Lake Austin house description

This charming lake house, nestled in a bend of Lake Austin, sits across from a breathtaking hillside nature preserve. Featuring two guest rooms. (one room sleeps up to four and the other five) There is a fold-out couch in the den and a bed on the upstairs screened porch. With a full kitchen and two full bathrooms (one upstairs, one down) there is room for all.

The waterfront is loaded with a private dock, deck, boat slip and plenty of lounging areas just right for tanning, relaxing and watching magnificent sunsets. There are 3 kayaks, perfect for getting out with your friends and family or just taking on nature by yourself. Seitz Camp is an excellent way to unwind and regroup. And when you’ve floated, grilled and played until your hearts content, there is an outdoor shower for cleaning up or just cooling off. The patio has a fireplace with plenty of firewood and comfy seating, perfect for the starry Texan moonlit nights.
The downstairs indoor area is dedicated to having fun! With an indoor fireplace, a wet bar, ping-pong table and a separate play room for the kids, everyone is sure to be entertained.

For Nature Lovers needing a dose of the great outdoors, the Seitz Camp offers plenty both on and off the water.
Landlubbers: Steiner Ranch, our neighborhood, offers eighteen miles of trails that roll through the hillside offering a new view of the winding river at every turn. Mature oaks and other native trees and plants color the rolling hills while songbirds serenade you.
Birdwatchers: If you don't feel like leaving the nest, train your binoculars or our telescope on the banks of the Golden-Cheeked Warbler Preserve that sits just across the Colorado river. Herons, egrets, hawks and turkey vultures abound.
Paddlers: Grab a boat and head out in search of the old hunting camp on the preserve or the creeks across the river. Take your camera and binoculars and soak in Mother Nature's intoxicating beauty.
Fishermen: Catfish, largemouth bass and sunfish are the predomiant species you will find on the end of your hook.

Boaters: Launch your boat 20 feet away at the neighborhood park's private T-Dock and head down river for burgers, beer and a band at Ski Shores or further down to the dam for Tex Mex at the Hula Hut. We have a covered lift to keep your boat safe during your stay. Lake Austin runs 19 miles dam to dam with plenty to explore in between.
Golfers: Drive. Slice. Hook 'Em. That's the motto of the University of Texas Golf Club 5 miles down the road, a 7,412 yard Bechtol Russell-designed championship course nestled between Lake Austin and Lake Travis.

Couch Potatoes: Hit the hammock. That's all you have to do.
Prefer bing pampered? Have no fear, for Lake Austin Spa is very near. One of the finest luxury destination spas in the country is within walking distance. It's easy to enjoy days of pampering when you're not breaking the bank with the overnight price tag of a luxury spa.
