Perfect Colorado River Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous place on the water. The location is a quiet part of the river with beautiful lawn and small dock, perfect for jumping, diving, sunbathing and stargazing. Above the dock and expansive lawn is the house with a big deck and table that would seat 8 with built in benches surrounding it. The recently remodeled house is a large two bedrooms very comfortable beds and pillows . large open den and dining area looking out toward the deck and the water. There were plenty of extras too, fire pit with s'mores fixings, excellent high heat grill, noodles, two single and one double kayak with easy launch with lifejackets. There were 3 a/c's with individual control that kept the place very comfortable. There were many small touches that were welcoming, the extra toiletries, band-aids, flashlight and bird watching binoculars. The owners were nice enough to warn of the LCRA closing the river and surrounding lakes while the flood control gates were open and work with us if we wanted to cancel. I recommend it.

Senior Girl Getaway

  • 5 of 5

During the week, four of us "senior ladies" went for nearby golf (Lighthouse, 15 minutes away; Legends is even closer) and hours of bridge. We had plenty of room, all the amenities we needed (except wine glasses - bring your own) and a lovely lakefront setting. It was very clean inside! There's plenty of outdoor patio seating with a view of the water, and lovely mature trees. We brought a German Shepherd who was quite comfortable (and welcome) there. There are 2 resident dogs but they're in a fenced area away from the house; there are a couple of cats that come and go. The only downside for us (non-boaters) was easy access to swimming. We noticed families playing on the rocks off their boats, but unless you know how to lower the jet ski deck, it's a big step into/out of the water. Water is dark if you're squeamish - it's lake water. It seems to clear up after they have an upstream dam release. It's also a little steep going from the patio down to the water. It's in a quiet community and was very peaceful; we didn't see anyone else for 2 whole days - or hear anyone! Relaxing! We'd love to come again.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I happened to find this spot for a last minute getaway, and hadnt heard of the company so I called and spoke to the owner- and he sealed the deal with his kindness. Once I drove up-- it was better than I imagined. I am in love with this place. My husband and I came up with my nine year old son and we barely left the house. It has it all! The surrounding area does have fun stuff (caverns, vineyards, parks) but we had a great time just fishing, kayaking and making smores! I will be back for sure. Highly recommend

Great getaway! Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This place had it all. Excellent views, lots of room and we could bring our great dane. It is exceedingly hard to find a place that will allow dogs much less a 125 lb. great dane. So, my wife and I and our dog Suzy had a wonderful time at this place. The flowing water from the Inks Lake dam every day was a welcome surprise! It made the water so much cooler and cleaner! I wish we could have stayed longer. It was really relaxing.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful house for our summer family vacation. The house was beautiful, the owners (who live in the house right next door) were very friendly and didn't intrude too much but were still very approachable. The water was great, the layout was relaxing and very accommodating.

Cool Waters

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Cool Waters for 4 days this past week. We had a wonderful time as we love just hanging out in the river, it's our ideal vacation. Saturday was a little crowded but that was to be expected because the weather was gorgeous for August. The accommodations were good for the small group we had (4 ppl). We usually vacation with a much larger group than this property could accommodate but this year it was a very small group and we were glad to find this affordable property. We were happy we could bring our dog with us as he's definitely part of the family. My only suggestion (not a complaint by any means) for the property would be to install a couple of ceiling fans in side. It got a little warm and I think the air circulation would have been most helpful in keeping it comfortable, else just have a fan or two for the bedrooms at night. We had a great time and we'd definitely consider coming back to the property when our group is small. Owners were very nice and left us alone to enjoy our vacation. We had full use of the lower deck and sitting out next to the river is always a great time. This property is not far from our home but when you're there you feel far away from the city.
