I grew up in the Houston, Texas area and fell in love with Austin after spending my honeymoon here in 1961. We spent many weekends and vacations with our children on beautiful Lake Austin. We purchased our property in 1977 when Steiner Ranch was actually a working ranch. We have seen many changes through the years, but one thing has never changed...the beauty and peacefulness of our 'little piece of heaven'. Gardening is my hobby and our property is extra beautiful because I spend lots of time tending my gardens. I am truly blessed.
Sharon Stanley purchased this cottage in 1977
Although our property is now surrounded by the Steiner Ranch Community, we have remained very remote all these years. Our Cottage sits on 1.5 acres beside a beautiful 5 acre 'day use only' park. There is a nature preserve across from us and beside the park which makes our property a nature lovers dream. The beauty and wildlife must be experienced because it's difficult to describe with words.
Our location offers the smoothest water on Lake Austin for watersports, fishing, or just sit and enjoy it's breathtaking view. Because the south breeze blows the cool temperature of the lake toward our property, it truly is the 'coolest' place in Texas in the hot summertime.
I love to help others create special memories with friends and family which is exactly what happens everytime anyone visits. No one ever wants to leave...children and adults. There is something here for everyone to enjoy and remember.
My girlfriends and I had a relaxing time of fun and refreshment at Lake Austin Cottage! Sharon thought of everything to make our visit beyond enjoyable - even a plate of homemade cookies! The view was spectacular, accommodations were comfortable, and the cabin was full of special decorator touches. The property was handicap accessible for those of us who needed it. I wished my grandson could have come along to fish off the pier! Thank you, Sharon, for your warmth and hospitality. We had a wonderful time and consider you our new BFF as well!
Great hidden Lake Austin Cottage. Sharon and her son made our trip. They are very thoughtful and have created a place to make memories. Perfect place on the lake with a lot well thought out surprises . The kids had a blast jumping off the boat house. The location on the lake was perfect and the lights are beautiful at night. We enjoyed the full moon and fishing. Our friends said the next time we rent the home that they want to come back. Harry fixed a problem with my boat and was extremely helpful. Thanks you Sharon and Harry. We are very happy!!!!
We loved our stay! Phenomenal location on Lake Austin. The evenings are just gorgeous with strung lighting throughout the property. You only hear the crickets and fish jumping at night-just so serene!! The property has something for everyone and is geared so thoughtfully to families. We will be coming back and I would highly recommend this property for an awesome get-away!!
I have grown up going to Lake Austin. Now that we live in the Houston area, we have been searching for the perfect get away to enjoy the lake. This is it!! This is our second year to stay at Sharon's and it could not be more perfect. The new boat lift was perfect for our wakeboard boat. The new fishing pier was perfect for the boys. The dock with the slide, furniture, music, lights, everything....it was amazing! Perfect getaway and Sharon is just so amazing! The decor of the place to the cookies made for us! You will absolutely LOVE this lake retreat! We will be back again next year!
Thank you Sharon for everything!
We stayed for a suprise birthday party/ family getaway, and cannot say enough about this gem! This place is absolutely wonderful! Sharon puts so much love and care into the entire property and house, and you can tell from just entering the driveway. She has thought of everything! You will not be disappointed! We cannot wait to go back! Nothing but compliments & professionalism for Sharon, she's quick to respond & answer any/all questions!
The home and the property are perfect. Sharon was awesome a very welcoming to her home. She baked some cookies for us and even had a welcome sign with our name on it. It is perfect for a family getaway or a gather for friends and family. We celebrated my 39 th birthday and it was perfect. Lots of cool decorations in and around the home. The double deck is perfect for parties and to hangout during the day. They thought they of everything. There is a great sound system, out door kitchen, 2 mini fridges and a ton of tables out on the deck. The water slide was awesome from the top of the deck and the fishing is also great. Sharon even sprayed for mosquitos; which was awesome. Last but not least the outdoor shower is awesome. I would recommend this home to anyone.
We are located in the Steiner Ranch area of the Austin hill country very close to Lake Austin Spa and the UT Golf Course. Water sport rentals, restaurants, spas and the Hill Country Galleria shopping mall are all very close. And the Oasis Restaurant (Sunset Capital of Texas) is only 10 minutes away for you and your group to experience.
