Why Gene and Laurie Sharp chose Austin

Your cottage is located on 13.4 acres with a spring fed pond and lots of room to walk and breathe. Our immediate neighbors all have at least 20 acres. We are privately located at the end of our street where it is secluded and private. We are also adjacent to a 350+ acre wild life refuge. We welcome all animal life and enjoy the beauty of each and every day.

What makes this cottage unique

We are located in the 'Heart of the Hill Country'. We are close to numerous attractions, events and cities. However, we are tucked away in private, peaceful setting. Your cottage was thoughtfully decorated with natural decor wanting only for you to enjoy peace and comfort. We love this property -- It is a piece of our hearts! It radiates LIFE!

Quaint, quiet, quality

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write a review while we are actually at a property, but it is so comfortable and relaxed here that there is plenty of time to write as we enjoy the tranquility.

As we drove up just about dark, the cottage looked "country" just as in the pictures. When we opened the front door, however, we were pleasantly surprised to find an interior that delightfully combined country charm with a thoughtfully decorated touch of class. The pictures do not come close to capturing the attention to detail and the spotless presentation. The owners have provided every convenience and we settled in immediately. It was even more fun to wake up in the morning light to discover this beautiful piece of Texas countryside. We hope to stay here many times in the future as we visit our family in the area. Thank you to Owners Laurie and Gene for sharing this wonderful property with us.

A special and unique place

  • 5 of 5

Everything we read about in previous reviews is true. This cottage is amazing and our experience even better than expected. Laurie and Gene anticipated every need and provided for them. Fresh flowers, homemade cookies and a bottle of wine on the kitchen counter, quiche in the refrigerator, and a decorated Christmas tree awaited our arrival. In addition Laurie provided us with a tray of homemade cookies, at least 10 different kinds, to take to our family whom we were in town to visit. The well furnished, comfortable cottage was sparkling clean and very inviting. The washer and dryer were especially handy and they even furnish the soap. The setting is peaceful and attractive in the Hill country. It's amazing to be in such a rural setting just minutes from the activities of the City of Austin and mere minutes for us from the home of our son and his family. We loved our 13 day stay and look forward to returning when next we visit family and hope the cottage will be available!

Traffic can be a challenge in Austin. It helps to avoid traveling during rush hour as then things move easily and smoothly.

Wonderful little cottage in a lovely setting.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is set in a verdant rural area. From the back patio you have a pastoral view of the horses grazing in their pasture which is surrounded by live oak trees and other native vegetation. There is a great pond on the property which is in a lovely setting. My husband and I stayed for a week at Thanksgiving. There were all the amenities you need. Laurie and Gene were great hosts. We will definitely be back.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is the perfect get-away in a beautiful, relaxing setting; complete with a bottle of Texas wine, homemade cookies and organic quiche that welcomes you to this cozy retreat.

Laurie is an amazing hostess who will greet you with a big smile, a warm Texas hug, and a list of fun things to do in Austin.

This is the best home away ever!

Need peace & quiet along with beauty?? This is it!

  • 5 of 5

Laurie & Gene welcomed us from the time we arrived and were always available if needed along with Biscuit & Doc (their horse babies) who are always ready for fresh grass at any time!! So many details flood my mind but starting with a very easy drive once you get into Austin; easy to find and close to anything you need should you want to leave serenity! Once we turned on the road that led to our getaway weekend – we didn’t want to leave this quiet, beautiful retreat which was far away from our hectic life in Houston. The cottage itself was truly a “home away from home” and all of our needs were not only met; but surpassed. From the fresh flowers; homemade cookies; fruit and handmade quiche with a bottle of wine (chilled) awaiting our arrival. Laurie goes above and beyond with her personal touch throughout the cottage and garden. If you are looking to relax; unwind and enjoy the peacefulness of a calm serine setting, then you have found the right place. We have booked our second stay and will continue to return to this peaceful slice of heaven in the Texas Hill Country.

We found friends for life. Thank you again Laurie & Gene; you both are truly fabulous. Until the next time....
