Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent five wonderful days at this home on Lake Livingston. The layout of the home with it's large bedrooms and expansive deck; the game house which provided the kids some privacy and non-water fun; the large grill for each of our evening cookouts; and the wonderful dock for swimming, fishing and tying up the jet skis fit our needs perfectly. Prior to vacationing there, the owner was very responsive to my numerous inquiries. The homes and property were very clean and towels, linens, cooking utencils, etc were abundant. The small grocery/restaurant a short walk away was convenient for our last minute needs. The sunset alone is reason for us to visit again next year.

best of the best

I am so late in writing this review but I am still thinking about what a wonderful place this was to meet our friends from Arizona. The house was most excellent and we really enjoyed the place. Being from Maryland we were looking for a nice warm spot to spend time with friends. Our luck was that we enjoyed the coldest early December that they have seen in "years", but we didn't let that ruin our stay. They guys even fished in the bitter cold and had some success.
The home is well stocked and clean. The game room was also a huge plus since it was cold outside.
George was awesome to work with, he replied to any questions quickly and even made arrangements for us to check in a little earlier than the normal check in time.
We totally enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again, in warm weather, so the guys can fish and the girls can enjoy that wonderful deck.
This is not the first homeaway.com rental we have booked, it is however; the best yet. Oh, I can't NOT mention the wonderful restaurant about a block and a half away, seriously like dining in someone's home. Everything was homemade and delicious. The staff there was so friendly and attentive. Each time before we would leave they would let us know what is on the evening and next days menu.
We also attended the Church on the Lake. While they didn't seem friendly, no one greeted or spoke to us, it was a fabulous service and we really enjoyed it. Great bunch of talented musicians and singers.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for a 4 day, 3 night getaway for my wife's birthday. Upon arriving, Jimmy greeted us and pretty much gave us the ins and outs of the place, the town, and the assurance that he was there in case we needed anything.
The decorations in the house added to the ambiance of the very large lakefront property. Everything was in proper working order and we encountered nothing that ever gave us any problems during our stay. The family pictures in the living room area were a nice touch as well.
The game room was sort of the teens dungeon. Dart board, pool table, foosball table, several bunkbeds, and full bath allowed them a sort of privacy of their own while not being but about 50' from the main house.
A large portion of the yard (immediately in front of the house) had ample space for us to set up a volleyball net and still had plenty of space left over. The picnic area, which is located immediately in front of the game room, is almost fully shaded during the daytime hours and allowed us to be outside during the daytime hours without being beaten down on by the sun.
The pier/boat dock was also one of the more populated areas during our stay. The water around the dock seems to be around 6'-8' in depth at the time of our stay, so provided for some excellent swimming.
Overall, everyone complimented the place and truly enjoyed their time there. Can't wait to be back.

Wonderful Place for our Youth Group

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at the lakehouse. Mr Partin has been so wonderful to our group! The house was clean and in good repair. The kids LOVE the gameroom, hours of fun!!! We also took advantage of renting a pontoon boat to better enjoy all the lake had to offer. The local marina was also kind and helpful. We have taken our youth many places, but we have chosen to return here!

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
My family and friends have been visiting this lakehouse for 15+ years--sometimes multiple visits in a year. My husband and I were married on the sundeck of the boathouse 5 years ago. We have never had anything but a great stay at the house. The house is great for a large group (10-12). There is plenty of room on the deck to enjoy morning coffee and listen to the birds. There is a firepit, a grill, horseshoes and a big yard to play outdoor games. Sadly, we never have time for everything! Now that the kids are older, the gameroom gives them a place to play away from the adults. The mornings are calm and peaceful on this quiet part of the lake. The evenings are relaxing as you watch the sunset and then stargaze or fish! The owner and caretaker are always extremely helpful and very accommodating. Another great lake weekend is complete!

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here in January 2013. The kids loved the game room and the large outdoor area. Everything was very clean and well cared for. We loved all of the outdoor seating and are looking forward to going back in warmer weather so that we can take advantage of that more. The boat house was awesome with a wonderful swing on the upper level. I was so surprised to see that the outdoor grill was super clean. We enjoyed a dinner of hot dogs and s'mores on one cold evening. The neighborhood was very quiet and beautiful for our daily walks. We had one incidence where the washing machine leaked but the caretakers were quick to respond and got it fixed immediately. The only thing I wish the owners would provide (even at an extra expense) would be internet. Although I do like to get away from it all, my kids are avid gamers and would love to be able to connect with their friends while on vacation. I would recommend this place to anyone who has kids. We're looking forward to revisiting this property in the summer when we can swim and maybe jet ski on the lake. Thanks for making this property available.

Location

Activity and Interests

Distinctive is a good description of this peninsula where the property is located. This lakefront home is in Indian Hills Estates which has very minor traffic providing peace and quiet to our visiting guest along with safety for those wanting to bicycle, walk, or jog. This area on the lake is endowed with beautiful scenery and a view of the lake while you take the 3 mile adventure around the vicinity. You will possibly meet some of the friendly residents when you leave the lake house to explore this island-like' environment.

Lake Livingston State Park (within 8 minutes) offers picnicking, unsupervised lake swimming, biking, nature study, fishing, horseback riding, and swimming pool (Memorial Day-Labor Day). You might consider a round trip to the park from the property if you like to use a bicycle to exercise.

Mill Ridge Golf Course has a 9 hole course which winds around the historic Ogletree Sawmill which was founded in 1902. The course is very unique in that it also incorporates a pulpwood yard and an abandoned right-of-way railroad into its design.

Lake Livingston is in Polk County which offers 1,097 square miles of rolling hills and majestic pine forest. The lake and county are part of the Big Ticket National Preserve. Texas' oldest Indian Reservation of Alabama Coushatta Indians is located in the county. They have an event calendar, campgrounds, and a gift shop with unique souvenir items.

Other activities: Houston is within a 90 minute drive north and Dallas is only a 3 hour drive southward to this ultimate vacation spot. It is just walking distance of your morning breakfast cafe. A convenience store, Cajun restaurant, marina, boat rental (jet skis, pontoon, and ski boat rentals), plus parking and a public boat ramp are at the same location only 1/3 mile distance from the lakefront home. Wal-Mart, HEB, Brookshire's, dollar stores, small shops, and eating establishments (pizza, BBQ, seafood, burger, sandwich, Mexican, Tex-Mex, and a couple restaurants) are located within approximately 10 minutes.

Notes:

  • Open Boathouse: You can easily operate the 2 electric lifts at the private boathouse. The larger lift will accommodate pontoon, tri-hulls, or V-hull boats. The 2nd lift will accommodate 1 or 2 jet skis (jet skis, pontoon, and ski boat rentals plus public boat ramp are within walking distance of the property). A swim ladder and a sand bottom is ideal for water lovers. Maybe you would prefer to listen to music, read, and or bask in the sun at the grass shore or on top of the elevated sundeck. There is good fishing (black bass, white bass, crappie, striper, perch, and catfish) at the fishing pier. The boathouse area has light so you can enjoy nighttime boating, fishing, or just the serenity of the lake. You can have a midnight party on the pier or sundeck that your family or friends will remember for a long time. ALLOW NO MORE THAN 10 INDIVIDUALS AT ONE TIME ON THE SUNDECK. SWIMMERS NEED TO BE SUPERVISED. THERE ARE NO LIFEGUARDS ON DUTY. Private Gamehouse: The gamehouse is a separate structure and approximately 20 feet to the side of the main home. It has a pool table, foosball, dart game, HDTV with Dish Network, 3 bunk beds, sofa, and a full bath. The house is air-conditioned and heated for year-round use. The game house also has plump pillows, quality linens, and blankets. Bathroom towels and washcloths are also included. You will long remember the panoramic view, at certain times, of the lake from the game house deck. Barbecue Area: This waterfront property is large enough to entertain a separate picnic area among the numerous pines. Within this area, ideal for large groups or family reunions, is a picnic table, mobile charcoal grill, and campfire area for your outdoor pleasure. The two sitting swings, which face the water, are perfect for conversation and reflection. The well manicured grass area between the shore and main house is large enough for your group or family to play badminton, horseshoes (already in place), or croquet. You will need to provide your own game equipment.
