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.

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.
My husband recently returned from Afghanistan for his two week furlough, and we stayed here with our two young children for a short getaway. It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to others!! To begin, Ms Sharon (the owner) is extremely pleasant to work with. She answers all calls and emails quickly, and is clearly dedicated to working with renters so that they have as great of a vacation as possible. The cottage itself is so charming; it has a kitschy, comfortable vibe that is quite inviting and a view that needs to be experienced first hand, as no written description could do it justice. My children loved that play areas and the treehouse is adorable! We found the accommodations to be spotlessly clean and well stocked. I cooked several nights and had no problem finding whatever pans/dishes/utensils I needed. We didn't get to utilize the outdoor kitchen/bar area because of inclement weather, but it looks awesome. The surroundings are private and quiet, though there are coffee shops/grocery stores/restaurants nearby if you need to pick up anything. If you've put this property on your short list, CHOOSE IT!! You won't be sorry. If ever my family is in the area again, I won't hesitate to book this cottage.
The two bedroom house was cozy and comfortable. The living room area had two couches and two reclining chairs. There was also a tree house connected to deck that could be used as another bedroom. The eating area was great to have when the relatives came over. There were two bathrooms but only one small shower. The washer and dryer was in the other bathroom which was nice to have. It has a large outside area that includes two sand
areas and dock with an upper large deck. Too bad it was winter when we were there and could not use the outside area. Attached to the house was another covered deck with plenty of chairs, rocking chairs and wooden swing seat. The lights surrounding the house, deck dock and fence was amazing. The one problem we had was it didn't have wifi and so we used a lot of data.
I had my bachelorette party in Austin and 7 of us stayed here. The view was great and the place looks so pretty at night. We were able to all stay comfortably there without any issues. I would recommend this place to anyone and at any time time of the year!
I visited my daughter and her family while they were staying at this lovely cottage. My grandchildren had a wonderful time with the expansive grounds to play in. The adults had a great time sitting on the upper deck of the boat house, dining on the cottage porch and jumping in the wonderful cool water. I highly recommend it.
We loved staying at this lake house. The lights at night, the views, the lake, the and amazing set-up for children are incredible. We easily rented paddle boards and a Jet ski that were delivered for the weekend. The lake is also a constant level and unaffected by the drought. It would be hard to find somewhere with a more welcoming and wonderful hostess, as well as enchanting atmosphere. It was a pleasure!
With summer coming to an end, we opted for one more weekend on the lake. This is my 3rd time to stay her and I've enjoyed it every time! Sharon always has the place in top condition and ready with some fresh cookies!! Every time I've been here, I have brought different people and they fall in love with this place. I will definetly be back again soon!
We are located in the Steiner Ranch area of the Austin hill country very close to Lake Austin Spa and the UT Golf Course. Water sport rentals, restaurants, spas and the Hill Country Galleria shopping mall are all very close. And the Oasis Restaurant (Sunset Capital of Texas) is only 10 minutes away for you and your group to experience.
