Why Terry chose Highland Lake Estates

The Gatehouse used to be the management office for The Island Resort. After purchasing, the office was remolded into a gorgeous 3 bedroom vacation house that spans the entrance to The Island.

What makes this house unique

The Gatehouse has all the comforts of a resort community while also providing a private get-away with panoramic views of Lake Travis.

Great property for families looking to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited this property from May 1st to May 4th, 2017. We had a very positive experience! To begin, the rates are extremely reasonable. We have three young children (1, 2, and 7 years old) and a hotel is not ideal when traveling with the many things you need with little ones such as strollers, pack 'n plays, diaper bags, toys, booster seats/high chairs, etc., so staying in a house made our visit very comfortable! The layout of the house is a HUGE plus! The secondary bedrooms are spacious though separate from the master area so once the little ones are in bed, as adults, you can watch a movie, have a glass of wine, wind down together, etc. Our initial impression of the house was very positive: clean, well stocked, and decorated very well! I would describe it as modern with the comforts of home. My favorite part of the house is the kitchen - plenty of dishes, cookware and awesome appliances to use. We also loved the many balconies. We spent time outdoors and also visiting all three pools (lol!) as well as checking out hiking and local eateries. When you arrive, there is a handy dandy binder full of things such as where to rent a boat, kayak, or bike, some good restaurants and also things like the wifi password and information about the spa. All in all, we would certainly return either just as a couple or with the little ones again. This location could also be great for bridal parties or a girls weekend away, for sure! We hope to visit again!

A bit unusual but interesting place!

  • 5 of 5

Nice place. Got to meet the owner due to a minor dishwasher issue and it was taken care of quickly. Access to the main resort area is easy. The lake was pretty far down so it looked less like an island, but that’s just something you deal with here.

Gorgeous house, and even more beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

There were a few appliance issues we came across in the house during our stay, however Terry was very prompt and helpful in getting the bigger of those issues fixed. Outside of that, the house was beyond anything we could have asked for. The view was breathe taking, we enjoyed our stayed and would love to come back to the island and the gatehouse.

Relaxing weekend in the Gatehouse

  • 5 of 5

I found the Gatehouse to be very comfortable, well supplied, and a great place to get away. The house manager was very responsive to a slight issue we had with Netflix.

We will definitely return!

Amazing getaway with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the gatehouse for 2 nights for a bachelorette weekend. The house was extremely clean and very spacious! The sunset views are incredible and the surround sound makes for a perfect environment for fun. The deer around the property are so peaceful to watch and had it been warmer the water access is extremely close and very accessible. The house was well stocked with towels and linens which was great. Terry was wonderful to communicate with and extremely helpful. We loved this place so much and did not want to leave !! Will recommend and will definitely be back.
