Wonderfully relaxing private cottage with lovely host

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Cottage by the creek and it was just as lovely as the last. Katheryn is a thoughtful host who takes care of everything, including fresh cut flowers for us! We brought the whole family this time. Two young boys just loved the wide open space and super comfortable couch. Katheryn has instructions for everything and we were relaxing within minutes of arriving. After unpacking we headed into the pool which was sparkling clean and just right for us. We had a lazy weekend, going out for some breakfast tacos, and otherwise used the small but well-stocked kitchenette to open and prepare our snacks. The boys slept great in the trundle bed; they switched which one got the floor bed! Our youngest declared that he was ready to move in permanently. In the mornings, the boys and I would go for a stroll in the quiet wooded area surrounding the cottage. Our oldest kept track; we counted 35 deer over our stay. As we left, both boys were sad and wanted to know when we could come back and stay again. This place is just the perfect getaway for us, so I'm sure it won't be too long before we're back.

Thank you Katheryn!

Owner's Response: So happy your family enjoyed their weekend get away! Your sons are so polite and Directions to Creek Side Cottage: Address is 2216 River Hills Rd. #A From the airport head west on Hwy 71. Take the right exit towards Capital of Texas Hwy (Loop 360). Take the Bee Caves Rd. exit (FM 2244). Travel west on Bee Caves Rd. past the light at Barton Creek Blvd. Turn right on River Hills Rd by the electrical sub-station. Travel 2 miles down River Hills Rd. Take the first drive way on your left after the low water crossing. Go back several hundred yards until the private drive splits. Take the left fork in the private drive down a steep hill. This fork in the drive is hard to see so go slow. House is tan stucco at the bottom of the hill. Creek side cottage is the smaller building on the left near the creek. Park in front of cottage in parking space provided. .
