Lovely quaint home on Lake Austin

  • 5 of 5

This home is a lovely and well kept lake-side cottage on Lake Austin. The home was very clean, comfortable and cozy. It was decorated with family heirlooms and historic pictures. The surroundings were very peaceful and relaxing. The owner greeted me upon arrival and made sure that we had everything we needed and that we were satisfied with the accommodations. My only regret was that I didn't have more time to sit on the dock and drink my morning coffee. I will definitely return.

Great location on Lake Austin. Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our best vacations. The house is close to the city and very convenient to grocery shopping and dining near by. Great views and lot's of boat activity to watch. Having a sandy beach and kayak was a fun way to enjoy the water. Preparing meals in the spacious kitchen and of course dining outside was a must. The owner was just a phone call away for any questions and was so accommodating. This was very convenient for our children to visit, with them living in the city of Austin. They could come and go or stay the night.I would recommend this home for families or a get away with friends.
