About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

This spectacular vacation compound on Lake Travis can accommodate groups of families or friends. Two authentic 1850's log cabins offer private bedrooms while a huge timber-frame building provides central living, dining and a gourmet kitchen designed for multiple cooks, all with lake views.

The 3 historic buildings that make up Moriah have been meticulously restored into a private retreat in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Moriah has been featured in the Austin American Statesman, Country Home Magazine and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: In 2000 we (two sisters and our families) purchased this property to accommodate our large family gatherings. We had been frustrated over the years with the facilities we had found to accommodate our vacations together. In designing Moriah, we took the best features of the various places we had visited to create a compound specifically for several families to vacation together with ease. Shortly after we bought Moriah, another sister (one of six sisters, and, yes, we have one brother) bought the adjacent property. Now, between the two properties, there is room for us all to be comfortable even when all 28 show up.

Why the Owner Chose Marble Falls, TX, USA:
We chose this location because there are activities for people of all ages. Volleyball, ping pong, swimming, boating, walking in the country, sitting on the porch - no one is ever bored. Located just one hour from Austin, it is easy to get away even for just a weekend.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact that the bedrooms are in separate buildings so that those who are sleeping aren’t disturbed by the people who are awake - no matter how boisterous they become. The kitchen, optimized for multiple cooks offers two sinks, two dishwashers and two refrigerators. A refrigerator for drinks is located at one of two entries to the kitchen so that the cooks aren’t disrupted every time someone comes to the kitchen for a drink.
