The Bluffs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, private bath for each plus 1/2 bath (Sleeps 8)

We invite you to come and stay at our newly decorated 3 BR/3 1/2 BA Cottage in the upscale resort community of the Hollows. Experience the serenity of the rustic Texas Hill Country and enjoy true lake resort living while leaving your worries and city traffic behind. The amenities offered by the Hollows, including its award-winning marina, are unmatched, providing year-round activities - 18 miles of scenic hiking and biking trails, a spectacular multi-level Beach Club that features a dramatic infinity-edge pool, multiple grotto pools, a fitness center, indoor/outdoor dining facilities and kayaking.

As you walk into our Cottage, you can't help but notice the attention to detail - the hand-scraped hickory wood flooring, exposed beam ceilings and wood trim. Perched on a ridge overlooking one of several canyons in the Hollows, the view from the large elevated rear deck (13 ft. by 26 ft.), or out the wall-to-wall windows of the 'great-room', provides a spectacular panoramic view of the beautiful Texas Hill Country. The living area provides comfortable seating for socializing or propping your feet up to watch your favorite shows on the large high-definition TV with Blue Ray DVD player.

The dining area with its 60' round dining table provides seating for 8 - plus an additional 3 bar stools at the over sized island. The adjacent kitchen with its stainless appliances and granite counter tops is stocked with all the accessory items and condiments you will need during your stay.

Off the kitchen is an enclosed washer dryer, a half-bath for guests and a work area with a desk. WiFi with an all-in-one printer, copier and scanner is available, so bring your work with you (if you must).

The Master Suite on the first floor provides an escape from the hustle & bustle taking place elsewhere. Triple-windows on the rear wall provide fantastic Texas Hill Country views, and its king-sized bed with a Tempur-Pedic type mattress assures ultimate comfort. The luxurious bathroom has double granite vanities and a double walk-in rain shower. A second master upstairs also has a king-sized bed and the third bedroom has two bunk beds. All of the beds have Tempur-Pedic-like mattresses providing comfortable accommodations for 8 people with no need to hassle with a sleeper sofa or a trundle bed - ideal for three or four couples to share, or two families with kids.

We are the Berrymans - Bill Sr. and wife Lynn, sons Bill Jr - his wife Ilonka, Brad - his wife Jacqui and four grand-kids - Trey, Blake, Lauren and Austin. Conveniently we all reside in the Houston area. Bill Sr. is retired, Bill Jr. is with BMC software and Brad with Continental (United) airlines. We look forward to our family get-togethers in our Cottage at the Hollows.

About Lynn Berryman

We are the Berrymans - Lynn, sons Bill Jr - his wife Ilonka, Brad - his wife Jacqui and four grandkids - Trey, Blake, Lauren and Austin. Conveniently we all reside in the Houston area. We look forward to our family get-togethers in our Cottage at the Hollows.

Lynn Berryman purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Lynn Berryman chose Jonestown

The Texas Hill Country has always been a favorite place for the entire family. Both Bill Jr. and Brad are graduates of UT, and if they could have had their way they both would have made their permanent residence in the Hill Country near Austin. Bill Jr. discovered the Hollows, and it was he that pushed for a home-away-from-home in this upscale development. As you can see, reviewing this web site, it offers everything one would want to escape from the routine of every-day life.

What makes this cottage unique

If you decide to stay in the Hollows, consider these features of our Cottage that are not offered by the smaller three-bedroom villas: * Up to 50% more space for you, family and friends, * Seating for 8 around the dining room table plus 3 bar stools at the over-sized island, * 3 1/2 baths - 1 for each BR plus a half bath for guests on the first level, * Accommodations for 8 without the need to hassle with a sleeper sofa or trundle beds, * Dedicated work area with WiFi capability, * Gas-log fireplace for those chilly evenings, * Two-car detached garage - providing security and eliminating parking problems, * A wood-burning fire pit for roasting 'smores', etc. * Situated on 1.2 wooded acres, providing privacy and a venue for all outdoor activities.

Thinking of making this our yearly trip

  • 5 of 5

I will say first that the cabin is even better than pictured! Very homey, but large at the same time. We never felt crowded with 5 adults and 2 two-year-olds. The kitchen had all of the cooking tools we needed to eat in most nights. The grill worked well. The pool at the Hollows was freezing cold, but once you got used to it it was nice on a 90 plus degree day. You may need to do a little child-proofing if you have toddlers (we blocked the corners of the fireplace with a couple decorative pillows), and consider some sort of seating/dining option if you're planning on eating in. The dining chairs are too puffy for our strap on booster seats (not that we remembered to bring them) and cheerios were spilled frequently because the kiddos couldn't quite reach the table. Just minor inconveniences that were our fault, and that didn't impact the trip negatively. As important to me as the location and home is the quality of the hosting, and Lynn was amazing. When an issue came up she dealt with it right away--someone was there in less than an hour. A few general notes about the area for anyone who wants food advice. My husband is a big planner and mostly looked for restaurants in the Lago Vista and Jonestown areas (okay, we ate out more than I initially indicated), but we had mixed results. More Restaurant had great fish and chips but everything else was lacking. The donut place next door to More was very good, though they overcharged me. J&J's BBQ was fine, Latte Vista Cafe was good, but only has outdoor seating. Our favorite places were a little farther, in Cedar Park and Leander. We recommend Blue Corn Harvest, Farm to Fork, Mouton's, and Dig Pub. All really great food and the drives didn't feel bad at all. Oh, and our kids loved Hop and Happy, a bounce house entertainment center that's pretty much back in Austin (where we live) but definitely ended up being worth the drive. Overall, it was a great trip! We'd love for this to be the "lake house" our kids get used to and visit often! Thanks!

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It is beautiful and functional for 2 families with kids to share. The outdoor space was a blast for our kids to explore. The Hollows has so many amenities you don't even need to leave. Lynn was great to work with and provided so much great information for the area. We hope to stay here again!

Rustic Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend! The house was beautiful, very clean and well-kept. Lynn was a pleasure to work with. A few weeks after we booked out original dates, we realized there was a family conflict. I emailed Lynn to see if we could change the dates and she emailed back immediately that she would make it happen!

The Hollows pool is great for kids. Lots of shallow areas and smaller pools. The pool staff was very friendly and accommodating.

We rented a boat from VIP Marina (thanks to Lynn for the recommendation). VIP even picked us up at the marina in the Hollows to drop off the boat. They were a very friendly crew.

Thanks to all for an amazing weekend!

We stayed at the Berryman cottage for Memorial weekend- and seriously couldn't have asked for a better place! We had 3 adults and 4 kids and the space fit us perfectly. It was a slice of heaven inside and out! Thank you Berryman family!!! We are talking about coming next year already😊
