GORGEOUS LAKE TRAVIS COTTAGE FOR FUN AND RELAXATION!

Spicewood Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious Master Suites Close To The Lake

This Lake Travis cottage is where people come to enjoy quality of life. Leave your professional and personal worries behind and enjoy a luxurious, warm, inviting and fully equipped cottage with everything you might need for a week long vacation or a weekend getaway.

It is also perfect for a family reunion or large groups in that we have an identical unit attached that is available to rent with same floor plan. Rented together, both can sleep up to 17 adults comfortably.

Steps from the door you have access to tennis and a fitness center and within a few miles you have access to a full range of water sports, the wine country, and even a zip line tour.

Located just 35 minutes from Austin--the live music capital of the world filled with award winning restaurants, museums, and nightlife--the Cottage at Barton Creek Lakeside offers guests a unique type of experience. You get the tranquility and security of a guarded gate country club community but the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. The moment you turn into Barton Creek Lakeside you will see breathtaking, rolling terrain through the cliffs and ravines that plunge toward Lake Travis perfect for golf, tennis and lake activities.

This Cottage utilizes over 1,800 square feet of space to maximize your feeling of escaping from it all. Wide wall to wall windows allow full exposure to the amazing Hill Country views and the golf course.

A rustic limestone fireplace is the centerpiece of the living room that has plush, comfortable and inviting furniture. You can enjoy every possible channel of DirecTV on the big screen HDTV as well as a docking station to play your favorite music.

The gourmet kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a simple meal, grilling or a gourmet dinner including blender, toaster, wine opener, countertop electric grill, Keurig coffee maker, frother...even a lime squeezer for making margaritas! We provide all basic paper products including paper towels, napkins, and a small supply of paper plates and plastic cups. The kitchen counter seats 4 and the dining room set easily seats 6.

This Cottage has two Master Suites each with two Queen size beds with Tempurpedic mattresses, luxury linens, pillows, and throw blankets. Every mattress and pillow has hypoallergenic covers and window treatments on all windows block out the light-we equipped these bedrooms to ensure that a heavenly night's sleep is guaranteed!

One Master Bathroom has a full shower/tub and double vanity. The other Master Bathroom has a shower/tub and single vanity. All bathrooms have oil rubbed bronze fixtures. Luxurious towels, granite countertops and wood cabinets in both bathrooms ensure that the relaxing experience continues. We provide basic toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, hand soap) as well as Ionic blow dryers in each bathroom suite.

One of the most engaging aspects of this Cottage is the outdoor patio which has four overstuffed chairs and a table as well as two luxurious lounge chairs. You can also sit in two comfortable and relaxing rocking chairs in the front of the Cottage for a view of the Putting Green and views of the Arnold Palmer designed golf course with panoramic unobstructed views of the Hill Country. All outdoor living areas are made out of rock and we include a propane grill as well grilling utensils, serving platters and outdoor dinnerware and tablecloths.

We encourage guests to purchase their groceries before they arrive because you won't want to leave once you get here. Depending on your route to the Cottage, we highly recommend a stop at the new Whole Foods Market at the corner of Highway 71 and Highway 620.

The Clubhouse at Barton Creek Lakeside is steps away from the Cottage and houses the Pro Shop to set up your golf or tennis game. You can also grab some delicious food at the dining facility at the Clubhouse...every Wednesday and Friday night they have special menus for dinner at sunset.

The fitness center is open 24 hours a day and allows you to get in a work out anytime.

Lakeside’s award-winning championship golf course, designed by King of Golf Arnold Palmer, opened for play in 1986. Palmer’s course is fun for proficient players who are members and quite manageable for novices-offering exceptional enjoyment for every class of golfer.

Prowess with the driver is a plus for a good round of golf, as Palmer’s course is a big-hitter’s delight. Professional golfers rate Palmer’s design among the “Top Ten Texas Courses” and consider Lakeside to have the best Champions Bermuda greens in the State. A cascading waterfall and native flora highlight Lakeside’s signature 11th hole, a magnificent par-three. Indeed, the Dallas Morning News ranks it among the “18 Most Beautiful in Texas”. The par-five 12th and par-four 13th holes are both doglegs left with sloping fairways that reward any player who can “turn the ball over and take it deep.”

Guests enjoy the quiet refuge of Lakeside’s clubhouse retreat that overlooks the golf course and affords a lake view that is nothing short of spectacular.

Being on Lake Travis is perfect for ultimate relaxation and water recreation. It is truly a gem among Texas Lakes with its crystal clear aquamarine water. There is an amazing variety of boats on Lake Travis; from sailboats to windsurfing regattas to competition ski boats, jet skis and cigarette boats to huge luxury houseboats. There are public as well as private marinas and boat ramps readily available. Recreation extends beyond water sports to horseback riding and hiking. There's even a zip line facility within 5 miles of the Cottage called Cypress Valley Canopy Tours.

And if all that wasn't enough, less than a mile away you can enjoy the Stonehouse Vineyard wine tastings or special events.

We believe Austin is the most amazing city in America and wanted to own a little piece of Heaven in the Hill Country to enjoy with our family. We have a big family with kids ranging in age between 24 to 9 so getting everyone together is challenging. The adjoining cottage is owned by a close family member so that we can all go and have family reunions. Using both cottages, we fit 17 adults comfortably on beds and even have room for 2 more in a fold out sleeper sofa.

We ALL love Austin and this cottage is a little piece of heaven in the beautiful Hill Country.

Maelia Davis purchased this cottage in 2013

This Cottage is perfect for our family because it can comfortably house all our kids and their friends and gives everyone lots of options of activities. The golf course is spectacular, the pool is huge and never ever feels crowded, you can't beat the views, the deer, and everyone is super friendly.

Our Cottage is far enough away from the craziness of downtown Austin that you feel relaxed the minute you drive inside the gate but close enough to the action to get anything you want from Austin's culture, events, music and restaurants.

Great Girls Getaway!!

  • 4 of 5
Rented this cottage for my 40th birthday girls getaway. The cottage was clean, beds were comfortable, living room furniture very comfortable. Outdoor patio was nice to sit as we enjoyed our morning coffee. Pool and club house was walking distance away. The Stoneyard Winery was down the road. But those two things were the only thing down the road a little further from everything else.. Maelia was a pleasure to work with, quickly responded to all my questions and was always a text away. Will return to this cottage!!

Owner's Response: There's nothing like a girls getaway in the Hill Country! We use this cottage in Spicewood as a starting point to enjoy Austin, Lakeway, Marble Falls and everything in between. If relaxation and the Hill Country is what you're after, it's the perfect place. But everything is driving distance away…except for the Clubhouse:) Glad you had a good time and look forward to your next visit.

This place is more than 5 star!!! It is located in the magnificent and exclusive community of Barton Creek Lakeside. Being able to play this renown Arnold Palmer private golf course is reason enough to stay at this wonderful cottage (it really is a home) !!!! We were all quite comfortable in this exceptionally clean and well appointed cottage with all of the advantages of the country club life style. With our busy schedule, my husband & I are so thankful we took the time to spend a couple of days with my active 85 year old Mom and my favorite sister!! A memory none of us will ever forget!! Thank you!!

Barton Creek Lakeside is a perfect location for a family getaway, a romantic weekend, a golf weekend or a girl's trip. Between the amenities offered at Barton Creek Lakeside such as golf, tennis, the fitness club and all the nightlife, art and music that Austin provides (just 35 miles away), you can fill your days and nights at Barton Creek Lakeside…or do nothing at all.

This is a very unique unit in that we also have an attached unit available to rent for large families or groups. Rented together, they can sleep up to 17 people comfortably.

Lakeside’s award-winning championship golf course, designed by King of Golf Arnold Palmer, opened for play in 1986. Palmer’s course is fun for proficient players and quite manageable for novices-offering exceptional enjoyment for every class of golfer.

Prowess with the driver is a plus for a good round of golf, as Palmer’s course is a big-hitter’s delight. Professional golfers rate Palmer’s design among the “Top Ten Texas Courses” and consider Lakeside to have the best Champions Bermuda greens in the State. A cascading waterfall and native flora highlight Lakeside’s signature 11th hole, a magnificent par-three. Indeed, the Dallas Morning News ranks it among the “18 Most Beautiful in Texas”. The par-five 12th and par-four 13th holes are both doglegs left with sloping fairways that reward any player who can “turn the ball over and take it deep.”

Guests enjoy the quiet refuge of Lakeside’s clubhouse retreat that overlooks the golf course and affords a lake view that is nothing short of spectacular.

If you have a boat or jet skis, Barton Creek Lakeside is conveniently located near many marinas and boat slips which we can recommend. In addition, Lakeway is a short 15 mile drive away with the newly opened Galleria filled with 125 amazing and very 'Austin' shops, restaurants, boutiques and a spectacular Whole Foods Market. All around the area you can find small hole-in-the-wall delicious dives as well as magnificent upscale award-winning restaurants.

Two amazing vineyards are within 5 miles of Barton Creek Lakeside to enjoy wine tastings and special events.

The Cottage is an excellent starting point to explore the culture and attractions that make the Texas Hill Country so unique. With Austin just around the corner, take a tour of the state capital, Austin City Limits concerts, award-winning restaurants, the zoo, museums, 6th Street Nightlife, quaint shops, the University of Texas Longhorns and many other activities Austin has to offer. Feel free to explore the Inner Space Cavern which is one of the best preserved caves in Texas, the Longhorn Caversn which is always a cool 68 degrees inside or take a historic journey on the Austin Steam train. Close by you can paddle boat or canoe at Inks Lake, explore Marble Falls, and you can swim at Krause Springs just a few minutes away.

And if you are adventurous, less than 2 miles away is the Cypress Valley Canopy tours where you can zip line across the Hills Country tree tops.

The Lake Austin Resort & Spa has been ranked #1 in the country for many years and is only 31 miles from Lakecliff. If you want a more unique experience, you need to stop by Living Waters on Lake Travis, just a mile from the Cottage. In keeping with the 'keep Austin weird' motto, they offer community yoga most Saturdays at 10AM for a donation and you can also book an amazing Thai massage that combines massage, acupressure, reflexology and energetic balancing.

Most important, this Cottage has a very special vibe. Call it Austin Karma. It's perfect for celebrating special occasions such as engagements, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, etc. We are experts at creating custom Welcome Packages to ensure that any special occasion is memorable. All we need is some prior notice and leave the rest to us. Remember that Barton Creek Lakeside is an Arnold Palmer Golf Course within a Country Club without the stuffy country club feel. It is a relaxed community with a stress free playing environment for golf and tennis...or a relaxed walk at sunset with a 360 degree view of the Hill Country.
