Escape to the fresh air of the country and enjoy a cozy 1800 square foot cottage located on 95 acres of woods and prairie. Property is 0.8 miles off the frontage road, no neighbors, all 95 acres are yours for peace and quiet. Front 50 acres have cows, back 45 acres wooded with walkable trails and a fishable lake.
Located just off US 290, 4 miles from Paige, the property is minutes from the historic towns of Bastrop and Smithville.
Carefully re-furnished in spring 2006 the property includes; living-room, library, kitchen, utility room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each bedroom has a double bed, the library has a comfortable sofa bed( only one adult or 2 kids) and master bedroom has a futon ideal for small children.
Great for shooting, hunting (we have plenty wild hogs on the other side of our creek), but you can always choose cycling (two adult bicycles are available) or you might prefer fishing in our lake (we have fishing lines available, and our corner shop at only 4 miles away sells plenty good bait). Of course you might only want to relax, and we do have some perfects spots for that on our porch on the swing.
At night do try our campfire in front of the cabin, with comfortable chairs, relax and melt some marshmallow. And of course we have picnics tables in the best spots of the property, so pack your lunch or dinner and eat out by the lake or under a tree, all tables come with a torch ready for a flame.
Several excellent restaurants, antique stores, a full-service hospital and large grocery stores can be found in Bastrop and Smithville. With Bastrop and Buescher State Parks just minutes away you have fishing, swimming, camping, or kayaking on your doorstep. Rocky Hill Ranch Mountain Bike Park, ColoVista Golf Club and Pine Forest Golf Club are also nearby.
Some of the best antiquing in Texas is located a short drive away in Round Top. We are also just a short 45 minute ride to beautiful Austin, Texas (University of Texas, State Capitol, Lake Travis, Famous Sixth Street).
What ever y'all choose to do y'all have a great time!

My husband and our family really needed a place to go where we could just hear the wind and the birds, relax, play games,go for walks without having to worry about cars, people, just be alone and rest.
We had looked every where from Galveston, to Austin, and finally by luck we found this remote property , the owner had it on the market for a while as he refused few prospects, and after meeting with us and finding out that we just wanted to enjoy mother nature like him, he sold the place to us!
And what a place, so quite, peaceful, like time did not touch this place( except for the comfort of the house), all seems to be like the old days before, cell phones,computers,take out, just a nice slow life you'll experience there, and can enjoy reading the book you never finished, or bake that cake you just never had time to make, or just sit and listen the out door, look at the stars.... when you come back to town we just feel like we were away for so long, and had forget about every else, except one an other, and the memories we had just created on that weekend! The Cottage is just a simple place were you can recharge your batteries , do whatever you never time to
do ( reading, baking, cooking, scrap booking, sleeping,playing games, instruments,fishing,talking,relaxing,make a fire, BBQ on a real fire,praying,writing.......) and it goes on and on. We had so many different guests, from priest retreat to divorce negotiator weekend, baby news, wedding anniversary weekend,ladies get away,.... just a great place, and thank you for your interest in the place, we can't wait to hear your story!
