This Lake Austin Cabin is located on the prettiest part of Lake Austin (behind an electronic gate) with panoramic views of the lake and natural wildlife preserve across the way. Come relax, enjoy the beautiful scenery, lounge on the screened porch, lay on the deck, or walk over to the Lake Austin Spa for a day treatment or massage. Bring your boat; launch it at the ramp next door, park it overnight on our lift. Fish off of our docks and bulkhead; play on the inner tubes, read that book you have been wanting to read and sit by the fireplace, or bring your art supplies. Boat slip can be rented per night; check with owner if you wish to bring boat. Check out our kayaks and canoe for your use at no charge, take a beautiful trip up the lake and come back and picnic on the private grounds. There is a charcoal barbecue pit right outside your cabin. Located close to some of the best restaurants, Steiner Ranch Steak House (live music on most evenings) Chou for Asian and sushi, Lakeside Pizza Grill for pizza, burgers and comfort food (these three restaurants are all within 5 miles). Santa Catarina (great interior Mexican food and fabulous Margaritas), Saigon (Vietnamese/Thai), Los Pinos (authentic Mexican food), the famous Oasis Restaurant, with outstanding views, sunsets and cocktails; only seven miles away on Lake Travis. Some of the closer restaurants will actually deliver to our property. We also have two other cabins on the property if you want to bring more family and friends. Contact owner and she can send you photos of the other cabins. There are golf courses in the area and shopping is extremely convenient; two large grocery stores nearby. It's so quiet on the property you wouldn't know all of these conveniences are mostly within five to eight miles away and property is just 25 minutes from downtown.

Beautiful quiet getaway right on the water.
Quaint and Quiet!
My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay in this fabulous cabin! We spent most of our time on the wonderful dock (a gorgeous view and a great place for coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings), on the screened in porch and in the Kayaks on the lake (such a pretty part of Lake Austin). In a previous review, one guest mentioned that there is a public boat ramp next door. While that is true, it is not even visible from the property. The property is very private and very quiet. The owners live there, but we hardly even saw them. And, when we did, they were warm and friendly. All my exchanges with Linda were wonderful. We loved the lush landscaping, the Adirondack chairs around the fire pit and Mango, the cockatoo. If you want a shiny new condo or a hotel experience, this may not be the place for you. However, if you want a unique and peaceful cabin on the lake (a good for your soul cabin), you will love it!
Great, but shared space
I would more accurately describe this rental as “remote” rather than secluded and “shared” rather than private. There are windows everywhere, comfy furnishings, a large screened-in porch and a fully equipped kitchen which are all terrific features inside the cabin. To describe the bathroom as “rustic” would be a stretch. The only viable shower to use is a hand-held unit which you access by climbing inside the large Jacuzzi tub (if you have mobility issues, this cabin is not for you). The views and easy access to the deck & dock are also fabulous—you will have to remind yourself you are in Texas when you look at all the lush greenery and water that surrounds you. However, the description does not disclose that the cabin is sandwiched between the owner’s home and the owner’s office. So, the fabulous views you have include frequent sightings of one of the owners tinkering with the yard or working in his office. And, there is the realization that all those windows that allow you to see out, also allow the owners to see you inside. Now, the owners are totally entitled to enjoy their property, and Phillip is a very pleasant fellow. But, if you have fantasies of privacy, please know that this is very much a shared space and prepare accordingly [the property description should also be adjusted for full disclosure]. As mentioned in other posts, the property is next door to a public boat dock, and is next to a residence on the other side, so there is considerable noise from people unloading and loitering at the dock & from their activities in the water that may begin very early in the morning and extend late into the evening. While I would not stay here again, those of you that are more social and desire access to the water and views you won’t find anywhere else in Austin, this cabin would be right for you.
We have been sharing our beautiful oasis property with guests for over 15 years and remain a five star property with most guests returning often after they have been here. We
Have no way of moving our home and architect’s office from their locations but take great pride in sharing this beautiful setting with many guests. We are sorry these guests did not have the remoteness they were looking for but glad many guests have enjoyed the loveliness of the property, the water, and the wildlife preserve across the way. Thank you to our many happy guests it makes the property a pleasure for us. Thank you.
