I loved all the shade the house had to offer. There were so many deer and fawn that came out and into the yard in the evening time. The old architecture of the house was great. My favorite was the kitchen farm sink. The house was perfect for myself, my husband, and my adult kids. The kitchen was fully stalked with utensils as well as glasses and bowls; although, there were many pots of varying sizes, there was only one pan that I would have to rewash for other things I was cooking. There are a couple of long tables for everyone to sit comfortably to eat and play games. I had read other reviews about the beds; however, we did not find them uncomfortable at all. Firm but not uncomfortable. The bed frames were iron so, other than make very little sound when you got in or out of them, we did not find them to be overly squeaky. There was a public parking area just right up the road which made the walk to the town square with all the shops very easy. Just be prepared that there is no tubing or pick up/drop off like the Comal, Guadalupe, or San Marcos rivers. There is a short walk down the creek into the river where the water is deeper and flows faster. Taking chairs into the creeking in the evening time was so nice. Overall, we had a wonderful time.

Love this place. We've been twice now, and it doesn't disappoint. Just a heads up, the beds are very creaky. But otherwise, it's perfect :)

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Austin Cottage! The house was clean and cozy with comfortable beds and lots of tables to play games with friends. The creek was so beautiful and the crisp cool water on a warm day was perfect for unwinding from the stresses of everyday life. It's so close to town that it is very convenient if you need anything, but you feel like you're far removed when you're there. The sound of the running water and the birds singing, the fireflies in the evenings... make such good memories. Will stay there again for sure!

We loved the location and proximity to town and the river access. The only complaint I have is that the beds were extremely loud which wakes people at night because of the cabin layout. They are very uncomfortable. Other than that the place was perfect. We would have paid extra each night just to have more comfortable beds. Overall it was a great trip and a great location!
Hi, Cari! We appreciate your review and apologize the beds made sleep so difficult for your group. The owner has been made aware. Thank you!

Thoughtfully appointed cabin, ideal location, and lovely views.

It was a very cute home in a quiet area, but it was also close to everything. We put our chairs in the middle of the river and sat relaxing all day. The photos were true to the home and water...very nice.

We loved our stay at the Wimberley cottage. It’s small but was perfect for our family! It’s basically one big space. It’s decorated very well. Perfect location right on the creek. The creek was pretty shallow and we could walk a few houses down to the lake which was deeper. The land is lovely and we really enjoyed our time. Only complaint is that the beds are very uncomfortable. It’s time for some new beds. It wouldn’t stop us from staying again but we wouldn’t stay more than a few days because of the beds. The cottage was very clean! We loved our time! Would be 5 stars if they replaced beds.
Thank you for staying with Vacasa and thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. Guest's feedback regarding their particular preferences is always considered and passed along to our local manager to review, in order to make necessary upgrades for future guests' pleasures and comforts.

We appreciated the privacy and solitude that this cottage offered our family. It was clean, quiet, and very comfortable. We enjoyed playing in the creek, walking down to the river, frisbee on the hillside, and sitting in our chairs next to the wayer. It was incredibly relaxing. We felt isolated and safe two things that are very important in today's world. I can't wait to go back!

We absolutely loved our time at Austin Cottage. It was the perfect space for our family of four. The kids had fun playing in the creek and we were able to walk down to the Blanco River for some snorkeling. It is also within walking distance to town if you want to do a little shopping or grab a bite to eat. We will definitely be back!

Location, location, location. Right near downtown, but still off the beaten path. The cabin is cute. The creek is perfect. I'll be honest, the beds are not very comfy and they are loud when you move an inch, but it doesn't matter. So much character. I love the place.

I’ve been coming to the Austin cottage for the last 41 years
Raised my boys coming to the cabin in the summers
And now they are bringing their children
Situated with Cypress Creek right in the backyard
And the Blanco River just 2 cabins down
Great place to stay!!!

Everything about this cabin was perfect for us. We just wanted peace, quiet, and a river to sit in for a couple days. This cottage did the trick. We’ll definitely be back.
