Overview

About the property

Six People Maximum Occupancy at All Times

This is just a little peaceful cabin on the Pedernales River arm of Lake Travis out in the country. The River is back and there are nice views and a peaceful vibe.

This property sits up on a bluff overlooking the river. There is a steep trail down the back of the property to the river below to our boat dock. You can also drive or walk down to the end of the street to the boat dock. Although there is NO beach area, you can swim and fish off the dock.

The wrap around deck looks out over panoramic views of the hills and water. There is complete privacy on one side of the home where the hot tub is located. There are three bedrooms, but only two on the main level where the bathrooms are. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has two doubles. There is one full bath and a second half bath. On the basement level there is a room with a double bed, however there is no bathroom on that level and this room is accessed only by going down the outside staircase. There is an outdoor heated shower and a hot tub. We have just recently remodeled the two bedrooms with new flooring and fresh paint and a new TV for the master bedroom.

If you start craving action, we are centrally located between Austin and Marble Falls and only 15 minutes to the Lakeway Hill Country Galleria's restaurants, shops and theaters. Or maybe just open a bottle of wine and hang out on the deck on the porch swing. Or take off down to Krause Spring's famous spring-fed swimming hole a couple minutes a way. Or try some new wines from Stone House Winery, also just a few minutes away. Don't forget to stop at the local roadside stand on the way there and get some home grown tomatoes and picnic goodies!

If you have friends or family or an event in this area, you can't go wrong making this your home base. Send me an email or book online to make a reservation and let me know the nature of your stay and I'll get back with you ASAP.

About Vicki or Gerald Lamar

We live in Austin and like to escape to the Hill Country for a quick getaway for some peace and relaxation.

Vicki or Gerald Lamar purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Vicki or Gerald Lamar chose Spicewood

We like the peaceful, country laid-back feel out here, the many moods of the weather sitting on the deck overlooking the River below and the decidedly Not City life out here. One of the best springfed swimming holes, Krause Springs is just minutes away or enjoy an afternoon picnic at The Stone House Winery just down the country road. Opie's BarBQ is an easy drive towards Spicewood.

What makes this cabin unique

This is a good home base between Lakeway and Marble Falls or a day trip to Fredericksburg or Johnson City or to Austin to visit 6th Street The Live Music Capital of the World or the University of Texas Campus or the LadyBird Wildflower Center.

Stunning view

  • 2 of 5

There is no doubt this home has incredible views but the home itself hugely lacks care of normal rental expectations. They tried to update this house but it was the cheapest update we've ever seen. Cockroaches on wall by fireplace and also in kitchen. Bug remnants in a bowl in cabinets. Liquid soap in bathroom watered down (you can buy soap for a buck at the dollar store). Also, no hand towels period. Bathroom sink stopped up. Furniture really old and nasty. Lots of personal stuff cluttered everywhere. The hot tub only blew jets in one corner. It was not a good experience really.

Sorry for the bad review but come on....add a little TLC. In our opinion this was not a good rental.

Owner's Response: Thanks for you review, we always appreciate feedback. The beauty of the property is definitely in the views and with below freezing temperatures that weekend I imagine you spent a lot of time indoors! Hope you took advantage of the fireplace and enjoyed that. Consider the soap dispenser issue and hand towel issues resolved. We do use organic pest control and from time to time pests happen, but we make every effort to stay on top of it weekly. If you do ever have any problems at our home Renters, call us immediately and we will do everything in our power to make it right. Good luck in getting your new home built and give us a second chance if you are in the area again!

Nice View!

  • 4 of 5

What a great weekend we had. The view from the deck was amazing! Waking up with a cup of coffee and many hummingbirds at the feeder was the cherry on top. For my 4 days from 40 girl trip this was a great location. We were near some fantastic vineyards.

It's worth noting that the downstairs bedroom would be a great spot for a man. There is not a bathroom located on this level and it would be a dangerous potty trip at night. But a man could make it work... :)
