Hi! I am the owner of the property, Nina Beall, and I reside in the main house that is adjacent but completely private and separate from the Guesthouse Cabin. Please feel free to reach out to me to discuss potential discounts for larger groups, longer stays, pets, or special events! I'm always happy to help! I purchased this land in 1996 and oversaw the designing and building of the unique structures that make this property so interesting. I am a professional artist/painter, and my studio fills the first floor of the main house, where I create large colorful works collected by many private, corporate, and museum collections. Guests are invited to tour The Studio by simply arranging a bit ahead. For more information on my work there is lots of info, just ask! I'll be happy to refer to links, and I'm happy to coordinate PAINTING/DRAWING Workshops for my guests. If you are interested in Art Retreat Workshops with your stay, please reserve ahead! Learn to paint or draw! NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Grant Recipient. The Studio is just a short walk over to the Main House from the Guesthouse Cabin. Please feel free to inquire. Lots of fun! I purchased this old 'farmland' property in 1996, when I was drawn to the area and its quiet, peaceful environment, where I just knew nature would abound, flowers and landscape would blossom, and my creative energies would flow! I enjoy making The Guest house Cabin Retreat Special and memorable for my many and varied guests. Welcome Baskets; catering to Special Occasions; making Special picnic baskets, fridge stocking the fridge, are just a few of the ways that I enjoy making my guests feel welcome and pampered!
Nina purchased this Cabin in 1996
Why Nina chose Rob Roy On The Lake
This property is unique, in one of the most prestigious and upscale, yet interesting areas of the city! NOT a SUBDIVISION!~ONLY 7 MILES from Downtown Austin!~Tucked away on a private road that and with the expanse of "un lit" Emma Long City Park across the river, it makes for star gazing in clear skies!~ It was old farmland property, and sits with pride as part of an older, more peaceful way of life. It is because of this, that the Guesthouse is so special, secluded and away from the hustle bustle, yet near so many wonderful places to visit during your stay. There are many types of birds and other wildlife that frequent the property, and one has only to sit and listen to be reminded that one is truly in the country here.... But short drives to everything Austin and the Hill Country has to offer make it the "#IDEAL LOCATION!"
What makes this Cabin unique
GUESTS may "CUSTOMIZE" their stays w/ multiple choices of "Add Ons" to make it EXTRA Special! Upgrades include choice/s of: Specialty Baskets for: Arrival, Breakfast, Picnics, appetizers, or Spa Packages. Lists of items and details available upon booking. Art Retreat Workshops to learn or enjoy painting and/or drawing in the studio or grounds of the property are also easy to schedule with the property owner! As the landlord on the premises in the main house, I am almost always available to give you feedback or answer questions to make your stay more enjoyable! BUT otherwise, you will not be aware of my presence as I ALWAYS give guests total privacy!~There is a 'Concierge Book' for more details on things to do in the Austin Area, directions, brochures, favorite restaurants, and too many to name fun things to do in Austin, nearby. Several neighborhood parks with access to the Colorado River and hiking nature trails, fishing, swimming! We look forward to your visit.

Beautiful View & Delightful Host
My husband and I had a delightful stay for our anniversary (and his 40th). The cabin was immaculate and the property was so beautiful. The bed was comfortable and cabin was nicely decorated. The view from the cabin was very nice and I would highly recommend getting the spa package if you'd like something romantic at night. Nina was beyond accommodating and responded to all of my texts and messages promptly. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a nice getaway in a beautiful area. Thanks Nina!!
