Comfortable and Relaxing
Quiet. Very clean. All necessities covered. Perfect for couples. Great escape from the city. As much fun as our young kids would have epxloring the propery and walking the creek, we've decided to keep this as our own secret getaway.
We had a great experience.
This cottage was the perfect get away for a few days. We started our honeymoon here and could not have picked a more relaxing and beautiful place. The House was perfect and we especially enjoyed the outdoor grill and eating area. We highly recommend this house for a relaxing retreat.
As we made our way down the winding drive, we came across a family of deer grazing. The fire pit by the creek was amazing with the smell of burning mesquite. Morning coffee on the porch presented roll call of many birds which was the only thing interrupting the silence. The next night as we enjoyed dinner outside, our dinner conversations did not seem to interrupt the evening grazing of the family of deer. There was a mysterious lack of mosquitoes (not a single one), which makes for a pleasant time for a family with sweet blood. The cottage was well appointed including soft close cabinets, stainless appliances, granite counters, Calphalon cookware, William Sonoma dishes/mixing bowls, rain head shower, Hunter ceiling fans and luxurious linens. Wifi was adequate for family of four (including 2 teenagers). Approximately 15-20 minutes into Dripping Springs for grocery store and it was about 40-50 min drive to Zilker Park or downtown Austin on the ONE day that we drove into the city.
Our family loved The Cottage by the Creek. Quite, clean, lovely grounds, friendly wild-life. We miss the fox already.
So glad you enjoyed your stay, Kelly!! Mr Fox is quite the celebrity at The Cottage By The Creek!!! Please come back anytime!!
We loved everything about our stay. The property and home were beautiful and had everything needed or wanted. So many nice touches for a special time. We could not have picked a better place for our first visit to the hill country. Thank you so much for opening your home for others to enjoy.
Thank You for taking such good care of our home! We love to share our beautiful slice of heaven on earth with others. Please come back again when the weather is warm and enjoy some bonfires by the creek.

Christmas at the Cottage by the Creek
My wife and I desperately needed some R&R after a very busy 2017 so we decided to stay at the Cottage by the Creek. This was the perfect place for just that. The property is beautiful and Cottage was well very appointed and clean. The owner was gracious and provided a nice bottle of wine and some delictable muffins.
We truly enjoyed our time in the Dripping Springs area and the Cottage by the Creek. We will definitely return!
Thanks so much, Clint. We love sharing our beautiful cottage with our guests and are glad you found the R & R you were looking for. You were perfect guests and we look forward to your return anytime!!
Once you make the turn down our winding private drive I doubt you will want to leave. But, if you do feel like exploring the beautiful hill country, our cottage is just fifteen minutes northwest of downtown Dripping Springs and is conveniently located near numerous wedding venues, wineries and breweries. Pedernales Fall State Park is only 15 short minutes away. Historic towns such as Johnson City, Fredricksburg, Luckenback, and Gruene are an easy drive, as well as the cities of Austin and San Antonio if you care to venture out.
