The house is beautiful. Big, spacious. I like the way the rooms are set up. No bunk beds yay! So many homes in this area have bunk beds & we were a group of adults. No one wants to sleep in a bunk bed. The beds are comfortable. There’s a balcony off the living room that is not in the pictures. It’s very nice & it has L shaped sofa plus rocking chairs. Then there’s 2 sitting areas by the dock/ water. Plenty of dishes, pans & other amenities. Refrigerator kept turning off and then we couldn’t switch buttons from ice to water. We had to play with the buttons to figure it out. It was very clean. Lake area was quiet which made it easier to paddle board. There’s 2 paddle boards and 2 kayaks provided. No floats. Propane was provided for bbq pit. Wood is not provided for fire pit so bring some. There’s a small front yard w/ a fence for the dogs to go potty. That is great if you have dogs. The parking is odd. There is a small driveway & you can fit 4 cars. The house is on a narrow dirt road with trees & rocks so there isn’t anywhere else to park. The walkway from the dock to the house is very steep and then leads to stairs to the balcony. It is a workout. Even the dog was pooped going up the hill & stairs. I was fine with it because I need the exercise, but beware if traveling with small kids or elderly. It may be too much for them. I travel and stay in Vrbo/ Airbnb often. This is one the best houses. I do recommend staying here. The check out at 10am is early. It would be better if it was 11am.
As for Vacasa property management, they did respond to me quickly. But none of them are local. They are in another state so if you need something you might not get it. When I arrived on Fri at 4pm, both outside trash bins were full from previous guest. No one put the trash out for pick up. I called Vacasa and they said the next morning a maintenance person would pick it up. They never did. The whole weekend till Mon-no one came to get the trash. We had our own trash so we had no space for ours.

Spacious, well maintained, clean, beautiful with serene views. Excellent property. Would love to visit again.
Marcy M.Dec 2021
This house was perfect for a multi family get away! We had two families stay there and had plenty of space to spread out. The outdoor seating in the back was relaxing and comfortable. We’d definitely go back!
Diana M.Oct 2021
The house was perfect for our needs. The space was exactly as described - 4 bedrooms/4 baths, game room, well stocked kitchen, and a great room area. The dock was large and we especially enjoyed sitting on the top deck enjoying the sunshine and sunsets. Star gazing was spectacular. We could see the Milky Way, Venus, shooting starts and more!
Tessa J.Aug 2021
The photos don't do this house justice! The house was much bigger/open than we thought it would be. Would definitely rent this house again!
Kelly W.Jul 2021
Location on lake was great and home is beautiful. Exactly like pics. Boat ramp is within short walking distance from house and boat dock at home was very nice. However didn’t like having to pay $40 to launch and pull boat from river. Was told by Heart of Texas it’s because they don’t pay HOA dues or it would be free. For the nightly rate this should be included.
Had plenty of space for our group and beds were comfy. Suggest bringing a few extra towels unless you don’t mind doing laundry on vacation
Nice that They supplied plenty of trash bags, tp, paper towels, laundry soap and dish soap. Even a new bottle of propane for grill if needed.
Tons of games and books and movies to choose from and back porch was the favorite spot.
Would not recommend for families with toddlers or elderly because the hill from boat ramp to house is steep and there’s no gate on the stairs going down to back yard. Luckily we didn’t have that issue.
We had a great time and it met our needs and expectations.
Cheryl M.Jun 2021
Loved, loved the house. It was absolutely perfect for my family. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is that the yard is very steep.
Kelly B.May 2021
Beautiful views, spacious house - we enjoyed our stay so much!
sara w.May 2021
The location, the house were all as advertised. House was great for those who want a big house with plenty of bathrooms. The house had everything we needed. Kitchen had everything , bathrooms had everything, nice towels . Everything worked well, no troubles at all. Easy checkin, and out. Very nice.
Sara O.May 2021
This is a beautiful home that has lots of room to spread out. The two bedrooms on the lower level were great for the grandparents, and there are 3 bedrooms upstairs for the younger families. We spent most of our time in the lake and on the patios. Loved having a full laundry room since we were outside all day. All dishes, pots/pans, and gas grill were available for meals. After a year without family visits, this was a well deserved vacation. Thank you for hosting!
Charles D.May 2021
Family had plenty of space. It rained the whole weekend but there were plenty of games to play and places to sit and talk. Enjoyed fishing from the dock as well as the kayaks and paddleboards. The facility was very clean and welcoming.
Kristin S.Mar 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Elk Lodge. It was very clean and exactly as described. The area was very quiet and perfect for relaxing. We would definitely stay here again.
Darren H.Nov 2020
Property and owners were both phenomenal. The stay was everything and more the pictures depict. We will definitely be back in the summer.
Shae W.Oct 2020
This is the second time I have rented this home. The layout works so well for friends/families as there is room for everyone to spread out. Viewing the lake from the giant balcony is the best part of the home. It is always clean and the team that cares for the home never disappoints.
Karen P.Sep 2020
Beautiful house, thoughtfully decorated for comfort, and beautiful lakefront setting.
Whitney F.Sep 2020
Everything was great the location and home are very unique.
Kevin G.Aug 2020
Wonderful well appointed house on great part of Lake.
Kerrie C.Aug 2020
Back porch and dock are fabulous.
Very comfortable for group. Kitchen is well stocked for 14. Paddle boards and kayaks were a hit. Only 1 shared bathroom upstairs for 2 of the rooms (7 guests) was a bit tight. Parking is not feasible for boat trailer AND guests - had to leave our truck and trailer offsite which was not ideal. Overall, we enjoyed the house.
Greg O.Jul 2020
Everything about this place was really great and easy.
Kari B.Jul 2020
Great location on the water. It comes with lake toys including kayaks, paddle boards $ water mat. Easily sleeps 12. Fun spot!
Eric K.Jul 2020
Beautiful house on a fairly quiet part of the lake. House was super-clean, very spacious, and had pretty much everything we needed. The only slight knock was the lack of personal flotation devices (life jackets) for use with the kayaks and stand-up paddleboards. We mistakenly assumed that since the kayaks and boards were part of the rental, flotation devices would also be provided.
Shae W.Jun 2020
Everything about this home is amazing. The best part is sitting on the balcony. It is huge and shaded and you feel like you are in a gorgeous treehouse.
Judy K.Jun 2020
Great location, fantastic facilities, wonderful place to hang out with family and friends. Extra “toys” like paddle boards and Kayaks we’re great fun!
John Robert H.Mar 2020
This place has it all! Even better than the pics! Very clean and has all amenities you need! Will be booking again soon!
Emily M.Mar 2020
We loved this house for our quick long-weekend getaway. The house is amazing with comfy beds, linens, a well-stocked kitchen and outstanding outdoor amenities like paddle boards, kayaks and sitting areas.
We rented a boat that was delivered to the house and we all had the best time! Will def rent again

We celebrated my husbands birthday with a weekend with friends at Elk Lodge. The layout was perfect for us. There were 4 couples so each couple had their own room and bathroom. We were so comfortable and are making plans to come back in 2020 for a week instead of just a weekend. The kayaks and the Lilly Pad were a plus!!
Kaylie H.Sep 2019
It was more than I expected for starters the most comfortable beds ever I rented the home bc it was located on the water I wanted to take my aunt who was visiting from Ohio n show her Texas n she loves fishing she had the best time we all did plenty of rooms a open kitchen the biggest beautiful wood table big enough for all of us my mom came down as well and cooked breakfast every morning she loved the kitchen and it was the hottest day and the house was so nice and cool the entry was easy and this house is a dream I would defenetly rent this house again and tell my friends about it it was very clean I have a 4 month old. House was maintained and comfy the kids loved the rooms and multiple bathrooms really was a treat with children. the 2 decks were awesome And fun and the boat dock was awesome we brought our boat n went fishing n it was Convenient to have the the boat right out the back Door
Michelle P.Sep 2019
We couldn't have been happier that we picked this house to stay in. It is beautiful, well kept and had all the comforts of home. The boat dock was a fun place to hang out and we had a wonderful time. We made a lot of nice memories and we can't wait to come back next year !!
Kathleen M.Aug 2019
We rented Elk Lodge for an “end-of-summer” long weekend. It was perfect! There was enough room for our large, extended family to spread out and the kayaks, paddle boards, and lily pad kept the kids (ranging from 8-21) busy. The patio above the boat slip was a real plus for s’mores and star gazing. We will definitely rent Elk Lodge again.
Misty S.Jul 2019
The home was very clean, accommodating, and comfortable. The owner was accurate in their description and we had a wonderful time. Easy water access and very well kept grounds and boat house. All the comforts you would expect from a vacation home and more. We will definitely stay here again!
James G.Feb 2019
This home is very large and very comfortable very well-equipped A high-quality rental in every way
Erna H.Nov 2018
Excellent location and stunning big house, would love to return - great memories made!
Allen P.Oct 2018
House was very nice, great lake view. Perfect long weekend.
Jay O.May 2017
We have a few families that do an annual trip to Lake LBJ to celebrate the Memorial Day Weekend. This year we stayed at the Elk Lodge and it was fantastic. The house is new, nice, and clean. It was perfect for multiple families as there are four bedrooms that are comfortable for adults and a bunk room for the kids with four big twin size beds. The dock area was great for relaxing, making s’mores, and swimming. Added bonus … we could park two boats at the dock. Thanks for a great weekend!!
Anthony C.Mar 2017
Elk Lodge is an amazing lakefront property! We have rented many houses on Lake LBJ and this one did not disappoint. The house is appointed with everything one could need and the kitchen has plenty of dishes, cookware and even an ice cream maker. The master bedroom has a fabulous soak-in copper tub and the bed is on e that Goldilocks would love. The decor is rustic with a ranch type feel with leather couches and wood furniture. There is even an enclosed gated area with a doggy door if you wish to bring Fido. The 2 story dock is perfect for sunsets, fishing and catching rays when not boating. Don’t forget to bring the marshmallows for the s’mores you can make sitting around the fire pit by the lake with your family. This house is also great for grandparents since the driveway is flat and leads straight to the first floor/bedrooms and deck overlooking the lake. We also love the location on the lake and you are within 10 minutes to grocery store. I can’t say enough about this hidden gem and will definitely be back!!!
