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

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

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

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.

Perfect UT Graduation Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This special cottage was the perfect retreat for my family during our recent graduation celebration for our UT daughter. Every detail of the cottage is just perfect. The view is amazing, the area quiet and calm. We put our boat in just minutes from the cottage and were able to come & go with her friends for an amazing time on Lake Austin. Cynthia was more than accommodating at our every request. We will be returning for sure!

Relaxing Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5
Fabulous vacation location. We were very excited to find this fantastic location. The cottage is perfect for a relaxing, romantic getaway. Cynthia allowed us to bring our dog with us as well who had a great time in the lake as well. It was a great yard with a beautiful view of the Lake and 360 bridge. The water was very warm and we jumped into the lake within the first 10 minutes of arriving and spent much of our time in the water or on the dock. We cooked out most nights and ate dinner overlooking the lake. Through the week we had the lake mostly to ourselves except for the swans that came to visit in the evening. The neighborhood was extremely quiet and we enjoyed going for strolls in the morning before lounging near the lake. It was a great time and we look forward to going again.

Had a nice stay at the cottage. It's in a great location, close to shopping, boating, eating and sightseeing. Quiet neighborhood to take walks in. I liked being so close to the water to watch all the boats, skiiers and people fishing. Cynthia was extremely nice and made me feel welcomed. I will definitely be back again!!
