About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms with 2 queen sized beds + 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-5)

Circle J Cabin was originally built in 1940 and was renovated in 2004 with the charm and warmth of a rustic lakefront property set on the beautiful banks of Lake Travis. It was redesigned to offer all the comforts of home such as stainless steel appliances, ceiling fans throughout, custom tiled countertops, uniquely designed bathrooms (one walk in shower and one claw foot bathtub) and comfortably appointed bedrooms. The interior of Circle-J is accented with uniquely finished concrete flooring, a vaulted ceiling living room with custom furnishings that help make this a true lakeside retreat.

The large windows and expanded screened-in porch allows visitors to enjoy the natural Central Texas landscape. Step outside to walk down the gently sloping yard to the waters edge to take in fantastic views all around you. (Balcones National Wildlife Refuge to your left and Pace Bend State Park directly across the lake).

This is the nicest property we're ever stayed at!

Beautiful, secluded, comfortable. Loved the lake, firepit and screened in porch. My favorite part of the house was the huge clawfoot tub. A little slice of Heaven!

I would say to all it made us INJOY!!!

I couldn’t have asked for more. The cabin was secluded and surrounded by nature. The lake was a short walk away from the front door. Exactly what we needed to escape the hustle and bustle of Houston. Will definitely stay there again.

Katy, Texas

We LOVED the place.

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect fit for our weekend. Close to family and friends and then come back to the cabin to nap in the heat of the day. My husband is still talking about what a great weekend we had, a week later! As for myself, I am a huge Texas history buff and the story of your great-grandparents was wonderful. Thank you for sharing. We have a hunting cabin similar to yours, so I understand the time and expense put into making the cabin a delight. In the evening, I just wanted to look at the grand old oaks, think of the stories they could tell and listen to the boats go by. Thanks for sharing this special place. We will be in touch again.

Wonderful birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just recently returned home from a wonderful birthday getaway at Circle J cabin. We had the best time. It's absolutely beautiful there, so peaceful and quiet, a great place to unwind and unplug. The cabin itself is super nice. It's very cozy, yet plenty roomy with several modern touches, and impeccably clean. The large screened in porch with ceiling fans and 4 adirondack chairs was so relaxing. We would sit out there and drink our coffee in the morning and watch for deer. Our dog Sweet Boy loved it too. We also enjoyed the comfy hammock outside and the grill. We didn't use the fire pit but can just imagine how great that would be on a chilly fall night. One of the best things about the cabin is its proximity to the lake. Just a short walk and you are there. It's a very scenic, clean, calm spot to fish, swim, or just lounge on a raft.

We had the pleasure of meeting Joy, one of the owners, the day we were leaving. She is the nicest, sweetest lady. Thank you Joy and Tracy for a wonderful stay at your amazing cabin. It was one of my best birthdays ever. We will definitely be back!
