LAKE AUSTIN GUEST HOUSE RETREAT!

Lake Austin Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Luxury – noun - a pleasure out of the ordinary allowed to oneself: the luxury of an extra piece of the cake.

Nestled on the shores of Lake Austin along a stretch of the lake known as “barefoot alley”, is Camp Sawin, a 2 acre gated estate. We are situated between the cool, clear lake (avg. water temp 65 degrees) and a nature preserve. Camp Sawin is a private residence that you will want to make your secret luxury getaway on Lake Austin.

From Camp Sawin, Austin, known as “The Live Music Capital of the World”, is just 30 minutes by car, about 45 minutes by boat. Imagine an evening cruise on our 22 foot Tige’ to Tom Miller dam. From Tom Miller Dam a 5-minute cab gets you just about anywhere downtown. No hassle just pure relaxation. 10 minutes from Camp Sawin you will find The Hill Country Galleria, great restaurants (Rocco’s, Steiner Steak House, Hudsons On the Bend, Carlos and Charlies), grocery stores (Randall’s and HEB), fast food (Sonic, Whataburger, McDonalds, Taco Bell), drug stores and gas stations. Downtown, the convention center, Darrell K. Royal Memorial Stadium, the Capitol, and 6th Street are 30 minutes and the airport is only 40 minutes. Golf courses abound with Falconhead, Spanish Oaks, Barton Creek, Yaupon, The Hills, Live Oak, UT Golf Club, Austin Country Club and Flintrock Falls all less than 20 minutes by car. By boat the Lake Austin Spa Resort, recently rated the top spa in the country by Conde' Nast, is just a 5 minute ride for a massage or other deluxe spa treatment of your choice. Just a few minutes further on the lake are several excellent restaurants like County Line on the Lake (BBQ), Hula Hut (Mexican food, full bar, great views), Abel’s on the Lake, or Ski Shores Waterfront Cafe (burgers and pizza).

The guest quarters, in a separate building from the main house at Camp Sawin will be the luxurious base camp for your Austin adventure. The camp quarters have two twin beds, two full beds, and one queen fold out sleeper. All beds have 600 thread count sheets and 3” of luxurious memory foam. The kitchen is equipped with a full sized refrigerator, stand alone ice machine, microwave and a convection / broiler with a full set of plates, glasses and silverware for 8, pots, pans and other kitchen utensils. A propane barbecue affords grilling. The main room has two leather recliners and a sofa, perfect for viewing the HD TV with a Direct TV movie package. Three ceiling fans and 2 A/C zones keep the camp at a comfortable temperature. The kids can hone their skills on our authentic pinball machine (no quarters required). How about a quick workout in the gym? Camp Sawin has a full set of free weights, treadmill, power rack, mats, heavy and regular exercise balls. After your workout relax in a 6-person redwood dry sauna.

While having 1100 square feet of luxury on the inside the real fun at Camp Sawin in our opinion is found outside. Our 2-acre property is crammed with goodies. The grass playing field has plenty of room. In the evening watch the deer graze on the playing field. Stroll through the cactus/southwest garden, vegetable garden or rose garden. Stop anywhere for a moment of relaxation or reflection. Our lake view Jacuzzi is actually 3 interconnected spas, one of which is 5 feet deep. There is nothing quite like a warm, soothing Jacuzzi after a refreshing cool dip in the lake. Deck and patio space abounds so there will be no problem finding the perfect spot. In the evenings our six-foot gas fire ring is perfect for toasting marshmallows and scary story telling.

Most importantly there is the lake. Remember lake trips when you were a kid? Oh what fun. Be on the water from sunrise to sunset. Bring your boat and tie up to our dock. No boat? We can secure an off site rental or our 22' ski / wake board boat for rental with captain. Two water bikes and two kayaks are available at the dock for water play. Bring your water toys and fishing poles. A great place to watch all the lake action is our sunning deck on top of the dock.

See you soon we hope.

We were in town for a Willie Nelson show, and needed a place nearby. We wanted a place on the water, to be able to kayak and swim, while taking in some of the amazing views that Austin has to offer.

We pulled up onto this property, and were stunned at how magnificent it was. Huge home, huge loft over their garage (which is the rental), and tremendous views of the river. Mary, the owner, was extremely kind and down to earth. Made us feel at home right off the bat.

We kayaked, rode the cool little water bike things down the river, and the three tiered jacuzzi was great to soak in the first night we stayed. We sunned out on the huge balcony-like dock as well.

It was an inspirational stay, and motivated us to set the bar a little higher for ourselves as far as where we want to go in life. Mary is proving her guests with a taste of luxury living. Well worth the investment in yourself to stay at Camp Sawin.

Our family had a great time! We enjoyed swimming in the lake and the water bikes! Beautiful new boat dock for fishing or hanging out watching the sunrise. Also we really enjoyed the spa and the plush beds! The hosts are awesome those with two legs and four. Great place :)

A little...well BIG hidden secret!

I wanted a get away for a Birthday weekend and well, did we find one! I wanted on the water, dog friendly, relaxing and we got more than that. We got there Friday and it was pouring rain, normally you would complain, but not us, we enjoyed a nice game of darts, games and some much needed 'down time'. As the rain calmed down, we headed to the dock to let the dog swim a bit and we just fell in love with the property. The guest house was spacious and comfortable...decorated where it felt like home. Oh my, a great dock with water bikes, kayaks and some dang good fishing, a few keepers but just enjoyed the time with my family! Fishing from the water bikes was quite fun! We loved the new grill provided since all we planned on doing for food was grilling. And then each evening, it was nice to relax in the spa...nice! The owners were wonderful hosts, their dogs were so friendly and good with our dog and the property was beautiful and we just had a fabulous weekend!
