VACATION SITE PROPERTY OVERVIEW.

You will love it! This storybook property has hosted couples visiting the Texas hill country from all over the world and is consistently 5 Star* rated. The accommodation is a custom-built estate guesthouse/cottage --independently located atop a scenic section of the owners' estate property--and accessed via winding private drive, over pond and creek, through fields and trees, then up a hillside with scenic views, private guest parking, and outdoor landscaping. The hosts are friendly, the property majestic!

Guests enjoy authentic chateau-style high-country views, starry nights, cool breezes,, a vintage storybook Texas hill country feel ('quiet, spacious, & cozy'), and wonderful interior lodge-style wildlife and mountain decor. Finished out in 2012, the chateau is fully tech-equipped, has all kinds of custom touches, and is immaculately cleaned and prepared for each guest.

Upon entering the chateau, guests are greeted by an exquisite large main living area with high-gloss floors, stonework & area rugs, an antique-style gas iron fireplace (with instant "on-off" operation), comfortable leather seating, separate love seat, beautiful high pine wood ceilings, and furs placed all around. The view and scenery back west through the panoramic windows is inspiring, peaceful and relaxing. Through the windows, guests also observe the area's native wildlife, birds and hummingbirds, via feeders perfectly placed by the owners.

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

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

Outdoors, the chateau shines with high-country patio views, living space and areas to explore (private porch,, stone paths, flowerbeds, winding private roads, artistically crafted rock walls, seasonal wildflowers, & private pond, just to name a few.

For those venturing beyond the estate grounds, there are nearby hiking/walking trails, spas, lake and water activities, golf courses, places to dine and shop (including the Hill Country Galleria 3.5 miles away), local wineries, as well as opportunities for excursions into Austin, Fredericksburg, Wimberley, New Braunfels, and other central Texas arts communities. Guests report that the location is ideal, and its convenience, beauty and privacy unequalled for the area.

VACATION SITE PROPERTY DETAIL

--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).

--Furs, hides and leather warm 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.

--Quarter horses, rolling pastures and trees, white rail fences, a one-of-a-kind working stone barn, a spring-fed pond, and more grace the larger estate property.

--This is a custom-built independent stone structure...often described as a private lodge and hide-away for the male, and a romantic and tastefully decorated chateau with gorgeous kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom for the female.

--Beautiful high country panoramas and sunsets create a one of a kind authentic Texas Hill Country experience.

--A stone path from the chateau 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. Guests tell us they feel like they are at a private Texas mountain lodge, yet with all the modern conveniences.

ACTIVITIES & SURROUNDINGS

A major plus for this property is that, although privately located, it is also right in the midst of some of the best dining, shopping, entertainment, music, recreation, lake, and leisure activities in the state!

Stroll the property, explore the barn, relax by the pond, hike the parks and nearby nature trails, play the area golf courses, enjoy Lake Travis boating and water sports, or explore Lakeway and nearby Austin for the best shopping, stores and fine restaurants; or venture west just 20-30 minutes or so into the Hill Country to visit the wineries, small towns and quaint shops. Or just sit & enjoy the privacy, amenities, birds and wildlife from the panoramic windows. A perfect spot for weekend TV sport watchers also!

The property is only 4.5 miles from Lake Travis, 3.5 miles from the Lakeway Airpark and 25 miles from Austin Bergstrom International Airport. If you enjoy water sports, the Lakeway Marina is 10 minutes away (boats and jet skis can be rented by the hour). Fishing, water-skiing, and other lake activities are enjoyed year-round. Three public golf courses (Falcon Head, Flintrock Falls, The Hills) and the World of Tennis facility are all within 3 miles. The new Lakeway Regional Medical center is 5 minutes from the cottage (out of sight, but there if you need it). Both the Hill Country Galleria and Shops at the Galleria are only 10 minutes away, and offer shopping, dining and entertainment.

Day trips to Fredericksburg (1½ hours away), Johnson City and the LBJ Ranch, Wimberley, and New Braunfels afford great opportunities to explore the Texas Hill Country from this Lakeway base. Downtown Austin, Zilker Botanical Gardens, The University of Texas, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, and the Texas State Capitol complex are also all within 20 miles.

VACATION SITE FINAL NOTES.

This property will not disappoint! It is one of a kind, and is the perfect place for (1) a couples scenic weekend escape/vacation retreat and base to explore the hill country (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) a visiting executives’ business retreat for short stays. The custom accommodation has its own access drive, allowing guests to easily come and go.

The property is also occasionally made available for photo and film shoots, and events of 25 persons or less. To make memories: (1) around an open fire, (2) alongside a horse at sunset, (3) in and around a beautiful hill country stone stable, or (4) maybe in the panorama of surrounding fields, flowers and trees (see our site photos), please check with us as to availability.

IMPORTANT: The property is scenic, beautiful, and landscaped and maintained in a natural state. Seasonal change, short and long-term weather patterns and events (heat, cold, rain, drought, flood, etc) will of course affect appearance.
