Why Gene and Laurie Sharp chose Austin

Your cottage is located on 13.4 acres with a spring fed pond and lots of room to walk and breathe. Our immediate neighbors all have at least 20 acres. We are privately located at the end of our street where it is secluded and private. We are also adjacent to a 350+ acre wild life refuge. We welcome all animal life and enjoy the beauty of each and every day.

What makes this cottage unique

We are located in the 'Heart of the Hill Country'. We are close to numerous attractions, events and cities. However, we are tucked away in private, peaceful setting. Your cottage was thoughtfully decorated with natural decor wanting only for you to enjoy peace and comfort. We love this property -- It is a piece of our hearts! It radiates LIFE!

Excellent and Exactly as Described

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is immaculate and very comfortable for two people. The kitchen was stocked with basics (sugar, salt, oil...) and we were supplied with tasty snacks like cookies, wine, cheese, crackers, fruit....

The cottage is in a secluded rural location but not far from Austin's city attractions. The fields in back invite rambles.

I would definitely stay were again and recommend it to others without reservations.

Peaceful Country Escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this peaceful, comfortable cottage right outside of Austin. We felt like we were in the country with such a beautiful setting, yet found many tourist attractions close by. We enjoyed the birds, deer, pond etc. The cottage had everything we needed and Gene and Laurie were wonderful hosts. We would definitely recommend staying at this home away from home.

Best place ever

  • 5 of 5

We have never had such a wonderful home away from home. The owners are superb and the house itself is modern and with every convenience. The setting makes it. It is at the end of the road far away from the noise of traffic..looking out on acres of pasture, birds, squirrels and deer. A pond and meditation circle add to the uniqueness of the home. We plan on staying here again.

Beautiful escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this wonderful cottage for a weekend escape! The cottage was very clean and equipped with everything we needed and more. Homemade cookies, Texas wine, cheese and crackers awaited our arrival and Laurie gave us fresh eggs for breakfast in the morning. Gene and Laurie were the perfect hosts and very respectful of our privacy. We enjoyed taking in nature as we sat by their pond and just listened to the peaceful outdoors. It was easy to get to Austin, Salt lick and many different hiking trails. We would defiantly recommend and can't wait to return soon for another peaceful, restoring weekend in the hill-counrty.

Lovely weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband stayed here for a long weekend & were looking to escape our city life and relax. This place was perfect for that, it was clean, well decorated and the kitchen was well supplied with appliances and utensils. It's a perfect location to explore some of the local winery's and surrounding towns have good bars and restaurants. It is also fairly close to Pedernales State Park if you enjoy hiking. We really enjoyed the outdoor seating area at the property and although it is only 20 miles to Austin, we felt like we were in the middle of the countryside. We both cycle & this area is perfect for road cycling with winding country roads on the doorstep. The owners made us feel very welcome and we would recommend this to anyone looking for a few days peace and quiet. We hope to make this a regular get-away spot.

Beautiful accommodations for a relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for us. Cookies, fruit, wine and snacks were left for us upon arrival. Laurie really went out of our way to make sure our stay was perfect. They even provided floating lounge chairs for us to bring to Krause Springs! We really enjoyed being able to walk around the property and check out their chickens. We loved that the property was very relaxing yet still a quick 20 min drive to Austin. We will definitely be back!
