Located on 'old farmland property' so it feels like you are really out in the country, The Guesthouse Cabin Retreat is surrounded by woods! The Cabin overlooks canyons of the Colorado River, w/ incredible views, large private deck, fenced in backyard, shade trees. Stroll down to the spring fed creek and have a picnic at the picnic table there, or relax and sip your coffee or wine on your own private deck (approx. 14x20 ft)- The Colorado River is just down the road, and this property has an easement to it, with a pier for fishing, picnicking, swimming, or just enjoying the day!

Large flat screen TV HD, cable, free wifi, Netflix, dvd's, fliers for local restaurants and fun things to do, access to the river with beach, and great hiking trails in neighborhood parks!

Just a short drive to so many wonderful places to see: Downtown Austin, Blanton Museum, Harry Ransom Center, Austin Zoo, Water parks, Botanical Gardens, excellent golf courses and resorts/spas/Fitness Centers just minutes away, cycling abounds in the area with nearby bike rentals, paddle board, canoeing, boating, jet skis, kayaking, picnicking, fine upscale or hole in the wall ethnic restaurants abound. The ever growing and now internationally recognized Hill Country Wineries tours are all over the area, and this location is an excellent place to stay to do the tours! The landlord who lives in the main house on the property can guide you to whatever you are interested in.

The 'Guesthouse Cabin' is completely separate from the main property on the estate. The wonderful pool and spa area with large pave decking and river rock fireplace adjacent to the spa is private and surrounded by trees as it perches up over the spring fed creek with bald cypress and Spanish oaks galore. Granite counters, elm hardwood and slate flooring, aromatic cedar porches, access to Colorado River with pier and private beach area. This very private and secluded guesthouse sits on 1.27 acre private estate and is efficiently designed with lots of storage, cabinetry, architecturally unique and functional. One bedroom, one bath, both are exceptionally large.

It's like living in your private cabin in the woods, w/ all the amenities! Maid service, grocery shopping, picnic baskets, etc., can be arranged for reasonable extra cost!

Sip your coffee by the pool or on your large private deck and just enjoy the tranquility of the nature that surrounds you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Hi! I am the owner of the property, Nina Beall, and I reside in the main house that is adjacent but completely private and separate from the Guesthouse Cabin. 'The Studio' which is my Art Studio and gallery, fills the main floor of the main house,and I'll be happy to show you the studio where I create large colorful works, collected by many private and museum collections around the world, upon request! For more information on my work, feel free to visit my website: www.ninabeall.com Another website that you might be interested in, and I am happy to coordinate workshops for my guests with notice, is: http://nbeall.com/classes/ If you are interested in Art Retreat Workshops with your stay, please reserve ahead! It's a great way to learn to paint or draw from a professional. NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Grant Recipient. The Studio is just a short walk over from the Guesthouse Cabin! Please feel free to inquire Pricing range is in accordance with the website info. Lots of fun! Just FYI- I was also the builder and co-designer of the dwellings on this property, and my creative energy is recognizable in its details. I purchased this old 'farmland' property in 1996, when I was drawn to the area and its quiet, peaceful environment, where I just knew nature would abound, flowers and landscape would blossom, and my creative energies would flow! The entire project took a couple of years, with my doing much of the work in a 'hands on' fashion, from clearing the briars and brambles, to overseeing the sub contractors with each component of construction.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Austin:
This property is unique, in one of the most prestigious and upscale, yet interesting areas of the city. It was old farmland property, and is not in any subdivision, but sits with pride as part of an older, more peaceful way of life. It is because of this, that the Guesthouse is so special, secluded and away from the hustle bustle, yet near so many wonderful places to visit during your stay. There are many types of birds and other wildlife that frequent the property, and one has only to sit and listen to be reminded that one is truly in the country here....

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The unique location of the property lends itself well to a relaxed and peaceful stay in this tranquil environment, but is located really within just a short drive of so many amenities and points of interest. Multiple upscale, ethnic, or on the go types of restaurants, grocery stores, movie theatres, performance halls. Recreation facilities are also within just a short drive. You may request a guest pass for a days enjoyment of 'The Hills' spa and resort/fitness center.
