About Cynthia manages this property
We will make sure your stay is relaxing and very enjoyable. Mimi bought this property to 'get away' from the busy world. We used to live in this house and loved every minute of it. There is not much property left on Lake Austin. It is quiet here and we love to go skiing, relax on the boat dock, or go to the local restaurants nearby.
Cynthia manages this property purchased this House in 1975

Cynthia and Jerry
Perfectly located and we had everything we needed. The outside area was very relaxing and beautiful.
My husband and I stayed here for three nights and found the cottage charming and well laid out. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we were not able to take full advantage of relaxing by the Lake. A bit pricey but worth it for the privacy and connection to nature!
Peace and quiet
Great views and location. Neighborhood friendly and cottage very clean with essentials for the week. Loved kayaking a new area. We would stay here again.
You're paying for the location, not the house
The location of this home is unbelievable – right on the water with killer views and a lovely dock. But don't be surprised when you show up and the house is very small, quite old, and not exactly the luxury you'd expect from being in this neighborhood (or paying this price). It's simple and clean. But the couches are old and stained, the bathroom can fit one person max (and has no light), and there's no central AC. Which is fine as long as you know what to expect. And if you're new parents looking to sleep in, bring a mask and earplugs – the sun streams in through the old shades and yard guys were constantly around in the mornings. Overall a cute little place in a gorgeous area as long as you're aware of what you're in for. But we had a great, relaxing time and no major issues.
Picture perfect setting crappy accomodations
While the setting and tranquility could not be beat, the cottage left a lot to be desired. The use of the kayaks and water equipment and the deck on the lake was by far the best part. The cottage probably hasn't been touched since it was built. The plumbing and electric don't appear to be up to code. The couches are stained and old. It should not be listed to sleep 4 adults comfortably. It is very small. Cynthia and Jerry were very accommodating letting us check in early however did not refund our security deposit due to a missing strap that costs 10$.
Depending what the purpose of the trip is, this could be a great place for you. It is far from downtown over very curvy roads.
