Our expansive home has a secluded view. When Lake Travis is full you can see the beautiful water from our backyard! When you walk into the house you are greeted with a large, gourmet kitchen and table for coffee in front of an old stone fireplace. The dining room, with its own fireplace, is to the right of the kitchen. The kitchen opens to the family room, with fireplace, TV, a table for six that can be used for casual dining or games, and a queen-sized sleeper sofa. From the family room you enter the great room at the back of the house with a fireplace and 70”TV, perfect for large groups to watch movies or sporting events. The master bedroom and a second bedroom are upstairs and overlook the great room. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, master bath, fireplace, and second laundry room. The other bedroom has two twins which can be converted into a king-sized bed. To the right of the kitchen and past the dining room, a hallway leads to three separate bedrooms. Two bedrooms have queen-sized beds and are attached to a Jack & Jill bathroom. The third is a small sitting room with a full-sized sleeper sofa. On the main floor is also a third, full bathroom and the main laundry room. Across the courtyard, the separate guest quarters include a main apartment and a studio apartment. The upstairs main apartment has a full kitchen and living area (55”TV, Xbox, and fireplace) with two sleeper sofas (queen and full-sized) and a large bedroom with a queen-sized bed and full bath. The downstairs studio apartment has two twin beds with linens for combining them into a king-sized bed and there is a full bath. The character throughout the home is rich, just like the Texas culture. The antique doors to the courtyard are reported to be from Alamo Village where John Wayne directed and starred in the movie “The Alamo “during the 60’s. The neighbors tell us John Wayne stayed at the house and played tennis here.
This home truly is a find. You are in the heart of the Hill Country and although you will love the solitude, tennis, and swimming, there are great finds in the area. There are 18 Hill Country wineries, 5 microbreweries, and more than 8 public golf courses within a one hour drive (map provided). We recommend Spicewood Winery and Stone House Vineyard (6+ miles down the road). Bring home a bottle to enjoy on the back deck with stunning views from the pool. For horseback riding, enjoy a guided trail ride from Silver's Trails in Spicewood. Antique/collectible hunters will love Fredericksburg, one hour to the southwest. The house is 15 minutes from outlet shopping in Bee Cave, 10 minutes from Muleshoe Recreation area, and 40 minutes from the airport and downtown Austin. If you are interested in setting up in-house brunch, lunch or dining options you can do so with our local, neighborhood chef. This additional service can be set up directly through Jill's Bistro.

We had a group of 16 musicians who came to your house for a retreat. It was absolutely wonderful. The home is comfortable and it seems that you thought of everything! We are hoping to return next year. The home was spacious, comfortable and worth the money paid. The kitchen was awesome. We loved our experience.
I shopped extensively for the perfect lake house for our family vacation. This house was the perfect choice and it is worth every penny. The house was clean and spacious. We had a group of 20 and there's more than enough beds/sleeper sofas to accommodate everyone comfortably. The kitchen was also fully stocked, from pots/pans, coffee maker to a pantry full of ingredients/seasonings to make any meal and more. The house also had plenty of towels (pool and bath) for everyone. The exterior of the house had a gorgeous view, lots of trees, plants, herbs around the house, flowers and we can see the lake from the pool and a trail which leads to to the lake.
I can go on and on with all the great features of the house but in summary, I'd recommend this house for those who are looking for:
1. big enough of a place to fit 20-25 persons & clean
2. you want a pool & lake view (there isn't many house options with both)
3. it's an easy 10 min to the marina
Lastly, I do want to note a just a few things that could be improved:
1. internet in the apartment studio was not as strong. The kids tried to watch a Netflix movie and the streaming was bad
2. There's 2 refrigerators in the main house. One of them was barely cold. I called to report the issue but felt it wasn't worth while to have someone out since we were only there for 2 nights. We squeezed all of our groceries to the other fridge.
3. We could not figure out how to play music using the speakers at the pool. Instructions for music was not clear enough.
this house is amazing! great for large families! Loved the two refrigerators and dishwashers! It's secluded but still close to the Lake Travis and wineries. Beautiful and plan on coming back! Thanks!
only negative is 10am check out but would not keep us from visiting again!!
This is the third year our family has gotten together from all over the state of Texas, for our family reunion here at the Spicewood Sanctuary! It works out perfectly for all of us with varied family sizes, from young to retired. The pool is a huge hit, the kitchen actually makes it fun to cook, and all the bedrooms are decorated beautifully. The staff was helpful 24 hrs. availability was excellent! We love it here!
This property was even more amazing than the photos! Upon arrival we were very impressed with the cleanliness of the property and the vast amenities at our disposal. This house is in excellent condition and has been very well maintained. The staff at Turnkey were very responsive and communicated all important information well in advance of arrival for every step of the trip from check-in to check-out. I highly recommend this property for groups and large families.
We used the house for a church campus staff retreat. There were 12 of us who stayed the night(s) and everyone had a place to sleep! Even if people are not prone to sharing a bed, there are plenty of options in couches if you want your own space. The separate house was nice for us because the men stayed there and the women stayed in the main house. We LOVED the large dining table inside and outside. We were able to share meals together and that was really sweet for us. Plenty of space to hang out and enjoy the company, but also space to spread out and have alone time. This house had an amazingly equipped kitchen, too. We loved our stay! No complaints from us.
