Perfect

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place to celebrate my mother's 87th birthday. To have 4 generations under the same roof was wonderful. There were 21 of us from 15 months to 87 years. There was lots of space so people could pursue different activities and we never got into each other's way. The pool was great and all enjoyed the fishing. The trees, water and serenity were all inspiring and relaxing.

The house is beautiful and the beds were so comfortable. We felt so welcome in your home and we made wonderful memories and hope to gather there again.

Best We've Seen

  • 5 of 5

We've rented vacation homes probably a dozen times in numerous states. This was the most well-equipped and most comfortable place we've stayed! The bedrooms are large with comfy beds, the living areas are great for gatherings of small or large groups, the kitchen is fully stocked with equipment and dishes. The fishing pond, the swimming pool ... it's all just a great set-up ... off the beaten path, but plenty close to town and close to some fun, small town Texas attractions. And to top it off, Bryce is great to work with! We hope to have the opportunity to stay again!

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ten converged from Dallas, Houston, Austin, and College Station to this beautiful and serene central setting to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. The house is pampered and roomy, with a large kitchen, dining room table for 10, and a large open living room. Outside was a big patio, pool, and covered area with seating/lounging for up to 20.

100 yards away was a large and well-stocked tank for fishing, so we all brought our rods and enjoyed great success with large and small-mouth bass. This is a wonderful place to assure that your kids will easily catch some aggressive fish and

have a fun time.

The house had everything that we needed to prepare large meals, to include a large built-in barbecue outdoors. Two large refrigerators and loads of counter space made things easy for our 3 cooks.

Very comfortable bedding and linens, and large clean bathrooms allowed our family perfect privacy and rest each evening.

Perfect weekend for us, ideal venue.

Thanks for sharing this piece of Heaven with us!

Superb get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at this vrbo! It is a beautiful property with a very well appointed home. Our group of seven women enjoyed all the conversation and eating areas. There was also plenty of space to have privacy as needed! We will gather at this prime property again.

Multi-Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Four families of four visited this property for a three day weekend over Memorial Day weekend. The house was beautiful and the grounds were better than expected! We were able to take hikes every day and the fishing on the pier was a lot of fun... because the kids were actually catching fish! Each family had two kids and the four bedrooms accommodated each family just perfectly. We piled the kiddos on the big couch each night for a movie and the adults sat out back and chatted and played cards! It was a really nice get away. The kitchen had everything we needed and the layout is great, we never felt on top of each other. We are talking about going back again we all enjoyed ourselves so much! The owners were great! Lots of helpful tips for the area and easy check and check out!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 14 adults and 2 young children stayed at this lovely home for 3 days. The house is huge, beautifully decorated, and more than enough room for everyone to spread out with ease. We thoroughly enjoyed cooking in the spacious kitchen, playing board games on one of the 2 dining tables, and also visiting in the more than ample seating in the living room. We also rented the 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage on the property. Both homes were spotless and all the bedding was extremely comfortable. Bryce was always available for questions and was quick to respond if needed. He was very easy to work with and I would absolutely recommend this property for a large gathering. It's in a beautiful, quiet country setting. The lake and inground pool a plus.
