About Marian S.

Hi! I'm Marian, mother to 4 active boys ranging in age from 5 - 14 yrs old. We reside in a suburb of Austin, TX. I'm busy with my sons' football, basketball, baseball and school activities. I enjoy volunteering as a science fair judge and mentor for Hays CISD and Austin Energy's Regional Science Fair.

I'm a life long collector of miniatures and dollhouses. As an adult I have trained in glass blowing and lampwork at Wheaton Village. I have a green thumb for growing a variety of ferns in my Texas home. Both owls and cardinals have a special meaning to my family. I've incorporated a little of each of these hobbies into the decor at Lakeside Ferns.

Great Place to Mix Business with Pleasure

  • 5 of 5

I joined my husband on a business trip to Glastonbury, CT after booking Lakeside Ferns Vacation Home. So glad I selected this home and took the road trip with him while leaving the kiddos with Grandma. While my husband worked during the days, I was able to sleep in and relax in this very comfortable home.

The owner provided an electronic welcome book that I pulled up on my cell phone. It was helpful in finding local attractions, restaurants, and home instructions. The home owner, Marion, has thought of every detail which can be found in the welcome book. She even contacted me the first morning of our stay to make sure we arrived safely and everything was to our liking.

After business hours, my husband and I had a romantic getaway! Mark, the caretaker, had loaded the wood burning fireplace and we were able to relax with a glass of wine in front of the fire while watching the sunset on the lake.

Despite some construction and road repair around the lake, the house is located on a very quiet and private street. Looking forward to returning for weekend stay in the spring with the entire family.

Warm and inviting

  • 5 of 5

One of the best VRBOs we have booked. Immediately felt at home. Beautifully decorated home with many thoughtful extras. The beds were so comfortable, the bathrooms and kitchen were all well stocked. Mark was very helpful. We would highly recommend this home to any travelers and we hope to return soon. Thank you, Marian, for sharing your lovely home.

This home is beautiful, well-appointed, many extras too numerous to mention, eg complimentary coffee and tea in the kitchen. Lavish, luxurious bath towels--even a bath robe you have in a 5 star hotel. The home is elegantly furnished, and the porch overlooking the lake is comfortable with tables, chairs and a glider. The minute you walk in the door, you feel at home. All bedrooms have king-size beds with very nice mattresses. The bathroom upstairs must have been a bedroom--it is so large and with a clawfoot tub which invites you to soak and relax. Mark, the caretaker, was on site the minute we arrived. And was available 24/7 for emergencies. I want to return here next year.

" A Little Piece of Heaven"

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I with my daughter and niece just spent the last three days revisiting Lake Pocotopaug. We spent our summers here with our grandparents and never wanted to go home. Funny how we had the same feeling this week. We had a delightful stay, relaxing and catching up with life. Thank you Marion for sharing your charming home. I can't wait to share this little piece of heaven with the rest of our family. It was perfect!
