What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
What is not unique about this space? Every minor detail was planned and well thought out. From the boat house with an extra large deck space to sunbathe and rafts anchored off the dock. large rocking chairs sit off of a western style porch with a log picnic table and a large gas grill. A few steps away is a huge gas fire pit for family campfires . A speed boat and pontoon boat are available for rental with a captain.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Amazing property with fantastic amenities, great value for money
We vacationed in this property in summer of 2018 and the whole group just loved staying here. It is unbelievably big and the number of things kids and adults could do without competing with each other (especially the board games) is amazing
Kevin (the owner) has friendly neighbors who can come save the day for you if you get locked out or give you a friendly nudge if the party gets louder. It is great to have friends who care.
It is a small town, so if you run into any car issues, you might not get a lot of help. After the vacation, as we all were leaving, I realized I had a flat tire and unfortunately Elon Musk did not account for this. No one around was willing to touch a Tesla and Kevin was a compassionate host who let me stay an additional night at no additional cost. Otherwise, I would have had to sleep in my car with no other options around :)
2 things that you might want to be aware of are:
1. Internet (wifi) is bad (Plan on not having to use it)
2. There is an additional charge called - Additional Guest Fee of $500 that you will see in the quote. It is not a fee that will be charged if you have more than 20 guests. It is a fee that is charged irrespective of number of guests. Just be aware and budget for it
Stunning. Amazing property. We loved it. We will be back.
long weekend at the lake
Beautiful house! Wonderful owners! Ideal lake getaway for group of families.
Although the weather wasn't perfect, the place was awesome. Great people to deal with and plenty of comfortable room. Many amenities inside and out. We will go back for a return vacation.
Perfect Family Lakehouse
Even though it rained the first two days of our stay, none of us really cared because the house is so amazing! The upstairs game room is perfect to keep kids entertained, and they loved the huge bunk room. There was lots of space downstairs to relax, and the kitchen is big enough for several people to cook at the same time. It seemed like there was a big screen TV in every room of the house. The dock is great for swimming or fishing (we caught lots of catfish). I brought my wake boat and the dock lift was perfect for making quick trips on the lake convenient. Kevin, the owner, was very responsive any time I had a question about something. I would highly recommended a vacation here and we hope to be back again soon.
AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, Perfect Space for a large family getaway!
Our family arrived with 6 adults and 8 children for our annual Lake getaway. This was our first time on Lake Richland Chambers. On our way to the home, we decided to extend our vacation a day, we just knew 4 days was not going to be long enough.
The home is just like the pictures, beautiful and well designed. I think we were the first family to use the newly remodeled "bunk room" that had 4 queen bunk beds, brand new and perfect for our 8 kids (ages 8-16). The upstairs had been remodeled a bit from the pictures, but made it even better for our kids. They only came downstairs to eat! At the bottom of the stairs is a door to keep the noise to a minimum, a parents dream come true.
The main living area was spacious and allowed for everyone to have their own space to read, watch TV, or work (yes some can't leave it behind). The kitchen was well stocked, you could find just about anything you need, and it was spacious to feed all 14 of us at one time. There was also a beautiful formal living and dining space that we hardly used.
The newly remodel "back house" was also stunning and well designed. Next time we will bring the grandparents, it would be perfect for those that need to escape the young, busy family chaos for an afternoon nap or early bedtime.
The outside was amazing. The yard is well manicured and the firepit is perfect for the family smores night, although it was too hot for us to do every night.....Texas in July is just hot. We did enjoy the outdoor space in the morning with our coffee, before the sun warmed everything up and the kids were ready to hit the lake.
You can see the lake from most spaces in the house, great to watch the activities after you were tired of the sun. The boat dock was also great for transitioning in and out of the boat (we have our own) or just simple fishing. The lake was a jewel, for the whole time we were there, we only saw 3 other boats, giving us a safe, open space for tubing and skiing with the kids.
The wifi (or mifi) is a bit sketchy out there. If you are going to work and need reliable wifi you may have some frustration, so just plan to go and be on vacation and enjoy your family! I enjoyed the break from the electronic, immediate reply world.
We are already planning when we can go back. Book it, you will not be disappointed.
