An intimate get away with just a few close members can be the most rewarding of vacations and when you and 3 or fewer of your favorite people choose to travel to Austin or Dripping Springs, we think you will fall in love with the charms of our Austin Vacation Rentals Dripping Springs Cottage by the Creek. Offering 1 tranquil bedroom, and 1 beautiful bathroom, your vacation dreams will come true with the luxurious comforts and quiet serenity found in this sweet Austin cottage rental you will love to come home to every night of your stay.
From the outside, guests will be charmed by the simple stone cottage that stands quietly in a field of grass surrounded by mature trees; a comfortable bench sits on a small stone patio, providing a serene place to sit and soak in the tranquility of the Texas landscape. Step into a cozy space featuring vaulted ceilings, wood floors, and an open concept floor plan that harbors no secrets. The living room space, centered by a luxurious leather sofa sleeper is kept light with crisp white walls and wide and generous windows that frame the Texas Hill Country views perfectly. A television provides entertainment while an oversized chair with an ottoman creates the perfect space for relaxing or reading during a lazy night at home. A small pub height table is where romantic meals for two can be enjoyed, but if you are traveling with family, never fear; outdoors under the canopy of mature oaks, there is room for all guests to come together for a family meal in the form of a large picnic table and comfortable outdoor seating areas. A modern kitchen with dark cabinets and light granite countertops can be used for creating healthy feasts, offering professional quality appliances in stainless steel, and more views of the Texas landscape through a window over the sink. The full bath is down here on this first level, offering a walk-in shower and single vanity. The magic of our Dripping Springs Cottage by the Creek, however, can be found in the loft area that overlooks the public spaces of the home. A king bed anchors the space that is surrounded by wide windows that provide light and still manage to preserve your privacy as you rest, relax, and dream happy dreams in a bed topped with the softest of linens.
More to Love
We have already mentioned some of the delights found outside, but of course, there is more to be explored. A block fireplace provides warmth and romance on chilly nights, while a propane grill can give guests an alternative spot to cook on those nights you aren’t quite ready to go back inside! A candelier (chandelier with candles, not lights) hangs over the picnic table, and Adirondack chairs dot the landscape of the backyard, peering out onto a scene of pure tranquility and natural beauty. A fire pit by the creek is where ghost stories will be told and marshmallows will be roasted and archery targets made of hay can add the excitement of competition to your getaway. Reserve this special property today!

The road trip is a unique experience that has been enjoyed by Americans since before we became a nation, as early settlers gathered everything they owned, tucked it under cover of their wagons, and headed out on the trails seeking a life that was better than the one they were living at the time. And although they weren’t likely to stop by roadside attractions advertising the biggest ball of yarn, those early journeys were still the precursor to today’s family road trips and as you begin to hit the road for your Spring Journey to Austin, the X that marks journey’s end will be ever so much more comfortable if it brings you to our Austin Vacation Rentals. This guide to all the fun you can have when you get out of the car this spring will ensure that this road trip to Austin will be one you never forget!
