About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Sunset Cabin on beautiful Lake Travis is a well-loved family owned rock cabin built in the 40s. This retreat is close to Austin and offers a relaxing setting and enjoyable atmosphere for family and friends. Just a stone’s throw from the water’s edge there is easy access for swimming, boating, and fishing.

Put your feet up and view the award winning sunset over the lake from the big covered porch or from under the shade of the mammoth oak tree on the veranda. Relax with a good book, barbecue on the grill and watch the Great Blue Herons soar.

The Main House has one bedroom, one bath, kitchen, living and dining room. The bedroom with a Queen Bed and the Living Room with 2 pull-out couches sleeps 6. Bed linens and towels are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave. The cabin has window units and a fireplace in winter. Ceiling fans in each room and lots of windows provide a nice cross breeze off of the Lake.
The Guest House is available now. (called Bluebonnet cottage) It is a large room with 1/2 bath and sleeps 4. For an additional charge, you can secure the additional space. - A good place to put the older kids!

Your relaxation retreat is minutes from good restaurants and is just 35 minutes from Austin where you can visit the State Capitol, The Bob Bullock Museum, the Blanton Art Museum on the University of Texas Campus and the LBJ Presidential Library. Austin has a full variety of fine restaurants and music venues. Visit the 6th Street Entertainment District and SoCo Art District.

Your vacation awaits you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1940

About the owner: Owners Feelings My parents bought this property on Lake Travis in the 1940’s. Cattle roamed the area and poked their heads into our camping tent. Soon after my Dad had a one room rock cabin built. It had a fireplace and surrounded with windows. Later he added a kitchen, bedroom and bath and a large covered front porch. An additional one room guest house was moved on to the property in the 50’s and we are in the process of remodeling it as the “Blue Bonnet Cottage” It will be a good overflow for the kids. It will sleep 4 and has a 1/2 bathroom. My brother and I inherited the Sunset Cabin in the 90’s and our families have enjoyed it all these years with kids and grandkids. We now rent it part of the time so others can have as much fun as we have had these many years.
