Watch the birds, water, or life go by on a quiet cove with a view of Lake Livingston. Perfect for couples, solo adventurers, or business travelers, our two bedrooms each have king bed and TV. Relax or go, Dancing Egret is a great central point for birding, antiquing, hiking, water sports, or recharging. We're happy to hang with you on the deck over coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening, or not. All guests receive a complimentary bottle of our Dancing Egret wine at check-in.

The space

Our multi-level home began as a small fishing cabin and has been renovated to modernize and add space. Most of the living space is on the split upper level. The 2 guest bedrooms, both with king beds and flat screen smart TVs, are on the kitchen level and share a bathroom.

Guest access

Guests have access to the kitchen and complimentary coffee and teas are available all day. The family room and dining area area also accessible. Enjoy your morning coffee on the 2nd level deck overlooking the cove and the bird feeding frenzy. Our boathouse includes a table and chairs, great for afternoon relaxing. If you have a boat, feel free to bring it. We have a large pad to park it and a boat ramp is nearby to launch. Our grills are your grills while you're here.

Interaction with guests

Jeff and I love to socialize and visit. We share our afternoon cocktail hours and evening pontoon rides on beautiful Lake Livingston, or we can be pretty inconspicuous.

Other things to note

We have 4 cats that frequent our deck, but typically stay scarce when new folks are around.

My wife and I were totally blown away by the beauty, quiet solitude, and the total awesomeness of Dancing Egret. Travellers could not ask for better hosts than Jeff and Beth, or a place to stay. We will absolutely be staying with them should the opportunity come again.

Could not have been more pleased! Stay was wonderful. Sitting on porch overlooking lake was incredible! Jeff and Beth were the perfect hosts! I highly recommend the Dancing Egret!

Myself and three friends were in town for the Onalaska Triathlon race, and found Beth and Jeff’s lakeside retreat very convenient and homey. Beth and Jeff went above and beyond what we expected of our Airbnb hosts: by allowing us to have a flexible checkout time in order to come back and shower after the race, by serving some of Jeff’s homemade wine, by sitting and visiting with us over football, sharing with us nearly anything available in their home. We all truly felt welcomed and taken care of by these folks, and I suggest that if you are looking at this review then you look no further. We hope to one day come back out for some fishing and relaxing on the lake!

Great people, great location. We really enjoyed our stay!

This was our first experience with airbnb and we're positive it will be the best. Beth and Jeff were absolutely wonderful hosts. Super friendly, informative, accommodating, generous, fun loving, great people. They and their home were exactly as described. Such a relaxing, comfy and beautiful place to stay, not to mention all the great wildlife and birds. Jeff's delightful wine and the boat rides were icing on the cake. We loved it so much we want to move to the same area, and now we have fantastic new friends! We highly recommend the Dancing Egret as THE place to stay on Lake Livingston!

We had a great time during our stay on the lake everything was as advertised. Jeff's wine was a lovely touch. We even received some clippings and seeds from Beth's beautiful back yard. We will definitely be back and I will certainly recommend the dancing egret to friends/family.

My husband Jeff and I are semi-retired and living in the deep east Texas Piney Woods. Cruising far off places is always at the top of our bucket list, when we're not enjoying our family, 3 daughters and 5 grandchildren. Our home on Lake Livingston, Texas second largest lake, offers glorious sunsets, a variety of birds dancing at our feeders, and quiet, peaceful hours to think big thoughts. We enjoy entertaining, and owning a B&B was once a dream. Airbnb is a great substitute. Our kitchen is small but enables us toproduce great meals, which we often share. Jeff makes and bottles his own wine, Dancing Egret. Beth grows orchids and tropical plants. Both of us love Broadway, especially the musicals. Come share our little bit of heaven.
