About this listing

Enjoy the sunny outdoor deck, complete with a gas barbecue and seating for outdoor dining, perfect for an alfresco dining experience. Set aside some time to relax in the new 6 person spa, or take in the fresh country air while you explore Austin Creek or curl up with a good book while enjoying the sound of the creek's gurgling waters.
