Beautiful and comfortable natural stone house with great views of the scenic Texas Hill Country from multi-level decks and private dock on peaceful Council Creek cove of Lake Buchanan.
***THERE IS NO TV OR INTERNET****

The space
This warm and inviting 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, one-story home features a Master bedroom with great views of the trees and lake, and a sliding glass door to the expansive decks. The living room features wood floors and a beautiful wood-burning rock fireplace. The open, island kitchen has all the necessary amenities, and the dining table has picture window views of the bird feeder, trees and lake beyond.

The multi-level decks offer great views of the lake and wildlife during the day, and awesome celestial gazing at night. A large gas grill is available to cook meals, as well as a chiminea where you and your friends can cozy up with your favorite beverages during cooler times. Walk down the scenic rock path to the lake and take a dip, cast a line, or just relax on the private dock. So many great options without leaving the property!

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire property except a private, locked storage area. Guests can swim, fish, or relax on the dock, and even moor a boat alongside. However, the electric boat lift is inoperable. There's room to park 3-4 cars in the driveway, including one space under the carport.

Other things to note
***Our base price is for two guests because this is the most fair way for us to list it since many of our bookings are for only a few guests. We charge a $10/night fee for guests 3-6. We enforce this policy, and reserve our right to increase the fee to $20 / night per extra guest for parties who don't inform us of the correct number of guests in advance of their arrival.

*** A 5% county occupancy tax on the nightly room rate, which is not included in the amount calculated by AirBnB, will be collected by the host***
The rock steps and path to the lake are steep, lined by cacti, and can be somewhat hazardous for very young, very old and those with poor balance. Traverse the path with care, especially during low light. The decks and dock have uneven surfaces and rough surfaces; please wear shoes and walk carefully. The shore and lake bottom are rocky; water, boat or tennis shoes are recommended.

***THERE IS NO TV OR INTERNET**** This is a place to unplug, decompress, and enjoy nature. If you need to check your email, you can take a quick 10 mile trip to Burnet to use free WiFi at one of the local restaurants or coffee shops (I like Unshakeable Grounds). Cell phone service is pretty decent in the house and on the deck, sometimes not as good on the dock; depends on your carrier. There's pretty good service with Verizon and ATT; unsure about other service providers.

***Guest bathroom hot water initially might have a strong smell of sulphur*** Unfortunately this is endemic to the water supply in this area. The master bathroom doesn't have the same issue so shower there if possible.

Finally, although we have quarterly pest control service and clean the entire house after each use, you may see a bug or two during your stay. This is the country and it's common to see bugs and other wildlife here.

Location

Burnet, Texas, United States

Council Creek is one of the prettiest areas on Lake Buchanan. Council Creek was so-named because Native American tribes met at the creek to "council" and negotiate treaties, so it is also historically significant. There are many natural and geological points of interest in the area as well.

I live in Texas with my wife, two children and two dogs but we love to travel all over the World. We are also Airbnb Superhosts at our weekend house on Buchanan Lake near Austin.
