Guests will want to stay all day on the boat dock at Summer House in the Highland Lakes of Burnet County. The dock is equipped with two boat slips with lifts, a ramp for two personal watercraft, a ladder for easy water access, and ample dining and lounging areas.

Summer House is a year-round escape

After a few days at Summer House, the first question you’ll ask is: “Is it available all week?” This sprawling, lakefront, ranch-style home is located on the Colorado Arm of near constant-level Lake LBJ. The Colorado River is the essence of the Highland Lakes. It hugs the western border of Burnet County, making it a choice destination for water sports enthusiasts and those who enjoy the slower pace of lake life.

The genteel appearance of Summer House does not end when you step through the front door. A spectacular wall of windows with grand views of the lake greets guests upon entry. The 2,150-square-foot home has three bedrooms and sleeps eight very comfortably with a king, a queen, twins, and bunk beds. The heart of the home is a large space with a well-appointed kitchen, vaulted ceilings, and plenty of room to gather. Three dining areas make mealtime — and game time — a treat with indoor and outdoor options. 

Out back, guests will appreciate the large lawn with prominent shade trees. The gently sloping green space leads to a spacious dock that lends itself to lakefront living. Guests bringing their own boats have access to two boat slips with lifts and a ramp with space for two personal watercraft. 

No boat, no problem. Summer House has two kayaks for guests who are ready for adventure. Anglers will want to pack a pole: The Highland Lakes have excellent fishing year-round. If golf is your habit, take your pick from a variety of golf courses within an easy 30-minute drive from the home.

Summer House is centrally located to Burnet, Marble Falls, and Kingsland. Visitors will find wineries, breweries, waterfront eateries, and shopping nearby along with a wide variety of recreation and nature at Inks Lake State Park and Longhorn Cavern State Park.
