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. Lots of fun! I was also the builder and co-designer of the dwellings on this property, and my creative energy is recognized 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. I truly enjoy making The Guest house Cabin Retreat a Special and memorable vacation for my many and varied guests. Putting together the Welcome Baskets; catering to Special Occasions; making Special picnic baskets or stocking the fridge to the specifications and ultimate desires of my guests are just a few of the ways that I enjoy making my guests feel welcome and pampered! Always feel free to inquire on any SPECIAL REQUESTS!~ I'm here to make your stay special!

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. A single or series of 'Art Retreat' Workshop/s with the Artist in Residence is also available to guests. -As the landlord on the premises in the main house, I am almost always available to give you feedback or answer questions to make your stay more enjoyable! There is a 'Concierge Book' for more details on things to do in the Austin Area, directions, brochures, favorite restaurants nearby, etc..
