This was our second time to visit Grandanne's, its just like visiting family. From the brandy slush on arrival to the blueberry pancakes, its a relaxing and refreshing get away. We have had a full house both times and even with all the kids and adults, there was enough room for everyone. Right on lake and the marina in walking distance means easy access to swimming and kayaking (we brought our own kayak) to jet ski and boat rentals only minutes away. The zip line is about 3 minutes away by car and the Oasis is about 10 minutes away so the location is really great. Anne has accumulated enough books around the house to be a small library, so its easy to put your feet up and relax at any time. Grandanne is a wonderful lady and she has always gone out of her way to make us feel at home and welcome.

From the Brandy Slush on arrival to the blueberry pancakes, GrandAnne's is a favorite of our family. The kids feel right at home, nothing fancy, just like visiting your grandparent's house. The beds are comfortable, plenty of places to sit back and read or nap. A short walk down the stone steps to the lake and you can go swimming off the boat house (we brought our kayak this time too.) There is also a spacious deck on the back of the house where we spent most evenings. The marina is right across the inlet (15 minute walk) if you want to rent jet ski's or a boat and the Lake Travis Zip Line is only a few miles away. We plan to go back.

Anne welcomes you like you're part of the family, and the location was ideal for us. Thirty minute drive into Austin, yet it felt secluded. The dock and lake view, back patio, beautiful trees and landscaping are all very relaxing. It is a charming place. The handicap access is true for inside with wide door ways and easy access from the first floor bedroom to the large bath, however getting into the house involves two large steps at the front door. Just so others are aware, there are large steps onto the back patio, but the first step is big enough for a wheelchair. Handicapp access is limited if not impossible into the back yard.The second floor bedroom is roomy, clean with a nice bathroom but it is accessed by steep stairs. The house was a bit crowded for five with no place to hang all of our stuff, but overall it is a charming place. Great for a get away weekend.

Thank you for the lovely review. In response to handicap issue, the 400 pound motorized wheelchair was a challenge. The family managed very patiently with the grandfather. Thanks for mentioning the closet space; I will work on that. Space is available in the chest of drawers in the bedrooms.

We had a marvelous stay at GrandAnne's on the Lake! A darling, quaint home on a beautiful lake with so much privacy gave us just the relaxation we needed. GrandAnnes elaborate library was an unexpected delight, with a myriad of genres! We were welcomed with such sweet southern hospitality that made us feel like we really had just come home to grandma's. The location is perfect, so close to Austin, where we were visiting friends and family, yet out in the beautiful rolling hill country, in a quiet neighborhood with gorgeous lake access for peaceful days, and yet close to lively entertainment, water sports, and great shopping, fun restaurants, with magnificent views. We were delighted with every aspect of our stay and will definitely be back!!

First off, I apologize to ya Anne for the delay. Secondly, I wasn't able to click on the ratings up above so I will just write them in here. The rooms were outstanding. We loved the old timey feeling of the place. Just like gramma's house :-) The service, well, we have to say was outstanding as well and truly feel the personal conversation with Anne was a nice touch during breakfast. Her husband Bob was a very accommodating person even though we only spoke briefly upon arrival. The value I thought exceeded my expectations as I figured being in someone's home would be quite costly in comparison to a hotel but it was not, very similar and with a lake view. The whole place was very clean and organized. As far as onsite dining goes, we loved the back porch area with the picnic table as well as the dining area inside the lower part of the house with its spacious kitchen area. We will definitely be back Ms. Anne. It was an outstanding time for our very first time in your B&B.

My husband and I visited this bed and breakfast a few weeks ago, just to get out of the city for a couple nights! We had mixed feelings about the stay, so I'm going to give both the positives and the negatives. Pros: 1. The location is great- the inn is in hill country so the drive is beautiful, with winding roads and tons of trees. It's close the The Oasis which is a great place to go for dinner. We also went hiking one day at Pernenales Falls, which I would definitely recommend! 2. The breakfast the first morning was great- pancakes, eggs, and bacon :) And unlimited fresh coffee! Cons: 1. The house is no longer on the lake, due to low lake levels. I realize this is completely out of anyone's control, but it would have been nice to know. Apparently the inlet of Lake Travis has been dried up for 8 years, so we didn't get the "on the lake" aspect we were looking forward to. 2. During breakfast the first morning, Anne asked if it was okay if she didn't cook breakfast for us the second morning, due to wanting to go out of town herself. We were paying for the bed-and-breakfast experience, and it was disappointing to not receive that. She did leave a packaged container of cinnamon rolls in the fridge and told us we could make them ourselves, but neither of us like cinnamon rolls so we chose to go out instead. Also, their RV was still there in the morning when we left, so we were a little confused about why she couldn't/didn't make breakfast... Overall, it was a nice vacation, but I wouldn't recommend this place, nor would we go back. We read a lot of reviews before going, so we were somewhat surprised. We've stayed at other bed and breakfasts and had amazing experiences, and we depend a lot on reviews, so I hope this is helpful to others looking to travel in this area!

I am sorry you were disappointed in the Lake Travis view. Lake Travis most definitely fluctuates, and, going forward, I will be sure to mention the water level with potential guests. The good news is we are lakefront now due to the recent rains. You all did get an upgrade to the whole downstairs (master bedroom, several rooms and full kitchen) I know you enjoyed dinner at The Oasis and also the local Honey Bee Quilt Shop which were recommended by me. As far breakfast on the second day, I apologize. Candidly, more than half of my guests enjoy their privacy and prefer that I provide juice, coffee, pastries, etc. I try to balance my personal life and the B&B schedule. I actually did leave close to 9:00 AM after some last second details. Thank you for taking time to share feedback about your stay at GrandAnne’s on the Lake. Your opinion is important to me.

The house was very quaint...Ms. Anne shares her life thru pictures and books as evidenced by all of the "memorabilia" displayed through out her past home. She lives off property and we had the entire lake-side home to ourselves. Spacious deck was so inviting to the sunset. She arrived on our cue to make us a custom ordered breakfast with fresh fruit. Her blueberry pancakes lived up to their reputation as were the highlight of breakfast. I enjoyed this stay, but even more I enjoyed her and her family.

Once in a while you find a place that provides immediate relaxation, feels very familiar and lets you breath in nature itself. I have stayed at GrandAnne's a number of times - and it always feels like visiting your favorite aunt at her lakeside retreat. It is very rustic, unpretentious, and extremely comfortable. If you get a chance, take a bar of soap and shampoo to the dock and bathe in the lake - it is primitive joy. Thanks Anne for the nice breakfasts. hope you see you all soon.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at GrandAnne's this weekend. The home was quaint, cozy and the perfect setting for six ladies to enjoy a much needed weekend away. Mrs. Anne was a very kind and hospitable host throughout our stay. I would highly recommend this home to others!

Loved sitting on the huge deck in the evening sipping a glass of wine. We cooked steaks on the grill and just relaxed. A perfect getaway from the city. Anne is a gracious, attentive host.
