The Point Vacation Lake House

"Waterfront Vacationing at Its Best"

For unsurpassed, spectacular open-water views, you can't beat The Point vacation lake house on beautiful Lake LBJ.  Miles and miles of open water create a feeling of expansiveness and unrivaled beauty on the lake.  

The Point vacation lake house has it all: 300 feet of waterfront on Lake LBJ, covered boat dock with electric lift for your boat, fishing pier, outdoor fire pit, covered porch and decks with unbelievable views of the activity on the lake, and a nice, clean, shallow swimming area. 

The vacation lake house was named "The Point" because of its location at the fartherest point out on a peninsula on Lake LBJ, where it has the most beautiful lake views of any home in the area.  If you are looking for the perfect vacation lake house, you have just found it.

The Fishing Pier

The fishing pier at The Point is the perfect place to catch the big one.  It is also a good place to sit and enjoy the view of Lake LBJ.  You can see for miles, all the way to Wirtz Dam.

Guest Comments:

"Great place for family vacation! Location provided an awesome view. Beautiful property with updated decor. Kitchen was very spacious, well stocked with dishes and cookware, and the bar and dining table provided ample seating. In addition, the seating on the deck was great for dining or relaxing....always a nice breeze! We especially enjoyed the large yard for playing outdoor games. Chaise lounges were nice for enjoying the sun on the dock, yet trees provided shade for those who preferred that. Great to have a lift available for our boat. Owner was very nice to work with and quick to provide answers to questions. Definitely top of our list for next vacation on the lake." E. S.

"Our family would like to thank the Gaston family for allowing us to vacation in their home! The home was beautiful, roomy, comfortable and extremely relaxing! Everything you needed was at our fingertips! If you forgot something, no worries, HEB and Restaurants are right down the street. The scenery was gorgeous and we had some feathered friends to stop by and join in! We will definitely be returning if the home is kept available! God bless!" H. T.

"Great vacation again this year with the family at The Point. Beautiful home, well maintained and perfect for big families. Kids love having their own separate space downstairs. Whether you just swim, boat all day, or just swing in a hammock, this is the place to be. We definitely plan to come back again next summer." S. T.-Ft. Worth

"My friends and I (12 total) make yearly trips for a girls' weekend. This was our second visit to The Point and the first time we've ever returned to a house. The Point is setup perfectly; plenty of room for everyone to enjoy themselves with just the right amenities for comfort. The house is beautifully laid out and the large windows offer some of the best views of the lake we've ever seen. We made a unanimous decision to make The Point our official weekend retreat every year and we're already counting down the days until 2016. HUGE thanks to Brian for opening his lovely home and making the entire reservation process so easy!" A. B.

"AWESOME TIME!  My family and friends had a wonderful experience this past weekend.  You have a fantastic home with the accommodations I expect and want when out of town.  Weather was great, fishing was good but most of all we just enjoyed each others company." H.C. - Ft. Worth

"We really enjoyed the house and hope to come back sometime in the future.  The kids had a great time playing in the nice big yard and fishing – they caught 4 different kinds of fish from the piers!  The bunk room was also very nice for them.  We really liked the common areas in the house.  The openness of the kitchen/dining/den leaves lots of room for everyone to visit without being crowded.  And the kitchen was top-notch!  The beds were comfy – everything was perfect!"    S. P. – Houston

"We really had a great time at the lake house. The house was great and the view exceeded our expectations. Our kids had a great time fishing and hanging out on the hammock. Our entire group was impressed with the home and it made the experience one to remember. We plan on coming back. You all have done a really nice job decorating and including all the comforts of home."  J. B. – Flower Mound

"We just wanted to write to tell you what a wonderful weekend we had at your lake house.  Your house is absolutely gorgeous and is so well-appointed, we enjoyed ourselves fully!   What a beautiful piece of property that is, and the house takes full advantage of the magnificent view.  We are thrilled to have found "The Point," and since we now love the house so much, we hope that all other renters will take excellent care of the house so that it will remain in its pristine condition for as long as possible." J. H., San Antonio
