House was very comfortable, clean and welcoming.
Jeremy G. Oct 2022
Our family loved the house! The views are incredible, and the fire pit offered nightly entertainment. There were also plenty of water toys to entertain the kids. Overall, highly recommend this house!
Yessenia S. Sep 2022
Just what the family needed. We loved everything about this place. We expected it to be small since it was only a two bedroom, but we were wrong. Very spacious for its size. Tons of stuff to do in the surrounding area or just stay and enjoy your own private water access. Where could you go wrong. We had some minor housekeeping issues but not enough to knock off a star. Definitely going again next year.
Joy L. Jul 2022
We stayed at Arva’s Retreat while attending a family reunion. Waking up every morning and having coffee by the lake was heavenly. The house was clean with a well stocked kitchen and perfectly located for water sports and swimming. I look forward to staying there again next year!
Erin V. Jul 2022
This was a very cozy and private little retreat. The home was very clean.
Johnny T. Jul 2022
We could sit on the back porch and watch our dogs run to the river. It was quiet and relaxing. We also enjoyed watching the boats coming by.
Christy P. May 2022
Great weekend with 2 of my best friends from high
school.The house had everything we needed for a beautiful stay.. Nice view for morning coffee. I enjoyed using the kayak. Sunset and night sky was also really good!

Had a great time will return later this year!
Matt A. Jan 2022
We had a great time at staying at Arva’s Retreat. The weather did not cooperate as it was very cold although the games, internet and TV were great ways to keep the kids busy while the weather passed. The last day was beautiful and we were able to spend time down by the lake and relax. The yard has some thorns so make sure to wear shoes and watch where the dog goes although the extra items to play in the yard and float on the lake in the little shed is a plus to staying active.
Kerri M. Dec 2021
This house was perfect for our group! It had everything we needed and provided us with a very relaxing weekend getaway.
Anthony W. Sep 2021
Loved having the kayaks and firepit to use!
Very clean and organized!
Kenneth S. Aug 2021
Beautiful home, great location and amenities. I would stay again!!!
GARY G. Jul 2021
Loved the view and tranquility and loved that Arvas supplies all of your needs (pots, pans, knives, utensils, etc.) for a very comfortable stay.
Aubree R. Jul 2021
The location on the lake was PERFECT! The backyard was magnificent, the entire yard is fenced with small dogs in mind so it was wonderful for our pups! There's a rock maybe 20 feet from the shore in the water my kids had fun standing on and playing king of the rock. The house was small but we weren't there to spend time indoors. It was a super cute house with everything we needed. I highly recommend this place and will definitely stay at it again.

Let me begin by saying wowwy. What an awesome time my wife and I had during our stay. The entire property was amazing. The fenced in yard for our dogs were amazing. Our fishing experience was amazing. The inside of the residence met all of our needs. We will be coming back here year after year after year. We've told other family members about our stay, now they want to make reservations.

I would give it a 6 star rating if I could. The only thing I can say that wasn't a 6 star was the Master bedroom bed. The mattress was very uncomfortable. Other than that, A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
MELINDA H. Apr 2021
The view is great! Nice house with a fully equipped kitchen and nice appliances. Really appreciated the fenced yard for our dogs as well. Do not use the red kayak. It has a big hole and fills with water quickly. Check the grill before you use it, though my husband cleaned about two pounds of soot off of it so should be good now. I was disappointed that we did not pay attention the first night and it ruined our Salmon. The fire pit is really nice. Just a really good spot overall.
KRISTA T. Apr 2021
The house and yard on the river were lovely! Kitchen and house very well equipped. Great location and easy access to Inks Lake and Longhorn Caverns state parks and plenty of other attractions just minutes away. Beautiful sunsets a bonus.
Richard H. Oct 2020
This house was really nice, and the gas station / restaurant down the road had great food! The only reason I didn't give the house a five was because of all the trips and falls around the property. Not very friendly for small kids. Kingsland is not far at all and the river was awesome!
Richard L. Aug 2020
Loved the location. Just far enough for privacy. Did most of our shopping in Marblefalls. View was spectacular. Clean home with everything we needed. Will definitely consider this place again.
Monika P. Aug 2020
We went with our three teenage boys, the space was perfect for us, the bunk beds are full size, so they had plenty of room. The whole house was very comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipped. The lake was busy—lots of jet skis, but we still were able to swim and kayak. We watched a gorgeous sunset. My only complaint is that the dishwasher was broken and full of dirty dishes, so I’m glad I had the foresight to pack paper plates, which helped a bit with not having too much to clean. The dishwasher situation is the only reason I am not giving the house five stars. We definitely plan to return.
Manager response:
Hi, Monika! We are so glad this home worked well for your group and do apologize we missed the broken dishwasher. We are getting this taken care of. Thank you!
Dixie G. Jul 2020
Arva's Retreat was a perfect get away spot for the family. House was perfect, great dock for fishing and everyone enjoyed the kayak and lily pad. Dogs got to run around free thanks to fences on both sides of the yard. Not much shade in the afternoon, but spent a lot of time in the water.
Veronica V. Jun 2020
We had our family vacation here and it was perfect! The home is cute and up to date and the view is amazing! We didn’t have any issues staying here and all questions we had were answered quickly by management. The only thing I would suggest is to bring spices to cook with, I didn’t pack any lol but a Walmart is a quick 15 minute drive so no big deal! There is also a corner store 5 minutes up the road.
Catherine T. Jun 2020
Great location and relaxing porch. Place was perfect spot for our family of 5 and loved the gated backyard for our dog. Boating and fishing right off the dock worked great.
Matthew K. May 2020
The whole family including the dog had blast!
Dori W. May 2020
Beautiful kid friendly home, very relaxing and in a perfect location.
Travis M. Mar 2020
Nice house and view was awesome
Jennifer C. Mar 2020
We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for having us. It was wonderful, especially now, to unplug and be with family. The house is lovely and had everything we needed.
Johnathan S. Feb 2020
The home was well kept with lots if charm. Great view of the lake. We had a really nice time and the pups loved it too!! Thank you for sharing such a nice home. Would certainly recommend to my friends and family.
Kyle B. Jan 2020
2 day stay, very nice. Will stay here again.
Suzie H. Oct 2019
This house was great for a mini family reunion. The amenities were more than I hoped for. Everything we needed was there! The one downside was that there was a burn ban and we couldn't take advantage of the firepit. Otherwise it was wonderful.
Kristen R. Oct 2019
I love this part of the lake. House is perfect size for for a small group. Dog and I loved the easy access into the water. Kitchen has everything you need and updated appliances.
Mary S. Sep 2019
I spent hours searching for the perfect place for 4 men going on a fishing adventure. All four needed their own bed and a space to gather. This home was absolutely perfect! The first reaction was WOW! All the amenities were exactly what they needed, used and enjoyed. The grill, outdoor comforts, kitchen, tv area, etc. They suffered for nothing! The location with a dock and all was excellent. Very comfortable for the week spent relaxing, fishing and telling lots of stories! They will remember this for many, many years to come! Take a look at the pictures in their folio you won't be disappoint with this wonderful home!
Charlotte S. Sep 2019

Jay P. Aug 2019
Beautiful property that is priced right!
Stacy P. Aug 2019
The house is in a good location on Lake LBJ and we had everything we needed for a family getaway. The boat dock, lift and private neighborhood boat ramp were all great.
David G. Jul 2019
The home was perfect and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more!!
LeAnne S. Jul 2019
The home was very cozy and the dock and all the amenities made the weekend very enjoyable. Beautiful views and great location as well.
NICKI W. Jun 2019
We booked this house for a quick weekend trip to see our son who was stationed at Ft. Hood. We wanted a place we could enjoy spending time with our family. Arva's retreat was exactly what we were looking for! The pictures are very accurate of the house, yard and lake! One thing that the web page does not mention is that there is a completely full kitchen. I brought utensils from home not knowing what was there. No need, it is fully stocked. We loved the coziness, loved the fire pit and absolutely adored the views and lake! We will be coming back!
Jennifer E. Jun 2019
We reserved this house for a family vacation with our grown children and our 16 year old. We had not been together for a family vacation in 10 years. I could not have chosen a more perfect setting. The house is very comfortable and homey. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. We brought our jet ski with us and docked it at the house. Our kids had a ball being towed behind the jet ski. The house has plenty of towels, washcloths, etc., which is sometimes hard to find in a vacation rental. The house is not far at all from several towns. Was definitely a blast for us all and we hope to return someday. Thank you for your hospitality!
Mark W. May 2019
Cabin is clean and well appointed. Nice kitchen. Media in all rooms, flat screen with Dish Network and WiFi. River view with sunset was outstanding. Close to Fredericksburg and Marble Falls.
Donna H. Apr 2019
Very comfortable, well equipped house. Close to two very good wineries. Short drive to Marble Falls. Our favorite part of our day was spent around the fire pit as the sun set over the river.
A Allison S. Mar 2019
The retreat was the perfect size in a great location with an even better view! The kayaks were great, as was the fire pit. We would definitely recommend.

whether it be wine tasting, golf, or jet skiing on the river.
Luann S. Nov 2018
House is very nice. Well equipped! Quiet part of the river. Our family really enjoyed our stay.
Kara L L. Oct 2018
The views are unbeatable and the house was very clean (minus a stray few long hairs in the bed, but it happens). The kitchen was well-stocked, which was greatly appreciated. The bathrooms were very nice and clean. Loved the easy access to the water and the comfy reclining couches. There were a few hiccups (the satellite TV did not work and there were no instructions, the sprinklers were on for an extremely extended period of time soaking the firewood that we had intended to use for the fire pit in the process and interfering with our ability to be in the yard, etc.) BUT Vacasa was very responsive to my concerns. Would definitely recommend and visit again in the future.

This is a nice house.
