About the property

The Lone Star is a 4 bed 3 bath home with creek frontage and rope swing

The Loan Star Creek House is a fabulous place to come to and relax with family and great friends. We have crystal clear water, a small waterfall and a very relaxing home. Come here to getaway. The Lone Star Creek House is an oasis!

It's a 3,000 sq.ft. custom home on 2.0 acres on a bluff overlooking a beautiful cypress tree lined clear creek. This creek is spring fed and refreshingly cold! Sit on the wrap-around porch and listen to the waterfall that borders our property. Relax and getaway with family and friends.

It is secluded from the city for peace and quiet, yet this beautiful home is still close to shopping, vineyards, water sports, golf and great local restaurants. The Lonestar is all about relaxing, whether it is on the deep wrap around porch or in the hammock, or swimming in the sparkling water below, there is something for everyone.

This is not a party house and weddings are not allowed. We cater to getaways for families and friends.

Gaze at the numerous constellations. We have horseshoes, badminton and volleyball, as well as darts and ping pong on the porch and skittles, a fast paced game of pins and tops. Our guests are welcome to fish(catch and release only), hike up and down the creek embankments to see the caves and spring that feeds our creek, or paddle board and raft. There is a rock patio above that has a table set for those who wish to picnic outdoors and a swing hanging from a tree that calls for a good book to read. If you are interested in a more challenging way to have fun, we have neighbors who are experienced rock climbers who can provide you with equipment and instruction at whatever level you wish.

This newly furnished Texas farmhouse with handsome wide planked hardwood flooring is equipped to handle up to 9 people with four bedrooms and three full baths. All of the mattresses are brand new pillowtops. Two of the spacious bedrooms are up with a full bath. There is a queen in one bedroom with a huge chest of drawers and a rocker. The other room has two twins and a daybed to sleep three. There is also a loft area with a sofa and flat screen t.v. Downstairs are two more queen bedrooms that each have their own bath. The master also has a seperate jacuzzi tub with double sinks and a shower. There is a flat screen t.v. in the large master bedroom as well as a chair and ottoman and a large chest of drawers.

The great room has soaring two story ceilings with beams and a fireplace, ample reclining consoles and sofas. A large flat screen hd t.v with dvd player is next to the fireplace, with lots of games and puzzles for a rainy day! There are two tables in the dining area that will seat up to ten people. The kitchen is updated with all stainless appliances and granite countertops. It also has a breakfast bar, a pantry room and beyond that, the utility room with new washer/dryer for your use. We have supplied the kitchen generously with dishes, cookery, small appliances and spices for your need.

On the porches are rockers on the front of the house and teak sofas and a table that seats six with fabulous views.There are adirondack chairs close to the bluff with amazing views of the water, as well. We can also make arrangements for porchside massage therapy and yoga with a mobile therapist from the Austin area. There are so many places and ways to relax. Your hardest decision will be where and what!

Perfect Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a family get-away! The home is absolutely gorgeous and it is kept really clean. the layout of the home was great for many family members to spread out and play games, lay in the hammock, or get in the water.

I very much recommend this lovely home!

Christmas Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering at Lone Star Creek this year and it was wonderful. The house really felt like a home. The decorations for the season were complete. There was a tree trimmed with chili pepper lights. Seasonal accents, candles and lighting inside and out (set on timers!) very much added to our Christmas experience. The space is wonderful for a gathering. The great room is spacious with 18-20 foot ceilings, a beautiful stone gas fireplace. Comfortable seating was available for 9 people around the fire. There is a large dining table that is perfect for 9 people, and a smaller one that was great for the kids to have their own space. This was also great for dominoes and cards. The kitchen was foodie-ready. We made all our meals and were not wanting for any utensil or vessel. The stemware felt appropriate for good wines.

There were many indoor spaces for the kids and us to spend private time reading, playing games, watching movies. We were not blessed with the best weather, but did not feel cramped inside for 3 days with 9 people. The kids requested that we not go out on the third day because they were having such a good time.

The beds were many and comfortable.

The garage is a game room with foosball, beanbag toss, ping pong and a couch. It was great for the kids on a rainy day. The wrap around porch must be great in the warmer months. There are picnic tables on it and rocking chairs. A hammock and 2 wooden loveseat swings looking over the creek. There is a fire pit with multi-colored adirondack chairs overlooking the creek/ravine. The rope swing over the creek was a great distraction for the kids. The walk along the creek was a bit of an adventure.

The owners were extremely responsive and pleasant to interact with. We got instructions on troubleshooting the gas fireplace immediately. One other informational request was answered quickly (even on Christmas Eve!).

We look forward to returning sometime in the summer. This was truly a special place.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Another great weekend at the Lone Star Creek House. This is our second year to stay at this wonderful home. Had a great time with my wife, four young adults, one teenager, and two grandchildren! Days were spent splashing around down at the creek. We had dinner outside most evenings. The fans and the breeze helped with the July heat. The lower floor is very open and allowed for free flow of conversation and activities. There were enough bedrooms to separate the babies from the noise so they could get to sleep and our fun could continue! Truly a beautiful home. Very clean, lots of amenities, and built for fun and relaxation! We love this place!

About Elizabeth and David Keene

We are Houstonians who have owned other vacation rentals, including The Bootstrap at Round Top. We love sharing the natural resources of our properties. The creek, the bluffs, the variety of wildlife and wild flowers that God has so richly blessed us with will hopefully allow our guests the opportunity to relax and unwind from the daily grind and big city living.

Elizabeth and David Keene purchased this house in 2014

Why Elizabeth and David Keene chose Pedernales Canyon Ranch

We have always loved the Hill Country and raised our two boys there going to water properties from Hunt to New Braunsfels. This beautiful, secluded home is so well situated with great places to go in any direction any time of year.If you want football games and 6th street musicians, you are 30 min. from Austin. If you want natural spring fed water holes for swimming , there are two very nearby. We love the wineries , especially, as we have traveled to the California wine country several times. These Texas wineries are Napa with a Texas twist and well worth exploring! Check out the local eateries, Poodies, J-5 Steakhouse, La Cabana and, our favorite , Angel's Icehouse. We adore the house with the rock fireplace, great bedroom arrangement and the wide porches with the stunning view of the creek.The peace and sounds of nature soothe our souls!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with The Lone Star Star Creek House when we saw the beautiful creek and heard the waterfall. This is an oasis! The spring and its falls are audible from our backyard and keeps this creek full and clear! You will be drawn to the deep porches and the rock fireplace. Two bedrooms are downstairs and two up and they can easily accommodate your family. This is a perfect place to relax with your family, plus the location is so close to Bee Cave (15 minutes) and 30 minutes to downtown Austin. Our kitchen is well supplied and our porches are welcoming and relaxing.
