vacation rental description

Located on the north shore of Canyon Lake, half-way between San Antonio and Austin in the beautiful Texas hill country, there is a special place waiting for you, your family and friends.

The five bedrooms sleep twenty-plus guests (assuming families with kids who sleep on upper bunks). The pool and adjacent shaded patio and sun-deck are perfect for swimming and lounging, and the back yard provides acres of play area for football, baseball, volleyball or even golf. The lakefront is NOT developed (no private docks are allowed on Canyon Lake), so it's a great place for walks along the shoreline.

The house has over 4,000 sq ft, all on one level. The arches out front and Saltillo tile in the entry, living room and kitchen give the house something of a 'Mexican Hacienda' atmosphere.

The entry leads directly to the main living/dining/party room (20 x 36 feet, with a 12 foot ceiling), which has floor-to-ceiling glass on the lake side, providing spectacular lake views. Outside the main room there is a 10 x 40 foot deck overlooking the pool, lake and the sunsets. The kitchen is adjacent to this "great room" and has two large refrigerators, two microwaves, etc, and enough pots & pans, dishes, glasses, etc. for large groups.

The master bedroom (20 x 20 feet, with a 12 foot natural wood beam ceiling and a new dark green tile floor) has a king size bed, a private bath, a walk-in closet and two smaller closets with mirrors on the doors to make the room seem even larger (plus another closet on the hall).

All the other rooms are carpeted. Three bedrooms have two bunk beds, each with a lower double bed and an upper single bed. The rooms range in size from 11 x 17 (with a 12' beam ceiling) to 16 x 19, and are usually the kids' favorites. One has beautiful lake views and an outside door to a small private lake-view deck.

The rear bedroom (15 x 24) has a king-size bed, a queen-size bed and an outside entrance leading to the driveway down to the lake. You can back your car right up to the door for easy loading and unloading.

In the center of the three rear bedrooms there is a large game room (21 x 22, with a 12' natural wood beam ceiling) with a 70-inch HDTV and a fold-up ping-pong table. The room has four large windows overlooking the lake, and angles out like a ship's bow. Kids can hang out there, and you won't even hear their loud music in the front of the house.

HDTV Heaven! The house has seven large-screen high-definition TVs, all connected to DirecTV satellite, so guests in each room can choose the shows they want to watch, and all have attached DVD, VHS, CD and AM/FM receivers with quality speakers (JBL, Bose, KLH, etc). Six of the TVs are 60", with one  70" in the game room. The house has a library with over 500 VHS tapes, including classics and most of the Disney videos for the kids. Bring your own DVDs, and watch your favorite programs in AMAZING large-screen HDTV!

There are five central air conditioning units, and you can set the temperature in different parts of the house independently. All rooms have ceiling fans and portable "box" fans for extra cooling. There are two fireplaces for winter guests. The utility room has a washer and dryer - great for bathing suits, towels, etc.

The house is located on what once was an island (a causeway now links it to the mainland), on a quiet circle street with no drive-through traffic, and very little traffic of any kind. There is a private concrete driveway down to the lake, and plenty of parking for cars, SUVs, trucks, boat trailers, etc.

activities and attractions in Canyon Lake Texas

Water Sports

You can launch light craft (canoes, kayaks, inflatable boats, flat-bottom boats, etc) right on the property. There is a free municipal boat launching ramp (less than one mile away) for jet-skis and larger boats. Canyon Lake Marina (5 miles) rents sailboats and speed-boats, jet-skis, and “party barges” by the hour/day. The Guadalupe River (10 miles) is famous for “tubing” (floating down the river in an inner tube), and tube rentals come with free pickup service to return you to your car. “Schlitterbahn” in New Braunfels (25 miles) may be the greatest water park in the country. Kids love it, and you will too.

Tourism

San Antonio (50 miles - the Alamo, river walk, Spanish missions, etc.) and Austin (55 miles - University of Texas, state capitol, Barton Springs pool, etc.) are well-known destinations. Both have an abundance of theatres, art museums, sports, world-class dining and entertainment (comedy and music).

The Texas hill country has many quaint towns that welcome tourists, including Wimberley (15 miles) and Fredericksburg (50 miles). For Willie Nelson fans, Luckenbach, Texas is just five miles outside Fredericksburg, and is quite unique. The LBJ ranch, home of former president Lyndon B. Johnson (40 miles) offers historical tours.

New Braunfels (25 miles) and San Marcos (23 miles) both have good municipal golf courses and tennis courts. San Marcos also has “Outlet Malls” that are favorites with shoppers. Gruene (pronounced “Green”), just outside New Braunfels, is a historic mill town on the Guadalupe River, and has the oldest dance hall in Texas, with live entertainment on weekends.

Wildlife

A herd of deer live on the island, and since they have never been hunted, are quite tame. You may see foxes, rabbits, Osprey (sea hawks), a Great Horned Owl, and dozens of species of other birds. Ducks, geese, blue heron and a variety of waterfowl make frequent visits to the lake, depending on season.

Fishing

Canyon Lake (on the Guadalupe River) is mostly known for its catfish, and the best way to catch them is with "trot lines". There are many other species (bass, croppie, sunfish) that may be caught from boats or the shore. In winter, the river just south of Canyon Dam is one of the best places in Texas for fly fisherment to catch "the elusive trout".
