Property description

Imagine yourself watching the sunrise over the Colorado River flowing into Lake Buchanan while sipping coffee in a cool breeze on the multi-level deck, shaded by mature live oaks. Bald Eagle Cottage is the perfect spot to relax and commune with nature....or spend a romantic getaway, family reunion, guys/gals fun weekend. Sunsets are just as fantastic, illuminating the expanse of riverbed and hilly, forested park and ranch land. Treat your family to this serene and scenic location in Texas Lake Country.

Tow Village is literally at the end of the road, lying just south of vast ranch land and state parks. Great memories are made in unspoiled places such as this. Wildlife abounds, to be seen on short or long hikes, by kayak, canoe, fishing boat, or from the pier or deck. Bring your binoculars!

Located less than 2 hours from Austin, about 2.5 hours from San Antonio, and 4 hours from Dallas, Bald Eagle Cottage is nicely decorated, fully equipped and comfortable for 4-6 people. With two bedrooms and a loft, it's great for 4 adults or 2 adults with 2-4 children. Other features now that lake levels are high: boat ramp (which is on the steep side - alternate ramps nearby), fishing pier, dock and over 100 feet of waterfront. The dock is afloat since last March and ready to tie up your boat!

The LCRA provides current information regarding lake conditions, levels, ramps and weather; the Lake Buchanan-Inks Lake Chamber of Commerce covers regional attractions and activities.

Bald Eagle Cottage does not offer wifi although cellular coverage is good. The nearby Lakeshore Library on TX-261 offers 24/7 wifi. TV reception is limited, often to just one channel. Bring your own DVDs or explore our mostly VHS collection. New model TV and DVD/VHS player.

$100 reservation/damage deposit. Summer rate - $130/night; Winter - $110/night. $25 surcharge/night on holiday weekends. 10% lodging tax. $60 cleaning fee. Pet friendly! (1-2 dogs allowed at $20/pet for up to 1 week).

We use HomeAway Payments system exclusively.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Lyn and Kevin have been occasional Texans for decades, thanks to relatives who live in the area. We have owned Bald Eagle Cottage since 2005.

Why the Owner Chose Tow, TX, USA:
We always enjoy the beauty of the lake area. It is fun to explore the wider Hill Country, and to watch the varied wildlife. There's a lot to be said for this relaxed pace of life! Let Bald Eagle Cottage be your "home away from home".

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love this quiet place, relaxing on the shady deck, stargazing away from city lights, hiking, and most especially, observing many species of wildlife. The Texas Hill Country has many attractions and activities to explore if you want to get up and go.
