  • Perfect house. Perfect location.


    We were a group of 6 (4 adults and 2 kids) and we had a fabulous stay. We had to find a new place quickly after our first place didn’t work out. The owner was so nice and got us all setup quickly. This house had everything we wanted. There was enough room for us to spread out and have our own space. The view was spectacular. Fishing off the dock proved to be plentiful. The firepit was so lovely to sit around at night. I cannot say enough about it. We would happily return in the future.

  • Wedding gathering


    My family and my best friend and her family stayed here for my daughters wedding. It was plenty large enough to host all of us plus gave me and my best friend plenty of space to bake her wedding cake and grooms cupcakes while still being apart of the conversations within the main living area. Had everything that we needed and was a great weekend.

  • Amazing lake house!


    My family loves exploring different lake houses around Texas. This one didn’t disappoint us at all. This is a beautiful lakefront property. The kitchen has everything you would need and plenty of storage space. The entire house is amazing with all the excellent amenities. We had plenty of space and enjoyed sitting on the back porch and on the upper level of the dock. I would definitely rent this house again! The owner Cary is the best. We really love the way she makes sure that everything is perfect and that you have a great experience, and we did! Thanks again you are the bomb!!!

  • Amazing Lake Front Property


    Summarizing the high quality of our experience is difficult. I'll start with the responsiveness and assistance of our hosts. Over the top. Always answered whenever we called or texted with questions. We are a family of 11 ranging in age from 8 to 68. Everyone was impressed. My wife is so particular about cleanliness. She was delighted. The rooms were all so comfortable and well appointed. There is no feature forgotten. The lake view is spectacular from inside, on the porch or on top of the amazing deck. Are you into electronics - this place has got it. Massive TV in the great room as well as every bedroom in the house. Are you bringing a boat like we did - perfect spot. The private dock is large and supported our boat well. This place was a great place to swim in the lake and feel sheltered. If you want to cook, all the utensils are there - better than what we have at home. If you need 5 bedrooms, look no further. This place is perfect. We'll be back.

  • Beautiful House and property


    The house is exactly how it is described in the listing. The pictures are very accurate. The beds are comfortable with nice sheets and plenty of pillows. They supplied plenty of paper towells, toilet paper, shampoo, creme rinse, body soap, hand soap, dishwashing soap, and trash bags. The kitchen was well supplied with everything you needed. The pots and pans were the best we have seen at any property we have rented. There was plenty of room at the 2 nice size tables for all of the family. The house was very nicely decorated. The dock was awesome. We were able to use the whips to tie up our boat. They had plenty of shade with tables and chairs on the deck. The adults and kids loved the swing from the 2nd level deck. The fish cleaning station was fantastic! We caught plenty of fish from our boat but the kids used worms and caught catfish from the bank and pier. We had a wonderful, relaxing week. Cary-Elisa was an awesome communicator and left a gift basket for us.
