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!

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!

A lovely, peaceful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
I immensely enjoyed my week at Gene and Laurie's cottage and I highly recommend that you stay there. It was perfect in every respect from start to finish. Laurie and Gene were very warm, welcoming hosts who were also discrete and respected my privacy. As for the cottage itself, it was wonderful on the inside (impeccably clean, comfortable, well divided, tastefully furnished and decorated, with all the modern amenities one could wish for as well as many welcoming touches). The grounds surrounding the cottage were very well maintained and from the back porch, I looked out onto a beautiful yard and a field leading to a large pond which I walked to often. The yard also contains a very compelling labyrinth to walk through which brought me peace and clarity at a difficult time in my life. The birds, squirrels, hens and butterflies were delightful presences as well as Laurie's and Gene's three dogs who visited me when requested. Also, I was never bothered by insects when I was outside. Access to stores and businesses was a short drive away even though I felt as if I was a long way away from it all. If you book a stay at this cottage, you will not be disappointed.

Peaceful, restorative, healing

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is a gem! Tucked away from the hustle of the city, the rural environs soothe your soul. I come for health treatments in Austin periodically. This time I chose to stay out of town in a country enviroment. I'm so glad I did. Laurie and Gene were so hospitable. The cottage is extremely clean and well appointed. The bed was comfy, the deck and grounds delightful. I loved walking the labyrinth and even got a chance when I felt well enough to walk to the pond...Heaven on Earth.

Laurie and Gene and family are lovely people. They helped me get to my appointments when I couldn't drive and really "care". They accomodated me in so many ways. I am highly allergic to household chemicals and they were so respectful and mindful.They are salt of the earth and I feel like I've made friends. I highly recommend their place, close enough to town, yet feels like your far away. I particular loved the quiet, labyrinth, vegetable garden, birds and fresh eggs. I know you'll love your visit!

GREAT COTTAGE, GREAT HOSTS!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was perfect! Clean, quiet, and comfortable. The property is well-maintained and virtually spotless. Sometimes using online rentals sites you run into the bait & switch. This is not one of those. Laurie and Gene are the best hosts you could hope for. They have taken care of each and every detail and are available if you need them. If you looking for clean and peaceful then you will not be disappointed with Laurie and Gene's property.
