About the Property
4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
You enter into the beautiful great room with wood ceilings, exposed beams, hardwood floors, and a large stone propane fireplace. The living room features a large leather sofa and two chairs. There is a tv and VCR in the cabinet along with DVDs and games. The dining table comfortably seats 6 with space for 3 more at the bar. The kitchen has granite counter tops and stainless appliances and a keurig coffee maker.
The master features a king bed, an enormous television, VCR, and a recliner. The master bath has counter tops, a large walk-in shower with a rain shower, and a large master closet.
The other two bedrooms are on the other side of the great room with a bathroom off the hall. One room has an iron bed frame with a queen mattress and the other has a barn wood bunk bed with a queen below and an extra long twin above. There are toys and books to entertain both boys and girls. There is a stackable washer/dryer in the closet in the hall.
All mattresses in the main house are from Austin Natural Mattress and are about a year old.
The guest room above the garage has a queen bed, TV, VCR, chair with ottoman, small folding table and chair for indoor or outdoor use, microwave, electric kettle, keurig coffee maker, and a small refrigerator. The bathroom has a standard tub and shower. This room is quiet and private retreat from the main house.
There is a sitting area on the front porch and a large back porch with a large sofa, butterfly extending dining table, and a large grill. The back porch is completely gated for dogs and small children. The cabin backs to a cliff over the lake and when water levels are high enough you can see the lake from the back yard. There are large oaks and junipers in the back yard and a bird feeder that attracts tufted titmice, cardinals, chickadees, finches, and buntings. There is a stone patio with a propane fire pit (This generally cannot be used due to burn bans), swings, and a hammock.
The yard is xeriscaped and teaming with native plants and wild flowers in season.
The house has hardwoods and tile throughout. No carpeting. Green cleaners and green paper products are provided.
The miles of paved trails and hiking trails make The Hollows a great destination for outdoor enthusiasts. The community also offers 3 beautiful swimming pools overlooking the lake and a hot tub. There is a community fitness center and a restaurant that is open from Spring Break thru Labor Day Fridays and Saturdays. There is a play scape and volleyball court below the pool. The Northshore Marina is walking distance from the pool complex. You can arrange for boat rentals, swim from the dock in the designated swim area, or get ice cream from the marina's store and watch the boats go by. This complex is about a mile from our cabin.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: My husband and I moved to Austin from Norway in 1995 to go to graduate school at UT. We have 3 children ages 6, 11, and 14.
Why the Owner Chose Jonestown, TX, USA:
We rented a cabin in the Hollow for several years before we bought this property. We chose this cabin for it's peaceful location. The Hollows is only 45 minutes from downtown Austin. There is usually a breeze, especially at the pool, and fewer mosquitoes. The temperature is generally a few degrees cooler than downtown as well. It's a quick and wonderful escape from our hectic lives in the city.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The rustic charm of the cabin is refreshing. I especially enjoy relaxing on the back porch. The trails are quiet and easily accessible. You can find most things you need in Lago Vista which is about half a mile from The Hollows entrance on 1431. Flat Creek Winery and the Balcones Conservation Preserve are both a few miles away.
