Why Owner chose Spicewood

We are a quiet and peaceful space (not a party place) with deer and lots of other wildlife to view and share space with. We officially have a 'no pets' policy but are indeed dog lovers so if you have a furry friend that can keep a peaceful space, please ask for pre-approval to bring them along. Must be pre-approved. Extra fee applies to 'additional guests' so please inquire about that if desired.

Cottage by the lake

  • 5 of 5

A very relaxing place! We enjoyed swimming and fishing off of the dock.

Denise-a friend if the owner went over and beyond of making us feel welcomed and comfortable.

Winery a short distance

Deer everywhere---so fun to see in a natural setting

While the accommodations is a 5 star the location is a bit remote. 30 min drive one way from basically everything. We didn't mind but just wanted to let others know about the area.

Remote, Relaxing, Rejuvenating

  • 5 of 5

I honestly can't say enough nice things about this property and its new caretakers Jordan and Emma. From the moment we arrived every effort was made for us to feel at home and at ease. The property is artistic and every building it seems has a story. There are ample amenities like grills if you want to cook, hammocks if you're wanting to relax and a dock where you can sit and contemplate why you don't move here yourself. Jordan is an excellent chef and cooked a number of mouth watering meals for us! Emma was always available by email or phone to answer any little question we had. They were full of great tips about the surrounding area and were just all around nice, friendly, helpful, cool people. We will definitely be back! Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Incredible and relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting on Lake Travis for a girl's week-end. We were greeted warming by Jordan and shown to the cottage. It was perfect and we had a great view of the lake. We both had a Thai massage with Travis. It was the perfect way to start the week-end and I highly recommend it.

Saturday and Sunday mornings we had private yoga classes with Lauren. I was recovering from surgery and was still on restricted activity so Lauren modified poses for me and also did some shoulder pressure point relaxation techniques.

We went to Krause Springs during the day on Saturday and had a great time at the beautiful natural springs.

Relaxing in the evenings on the floating cabin with a glass a wine and watching the sunset was a great time.

I highly recommend Living Waters.

I miss it already...

  • 5 of 5

We were wowed. The facilities here are so nice, the grounds lovely and the quiet atmosphere was EXACTLY what we wanted. We felt like we had the place all to ourselves, even though we know a couple of people were there for a day or two. The darkness at night allows for star gazing, the warm sun and water are inviting, the shade is cooling. Wonderful. Our accommodations were very much up to our expectations and very clean and comfy. One note, the well water here is smelly, but if you leave some out over night, the smell goes away and the water is ready to use. Communication with the managers was always clear and concise. We are already talking about returning later this year.

Best Getaway Yet!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went here to get away from our busy life and take some much needed R&R. Well that is exactly what we got from the time we arrived till the time we left. The room was amazing and the ambiance of the entire area leaves you wanting to go back. We went with the romance package for our stay and having a home made breakfast delivered to our door step was such a nice treat for myself as I am usually the one cooking. We also opted for a private yoga and one on one messages. Lots of great things to do like eat at fabulous restaurants and enjoy wineries and other elegant fun. Bethany assisted in finding all the fun things for us to do and it left me little to worry or plan.

magical wedding at Living Waters

  • 5 of 5

We didn’t want a cookie-cutter wedding. We’re allergic to halls with zero personality and palatial estates that are too grand and antiseptically pristine for such an intimate and personal event.

Our wedding held at Living Waters was nothing short of magical. As soon as we stepped through the front gate, we knew we found the venue we’d been looking for. There is a sacred, peaceful, harmonious energy here, along with stunning natural grounds and buildings with unique architecture that is at turns modern, funky and homey (not the typical Laura Ashley, kitschy, Texas B&B that predominates in the area).

Our wish list was long:

We wanted a site that would allow for a day-long wedding and reception, as we wanted to spend more than 2 minutes with each of our mostly out-of-state guests. Our preference was to have a place on the water with room for 100 people, but still feel intimate. We desired a space that would accommodate our wedding party for the weekend so we’d have time to connect instead of running around from place to place. We were looking to get married under a canopy of wise old trees. We wanted to choose our own vendors. And we wanted to work with kind, communicative, honest, warm folks. Check, check, check, check, check and check. And we didn’t want to have to harvest our organs to pay for it.

Above and beyond really doesn’t cover it:

Bethany and Travis Webb could not have been more accommodating. Their love of Living Waters and experience hosting their own wedding on site was invaluable. They recommended local vendors, gave us tips on how to lay out the space and the day. They let us tour the site multiple times for our do-it-yourself planning purposes. Travis toiled to update the pavilion, helped us erect a wedding arch and ensured the grounds looked fantastic. And Bethany saved our behinds by agreeing to coordinate our wedding day at the 11th hour after we were forced to let our coordinator go. I should say: Bethany didn’t just coordinate, she took charge, and did so with incredible grace, dedication and good humor. Our wedding would’ve most likely been a total calamity without her.

We had the wedding of our dreams. A wedding we believe truly reflected us and our union. We cannot recommend Living Waters more highly and are pleased to call the Webbs our friends.

~Christine and Nathan Hathaway

**And you owe it to yourself to experience Bethany’s yoga class and Travis’s Thai massage!
