About Lynda & Marq Jones
We have owned our lakefront estate since 1991 and have raised our children and pets here. Recently retired, we live here full-time so are on-site if you need any assistance.
Lynda & Marq Jones purchased this Guest House in 1991
Why Lynda & Marq Jones chose Illakee
Lake Austin Guesthouse sits in Happy Hollow, a private estate on the upper end of Lake Austin, near Lakeway. The scenic road to our property passes through two miles of the Balcones Canyonland Preserve. With great consideration we keep the grounds as organic and native as possible and maintain the house with green building materials and green cleaning products.
What makes this Guest House unique
Our gated property is unique and upon entry feels like you are stepping back in time, into an enchanted place. The entire estate is mostly shaded with large, hundred year-old live oak and pecan trees, native to Texas. The setting is semi-rural, private, yet two minutes away from all the amenities a guest could need. Our boat dock, with two boat slips, has a large deck above and one open slip for our guests. So bring your boat and enjoy the best stretch of water on Lake Austin.

Our family stayed at this lovely guest house last weekend and had a wonderful. The guest house is situated right next to the pool and has a beautiful view of the lake. Lynda and Marq were very accommodating and helpful. We hope to return soon!
Thank you for choosing us! We enjoyed your family and look forward to seeing you later this summer when the lake is a little warmer!!
The property was amazing!
Walking out onto the lawn and down to the boat dock was sublime. From the swing and adirondack chairs under the pecan tree where we had morning coffee with the view of the river to the perfectly situated pool and hot tub we enjoyed every bit of it. The kitchen had everything our family needed and we also enjoyed movies, games on the lawn, jumping off the second story of the boat dock and watching our dog play with the owners amazing bloodhound, Lady Bird. Marq and Lynda were the perfect hosts and we enjoyed the firepit and a glass of wine with them on our final night. Thank you for a great get away - we will be back!
Thank you so much for opening your home to my family! We had a great relaxing get away! Everything was perfect! Ladybird is so sweet!!! We will be back soon!
Such a great place . So relaxing with everything you need to have a wonderful time. Grocery store is quite close and the drive into downtown Austin is only 30 minutes. The owners are awesome hosts and the property is beautiful.
Beatiful and relaxing get away
This place is 5 star but, if I could give it more I would! Beautiful setting on the Colorado River, quiet and relaxing. Pool and hot tub are also nice to have right out your back door. Lynda and Marq are the nicest people and make you feel like this is your own home. Ladybird, Bonnie and Possum are fun to have around too :) We will be back next year :)
Beautiful views and great location!
Our family loved our stay at this beautiful property. It has amazing views.The place is clean and you can tell that the owners have thought about all the little details. The pool & putting green were great fun for all! We enjoyed the lake and use of the kayaks. Finally the location of this house is close to great restaurants and a new HEB. The owners were great at working with us due to hurricane issues in our home town and we really appreciated there flexibility with us.We would highly recommend this property.
