Weekend Couple Escape
My wife and I decided to go to the Texas Hill Country for a couple of days and wanted a quiet place to act as “home base” near Austin with easy access to Wimberley, Gruene, San Marcos etc. We settled on this creek side cottage after looking at the pictures on vrbo and it did not disappoint. You wind off of Bee Caves road which is pretty busy and think this will be a suburb or housing development. Not the case! What we found felt pretty secluded. The house is perched on a hillside next to a main house over looking a stream. The place is has a back wall of windows looking down on the creek and we enjoyed watching the deer, egrets and other wildlife in the mornings and at dusk. Even saw a coyote come down for a drink when We opened the windows in the morning to listen to the creek.
The place itself is well appointed. An office- another small room with a daybed, Small but sufficient bathroom and a great room that has a queen bed/seating area/ kitchenette.
The place was quiet clean and well maintained/decorated. The owner Katheryn was communicative and made it all very easy. All and all a great location as it lets you easily slip into Austin and out to the hill country without coming anywhere near I-35. Would recommend for a couple or posibly a family of 3-4 looking for a quiet alternative to a hotel room.
Thank you Russell. In all the years I have been renting out the cottage, it has never been left in such perfect condition! Thank you for being the perfect guests! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and please come back again. Katheryn
A Lovely Place
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Creek Side Cottage! It is a beautiful, quiet oasis in the Hill Country of Austin, with no buildings or roads in sight. We enjoyed the serenity and comfort of the cottage, including access to the scenic deck and the pool.
Restaurants and a major shopping center are only about fifteen minutes away and the many attractions of the city are within 30 minutes.
We had our breakfast at the cottage every day and appreciated Katheryn supplying coffee, sugar, and other supplies.
We will definitely return for another stay.
The perfect getaway!
My wife and I stayed here for our 38th wedding anniversary. Katherine could not have been more welcoming and is the perfect host. The property is beautiful. Thanks for everything!
Dreamy, hidden treasure!
What a gem!!! I will definitely come back! Katheryn is so helpful and a total delight. The location is beyond anything I imagined. Just perfect!
Thank you Kimberly! I loved meeting you and truly hope you return for another visit soon!
Perfect weekend getaway!
If you need to refresh & reset...this place is for you! Tucked away in the hills of Austin-far away from “reality” but close enough to restaurants, food trucks (Backdraft pizzeria & waffles on weekend), & HEB. We enjoyed daily hikes & investigating the creek below! Seeing deer out my window never got old! Katheryn was extremely responsive & had the cabin ready & waiting for our arrival! Can’t wait to go back!
This place is perfect! Very clean, modern and chic but nestled in the woods to be one with nature.
We had an absolute great time! The location was great as it was centrally located for all we wanted. Played 5 great golf courses all within 30 minutes. Same short drive to downtown and the airport. The place itself is fantastic! Clean, spacious, modern and comfortable. The surroundings were more than we imagined. Tucked away in the woods overlooking a creek with roaming deer. We enjoyed short hikes around the area and just sitting quietly in the trees. The adjacent deck and pool area were great for our night of entertaining and dining on take out barbecue from the very close by County Line BBQ . (Great views from there too). We loved our host Katheryn accepting our invitation to join us all. Speaking of our host, WOW. She really knows how to do this. Not only is the place perfectly designed and furnished, things like water, coffee, cream, sugar, sweeteners, snacks and even beer and wine were right there when we arrived. She was available if needed but we never did. She is charming, gracious, witty and fun. Truly a class act. We were in Austin to celebrate my wife’s 60th birthday. She did not want to leave. I know she will always remember this wonderful place. She said as we got on the airplane to come home to the rat race of Southern California, “ I want to come back here. I want to bring my dog Sonnyboy. I think Katheryn and I could become great friends. I like her and I loved her place in the woods”. I loved it too!!! If you are looking for a conveniently located, peaceful, tranquil, super comfortable place with the only neighbor being our great host, come visit this Creekside Cottage! Thanks Katheryn, hope to see you soon.
Thank you Tom and Claudia! It was a pleasure hosting you in the Creekside Cottage. Thank you for being the perfect guests. You left the cottage in mint condition! It was great getting to know you and sharing your BBQ dinner on the deck. Let's become even better acquainted in the future. I want you to come back soon!
