Great space, nice views.
This place was really nice.
We had a great experience.
This cottage was the perfect get away for a few days. We started our honeymoon here and could not have picked a more relaxing and beautiful place. The House was perfect and we especially enjoyed the outdoor grill and eating area. We highly recommend this house for a relaxing retreat.
We are so glad you chose the Cottage to begin your new life together and we wish you many years of happiness and prosperity. Please come back again anytime.
Janice & Peter
As we made our way down the winding drive, we came across a family of deer grazing. The fire pit by the creek was amazing with the smell of burning mesquite. Morning coffee on the porch presented roll call of many birds which was the only thing interrupting the silence. The next night as we enjoyed dinner outside, our dinner conversations did not seem to interrupt the evening grazing of the family of deer. There was a mysterious lack of mosquitoes (not a single one), which makes for a pleasant time for a family with sweet blood. The cottage was well appointed including soft close cabinets, stainless appliances, granite counters, Calphalon cookware, William Sonoma dishes/mixing bowls, rain head shower, Hunter ceiling fans and luxurious linens. Wifi was adequate for family of four (including 2 teenagers). Approximately 15-20 minutes into Dripping Springs for grocery store and it was about 40-50 min drive to Zilker Park or downtown Austin on the ONE day that we drove into the city.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We love sharing our little slice of heaven with others! Please come back anytime!!
Warmly Janice and Peter
Our family loved The Cottage by the Creek. Quite, clean, lovely grounds, friendly wild-life. We miss the fox already.
So glad you enjoyed your stay, Kelly!! Mr Fox is quite the celebrity at The Cottage By The Creek!!! Please come back anytime!!
Once you make the turn down our winding private drive I doubt you will want to leave. But, if you do feel like exploring the beautiful hill country, our cottage is just fifteen minutes northwest of downtown Dripping Springs and is conveniently located near numerous wedding venues, wineries and breweries. Pedernales Fall State Park is only 15 short minutes away. Historic towns such as Johnson City, Fredricksburg, Luckenback, and Gruene are an easy drive, as well as the cities of Austin and San Antonio if you care to venture out.
