Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Richard –

Thanks for the response. I just received the note today.

Keep our friends in mind for next summer. They really like the house and would love to rent it for those 2 months. And, if you ever decide to sell the house, I think we might have a couple families that might be interested. Every time we bring a family to the Blue Lake Community, they absolutely fall in love with it. As we both know, what’s not to love about Blue Lake?

We would love to rent the house this Fall, but we are out of town 2-3 weekends a month for soccer, so I don’t think we would get to use it enough to justify the expense.

This is our last weekend with the house. We have really enjoyed it and it is clean and ready for you guys when you come in August.

Thank you!

Great house in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (4 kids) stayed at this house for 1 month in 2015. It had everything we needed, and the open kitchen, dining, living was nice for our large family. The house has been updated inside, and the living room has large windows and sliding doors opening up to the local golf course with whitetail deer everywhere. There is a park very close with lake access and the neighborhood is quiet and clean. The quaint town of Marble Falls is a short drive away. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Richard!

Great house in a great community!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is perfect for a family that wants a getaway in a wonderful community. Close to boat ramp, lake beach, and right off the golf course. Great place for morning walks and the community is very friendly. We enjoyed sitting on the back patio watching the deer and golfers go by. The house is very comfortable and well kept. The owner is very easy to get a hold of and work with. We can't wait to rent again!

A place to relax

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house as a present for my husband for his birthday. We had a great stay, the boat doc being so close made it easy for us to get on the water anytime we wanted to. The house was cozy and has a great view of the golf course and tons of deer. I highly recommend this house to anyone that wants peace and quite with amazing views. The owner is very easy to talk to and is very prompt at answering any questions.

Upon arrival, the property was not well maintained or clean. Many things did not work. The weather turned cold several times and the house was always cold due to a very drafty front door and bedroom windows. The kitchen lacked some basic essentials, which we had to purchase. The Blue Lake area and golf course was nice, but the 40-mile round trip to get groceries became a real chore. We would not recommend this property to a relative or friend.

Owner's Response: In addition to great moderate weather, it is unreasonable to not expect a few severe cold fronts during the Jan-April months of your stay. I am surprised this wasn’t researched before your visit. We noticed that you left most of the windows open or unlatched when you left, which likely contributed to the draft you report. There is a full-seal storm door on the front door (did you keep that closed?), and NEW double pane sliders at the other exits. We have the house professionally cleaned and I would have appreciated the opportunity to have them, or a different company, come back to clean it to your satisfaction. We will do this for any VRBO client. With regard to location, it is a beautiful country drive 15 miles in one direction, and 16 miles in the other to the major grocery stores (HEB). An excellent, upscale regional grocery (Jamail’s) is just 5 miles down the road, as well as the post office, 7-11, and ACE hardware. Again, I am surprised that you didn’t research the Horseshoe Bay area better. I am sorry that the Texas Highland Lakes, the Texas Hill Country, the private golf and rural lake setting, and the weather came up short on your snowbird expectations.

Texas Retreat!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay, the home is very spacious and well stalked. Loved the view of the golf course and walking distance to the park, basket ball/volley ball court, and boat launch, I only wish I had a boat. The neighbors are very hospitable and the community is safe and clean. We needed a place to ease into our move to Austin, and this home worked well. However this home would make a great family retreat for vacations or family reunions. Lots of wild life around and it was an easy drive to Marble Falls for supplies. The owner is very attentive and accommodating. Thanks!

The Blue Lake Community is One of Texas’ Hidden Treasures.

Blue Lake property owners enjoy a quality of life often overlooked by other people. Our community is nestled in the Texas Hill Country. Our mild winters provide a haven from most harsh cold weather and the heating costs associated with it.

Our community sits on Lake LBJ on the Colorado River. Lake LBJ is one of a chain of lakes known as the Highland Lakes. It is a constant level lake providing the best water for swimming, jet skiing, wake boarding, water skiing, boating and fishing. Our hot summers and lake access provides a recreational playground for family fun and relaxation.

Blue Lake is a golfer’s paradise. We own our own 9-hole golf course that is constantly ranked as one of the best courses in Texas. We are a short 15 minute drive from the Horseshoe Bay Resort and its 3 top ranked golf courses as well.

Blue Lake offers the convenience of both metropolitan shopping and the relaxed lifestyle of country living. Austin is approximately a one-hour drive and San Antonio is an hour and half drive from Blue Lake. You can have a leisurely shopping afternoon in the “Big City” and enjoy dinner in the quiet of the countryside – all in a day.

In addition, Hill Country Galleria in Bee Cave offers a wealth of shopping and dining opportunities and is only 30 minutes away.

Blue Lake has easy access to robust and thriving Hill Country communities including Marble Falls, Johnson City, Llano, Burnet, Fredericksburg and Blanco .

We are far from being a backwater community. Aside from its natural beauty, quick access to health care facilities and clinics is available and local affordable shopping abounds. It is country living at its best.
