Our amazing cottage is situated on the hill side, next to the first tee box and country club, and has breathtaking long distant hill country and lake views.

You will have full country club access, as our guest, and will just pay as you go for golf or dinning. Use of the pool is free but all activities you do at the club WILL require you to have a guest pass as this is a private club.

About Anna Naumann

In 2006 my husband and I purchased this building, which was being utilized as a real estate office. This amazing cottage is one of 27 units in this exclusive gated/guarded country club community along Lake Travis. It was built as a cottage, complete with 3 bedrooms(minus the closest), and 2 baths along with a full kitchen and separate laundry room. The location was hand picked for the sales office when the community was first opened up in late 1980's. We decided this place was way underutilized as just an office so we did a complete remodel to allow for it to be enjoyed as a cottage. We think you will be amazed at your experience.

Anna Naumann purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Anna Naumann chose Spicewood

Located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country and off the beaten path, is this amazing area along Lake Travis. The Spicewood, Texas area is just a short 35 minute drive from downtown Austin and my husband's family was one of the original settlers to the area in the late 1800's. This exclusive gated/guarded private country club community has an 18 hole Arnold Palmer designed golf course with a private club that includes swimming, tennis and a fitness center. A private boat launch in the community allows for boating on the gorgeous Lake Travis, when the Lake levels are more normal. We believe our location is bar none in comparison.

What makes this cottage unique

Full access to Country Club included. Guest will need to pay for golf and dining but fitness center, tennis and pool can be used as well.

Great cottage with remarkable views in every direction

  • 5 of 5

Wow, weather changed our beach destination weekend to the Texas Hill Country and we really enjoyed this unexpected gem of a weekend. My wife and I treated my daughter and 3 of her college aged friends for a few days and could not have been more pleased with the accommodations. Everything about the cottage was nice; decor, comfort, ease of booking, check-in, cordiality of the owners, etc. The view, however, was the most outstanding feature! There were remarkable landscapes out of every window and we just didn't mind the t-box just to the side of the cottage because the view beyond was breathtaking. We never heard the golfers ( must be well insulated) they just added to the ambience of the place. We spent most of our time inside enjoying some family time but did find the time to see the club and take pictures. We definitely plan to visit again so we can take more advantage of what the club has to offer.

This country club is not in the middle of things in Austin, it's definitely a quiet get away but most of the city's offerings are a small scenic drive away. We visited the Oasis one evening which is an Austin must.

If you want to eat at the club, make sure to get reservations so that they know you are coming and enjoy this quiet hill country get away as much as we did.

We would suggest this cottage for golfers, romatic get away, a few couples for a football weekend or just a family visit to the hill country. I did see that there was horseback riding nearby as well.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The home is very clean, very nicely decorated, well-equipped and in a great setting with a beautiful view of the river. It was perfect for our group (2 adults, 3 kids), and we were very comfortable for the week that we stayed. The beds, in particular, are really awesome! We used the nearby pool a number of times, also very nice and with great views of the countryside. Anne was very helpful and responsive the whole week.

A number of people have complained of the smell, so I thought I'd give my perspective: we very occasionally noticed it too (outside) particularly when the golf course sprinklers were in use. I suspect they're using effluent to water the course, something many "green" golf courses do these days. So at least for us it was not a problem, and is good for the environment. :-)

Just a note for future guests: one reason we stayed here was that it was close to Hamilton Pool, which we wanted to visit. Fair warning: you need reservations to even visit there, and they are booked two months in advance!! So we couldn't go :-(

A few very minor points: the electric can opener appears to be non-functional, and you need a scraper for the grill. The fact that this is also used as a sales office didn't really bother us (in fact, we used the copier once). But it might make some sense to "hide" all that stuff when its rented, rather than just leave it all out. It would make it a little more homey.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we apologize for the can opener and grill scrapper. We had no idea about the can opener and the grill scrapper broke a week ago so we will make sure we replace both these items. You are right about the smell. That is exactly what the golf course does and it is treated water but can have an occasional smell. Thank you for reapecting our cottage and for your recommendations. You are welcime to come back anytine.

Not what we expected

  • 1 of 5

The property was clean. We expected a three bedroom cottage, but we got a Real Estate Office with beds in 3 of the rooms. One of the rooms was so small you could hardly walk around the bed. While perfect for a group of male golfers, it did NOT work for a family. One of the bathtubs did not have a plug and paint was peeling from the window. The only place to eat was a bar height table - not good for small children. The property has very little privacy and no outdoor space for kids or adults - it is surrounded by a Tee box and putting green and a road. Any noise at all disturbs golfers, so even adults can not be outside until after dark. We would not rent this property again nor could we recommend it to anyone other than golfers who do not plan to be there except to sleep.

Enjoyed

  • 4 of 5

Love the indoor stay! We regret not going to the pool forgot about it! House was very well equipped. Had an adventure with BBQ pit (dirty)I cleaned the grill but not the bottom and our steaks burned thanks to a man passing by that helped! Burned my hair and eyebrows! Could not open the blinds in the living room man walking by all the time stopping and looking inside! Could not sit in back porch there was a bad smell maybe because the big trash can is close by. Anyway good stay good story great laughs!

There is a vet clinic about 5 miles from our cottage if you wanted to board your animal close by.
