Our cozy, clean and comfy guest cottage is nestled in the giant live oak and elm on a quiet and private horse ranch northwest of Austin, in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. This getaway offer an opportunity to escape the city and immerse yourself in the park-like setting, with sounds of songbirds, and visits from the friendly deer and chickens. Located only minutes from restaurants and shopping! There is another Airbnb on site: The Casita.

The space
If you are ready to breathe again and regain a sense of peace, this is your space! It is unbelievably quiet, with no road noise at all...only the sounds of song birds, horses whinnying in the distance, crickets, and occasional coyote and the wind in the leaves.

The cottage itself is well insulated, with rustic decor, a comfortable king size bed with high thread count sheets, fluffy towels for after-showering, a desk for work with dedicated WI-fi, a small kitchenette including a crock pot, induction cooktop, coffee maker, tea pot, charcoal barbecue, fire pit, glassware, silverware and plates, plus a lovely deck to sit outside and enjoy the surroundings, plus a picnic table available for meals with friends.

The Cottage is thoroughly cleaned top to bottom between reservations, and the large outdoor space allows for privacy and social distancing. There are Adirondack chairs and an umbrella for reading your favorite book or simply enjoying the giant trees and songbirds.

A brand new dedicated Wi-Fi modem and router allow for staying connected!

Where you’ll be

Leander, Texas, United States

We live west of Leander, Texas on a quiet cul-de-sac in a neighborhood with 5+acre ranches so the homes are well-kept and the neighbors are friendly. We are minutes from shopping, restaurants and entertainment options. We are also only 10 minutes from Lake Travis access down the road in Jonestown. Our neighborhood is a quiet and beautiful oasis.

I have another Airbnb on site, The Casita. If the Cottage is booked, please search for the Casita. Travel together with friends!

I purchased Ponderosita Ranch in 1999. I am thrilled to share its amazing peace, quiet, privacy and sanctuary-like atmosphere with others. I love being a mom to my two children, managing this ranch, working in therapy teams to bring healing and hope to others, hiking in the mountains of Colorado, fly fishing, reading and enjoying good food and live music! I am a certified equine professional, specializing in relationship work with horses and humans, focusing on bringing attunement both to self and to others through allowing the horses to teach and guide us through re-connecting with personal power and instinct. Horses teach us so much about relationships, leadership, staying present in conflict, healthy boundaries, paying attention to non-verbal cues, tuning into whether we are present, how to control our emotions and not let them control us, learning that our emotions can be a state and not become a trait and how to value each member of the herd for their invaluable role. I love teaching people about horses and love seeing how they transform lives! To add an equine experience to your reservation just message me two weeks out to make a reservation. The discounted rate for my guests is $50 per person for an hour. I do not take guests on trail rides, just as a heads up to manage expectations. I can't wait for you to experience the quiet and beauty that surround you.
