Hill Country Home On 95 Acres With Beautiful Creek And Trails

Hill Country Home On 95 Acres With Beautiful Creek And Trails


Property Details

Updated: Apr 15, 2015
5 bedrooms, 3 baths, double garage, sleeps 12-14, parking for boat trailer

CreekSide House is on a picturesque 95 Acre Property with a spring-fed Creek that feeds into the Pedernales River a short stroll away. Just across the creek is a large covered pavilion that makes a great picnic area. Due to the drought, there are few public access boat ramps on Lake Travis, but there is wading in the river. 95 Acres of open space are available for you to meander on the cedar chip-lined trails, including Woodlands and Meadow areas. This is a great spot for Bird Watching, Hiking, or just Relaxing.

Indoors: The CreekSide home was completely renovated in 2009 creating a spacious Great Room adjacent to a Large Kitchen with all New Appliances, Granite Top Counters, and Satillo tile floors. There are also small appliances, such as a Microwave Oven, Coffee Maker, Toaster Oven, Blender, and George Foreman Grill. The Dining Table seats up to 12 people. Upstairs, is a unique Africa motif Bedroom and Bathroom that opens out onto an Outdoor Deck which looks down to the creek.

Free Cable TV and WiFi Internet are both available.

Outside: At the front of the house is a large rock-surfaced porch. The back porch is a great place to relax in the porch swing or fix BBQ on the grill.

Our guests enjoy relaxing on the porch, hiking the walking trails, and visiting nearby attractions. There are a number of vineyards in the area that welcome guests for wine tastings or just browsing. There are also nearby adventure experiences, from ziplining at Cedar Creek Canopy Tours to going swimming in natural pools such as Hamilton's Pool or Krause Springs.

You are only 45 minutes from downtown Austin, with attractions such as Austin City Limits, Sixth Street, South by Southwest, Travis County Expo Center, and the latest F-1 track - the Circuit of the Americas just beyond downtown.

Wonderful H ouse for Family Gathering.

  • 5 of 5
We needed a last minute vacation rental to house our family "camping trip" because some of our "littles" had been ill and could not risk the heat camping in tents.
The owner went above and beyond normal courtesy to make sure the the house was available in time for our arrival.
Tammie was the caretaker on site that greeted us and provided us with the little things that made our visit comfortable.
The house was spacious with plenty of sleeping space and the kitchen was large enough for group cooking and gathering. We have nine "littles" in our multi-family gathering and there was plenty acreage with property for them to ride their bikes, explore the historical sites, build a "tent-fort", water balloon games, and picnic. We also took a day trip for them to swim at one of the local springs.
Thank you for the extra care you provided for our group . We had a wonderful stay and hope to visit again.

We had a wonderful annual family vacation. The house was very well equipped and the caretakers were very attentive. They filled our every request. The 11 of us had plenty of room in the house and enjoyed rooming the 95 acres and all the trails.

sisters outing

  • 5 of 5
This was my families first sisters and daughters outing. We had a blast. The house is amazing, plenty of room for 10 females. We loved the walking trails. We spent a lot of time just sitting on the back patio telling stories and with the river just a few feet away it was very peaceful. Tammie was very helpful and friendly. We zip lined at Canopy Tours. Highly recommend them, it was amazing. Will defently consider renting this house again if we are back down this way.

Property was everything it was advertised to be. David and Tammy the property managers were there if anything was needed and were very attentive. Home was extremely comfortable, clean and well decorated. The 95 acres was a plus especially having younger children there. They loved exploring and hiking around. Having so much open space to look at and wander around was a definite plus. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone heading down Austin way.

From the Owner

The creek was what grabbed us and made us say, 'This is where we want to be!' Central Texas was in a drought at the time and this was the only property that we looked at the actually had running water on it. In spite of the current drought our creek has continued to run while the River has dried up and Lake Travis continues to drop. As a result, there is still plenty of wildlife to be observed if you care to take the time.

We have opened up multiple cedar chip lined trails through the wooded areas of the property and have made pathways in the large meadow area for a varied, picturesque pathway through the property.
