This unique one of a kind 1940's era cottage oozes with charm and sophistication. It has been completely updated inside and out for one purpose; to be the perfect vacation home. Whether you're looking for an active vacation or a relaxing one you'll want to stay here. For the active set, you can launch your boat next door at the Sail and Ski Yacht Club (when lake levels permit) or rent a boat or other fun toys at Just for Fun at Emerald Point Marina which is only 10 minutes away. For the party set, our Austin themed backyard is perfect for intimate celebrations. Whether is a birthday, anniversary, or even a wedding, our backyard offers a live music stage, dance floor, picnic tables and a bar all in an eclectic, authentically Austin theme!
For the easy going set, you can just relax and take in the beautiful Texas sunsets from our front deck or stroll next door to Sundancer Grill for a margarita on their water front deck. Location, location, location. You're away from it all yet close to everything on the West side. You're only 30 minutes from downtown Austin and its live music and entertainment scene. Great dining choices are only a few minutes away and shopping and movie theaters are about 10 minutes away at the trendy new Hill Country Galleria. We also provide access to Mansfield Dam Park, The Lakeway Swim Center, and Emma Long Park. For more information see our website for the (email hidden).

Charming cottage close to the lake. Nice grill restaurant just a short walk down the road if you don't want to drive or cook. Unfortunately the lake was quite low when we visited.
We had a great time staying at the cottage. I was clean, well maintained, and as described. The decor was artistic and fun. The A/C did well for August in the Texas heat.

We’re a nice, fun loving, down to earth couple who split our time between Newport Beach, California and Austin, Texas. We’re two self-employed professionals who work from home and appreciate the flexibility that it offers. We love the great outdoors and enjoy most outdoor activities including camping and hiking in our state and national parks. Whenever possible, we love to travel and explore interesting places, as well as meeting interesting people which is the main reason we’ve decided to join Airbnb. If we’re going to take advantage of being guests of others, we might as well return the favor and host other hosts since we can. It’s also easy to do since we live in an amazing location and our home is both pet-free and children-free and has a beautiful guest room.
