“Loved the Old Goat House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 for a stay in September 2013
1
person found this review helpful

First let me say the owners Mark & Ron were great to work with. They answered any "renters questions" I had and yes I had several. The entire rental weekend was without incident and my security deposit was refunded quickly! The rental fee and security deposit was handled via Paypal....so very safe and secure! The owners were very accomodating to my request for early check-in....just a great experience!! The house was super clean and "bug free" If you've read any of my previous reviews you will see priority is clean and NO bugs!!

Now for the details:
We were in Canyon Lake Sept. 2013 for a wedding at Hideaway on the Horseshoe and decided to stay at the Old Goat House. The house is actually within walking distance of the Hideout...it was raining while we were there so opted to drive (all of maybe a minute, felt kinda silly!)

Absolutely right next door only a few steps is a small strip center, hair/nail salon (make an appt as they don't do walk-ins, seems the local females don't play well together so there is only one stylist/nail person available due to the female rivalry...yep that's what I thought also). The salon houses a small boutique...was fun to look around.

Across the road on one corner is a 7 Eleven. Between strip center and Daisy Dukes is an ice machine...something like $2 but bring your own container. Daisy Dukes Bar is also around the corner from The Old Goat House a very easy walking distance. Whitewater Ampitheater is within maybe 1/4-1/2 mile a nice walking distance, but might consider driving if you have individuals with leg/knee issues.

A very short walk behind the house and the other two houses on the street is the river; however, there is no direct access right there. A short walk over to Whitewater and you are able to access river.

The house itself is rustic and unique! Goat themed artwork by local artist in each room. The owners are in process of redoing the interior, what has been done so far is just really cool. Three bedrooms each with their own bathroom & flat screen TV...snag the first bedroom you come to if with a group as it's bathroom is awesomel! The vanities are made of thick slabs of cedar or some other type of wood with copper sinks....love the look!

Beds are heavenly, all linens, bedding, pillows (brought my own pillow), towels, wash cloths are provided. Extra blankets are in the closets. Night stands, clocks, toilet paper all is there. Now I did bring my own shampoo and body wash and glad I did as none of that was there. Also bring your hairdryer. There is an ironing board and iron, washer & dryer with detergent (closet behind front door). Keyless front door entry, owner will provide you with entry code once lease agreement/payment has been made. Extra manual locks on the door. On a dead end short strip of a road with 3 total houses, very safe and quiet but if you sit out on the deck at night in the summer bet you could enjoy the music from Whitewater or Daisy Dukes!!

Full kitchen with everything plates, cups, glasses, pots/pans, utensils and even spices! Baggies, foil, handiwrap it's all there. Coffeemaker (not a Kuerig), coffee filters, microwave, fullsize fridge, dishwasher (and dishwasher detergent) and stove (no oven) but there is a toaster oven. This is a home setup and ready to be lived in! Cuptowels, papertowels, everything you need. As I said earlier there is a 7Eleven just across the street so if you need something I'm sure you could get it there (probably pricey).
For only a 1200 sq ft house this place can hold a large amount of people. The living room (love how they have done the new tile floor) is huge and would accomodate several air mattresses (as a courtesy, be sure and let owners know if you are doing this) with a large wall mounted flat screen TV with movies and games. They are in process of placing the old metal ceiling tiles on the vaulted ceiling, so it is a work in progress....will look great once finished. The owner has stocked the house with fishing poles, hats and other misc fun stuff. Huge backyard with charcoal grill and large outdoor deck with plenty of chairs (8 I believe) and a table.

Now all that being said...if you are looking for perfection, then this house probably won't meet your expectations; however, if you are looking for a charming and unique place, loaded with character and close to the river with all the amenitites of home....do not hesitate to rent The Old Goat House. We truly enjoyed ourselves and if ever in the area again will certainly stay here!! Be sure and sign the guest book!!

Thanks Ron and Mark for a great weekend!!!

“Wonderful Place to Stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Stayed at the "Goat House" with my family and we had a WONDERFUL TIME!! The house doesn't look like much from the outside (don't let that deceive you) but when we walked in, the kids were like- "wow"! The home is nicely decorated throughout with a cozy cabin feel, and in the best location.The house has everything of home and is surrounded by many places to take the kids and spend time with family. Thanks to Ron who made us feel welcomed and even provided us with information for some great places to see. We stayed for three nights, wish we could have stayed longer! We will definitely be back!!
