About Monta Kennady

Home currently owned by 3 siblings who grew up coming to the Austin Lake House on a regular basis. We have now raised our own kids with regular visits - It never gets old!!

Monta Kennady purchased this house in 1949

Why Monta Kennady chose Sleepy Hollow

Our grandfather, who was comptroller for Texas Parks and Wildlife, bought the property in the 40's, knowing that a Federal Wildlife Preserve was directly across the lake. He and my father built the origional home in the early 50's. The house has been expanded twice and recently updated for comfort and convenience.

What makes this house unique

We love our family lake house and want to share it with you. We have had many family holidays and events on this picturesque property.The front lawn is expansive and has seen volleyball, frisbee, softball, and flag football games. The layout of sunporch and patio are conducive to outdoor BBQs and outdoor living. Two different sitting area with cable TV and DVD players allow 2 separate groups (kids/adults) to do their 'own thing'. Rooms are spread out so noise and privacy usually not an issue.

comfy house and great location

  • 5 of 5

My grand children really enjoyed swimming in the lake and playing on the 'floating' island. We also enjoyed the kayaks and hammock. Everything at the house was just as you said it would be and we felt right at home; it was very comfortable and met our needs completely. It was a great getaway; even though it rained some, we still had a great time. We will be returning next year. Thanks for sharing this little piece of heaven with us!

Very relaxing weekend. Great location. Kept the teenagers busy.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights June, 2017. We came for a family reunion with ages 2 to 80+. Just a couple of tiny steps so everyone could get to downstairs bathroom, bedrooms, living areas and the shore with little trouble. Teenagers spent hours fishing, kayaking, swimming, hitting golf balls and floating on the water mat. House is very basic but just fine for us. We did encounter a large snake in screened in porch, but we had left door open.

Lovely cottage on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a mini reunion at this cottage on beautiful Lake Austin. It was much more a cottage than a home but it was perfect for our family. We had a wonderful time kayaking on the lake. The views and location are wonderful. I would definitely recommend this property to someone who doesn't need luxury and enjoys together time with family and friends. It was obvious that pets are welcome so it might not be a great place for someone with severe allergies.

Family of Sons Weekend Fun.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend vacation at this home. They accommodated us with our every request.

Our family played horseshoe, frisbee target, golf tee practice, while the children scampered about the yard playing with toys. We rented a boat and the dock was perfect.

Sunsets on the floating dock were memorable. Evenings around the fire were perfect.

The long weekend was too fast.
