Immaculate waterfront retreat w/ a private pool, dock, & enclosed yard

Gather together for a safe family retreat at the astonishing four-acre Benson Retreat! Combining a main house with a pristine cottage, this property boasts an airy ambiance, ample natural light, and all of the comforts of home, ensuring that no one will have any trouble kicking back and slipping into total relaxation. Start each day with your morning coffee out on the furnished decks or at the dock as Dickinson Bayou flows gently by. The entire property is fenced, and you'll have no neighbors during your stay. When the temperature rises, sweet relief can be found in your private pool with plenty of room to suntan between refreshing dips. After full days of fun, enjoy two full kitchens with the equipment you need to prepare meals for the whole gang. Not to mention the free WiFi and large flatscreen TVs that allow everyone to get online or enjoy favorite movies or TV shows. When it's time to turn in for the night, you and your guests will have seven fantastic bedrooms to choose from - three in the cottage and four in the main house.

What's nearby:
Dickinson Bayou is in a fantastic location due to it being roughly midway between Houston and Galveston! Some must-see attractions include Moody Gardens, the Strand Historic District, and the Pleasure Pier with the ability to easily get to the Kemah Boardwalk and Downtown Aquarium. Houston offers attractions including NASA, the Houston Zoo, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, and the Museum of Arts. There is a public boat launch close by for the ability to enjoy boating, fishing, jet skiing, wakeboarding, and more. And don’t miss out on visiting Main Street Bistro in League City, Topwater Grill, and Pier 6 Seafood in San Leon, TX on the bay. Also, we recommend Mosquito Cafe in Galveston.

I cannot say enough about this amazing home! Our weekend was peaceful, serene and the privacy was an added bonus! We loved being able to fish just a few steps away.
