Bastrop House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms + Library, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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!

Do not forget to take your cell phone, no phone lines at the cottage!

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

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!

Quiet weekend away

We spent a lovely weekend here for our 10th anniversary. It was super private and quiet (well, as quiet as it can be with a toddler in tow.) The cottage (more like a house) was clean, very roomy and had lots of space for us and our son. Our son loved running around, getting dirty and mooing at the cows. We loved just hanging out on the porch, grilling dinner and enjoying the fire at night. We had every intention of going to Bastrop and the nearby state parks, but we were enjoying the place so much we never left. Definitely the place to go to get away from it all. Thanks for a great stay!

Visted this property with a group of friends, and we all had an excellent time. The house is very clean, and well done. I personnally really like the Texas theme throughout the house. A beautiful piece of property to walk and enjoy. This was perfect for getting away from the daily grind in the concrete jungle. The owner is friendly, and prompt with correspondence. Looking forward to planning a future visit.

If you are looking for a place to get away, relax, and enjoy nature, this is it. Nice trails to walk through the woods. Great fishing pond. We caught Bass and perch. Watched the Beavers at night at the pond (you need a spotlight). Nice campfire site outside the house with firewood and patio table. Nice selection of books. Fully equipped kitchen. Great owners/landlord. Kids had a great time. Looking forward to going back.

My family stayed at the cottage for a week at the end of March. We had a wonderful time! The cottage provided us a clean, spacious and comfortable place to enjoy our vacation! We also enjoyed the peacefulness of being off the beaten path. When relaxing on the front porch we enjoyed the many bird species as well as a few Turkeys. Our boys enjoyed it so much they were sad to leave!
This was our first trip to Texas and this location proved central to all the different places we wanted to visit!

What a wonderful place to spend the New Year holiday. My 3 preschool aged children had a wonderful time fishing, making smores, and just enjoying being outside. The cottage is very comfortable and home-like. We will definitely do this again.

My elderly father and I stayed in this wonderful cottage over the Thanksgiving weekend. The owners made our reservation experience smooth and trouble-free. We arrived in late afternoon but were able to easily find the cottage due to the great directions. The cottage was nice and cozy, but had plenty of room for my father, me, and my three dogs. My father is disabled but could get around inside the house easily. My dogs were in canine nirvana. They thought they had moved to the dog park! We'll definitely be going back!

My family had a wonderful time at the cottage. There is plenty to do, and we enjoyed the country living. With three school teachers in our group, we were ready for some R&R in peace and quiet! The cottage was roomy and the beds were so comfortable! The master bedroom is spacious and the Texas decor throughout was inspiring! Thank you for letting us bring our Labrador. She thoroughly enjoyed exploring the country and watching the cows!
This cabin is a wonderful retreat away from city living.

This ranch house is just adorable and the beds were soooo comfortable! We enjoyed fishing, riding bikes, target practice, making a campfire, photographing wildflowers and playing games. Our dogs had a wonderful time running all over and exploring the landscape as well. Kind owners are a pleasure to work with. We will be back soon! Thank you!
