You will begin to unwind and relax on the undulating drive upward towards 334 Explorer, the luxurious Chateau Lakeview, located in the heart of the beautiful Texas Hill Country. At first glimpse, it is nestled, tall and proud, among shady trees that overhang its many covered decks. Large, at over 3000 square feet, with sleeping accommodations for 16, it offers comfort at every level. No amenity has been overlooked.

We welcome wedding groups. We are geared up for families of the bride and groom as well as the bridal party.

As you enter the Chateau and step onto one of the four spacious decks, you will be thrilled by the breathtaking views of Lake Travis and the surrounding Texas Hill Country. Proceed up the stairs to the recently added Super Deck. Don’t forget your camera! The stunning views of the lake framed by stately oak trees in daylight, and the shimmer of a glorious Hill Country sunset reflecting off the lake at dusk, as well as the spectacular star gazing in the evening will provide cherished memories of your Hill Country weekend or vacation.

The luxurious master suite will lure you with its cozy fireplace, shower for two, and roomy soaker tub perfect for two. Recently remodeled in 2013 we are set up with great mirrors and lighting, loads of electrical outlets and a place to steam special clothing.

A separate sitting area in the master suite affords desirable privacy. On the same floor as the master, is the main living area with a large television, a sofa sleeper for two, separate wet bar/fridge, half-bath, dining room with vaulted ceiling, a breakfast room and spacious kitchen; the envy of any gourmand. The kitchen is designed for large groups and contains a double oven, cook top, two warming drawers and warming trays to keep dinner warm for the whole crowd. With four separate dining areas, there is lots of flexibility for serving and feeding your crowd. Don’t go buy the paper plates until you see the number of dishes and flatware the kitchen contains.

The upstairs decks will entice you with ceiling fan, speakers, and chic furniture for dining and lounging while you lazily watch violet and gold sunsets over the lake in the distance.

With three ice-makers in the house, you will never want for ice. Downstairs are three bedrooms. One, a mini-suite, serves as a second master with its own private bath. A Jack-and-Jill bath accommodates the other two bedrooms. Open to the spacious, shady backyard, lounge on the patio and watch your kids or pets play. A second large downstairs living area, with a sleeper sofa for two, boasts its own wet bar/fridge and second television. If staying connected is necessary, a desk here provides high-speed internet. A propane gas grill is located on the deck off of the formal dining room. Makes for easy access from the kitchen. There is a table and chairs there as well so folks can visit while the chef cooks. Don't forget to pick fresh herbs from the kitchen garden below in the back yard to make your meals extra yummy and pleasing to the eye.

Stored are two additional roll-away beds, and two 12 inch thick blow-up beds, just in case you need to sleep 16 guests total! A washer and dryer are conveniently placed in the upstairs master closet, and also at the back entry, where there is a spacious garage and large driveway for multiple cars. Pet lovers? Not to worry; the fieldstone floors are pet-friendly.

The fenced backyard, framed with a variety of fruit and shade trees, provides a wonderful home-away-from-home for the family dog. The covered patio in the back yard has luxury furniture for relaxing and a ceiling fan to keep you cool.

Our golden retriever Geraldine strongly recommends Chateau Lakeview for your pet. There are three separate areas for water and food for your favorite pet...no horses, please!

Information for boaters. The Lakeway Marina is about a mile from the house. Phone number is 512/261-7511. You can rent boats or a slip for your boat. Call the Marina about where to put your boat in. Slip rentals are $30/night or $150/week.

About Sue Holland

We are Royce and Sue Holland. Our principal residence is in Dallas, but we love Austin and the hill country and so we are here often. Royce is the Executive Chairman of Masergy Communications.

Sue Holland purchased this House in 2006

Why Sue Holland chose Lakeway

We are in Austin quite frequently. We have rented many homes from vrbo and decided to purchase a home for ourselves and rent it when we are not using it.

What makes this House unique

We are quite popular with the wedding crowd. With so many great wedding venues in the Lake Travis area we host many a bridal party, and families of the bride and groom. We are outfitted with a large master bathroom for the bridal party to do hair and makeup. There is a steamer and two places to hang and steam your long wedding dress. Many families host a luncheon or brunch on the Sunday after the wedding and we certainly have the facilities for that. So if you are thinking of getting married and need a place to stay, Chateau Lakeview is the perfect place. If you want to preview the place before you decide to rent, we can do that too.

                                                                Kathy and I wanted to have a home like experience for our daughters wedding with plenty of room! Simply put.....wonderful! Everyone was comfortable, and absolutely enjoyed the multiple balconies! Thanks Sue for allowing us to stay in your home!

                                                                Lovely Home with a Relaxing Atmosphere

                                                                Candy W.

                                                                We rented Chateau Lakeview for my bachelorette weekend in April. The home was even more lovely in person than in the pictures. The home finishings were high quality and the views were stunning, especially for the price. The only negative aspect was all of the burnt orange and longhorn decor!

                                                                The layout flowed nicely and there was plenty of room (and restrooms!) to accommodate all ten ladies. Pots, pans, and dishes galore; the kitchen and was extremely well stocked. We enjoyed most of our meals at the house. The linens, towels, etc. were nice quality and the beds were comfortable.

                                                                Many of the ladies would like to potentially rent the house again for future events and activities. We were extremely happy that we chose Chateau Lakeview!

                                                                Loved the Longhorn jab. All I can say is


                                                                Glad you had a great time. Come again ya'll.

                                                                Property was more than our group can imagine, the numerous patios were amazing

                                                                We had a great experience renting this property and bbq'ed. The top level patio has an amazing sunset view and the house has everything you need for your stay. Will definitely rent again if in the area.

                                                                Beautiful home and neighborhood. I'd love to stay here again!

                                                                The home was absolutely beautiful! It is so well-kept and offers a comforting and relaxing environment to stay in. I would definitely book this home again, without a doubt!!
