Our Lake Austin Guesthouse is located just minutes away from a recreational mecca. Boating, golfing, hiking, fishing, etc., a plethora of activities for the entire family. We are located just a short drive from downtown Austin for those who want to hear live music, attend UT events, Circuit of the Americas, and anything else Austin has to offer. For travelers with a private airplane, the Lakeway Airpark (3R9) is four miles away and we can arrange pick up. We are located west of the city with easy access to the Hill Country for scenic drives, day trips to Fredericksburg, Enchanted Rock, San Antonio and Willow City Loop.
Year Purchased: 1991
About the owner: We have owned our lakefront estate since 1991 and have raised our children and pets here. Recently retired, we live here full-time so are on-site if you need any assistance.
Why the Owner Chose Horseshoe Bend Estates, Austin, TX, USA:
Lake Austin Guesthouse sits in Happy Hollow, a private estate on the upper end of Lake Austin, near Lakeway. The scenic road to our property passes through two miles of the Balcones Canyonland Preserve. With great consideration we keep the grounds as organic and native as possible and maintain the house with green building materials and green cleaning products.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Our gated property is unique and upon entry feels like you are stepping back in time, into an enchanted place. The entire estate is mostly shaded with large, hundred year-old live oak and pecan trees, native to Texas. The setting is semi-rural, private, yet two minutes away from all the amenities a guest could need. Our boat dock, with two boat slips, has a large deck above and one open slip for our guests. So bring your boat and enjoy the best stretch of water on Lake Austin.
