About Cynthia manages this property

This is our Mimi's house! She lives in the cottage the majority of the time but When she is traveling the world or visiting her other grandchildren, she likes for other people to enjoy the lake, like she does.

We will make sure your stay is relaxing and very enjoyable.

Mimi bought this property to 'get away' from the busy world. We used to live in this house and loved every minute of it.

There is not much property left on Lake Austin. It is quiet here and we love to go skiing, relax on the boat dock, or go to the local restaurants nearby.

Cynthia manages this property purchased this house in 1975

Why Cynthia manages this property chose Lake Austin

Retirement home. On the lake, central to downtown, private neighborhood, view of 360 bridge, wake boarding, water skiing, jet skiing and boating to restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Central, no traffic, close to everything and a great deal!

Awesome lake house!

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Close to all the cool Austin landmarks. Close to downtown. We felt like we were out in the country, on the lake. Neat neighborhood, nice people, big yard and lots of nature. We paddle boarded, kayaked, fished and relaxed. We fed swans and geese. The property is nice, well maintained and had everything we needed. Not junky like some places. Awesome bed, TV and Internet worked great. Owners were accommodating and helpful.

House was adorable! !

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast! Loved staying on the lake and jumping off the deck. Thanx for letting us use the canoe so that we could go to the BBQ place and see the turtles and enjoy some home town BBQ.

Very centrally located so we could get to the University of Texas and downtown Austin.

Can't wait to go back!!!!

Perfect place on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family! The cottage is precious and comfortable and had everything we needed for the family. The beds were very comfortable, the boat dock was amazing for grilling and watching the stars at night and the nature was fantastic! My kids fed bread to the swans and the geese that were there everyday. They fished off the dock and took the canoe out to fish, too. The kayaks were fun to see parts of the lake we otherwise would not have gotten to see. Many good memories were made on this family trip!

Great Cottage on Lake Austin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the cottage. It is perfect for a couple. Great setup with a nice kitchen and wonderful bed. The location is fantastic too, right on Lake Austin. We loved hanging out on the boat dock, enjoying the great views of the 360 bridge and Lake Austin. The 360 boat ramp is very close by and made it easy to put in and take out our boat. We are definitely looking forward to our next chance to rent the Lake Austin Cottage.

Pefect Romantic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed for four nights and did not want leave. Stress-free, plenty to do and within driving distance of downtown Austin. You wake up to singing birds and a beautiful view of the lake. We swam, kayaked, fished, barbecued and relaxed on the deck. The house is very clean, cozy and well equipped. Cynthia was very nice and made us feel at home. We had such a wonderful time, we'll be back.

Great time on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed for a week. Our Lake Austin trip focus was bass fishing. We fished at night due to the summer heat and the ski boat traffic during the day. Night fishing happened to be excellent! We brought my boat and used the boat mooring slip which kept it in the water and ready to go. The boat house deck is a great bonus and provides a perfect place to grill and relax with an amazing view of the lake and hills. The cottage itself was very clean and cozy and much nicer than what a couple poor boys from Louisiana are used to staying in. We also visited downtown Austin several days during our visit which was a very short drive from the cottage. The owners are very nice friendly and helpful. We will be visiting again.
