Lake LBJ House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2849 sq.ft., 2 living areas & constant level water & awesome views!

While several lakes in Texas are still down, Lake LBJ is a constant level lake so plenty of water for tons of water fun! Located on the Llano arm where the water is wide, deep & warmed by the Rock Slab up river. Everything you need for a fun memorable vacation with family & friends. Our subdivision is a small quiet wooded community where you'll find walkers most mornings enjoying the peaceful tranquility or sit back with a cup of coffee & watch the sunrise glisten over the water with the Mallards & Canadian geese waiting for their breakfast from neighbors, cheap dog food is their favorite. On occasions you'll get to watch the wake-boarders testing their skills to the limit on the smooth as glass water. We also have our own private boat ramp & wooded park with picnic benches & BBQ grills. Our home has a nice covered patio with BBQ grill, covered boat dock with lift for ski boat or jet ski & boat whips for the larger wake board boats. Not a boat person? How about fishing. There's plenty of bass, white bass, perch, catfish, croppie, etc. In the front yard is a huge covered partially enclosed court yard adoring a Tuscany look & feel with picnic bench, great for large gatherings. Our Hacienda has 2 large living areas, one that faces the water for an awesome view & other has a flat screen TV, Foosball, air hockey, games, etc. The dining room will fit a large crowd or even better, eating out on the covered patio facing the water or in the front courtyard. There's 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths. The master has it own bath & dressing area with additional sink & a king size bed, 2nd bedroom has 2 double beds, 3rd sleeps 6 total with 2 bunk beds & a futon/single bed, & the 4th bedroom has a king & over looks the courtyard. There are 2 fire pits, one down at the water under the covered boat dock, the other in the front courtyard.

Kingsland is a small community with a grocery store within a mile, 3 delicious Mexican restaurants, what we think is the best BBQ any where around. For a more formal dinning experience, there a restaurant that was featured in the Chain Saw Massacre Movie! Of course, we also have a wonderful restaurant at the golf course which is open to everyone. All this information is included in a book at the home.

We are 20 minutes from Marble Falls, TX, 20 minutes from Buchanan Dam, TX, 20 minutes from Longhorn Caverns, 25 minutes from Llano, TX, 25 minutes from Burnet, TX, 45 minutes from Enchanted Rock, 60 minutes from Fredericksburg, TX, 60 minutes from Austin, TX, 85 minutes from San Antonio, TX, 3 1/2 - 4 hours from Houston and Dallas, TX. Area Attractions: Golf courses, Packsaddle Country Club is 10 minutes away, the Legends Country Club is 5 minutes, Hidden Falls Country Club is 15 minutes, Delaware Springs Country Club is 20 minutes, Horseshoe Bay Resort (3 courses) is 25 minutes, tennis, shopping, and lots of sights to see are all within easy access. We are 85 minutes from San Antonio's Fiesta Texas, Sea World, and Zoo. Also, Schlitterbahn Water Park in San Marcos.

Take a day trip and climb the massive granite mountain at Enchanted Rock State Park.

Great golfing is available year round on 5 area golf courses. View and photograph Eagles nesting on the Llano River bank going to Llano from Jan through spring each year. Llano County is the 'Deer Capital of Texas'. Obtain a license and take part in seasonal deer and dove hunting. Watch July 4th fireworks from our yard. This lake house is about an hour from Austin's Bergstrom airport, or 80 minutes from San Antonio's International airport, and 25 minutes from Horseshoe Bay Resort.

The fall climate is pure enjoyment and the winter climate is also mild. The winter temperature is usually in the 50-70 degree range. Our 'freeze spells' never last long. This is Texas, we can have a 40 degree day one day & a 70 degree the next! We rarely have snow and it melts quickly. Kingsland is a popular attraction for Winter snow birds, so come on down! Whether it's a weekend, a week, or a month or two, come to the Texas Hill Country and treat yourself and your family (and pets) to a wonderful time on this constant-level lake! With 2849 sq. ft. there's plenty of elbow room.

Perfect annual family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual family get together this year at the Hacienda for the first time and it was perfect! We had a group of 14-16 ( some were babies) and it was able to hold all of us very comfortably. The house was great, no issues and the property was amazing! We could not have ask for a better place and will definitely continue our annual family get together at the Hacienda! The water was great to swim in and even clean and safe for all of the kids. Lots of fishing and fire pit at night and just a great time! Thanks again Sunny!

Great! Wonderful memories with friends!

  • 4 of 5

We were so anxious about the weather that weekend because there was a flash flood warning around Kingsland, but Sunny kept reassuring us that the weather was still dry and sunny. Despite our anxiety, we went through with the booking. I'm not sure if it was Sunny's clairvoyance or her sunny outlook, but the weather turned out good for us; barely any rain though it was cloudy at times. The house was beautiful and spacious and everything was as listed in the listing. The only downside was we couldn't find the key to the boat on which we were hoping to enjoy some time. :( Overall, Sunny was very responsive, and the booking process was easy. She was also helpful especially when I asked if I could transfer my payment from one credit card to another. Thanks Sunny for reassuring us, being responsive, helpful, and making our stay pleasant. We definitely recommend you.

Perfect location, great property.

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfectly located right on the open river. The backyard space and riverfront is enormous and perfect for swimming, fishing, and hanging out.

We fished right off the dock and caught tons of fish... some pretty big catfish as well.

We had two families staying... four adults and 7 kids total. Adult couples each had plenty of space and the bunk room for the kids was perfect.

Air hockey table and foosball table gave kids lots to do when we were taking time off from being the river.

The back porch was great for relaxing in the evening.

Highly recommend this property.

Perfect spot on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great! House was larger than anticipated and quite comfortable. The best part was the huge water frontage. Yard was nice for the kids to play. We had a full house and everyone was comfortable!

Relaxing weekend

  • 4 of 5

This house was very large and spacious with plenty of room. Much larger than I expected. Very relaxing.

The house is stocked with everything someone could need, minus the food!

We will be back!

The Hill Country was just beautiful.

Perfect Lake house experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family is spread all over Texas and LBJ was a center location that made travel for all parties manageable for a Thanksgiving gathering.

Sunny has described the house perfectly. It has plenty of room (we had 8 people) and the views are amazing.

Their willingness to allow us to bring our dogs was greatly appreciated. My labs got a great workout retrieving the duck decoys my kids would throw in water. Made for a truly "family" experience because we were all there.

The house has everything you could need - from Crock Pots to spices! Two fullsize refrigerators was a nice surprise as well, since we had a Thanksgiving feast to prepare.

We still are talking about what a great time it was!

Thanks Sunny!
