Overview

Jonestown 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.

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 in the cottage for 2 night and we were 2 families. It was loads of Fun :)

Cottage has no neighbor on the left and other side there is one but we did not see anyone during our stay. Loved the outdoor fireplace , Big kitchen and kids loved the bunk room. It is facing wooded area and there is a lake on the behind the wooded area (I guess). However you can't see it or there is no trail to go there. We loved the view , serene environment it has to offer while we were there. We will come back !!

One of the top bedroom on the right was not throwing enough hot air instead we felt that it was cold air coming out of it. Nevertheless bed and blanket was excellent so we did not feel much about it.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting the property and we will definantly be back next year. We are usually attending the F1 races at Circuit of the Americas and enjoy being away from the busy Austin downtown. The rain was crazy but all we could do was laugh about it. At least we were able to wash and dry everything. The only problem we had was lighting the fireplace but it was no big deal. Thanks again for letting us share your home.
