BUCHANAN LAKE/RIVER VIEW - BALD EAGLE COTTAGE

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.

$200 reservation/damage deposit. 1-2 dogs allowed at $5/night/each. Summer rate - $130/night; winter - $120/night. $15/surcharge/night on holiday weekends. 10% lodging tax. Pet friendly!

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.

***2014 SPECIALS: 8 nights for the price of 1 week. RETURNING GUESTS: 10% discount on standard summer rates up to 5 nights.***

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!

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

Lyn Taecker purchased this cottage in 2005

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

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.

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!

BALD EAGLE COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our break from busy city life. Visiting the hill country and central Texas is a favorite past-time of ours so we never have anything bad to say. It is heartbreaking to see two of Texas' most beautiful recreation lakes, Buchanan and Travis, in the low water level they are at currently due to the drought. We did find it very interesting to see the land at this end of the lake how it looked years ago before it was flooded to make the lake. It's also interesting to note how deep the water would be in front of Bald Eagle - a fairly shallow drop off with no timber or big rocks - a plus for swimming, boating, and fishing when the lake fills again to its normal level..

The cottage is very roomy - the master queen bed was very comfortable. We spent alot of time on the wonderful split-level deck and our dogs loved it too - it is a great place to drink morning coffee, watch the sunrise, and the hummingbirds visiting the neighbor's feeder. In fact, we were disappointed we didn't bring our hummer feeders with us - will remember that next time! We took a drive to see the bluebonnets - they were not as good this year as in years past, but still pretty to see. Fall Creek Vineyards is very close so we had to stop in and enjoy the wine tasting. The cottage and grounds are very well maintained. We hope to come back again sometime. Thanks for the detailed instructions on everything for the cottage - they are helpful.

LAKE BUCHANAN WATERFRONT COTTAGE, TOW, TEXAS

My family rented the Bald Eagle Cottage while attending a wedding at the Fall Creek Winery. It was perfect. It's nicely furnished, and less than 1/4 mile from the winery. It's perfect if you're visiting the winery or just getting away from it all for a weekend. My wife left two heirloom shawls, and the owner saved them and my wife's day. Highly recommended!

The Bald Eagle Cottage is so charming, immaculate and located in the best part of Lake Buchanan, Texas. Lovely view, and loved the porch swing along with the enormous deck. The Taecker's are so easy to deal with in renting this cottage. Even though the lake is low due to the drought this cottage is located on the upper river so you have a water view all the time. Also loved the wood stove ~ keeps everything so cozy. Can ya tell....we loved it.:)
