Gather your group and head out to Pedernales River Cabin. Two night minimum March / September. Awesome unique property just steps (rock steps from the patio to the water.) We now have a swim/fishing dock and 5 kayaks for guest to use plus dish network and wifi is now available. Inquire for rates for parties and events. Pets are allowed but there will be an additional fee.

The space

Fantastic multi level river cabin that sleeps up to 12 people in a very Eclectic "Keep Austin Weird" styled lakehouse. Perfect for large family gatherings, birthday celebrations, bachelor/ette parties. Enjoy the huge fire pit, Tiki bar, bbq pit, and now we have 5 kayaks for guest to use. Very secluded end of the street location. Street view photo is not accurate here on Air B N B.. Lake Travis water level is now back up. "We"re not fancy but we are fun" Please note that this Cabin has been here since the late 60's so if you are looking for the Crown Plaza keep looking but if you are looking for a location and place to have an awesome time with family/friends just steps to the water this is it.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house but both boat docks one on the left and one on the right are off limits (they belong to the neighbors). Water access is available just down the steps from the patio or down the path near the entrance. The rv/patio at the entrance is not part of the rental (neighbors as well)..

Interaction with guests

This is a turn key rental. All you need is your own groceries and toiletries. I will not be on the property but i will be available to answer any questions.

Other things to note

The covered boat docks and the small cabin/patio/rv at the entrance are not included in the rental. We do have 5 kayaks for registered guest to use. We also have water and electrical hookups for an additional rv for an additional charge.

Was disappointed to find that the owner seemed to have let the place go a bit since I booked it about 6 months ago. When I booked my stay, the reviews were mostly positive and described a quirky vintage party house. When I checked back after my stay, the reviews had clearly taken a turn for the worse, which aligned with my experience. Basic upkeep just wasn't happening - floors and bathrooms were very dirty. None of the lights worked. Most alarming - the front door doesn't lock. I mean it does, but you can still open it with a soft hip bump. Our entire group agreed this place had awesome potential, and were disappointed that the owner wasn't taking good care of such an awesome treasure.

As some people have mentioned this place is a bit below average. It's by no means a clean place. I know he said he got a new cleaning company, but this place was not clean at all. We had a dead cockroach in one our rooms, saw one cockroach in the living room and a few huge spiders in the house, a line of ants and very uncleaned dishes with ants in them as well, one of the fridges had a horrible odor, shower was leaking. If you looked behind places we saw cob webs and dust bunnies as well. The house is definitely in need of a renovation. Two of my friends looked to have gotten bed bug bites as well. This place is a bit over priced for what you're getting. Steve is great with responding which is a positive. He had kayaks which was fun. However that was really the only thing good about this.

The location was awesome. We made good use of the kayaks and spend a lot of time in the water. The cabin was as expected from what we read in the reviews, however, it was great for a group of college students getting together to have a good time. It was spacious and there were many fun activities there to do. The only small issue was there not being any hot water in both showers, but other than that we had a great time.

Just as described. Great place overlooking the lake. Plenty of space to hang around in the shaded area outside on the deck. Had a great time and would highly recommend for a weekend of fun.

If you are looking for a fresh and clean place to stay, this is not it. But, if you are looking for a secluded and quiet place with charm and character, this is the place for you! I was not disappointed by the lack of cleanliness because previous reviews had prepared us. We took advantage of the kayaks provided and had a great time on the water. The house has an eclectic and whimsical charm with the decor and layout. The beds were comfortable and appeared to be clean. The toilets were clean and the main refrigerator was also clean. The main shower was clean, but the shower in the back definitely needs some attention. There are lots of lights strung through the house and outside but most didn't work. Lots of outdoor seating and plenty of shade. Do not take young kids. The description from the owner does state it is not kid friendly and he is right! The water access from the property is steep and the dock is not great for swimming. However, the secluded property was perfect for the kids to run around and play. We did a lot fishing off the dock and the kids caught plenty of small fish. If there was a thorough cleaning and a few repairs we would consider staying again. The owner was very responsive to any messages we sent.

Response from Steven:
Hi Amy: I have been using a new cleaning service for the past month because i have been out of town and you and i were not the only ones to notice the lack of cleanliness. (i'm back now and will insure the cabin is clean). As for the lights (yes they do work but previous guest had them unplugged). Yes this cabin has been here since the 1960's and with that some issues do come up but it is one of only a few places that are that close to the water for people to enjoy.

The house overall would've been great for a college getaway. Issues we had we're that it was out of date and when it rained it leaked everywhere. One of the rooms was unusable because of the rain and damage. Space is great as it's huge and will fit a lot. The outdoor area was awesome. If the house got a little TLC it could be something super special.
