Turtle Rock, a lakeside cottage on a cove

Turtle Rock Lake House in Kingsland, Texas
Take a break from the lake around the large farmhouse table at Turtle Rock Lake House. It is perfect for family meals and has ample room for a lively round of board games, dominos, or cards.

One weekend is not enough at Turtle Rock. This cottage is nestled on a quiet cove off of Lake LBJ in Kingsland, a community that thrives on waterfront living. The completely renovated 1950s home is decorated with treasures from tropical travels. The front lawn is well kept and welcoming. Mature trees provide ample shade.

Turtle Rock’s interior has a designer’s touch with an overall theme of relaxation. The three bedrooms provide sleeping for eight, and a pull-out sleeper in the living room has space for two more. Flat-screen TVs are located in the master bedroom, bunkhouse, and living room. The heart of the home is a well-appointed kitchen in an open floor plan. A large, rustic farmhouse table beckons for a cozy family meal — or a lively game of Monopoly. 

Step out the back door to a covered lanai with an outside dining table and Adirondack rocking chairs. A pair of ceiling fans create a generous breeze if needed. Turtle Rock guests will stay entertained on the water with the use of a kayak, paddleboat, and rafts. Anglers are welcome to bring a pole and a boat. The dock is padded and equipped with hooks for tying up a boat or personal watercraft. Lake LBJ is known for white crappies and a variety of bass. 

One more perk to this charming cottage offers is its location. Turtle Rock is an easy walk or short bike ride to eateries and shopping in Kingsland. The home has bicycles on hand for guests to use. Points of interest nearby include Legends Golf Course, Lighthouse Country Club Golf Course, Longhorn Cavern State Park, and Inks Lake State Park.
