Cozy, relaxing cottage on 1 acre in Round Rock

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,200 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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!

This was our first time using VRBO and it set the bar high. Everything was perfect. The home was spotless, decorated nicely, and not a detail was missed. The home is in a country setting in the city, the best of both worlds. Although the owners on the attached property the gave us privacy but were very attentive if needed. Highly recommended.

Warmly welcomed by the owners/neighbors, we were delighted with everything about "Granny's" house. The home was perfect for our comings and goings. Outstanding.

Loved this house!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect! The owners provide extra TLC and the location was amazing. It provides privacy with a quiet comfortable cozy atmosphere and yet you are literally five minutes from food, shopping and 15 minutes from anything. We had such a nice stay at this house that we actually spent more time there than we had anticipated. Can't say enough positives and will definitely stay there again anytime in the Austin area. 100% satisfied!

Cozy and relaxing is a great way to describe this home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Right away we were impressed with Granny's home. We arrived later than expected and were greeted with special treats on the counter! It was great to read about the history of the home and get a an idea of who Granny was. Guy and Marilyn respected our privacy while being readily available when our plans changed unexpectedly. We can't say enough about how wonderful it was to stay here. If we visit Austin again we wold love to stay here again.

Excellent place for two couples

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed out stay in the Round Rock house. It is a comfortable, clean home, exactly as described on the website. It has an away-from-it-all feel, even though it is in the city and close to everything. We had a great time in the area with so much to see and do. We had one small problem with the Kuerig coffee maker. Marilyn got it fixed in a matter of hours and in the meantime supplied us with coffee and filter for the regular coffee maker. We recommend this home highly.
