VACATION SITE PROPERTY OVERVIEW.

You will love it! This accommodation has hosted couples from all over the world and is repeatedly rated 5 Star. Please read the Reviews. The property itself is a majestic 20 acre mountainside estate--wooded, pastoral and protected--hidden on the edge of Lakeway, just outside Austin. The storybook chateau is a custom-built estate guesthouse/cottage--independently located atop a scenic section of the estate property--and accessed via winding private drive, over pond and creek, through fields and trees, then up a hillside with scenic views, private parking and outdoor landscaping.

*A major plus for this property is that, although private and secluded, it is actually located in the midst of some of the best dining, entertainment, music, recreation, lake and leisure activities in the state.

The precise location is a majestic 20 acre mountainside ranch estate--beautiful, quiet and protected--hidden on the edge of Lakeway, just outside Austin. The storybook cottage is a custom-built estate guesthouse--located atop a scenic section of the estate--and independently approached via winding private drive, over pond and creek, through fields and trees, then up a hillside with scenic views, private cottage 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 and scenery back west through the panoramic windows is both incredible and relaxing (with guests also able to observe the area's native birds via a feeder perfectly placed by the owners).

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 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.

Returning outdoors, the cottage shines with majestic patio views, living space and areas to explore (private porch, patio, stone paths, flowerbeds, winding private roads, artistically crafted majestic 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, wineries, as well as opportunities for 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.

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 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.

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

--The cottage is a custom-built independent stone structure. It is 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 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.

ACTIVITIES & SURROUNDINGS

Boating, golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, fine restaurants, live music and winery opportunities surround this location.

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 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. Or just relax & enjoy the cottage 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. Rent boats and jet skis there. 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 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 and Backyard music venue are both only ten minutes away. During a Backyard event, one can relax on the cottage porch or on the high patio vista under the stars and often pick up the faint sound of live music from world famous bands drifting in on the night air.

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, The University of Texas, and the Texas State Capitol complex are also all within 20 miles.

VACATION SITE FINAL COMMENTS.

After you book, make sure the Owners provide you with their Area Dining and Activities Summary! It is excellent! This property will not disappoint!

OWNER NOTES.

The storybook cottage is one of a kind, and is the perfect place for (1) a couples scenic 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 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.

The property is also occasionally made available for short-term photo and film shoots, portraits, or small weddings and events of 25 persons or less. If you need a private place to take photos, hold a small event, or just 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 and beautiful, but maintained primarily in a natural state. Owners are not responsible for variations in property appearance and condition, whether due to seasonal changes, short or long-term weather patterns and events (heat, cold, rain, drought, flood, etc) or otherwise.
