Austin Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Country Home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Check out our calendar for open weekends & use the book it button (upper right hand corner) to secure dates immediately for our charming 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage on 18 acres 3 miles west of Lockhart with relaxing pond and spring fed creek. Fully furnished with all amenities. We will send you a complimentary 28 page visitor's guide to show you all the great things to do in the area while you visit central Texas. Located 30 miles south of Austin (ESPN X-GAMES June 5-8 2014, SXSW Musical Festival, ACL Fest,, Old Pecan Street Festival & University of Texas Longhorn football) and 15 miles south east of San Marcos (Premium and Tanger Outlet Malls, Aquarena Springs, Texas State University, San Marcos River canoeing, rafting, and tubing), it is centrally located in Lockhart, currently filming the TV series 'Revolution', (over 50 movies filmed here in the Barbecue Capitol of Texas featuring the 'Most Photographed Courthouse' in Texas) so you can have that country estate feel, but still hop into the big city for entertainment or splash into the San Marcos River for a cool float down the river (Rent tubes at Don's Fish Camp or Texas State Tubes). One of the largest outlet malls in the country is just a 20 minute drive away. The Alamo, Riverwalk, Sea World and Fiesta Texas are just over an hour's drive to San Antonio giving you access to a world of entertainment at your fingertips. The new Formula One track is just 20 minutes drive by the new SH-130 toll road. Outdoorsman paradise Cabela's in Buda is 15 minutes away. Quail Creek Golf Club is just 10 minutes northwest. Beautiful Lockhart State Park and Golf Course is 5 minutes south.

Terri & Dana Garrett, local community newspaper owners having published the Lockhart Post-Register for the past 35 of it's 142 year history. We live adjacent to this rental property keeping a close eye on our 18 acre estate.

Terri & Dana Garrett purchased this cottage in 1997

We built this home as a mother-in -law home and guest house, but have recently decided to share it with more travelers than just relatives.

With over 300 ducks, geese, peacocks, guineas and chickens, this is a great place to relax and enjoy nature at its best.

Our hosts, Dana and Terri were welcoming and very helpful. The home is a wonderful place to learn about the area. There are DVD's of movies filmed in the Lockhart area that we thoroughly enjoyed. The home is very well maintained with every amenity a guest could expect as shown on the listing. We enjoyed the Lockhart area and were able to visit San Marcos and San Antonio. We booked it once again for December, January and added February for next year. 5 star rating for us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for being some of the Best Guests ever! The Canadian geese miss you (especially Hop-A-long). We can't wait to welcome you next year with your migration from the cold North. Thanks especially for keeping the guesthouse so immaculate!

The house was great. It had everything we needed. We visited during the F1 weekend so we didn't spend to much time exploring the surroundings. Hopefully we'll have more time next time.

Beautiful home, peaceful setting and gracious hospitality from the owners, Terri and Dana

As soon as we walked in the door, we all were so excited and impressed. The house was meticulous, furnished and decorated beautifully. Did not feel like a "rental" property, but like a well-maintained home, cared for with great pride!

The outside setting was beautiful, we enjoyed watching the ducks and geese. Hope to return when we have more sunny days, to further explore the property.

Thanks for the wonderful hospitality and all the great information about the community and surrounding areas.

Nice Labor Day Weekend

My family really enjoyed our stay at the Country Retreat. My kids were thrilled to get the exposure to the geese, horses and playing down by the creek. Just a couple minutes outside of Lockhart we had a great BBQ experience at Blacks!!! The accomodations were very nice, quite spacious and had all our needs met. If you stay there I highly recommend a visit next door with Dana to see the Peacocks and other animals, just beautiful !!
