About the property

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 Lake Travis

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.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Our two families rented "Berryman Cottage" for 4 nights. The home was perfect for the six of us. The home was extremely clean, very comfortable, and nicely decorated. Each of the three bedrooms had its own bath and there was even a 1/2 bath downstairs, just off the kitchen. We especially enjoyed the large back porch, the gas grill, and the lovely views from the back porch deck. The kitchen was well-equipped, and it was nice to have the use of a washer and dryer. Lynn was a delight. Her communication with me was prompt and efficient, and she provided us with clear and concise directions to the home with simple check-in instructions. We rented a pontoon boat from VIP Marina for a couple of days and enjoyed tubing and swimming on Lake Travis. The marina will send a boat for you and pick you up at North Shore Marina (the marina at the Hollows), saving you a 40 minute drive each way! We hope to return next year. Thanks for everything Lynn! Susan (Dallas, Texas)

This house was so beautiful and clean! We enjoyed coffee on the balcony every morning which offered a fantastic view. The beds were extremely comfortable and the entire house felt so cozy. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom which was a huge plus for us! Our only drawback was that the house felt hot during the day and night until around 4 am. It felt as if the air conditioner wasn't blowing. We are hot natured and had a hard time sleeping as it was so warm.

Lovely property. Was perfect for the 5 of us with plenty of room to spare.

Really nice little house with every thing we needed. I would have given it 5 of 5 stars except for a couple of maintenance issues that the owner has been made aware of and said she would look into them.

Relaxing Hill Country View

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very professional and responsive. Property was lovely and clean. Pool water was very cold during our early May trip, but facilities were excellent. Quiet isolated property. We didn't see anyone else during our stay except for when we went to the pool. If you plan to do any serious cooking, I recommend taking your own chopping knife and trusty utensils. Kitchen was fully stocked, but many utensils were worn (as expected from a rental property).

The Perfect Place to Rest and Rejuvenate

  • 5 of 5

If I could give the Cottage 10 stars, I would. We stayed over Spring Break 2017 and had a wonderful time. The cottage is immaculate and had an efficiency of space that made it feel much larger than it was. The beds were very comfortable and the whole property was very quiet. We enjoyed the trails the Hollows offers to run/walk on, and the hot tub at the beach club. As the pools were not heated it was too cold to swim but still a lovely place to sit in the sun. We rented kayaks/paddleboards through Viking rentals and paddled around the cove below the beach club.

The house has everything you would need to cook a full meal, and basics like salt,pepper and foil. I loved the clean refrigerator because I don't like to get to a rental and clean out someone's used mustard or old ice cream from the refrigerator. It also had plenty of towels, paper goods etc. We spent mornings and some lunches on the large deck. I cannot recommend the Cottage or the Hollows in general enough and we plan to make this an Austin regular.

One note: an elderly person might find the stairs down to the cottage difficult as they are steep
