About the property

4 bedroom 2.5 bath with unobstructed open water Lake view & boat house

This waterfront lake house was built for family and friends to enjoy time together on the Lake. The views are breathtaking from most rooms in the house and the two person swing by the boathouse equipped with misters ensures water fun all year long. The disco ball by the boat house adds some fun to the nights as well!

Conroe is just the right blend of starry nights and city lights. And similarly, this house can provide a family-friendly, fun and activity-filled vacation or a romantic and relaxing getaway. Our guests have access to all the April Sound Country Club amenities.

The downstairs has a two story-high ceiling living room that has a big comfortable overstuffed couch and loveseat. The kitchen, dining area that seats 8 and kitchen counter bar that seats 2 all look out onto the unobstructed Lake views. The house has distressed dark grey hardwood throughout the house except for kitchen, utility room and bathrooms.

The kitchen is fully equipped and functional with stainless steel appliances, utensils, silverware, pots and pans and place settings that you could need. Service for 12 is provided. A limited amount of paper supplies (paper towels, napkins and toilet paper) are provided.

All bathrooms and the kitchen have granite countertops and new fixtures.

The patio has a cozy two-person swing at the boathouse and a picnic table so no matter what mood you're in, you can sit outside and breathe in the water view. A brand new outdoor kitchen with gas grill was just installed with granite counter top. We provide all BBQ utensils that you could need. Two adirondack chairs and small patio table are strategically placed on outdoor patio to catch the spectacular Lake Conroe sunsets. We also have counter height outdoor seating with 4 chairs and a table to enjoy the lake views.

At night, you can turn on the disco ball at the boat house and enjoy dancing to the moonlight by the lake.

A full gas grill iso available on the patio in case you catch some fish on the lake! We provide BBQ utensils so just bring your Grill Master skills!

The Master Bedroom is on the first level. It includes a King Size Tempurpedic mattress with luxury linens and anti-allergenic mattress covers and pillows. It includes his and hers walk-in closets and full bathroom with separate tub and shower that have thick bath towels and beach towels. A Smart TV with Suddenlink cable is in the Master. The room has a floor to ceiling wall of windows to enjoy the lake views as well as french doors that lead out to the balcony. But don't worry about the light--custom black out curtains cover the entire wall of windows.

Downstairs also has a guest bedroom with a Queen tempurpedic mattress, luxury linens and anti allergenic covers for mattress and pillows--the glass doors have black out window treatment for privacy and to ensure a good night's sleep.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms that both have black out custom window treatments. One bedroom has a Queen size tempurpedic mattress and full bathroom with thick cotton linens included. A beautiful balcony lets you enjoy the wonderful lake views. The other bedroom has a bunk bed with Twin on top and Full on the bottom as well as a separate twin bed. All mattresses are foam Tempurpedic and have luxury linens and anti allergenic mattress and pillow covers. This secondary bedroom also has a large balcony to enjoy the expansive and unobstructed lake views.

-state of the art gym

-indoor and outdoor tennis

-Snack bar, bar, and a restaurant, including a fabulous Sunday Brunch.

For Holiday weekends, the property celebrates 'Texas style' which is synonymous for BIG--Golf cart parade with prizes for best decorations, DJs at the pool, Evening Under the Stars themed parties, watermelon and pie eating contests, and much more. If you are looking for activities for the little ones, tennis and golf lessons are available and during peak/holiday weeks many creative and fun activities.

Within a few miles of the condo is the Waterpoint Marina and Naughty-Dayz where you can rent a boat for a few hours or the week and dock it right in front of the condo. Wonderful restaurants that overlook the lake are all around the Condo--most popular are Ransoms Steakhouse for a nice dinner, and the Magnolia Diner, The Toasted Yolk or the Montgomery Steakhouse for a wonderful breakfast or lunch. A local favorite is The Cozy Grape which is a wine bar. Must see at Lake Conroe are Papa's on the Lake, The Back Porch and Wolfie's Sports Bar all of which have amazing Lake Views.

For those that are not familiar with the area, it is 20 miles from Houston, Texas. Nestled in the lush Piney Woods of East Texas, Conroe embraces you with genuine Texas friendly hospitality. It has small town appeal and big city attractions just an hour away. If you are celebrating a special occasion, please let us know prior to arrival. No loud parties please. April Sound is a family environment.

About Maelia Davis

We are a family with 5 kids ranging in age from 24 to 11 so this house was put together with all of them (and their friends) in mind. We like to pick up and go to the Lake House so it is equipped with everything that we need. We love Lake Conroe and all the wonderful and fun restaurants and bars that welcome boats.

Maelia Davis purchased this house in 2014

Why Maelia Davis chose April Sound

We always dreamt of owning a Lake House right on the water with open water views. We wanted a house that was always going to have water in front of it no matter if there is a drought and we wanted it to have a boat house to keep all our toys ready for fun. We also wanted a house that could comfortably sleep all our kids, extended family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Very few homes have the kind of open water view this house has. The sunsets are beautiful and the fresh breeze while sitting on the boat house swing or the adirondack chairs on the back patio are incomparable. The location of the house is also special because you can swim right in front of the house without having to worry about boats and jet skis driving by full speed. We are in a no wake zone.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best stays we have ever had. We celebrated Thanksgiving / Christmas with my two children and their families. The house was perfect for this. Everything but the food was provided. The place was clean and beautiful; the location was fabulous! Everyone had a great time and we'd love to book this house again.

Wonderful Autumn Weekend at the Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this lovely lake house and it did not disappoint. The weather was perfect on the weekend that we stayed (Oct. 26 - 29th) and the view of the lake and surrounding areas were so breathtaking! The house was fully equipped with everything that we needed in the living room, game room, kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Last but not least, Maelia Davis (owner) was very helpful and responsive to all our questions and needs. All in all, we had another enjoyable and memorable stay at this wonderful lake house.

Owner's Response: We are so happy when we read a review like this. Especially from a return renter. We update the lake house every year in the off season so I think its especially nice for return visits. Our location on the lake truly is spectacular and allowed us to not experience damage during Harvey. Hope you come back again next year!

Our Lake House is in the April Sound Country Club. Established in 1972, April Sound Country Club is located just north of Houston, 20 minutes from The Woodlands on the sparkling shores of Lake Conroe.

-Spectacular clubhouse overlooking Lake Conroe.

-27 holes of golf – with nine holes geared to families, beginner and youth golfers.

-Short game practice area and aquatic driving range.

-Expansive pool complex with four pools, hot tub and poolside cabana.

-12 tennis courts – four covered.

-Two levels of patio with outdoor bar service, and the largest fire pit in the greater Houston area

-State-of-the-art fitness center.

-Tons of activities and events throughout the year.

Our Lake House is right on the water with industrial size cleats on bulkhead to tie up water toys. If you have a boat or a jet ski, you can dock it on the cleats (the boat house already has a boat in it) --make sure you check the water levels. And if you prefer to rent, we recommend renting a boat from Waterpoint Marina to explore Lake Conroe.

There are lots of great restaurants with live music and the Holidays are celebrated at the Country Club 'Texas' style...BIG! April Sound is a place to relax, enjoy the sun, the lake and all the outdoor activities the club provides.
