|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
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. 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!)

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 and his 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 Godwin purchased this house in 2012
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.
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!
The house is warm and inviting. We had such a wonderful stay and being right on the canal was great! We were able to kayak and fish which was fun for all.
We would definitely rebook to stay at this lake retreat!
We were attending a conference at horseshoe bay and this house looked like a great opportunity to NOT be in another hotel. We cooked and played music, hung out on the back porch etc. All was well. There were some minor and when I say minor I mean minor issues with maintenance and the owner responded within a few hours. I was more letting them know so they could fix and rather than let the next guest have issues. All is all was a great place and a good value. Thanks again.
The house is located in a perfect area of the bay. It is very secluded and makes for a great weekend with close friends and family. The lake is roughly 10 minutes away on boat so going tubing and wakeboarding was a breeze. Inside the house is very accommodating and spacious. I had a great birthday weekend here!
We stayed at this great lake house with 5 kids and 3 adults. The layout suited us perfectly. The stand-up paddle boards were a huge hit and the arm of the lake behind the house was quiet and peaceful. We used the fire pit both nights and cooked out on the grill for lunch one day. The location is very convenient to area activities and attractions, and the owner accommodated all of our requests. If you're looking for an ultra-modern, luxurious place with all new fixtures, then keep looking. If you're looking for a casual bungalow with everything you need but nothing fancy, then you're in for a special treat. Couldn't recommend it more.
great place to stay. caught fish off dock in back yard. very relaxing. wildlife was all around, deer in the yard every day, owl's, egret's, turtles. quiet neighborhood, friendly neighbors, all the comforts of home, tv, computer, microwave, we had a great time.
