Home currently owned by 3 siblings who grew up coming to the Austin Lake House on a regular basis. We have now raised our own kids with regular visits - It never gets old!!
Monta Kennady purchased this house in 1949
Our grandfather, who was comptroller for Texas Parks and Wildlife, bought the property in the 40's, knowing that a Federal Wildlife Preserve was directly across the lake. He and my father built the origional home in the early 50's. The house has been expanded twice and recently updated for comfort and convenience.
We love our family lake house and want to share it with you. We have had many family holidays and events on this picturesque property.The front lawn is expansive and has seen volleyball, frisbee, softball, and flag football games. The layout of sunporch and patio are conducive to outdoor BBQs and outdoor living. Two different sitting area with cable TV and DVD players allow 2 separate groups (kids/adults) to do their 'own thing'. Rooms are spread out so noise and privacy usually not an issue.
Our family had a mini reunion at this cottage on beautiful Lake Austin. It was much more a cottage than a home but it was perfect for our family. We had a wonderful time kayaking on the lake. The views and location are wonderful. I would definitely recommend this property to someone who doesn't need luxury and enjoys together time with family and friends. It was obvious that pets are welcome so it might not be a great place for someone with severe allergies.
Family reunion with ages from 8-80; everyone stayed entertained for 5 days. Everything to be comfortable was there. Loved it :-)
We had a wonderful weekend vacation at this home. They accommodated us with our every request.
Our family played horseshoe, frisbee target, golf tee practice, while the children scampered about the yard playing with toys. We rented a boat and the dock was perfect.
Sunsets on the floating dock were memorable. Evenings around the fire were perfect.
The long weekend was too fast.
We have a large group and this property worked out amazing for us. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Each room has a window unit that cools the house very well. The sun porch is a wonderful place to eat, play games and enjoy the beautiful view. Our group enjoyed the kayaks and the yard and all the games that were made available for us. I would definitely recommend this property and plan on renting it again!
My only negative comment would be that the dirt driveway isn't noticeable on the HomeAway page; we had terrible rain a couple of days and it made things quite messy. Owner VERY responsive though and certainly always appreciate great communication.
The property is absolutely gorgeous. The view is fantastic, the house sleeps 10+, and there is a boat dock to tie your boat up to. Not to mention the actual boat ramp is a 1 minute drive from the house. They even provided us with a huge bucket of golf balls, golf clubs, and a mat to hit into the lake. There are restaurants, grocery stores, and bars near the house as well. The owners provided great customer service, and the house was very clean and maintained very well. Could not have asked for a better time. Highly recommend this to all my friends and relatives.
