Great experience, the backyard is also very comfortable with a lot of seating areas. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

House was so comfortable and decorated so nicely. Loved sitting in the back yard either by the water or on the back patio. Nice place to go to just get away and enjoy! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Awesome property for a weekend get-away! Beautiful property with all the amenities. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Cathy L. Oct 2020
We totally enjoyed the peaceful property, with nice outdoor furniture to relax on the deck or boathouse. Inside the house, it was furnished very nice with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and all was very clean. Very pleased with our stay of 4 nights. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

What a beautiful property. My husband and son fished all weekend. The rope swing was a hit with my son as well. We were able to relax and just take it easy for a bit. The house was clean and beautiful. We never had any issues. Check in and check out were a breeze. Thank you again for a great stay!

The place was great inside and out! Decor was comfort and super cute. It was a bird themed house and everything madd it feel cozy and comfy. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Courtney M. Sep 2020
We enjoyed our stay a lot. The only negative was the outdoor grill was really dirty and we were looking forward to grilling burgers. We made due with fixing them inside so it was fine. The house was really cute and our boys had fun fishing, using the paddle boat and board and swinging in the tree swing.

The house was perfect. The property is heavily wooded with a well manicured lawn and great water views from the master bedroom, den and decks. The paddle boat was a nice touch. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Alicia D. Aug 2020
My family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Birdsong Cottage. The house was clean and comfortable with a great layout for the family. We loved the deck; it was so pleasant to sit outside and drink coffee or eat breakfast in the morning while looking out at the water and gorgeous yard. The kitchen was well-equipped and we used the gas grill as well. My favorite place was the boathouse, where I enjoyed sitting in the evenings with music and a glass of wine. The paddleboat and rope swing were also a hit. My youngest son said he wanted to stay forever! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Wesley P. Aug 2020
We loved the place. The location was great and the place was amazing. The sitting area near the water was a perfect spot to hangout. My daughters loved fishing. We would definitely come back. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Miranda S. Aug 2020
This property was incredibly clean and well maintained! All the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked - we had everything we needed for a very relaxing `momcation`. We had an issue with the A.C. when we first arrived, but the issue was completely resolved within the hour. We were all very impressed!! The property manager was very nice and was easy to contact/communicate by with. We are looking forward to returning again for future `momcations` and I, personally, already have a trip booked to return with my family! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Shelley S. Jul 2020
Very cute house, comfortable beds, beautiful shaded yard with boat house and water access to a quiet tributary, minutes from open water. Lots of outdoor seating/decks. Kitchen was adequately appointed, compared to other VRBO rentals we`ve had. Very clean! Lots of extras- DVD collection, games, books, paddleboard, paddle boat, hammock, even a bottle of wine greeted us upon arrival. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Patrick P. Jul 2020
Location was ideal. I realize where the name of property came from, so many Cardinals and many other species to observe. The property had everything we needed for amenities and was extremely comfortable. I highly recommend this property for a quite visit. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Dianne O. Jul 2020
This place was even more beautiful than the pictures! The deck attached to the house was great for all of us to gather while grilling dinner, and once the baby was asleep we gathered on the patio attached to the shed in the water for evening cocktails and morning coffee. The yard was perfect because it gave us plenty of room to play with my granddaughter without worrying about her falling in the water. Very peaceful and relaxing. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kate B. Jul 2020
What a beautiful property that was much needed and enjoyed! The house had everything and then some that we needed. The outside backyard was absolutely gorgeous and shaded so we could sit outside even in the hottest parts of the day. The paddle boat was a hit with the teenagers. We will definitely stay again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Nice stay with family and friends. Tucked in a cove not too far from the big body of water. Quiet and peaceful This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Property was in a quiet but ideal location. Fishing for the kids and easy access to lake made for a great time. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Linda M. Jul 2020
The property was beautiful and very comfortable. The only downside was the road going in was very narrow. The property has a circular drive, but it was still tight trying to maneuver a truck and boat trailer. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Kelly C. Jul 2020
This is our second 4th of July to stay at Red Bird House. It is such a great spot, inside and out! Kitchen has all you need. We rented a Pontoon boat for 24hrs. It didn’t fit in the slip, but was fine tied off where the paddle boat sits. We will be back!!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Cindy V. Jun 2020
We really enjoyed the Birdsong Cottage! It was perfect for our 4 adults and 2 kids. Swing and climbing rope for kids, hammock for all, great patio and back yard with shade, awesome boathouse patio. We enjoyed swimming in the canal and the the paddle boat too. The house had everything we needed for cooking, games for us to play (Bird Bingo!) and was adorably decorated with the birds and lake theme. Would love to visit again!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Wendy C. Jun 2020
The house and yard are both beautiful and a wonderful place to relax with your family. We rented this specific property based on it being on the water with a boat lift so we could take our boat. The water appeared shallow so before our stay I emailed the property manager and asked questions about bringing a v drive boat and notified her of our concerns about the water not being deep enough. The property manager emailed back and stated that it was deep enough and that people bring all types of boats. She reminded us of using the map so we would stay away from the granite outcroppings. Before putting our boat in the water we found a nice neighbor who told us not to use the boat ramp in the neighborhood due to the water being too shallow. We witnessed others using the boat ramp and it`s not deep enough for a large boat. Jet skis put in without a problem. We used the Lions Community park boat dock. We were able to navigate through the granite outcroppings without difficulty with the use of the map. We did not put our boat on the lift due to continued concerns about the water depth so we kept our boat just behind the boat lift. Unfortunately the bottom of our boat and our prop hit something where we had the boat docked. The prop was bent so badly it had to be replaced. This rock or granite outcropping is not on the provided map. Maybe the water used to be deeper in this area and it used to be okay for v drive boats but it is not at this time. I notified the property manager after check out of our troubles and received no response. About a week later I received an email notifying me that our damage deposit was being refunded so I responded to that email asking if she had received my email. Her response was yes. I had asked that the listing be updating so that other people do not go through this same experience. She stated the listing had been updated on the check in information. There is still nothing on the listing warning vacationers with v drive or wakeboard boats about taking their boats and the water being too shallow. The circular drive is also difficult to navigate if you have a long rig. It`s easiest to go past the first entrance and back into the second entrance towards the gate. The house is truly wonderful so if you are not taking a boat this place is great! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Melanie J. Aug 2019
Birdsong Cottage was amazing! Beautifully decorated house, tons of room, everything you could possibly need. The yard was magnificent, quiet, shady, all carpet grass, wonderful hangout spot at the boat dock, next to the water. Quiet canal, not a lot of traffic, but close to the opening of the Colorado River, for going out in the boat. Nice deck for coffee next to the house, more than enough seating for everyone. Nice appliances, lots of windows, couldn’t have asked for more. It was exactly what we wanted, relaxing good times with good friends and Bird Song was the perfect place to enjoy it. Great communication with management, easy check in and check out. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Scott H. Aug 2019
The house well stocked, much appreciated! Board gams, dvd’s, kitchen supplies, gas grill, paddle board and paddle boat This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Very easy to do. Kept informed even though I booked many months in advance. My only real complaint would be that the floors needed cleaning. If you walked barefoot, the bottom of your feet would be brown. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Soledad G. Aug 2019
We had a great time. This home is secluded away from the noise of the busy lake. We love the house and it`s decor. Picture perfect little lake house. Management was very quick to answer any questions and provided all the information we need it to enjoy our stay. Thank you so much!

Your penalty for not taking out trash. Not my job..of $ 50.00 is ridiculous. We have stayed in other states and other rentals and never been threatened with monetary penalty..nor have we had to do it.... Threats just tick people off...asking us to do it..no problem..

This is a very nice, clean, well stocked house. The back yard is beautiful and relaxing. The cove/canal is very quiet and easy access to the main water. The canal is very narrow and shallow right in front of the house so use caution and follow the suggested map on the refrigerator.

We enjoyed our girls weekend at the Birdsong Cottage! I can`t say enough nice things about the cleanliness, the comfortable beds, and the furnishing in the house. We felt welcomed immediately, and loved the small touches, like the message center where we could leave our comments, the note telling how many birds were in the house (three people had already started to try to count them all!) the map of the granite outcroppings in the cove, and the very nice note and bottle of wine on the table. It was so thoughtful of the owners to leave the bird seed on the counter so that we could enjoy seeing the birds as they came to eat. We loved it, and can`t wait to come back! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We loved Birdsong Cottage.. beautiful home, peaceful setting... we did buy some laundry detergent to wash our towels and we needed more toilet paper. Other than that it was a wonderful getaway.

This is a lovely property with all the conveniences. The sprawling master suite with 2 walls of windows are a delight to wake up in. The kitchen is fully stocked and we felt right at home. I especially like the big yard and 2 decks that allow you to soak up the late afternoon sun. Reading a book in the hammock was also a treat. There is no downside to this property!

This has been our favorite rental by far! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Edward C. Sep 2018
This house was decorated beautifully. It is so warm and inviting that it just felt like home. The kids fished right from the back yard and enjoyed catching perch and even a catfish. Thanks to the covered boat dock they didn’t even have to stop when it started raining. We brought our own boat and had a lot of fun boating on the lake. It was a great value for the money. Everything was very accommodating and comfortable. The road to the house is a little narrow and the driveway of the house was a tight fit for our boat and van but we were able to make it work just fine. This will definitely be on our list for a return visit. Thank you. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Everything about this property was wonderful. We had the best time, and the property is immaculate and so pretty and relaxing. The pictures actually don`t even capture how pretty it really is. The house is decorated beautifully, and then on top of that, the view with the water and the beautiful shade trees! We cannot wait to return, and we have already started looking at the calendar for our next trip. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Stacy B. Jul 2018
We absolutely loved our time at Birdsong Cottage. It was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and had every single thing you could need during our stay from a corkscrew to a gas grill! We loved the cottage`s bird decor (inside and out) and thoroughly enjoyed our time on beautiful Lake LBJ. The only thing I would mention is that, due to the natural granite outcrops in the canal just behind the house, getting out to the main water can be a little tricky for a deep hull boat with a motor that can`t be raised, particularly at night. While eating on the deck, we saw more than one boat without the benefit of Sally`s wonderful granite-avoidance map, hit the granite. We did find our groove for entering and leaving the canal although we had to get wet to manually move our boat around the granite. Other than that, it was perfect. Just lovely!

We enjoyed every aspect of this home during our stay. The home carried a welcoming feel throughout it`s entirety. Every single detail was precious, and in line with the theme. We enjoyed the different venues(decks and patios) to drink our coffee and wine. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the paddle boat as well. We plan to make another trip to Lake LBJ, just so that we can stay in this home again. We are very thankful that the owners allow others to enjoy their beautiful home.

This house is perfect. We had seven adults comfortably stay here while visiting friends with a home down the lake for a birthday weekend. The yard and deck area are really nice and provide shade to enjoy meals and good fellowship. The HEB in Kingsland is really convenient to grab any last minute items. Property management and the owners were easy to work with and very accommodating. The pictures don`t do the property justice. We look forward to staying here again!

Loved our stay at Bird Song. Owner needs to provide instructions on how to use TV in master bedroom for those older folks that are not tech savey! Also, ceiling fan in master only worked at one speed and in other bedroom, you could only use a lower speed as on high, it wabbled. Other than that, it was perfect. It certainly has one of if not the prettiest back yard on the slip. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The cottage is extremely well maintained and comfortable. The property was very quiet so my husband and I were able to relax and recharge during our 2 month stay. We will definitely return next year.

This lakehouse home is extremely nice as you can see from the pictures and it does not disappoint. Plenty of room for all to be quite comfortable. The backyard has plenty of trees and shade and the water access is right there for you to enjoy. Would love to stay here again on a visit back to LBJ. Owners are very nice and accommodating for whatever you may need. If have teenagers do warn them that the internet service is scarce from the house. Didn`t bother the adults though and they totally survived..:) This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We are remodeling our lake house. We needed a place to stay while I played the part of general contractor. We found the house to be exactly we expected a lake house to be. The house is called `bird house` well we bought 20 pounds of Cardinal food and fed them for 3 months and enjoyed watching them play. The managers were wonderful and easy to contact. The house is beautiful, very roomy and very clean. My compliments to the owners for such a wonderful place to share with others. We saw 2 white tip foxes, and lots of birds.
