About the property

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.

Hated to leave this place!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4 night stay was so enjoyable. The owners have provided beautifully for their guests--welcoming note, basket of smore's fixin's, fully equipped kitchen , bowl of pecans waiting to be cracked, games galore--had we been able to bring grandchildren they would have had everything they needed right there--noodles, life jackets, books, toys, bubble wands, ducks, squirrels, fire pit! We always stay in rental homes on vacation and this was the best with little thoughtful touches, ever. We were offered early arrival and late check out. The setting on the lake is so lovely(I now want a lake house) and the kayaks were enjoyed before the cold front blew in on the last day. Location is great for exploring-- nice hikes at Inks Lake State park, Balcones Canyonlands and Pace Bend--much more, not enough time. Two observations--there is no washer/dryer--I did not notice that in description--okay for us as we always over-pack and did hand washing if necessary, on our short stay. Perhaps your remodeling will include laundry area?

and the small bathroom is really small--Shower space is tiny, glad I had shower cap for times I did not want to Get my hair wet. husband and son just used the larger bathroom. Be advised there are 3 steps up to one bedroom.

Overall,we really liked Turtle Rock House .. Mark mentioned there had been recent interior painting and made a special trip the first night to provide new smoke alarms when I called about not seeing any. Right before he came I did find the smoke/carbon monoxide detector and batteries, but he was on his way Just another example of caring for their guests' comfort

Mark and Cathy thank you for making our annual visit with our son so enjoyable. I plan to frame your welcoming note card to keep as a memory of our time on beautiful, peaceful Lake LBJ. And While you didn't actually provide them, we are so grateful for the bluebonnets!

Refreshing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The property was very comfortable, clean and well stocked with all sorts of amenities including a water dispenser which we used to refill our water containers thus preventing more plastic from destroying this environmental gift. The view of the river was spectacular with easy access. The wildlife, especially the turtles and ducks, were so relaxing and fun to watch. We also enjoyed touring the surrounding area. Mark and Cathy, owners, were kind and attentive. Due to our traveling schedule, they generously allowed us to check in early. We hope to return to Turtle Rock.

Great Place to Sit Back and Relax

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view. Enjoyed every minute we spent there. The lake house was everything we wanted, very comfortable and the view of the property and river was fantastic. What a shame when it was time to leave. Highly recommended.
