Overview

Lake Buchanan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Imagine yourself watching the sunrise over the Colorado River flowing into Lake Buchanan while sipping coffee in a cool breeze on the multi-level deck, shaded by mature live oaks. Bald Eagle Cottage is the perfect spot to relax and commune with nature....or spend a romantic getaway, family reunion, guys/gals fun weekend. Sunsets are just as fantastic, illuminating the expanse of riverbed and hilly, forested park and ranch land. Treat your family to this serene and scenic location in Texas Lake Country. Tow Village is literally at the end of the road, lying just south of vast ranches and state parks. Great memories are made from the fabulous fishing on Lake Buchanan. Wildlife abounds, to be seen on short or long hikes, by kayak or canoe, or from the pier or deck. Bring your binoculars!

Located less than 2 hours from Austin, about 2.5 hours from San Antonio, and 4 hours from Dallas, Bald Eagle Cottage is nicely decorated, fully equipped and comfortable for 4-6 people. With two bedrooms and a loft, it's great for 4 adults or 2 adults with 2-4 children. Other features -- useful only when our storage lake, Lake Buchanan, is full -- include a covered boat dock with electric lift for boats up to 22 feet long, boat ramp, lighted fishing pier, and over 100 feet of waterfront.

Note that the Texas Hill Country is in a drought condition and lake levels are very low. Much of Lake Buchanan waterfront properties are now 'water view'. The LCRA provides current information regarding lake conditions, levels, ramps and weather; the Lake Buchanan-Inks Lake Chamber of Commerce covers regional attractions and activities.

$100 reservation/damage deposit. Summer rate - $120/night; Winter - $100/night. $15/surcharge/night on holiday weekends. 10% lodging tax. $45 cleaning fee. Pet friendly! (1-2 dogs allowed at $5/night/each)

Personal checks accepted if dates are more than 21 days prior to stay. Certified checks, cashier checks, HomeAway Payments or PayPal email invoicing. Please allow 3 days in order to process standard paperwork via email or fax.

***2015 SPECIAL: 8 nights for the price of 1 week.***

About Lyn Taecker

Lyn and Kevin have been occasional Texans for decades, thanks to relatives who live in the area.

Lyn Taecker purchased this cottage in 2005

What makes this cottage unique

We love this quiet place, relaxing on the shady deck, stargazing away from city lights, hiking, and most especially, observing many species of wildlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful and relaxing time at the cottage last weekend. I was really impressed by how nice and organized everything was! We hope to stay there again sometime soon with our friends. I think they would love it too!

Peaceful, Quiet, & Restful !!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Kev & Lyn, for sharing your wonderful cottage with our family for the weekend. Very cozy & homey !! Great beds & amenities. It brought back lots of memories of family reunions at my uncles cabin just a short distance down the lake. Our granddaughters (15 mo & 4 yrs)loved the dock & decks & all the beautiful flowers!! Very green & lush with lots of bluebonnets and we will pray for rain to fill the lakes again. We look forward to another trip when we can stay longer.

Wonderful Family Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful and peaceful place to stay!! We enjoyed this place SO much, everything about this place made us feel right at home. Had two teenage boys who couldn't get enough of exploring the lake and property. Only wish the lake wasn't so low! The neighbors were so nice and enjoyed meeting them! Already planning our next trip praying for rain so the lake will be up. Owners were so helpful and were available whenever we called or emailed.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful place my entire family thoroughly enjoyed. The beautiful hill country landscape was the ultimate peace one could hope for. Nice place to rest and be off the grid for a while. Highly recommend for those who need some good R & R. Bit of commuting but mostly beautiful scenic hill country drives. Many thanks to the owners for opening there comfortable home to us!

COMFORTABLE/PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5

RENTED THE PROPERTY ON SHORT NOTICE AND WERE EXTREMELY SATISFIED. ALTHOUGH THE LAKE IS VERY LOW, WE THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE ATMOSPHERE/PEACEFULNESS AND JUST SITTING ON THE DECK. CLOSE ENOUGH TO LLANO AND BURNETT FOR SIGHT SEEING.

Excellent secluded getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderfully relaxing getaway over Memorial Day Weekend. The cottage is very well equipped with all the necessities. Even during the rainy weather, we were able to enjoy our time outside on the porch enjoying gorgeous views of the river (it is on the arm of the lower Colorado River where it forms Lake Buchanan), and the hills. It was very quiet and relaxing. And our two children loved exploring the area.

Start up your bikes and ride!

  • 5 of 5

The house is nice and the owners are awsome to work with! We saw deer and wild pigs while enjoying the wonderful porch at night. Took off early in the morning on the Harley to eat breakfast in Fredricksburg. A perfect place to start and end a good days ride. The "Highlanders" in burnett has an great buffet for a wonderful price!
