Why Cary Shady chose Granbury

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!

House full of happy Spartan racers!

  • 5 of 5

My guests and I booked this rental because it offered the space we needed. Little did we know just how accommodating the rental as well as the owner would be. Cary is absolutely fantastic and rather than going back and forth via emails he would call to make sure we had anything/everything we needed. The house is wonderful. The ample space and open layout made for feeding a bunch of hungry Spartans a breeze. We had the joy of being able to use his smoker which was great! Another huge bonus was the home literally had everything we needed ! We had guests flying in from all over the US for the race so it truly helped that we didnt have to pack a bunch of additional items. My only regret is that we didnt book an extra day or two so simply relax and enjoy the serenity the property offered. Thank you again Cary for sharing your home with us! Look us up if you ever decide to come to Utah !

Beautiful house, great patios, all around perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house is fantastic! Everything was very clean and very nice. They have everything you need. The back patio is a great place to hangout even in the Texas heat because they have 4 fans and lots of shade as well as a TV. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need. We did fish in the pond on property and caught two large catfish. All around a great stay and Cary is a fantastic host. We look forward to renting again in the future.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with scenic front porch. Lots of space. Great place to share with friends and make memories! Very convenient to the many things to do in Granbury. Saw Victor Trevino performing Elvis songs Saturday night and it was fabulous ! Barking rocks winery was also a huge hit with the group.

A Grand Time for All Ages! A Heartfelt Thank You to the Gracious Owner for this Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home, property and owner was extraordinary. We had a fabulous time - we felt as if we were at a grand estate! We came for the Creation Museum, dinosaurs and Fossil Rim - all of which were a perfect 45 minute drive away. The home accommodated our 5 adults and 6 children perfectly - with good privacy and spaces for all to relax, sleep, eat and play. What fun we had at the pond! Truly a unique experience during a rain storm even. And lots of fish to catch (and release) for even the youngest toddler. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked and designed for multi course dinners and gourmet breakfasts. (Convenient to HEB - but with country surrounds!) The outdoor seating gave us times to relax and reflect - lovely landscape. We celebrated a youngster's birthday here and created a special memory. The Granbury courthouse is gorgeous. Thank you to Mr Shady who was most communicative, thoughtful and considerate. I would have given more than 5 stars if I could!

Beautiful home with great spaces.

  • 5 of 5

Nice home well stocked with all needs anticipated. Roomy spaces so everyone had area to either get away for some rest or get together for group activities. Children enjoyed running and playing on the grounds and playing games inside. If this place does not please you, you can't be pleased.

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Granbury to enjoy the long July 4th weekend. Noon check-in on Friday was really nice, and the home was very welcoming. Plenty of room and the home was well appointed! Fully loaded spice cabinet and the pantry was stocked with staples so it's not necessary to pack cooking essentials. Loved the back patio but it was a hot weekend in Texas so we didn't wander out there too often, ha! The grounds are breathtaking and we enjoyed sitting out on the front porch once the sun set. The location was awesome, just minutes to Granbury square and a short drive to Fossil Rim Wildlife Reserve (a definite must if you're coming to the area).

We might have to come back here in the Winter and do some Christmas shopping! Thank you Cary for being a wonderful and informative host - we really enjoyed your lovely home!
