What some of
our guests have to say:
"We had a
ball! The house is fabulous and we will definitely go back! The weather
was perfect and we really enjoyed the deck and the lake. We were so
comfortable, we didn't want to leave! The house was spotless and had
everything we needed. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with
us (we can't understand why you wouldn't be there all the time)!"
- K. J., Ponder, TX
"We really enjoyded our visit. That deck and view are outstanding and it was fun seeing parts of Texas we had only heard about from friends. The lake house is only minutes from hiking in Inks Lake Park, Longhorn Caverns, Marble Falls, Burnet, many wineries, and a nice day trip to Fredericksburg, all areas we wanted to visit. Some nice golf courses are also nearby. We definitely want to visit again!"
- J.M., Houston, TX
Thank you so much for letting us use your lake home. We had a really good weekend. I really appreciate you mailing me my shirt back. We left so quickly
I just plain forgot! You have an extremely beautiful and peaceful
place on Lake LBJ, you are really blessed and I was honored to get
to spend some time there."
- T. K., Eastland, TX
the use of your awesome house. The huge deck was amazing; perfect
for celebrating a bachelor party. We made use of the dock by pulling
a boat right up to the backyard (pretty cool). Although only an hour
from Austin, the lifestyle is a world apart. By the way, if someone
finds a platinum mens wedding ring, my friend sure would be
grateful. So would his wife."

Further comments on our 4th BR: If you've been on a cruise, this is similar in size and feel (low ceiling, sliding door) to a basic stateroom. This room mostly survived the remodel when we cut out sections of the trailer part of the home in the 1980's, however we did put in a full-sized window facing the front yard. The built-in dresser and closets visible in the picture were left intact. This makes for a great kid's bedroom.
