing their own games. The grounds are lovely & we spent a lot of time outdoors playing corn hole which we brought. Built fires in the fire pit for smores. We really got lucky for Dec., in the mid 80's the entire time. Would love to come back in the summer If we can round them all up again. Have no complaints whatsoever. The kids did miss not having WiFi though. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. A wonderful experience. A 1st for us renting a vacation home.

Thank you Paul and Stephanie for allowing my family and I to stay at your beautiful home. We had a very relaxing time. We fished, slept, played pool,darts and visited with the neighbors. We stayed in the home from 7/28/16-7/30/16 and once again it was great time. Everything you wanted and needed is right at your fingertips. The only thing I would suggest are better pool sticks and chalk, but it could be the user (I am not that good). The yard was so beautiful and I loved being behind the gate it made the feeling of being on a private property that much better.
The property was as advertised, well maintained and clean. Many little extras as cool pops, ice cream in freezer and many condiments for your cooking. Beautiful yard, dock and out door living areas. Quiet little cove, but water is shallow and tents to not clean itself well so swimming is better out in river off the boat. Very nice pontoon boat for the whole family to enjoy. Over all a very pleasant experience.
On the down side there was a mix up on boat rental which had been arranged in advance, but owner made every effort to correct same and it worked out well.
I give it a five star rating and would recommend it to others.
Three days post check out and no word on deposit return.
This is a fantastic house and property for any event. Our family gathering of 28 managed to have plenty of room. It didn't even feel crowded in any fashion. Paul and Stephanie managed to make our stay wonderful with all the special touches(welcome basket with snacks and wine, hairdryer, ice, games, supplies, etc) and helped answer our questions immediately. The only issue we ran into was someone paying attention to assist others with opening the driveway gate with the remote when they left to run errands. Also if you bring your own boat there is plenty of room to park it and still have room for cars, but beware the ramp is not close to the house so it takes at least two people to assist (one to drive boat back - almost 20 minutes and one to drive vehicle and trailer back). The cove made it a wonderful place to swim and not be in the main stream of boat traffic. The children actually fished and caught blue gill perch and catfish. Overall I would rent this location again and again. Loved it! Thanks Paul and Stephanie.
Thanks for a good stay and for great communication and flexibility.
House sleeps several comfortably and is very welcoming and extremely organized.
Paul and Stephanie were easy to work with.
Perfect set up for a large group.
Do think not having Wifi capability is a miss. Also, we misunderstood the bunk house/guest house situation and thought we had twelve separate bunk beds. We were able to adjust to the full size bunk beds and sleeper sofa and all worked out well.
Paul and Stephanie were extremely responsive to our questions from Day 1. We had a large family event over a long weekend, and the accommodations were excellent. Having the extra refrigerator in the bunk house was also a very nice feature. The home was very spacious, and provided ample room for 12 adults, and 4 children. We took our boat, and really appreciated the cove to eliminate the waves from hitting our boat while docked. The cove also made an excellent spot for the family to swim during the day, and fish in the late evenings. The only drawback was that the sprinkler system ran every day, and soaked down the interior of my boat. I would recommend that either the sprinklers need to be adjusted down by the dock, or to make sure and bring your boat cover. Overall, I would highly recommend this property, and would definitely give this property a 5 star rating!
