              Location

              We are located in the Steiner Ranch area of the Austin hill country very close to Lake Austin Spa and the UT Golf Course. Water sport rentals, restaurants, spas and the Hill Country Galleria shopping mall are all very close. And the Oasis Restaurant (Sunset Capital of Texas) is only 10 minutes away for you and your group to experience.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1977

              About: I grew up in the Houston, Texas area and fell in love with Austin after spending my honeymoon here in 1961. We spent many weekends and vacations with our children on beautiful Lake Austin. We purchased our property in 1977 when Steiner Ranch was actually a working ranch. We have seen many changes through the years, but one thing has never changed...the beauty and peacefulness of our 'little piece of heaven'. Gardening is my hobby and our property is extra beautiful because I spend lots of time tending my gardens. I am truly blessed.

              Why Lake Austin:
              Although our property is now surrounded by the Steiner Ranch Community, we have remained very remote all these years. Our Cottage sits on 1.5 acres beside a beautiful 5 acre 'day use only' park. There is a nature preserve across from us and beside the park which makes our property a nature lovers dream. The beauty and wildlife must be experienced because it's difficult to describe with words. Our location offers the smoothest water on Lake Austin for watersports, fishing, or just sit and enjoy it's breathtaking view. Because the south breeze blows the cool temperature of the lake toward our property, it truly is the 'coolest' place in Texas in the hot summertime.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              I love to help others create special memories with friends and family which is exactly what happens everytime anyone visits. No one ever wants to leave...children and adults. There is something here for everyone to enjoy and remember.
