Rental Houses on Lake LBJ

Lake LBJ is named after former President Lyndon B. Johnson, a Texas native, and is one of several lakes along the Texas Colorado River that constitute what are called the Highland Lakes. It's located in Texas Hill Country in central Texas about 60 miles from Austin. Twenty-three miles in length, the lake has several small communities such as Granite Shoals and Horseshoe Bay on its shores. One of Lake LBJ's most attractive features is that the water level is always maintained at a constant level, and there are many rental houses near or directly on the waterfront. The vast majority offer amenities such as air conditioning, washing machines and internet access. They also commonly feature outdoor grills for lakeside picnics and barbecues.

Water Sports

It comes as no surprise that being on the water is the number one pursuit in the Lake LBJ area; businesses that rent aquatic sports equipment are plentiful. You and your family and friends can flock to the lake to enjoy:

  • Swimming
  • Boating
  • Sailing
  • Water-skiing
  • Jet-skiing
  • Tubing
  • Wakeboarding
Lake LBJ Marina and Yacht Club

Many of the rental houses have boat docks, but there's also Lake LBJ Marina, one of several on the lake that offer you boat slips, dry dock storage, food service and equipment rentals.

Fishing

Anglers of all skill levels enjoy coming to the lake for the fine crappie, largemouth bass and white bass fishing, as well as to lure flathead, blue and channel catfish.

Bird Watching

The Highland Lakes area in general sees plenty of migrating bird species. Great Blue Herons, Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, pelicans, ducks and geese are often spotted; the American Bald Eagle spends the winter on nearby Lake Buchanan.

Golf

Not every pastime in the area takes place on the water. Golfing is very popular and usually comes with beautiful lake views. Blue Hill Golf has a shorter 9-hole course that both skilled and novice golfers will enjoy. Legends Golf Course in Kingsland has 18 holes on 200 acres, and there are three championship courses in Horseshoe Bay, Apple Rock, Slick Rock and Ram Rock, all designed by golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr.

Hiking

For another change of pace activity, you can travel about 45 minutes west to Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. The star attraction here is the eponymous rock, a huge pink granite dome that serious hikers and rock climbers can scale to the very top for spectacular views of Hill Country. There are also easier hiking trails, and for any visitors willing to stay until after dark, the nighttime views of the sky in this rural area are unrivaled.

When to Visit

Texas Hill Country's winters are relatively mild, with temperatures occasionally below freezing and highs reaching up into the 50s. Summers are hot, with highs frequently surpassing the 100-degree mark. On the other hand, hot weather is great if you are practicing water sports, and there's usually a cooling breeze coming off the lake. Some rainfall can be expected almost every month, but May and June are especially wet. Spring is the time to visit to see wildflowers such as Texas Paintbrush and Bluebonnets in bloom.

Reaching Lake LBJ

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is about an hour away from Lake LBJ. Private sedans, SUVs or limousines are one option for getting to the lake; some shuttles are shared and others offer non-stop service. All the major rental car companies have a desk at Austin-Bergstrom. Three different taxi cab companies pick you up at this airport's arrival terminal, and Austin-Bergstrom also allows Lyft and Uber drivers to pick up fares on airport property.

The house is awesome and very elegant. The amenities are fantastic with a hot tube, party games and waterfront dock. We took our boat out 3 out of the 4 days we stayed their and had a great time in the water. The neighbors are friendly and give plenty of privacy. We linked up with a party across the lake for drinks and a good time. For 10 people we all slept comfortably within the space. The house has everything you need to have a good time, whether to party or relax! The location is the best! At the intersection of Lake LBJ and Colorado, great Golf around the corner, bars nearby and HEB if you want to cook out at the House. Thanks a lot for letting us in your home Mary and Todd. Hope to see you again soon!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      From start to finish, renting this lake home was a wonderful experience. The moment we walked in, everything about the home was inviting, right down to the personal touches left by the homeowners. Even with 17 people, we never felt crowded. Each of us had plenty of room to do our own thing, whether it was escaping the heat in the frosty A/C, relaxing on the covered patio while watching football on the outdoor TV, or floating with our ice cold beverages while listening to the music next to the dock. YES, the outdoor speakers can play on the patio and/or the dock simultaneously, meaning you can play your college football game on the TV while people on the dock listen to music instead!!! Mealtime was made easier by the FULLY stocked kitchen. Every pot, pan, utensil, knife, and kitchen gadget we could have wanted was available for our use. It didn't matter if one person was cooking or five of us were throwing sandwiches together before loading up on the boat, we were able to move around easily without constantly bumping into anyone else. Having no shortage on storage space, we were able to stow away all the groceries needed to feed 17 people for 3 days. The bedrooms were spacious and nicely furnished. I didn't hear a single complaint about any of the beds. It’s not often you hear full grown men say they had a great night sleep on a bunk bed. As an extra nice touch, the bunk room also had a wet bar so we could store drinks upstairs as well as down. The tankless water heaters were a must with such a big group. Always having hot water was impressive! As stunning as the inside of the home was, the outdoor patio was equally amazing. With enough comfortable seating for everyone, the patio immediately became the go-to gathering place to hang out. Since the grill was built into the patio and hooked directly into the gas line, our resident chef/grill master could grill while still hanging out with everyone else (as opposed to having a grill away from the patio, out in the yard). Grilling wasn’t such a chore since it could be done while watching football and laughing at would-be ping pong champions. The dock was really nice, complete with boat lifts, Jet Ski lifts, kayaks, and even a few life jackets to use, if needed. Again, the outdoor speakers were so nice to have. We didn’t have to worry about carting a portable Bluetooth speaker around everywhere we went. This is by far the nicest home we have stayed in on LBJ! Great place to make great memories!!!!
