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!

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.

Relaxing, peaceful get-away

  • 5 of 5

This house on Lake Austin is clearly a work of a lot of love, and the space is filled with that feeling! My now-wife and I stayed here on our wedding night and the night after. We greatly enjoyed sitting on the bottom deck with our coffees in the mornings as a newly married couple, watching the fog rise off of the water as the sun came up.

Sharon and her husband were awesome! They were extremely accommodating and eager to make this weekend the best that it could be for us. We really enjoyed this house and look forward to coming back!

We absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! The home owner went above and beyond to surprise my wife on our first get a way since our son was born almost 5 years ago. We can't wait to go back with our son, and are happy to have met these wonderful people/homeowners. The property is truly beautiful, and is an amazing place to relax, and have fun. Thank you again for the great time!
