About Nina

Hi! I am the owner of the property, Nina Beall, and I reside in the main house that is adjacent but completely private and separate from the Guesthouse Cabin. Please feel free to call me anytime at 512-263-0219 w/ any questions or to discuss any upgrades, "Add Ons," or Special Events!

I am a professional NEA GRANT Recipient artist/painter, and 'The Studio' which is my Art Studio and gallery fills the main floor of the main house and I'll be happy to show you the studio where I create large colorful works collected by many private and museum collections around the world, upon request! For more information on my work there's a website or 2, and I'm happy to coordinate PAINTING/DRAWING Workshops for my guests with notice.

If you are interested in Art Retreat Workshops with your stay, please reserve ahead! Learn to paint or draw from a professional, NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Grant Recipient. The Studio is just a short walk over to the Main House from the Guesthouse Cabin, and The Studio is the first floor of the Main House! Please feel free to inquire. Lots of fun!

I purchased this old 'farmland' property in 1996, when I was drawn to the area and its quiet, peaceful environment, where I just knew nature would abound, flowers and landscape would blossom, and my creative energies would flow! And 'was also the builder/ co-designer of the dwellings on the property. My creative energy is recognized in its details.

I truly enjoy making The Guest house Cabin Retreat a Special and memorable vacation for my many and varied guests. Putting together the Welcome Baskets; catering to Special Occasions; making Special picnic baskets or stocking the fridge to the specifications and ultimate desires of my guests are just a few of the ways that I enjoy making my guests feel welcome and pampered! Always feel free to inquire on any SPECIAL REQUESTS!~ I'm here to make your stay special!

Nina purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Nina chose Austin

This property is unique, in one of the most prestigious and upscale, yet interesting areas of the city! NOT a SUBDIVISION!~ONLY 7 MILES from Downtown Austin!~Tucked away on a private road that and with the expanse of "un lit" Emma Long City Park across the river, it makes for star gazing in clear skies!~ It was old farmland property, and sits with pride as part of an older, more peaceful way of life. It is because of this, that the Guesthouse is so special, secluded and away from the hustle bustle, yet near so many wonderful places to visit during your stay. There are many types of birds and other wildlife that frequent the property, and one has only to sit and listen to be reminded that one is truly in the country here.... But short drives to everything Austin and the Hill Country has to offer make it the "#IDEAL LOCATION!"

What makes this cabin unique

GUESTS may "CUSTOMIZE" their stays w/ multiple choices of "Add Ons" to make it EXTRA Special! Upgrades include choice/s of: Specialty Baskets for: Arrival, Breakfast, Picnics, appetizers, or Spa Packages. Lists of items and details available upon booking.

As the landlord on the premises in the main house, I am almost always available to give you feedback or answer questions to make your stay more enjoyable! There is a 'Concierge Book' for more details on things to do in the Austin Area, directions, brochures, favorite restaurants, and too many to name fun things to do in Austin, nearby.

We look forward to your visit. Nina Beall, Hostess. Please feel free to call w/ any questions or special requests: 512-263-0219

Guestbook comments from the owner

We booked this property for a small pool party w/ the family staying overnight and had an EXCELLENT time!~In the evening the outdoor FP was a hit w/ the kids to roast marshmallows while the adults relaxes in the Spa. Everything was taken care of for us, from setting up for the pool party, to the most gorgeous flowers in the Cabin! Extra bedding in the Cabin was easy to set up and very comfy! The expansive porches of the main house were great for those of our group who weren't interested in swimming or the Hot Tub, because they could be near us w/o getting splashed and just sit and relax in the multiple porch swings, chairs, etc..

The next day, we enjoyed taking the kids down to the river and they LOVED playing in the sand on the beach and jumping off the pier into the cold water!

There are even outdoor showers for rinsing off sand and feet! :)

The only thing that could have been better was if we could have stayed longer! So relaxing. GORGEOUS PROPERTY! GREAT HOST!

Lesson Learned

  • 3 of 5

This property is nice, clean and well maintained, but I wish that I'd thought twice about staying here. I will not make the mistake again. My only caution is that you need to read all of the rules carefully. I admit that reading through the documentation, when I came to the sections that explained about outside guests or overnight guests I skimmed them since I had talked to Nina and thought that I understood. Be warned that guests include anyone that you have stop by for a short visit. My son lives in Austin, so we thought it would be nice for him to drop by to eat supper and spend a couple of hours with us. We were surprised to learn that because our son had visited we were in violation of the agreement and to be nice the owner did not make us forfeit the whole deposit and ONLY charged us a very high "modified fee" for each of his visit of 2 and a half hours (along with a parking fee) If you combine business and pleasure this is probably not the place to bring a client for a cup of coffee. I have stayed in humble homes, hotels, motels, hostels and five star hotels and resorts in 16 countries over the last 30 years and I have never been charged for someone coming over to visit with me. Overnight guests I understand, but this borders on petty and is a little quirky for me, sorry. Once again the place was nice as well as the owner (although a bit condescending in tone in communication about this issue), but I feel like they do not understand that this type of business is a part of the service industry. Next time in town I will stay in one Austin's fine hotels at a lower price. At least there will be no surprises. We love Austin and we did our best to experience as much of the local culture as possible including the wonderful cuisine.

Owner's Response: It is always a pleasure to work with guests who have budgetary concerns. However, especially when it is a Special Offer Rate and additional discounts are given on top of this (which is more possible with Off Season periods), we simply must draw the line somewhere as it is NOT a CHAIN hotel where visitors that are NOT OVERNIGHT GUESTS may be partaking of on site restaurants or bars, creating an incentive for hotel owners to allow this. NO SURPRISES HERE! AND AS EXPLAINED TO GUEST BOTH WITHIN LISTING, OUTLINED IN BOOKING TERMS, AND AGAIN OVER PHONE: Vacation rentals generally do NOT allow influx of non staying guests, and are NOT able to accommodate guests having additional guests or cars to the property w/o incurring additional fees. Particularly when stays are several days and guests of guests are visiting MULTIPLE times FOR HOURS, property owners may understandably feel a bit "taken advantage of." Also especially when guests have received ROCK BOTTOM PRICING... .. This is stated CLEARLY multiple times in listing, as well as House Rules, Rental Terms and Agreements, and within the exchanges with booking. (as well as over phone ALWAYS). Guests must be responsible for reading listing, listening to my urging to pay ahead for non staying or additional guests visiting, and it is in RENTAL AGREEMENT agreed to by EACH/EVERY guest w/ booking. Terms are not lengthy to review and must be upheld. When a guest states to have read all rules, (box checked accordingly w/ booking) in writing, and is made aware over phone AGAIN, that: "additional guests incur additional fees whether visiting or staying." Short RENTAL AGREEMENT is GIVEN for REVIEW w/ BOX CHECKED THAT GUESTS AGREE TO ABIDE BY SIMPLE RENTAL TERMS: Letting property owner know when additional guests must be invoiced, fees are to be "paid at least a week ahead of arrival for stay for any additional guests." The Guesthouse Cabin Retreat is NOT a full service CHAIN hotel; it is BETTER in many ways because it affords privacy and is lovely, LUXURIOUS, PEACEFUL, ROMANTIC, AND FUN PROPERTY! IT IS JUST A GREAT GETAWAY PLACE! FOR THIS WE MUST CHARGE TO MAINTAIN AS SUCH. We strive to make all guests feel comfortable and appreciate it when guests take responsibility to do the same for us by reviewing the terms that they book with and agree to review, and abiding by those terms. I am always happy to accommodate budgets whenever possible and per our very reasonable Rental Terms and Agreements.

The guest house is lovely and cozy.

  • 4 of 5

The guest house is lovely and cozy. We enjoyed our stay over thanksgiving. I cooked meals in the fully equipped kitchen. It is best suited for 2 people. I had hoped to be able to view the river.

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your relaxing stay during the Thanksgiving holidays at The Guesthouse Cabin Retreat! And that you found the fully equipped kitchen worked so well for making meals for your larger family! It was a little chilly to be able to spend much time down at the river easement perhaps, but most folks enjoy making a fire in the large outdoor fireplace and adding a Spa Package to their stay in the colder months w/ the Special Offer rates! :) We hope that you'll come back in warmer months so that you can take full advantage of both the river /beach, and have time to enjoy the spa/pool and other wonderful amenities that the property offers!

Long weekend w/ Kids

  • 5 of 5

I booked The Guesthouse Cabin Retreat for a long weekend with my kids. The property was great, location was perfect. Was the perfect launchpad for us to explore the hill country during the day and wind down at night. Nina was great to work with, she was extremely hospitable, offered great advice on things to do in the area, she was awesome! The breakfast basket was a huge lifesaver for us on the first morning and I would recommend that anyone arriving late pick one up for sure.

Owner's Response: It was great to have you and your four wonderful children at The Cabin Retreat! I'm so glad that they enjoyed exploring the property and fishing down at the pier! The picture of your son w/ the big fish he caught there was priceless! :) I hope that you'll be able to come back and bring the wife for a romantic getaway (with or w/o the kiddos) real soon! Thanks for choosing "The Guesthouse Cabin Retreat Near the River!"

Such a beautiful cabin in such a gorgeous setting. Nina is a terrific host. That bottle of champagne was such a nice touch. All I can say is my wife and I are great fans of yours, Nina.

The BEST!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for a “Girl’s GetAway” with a few close friends and we had a blast! The property was PERFECT! Clean, and beautifully designed w/ comfy bedding and soft sheets, towels, and everything we needed in the kitchen as well! HIGHLY RECOMMEND NINA’S BREAKFAST BASKETS! We ordered the Specialty Breakfast Breads w/ a variety of choices and it was perfect for getting up and having something really yummy to munch on out on our private deck w/ the vast array of coffees and teas that Nina provides! We had delicious pizza delivered one night that was from a place Nina had recommended, and went to her suggestions for eating out also and were thrilled w/ the excellent food and variety of choices! We also found her winery touring maps and suggestions very helpful! Basically everything we needed and was made so easy to enjoy both the excellent location of the Guesthouse Cabin as well as the property itself! The grounds were interesting w/ lots of trees and very secluded and private. We felt like we’d stepped into the country but truly had all the luxury that made our stay special! Pool, Spa, outdoor FP with lots of seating and so peaceful and private! Kudos to hostess Nina and a big THANKS!
