Perfect Lakeside Retreat

4.6 on August 14, 2018

We have stayed at GrandAnnes many times over the years and really love the charm and comfort of the home and the location is excellent for the lake as you are close to dining or shopping if you want to cook out on the great patio with plenty of seating. We can't say enough about Anne and her hospitality.

Fun place to relax and enjoy the lake

We visit every year, a great value with fun in and on Lake Travis. Swimming is right off the boat house, marina is an eight minute walk to rent a boat or a Seadoo. House is comfortable and quaint. GrandAnne is just as kind and friendly as you could hope and her blueberry pancakes are great way to start your day.

Return visit to fun and tranquility

Return visit to GrandAnne's after 3 years. I found the place as charming as the last time we visited. Anne remember us from last visit, and rolled out the red carpet. Lake Travis is amazing, Volente beach super convenient (20 miles from Austin), and GrandAnne's is a relaxation machine. Anne makes you feel right at home. On our way back, started planning our next visit.

I returned to GrandAnne's after my last visit 3 years ago. After the first night, I was wondering why it took me so long to return. I found the place as charming as before. Anne remembered us, and we got the royal treatment. On our way back home, we felt like we had just had a great visit with a family friend and started planning our return trip. Lake Travis is amazing, Volente is nice and convenient (only 20 miles from Austin), and GrandAnne's is the lake home you wish you always had available to you. Thank you Anne for your hospitality - see you again soon.

Anne was very gracious and the B and B was very convenient to VIP boat rental. However, the property was tired, in need of repairs and refurbishment.

Innkeeper Response
I am happy that the boat rental went well for your husband’s birthday. Some repairs are needed and are scheduled. Thank you for your review.

Memorable Moments Made & Treasured

5 on May 07, 2018

We were warmly greeted by Grand Anne, herself, into our comfortable quarters after our long journey. Upon entering Grand Anne's, we were welcomed into her cozy, quaint entry,a room full of stories to be told. Then, we proceeded into the spacious, furnished kitchen and dining area providing all forms of entertainment from Champagne toasts to convivial games. The convenience of a washer & dryer is situated next to the spacious bathroom and bedroom quarters downstairs,which leads into the living room filled with a personalized, homey ambiance. Once you step outside, your eyes are filled with a large outdoor terrace/patio chairs & tables, and barbeque, overlooking Lake Travis. Upstairs is the master suite with a inviting, king-sized bed, bathtub/shower, and attached private balcony with a view of the grounds and Lake Travis vicinity. Grand Anne provided all the basic toiletries, kitchen supplies, water sports necessities, tv/vcr/dvd, assorted book collection & dvds/cds/vcr tapes, Wi-Fi service, and more...She checked on us daily to make sure that our needs were taken care of and our stay was most enjoyable. It was Southern hospitality at its finest at a great value. We truly had a marvelous time at Volente on Lake Travis and a large part of it is thanks to Grand Anne's warm reception. We look forward to visiting y'all real soon!

Grandchildren's visit

4.6 on January 18, 2018

Wonderful and convenient accommodations for our grandchildren and great grandchildren. GrandAnne's has enough room for a 5 year old and 3 year old to roam and play inside and outside. They have already asked to come back during the summer so they can swim and go fishing. Ann Steichen is wonderful to deal with and accommodates our every wish. We will certainly have GrandAnne's as our first choice for future family accommodations with visiting us. PS - we live in Volente so the location of GrandAnne's couldn't be better for family visits. We certainly recommend GrandAnne's for a relaxing visit with lots of activities close by. Paul and Millie Wilson

8 Year Old's Birthday Celebration!

We spent a wonderful weekend at GrandAnne's On The Lake and Volente Beach Water Park! Anne was warm and welcoming and the B and B was much larger and prettier than I envisioned from the photos. The large yard was super for the 4 boys to run and play in. The views from the balcony and deck were spectacular! Relaxing, relaxing! We are already talking about our next trip down to visit the Austin cousins and staying at GrandAnne's! Thank you, Anne! You were a fabulous hostess!

Scenic stay on the lake

Sweet lakefront property. Anne is wonderful. She wants you to have a great stay and will do everything she can to make you feel at home. I stayed upstairs and it felt like I was staying with family. I daily walked out to the dock and sat by the water. Very peaceful. Volente is gorgeous and you must see a sunset at The Oasis which is right down the street. I like that it felt like you were away from the rush, but could get to conveniences easily if needed. There is also weekend entertainment relatively close if you would like to have a nightcap or listen to music/karaoke.
