Texas Lake House Real Estate: The Hidden Gems

Discovering the Hidden Gems of the Texas Hill Country

What do we look for in a hidden gem? Above all else, value - for your wallet and lifestyle. Join Lakefront Group crew Hunter Croan and Frank Baker as they unpack the best-kept secrets of the Texas Hill Country!

Years of experience have proved one thing: the best Texas lake houses to invest in give you the most bang for your buck. Sometimes, that's not necessarily the home with the biggest price tag.

When you branch out into areas few people know about, you open the doors to unique ways to enjoy your lakefront property.

We know we can count on river-style lakes to tick all the right boxes for a reasonable price. These areas boast fantastic real estate and a strong sense of community that will make you feel right at home.

Besides kayaking to boating and water skiing, exciting ways to enjoy the water are at your disposal. With that said, let's take a look at some of our favorite hidden spots along lakes in Texas!

Lake Placid: Best Value for a Lake House in Texas

Lake Placid is one of many river-style lakes that offers big lake luxury at a reasonable price. In fact, many of our river-lake converts come from larger lakes like Lake McQueeny or LBJ.

This member of the Guadalupe Lakes is almost indistinguishable from larger lakes in terms of its waters, community, and benefits. But unlike other options in the area, Lake Placid has quick and easy access to Houston via I-10. The hustle and bustle of the city is just about two and a half hours away.

Lake Marble Falls: Little Lake, Big Possibilities

Lake Marble Falls is the little brother to the expansive Lake LBJ. The difference? Marble Falls offers the same uses, the same boating capabilities, and a lot more bang for your buck.

Reasonable real estate prices aren't the only draw to this lake, though; it's also home to a gorgeous view of the Colorado River. Restaurants and plenty of opportunities to shop are also mere minutes away.
