Overview

Bastrop Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4-6

A horse-and-dog friendly vacation cottage next to hundreds of acres of riding and hiking trails at McKinney Roughs Nature Park in central Texas. Our rates are based on the number of overnight guests and whether you bring horses.

Rough Riders' Retreat is a charming vacation rental cottage located in Cedar Creek, west of Bastrop Texas, just off of State Hwy 71. The Retreat is 500 feet from the equestrian entrance to the McKinney Roughs Nature Park. We are 20 minutes from the Circuit of the Americas (one of North America's premiere motor racing venues) and twenty minutes from downtown Austin, Texas ('Live Music Capitol of the World') and the 6th Street entertainment district. For antiques enthusiasts, we are just about an hour east of Round Top, TX, home of the Texas Antique Weekend.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths, with one full bed, two sofa beds, and twin bunk-beds. Kitchen amenities include a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, electric skillet, two-burner cooktop, electric kettle, coffee pot, a large roaster/slow cooker and an outdoor charcoal grill. A screened porch offers fresh air and soothing views. A secure fenced yard off of the porch offers your dog an off-leash area. Horses can be kept in a corral with a pole barn shelter, and the entire property is fenced and gated. We have room for 2-3 truck+horse trailer rigs and have a 30-amp RV plug.

The Rough Riders' Retreat is also available for extended stays. Please contact us for extended stay rates.

Why Joyce Leatherwood chose Bastrop

What a great place to house yourself and your horse after a fun day or two (or three, or four) together on the great trails at McKinney Roughs. Or, a quiet getaway that still offers access to Austin's entertainment district, or for after a day at the races at the Circuit of the Americas . You're less than 20 minutes from restaurants and urban amenities in either direction.

What makes this cottage unique

The McKinney Roughs Nature Park's trail system is one of the premier equestrian activity venues in Central Texas, and is located an easy couple of minutes ride/walk from the Rough Riders' Retreat. The trails are also open to hikers and offer classic Texas cattle-country terrain and scenic vistas as well as access to the Colorado River. Plus, we are only 20 minutes from the Circuit of the Americas track and venue.

Close to Cedar Bend Events...

  • 5 of 5
Rough Rider's Retreat was perfect for our stay in Texas! It is quiet, tucked away, but not far from Austin. A friendly tabby cat greeted us on the porch upon arrival. I loved listening to the birds and crickets at night, nature's music! Joyce was friendly & helpful. We were gone for most of the weekend, but I thought, wouldn't it be nice to sit outside under the stars in the evening and have coffee out at the picnic table in the morning. I just didn't have the time, but could picture it in my mind...a lovely little country home for the weekend!

A Very Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5
My family(3) stayed at this property in December. We were very pleased with our stay.
I was seeking a quiet retreat with quick access to the Austin airport.
The property is well maintained and strategically equipped with amenities that make a stay very comfortable. It is very convenient to shopping and other venues in Austin, San Marcos, and Bastrop. It is also minutes away from the Austin airport. Joyce and Jon were extremely responsive and helpful in facilitating and scheduling our visit. I found the Wi-Fi service robust and reliable.
Although we had no horses to house, we did take advantage of the hiking venue. We were there during some of the coldest nights of the year and were pleased with the design and performance of the climate control system. It is clear Joyce and Jon have made every effort to equip and maintain the property in a way that makes your stay comfortable and relaxing.

Simple getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Joyce and Jon are great people! Oh, and their place is nice, too, We didn't have a horse, just our dogs and some puppies. Joyce loves dogs and was very understanding. I'm happy to report our canines were well behaved and left this charming cottage in great shape for anyone who wants a simple getaway. It's in great shape, intimate and easily slept 4 (and 6 would just fine). If you are a horse person, they have pens for your equine friends and the entrance to the McKinney Roughs horse trails is probably no more than 200 yards away. It's horse persons hideout, but it works for dog people, too. Thanks Joyce and Jon, my new friends!
