This is an inspiring destination set on a large private estate with beautiful presentation...and that's only the beginning. The Lakeway mountain estate cottage is also luxurious & spacious with chateau-style high-country views, a vintage Texas hill country feel ('spacious, warm & cozy'), and wonderful interior lodge-style wildlife and mountain decor. It is also technologically fully equipped, has all kinds of custom touches, and is immaculately cleaned and prepared for each guest.

Although guests wouldn't know it (because one feels as if he has been wisked away to a hill country mountain resort hideaway), the property is also located in the midst of some of the best restaurants, lakes, entertainment, music, recreation, and leisure activities in the state (including the famous Oasis Restaurant, Hudsons on the Bend, and the Grove, to name just a few).

Consider this awesome hideaway for rest & renewal escapes, anniversaries, wedding stays, weekend retreats, short vacations, or even solitary work projects.

IMPORTANT: Do not rely solely on the posted reservations calendar. If your preferred booking date appears to conflict with an existing reservation, make inquiry nonetheless. Availability may exist due to cancellation or scheduling changes.

Continuing Overview. If you have read this far, please read more. The details are stunning: A majestic 20 acre mountainside ranch estate, beautiful, quiet and protected, on the edge of Lakeway, just outside Austin, Texas with its own custom-built guest cottage--separately located atop a scenic section of the estate--and approached via winding private drive, over pond and creek, through trees, to scenic private views with parking and outdoor landscaping. Upon entering the cottage, guests are greeted by an exquisite large main living area with high-gloss floors, stonework & area rugs, an antique-style gas iron fireplace, comfortable leather seating, beautiful high pine wood ceilings, and furs all around. The view west—back through the windows--is incredible!

A granite full kitchen, large custom bathroom (with huge beautiful shower, 2 separate shower heads, & tile seating), & cozy private bedroom add to the smartly designed & spacious charm of the cottage. The decorated stairway and grand 2nd floor loft above—both of which overlook the main living area--allow for even more space to enjoy and entertain from.

Because the cottage is outfitted with a 55' wall-mounted LED HDTV, free WiFi, and convenient workspaces on both levels, you can easily check-in with the world, home, and office--without missing a beat.

The cottage exterior boasts expansive outdoor living and areas to explore (private porch, patio, stone paths, artistically crafted majestic rock walls, and a smoker/grill, to name a few.

Only 4.5 miles from Lake Travis, 3.5 miles from the Lakeway Airpark and 25 miles from Austin Bergstrom International Airport. A perfect escape with custom up-to-date furnishings, technology and amenities!

For those venturing beyond the estate grounds, Lakeway Mountain is surrounded by wonderful places to visit: hiking/walking trails, spas, lake and water sports, golf, places to dine and shop, wineries, as well as opportunities for further day excursions into Austin, Fredericksburg, Wimberley, New Braunfels, and other central Texas arts communities. Guests claim that the cottage's location is ideal, and its convenience, beauty and privacy unequalled for the area.



1,400 square foot stone guesthouse/chateau/cottage decorated in vintage Texas Hill country style by the owners with high pine ceilings, interior stone and wood in the great room, and a beautiful black iron gas fireplace (operational 11/30-3/1 with instant on-off). Various furs, hides and leather including a large bear rug adorn the main room with deer, turkey, bobcat, and other display mounts throughout. The loft boasts a large 6-person table for work or small gatherings. Seasonal paint quarter horses, rolling fenced pastures and trees, white rail fences, a one-of-a-kind working stone barn, a spring-fed pond, and more.

The cottage is quiet, private and secluded, a distant 250 feet away from the owners' main house. It is a hide-away trappers cabin for the male, and a romantic, quiet and tastefully decorated chateau with gorgeous kitchen, bath, and bedroom for the female.

Beautiful high country panoramas and sunsets create a one of a kind Texas Hill Country escape.

A stone path from the cottage leads up to a patio overlook with outdoor fireplace and smoker/grill—perfect for a sunset bottle of wine or just relaxing under the Texas stars after dark. You will feel like you are at a private Texas mountain lodge, yet with all the modern conveniences.

Stroll the property, explore the barn, see the pond, hike the parks and awesome nearby nature trails, play the area golf courses, enjoy Lake Travis water sports, or scout Lakeway and nearby Austin for the best area shopping, stores and restaurants; or venture west just 30 minutes or so into the Hill Country to visit the wineries, small towns and quaint shops.Better yet, just stay in the cottage, and enjoy the privacy and amenities. A perfect spot for weekend sport watchers also!

This awesome hideout is only 25 miles from downtown Austin on the edge of Lakeway, 30 miles from the Austin Bergstrom International Airport. It's 15 minutes to the Lakeway Marina and Live Oak golf Course. Three public golf courses (Falcon Head, Flintrock Falls, The Hills) and the World of Tennis facility are all within a short 3 miles. The new Lakeway Regional Medical center is 5 minutes from the cottage (out of sight, but there if you need it). The Hill Country Galleria Mall and Backyard music venue are both only ten minutes away. During a Backyard event, one can relax on the high patio vista or cottage front porch under the stars and often pick up the faint sound of live music from world famous bands drifting in on the night air.

Boating, golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, fine restaurants, live music and winery opportunities surround this location. Day trips to Fredericksburg (1 ½ hours away), Johnson City, and the LBJ Ranch afford great opportunities to explore the Texas Hill Country from this Lakeway base. Downtown Austin, The University of Texas, seasonal Austin bats under the Congress Bridge, Longhorn Cavern and Inner Space Cavern, discount outlet malls (Round Rock & San Marcos) are all within 45 miles.

If you enjoy water sports, the Lakeway Marina is just 15 minutes from the cottage. You can rent boats and jet skis there. Fishing, water-skiing, and other lake activities are enjoyed year-round.

This estate cottage is one of a kind, and is the perfect place for (1) a couples scenic vacation retreat (with beautiful sunsets and area restaurants); (2) an individual's peaceful and solitary escape from the fast-paced urban world; (3) a writer's hideaway with majestic views, paths and points for inspiration; or (4) an executives' business retreat. The cottage has its own access drive, allowing guests to easily come and go between the cottage and the many sites, restaurants, and leisure activities that the surrounding area offers.

If you are interested in making memories and need a private place to take some awesome photos: (1) alongside a horse at sunset, or (2) in and around a beautiful hill country native stone barn, or (3) maybe in the panorama of surrounding fields and trees, this is the place to do it.
