****Lake Travis is not a constant level lake. As such, the water in our cove fluctuates and may be lower or higher than what the pictures show. It is very scenic out here regardless of the lake level but if direct water access is a priority for you, please inquire about current water level in our cove prior to booking. Refunds will be issued in accordance with cancellation policy if you decide to book. Pace Bend Park which is just 10 minutes away is a great place for water activities. Please see photo captions for dates.****
Enjoy the peace and serenity of the hill country from this cozy cottage. When water levels permit, the property has direct and easy access to the lake and a private dock ideal for fishing or swimming. Enjoy your morning coffee and evening wine on the deck as the hawks soar - it's a beautiful sight. Have a beer as you fish from the dock and watch the fish jump in the water. The kids will love playing in our little cove! You'll spot deer roaming around the neighborhood every day and occasionally in the yard!
The house is slowly being renovated so you'll find some things old and new. It's a great space to enjoy the lake, explore the Hill Country, then cuddle up with the family and get a restful night's sleep. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms and an additional sofa bed.
Bedroom 1: King Bed
Bedroom 2: Queen bed and ensuite bathroom
Bedroom 3: Full Bed
Common Area: Sofa Bed
Many of the folks in our neighborhood have been around for 30+ years. It's a one of a kind place. People are friendly and look out for one another. We don't have a fence but we ask that you stay on our property and respect our neighbors. Aside from that, it's all about the country and lake life out here! Easy living!
We are out in the country, past the city limit signs! You'll be living among some of Texas' most diverse wildlife but with that comes critters and bugs. We try to keep them out of the house as much as possible but do expect to see some critters around (crickets, millipedes, scorpions, snakes, lizards, etc.).
NO WIFI - a great opportunity to UNPLUG and enjoy Texas' natural landscape! But if you need internet, there are several coffee shops in nearby Bee Cave and Lakeway (15-20 min drive).
