About Beth Cunningham

We are an Austin family of six who always dreamed of having that space in the country to let the children run and play, free from worry and plenty of room for imaginations to roam.

Beth Cunningham purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2001

Why Beth Cunningham chose Round Mountain

We chose this idyllic location because it was private but easily accessible from our home in Austin. At night, the cool breezes, breathtaking Texas sunsets and the quiet, star-filled skies are irresistible. This is the place to re-charge!

What makes this Chateau / Country House unique

Less than a hour from the city, we discovered native Texas at its best: The only sounds at this secluded hill country location are the cicadas, whiporwills and bullfrogs at sunset. The only lights visible at night come from the moon and stars. A few days and nights here and it is hard to return to civilization! Twenty minutes from restaurants & shopping at the Hill Country Austin Galleria; 60 minutes from Austin Bergstrom & 90 minutes from San Antonio International airports.

                                                                      The house was updated , spotless and had every amenity needed for our perfect weekend stay. We will definitely return!

                                                                      I highly recommend an afternoon trip to Spicewood Vineyard.. it's a gorgeous back roads drive from the house and the wine is wonderful

                                                                      Beautiful Ranch Retreat

                                                                      Mary K.

                                                                      We recently celebrated a memorable 4 days at the ranch for a 60th birthday. Everything was perfect! The home was exceptionally comfortable, well outfitted, spacious, and beautifully decorated.

                                                                      Our adult children spent most of our days outdoors fishing, swimming, hiking, lounging, and reconnecting which was exactly what we had hoped.

                                                                      Our only wish was that we could have stayed longer. We commend the Cunningham family for providing 5 Star rental in our favorite part of Texas. We will be back

                                                                      Love love love!!

                                                                      Jennifer H.

The house is clean, comfortable, peaceful and has everything we need. We actually ventured out this year to Westcave Preserve, which was right down the road, and it was beautiful! We will return for many years to come as long as it's available.

                                                                      So peaceful and relaxing

                                                                      Stacy C.

                                                                      I went with a group of girlfriends to relax the weekend before my future sister-in-law's wedding. The house is STUNNING and we didn't even feel the need to leave the ranch despite our earlier plans to hop around hill country. I would definitely recommend this place and hope to visit again in the future.

We decided to come back because it is so peaceful and beautiful, and for 40-somethings with kids it is a GREAT escape! :) We plan on returning here every year in August as long as possible. It is perfect for our group!
