This property was amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Rock House is a quaint little cabin with all of the amenities of home with an antique feel and an amazing view. You can see the lake but you are far from the hustle and bustle of town. There was lots of wildlife to watch on our morning hikes. Also the owners were very friendly and hospitable. It's great for a weekend getaway. We will definitely be back soon.

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a little slice of heaven. It is simply beautiful. The owners had music, movies, and books for guests to enjoy as well as drinks and basic essentials. The bed was small but only because we are used to a king. The owners obviously put some thought into their guests needs. We like to cook our own meals and didn't have to buy much in regards to seasoning or butter. We actually overpacked for this trip because of their thoughtfulness.

The front porch was my favorite spot in the rocking chair. The view of Lake Travis is beautiful. It's easy to fall asleep. Lol. I enjoyed reading while my husband attempted to master some of the yard games. The owners were gracious enough to give us their gate card to access the members only area of the Lake. The park was quiet and peaceful. It is the perfect place to bike or picnic. My husband got a little fishing in.

You can see as much or as little of the owners, Nelson and Ann make you feel welcome and as if you were never a stranger. This was a much needed vacation. Thank you Nelson and Ann for sharing your little slice of heaven with us. We'll be back soon.

Beautiful cabin with view of Lake Travis

  • 5 of 5

The Rock House was perfect for a quiet get away. We used it as base camp for daily outings and it was wonderful to come back every day to our own oasis. It was very well decorated!

Adorable little house!

Very well appointed and extremely clean. It was the perfect setting for a couple's getaway. The front porch was amazing spot to look out at the lake and enjoy the morning visits from the deer family!

Upon arrrival, we were greeted by a family of deer crossing the front of the house, it was an amazing sight. The cabin itself was very spacious and relacing for a couple. It was a very peaceful trip for a couple from a big city. Wish I would’ve stayed a couple of more nights.

More than expected and so peaceful.

Great way to disconnect from the stresses of life and reality. This weekend trip came at a time in our lives that we needed to reconnect and just sit on the front porch in silence and the Rock House did not disappoint us. We can not wait to return and enjoy the gorgeous view and calming relaxation of this cute little home. Highly recommend to any couple just needed to get away and enjoy each other’s company. Walked to a secluded little spot on the lake and enjoyed just laying under a big tree with a cool breeze. Thanks to our host Harold and Ann for building such a wonderful retreat and letting us come to enjoy it.
