Welcome to the House on the Creek. Located just ten minutes from downtown Austin in beautiful West Lake Hills the House on the Creek is like a tree house in the woods. This private estate sits on a one-acre wooden lot and is a great escape among the deer and the trees, while only minutes from the hustle of downtown Austin. Your stay at the House on the Creek allows you access to a well-tended walking/hiking trail bordered by the creek.
This welcoming split-level home features four outside decks and two stone fireplaces. 3 upstairs bedrooms, a large sunny, sunken living room, indoor and outdoor dining areas and the kitchen are all in one big open space. Downstairs has an office/playroom, a large family room, a private suite, and a deck that wraps around the entire downstairs floor with access from every room.
A great place to escape and relax, ideal for family’s, retreats or gatherings.
Gretchen is a writer, poet and philanthropist. She has lived in the house next door for 40 years. She purchased this property as a guest house for her friends and family. She also owns the two wooded lots on the backside of the property. She is an avid hiker and walks the trails daily. The four lots combined are a rare gem in a major city, and part of the reason you feel like you are in the middle of the woods when in fact you are 10 minutes from downtown.
Gretchen purchased this estate in 2000
We had a wonderful time at the house in 2012, and were excited to see it was available for another family reunion in December 2016. The kids didn't want to leave! The toy room has shelves of toys and a child-sized table and chairs. Outside, there's a tree house, swing, and two zip lines! Not to mention the opportunity to explore along the trail by the creek. The house is comfortable, well furnished, and easily accommodated five adults and five children, as well as local friends for a cookout on Saturday night. Crossing our fingers that the house will be available for our next reunion!
We stayed here for a week in June 2016 and the place was great. It was well kept and clean, and the owner was very friendly and when some issues arose they were immediately taken care of.
The property is in a great location, as your about 10 minutes from downtown Austin, yet feel like you're miles away from the city in the hills. The property has some short trails that are great for hiking with the kids and keeping busy when around the home.
There is a great shopping center about 7 minutes from the house with a grocery store, Tacodeli and other restaurants.
If I come back to Austin I would stay here again.
this place was a temporary home
for my family of 5 while we moved here. worked really well - nice layout kid friendly and great location. definitely recommend!
Hard to find, but worth it. Totally secluded, but only 10 minutes from the heart of Austin. There were 5 adults & 4 teenagers in our group and there was plenty of room for all of us. Plenty of towels and linens. We were in town for a wedding and the place worked out perfect for us. Much more convenient than a hotel downtown. Will definitely stay here again if we are in Austin in the future. I only had one complaint.....need a lid for the large frying pan!
Located up in beautiful west lake hills but only a few minutes from dt Austin. if you like nature, like we do, this is perfect. It is lush and there were many wild flowers in bloom. It was fabulous enjoying coffee in the am while listening to all of the chirping birds. The drive from the road to the house is Very steep. We used the home as our base camp for the weekend our son got married. It worked out wonderfully! The owner/pm were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely rent again.
We stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday and had a fantastic experience. House is perfect for kids and family, and the property manager is super responsive/easy to reach. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!
