Great family place!
We loved our time at the lake house. There were six adults and our dogs. The dogs LOVED the fenced in huge area to run and explore. The local cats caused an issue or two but they quickly learned to get where the dogs could not.
We loved playing games at the kitchen table and pool, darts, and foosball in the separate game house.
We had one night of fire pit time before the rain came in. It was very nice sitting out under the trees with a nice pit area. The smores capped off our dinner that we grilled on the charcoal grill.
Sitting on the dock swinging in the swing reading a book was also something that was enjoyed. The dogs even ventured out to check it out a couple of times.
The two days of rain did put a damper on our outdoor activities but we were still able to enjoy the houses for game play, movie watching, and an indoor wood burning fire in the fireplace.
Overall, our stay was great. We enjoyed family time with plenty of space to spend together or divide up if we needed some alone time.
The question I give to the family at the end of each vacation is: Pros and Cons? and Would you stay here again?
The answer to stay again: 100% YES
Pros: Separate Game House, Nice family room and kitchen table space LOVED the yard (except when it rained and it had areas of standing water and under the trees was a mud pit - no fault of the owners...just a hard two days of rain), beds were comfortable, very homey (decorated, family pics, cozy)
Cons: Small kitchen (we like to cook together - it's a one person kitchen), caretaker house a bit too close, had to provide toiletries and cleaning supplies (but was informed prior to our trip so it was not a surprise)
Again - we would love to come again - maybe in the summer time to take advantage of water activities and fishing.
Thanks for sharing your home with our family.
Beautiful waterfront big lot
We were here to celebrate my parents 60th anniversary and it could not of been more perfect. There were 12 adults that stayed here and 10 more that came in on Saturday for the day to help celebrate. Everything was very neat and clean. Although the weather did not cooperate, between the house and bunkhouse/gameroom it was perfect. George and Vanessa (the caretaker) were very accommodating and everything went smoothly from check-in to check-out. Definitely would come back!
Was amazed at how easily my family settled in, as if it were our own home.
Cozy and yet spacious. Good play stuff for kids, great sitting places for adults. Very clean and pleasantly decorated. Different spaces so different groups can hang together, or you can just get away for a little bit. Feels like you are far from town, but access to stores is 15 min or less. Host and caretaker are personable and helpful but give you your privacy.
Air condition didn't work and house was very muggy
The central AC units did not work, they had installed 2 window unit AC units but they could not keep the house cool. It was very muggy and uncomfortable, everything was sticky and made it hard to sleep as even the best felt clammy. At least they had several fans but for what you pay AC should work. Every morning and every evening we had gnats swarming in the kitchen, we would clean them up several times a day so we could cook but they kept coming back and we did not have any windows or doors open. We reported it and were told oh it's just lake flies and they would take care of it but we never saw them. Had to throw out some of our food like bread as they got into it. I had to clean the coffee pot out and flush the tank area to get bugs out, then moved it to another room and wrapped it in towel so I could at least use in the morning. The game room is extremely small, nearly impossible to play pool. The yard and deck were very nice, we did catch about 20 catfish about 3 to 4 inches long off the end of the dock.
We really enjoyed our self
Fishing was good and lake was fantastic
No wifi in game room
Game room small
We loved it here. Everyone we dealt with throughout this whole process was so personable, from George to Vanessa and even the guy that rented us the boat. If we don't end up moving to Lake Livingston ourselves, we will definitely stay here again. It was PERFECT!
PROPERTY LOCATION: FROM HOUSTON THE PROPERTY IS APPROXIMATELY A 90 MINUTE DRIVE NORTHWARD AND FROM DALLAS IT IS AROUND A 3 HOUR DRIVE SOUTHWARD TO THIS LAKEFRONT. IT IS ABOUT A 60 MINUTE DRIVE NORTHWARD FROM GEORGE BUSH INTERCONTINENTAL AIRPORT TO THIS POPULAR VACATION SPOT.
Our guests come in an automobile and a few of them do not use their car during their stay. The lake house is within walking distance (1/3 mile) of a convenience store, waterfront cafe, marina/boat rental (jet skis, pontoon, and ski boat rentals), plus a public boat ramp and public parking. A Cajun restaurant is just a little distance farther.
