Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your lovely home! We had an amazing time! The kids played in the river & really liked the slide. Being able to cook out was such a money saver! We look forward to coming again!

Greatest tree house in Austin!

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe the amazing weekend we had in this property. The house is beautiful and has everything you need! The main attraction is that the river is your backyard!! We had so much fun playing with the different toys, laying out! It was the perfect summer weekend! Thanks Sharon and John for making this property available for others to enjoy! It is just incredible!

Comfortable and Relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I experienced a very relaxing and laid back mid-week mini vacation at this charming multi-level lake home. If you are looking for a cozy treehouse type experience with lake access mere steps away, this is the place for you. Be prepared to climb a few stairs as the house is multi-level including decks down to the lake. There was just the two of us, but home can easily accommodate 6 adults comfortably. Just minutes away from Austins many activities We would certainly visit again

Unique, charming, & comfortable

  • 4 of 5

A really fun place to stay, especially for folks who tire of cookie-cutter hotel rooms. The house itself is fun to explore, and its location on Lake Austin meant great fishing for my husband. We also appreciated finding that the Hill Country Galleria was only 10 minutes away, so we could do some shopping, go to a movie, and skip cooking if we felt like it. Being from a tiny town, we found the Austin traffic exhausting, so it was nice to have the option to stay out of it.

Parking is tricky, and we strongly advise arriving in daylight to make finding the house easier. But once you do, you will love it.
