Service above and beyond is much appreciated!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation weekend at Elk Lodge on Lake LBJ on May 19 - 22, 2016. The property was outstanding, clean and spacious. The boat lift was a huge bonus as we brought our boat and launched it at the convenient ramp. Although all the rivers in the area were overflowing and muddy but Lake LBJ was nice and clean and we enjoyed swimming in the cool water. The service from Front Desk Vacation Rentals went above and beyond the norm when I left a very expensive hard drive in the closet. John retrieved it from the cleaning staff and took it by FedEx so it could be shipped to my home. Thank you John for your help. I really appreciate it We will definitely look to Front Desk for vacations plans in the future and will recommend it to family and friends. Thanks again ,Dave

Beyond all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The description of this home does not do it justice! The vaulted ceilings and glass windows overlooking the lake are breathtaking! The managers have thought of everything you could possibly need during your stay!

We are a family of 5 and have rented homes literally around the world. None of the homes have been stocked as well as this home! The kitchen was nice sized with dishes for 16! The oven was large and there were every type of pot and pan we could need - and we did a LOT of cooking!! Additionally, the washer and dryer were more than full-sized and there was even detergent for our first load!

The living room was off the kitchen with large over-sized leather couches and lots of games and puzzles ready for family participation. The patio had wonderful sturdy furniture, the waterfront had Adirondack chairs with a fire pit, and the dock had lounge chairs. The beds were all very comfortable and plenty of extra blankets for cozy time on the couch!

The listing says it is dog friendly. What we did not expect was concrete-stained floors and a doggy door!!! It took my dog all of 10 minutes to figure out the new door and our lives were forever easier! There was even extra gating to block off the patio so that the dog could come sit outside with us. To make my kids happy and my princess canine happy leads to a happy, happy mom!

Jon and Casey were wonderful! They were responsive to any concern. Our only negative was the internet was never truly functioning -- nothing a trip to Starbucks to download our emails didn't resolve! We rented a boat from Splash Boat Rentals and they brought it right to the house and were waiting for us upon our return! This rental truly took lake-living to a new level!

Thank you for a wonderful, quiet, family-filled week!

Memorial Weekend on the Lake

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Elk Lodge for our annual Memorial Day weekend at the lake and it was our favorite house we've ever rented by far! Very clean and spacious and had everything we needed. Great deck and dock, quiet location on the lake. Love it!

Perfect empty nester getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time with old friends. Everything was set up perfectly to enjoy a weekend at the lake. Prepared wonderful food in the the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed it sitting at the huge table. Just hit a switch and the boat was in the water. Plenty of room in the house.

Great Family Get together

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting at Lake LBJ from Jon and Casey at Your Front Desk Services since 2005. We have stayed at many of their properties, and all have been well managed and well maintained. Summer 2014 marks the second year in a row that we have rented the Elk Lodge and the Barefoot Cottage together for a week long reunion with extended family. Our group consists of three generations with children ranging from 8 to 26 years of age. All age groups are entertained with fishing, boating, and swimming. Both houses have great boat docks, each with an upper deck. The water is deep and clear and each deck has a gate that opens for diving and jumping into the water. The properties are located on the Colorado Arm of LBJ. This is by far our favorite section of the Lake which is just below the Inks Lake Dam. Every day the dam releases cool clean water into LBJ via the Colorado Arm, so the water here is always very fresh and clean. At night, the upper decks turn into a stargazing party, which is a favorite spot for the whole family to gather in the evening. In late summer, the Perseid meteor shower arrives around midnight, and the dark clear summer nights away from the city make for perfect viewing from both upper decks. The Elk lodge has a great kitchen with a gigantic dining table, which made it the gathering place for dinners each night. The Barefoot Cottage has a cool bottom floor living room and kitchen that is easy access from the boat docks for those who needed to escape the heat of mid-day or to grab a quick snack or beverage.

All in all, these two houses are a great place to stay. This is no lakeside campground. Both houses are modern, well appointed, tastefully decorated and very livable. I wish I could just move in and stay.
