We have rented numerous properties in Austin the past 7 years and this is the best so far. Gorgeous views from the many decks that are furnished with comfortable patio furniture. We grilled out several nights due to the very nice propane grill and multi-decks. Very roomy and everything you need is provided. Living area was great for watching football with a bar with ice maker in the living room. Incredible master bedroom and bathroom and the other rooms are very nice. The photos are very accurate. Close to many golf courses and restaurants. We will definitely plan to stay here in the future. Thanks

We needed a place close to the venue of our daughter's wedding, and this location was ideal. We had everything we needed. When the bridesmaids came over to get dressed, we set up both hair and makeup in the master bath. It was perfect! We had room for both activities even with the occasional visitor coming in to check out the progress. The next day we hosted a farewell luncheon for the bride and groom and all of their out of town friends. I knew they all were eager to get into Austin to shop and hang out, but the multiple decks were so conducive to relaxing conversation that everyone stayed later than we expected. We could not have found a better location. The pictures are very accurate in showing the property, and it has everything you need, including my favorite - nightlights! To top off the wonderful experience, Sue and Royce were incredible in their hospitality. They were very familiar with mother of the bride nerves and were most helpful and accommodating. I lucked out in finding not only a great location, but great owners as well. I highly recommend this property.

The Perfect Weekend Getaway
The home and surroundings are so beautiful! My husband and I fully planned on hitting the Austin scene, but once we got to the property, we just wanted to sit on one of the peaceful decks and enjoy the view. The home is beautifully decorated and luxurious. Do not miss out on staying at Chateau Lakeview! We waited way too long to experience this beautiful home. Sue and Royce: Thank you so much for opening up your home for people to relax and getaway to! Oh, and Chris, my husband, would like to thank you for the UT decorations!

We rented Chateau Lakeview for the week of my daughters wedding at the Lakeway Resort. We had lots of family in town for the event and it was the perfect location for us. The house had plenty of room for us to entertain family as well as complete all of our wedding projects. It was right in the neighborhood and easy to go back and forth to the resort for wedding events. The house was so clean and well kept and had everything you could possibly need for cooking. We loved sunsets on the deck and morning walks in the neighborhood and watching the deer. I highly recommend this rental. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

Great girlfriend getaway spot!
Great girlfriend getaway spot!
I stayed here last night for a girls getaway in celebration of my birthday and upcoming marriage. The home was spotless and extremely spacious, especially the enormous master suite! Everything is in fantastic condition. The large kitchen was wonderful to cook in, with every possible piece of cooking equipment you could need. We loved sitting on the upper deck that overlooks the lake--it's a little ways away, but still gorgeous and peaceful! With so many bedrooms, we all had plenty of space to spread out and have a little privacy. The dining room and living room are large, making it really easy to have together time with a group. It's also really nice that there is a second living room downstairs. I highly recommend it for a girls getaway or large family vacation! We had a great time there and felt right at home.

Sue, I just wanted to tell how wonderful your home was this weekend for my Mothers family reunion. My Mother is 86 years old and wanted her entire family together one more time. The family came from California, Chicago, Washington and London to be with her. She stayed at our home in Lakeway but we would take her over each morning so it was a constant visit for three days. The Château was perfect. Everyone couldn’t believe what a wonderful house was available. Your hospitality was tremendous and is greatly appreciated. I will continue to suggest to friends that this is a perfect place to have a weekend in Lakeway. Thank you again. Best regards, Ron

Wonderful and spacious home, more decks and patios than you could shake a stick at. Great kitchen for cooking, Randall's is right up the road. Easy transaction.

Charming House - Dream Kitchen!
Charming House - Dream Kitchen!
My family and I stayed at Chateau Lakeview to celebrate my husband's graduation from MBA school. The house definitely lived up to the pictures and extremely clean (even for a germaphobe!) We were greeted by UT paraphernalia which was a very good sign on our arrival! We planned many meals to cook and grill at the house and it was a dream to cook in the kitchen! It had every single gadget, spice, pot, kitchen utensil you could ever ask for. And there is so much room on the countertops when so many people are in the kitchen at once. Last but not least was the amazing herb garden!! We picked fresh mint for mojitos and also parsley and thyme for our turkey burgers. If you are staying here, you don't have to worry about bringing many basic staples because they have thought of everything! We loved the decks - and had dinner while watching the sunset one night. The deer seemed to come out in the mid afternoon and also in the evening. That was a sight to see (being from Houston)! The grill was fabulous and we all had a great time in the house. Lakeway Marina was very close by, as well as shopping and grocery stores if we needed. We were pleased with everything and had a wonderful stay. Thanks so much Sue!

Relaxing Lakeview Stay!
Relaxing Lakeview Stay!
We only had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful home for a few nights, but when the time came, I didn't want to go home!! The owners enforce over-the-top vacation stay service by providing cooking utensils and pantry staples, and even soap! I've stayed at homes before that didn't have soap, and you don't realize until you're there that you'll want it! My favorite part was just sitting on the deck and listening to all the birds and the wind in the trees. This house has a great view of the lake, and is close enough to "everything" that you can still go out to breakfast or go into downtown Austin for the music scene. The owner was fast and pleasurable to work with as well! I wished we were able to stay longer, and anyone needing a place to visit in Austin will love this home!

Seven sorority sisters from the SIXTIES stayed at the Chateau last weekend and it was just perfect for our group. The house was beautiful and clean. Sue was super nice and very helpful. We appreciated having access to spices, zip lock bags, and other things that are usually not available in other houses where we've stayed. Though we didn't need them, she offered herbs from her herb garden also. We loved the warming oven and having two ovens since we had 21 ladies for dinner. Sue has every utensil or pan you would ever need! We had a great time and would definitely reccommend this house to others!!

Sue, thank you for a wonderful weekend! The place fit our needs from every standpoint. The views from the patios were breathtaking especially at sunset. That you for hosting all my fellow Texas Tech alums. Thanks again and will definitely be contacting you again for future trips down in Hill Country.

We stayed at Chateau Lakeview to celebrate our anniversary with friends and family. What a wonderful, relaxing time and perfect place to share with those close to us! It's large enough that everyone had their personal space and yet we had wonderful space to dine, laugh and just watch gorgeous sunsets. I strongly urge anyone needing respite to book this home! We also took our dog and he had a great time, truly dog friendly.

We stayed at the Chateau, and it was everything that we could have asked for. The house is beautiful and spacious. We loved all the decks and the views. The area was nice and quite. Sue was very easy to work with and she answered all questions. I would recommend this house to anyone with a big goup.

We stayed at Chateau Lakeview for a week while attending the festivities for my son's wedding at Lakeway Resort. Were we ever pleased! What a beautiful home, with every amenity you could dream of! It was so thoughtfully stocked--even down to bandaids and extra toothbrushes! The kitchen was a dream and offered everything we needed to whip up a dinner for 30! The house was beautifully decorated, but still felt like you could put your feet up and get cozy. The decks are a wonderful place to gather, and by the end of the week it felt like home. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home for our family to make longlasting memories!

Rented Chateau Lakeview in November 07 for weekend stay in early March for our son's wedding at Lake Travis. Could not have found a better location or nicer people to deal with. When we toured it the refurbishing was going on but even amid the construction clutter the great bones and quality care was obvious. The photos match the reality in every respect--except the reality is even nicer. Sue, the owner, was very easy to work with. She allowed us a late checkout Sunday so we could return after the wedding to change clothes and finish packing up...very professional with good instruction sheet for arrival info, very quick to answer emails and definitely flexible since we did not know initially how many days we would stay. The new photos on the site show the improvements and the overall quality of Chateau Lakeview. It offers anything you could ask for in a home away and is so much better than motel rooms. We loved the privacy and quiet, the well-maintained, up-scale decor, and the make-yourself-at-home atmosphere that welcomed us from the minute we arrived. I know my daughter who stayed at a different location on the Lake was envious. The Chateau's layout worked great for our party: husband/wife, adult friend, her daughter-husband-baby boy, and another couple. Split living/sleeping areas allowed privacy; plenty of parking; awesom and functional kitchen; wonderful decks; comfortable beds; clean baths with plenty of towels--all added up to a great stay. Everyone was thoroughly enchanted and have no doubt we would return if given the opportunity. Would definitely recommend Chateau Lakeview to any one needing something this size. And can't think of anyone better to work with than Sue and Jaci--thanks very much ladies...

We were extremely impressed with how conscientious you guys are about making sure your guests have everything they need. It is pretty amazing! We have truly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful and very relaxing. The remodeling sounds great, although I have to admit that I don't think any of us have any complaints with the house as it is. That means you guys will just be making something that's already wonderful even better!
