Space 3,200 sq. ft.
Property type house

About the property

4 Bedroom/3 Bathroom with Lake View


The Birdnest Lake House is a spacious 4 Bed/3 Bath updated home on beautiful Lake McQueeney. Located on a quiet street with easy access to Interstate 10 and Hwy 46.

Our two story home has 2 bedrooms/1 full bath downstairs and 2 bedrooms/2 full baths upstairs and can sleep 14 comfortably.

The main living space and newly updated kitchen is on the second floor. Entertaining is easy on the large granite island (seating 6) and family style table (seating 8). Relax and watch the big screen TV in the family room on comfortable leather couches or just enjoy the picturesque view of the lake.

When we remodeled our home in 2011, we created a second kitchen on the first floor with an additional seating area. Perfect for multiple families renting or when cooking for large groups. No problem with refrigerator space, we have 2!

Plenty of parking underneath the car port (room for 6 cars). For those bringing a boat or jet skis, we have a fully enclosed boat house with an electric lift. Our neighborhood's private boat launch is available for guests as well. We have a large fenced backyard (great for pets) and the lake is just steps away from the backdoor.

There is a spacious dock over the water with table and chairs provided. Not a 'sun seeker'? No problem, our home has a wrap around porch on the 2nd level that provides shade most of day. Great for enjoying your morning coffee or for watching the sun go down!

NOTE: For smaller groups, we would consider renting out just the lower level (2 bedroom/1 bath) that can sleep up to 10 comfortably. Access to all of the same amenities but no access to upper level of the home. Inquire with the owner for pricing and info on this option.

Birdnest Lake House- Best Christmas Stay Ever

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely wonderful for our very large family reunion for Christmas. There was plenty of room for all and 2 kitchens for cooking Christmas dinner. We loved the back yard and being right on the lake. The guys did a lot of fishing (catch and release of course), playing football in the backyard and just plain fun. I would highly recommend this home for anyone and Leah was wonderful with answering questions we had during our stay. It was perfect!

Fit our family of 5 children, 4 and younger, plus 6 adults very well

  • 5 of 5

Large open kitchen and family room provided plenty of room for meals and family time. The four bedrooms provided the quite times for naps and sleeping. Large lawn and dock were well used for play times. Many memories! We look forward to next years family vacation.

Woderful house for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The Birdnest Lake House is beautiful. As you walk in and up the stairs it welcomes you with a smile and a very peaceful feeling. Fora family reunion it was perfect. A garden for kids to run around in and the dock to jump into the river. Well located for visitor attractions.

A beautiful living area and wonderful well stocked kitchen. Sooo many cabinets - we were all very jealous!!!.

Our family of 13 slept very comfortably after fun-filled days. This house has so many good points.

Thank you Leah

About Leah Bird

My husband and I bought our home in 2006 after many years of enjoying summer visits on Lake McQueeney as a family. At the time, we lived in Houston with our twin daughters. We are now empty nested, retired and managing our real estate investments. Our goal is to rent our lake house during the spring and summer months and live in the home during the winter. We are very excited to share our home with others who want to enjoy the beautiful and fun Lake McQueeney!

Leah Bird purchased this house in 2006

Why Leah Bird chose Seguin

Our family has visited Lake McQueeney for many years during summer breaks while our girls were growing up. They learned how to water ski on Lake McQueeney over 20 years ago! When we decided to buy a lake house in 2006, there was no other lake to consider.

What makes this house unique

Some of our best times at our lake house have been in the mornings sitting out on the wrap around porch having coffee and enjoying the birds awake and sing. The early morning water is like 'glass' and very majestic. The beautiful view and the relaxing 'laid back' feeling you get as soon as you arrive is what made us fall in love with this home.
