The Nest on Lake Travis
$202.46 - $299.32 / night   in Austin  
1 Bedroom 2 Bathrooms Sleeps 6

Come and visit The Nest, a pet-friendly, waterfront oasis on the South Shore of Lake Travis - and just 20 miles from downtown Austin! The Nest sits serenely on Stewart’s Cove, just outside of Lakeway, TX, and offers guests waterfront access with a boat dock and your own little shore! This is the perfect place to spend your summer vacation and make lasting memories - complete with swimming, dock-jumping, fishing, and boating in a secluded cove.

What was once part of Robin's Nest Bed & Breakfast, The Nest doubles as both a romantic getaway for you and your partner and a fun, family destination to escape the summer heat at.

__________ ABOUT THE HOME __________

- 1 bedroom with a king size bed, french doors that look out to one of two covered patios

- 1 'nook' is the perfect spot for stackable twin beds that can be taken apart and moved, or remain stacked as a single twin

- A cozy living room space with a full size pullout sofa

- 2 full bathrooms

- An eclectic, fun kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a door that opens to…

- … Perhaps the most utilized space in the house - the outside patio that overlooks the water! Start each day right with a coffee and view of the lake, converse and dine around the large dining table found on the patio as well, and end the day right with a glass of wine under the stars.

- Free WiFi, large TV, full-size washer & dryer.

You’ll feel right at home in this rustic cottage, but don’t get too comfortable; the outdoors are calling your name!

The Nest shares property with four other residences (which can be rented with The Nest if you’re traveling in a large group) that all have access to the boat dock, 150 feet of shoreline, and access to the common area. The common area is shared space and provides:

- One of, if not THE best swimming coves in Lake Travis.

- A large fire pit.

- Hammocks.

- A teeter-totter.

- And the dock that offers a diving board, lake toys including fishing poles, floats, life jackets, etc.

Dogs are most certainly welcome to enjoy the grounds with you (limit of 1 dog per unit) if they are under 40 pounds and are up to date on their vaccinations!

If you’ve had your fun in the sun and are needing a night on the town, hop in the car and you can be at the Live Music Capital of the World in half an hour. The surrounding Texas Hill Country all around Lakeway also offers plenty of shops, restaurants, wineries, and hikes for you to indulge in. Or, simply walk down the street and enjoy a meal on the water at the Sundancer Grill - just a two minute walk from The Nest!

Whether you are just needing a weekend repose with your partner or you are treating your family to a summer vacation, look no further than the Nest on Lake Travis! The Nest will accommodate up to 6 people, no more.

This place was awesome for what we wanted. Very close to the water with an awesome dock and diving board, along with paddle board rentals and floats. I’d definitely rent it again for the dock and proximity to the water alone! Kitchen has everything you need and there’s a cool outdoor space as well. Only downsides are the limited parking, the sleeping situation and the shared space. We had 4 guys sleeping there and 2 of the beds were better suited for small kids—but we made it work! There’s only 2-3 parking spots but we managed to take some additional parking spaces since nobody was staying in the upstairs rental apt. FYI the dock is shared by at least 2 other rentals and can feel a little cramped when each place has a large group (unless you are there to mingle). You can also bring a boat or jet skis and doc them there, which is really cool! Overall it was really fun and I’d def recommend it to anyone who isn’t just looking for a quiet lake property—come ready to mingle and swim! Loved the lake and the free paddle boards.

Hi Aaron, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review - we are glad you enjoyed your stay! We have tried to make it clear in the listing that this is definitely not a place for a quiet weekend away at the lake - there are a total of 6 properties in the cul-de-sac, all of which are vacation rentals, and the dock and certain areas are shared space - great for making new friends but you are correct, not the place if you're looking for a romantic couples getaway. Again, so glad you enjoyed your stay and we'd love to have you back! Thank you for the feedback, -Amy with iTrip

This make year number 3 to visit Robins Nest on Lake Travis. We had another amazing year. Perfect place to just relax and enjoy some down time. We enjoy having the boat right there and not having to load/unload the boat every trip. We will see you again next year.

My husband and I with our teenage girls and dog had the best spring break staying at the "The Nest". This place has such character and the back porch that looks out to the cove and lake is where we spent most of the day and night, we even used the fire pit outside. The hammock came to good use for taking naps and there were plenty of chairs to sit outside. The location was great, close to a marina where we rented a boat and there is a great restaurant, the Sundancer Grill in walking distance. The dock was great with diving board and a deck on top to jump from also. The water was cold but it didn't stop us from having fun. Our dog enjoyed the huge backyard but could've used an enclosed fence. The only other things lacking were a grill and maybe a couple of kayaks. We will surely return for another stay here.

I could not have stayed at a more perfect place for Mothers Day weekend! Robins Nest was right off of Lake Travis just as we had hoped to find! The dock gives you direct access to jump in the lake or pull in a boat. The whole family took advantage of the diving board right off the deck. Only half of us were brave enough to jump from the roof access. The sleep we had in our suite “The Nest” was clean and very comfortable. The Texas rustic deco was truly cozy. I was able to cook a huge breakfast in the full kitchen the next morning. It was modern and newly remodeled. We had two twin beds and one queen. And a pull out couch in the living room to sleep more. Our room also had it’s own washer and dryer which was perfect for all the dirty clothes after swimming. We were able to use the propane grill and smoker for dinner on our patio. It was very spacious with reclining chairs and hammocks. The next night we went out for dinner at the amazing Oasis Bar and restaurant which was only ten minutes away from our stay! Not to mention HEB being down the street for groceries and emergencies! We were even able to take a trip into Austin and check out some of the city. The 30 minute beautiful scenic drive there was probably my favorite part. It was the perfect combination of fun and relaxation. Robin, the owner, was delightful and genuinely accommodating! Robins Nest will be my first choice for every lake Travis getaway. I can’t wait to go back!
