Overview

Texas Lakes Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Come relax and enjoy our vacation home in beautiful Granbury! The house sits 200 yards from the gated entrance of the property. Great kitchen, with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Hardwood and travertine stone flooring. The screened-in poarch is wonderful for morning breakfast! Cook outdoors in the additional outdoor kitchen in the back while watching the game on the flatscreen TV. There's also a backyard firepit for cool nights and S'Mores roasting. The upstairs balcony has beautiful views - great for watching the sunrise! Or, sit on the 80-foot front poarch and enjoy the view of the on-site pond. There's also a BBQ Smoker that is capable of feeding 200 people onsite. If you'd like to enjoy the lake, you'll have access to the Bentwater Marina.

Please consult our calendar for availability prior to making your request.

Why Cary Shady chose Texas Lakes

We fell in love with Granbury, then with this particular 5-acres in Bentwater when we first saw it over 13 years ago! Over the years, we would bring the family out and envision the house that could be built. When the time was finally right, we were blessed with a wonderful architect and a great builder - both friends of ours. It has truly been a wonderful experience.

What makes this estate unique

The challenge in staying here is finding the time to take advantage of all of the enjoyable spaces, whether it be the front poarch or balcony, the screened in dining area or the back yard bar, the private swing outside the master bedroom or the one out front -- and on and on! There's a different beautiful view on each side of the house!

Great getaway for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was very welcoming and clean. Cary was incredibly helpful and responsive during the planning and booking process. There were 5 of us, but could have easily slept more. The property was beautiful and was just a short drive from the square. I highly recommend this house for anyone just wanting an easy getaway. It would work for a group of adults or multiple families with kids.

Great cousins reunion

  • 5 of 5

Great cousins reunion at the Bentwater estate. This is our fifth reunion and this one was by far the best as far as amenities and graciousness of the host. We don't do too much looking around during our reunions because we're too busy reminiscing and giggling and just having a wonderful time together. So glad I found out about VRBO.

Warm welcoming home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this home as it accommodated our family. The large open floor plan of the kitchen, eating area and family room made food preparation and visiting very easy. We played board games in the house and also played foosball upstairs. Outside, we played horse shoes, hit golf balls and enjoyed the fire pit and wild life, especially the variety of birds in the back yard. Several family members walked/ran in the adjoining neighborhood. The listing description was accurate and the owner provided good customer service. We appreciated the stocked pantry. On Saturday, we visited the Revolver Brewery and enjoyed our visit there.

A Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday staying at this home, and it was just as enjoyable as the first time! We had lots of room to spread out, visit with family, and just enjoy a relaxing time in the country. This house is simply amazing - well laid out, completely stocked for our every need, and just a delight! We will definitely stay here again!

Very relaxing home

  • 4 of 5

This home was a great place for our girlfriends reunion. We enjoyed coffee on the screened-in porch. We watched the sunrise from the upstairs baloney. There was always a cool breeze where ever we sat. The kitchen was large enough for all of us to cook. Cary was a great host. The home was beautiful and everything we hoped for. We would stay there again.

The house was an excellent location for our family birthday celebration. Our guests ranged in ages from 70 to 2 and everyone had a wonderful time. We had 9 people and the house was definitely big enough to hold all of us comfortably. There was plenty to do at the house, but it is also very close to lots of commerce if you want to get out and about. Great vacation.
