PENNY RIVER RETREAT IS NEW
(built in 2014) and we aim to make it a Homaway Favorite, starting with a big savings you get by NOT having to purchase Renters Insurance OR Property Damage Insurance. That's a quick savings to you between $150-$200. Use it on yourself!
THEN KICK BACK
in one of our 3 comfy chaise lounges and take in the view and wildlife along the beautiful Colorado River. Mom, pop, kids, seniors, friends, all are welcome! And your cabin is 100% private. The owner lives on the property but in a unit that is gated and separated from your cabin. At night enjoy an Expansive view of the sky under a full moon and millions of stars you can only see anymore if you don't live in the 'burbs. BBQ on the patio. Kitchen with sliding glass widow allows through-food-service to a 15 x 15 deck for quick convenient serving and clean up. A Garden Room with overhead hanging baskets and 2 cushy high swiveling high chairs awaits you for morning coffee. A Bose radio with great sound is there for music or news or your favorite CD.
We can't emphasize enough the 9 glorious miles Penny River is from downtown, the noise, the bustle and the pollution, but if you must go there you are mere blocks from 2 major highways into town and 3 major arteries; one each connecting to south Austin, central Austin and north Austin.
Finally, fill your pipe with your favorite tobacco, your glass with your favorite wine and drift away under the quiet and peace of Penny River. Grab one of 3 available chaise lounges hanging on the fence near the palm on the far left of the year and take in the view from the high bank, the river, the wildlife and the occasional canoe, kyack drifting by. Rental of Penny River is certain go quickly even as new as the listing is, but if you miss it this go around be sure to catch it next time.
INSIDE THE CABIN:
Two large sofas are more than large enough to accommodate 2 additional bodies (kids) and you're welcome to throw down sleeping bags if still more room is needed. Please note that the sofas are not fold-out beds. Air mattresses are available upon 5 day advanced notice.
Some of our nature loving guests have been known to crash on the deck. The small cozy patio offers a solid Teak table and 4 matching chairs and the upper deck offers two 5-foot round tables and assorted chairs. Lots of shade and plenty of umbrellas to ward off this unbelievably hot Texas summer...
As noted under Amenities, if you absolutely must go into town you are just 2 blocks from Hwy 71 (also called Ben White Boulevard), 3 minutes from major arteries like Riverside (takes you in the dead center of town and directly to the UT football field, etc), while Hwy 183 will takes you to the north side of town. While you're in town, don't miss beautiful Zilker Park, which BTW abuts an amazing botanical garden.
The Penny River cabin is secured by a gated and locked entrance and a privacy fence on all sides. 2 cars park easily inside the premises but it's possible to squeeze in 4 (we've seen as many as 5 at Thanksgiving and Christmas).
As with any property we are subject to scheduled and sometimes unscheduled maintenance issues (lawn mowing, etc.). We will always advise you as much in advance of a scheduled maintenance as we can before coming onto the cabin area. Unscheduled maintenance emergencies may not allow us that same opportunity.
