I grew up in the Houston, Texas area and fell in love with Austin after spending my honeymoon here in 1961. We spent many weekends and vacations with our children on beautiful Lake Austin. We purchased our property in 1977 when Steiner Ranch was actually a working ranch. We have seen many changes through the years, but one thing has never changed...the beauty and peacefulness of our 'little piece of heaven'. Gardening is my hobby and our property is extra beautiful because I spend lots of time tending my gardens. I am truly blessed.

Sharon Stanley purchased this cottage in 1977

Although our property is now surrounded by the Steiner Ranch Community, we have remained very remote all these years. Our Cottage sits on 1.5 acres beside a beautiful 5 acre 'day use only' park. There is a nature preserve across from us and beside the park which makes our property a nature lovers dream. The beauty and wildlife must be experienced because it's difficult to describe with words. Our location offers the smoothest water on Lake Austin for watersports, fishing, or just sit and enjoy it's breathtaking view. Because the south breeze blows the cool temperature of the lake toward our property, it truly is the 'coolest' place in Texas in the hot summertime.

I love to help others create special memories with friends and family which is exactly what happens everytime anyone visits. No one ever wants to leave...children and adults. There is something here for everyone to enjoy and remember.

PERFECT, PERFECT, PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to begin!! I recently graduated from college and knew I wanted to host an awesome party - this cottage was everything I had hoped for and more. We had initially reserved the cottage several nights but as our departure date neared, we couldn't help but stay a few extra nights.

Days at the Lake Austin waterfront cottage were filled with fun. From throwing the frisbee around in the yard, swimming and floating around in the lake, participating in and judging competitions off the dock slide, barbecuing delicious meals, AND SO MUCH MORE, I can't imagine having a more perfect setting to celebrate with friends and family. The huge grassy yard meant no shoes all weekend and the newly renovated 2nd floor of the dock filled with ample seating meant lounging in the sun with a gorgeous view in the downtime.

Perhaps one of my highlights of the trip was the cottage itself. Several chandeliers fill the rooms with light, giving them a charming glow. The two bedrooms in the cottage itself have oversized (queen or full) bunk beds - cute, awesome, and allowed everyone PLENTY of space. The living room is perfect for late night card games, hanging out, and just relaxing after a day out on the lake. In addition to the cottage, we fell in love with the private treehouse, the "Love Shack" - so fun!! The "Love Shack" is perfect if you're looking for a little privacy outside of the cottage itself, and it's located right off the cottage's wrap-around porch. And how could I forget the outdoor shower! I could not resist showering off outside after a long day in the sun. It was the cherry on top of the wonderfully decorated and extremely charming cottage.

Last but not least, my review would be absolutely incomplete without mentioning what an incredible host Ms. Sharon was. Upon my arrival, I was overwhelmed with the personalized sign, card, flowers, and delicious cookies. Ms. Sharon took the time out of her day to come down to the cottage to swing around on the porch and talk about life. If you stay here and you get the chance, talk to Ms. Sharon - I promise you won't regret it.

Owner's Response: Wow!!! I am so happy your graduation party was more than you could have ever dreamed it would be. When your Mom chose our beautiful spot on Lake Austin she was certain you would love it. Because she kept the location a surprise I loved seeing your face light up when you rounded the corner not knowing what to expect. The fun and memories families create together at our "little piece of heaven" makes all the planning and building efforts so worthwhile. I look forward to your next visit, and wish you the best as you pursue your dreams. Always remember...dreams really do come true! You are a blessed young woman to have such a loving caring Mom. Thanks so much for taking the time to submit such a detailed review. May God bless you and your family always

Most quaint cottage on Lake Austin, with best lake location too.

  • 5 of 5
First, it's a dream cottage on Lake Austin. Perfect spot on the Lake, because you have undeveloped views on the far shore and next to you is an undiscovered park. We have absolutely no clue how to fish, and I think we must have caught 12-15 fish in the short time we were there. We rented a ski boat and they came and picked us up from our dock (Float on Boat Rentals -- ask for Phillip as your driver.) Sharon, the owner of this cottage, is an absolute delight to work with. She worked with us on some last minute changes that we needed, and she was very flexible. The house itself is very well constructed, and very clean and comfortable. Two large bunkbeds (I think they were queensize), and then a bed in the treehouse as well. I thought my two teens would fight over the treehouse, but they liked it inside the house a bit better. It's the kind of place you can just relax, sit on the front porch, and stare at the water.

Owner's Response: I am so happy your family had such a great, fun vacation at our "little piece of heaven". Catching all those fish was really a special experience for you. Our spot on the Lake is such a peaceful retreat from the hectic pace of daily life. All you need to do is show up, sit still for a few minutes, enjoy the view, the wildlife and the serenity.
It's so wonderful to leave from a vacation feeling so refreshed. Thank you for being awesome guests. I look forward to your return. May God bless your family every day!

Loved it! Will be back!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been renting properties on VRBO for years and this is the best location we have ever rented. We have 4 young boys and they spent the entire time fishing, jumping off the dock and sliding down the water slide. We rented a ski boat one day and they dropped the boat off right at the dock which was very convenient. Sharon is super hospitable and she has made the whole place very warm, welcome and fun. We loved the outdoor shower and used it even if the indoor shower was available. The tree house was great and allowed a place for the kids to go watch a movie while we had some peace and quiet in the main house. While fishing, we caught some small fish and got a lot of bites from big fish but we only had little kid fishing poles so the big fish kept breaking our line but we had fun knowing the big ones were right there. Will be back.

Owner's Response: I am so happy your family had such a great time and made some precious memories together at "Our little piece of heaven" on the lake. After traveling from such a distance I'm sure your family needed a peaceful retreat to relax and have fun. Lots of planning went into every detail of our rental to help families like yours spend quality time together without all the distractions we experience in our daily lives. There is something here for everyone of every age to enjoy. Your boys are adorable and I encourage you to treasure every moment as they grow up. I especially want to thank you for being such great guests and leaving everything so nice. I look forward to your next visit. May God bless your family always!

Much time and thought went into the planning process of building our Vacation Rental. Our goal was to create a beautiful, fun place that everyone and every age would enjoy.

Best girls getaway weekend spot in the world.

  • 5 of 5
Words cannot describe how wonderful this place is. We had such a splendid time that we did not want to leave. We could not have asked for a better host than Sharon and Harry, we were able to enjoy so much more of the lake due to their generosity by taking us for a ride on their beautiful vintage boat and pointing out all the key points on the lake. Just sitting on the dock listening to the wild turkeys calling each other was an experience in itself, but best of all was catching the large mouth bass right off their pier. I have never caught so many large fish in my whole life. The cabin was perfect, we slept like babies and had all the amenities a person could ask for. The gardens are so beautiful and just sitting on the outside deck in the mornings with your coffee overlooking the lake and watching the humming birds feed on the flowers was perfect. We live in Austin, but plan on another vacation weekend at this little peace of heaven again soon and will also see about coming back during the winter months. It is nice to be able to vacation close to home without the long travel back home afterward. Love, Love, Love this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to submit your review of our property. Wow! What an amazing weekend we won't soon forget. Never saw so many large bass caught especially by women. You all should be in a Fishing Magazine. It was such a delight and pleasure to meet you and make new friends. I am so happy you were able to create more lifetime memories together. We are looking forward to seeing you back soon. Thank you for being such great guests. May the Lord bless you and your families.

My wife and I were married on January 11th, and on January 12th checked in to this Resort Cottage on Lake Austin. This was the absolute BEST location that we could have stayed for a week and relax after graduating college, moving cities, and planning a wedding. I would tell you that you should book your chance to go right away, but that would lower our chances of getting to go again.

The owner deserves much more than 5 stars for this location. This is not just a good getaway/party location, this is an experience that we won't soon forget. Driving through Steiner Ranch was simple and the seclusion of this cottage was quiet, but not boring. I'm not much of an exterior designer, but this place is impressive. It looks like it has been built in the past few years, the view is second to none (you are ON the lake, across from a property that can only be speculated to be Sandra Bullocks), and the kid's sandy playpen outside was a hilariously fun touch! No detail has been spared on the exterior of this place, and it only gets better on the inside. The "Rustic Chic" look really matches with the personality of the exterior. With plenty of bed space, stainless steel appliances, and the indoor/outdoor showers (nice honeymoon idea), this place has everything you need as a home away from home.

The owner made sure to leave us plenty of information about how to work everything in/out of the house, and in the 2 person treehouse connected to the porch. And if we had any big issues, we could contact them no problem!

This was the perfect spot to relax, and enjoy our honeymoon in Austin. We drove to Downtown Austin every day, as it is about a 20-25 minute drive, to do all the fun city stuff we wanted to enjoy and then drive back to this quiet little slice of heaven when we were worn out.

After we got back to the real world, everyone asked us what our favorite part was! All we could say to everyone was that we had an incredible time together, something hard to explain, something we won't forget, and something we could only hope to experience again...

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit such a great review of your special "honeymoon" week. I am so happy you had such a relaxing, fun, memorable honeymoon, and that all your needs were met. There's something about the "outdoor shower" that everyone seems to love! I'm looking forward to your next visit which I hope will be soon. May God Bless you both
