If you've read my blog for a while, you'd know that my parents own a gorgeous house on Lake LBJ, about an hour from Austin in the Texas Hill Country. Both my mom and dad grew up going to their family lakehouses and knew they wanted the same for their family. They bought it about 10 years ago and it has been so much fun to grow up at the lake. Now that I am an adult, I really appreciate the time away from the city, technology, and the stresses of life. Yes there is a TV at the lake and yes I can get on my phone but I find that I am able to shut out the real world when I am there. Unplugging from technology at your own home is hard but when you are taking this view in, it's easy.
An older woman owns thousands of acres across the lake from their house and refuses to sell or build so it just adds to the serene beauty. That ant bite of a bump on the horizon is Pack Saddle Mountain and I have seen some of the most beautiful sunsets in my whole life over that mountain.
What is unique about their house is the fact that they have over 100 feet of zero dept sand making it feel like you're on vacation at the beach. At other houses on the lake, you're either sitting on the grass/dock or in the water...this house has the best of both worlds!
Before we got pregnant I had visions of future babies and cousins digging in the sand, jumping off the dock, and floating on life jackets during a hot summer day. Yep I think about that kind of stuff! I can't wait for our little man to grow up going to the lake.
Unfortuantely this summer has already become so busy for our family with babies, trips, and my brothers traveling basketball team. My parents were left with minimal lakehouse weekends and decided to start renting it out for other families to enjoy! They are using a local company, Your Front Desk, to manage the property and you can check out the listing here. If you and your family are looking for a summer getaway close to home, this could be your place.
We call it the butterfly house because of the ceiling architecture, check out the pics on the posting!
