Space 3,200 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


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!

Lots to do at our home whether it be boating, fishing, swimming, or just laying in the hammock. We are in close proximity to New Braunfels and Gruene, TX for daily excursions or to pick up last minute shopping needs.

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.

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.

Awesome lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful trip. The property is great. It has lots of room for parking vehicles. The house is very nice, clean, spacious, and well setup for big groups, very comfortable. The yard is a good size and fenced. The dock setup is also well done, we brought our boat and spent most of our time in the water. Every year we rent a lakehouse and this has been the best to date. This place is very well maintained all around and it shows the owner takes great pride in it. Thank you.

Wonderful house for large family!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generation family gathering normally takes place at the beach. This year we chose to go to a lakehouse. It was an awesome vacation. We were able to rent a pontoon boat that was referred to us by the owner. The kids loved everything and kept saying it was the best vacation ever. The space was excellent, large parking area, quick response on any issues, extremely well stocked kitchen, beautiful yard, close to New Braunsfel, went to a drive in movie, and the list goes on and on. We loved having 2 kitchens (2 frigs). Not sure if we will ever make it back to the beach!
