About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

Turtle Rock • On the Quiet End of Lake LBJ

2 Bedrooms + Sleeper Sofa, and 2 Baths (Sleeps 7).

Have you ever rented a vacation rental and then when you see the place, you felt a bit deceived. What the pictures "communicated" did not match up to the reality. Turtle Rock is NOT that kind of place! We hear just the opposite from our guests. Comments like "your pictures do not show the awesomeness of this place" or "we were so pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness and beauty of your place."

Come see for yourself and enjoy a peaceful, scenic experience with the option of not only water related activities but also local hiking, biking, golfing and winery tour. There is something for everyone when visiting our area. Within a 15-20 minute drive, you will find two golf courses, Inks Lake State Park for hiking, Longhorn Caverns and a local winery just to name a few of the activities you might want to check out.

Turtle Rock house sits on an extra large park-like lot, shaded by many large pecan and pine trees. The yard gently slopes down to the water. Several chaise lounge chairs, 2 single kayaks, 1 kayak for two, noodles, floats, etc. are provided for your fun and relaxation.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great! It was very comfortable with plenty of space for the 4 of us, lots of towels, comfy beds, convenient to activities, and the extras the owners provide were awesome - supplies for smore's, firewood for the fire pit, bottled water, extra toiletries, and lots of games. We loved the kayaks, fishing off the dock, watching the wildlife, and the sweet neighborhood cat!

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this lovely cabin. The view is of course the main focus, but the inside should be applauded as well. We had everything we needed. The location is a plus as it allowed us to do the things we wanted without driving miles and miles. The quiet was also much appreciated. It is sure to be very different in the warmer months when the lake for swimming must be the attraction. Callie, the cat, is a nice bonus to this property. We loved feeding and making friends with her..if you don't like cats, don't worry, she is not pushy or needy. Mark and Cathy are gracious, helpful owners who seem to have the guests' interest at heart. I'm sure we will be back!

Absolutely perfect spot right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our experience with Mark and Cathy Bolles at Turtle Rock. From the booking process all the way through check in and check out. They were very accessible and quick to respond to our questions. The lake house is immediately off the up the back door and there's the lake. Their house is in the most beautiful part of Lake LBJ. We will definitely be booking again with Bolles family.

This house is a true gem! We read the reviews prior to going and it was all that and more than we had imagined. The owners truly thought of everything. Our stay was so relaxing and our grandchildren loved it. (Ages 9 and 4). The yard gave them lots of room to play and fish. We will recommend to our friends and family. They caught their first fish and learned how to kayak. Great memories! Great for all ages. Definitely will plan to book for another trip soon! Thank you Mark and Cathy!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The place is even prettier in person. Super clean and fully stocked. You would think it had never been rented before because everything is immaculate. We brought our children ranging in age from 20 to 9 and their was something for everyone to do. Swimming, fishing, playing games inside and out, smores, and satellite tv. We even rented a boat and had it brought right to our dock. The house is equppied with everything you could possibly need and more. We had a lot of fun. Thank you Mark and Cathy for letting us stay in your lovely home.

Gorgeous, peaceful, relaxing, safe, quiet, sun, stars, smores, swimming- our perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Turtle Rock Lakehouse is perfect! A place to really get away and enjoy peace, family time, and the majesty of natural wonders- no tourist attractions, traffic, noise, crowds, etc.

First off, the owners, Mark and Cathy, are such a kind and attentive couple, you feel so welcomed like you have been good neighbors for years! They put so much love and care into the lakehouse and property and it really shows. Both the inside of the house, the oustide and property are very clean, well kept!

The yard is so lush and feels so soft on bare feet! Lots of trees for shade! Sweet hints of nature all around (butterflies, dragon flies, white tailed deer, birds, turtles, Callie!). The grill is clean and has propane ready for grilling, an outdoor fire pit (already loaded with wood and pinion ready to be lit!); perfect for smores (need long skewers for marshallows? Look in the kitchen!) Perfect for stargazing at night!

There are lots of chairs for enjoying the sun and relaxing by the lake! Swimming access is easy- the dock is solid and has a sturdy ladder for getting into and out of the water. The water is clean and so calm, hardly ANY boating traffic, for the few we saw they were very slow! It was as if we had the lake all to ourselves. There are plenty of deep areas for fishing and swimming and when you do find some soft (not slimy) rocks to stand on, you will find them near bigger boulders that you can climb on and sit and enjoy the sun (like the turtles do on turtle rock!). Mark and Cathy also have lots of water toys (and life vests!). Very safe!

The lakehouse itself is so inviting too! The back deck is huge, lots of seating; a huge glass door with a huge glass window so you can look out and see the lake. Inside there is also plenty of seating for dining, playing games, relaxing, reading (lots of awesome books and magazines to read) or watching TV. There are even things to keep the kiddos busy! There are two spacious bedrooms with comfy beds! There are two bathrooms with plenty of necessities (i.e. if you just packed a swimsuit and change of clothes, you'd be fine!)

The kitchen is very well equipped and clean, seriously, just bring your food!! All the appliances work and there is yummy coffee and creamer ready to be enjoyed!

From the big touches to the little touches; the beauty, comfort, serenity and welcoming atmosphere of Turtle Rock Lakehouse is so very special, we cannot wait to come back! Thank you Mark and Cathy! :)
