The house and property was beautiful with fenced in yard and patio access to water. Fishing and swimming was good too. The river was so calm and peaceful.

We had our all 4 boys and 2 dogs up on the river over the Father day weekend. The river is clam from about 4pm - 7am (the dam is closed over night) otherwise it is running about 4 mph. you can not swim in it at that speed. Great other wise. The home is small and has "funny" tasting water. Bring your own water. The beds are comfy. The washer is a front load and is smelly. great location, great river, bring your own water.

The lake view is amazing!!! We had a blast on the Kayaks and my big fur baby felt right at home and we didn’t have to worry about him getting loose in the amazing fenced in yard. We will definitely be back!

Everything we needed was at the river house. We appreciate how clean it was and felt great putting two babies on the floor immediately. The waterfront decks are wonderful. Great relaxing family vacay. Only downside, we had to pack up and come home.

The setting was perfect. We had 4 grandsons (11 to 3) and their parents that really enjoyed the kayaking and fishing. A half day at Inks Lake State Park was easy to get to and was great fun. The lower level deck near the lake was awesome for adults after kids were in bed.
The house needed more glasses, cups and plates to accommodate 7 people.
Outside lighting on walkways and stairs didn’t function. That is a safety issue.
Otherwise the house was really good for our extended family and we would come again.

We loved our time here! Very clean. Fenced yard was great for our dogs and house is well equipped for all your needs. Kitchen well stocked and bath accessories including towels and beach towels. Gas grill nice and the decks leading to the water are so great. The rocks in the river keep the fast watercraft from racing through there which makes using the provided kayaks great and swimming safe. Overall a great place and will stay again. NOTE: we have ATT and had service the whole time and WIFI if needed with our hotspots. Should also be noted that entry to house requires two flights of steps so not for anyone with physical frailties.

Manager response:
Thank you for choosing our home, Rebecca. We appreciate your feedback and confirm more blankets will be added to the home. We have added and updated kitchen dishes and utensils and all lights are working. The fridge, as well as the locks, are in working order. Regrettably, this home does not offer WiFi as an amenity and we apologize for the disappointment this may have caused. We hope to host you again, in the future, for a much more enjoyable stay.

We came for a lake trip and brought our two big dogs with us. This is a perfect house for dogs. You have neighbors but even area with lake access has fence. House had mostly everything we needed with some nice amenities (games, x box, outside fridge). The view on dock was incredible. The house was good, but could’ve been great with a few updates. As prior reviews have stated, there was a few things that were broken. The master bathroom toilet holder was broken, the dining room table on the dock was broken, etc. While we were there there was a septic issue that wasn’t taken care of as quickly as we were told. However, we were refunded a night which we thought was more than fair. The water was very hard and everything seemed to have film including clean dishes. Fair warning to those with a boat… there are tons of rocks by this property which made navigating a boat to and from very stressful. We saw people hit rocks ( including us) and others get stuck. All in all we had a fantastic trip to lake LBJ!

Our family loved everything about this rental. The house had everything you needed for cooking and sleeping. House was very clean. The outside was beautiful which had numerous relaxing spots. We enjoyed watching the river rise when the gates were open, the turtles lined up all in a row on the rocks, the ducks swimming and the geese flying. The property had a large fence yard and also a fenced area right by the water for your fur babies. I highly recommend this rental. We will definitely go back.

This property was great. The water was perfect for kayaks, paddle boarding and fishing. The fences were arranged so that the dogs could play in the yard, enjoy the patio or play in the water. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Will definitely be going back.

River access and the view of the river was breathtaking! Cleanliness of the home and especially the dishes wasn’t awesome but we would for sure come here again!! It was really a great place!

We love the large fenced in yard for our dogs. It was too cold too cold to swim but we enjoyed the view of the river. It was very relaxing.
Jennie R. Sep 2019
The fencing allowed us to block off the water to keep our dog from swimming without us! The house was as advertised and has what you need for a great stay. Bring your own beach towels! Only downside is the ladder pictured at the retaining wall is no longer there so getting into the water to wade can be a challenge.
Manager response:
We apologize the ladder went missing during the flood waters. We will get the picture removed from the listing as soon as possible. Thank you!

The yard is in great condition and my dogs loved it. Property is large and has room for many great activities. Patio areas by water are large and that is where I spent most of my time.

Great place!! House is great and fishing off the boat dock in the backyard was great! Caught a lot of fish! Enclosed fence for a dog.
Laura H. Sep 2018
Area was very nice. Huge rocks let us kayak or swim/walk between rocks. We had a blast as did our dogs.
