About Marian S.

Hi! I'm Marian, mother to 4 active boys ranging in age from 5 - 14 yrs old. We reside in a suburb of Austin, TX. I'm busy with my sons' football, basketball, baseball and school activities. I enjoy volunteering as a science fair judge and mentor for Hays CISD and Austin Energy's Regional Science Fair.

I'm a life long collector of miniatures and dollhouses. As an adult I have trained in glass blowing and lampwork at Wheaton Village. I have a green thumb for growing a variety of ferns in my Texas home. Both owls and cardinals have a special meaning to my family. I've incorporated a little of each of these hobbies into the decor at Lakeside Ferns.

" A Little Piece of Heaven"

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I with my daughter and niece just spent the last three days revisiting Lake Pocotopaug. We spent our summers here with our grandparents and never wanted to go home. Funny how we had the same feeling this week. We had a delightful stay, relaxing and catching up with life. Thank you Marion for sharing your charming home. I can't wait to share this little piece of heaven with the rest of our family. It was perfect!

Marian is a JOY and the house is gorgeous and immaculate! Marian had everything you could possibly need and then much, much more!

I stayed in the upstairs bedroom overlooking the lake- there's a huge bathroom including a claw foot tub-

Oh my gosh, can't wait to stay there again!

The house, atmosphere, neighbors and lake were all the best!!!

Great time at a great house

  • 5 of 5

Terrific, everything is well-thought out and in good, clean condition. The lake access has a long private beach, like 30 feet! The boats are fun and in good shape. The house has all the nice little touches to make everything wonderful, including laundry machines, lake floats, dock, hammock (I spent a lot of time there overlooking the lake, and it was always shaded by ample trees). The caretaker is available and conscientious and the property is well-kept.

Would definitely rent again!

Very enjoyable vacation week

  • 5 of 5

I booked this vacation home on the lake with my husband, two daughters age 6 and 10 and my in laws. The house was perfect for us. we loved sitting out on the porch every night and looking out at the lake. The weather was perfect too, hot and sunny, except for a few windy days. Used the paddle boats, kayaks, and canoe often. My husband found a good fishing spot. Marion was very responsive when we had a question or needed something. There is lots to do in the area or even in less than an hour drive away. The house literally has everything you would need.

Perfect Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

The whole experience was delightful! Starting from our initial correspondence, Marian was very responsive and accommodating. The house is immaculate. So clean and comfortable, with attention to every possible detail. The house is well stocked with kitchen items, towels, baby items, games, toys, etc. We had everything we needed! It is obvious that great care and love was put into the house. We really enjoyed the lake. My nephews were able to jump off the dock and they could still touch the bottom, so it really was fun for everyone. Thank you so much Marian (+ team!) for making our trip so easy and so enjoyable. We can't wait to come back!
