It is a resort setting and not set up as private homes on private lots. Visitors going to the fitness center and tennis courts may walk across the front of the property and there are 2 designated parking spaces for club members. We do have a copier in the laundry room and a small built-in bookcase that has real estate advertisements and local maps of the area and this cottage is utilized as a real estate office, when not rented. IF THE IDEA OF A COPIER IN THE LAUNDRY ROOM OR A BOOK CASE WITH SOME PROPERTY INFORMATION BOTHERS YOU, THIS IS NOT THE COTTAGE FOR YOU. OUR CANCELLATION POLICY IS - NO REFUND - IF CANCELED WITHIN 30 DAYS OF YOUR STAY.
EXPECTATIONS OF RENTAL WILL INCLUDE THE NAME OF EACH GUEST STAYING AND EACH GUEST WILL BE CHECKED IN BY THE GUARD AT THE GUARD HOUSE BEFORE ENTRY. IF THE NAME IS NOT ON THE LIST AND WITHIN THE 8 GUEST LIMIT, THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN, UNLESS ARRANGEMENTS ARE MADE AHEAD OF TIME WITH THE OWNER.
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
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.
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.
The cottage at Lakeside was perfect for our stay for my best friend's wedding weekend. The house is very clean and spacious. The house has everything you need for a weekend getaway. My most favorite part about this booking was Anna. She is extremely helpful and responds to any questions almost immediately. She was really easy to work with. I could not have asked for a better owner to coordinate with on the stay. I highly recommend this place even if you're staying in the surrounding areas like Marble Falls or Horseshoe Bay. The drive was never too bad and the house and location made it worth it anyways.
We rented out the cottage for this past weekend because a great friend of our was getting married in the area. We felt so at home we didn't leave the cottage EXCEPT to go to the wedding and to buy some snacks! We enjoyed the view and the friendly neighbors but most of all we enjoyed the golf course! A course I'm sure my husband will never forget getting to play on. It's not every weekend we get the luxury of staying at the country club on an Arnold Palmer designed golf course where the number 1 tee box is right in front of your bedroom window! We weren't able to golf until Sunday due to them having a tournament on Saturday. Ana was nice enough to let us check out at 4 so we could go back to the cottage and take a quick shower before hitting the road. That made our experience so much better! We have absolutely not bad things to say about this place and we are already planning our next trip down there to spend another weekend with more wonderful friends!
As a avid user of VRBO, this was probably the best house I have stayed in! Spacious, comfortable, and great outdoor views! Plenty of TV's to watch, cool bar area and the rooms were set up great! The house came with all the ammenties mentioned and also the fitness center and pool were perfect! Also, we had issues with the combo lock but the owner was very responsive and fixed the problem ASAP. Even the security guards were friendly and helped us find a local gas station to buy some more ice! Next time we will stay to play golf!
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.
Great house and location. Perfect for a fun family weekend!
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.
Located about 45 minutes away from Formula One Racetrack and about 35 minutes away from Austin, Texas where you can enjoy the live music capital of the world, fine dinning, art, UT football and abundant shopping!
