Granbury 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!

Perfect home to host our engagement!

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous! Very spacious and super clean. Cary made us feel right at home, he was always available when we had a question. We couldn't have picked a better home to host our engagement party.

A Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with HomeAway, and it certainly set the bar high! We were looking for a relaxing place to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday, and could not have been luckier to find this property.

The property owner is incredibly accommodating and very easy to work with. He went above and beyond to ensure the quality of our stay.

The property itself is beautiful. It is easy to access and there is no shortage of things to do. During our stay, we BBQ'ed several times, played horse shoes, relaxed at the fish pond, and enjoyed a small bonfire. The interior of the house is very spacious, clean, and comfortable with all of the amenities you could ask for.

It has a quiet/country feel, but yet is conveniently close to several stores and attractions. Our group visited Revolver Brewery (during our stay) and had a great time.

I highly recommend this property and hope to make it back again in the future!

Amazing, spacious and comfortable in a Country setting yet a coulple minutes from Granbury!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed everything about this home! The property is beautiful and set off the road. There were 11 of us that stayed in the home and we were very comfortable! We also had our daughter's wedding at the property and it was perfect! Cary and his wife Christi are such sweet people! Cary was so helpful with everything we needed for the wedding and giving suggestions for set-up, etc. If we ever need to stay in the Granbury area again we would hands down stay here again! We highly recommend this home!! Thank you Cary and Christi for sharing your beautiful home, Bob & Paula L.

I am sure Cary and his family are happy and cheerful too. The porches are wonderful for sitting and visiting. We were lucky to have a cooler

August weekend to enjoy the dock by the pond. We grilled on the back patio. We all like to cook and everyone pitched in.

We also explored Granbury. We would surely recommend this property and go back too. Thanks Cary for everything.

It was just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed the lovely house and the grounds. The children loved the fishing in the pool. Our anniversary was such a blessed time of fellowship and remembrance with all of our children. We appreciated the interaction with the owner and the help he provided. I would highly recommend this service and this property. It is a great way to vacation.

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.
