Quintessential Texas Hill Country getaway
We had an overall lovely stay in this beautiful Texas Hill Country house. It was exactly what we were looking for for our group of 5 adults: clean, spacious, modernized, with tasteful western flair. Everyone had their own comfortable bed, and a great common area for hanging out along with a great dining area and a good-sized and well-designed kitchen.
The large deck was the crown jewel of the place!! It was the PERFECT place for sitting in the morning with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine at sunset. The setting and views were to die for - green rolling hills with tons of trees and beautiful Lake Travis in the background. Bonus points for the firepit, which we didn't get to use because it rained during our stay.
And the other best part about the cabin is the gorgeous property it sits in. There are so many beautiful trails and hikes and biking and walking possibilities, often never seeing another soul, so it feels like a high-end secluded nature resort.
I am giving 4 stars not 5, however, because there were some things that need improving. Such as: the listing correctly says that the 4 bedroom (the double bedroom) is over the garage, but what isn't entirely clear is that the garage is a completely separate building, and so if it's raining, you're going to get wet. It feels a little too removed from the main house, so much that I wouldn't feel comfortable putting young children in it.
I also think some safety improvements need to be made - the steps leading up to the garage bedroom can be treacherous; there are a couple of steps that are wobbly and if you're not careful, you can slip and fall on them. And the rain doesn't help either as the steps became slippery. There also needs to be better lighting in the garage/steps area - although there are path lights up the steps, it still wasn't bright enough all the time, and we never could figure out how to turn on the sconce lights over the garage. Maybe the answer was in the welcome book, which we admittedly didn't read fully (we were on vacation), but if there was a light switch, we couldn't find it. So it was dangerously dark at times.
The other downside is privacy. Although the cabin is in a generally secluded area, it is built essentially right on top of 2 other cabins. We understand the need to not play loud music, but we felt we couldn't even have any conversation on the back deck without the neighbors on either side of us hearing every word.
But again, overall great stay!!!
The weekend was awesome!
The house was beautiful and very clean with a great view of the lake. The house had everything you needed for a perfect weekend get away. My family loved all the pool activities which were a very short distance from the house. We had brought our boat and kept it in a slip in the marina, all the facilities were easy accessible and the people were super nice. Bill Wallace was a super host. If we had any questions or needed anything he was right on top of it. My family can not wait to come back again. It was a great experience.
Great family property!
Great property for a good size family!
Great Family Vacation
We had a wonderful stay for 4 nights in June with our adult children and our grandchildren. The house is perfect size for all of us, and we utilized the apartment above the garage. The house was clean, and very well equipped. We especially loved the back deck, with it's view of the lake. The deck is large and a breeze is usually blowing. The family loved boating/tubing and appreciate the connection between the Hollows marina and VIP Boat Rentals. We especially loved the beach club, with several pools and the wonderful cafe with delicious food and cocktails. The internet in the house is a bit slow, so we settled for a low-tech vacation. There are two close towns, Lago Vista and Jonestown, both are small but there is a market and a few restaurants. The management was very responsive to any issues we had. We would love to stay in this house again someday. Highly recommend.
Had a good time,
Beautiful, quiet - the perfect place to relax!
The home is beautiful, comfortable and has a Texas charm with it's fire pit and deck overlooking the lake. I would have given it 5 stars, but we were looking forward to the pool and the hot tub at the beach club, not realizing that during the off season both are very cold. Too cold for any enjoyment. Other than that though the off season is a wonderful time to come here as it is super quiet and you have the place almost to yourself! We had a great time!
