Overlooking Lake Travis in the Hill Country, this one-of-a-kind architectural gem is off the beaten-path and at the center of things. As you approach over tree-covered hillsides which drop to the midnight-blue water below, you’ll get more the impression that you are in the Greek Islands or southern Italy than in Texas.
Since the Tram House can only be reached by tram, you’ll park at the base of the hill, climb into the tramcar, and let your horizon expand as you are carried 210 feet up the 55-degree hillside to the panoramic views of Lake Travis. Built in perfect alignment with the slope of the hill and standing at ‘treetop’ height, it is the only house east of the Rocky Mountains that requires a tram to access.
The Tram House boasts three private balconies, custom-designed skylights, and corner windows in the living room and bedrooms that allow unobstructed views. The three-level, contemporary-style home is comfortably furnished with all new décor. It has been featured in Austin Monthly and Parade magazines.
With its unparalleled views, exclusive location, modern comfort and competitive rates, neighbors and visitors alike rave about the unique Tram House. Come and see for yourself! Contact us for more information about this exceptional lake destination.
Nestled in Hill Country overlooking Lake Travis; stunning views of the sparkling blue water, marina facilities, and summer weather; walking distance to Hippie Hollow, Texas’ only “clothing-optional” park, and to Bob Wentz Windy Point Park, a waterfront “family-friendly” area. Proximity to restaurants and entertainment! Watch the sunset from the patio of the famous Oasis on Lake Travis, just two miles from the Tram House, or head only 25 minutes into downtown Austin, the Live Music Capital of the World, to the celebrated 6th Street. Famous area events include South by Southwest and Austin City Limits.
The House is a 2 bedroom, both Master bedrooms with King Size Beds. It sleeps 4-6. We allow 4 people to stay in the house at that rate. After 4 people, extra people are $25/day.
