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.

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!

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.

RESTORATIVE ATMOSPHERE, EXCELLENT VALUE

  • 5 of 5
Visiting our son in Austin, we had the best of both worlds: easily accessible to the city AND surrounded by natural beauty of the hill country. My husband and I just relaxed mornings while we planned the day ahead, drinking coffee & eating fresh eggs (from our host's own chickens) on the private deck, reading, playing guitar, walking out to the pond, and meditating, even walking the labyrinth! The cottage accommodations were impeccable! Our host thought of everything to make the stay effortless, and was available, yet respecting of privacy. It was as though we had the entire property to ourselves. We appreciated the quiet and restorative nature of the space inside and out! We went into town afternoons/evenings, returning to sleep in comfort and convenience. Our adult daughter comfortably stayed with us the first and last nights of our stay. The cottage motto is true to life! Our first trip to Texas is a treasured memory and we hope to return!

GORGEOUS SANCTUARY, EXQUISITE HOSPITALITY!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful way to unwind so close to Austin in the original beauty of nature with dappled sunlight and birdssongs trickling through the tall trees on the edge of a natural preserve! Our hosts thought of everything - even fresh free range eggs for the morning and tealight candles for dusk. We were celebrating my husband's birthday with our friend and had a performance too. We had room to unwind and get dressed up and loved dipping into the social fray of the city and then having fresh air, stars and a place to talk and sip wine afterwards. Highly recommended! Thank you and we will be back!

PEACEFUL RETREAT, SECLUDED BUT VERY ACCESSIBLE!

  • 5 of 5
I had the wonderful opportunity to stay at the "Spring Valley Road Cottage" for six months (Fall 2012 through Spring 2013). What an enjoyable and relaxing time in this new, comfortable, nicely-decorated and well-equipped "little home"! The owners are awesome~ kind, friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent. It is just minutes from Nutty Brown Cafe, the Hill Country Galleria and the Austin Zoo. It's a short, easy drive to Zilker Park/Botanical Garden and Downtown Austin. It's far enough to "get away from it all" but very accessible to all that Austin has to offer. I have sincerely fond memories of my months at the cottage! Be sure to take time to appreciate the scenic back patio and the "labyrinth"!!
