Brooks Hollow Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Unique Waterfront Resort with 4 Units, Sleeps 12+

Lake Travis Cabin Rentals is a historic fishing camp from the 1960's located on the south shore of Lake Travis near Lakeway, TX. Retaining the feel and charm of the 1960's the three colorful buildings house 4 private units with covered and screened porches taking you back in time. The property is on the main body of Lake Travis, so there is always lake access even in the harshest of drought conditions. The main house has one bedroom with a king bed, one bath, living, dining and kitchen with a full futon sofa and twin day bed in the large living area. This house has a very large upper entertainment area with 10' x 4' dining table, TV, multiple tables and chairs, futon, covered porch and 2 bars (up and down). A BBQ area (gas and charcoal), plus a covered pavilion for dining and relaxing, and two oversized picnic tables and hammocks are in the common areas. The coral cabin has one bed (king), bath, kitchenette, and a full futon in the living area and a covered porch. The upper yellow cabin has one bed (king), bath, kitchenette, and a full futon and twin day bed in the living area. It also has a screened porch with table and chairs and full futon (weather permitting on the screened porch). The lower yellow cabin has two queen beds, kitchenette and bath and a screened porch with table and chairs. All units have microwave ovens and under-counter refrigerators - the main house has 3 full sized refrigerators (one with ice maker) and a stove with oven. Fully stocked with pots/pans/dishes/toaster/utensils, etc. There is also a laundry room with washer/dryer. Each unit has a hair dryer, iron and ironing board, soap, shampoo and conditioner, toilet paper and paper towels. There are dishes and linens (sheets, towels) in each unit. A small pool with a covered shade pavilion, and a small boat dock complete the lake front resort compound. Standard cable TV and wireless internet throughout the compound. Well behaved pets are welcome to join you on your vacation retreat to Lake Travis Cabin Rentals.

About Rhonda West

We love the water - have lived in Galveston, Honolulu, Poipu, Kauai, Costa Rica, and Mexico. We have lived in Austin for over 20 years and enjoy the energy, intelligence, and creativity of people in this area. There is always something interesting going on - and more live music than imaginable for one city.

Rhonda West purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Rhonda West chose Austin

We moved to Austin in 1993 from Honolulu, Hawaii and sold our home on Kauai in 1997. When we found this lake property in 1998 we felt like we could create a little bit of Hawaii in Austin. With over 500 feet of waterfront, this property has fabulous water access and views. Bright colors, multiple hammocks, and comfortable surroundings make this property very inviting and relaxing.

What makes this cabin unique

2 acres of waterfront on Lake Travis. The compound is a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life. Each unit provides privacy and a retreat, but the amenities of the compound have many areas for everyone to gather and enjoy each others company. There's no other place like this on Lake Travis.

Lake Travis Waterfront Resort Compound-Perfect For Family Reunions!

Great stay for 3 families. Plenty of room and tons of character.

  • 5 of 5

Great stay overall. Rooms and cabins are spacious and outdoor area is huge. Only small complaint were the small bugs in the bathroom & kitchen area of yellow cabin. Somewhat expected being right on lake but didn't notice it as bad in the other cabins. Will definitely be coming back.

Great place for a get together!

  • 5 of 5

A group of co-workers and myself stayed at the "compound" as we called it for some team building and relaxation. It was the perfect location. Right on the lake, places to BBQ and gather, an awesome great room to watch some football, the list goes on and on. Plenty of room for the 8 folks that were there. We highly recommend it and look forward to future visits.

Absolutely Perfect for Our Group

  • 5 of 5

This property met and exceeded our expections. The pictures do not do it justice, as the grounds are larger than they appear in the photos. We had 13 guys all travelling from out of town for a boys weekend in Austin. Rhonda was awesome to work with, with prompt responses to my questions, excellent service on the house (the AC was on and down to temp when we arrived), and plenty of patience for a group our size. I would not hesitate to recommend this property, or stay here if I find myself in Austin again.

Outstanding!! Will definitely be back!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you guys very much! You made everything so easy. Beautiful property right on the lake! It's a bit older, but very comfortable. It's almost like its own compound, and that was very nice. Just shut the gates and all the privacy in the world. Centrally located close to restaurants and marinas on the lake. A 5 minute boat ride either direction and you're there. Highly recommend this property!

There isn't a better location on Lake Travis! We held our small-ish class reunion here and it could not have been more perfect. The view is unparalleled. The facilities are homey and user-friendly. Pool and lake were perfect and easy access. Everyone that stayed in the cabins were comfortable and happy. Bars upstairs and downstairs are convenient and fully stocked. Kitchen in the main cabin was easy to use. The dining table on 2nd floor and game room were very well used.

I highly recommend for large groups, family-style sleeping arrangements, casual get-togethers, and for anyone that likes to grill and be outdoors!

Thanks to Butch & Rhonda for being excellent hosts!

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

To be honest, I'm a bit biased. We've spent quite a bit of time at this property. With that said, the property, on this stay, was over and above our expectations. Some fabulous updates have been made. We have already recommended it to others and will reserve it again.
