Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Located approx. 4 miles from IH-35, Toll 130, SH 45, and Hwy 79, for super easy access to Austin, Georgetown, ABIA, Circuit of the Americas, and the hill country. On the 130 Toll, we are located 9.8 miles from Austin Executive Airport. On SH 45 we are 9 miles from the Howard Lane Metro Rail Station.

This family friendly newly updated 2 bedroom, 2 bath home sits on 1 acre at the end of a dead end gravel road. Enjoy a sense of peace and seclusion while being minutes from activities. The owners of this property live on the adjacent two acres.

This little cottage is conveniently located close to several grocery stores and restaurants as well as retail shopping at the Round Rock Outlet Mall, La Frontera, and Stonehill Center. Dell Diamond, home of the Round Rock Express AAA minor league affiliate of the Texas Rangers is a 5 minute drive away. Grab some BBQ at the Salt Lick, located next to the stadium after the game. During the baseball season Friday night fireworks can be seen from the house! Old Settlers Park where many youth soccer and baseball tournaments are held is located adjacent to the stadium property.

Historic downtown Round Rock is an easy 5-10 minute drive for access to unique and locally owned restaurants, bars, and live music venues.

Enjoy easy access from the house to 6 miles of the Brushy Creek Hike & Bike trail.

There is a pleasant mix of antiques, modern furniture & décor throughout the house, lending itself to a comfy and relaxing environment. Direct TV and a DVD, VHS player are in the living room along with many DVDs, books, coloring books (kids and adults), games, and puzzles for those times you want to hang out at the house and relax between your outings. There is also a TV in the dining area with local channels only. Wi Fi is provided.

The master bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed, comfy linens, and is decorated to reflect the feel of the southeast Texas coast where the owner grew up. The master bath has a walk in shower, no tub.

The second bedroom sleeps 2 with 2 twin beds and comfy linens. The decor reflects all things Texas and life on a cattle ranch. Hall bath has shower & tub.

We provide all linens and towels, bath soap and shampoo. Each bed has a mattress topper and there are ceiling fans in all rooms. The laundry room is stocked with laundry detergent, iron and ironing board.

The kitchen is well stocked with a microwave, dishwasher, oven, stove, toaster, blender, Keurig coffee maker as well as a 12 cup coffee maker for those times when one cup just isn't enough. There are pots & pans for cooking as well table settings, glasses and silverware.

The house is on well water. The water is filtered & softened and is fine to bathe in, drink and use for cooking. We know some are not used to the taste of well water so we will also provide up to 20 gallons of cooler water. The cooler water is refillable if staying for an extended period of time. At times you may notice a sulfuric smell that usually disperses quickly. It's hard to predict when/if that will happen but we tend to notice it more during extended periods with no rain.

Outdoors, relax on the back porch in any of our 3 rockers, enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening while watching the birds and rabbits that congregate by the feeder. We provide a charcoal grill as well as the charcoal and charcoal lighter. Play a round of croquet or game of corn hole!

There is a one car garage and plenty of parking for an RV or trailer on the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to thank you so much for our past months' stay. Your home was so fun and so comfortable. We enjoyed all the décor, the fun furniture (inside & outside), the kitchen with all the accessories, the TV's, the nice bed, lotions & soaps, BBQ, big yard & even croquet! We loved Round Rock & loved being near our daughter and her family. Thank you for making it all possible!

Quiet, convenient, very clean, cozy, just as pictured and described!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at this cottage! Everything was perfect, just as pictured and described! The beds were very comfortable and I am "bed snob". We have a king at home and my husband and I were so comfortable in this queen! Both of our daughters loved this place! The oldest liked it so much she said "I want a place like this when I get older!" The owners are fantastic and made sure we had everything we needed and were simply so kind! We just moved to the area and needed a place to stay until the moving truck arrived. Marilyn, the owner, knew we spent 2 days driving from FL and would be exhausted when we arrived. How lovely a surprise to find a bottle of wine upon entering the home! It was even my favorite, a cab! And she left us the famous Round Rock donuts which are just divine! If we ever have guests coming to town that we can't accommodate, I will be recommending my friends to stay here! Many thanks to Marilyn for her hospitality and kindness to us!

Look forward to staying here again.

The place is in perfect conditions just as posted. Marylin and Guy had all the attentions and we were welcomed with donuts and flowers which the kids loved.

Thank you again for everything.
