3 bedroom lakehouse on a peaceful inlet on Lake LBJ!

Relaxing getaway, party in the creek, kayaking/SUP adventure, or boating and skiing on the lake? Your decision on a day by day basis!! In a relaxed setting with large Oak trees, upper covered deck for barbecue and sitting plus lower deck and dock with swim area and jet ski ramps / fishing area. Wake free area, so good for docking your boat right off backyard dock while visiting! It also has a large yard, fire pit, and real grill for your use.

The home can sleep 8-9 people in beds. We also have a cot available upon request.

The master bedroom includes a king-size bed. There is also a full bathroom with shower attached to the master. The front bedroom has a queen size bed as well and views of the water. The back bedroom has a bunk bed with a full size bed on bottom, twin on top. The sun room has a twin bed plus a trundle bed.

The house also includes fully furnished kitchen, dining area, two full bathrooms and living area with a 50 inch HD TV, Xbox 360, Blu-Ray, plenty of board games, and Internet access for your enjoyment.

Overlooking the water is the game room with a computer / writing desk, games closet, and a game / poker table. Going outside from the game room there is a covered deck with tables, chairs, firepit, and bbq pit to enjoy the outdoors (bring materials for smores over the fire pit!) There is also a sitting area in the front of the house.

The openness of the kitchen/living room and the sun room make this a great social vacation getaway. The home has central heating and air conditioning. The property has an updated interior and the dock / deck is brand new!

You may launch your boat in our neighborhood's private boat ramp and tie up to the dock. The waterway is a no wake zone and low traffic, so there is little disturbance. Swimming off the back of the house is really fun and safe - it is only about 4' deep, so take a beer (no glass!) out with you stand around and relax as your kids swim around you! Or take a stand up paddle board, kayak, or canoe up the creek for a relaxing journey.

What do we do when visiting the house? Drop the boat in, tie it to the dock for the weekend when not in use, swim/play on the lake during the day or explore the hill country, bbq with our favorite beverage in the afternoon, then at night: sit around the firepit, watch a movie, play board games, or night fishing! For a mini day-trip, go into Marble Falls (Main Street and Blue Bonnet Cafe!), Johnson City, Llano, Burnet, Austin and many other hill country towns / attractions that are fun to explore within easy driving distance of our location!

Lake LBJ is the only constant level lake (we have water!) in the Texas Hill Country, and it offers water skiing, jet skiing, tubing, and has an abundance of fish for that fisherman in the family (Pecan Creek is known for great fishing and we have caught a good number of fish off the back dock!)

A non-refundable damage deposit of $49.00 is required, prepay by credit card. NO SMOKERS, PETS Okay if behaved or crate contained. Home has towels, sheets and all bedding, a fully furnished kitchen, washer and dryer, fire pit, large yard, boat cleats on dock, community boat ramp for ingress and egress, 2 Large HDTVs, cable TV, Xbox 360, Blu-Ray DVD, wireless internet service. Any violations of the rental contract or these rules constitutes an immediate eviction without refund. $125 Cleaning fee is assessed for each rental.

We really hope you enjoy our lake retreat and hope you will call us with any issues. We know how valuable time away is and want to make sure your stay is comfortable! Please tell us about your experience at the lake house - we appreciate all feedback!!

About David and Traci Godwin

The Godwin family lives in nearby Lakeway, TX (near Austin and Lake Travis). David Godwin is a business owner that grew up in Sugar Land, TX. David, his wife Traci and two daughters own the lake house and when at the house they are doing ALOT of swimming off the backyard, 'testing' great board games to add to the game collection for guests, looking for the next big fish to catch from the dock, and enjoying fresh baked pie at Blue Bonnet Cafe!

David and Traci Godwin purchased this House in 2012

Why David and Traci Godwin chose Horseshoe Bay

We were looking for a unique waterfront property that had great oak trees, was quiet but had easy access to the busier part of the lake.

What makes this House unique

Once we found the Pecan Creek inlet on LBJ we knew it was right. There are regularly paddle boarders and kayakers lazily cruising down the creek as well as the occasional ski boat and jet ski exploring or heading back to dock. The ability to easily swim / relax in the water off the back yard was really important to us. You cannot easily kayak or paddle board on the main body of the lake, but the creek being a no wake area makes it great for all calm water activities (SUP, kayaking, and fishing) with easy access to the main body for boating, jet ski's, skiing, and tubing!

                                                          Good times!

                                                          Jana W.

                                                          Rented for family to celebrate my mom’s 75th birthday. Loved the paddle boat, the peace and quiet, the open kitchen, the view, and the location. Neighbor was friendly, owner was available by phone to answer questions, and bedding and towels were plentiful. Made some wonderful memories! Not in house description: grill is charcoal, and there are 2 coffee makers...regular and keurig. Owner having issues with cable service, so cable wasn’t available. For that reason i’d deduct half a point, but review doesn’t accept fractions!

                                                          Good location, nice and calm and relaxing- wanted to stay longer!!

                                                          Laurie M.

                                                          We had a great time at our stay on the lake house! The pictures don't do the place justice. Loved having coffee on the dock early in the morning. The only reason I didn't give it four stars was because the daybed and trundle bed on the enclosed porch (which is air conditioned) might be ok for little ones who can sleep in any conditions, but it was too warm for my teenagers so they ended up on the couches in the living room. But everybody seemed fine and had a great time! We will definitely come back!!

                                                          House was comfortable!

                                                          It was an enjoyable time!

                                                          Wonderful place, was big enough for 11 people, with room. House is located in a great area!

                                                          Really enjoyed having the house so close to the lake! It was easy to swim and fish whenever we wanted!

                                                          Great Place To Relax!

                                                          This property is located on one of the creeks that feeds into Lake LBJ. It's a great location to paddle board or kayak in calm waters, while the lake is only a 5 - 7 minute cruise away by boat or jet ski. A nice patio with cover provides a quiet spot to relax. Local marinas will even deliver your rental to the property's boat dock! The house is a little old, but the owner has updated the bathrooms and does a good job of maintaining it. Cable TV was out for our entire visit, but wi-fi was functional so we entertained ourselves with Netflix. The owner was very responsive to our questions and problems once we got to the house - the A/C went out on our last day but David came by and got things working again. Overall we had a great time!
