Find lakefront property with a Lake Austin cabin

Lake Austin is an appealing spot for lake cabins in Texas. Lake Austin is a popular retreat for boating and fishing, especially with the abundance of catfish and sunfish that reside in the lake. Several companies rent out motorboats, sailboats, pontoon boats, party boats, canoes, and kayaks, so you can spend your days lounging on the water.

 
Things to do

Find your Zen and keep it weird

Take the relaxation of your Lake Austin vacation rental to the next level with a pampering massage or holistic treatment at the massive Lake Austin Spa Resort. If you haven't had your fill of lake time, check out neighboring Lake Travis for even more water activities. The city offers top-notch attractions like the Austin Zoo and the Austin Capitol Building, and it's called the Live Music Capital of the World for a reason. Be sure to fulfill the city's motto and "Keep Austin Weird" by visiting the quirky shops and hopping nightlife on 6th Street.

Activities

Plenty of outdoor action, from bass to bats

Lake Austin's calm waters make it a popular fishing and boating destination, widely known for its excellent stock of largemouth bass. With a waterfront Lake Austin vacation rental, you'll be able to swim straight from your backyard. For an adrenaline fix, the area offers several ziplining and canopy tours, as well as horseback riding and hiking if you'd rather stay on solid ground. For a one-of-a-kind experience, go watch the spectacle of the continent's largest urban bat colony under Austin's Congress Avenue Bridge. Be sure to stay for the live music and local festivals when you're done gaping.

Weather

Under the hot Texas sun

They say everything's bigger in Texas, and the blazing sun is no exception. Temperatures from June to September can easily soar into the 90s, so be sure to pack the sunscreen. Winters are mild, with even the coldest month of January seeing the mercury rise into the low 60s (though the nights are cool, so pack a sweater). Snow is a rare occurrence, so you're unlikely to encounter the white stuff. The most popular time for Lake Austin vacation rentals is from September to November, when highs are around 70, making it perfect festival weather.

Natural features

Drop a line in Austin's lake country

Lake Austin is a fishing paradise, and that's exactly how they want it. The lake's waters have been purposely stocked with several species of freshwater fish, including largemouth bass, catfish, and sunfish, in order to encourage recreational fishing. One of the seven Highland Lakes created for electrical power generation, flood control, and recreation, Lake Austin is formed by the impressive Tom Miller Dam, which spans the Colorado River.
