-Access to 150 feet of Lake Travis shoreline, including boat dock that is loaded with lake toys, including life jackets and don't forget your fishing poles!

-Access to a common area (that is shared with three other rental properties that can be rented with the cabin if you are traveling in a large group) that provides a large fire pit with plenty of seating, hammocks, teeter-totter, and so many interesting things to see.

-Dog-friendly premises - as long as your four-legged friend is 40 pounds and under and up-to-date on their vaccines.

-Walking distance to the Sundancer Grill for a meal on the water!

-Wifi, clothes washer/dryer, television.

If you’ve had your fun in the sun and are needing a night on the town, hop in the car and you can keep it weird in Downtown Austin - just 20 miles away! The surrounding Texas Hill Country also offers plenty of shops, restaurants, wineries, and hikes for you to indulge in.

Having stayed at Robins Nest with our Shih Tzu previously a couple of years ago, we made our reservation expecting the same nice bed and breakfast. Its pricy and an extra $50 for the pet, but we thought quaint. However, the check in process has changed and led to confusion on our part before resolving that we never got the intended instructional email before arrival. Once that was handled, the code entry door was a problem but also resolved. The Cabin has a very small shower, not as nice as The Perch room we had before, the TV didnt work, there was a discrepancy with the WiFi info, and then we found out there was no breakfast anymore. Probably should have been mentioned at initial reservation. Robin prepared a super breakfast each morning at our previous stay. That was a disappointment. They did accommodate us and extended our check out because we were golfing until 2 pm, which was appreciated.

Sharon,We are sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. The listing stated clearly that The Cabin, along with the other properties that were once part of Robin's Nest, have all been transitioned over to short-term rentals. The listing also states that small pets are allowed with a pet deposit, so we are sorry that you were put off by the required deposit. Regarding the check-in email, it was sent twice, and each time ended up in your 'spam' folder. We do regret that this happened. There was no issue with the entry code - as the check-in email indicates, the door can be 'sticky' and may feel locked, but it is not. While the shower in the Cabin is smaller than the one in the Perch, it does fit the size of the property (the Cabin is significantly smaller than the Perch so it makes sense that the shower too was smaller). We do regret that the cable was an issue during your stay, however we delivered a ROKU to the Cabin on the very day the issue was reported, which should have resolved any further problems you had with the television. As part of our welcome gift to our guests, each group is welcomed with wine, fresh fruit and breakfast pastries - not a home-cooked breakfast, but certainly something that we hope you enjoyed.Again, sorry this trip was not all that you expected.- Amy with iTrip

My wife and I live in fort worth Texas and just recently stayed the weekend for our anniversary. We needed something that would accommodate our 2 labs and 2 kids. This place was so great for entertaining the kids. There is a diving board on the deck and a lookout above it, that they jumped off. The restaurant in walking distance was convenientl, it kept us from having to buy groceries. It does not serve breakfast though. The only complaint I would have is there was not a separate backyard for our dogs. There were other houses that had dogs also and the backyard is shared with 3 other houses. We were forced to walk them on a leash and keep them inside. We were hoping they could enjoy the vavation also. Other then that, the trip was great... we prob would have not taken the dogs had we known a little more.

The Cabin on Stewart Cove was an awesome place to stay for a girl's lake weekend on Lake Travis. The cabin and dock area were private and perfect for celebrating a friend's birthday! Stewart Cove is a quick drive from the heart of Austin, yet you feel away from the city while vacationing. Floating in the cove was heavenly. The iTrip Team was amazing too. When I reported the Internet was not working on the first morning of the stay, a hotspot was dropped within a half hour. The Cabin was so relaxing that we reserved another night. The dog loved the property too! My friends and I highly recommend this property.

Stayed in "The Cabin" 2 nights, Fri & Sat. Great location on Quiet lake cove in Lakeway area. Amy & Jenn were so nice to Allow a same day booking. Cabin very cozy, clean and decorated Very well. Had own patio, shared large yard and big dock on cove. We brought our boat and used one of the 4 slips. Plenty of room and privacy. Bubba and Robin, onsite owners We're very nice, and stopped by to check on us. Sundancer Grill Just a block away a great place to eat. It was great to be able To take our dog with us to pet friendly lodging. Will definitely Go back, would like try other three units each time as all Are different and unique. My partner and I enjoyed our stay. Thanks again to Amy & Jenn for great last minute accommodations and service.

We liked the property, just too many added fees. The rental cost was 125 per night. After all the fees, our total cost per night was over $200 per night. The value is not there, the place we rented was not worth 200 per night.The owners were great super nice, the property needs updating for $200 per night. There was also no DVD player and only two towels, not a big deal but again at $200 per night.Very confusing about the difference between iTrips and HomeAway- seems like too many people involved in an actual rental transaction
Reviewed on Aug 17, 2018 by Benjamin, San Antonio, TX   Report

Hi Kevin, Thank you for your feedback. iTrip manages the property, HomeAway is a booking site - it's where property managers and owners go to list their properties, so if you find a home on HomeAway, you're always going to end up having more than just HomeAway involved in the rental process. While the nightly rental rate was listed at $125, you are correct in that there are additional (unavoidable) fees including Cleaning, Taxes, security deposit, and homeaway fees. We wish you'd called if you were in need of more towels, as we would have been happy to bring some out to you. Thanks again for your feedback, -Amy with iTrip

We had so much fun at the Robin's Nest cabin. It was just what our family needed. The cabin was rustic and nice and was complete with everything that we could've needed. The water was just steps away with lots of fun stuff to do. The diving board, and jumping platform took my kids attention most days! We paddle boarded, floated, swam and fished off the dock all day. Robin and Bubba, the owners, were so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely go back to Robin's Nest. It was peaceful and quiet also and the Sundancer Grill was just steps away for the nights we didn't feel like cooking. Thanks Robin & Bubba!

A great little cabin in the lake that has lots of shade trees and overlooks the water. It was peaceful and private and perfect for our group of three. Robin and Bubba have a perfect little oasis for guests eager to stay on the lake. We hope to return!

The Cabin was perfect for our family trip! We made so many great memories from watching fireworks on the dock, to catching fish and swimming! We really did enjoy ourselves every minute. The Cabin was nice, clean and comfy for our family of 3 and our dog! We also enjoyed the company of other families on the lot, it was nice having all the kids swimming and catching fish together. We have already looked into coming back sometime soon!

The owner of the property met us when we checked in, Bubba was very nice and helpful. The cabin we stayed in was perfect, clean, right on the water, great fishing from the private dock, located in Lakeway, close to some great restaurants on the water with live music and good food.
