Beautiful ranch home with private pool & lake views

This expansive seven-bedroom home has a secluded view with a detached guest suite and private pool and tennis court. When Lake Travis is full you can see the beautiful water from the backyard! The character throughout the home is rich, just like the Texas culture. Antique doors leading to the courtyard are reported to be from Alamo Village where John Wayne directed and starred in the movie “The Alamo” during the ’60s. The neighbors say that John Wayne stayed at the house and played tennis here!

The family room boasts a fireplace, TV, a six-seat table for casual dining or games, and a sofa bed. The adjacent Great Room features an impressive stone fireplace, two sofas, a collection of armchairs, and a 70” TV - perfect for large groups to watch movies or sporting events. A large, gourmet kitchen and table for coffee are situated in front of an old stone fireplace. The dining room, with its own fireplace, provides seating for ten.

The main bedroom and a second bedroom are upstairs and overlook the Great room. The main suite has a fireplace, balcony, and a huge walk-in closet with a second laundry room. Its en suite bath boasts two vanities, a soaking tub, and walk-in shower. A twin rollaway bed is also available.One of the guest bedrooms has access to the front porch.

Across the courtyard, the separate guest quarters includes an upstairs main apartment and a studio apartment. The upstairs suite has a full kitchen, private balcony, and living area with a sleeping area, 55” TV, Xbox, and fireplace, as well as a large bedroom with an en suite bathroom. The downstairs suite has a twin daybed with twin trundle that includes linens to combine into a king bed as well as an en suite bath with a walk-in shower.


This home truly is a find. You are in the heart of the Hill Country and although you will love the solitude, tennis, and swimming, there are great finds in the area. There are 18 Hill Country wineries, five microbreweries, and more than eight public golf courses within an hour drive. Check out Spicewood Winery and Stone House Vineyard six miles away. Bring home a bottle to enjoy on the back deck with stunning views from the unheated pool.

For horseback riding, enjoy a guided trail ride from Silver's Trails in Spicewood.

Antique/collectible hunters will love Fredericksburg, located an hour to the southwest. The house is 15 minutes from outlet shopping in Bee Cave, 10 minutes from Muleshoe Recreation area, and 40 minutes from the airport and downtown Austin.

Was an amazing place to stay. Thank you

This is the second time we have stayed at this home for an extended multi-family get together.

The kitchen is well designed and equipped for a large group, and we love the fact that the dining table can seat all of us!

Will definitely use it again in the future.

Lovely property with a ton of space.

I really loved the house and how it was all laid out. Super nice mansion near the lake. I wish I had been able to contact the owner for a couple of small questions and been able to use the indoor speakers but I wouldn’t take a star away for that. Thank you so much for having us!

This house and property was perfect for our large family gathering with lots of cooking and pool time! It had everything we could have needed! there are so many cool things in every nook and cranny. Will definitely be booking again fo similar future gatherings.

Home fit a large group VERY comfortably. Great for kids and large families. Well stocked kitchen with lots of appliances. Wonderful pool. TONS of seating options inside and outside by pool.

Loved, loved, loved this home. Such a fully appointed kitchen with multiple countertops and a bar. Great entertaining home. Game table area, super large living area and dining table. We really enjoyed being outside poolside in the mornings before it got too hot. So many bedrooms. If you can get an actual floor plan it would be so helpful for trying to place all your family in the right shared bathrooms. The virtual tour is helpful, but can be difficult to visualize. Two queen beds share a jack and jill bath. One twin room upstairs next to King room does NOt have a toilet so those people have to go downstairs off the kitchen. There is a single daybed bedroom next to garage doors which has its own bathroom +++! The apartment above the garage is a home in itself; however, the bathroom is inside the queen bedroom making the queen bed guest in the main area and the sofa bed guest have to go through the bedroom to use the toilet at night. The only reasons I did not give five stars:

1. 10 am checkout is not the norm and if you are granted later, they will charge you extra.
2. The outdoor kitchen in the photos (super large grill etc. is not there - there is instead a stand alone gas grill next to the bar. We spent a lot of time outside and cooked for a lot of people outside.
3. Lack of complete understanding of bathroom situations.

I would stay again and would definitely recommend this huge, John Wayne inspired home to everyone! The pool and outdoor areas are a huge plus!

Spent a weekend here with my family for a wedding, it was absolutely beautiful and the pictures online does not do it justice! We were there for 3 days and we still didn't see everything it had to offer. Lots of space for everyone, love the antiques and decor. Will definitely be coming back.

The family enjoyed what little time we had at the home, but regretted the cold weather and inability to take advantage of all the amenities. It was a very remote location with 20 minute drives to dining, but I guess that's Texas.
