Clean and Well-Situated for Great Times

  • 5 of 5

I had several opportunities to email with Vicki as I was booking. She was always very quick to respond and did all she could to accommodate us.

The cabin is very clean and has plenty of space. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped. I liked that there was a full-sized washer and dryer there; we went home with clean clothes to unpack instead of going home with a tangle of lake-wet bathing suits. It rained one day we were there, but we actually sat on the the deep porch and enjoyed the sight while we played cards.

The dog fence came in handy for us, and again, Vicki was accomodating about us bringing our furbabies.

The home was well-situated, close to the resident's park and boat launch. The neighbors buzzed around on their golf carts and were very friendly to us. We loved feeding the deer apples and carrots off the porch. The pictures of us hand-feeding the deer made for great Facebook posts!

I would recommend this location to anyone who wants to visit Lake Travis for a vacation. It gave us a place to stay for a fun time away from home.

Homey cabin next to the lake

  • 4 of 5

Three friends and I headed out to the cabin for an extended weekend of gaming. The location is nice, right next to the lake, but we spent the majority of the time inside and felt right at home. There are two queen beds and a spare mattress, which was able to accommodate our sleeping and we cooked several meals in the kitchen, which has all the necessary utensils, pots, pans, etc. Bathrooms and kitchen are nicely renovated and everything was clean and ready for our stay. The overall process was a breeze and Vicki was great to work with. She provided detailed and accurate instructions for the stay and we were all able to get to and in the cabin quickly. Vicki also processed our deposit refund immediately after the stay. If you're looking for cabin near the lake with the comforts of home then I highly recommend this cabin and we'll certainly be looking to stay there again next year.

Second stay at cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here. We stayed at the same time last year. We loved it just as much as we did the first time. This place has everything you need and they even upgraded the TV to a flat screen since our last stay.

We really love the area and the proximity to the lake, the large front porch and all the deer in the area.

The house was very clean and well maintained. The owner was very friendly and provider great customer service. She replied to my e-mails very quickly and even let us check in a little early.

Thanks for another great stay!!!

This is a great place to stay and we hope to return again next year.

Like staying in our cabin in Maine.

  • 5 of 5

Why I chose this cabin: one level, no stairs to enter. Covered parking in back for 2 cars. Making easy access to unload car and get into cabin. Has modern amenities...liked having a washer dryer to clean from lake swimming. Club house for community was nice for large gaitherings and pool and public lake. Back to nature feel with deer visiting every day. Big bedrooms and lots of mirrors. Owner had quick responses to any questions we had. And fenced in area for pets outside. And security gate for small children on porch.

Excellent location, great cabin, everything you ne

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has everything you need for a wonderful stay. The house is very close to the lake and the community has a great park and other amenities such as a pool and restaurant near the boat dock. As an added treat we had a large number of deer visit the house every evening, they love baby carrots so don't forget to bring some along.
