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.

Retirement home. On the lake, central to downtown, private neighborhood, view of 360 bridge, wake boarding, water skiing, jet skiing and boating to restaurants.
Central, no traffic, close to everything and a great deal!
Great place! Close to all the cool Austin landmarks. Close to downtown. We felt like we were out in the country, on the lake. Neat neighborhood, nice people, big yard and lots of nature. We paddle boarded, kayaked, fished and relaxed. We fed swans and geese. The property is nice, well maintained and had everything we needed. Not junky like some places. Awesome bed, TV and Internet worked great. Owners were accommodating and helpful.
I came in with friends to visit Austin, TX for the first time. We wanted something on the lake but close to the restaurants, sights and UT for the football game. This cottage is the perfect mix of yin and yang-we could do the football games, go downtown, hit Barton Springs then come back to a quiet lake house and relax from a long day or night. We grilled out, rented some jet-skis for the day and went paddle boarding. The cottage is really nice, the beds are very comfortable and we did not lack anything. I highly recommend this great place.

I chose this location because we were able to bring our boat and dog, the reviews were strong and it was the best price. The dock was just what we were looking for...right over the lake, covered, lovely breeze and a large table with a grill. The owners were friendly and we have fresh water and wine waiting for us. The great proximity to the central Austin location and it's lakeview was what you are paying for. The aspects I would have liked to have known about before when I was deciding are: 1) there is no door between the bedroom and living area, just a curtain. 2) you have to bring your own soap and shampoo for the shower 3) the towels are so old they did not even dry you 4) it felt very dark in the space ( the windows are the sides are covered with vines). However, if it is two of you who don't mind sharing a queen (the sleeper sofa was not comfortable) and are much more focused on the outdoors, than this is a good place for you.
This lake property was exactly what I was hoping it would be. The house was cozy and clean, and had everything I needed for a fun and comfortable end-of-summer retreat! The deck overlooking Lake Austin was the perfect place to hang out and enjoy a beer and the breeze off the lake. We had a blast paddling around and exploring the lake in the kayaks that came with the property, just as promised. The owners, Cynthia and Jerry, were awesome and accommodating in every way. I look forward to returning many times in the future!
We had a blast! Loved staying on the lake and jumping off the deck. Thanx for letting us use the canoe so that we could go to the BBQ place and see the turtles and enjoy some home town BBQ.
Very centrally located so we could get to the University of Texas and downtown Austin.
Can't wait to go back!!!!
This was the perfect place for our family! The cottage is precious and comfortable and had everything we needed for the family. The beds were very comfortable, the boat dock was amazing for grilling and watching the stars at night and the nature was fantastic! My kids fed bread to the swans and the geese that were there everyday. They fished off the dock and took the canoe out to fish, too. The kayaks were fun to see parts of the lake we otherwise would not have gotten to see. Many good memories were made on this family trip!
