vacation rental description

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.

traveler reviews for this lake travis estate rental

Wonderful H ouse for Family Gathering.

Review submitted: March 15, 2014   Date of arrival: June 20, 2013

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.

Creek Side House

Review submitted: December 11, 2013   Date of arrival: November 27, 2013

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

Review submitted: October 13, 2013   Date of arrival: October 11, 2013

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.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, girls getaway, sight seeing
