Lake Austin waterfront is a great place to escape all year around. Lake Austin Retreat offers a beautiful Mexican style waterfront property with a boat dock, huge decks and a hot tub situated on a secluded bend of Lake Austin just 20 miles from downtown Austin. Relax, unwind, enjoy the Stand Up Paddle boards, swim, canoe, kayak, bird-watch, fish, or enjoy a spa-treatment at nearby Lake Austin Spa. The house accommodates 6 guests, and the spacious back yard offers an abundance of outdoor space for socializing, BBQ'n, playing or enjoying quiet hammock-time. Bring your boat and ski (boats can be moored at the dock but no boat lift is available), or lounge by the water's edge and drink in the view of the Golden Cheeked-Warbler habitat directly across the lake. You will love taking advantage of the most peaceful stretch of Lake Austin. Mornings are not to be missed. Grab your coffee or tea and watch the morning fog pull back revealing a glass-like surface that mirrors the rolling hills above.

About David M. Gottfried
I moved to Austin in 1992 and found the city where I will live for the rest of my life. I purchased this house in 1995 so I could water ski before work and found so much more than just a place to live. I found that the lake living lifestyle gave me activities and tranquility that add so much to my quality of life. My two daughters and I love to stay at our lake house when guests are not there as a mini-vacation from hustle and bustle of our lives in central Austin.

Why David M. Gottfried chose Lake Pointe
My love of being on the water and waterskiing before work in the morning drove me to purchase this wonderful house on Lake Austin in 1995. I lived in the house full-time until 1999, when I moved to central Austin to be closer to work.
What makes this House unique
The area across the lake from the house is a Golden Cheeked Warbler Habitat so it is completely undeveloped. The view from the 600 sf deck on top of the boat dock is just beautiful with an undeveloped 'mountain' (by Austin standards) instead of houses. Evenings and early mornings on the deck are particularly magical.

Had an amazing time with my family here. Was a perfect getaway on the lake. It was quiet and relaxing. Even caught a few fish while out there. Will definitely stay there again.
Wonderful place with a beautiful view! Thanks for having us!
We loved the location on the peaceful lake. Everything was perfect!
Enjoyed kayaking, paddle boarding, and canoeing. Peaceful and fun down on the river.
Will definitely stay here again.
A gem of a lakeside home
Our stay at Lake Austin Waterfront Retreat was every bit as enjoyable as we expected. From the changing colors of the river as the sun moves from east to west, to the jumping fish, to the water sports, to the expansive lawn, to the hot tub, to the modern kitchen, to the large bathroom and shower, to the clean and comfy beds, we loved it all. We'll definitely be back.
Lake Austin treasure
Comfortable cottage on beautiful Lake Austin. Great fishing and bird watching! Loved it!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We take pride in this little slice of heaven and are working hard to make it comfortable and enjoyable. Come back to see us soon. David
Perfect and accomodating
Very nice place and the owner was accommodating for a couple of requests and questions. So relaxing. The fish weren't biting, but we got the lines wet and that is always a good thing.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come back and see us. I will send a memo to the fish letting them know they better be biting. David
