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.

We had a wonderful stay at Gran Anne's. It was just way too short. Everything was wonderful- we felt like royalty from the moment we entered. Sitting out on the deck at night under the Texas Sky was soul rejuvenating and so peaceful. Slept great in the quiet neighborhood and it was hard to leave when our stay was over. You won't be disappointed with your stay- no matter how short it might be. Don't miss this jewel on Lake Travis!

My wife and I needed a weekend getaway for the Valentines/Wife's birthday weekend and we were lucky to have found this place. The house is tucked away in the hills just outside of Austin overlooking Lake Travis. Everything was so nice and quiet. Exactly just what we wanted. Anne recommended a restaurant, The Oasis, for dinner which also was a great suggestion. The house is so warm and friendly, we felt like we were at home. We can't wait to bring the whole family out here to enjoy this wonderful hidden gem. And yes, the blueberry pancakes are wonderful!
Natalie and Dan, How kind of you to write such a lovely review. I hope to have you again in the future. Blessings, Anne

Grand Anne’s is a beautiful out of the way (but not too far out of the way) homey place to hide out in for a few days. We loved all of Anne’s personal touches which made us feel right at home.
Thank you for the lovely review. It helps to get recent reviews. Love, Anne and Bob

We had a great weekend getaway! The B&B was very quiet and relaxing. We had a great breakfast of fruit and rolls for Saturday. Sunday we could have had blueberry pancakes which I know would have been great but we had plans with my sister for breakfast.

We stayed at GrandAnne's while visiting family in the area in January. Wish we could have visited in season to enjoy the two large decks and private yard. The B & B was very private and large as two couples shared the whole house. Its not fancy or formal but it is warm and comfortable. Our own private lake house!

We live in the area and had heard of GrandAnne's great reputation - and immediately thought of it when we needed extra space for visiting family. The owner, Anne, welcomed my family into a warm and cozy home, making sure they had everything they needed during their stay. In the mornings, a delicious, homemade breakfast was offered. And in the evenings, snacks and a nightcap liqueur was available for them. The accommodations were comfy and I only heard rave remarks from them about their stay. GrandAnne's will be our number one choice for future visits!
