A Great Experience Every Time and in Every Season

My family has been coming to this wonderful Lake Austin cabin for over 20 years.
In every season this wonderful retreat has always delivered profound and lasting memories. In every stage of life for our now grown children, the lake house has been woven into the fabric of our memories.
Croquet on the lawn. Reading a book in the hammock by the lake. The ducks swimming in the early morning steam that rises from the lake in the fall. Kayaking across to the waterfall. Dancing at the Oasis. Boat runs for hamburgers with the kids at Ski Shores. Lighting the fireplace and sitting under tartan blankets in the winter. Swimming off the dock. The giant pecan trees that arch there huge shading branches over the flat and inviting front lawn. Reading the New York Times on Sunday morning after hiking up to the convenience store. Driving the boat up and down the lake to look at the other houses and waving at the incredibly interesting cast of characters that make up Lake Austin. It makes me long for the place just writing this.
Every aspect and in every way this unpretentious family house has become our favorite relaxing place to go for affordable family memories.
I could not recommend it higher. You'll have privacy, space, convenience and as much (or as little) to do as your could ever want.
Go, give it a try and see for yourself what the magic of a constant level lake with a cabin only steps away from the shore can do for your peace of mind and happiness.
We are boaters, so the added convenience of two loading docks less than a 1/2 mile away and a secure dock to tie up to right at the cabin make for a great combination. Even plenty of room behind the cabin for the boat trailer still attached to the Land Rover.
You're going to love this place. But please, don't rent it too often. We kind of like it as our secret getaway.

Owner's Response: Thanks Drew for a lovely testament to our time spent together at Pecan Ridge on Lake Austin. I look forward to many more family / life long friend get togethers.
