Lake Austin chateau / country house description
Our Lake Austin Guesthouse sits on a unique, 4 1/2 acre, estate with 300 feet of lakefront and offers privacy, beautiful scenery, and comfort. We can accommodate up to eight people, with two king beds, a queen size futon, and a full bed/sofa. The guesthouse is attached to our main house, separated by a large breezeway and courtyard for privacy. We live on-site and want our guests to enjoy the lake and feel at home. This space provides a great opportunity for small family reunions, a get-away from the bustle of the city, and a retreat for those seeking a quiet place to relax while still offering a variety of activities for all ages. Bring your boat. We have an extra boat slip for you and enjoy the best stretch of skiing/wakeboarding water on Lake Austin. And yes, you can catch a bass right off the dock!

Year Purchased: 1991
About the owner: We have owned our lakefront estate since 1991 and have raised our children and pets here. We are recently retired and continue to live here full-time, so are on-site if our guests need any assistance.
Why the Owner Chose Lake Austin:
Lake Austin Guesthouse sits in Happy Hollow, a private estate on the upper end of Lake Austin, near Lakeway. The access road to our property passes through two scenic miles of the Balcones Canyonland Preserve. With great consideration we keep the grounds as organic and native as possible and maintain the house with green building materials and green cleaning products.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Our gated property is unique and upon entry feels like you are stepping back into time, into an enchanted place. The entire estate is mostly shaded with large, hundred year-old Live Oak and pecan trees, native to Texas. The setting is semi-rural, private, yet minutes away from all the amenities a guest could need. Our boat dock with two boat slips has a large deck above and we have one open slip for your boat, so bring your boat and enjoy the best skiing/ wakeboarding stretch of water on the whole of Lake Austin.
