Cabin In The Woods
At Lake Travis

Spicewood, Texas

Things To Do

While the the cabin has no view of the lake, as it's about 350 yards from the Lakeside park, it is nestled in it's own 1/2 acre private wooded area, with no other buildings, homes, or cabins visible from the front deck.

The lakeside park has tree-shaded picnic tables and park benches overlooking the water

It's a great place to watch the boats and lake while escaping the heat.

Swimming off of the boat ramp and day dock is also popular, as well as sunbathing on the day dock.

Sometimes the gate is locked, but we supply the combination. During the week, even during the summer, you usually have the park to yourself! Please make sure you take all of your trash with you, and lock the gate behind you. We supply the key.

Directions:

When coming from Houston, you may take 290 or I10/71, then see below, "Approaching from the East". When coming from Dallas/Ft.Worth/San Antonio, you may take I35, but you may also take Hwy 281 for a more scenic and relaxing route, which may be faster or not, depending on where you're coming from. The cabin is at the intersection of Crawfish Lane and Edgewater Drive, zip code of 78669, which may be located on any on-line map service such as mapquest.com. Here's the Map.

Approaching from the East - Go to the intersection of IH35 and Hwy 71, then head west from there on Ben White Freeway, which is also the combined Hwy 71 and Hwy 290. Construction is going on there, so the exit may not be very clear, so watch closely. The exit sign may only be for Hwy 71 and/or 290 West. Go a few miles, staying on 71/290, until you reach the town of Oak Hill. In Oak Hill, 71 and 290 split, take the right split to stay on 71 West. Go a few miles to the town of Bee Cave. In Bee Cave, shortly after passing an HEB on the right, you go through a light, then shortly after that is another light for Hwy 620. Staying on 71 West, go 5.1 miles after the intersection with Hwy 620, then turn right at the light on to Bee Creek Road. Then go 5.3 miles (set your trip odometer) to turn right at Thurman Bend Road. Then go 3.7 miles to Edgewater Drive, where Thurman Bend changes name to Crawfish Lane. The cabin is on your left at that intersection, with a concrete entrance, a pavestone driveway, a split rail fence on the left of the driveway, and a rock wall to the right of the driveway. The grey colored cabin is at the end of the driveway.

Approaching from the West - Go to the intersection of Hwy 281 and 71, then head east from there on Hwy 71 East, towards Austin. After about 10 miles you'll pass over the Pedernales River arm of Lake Travis. Right after that, turn left at the light on to Pace Bend Road (also has some number designation). Go about 2 miles and turn right on to Bee Creek Road, just past Lee's on the right. Then just under 2 miles turn left on to Thurman Bend Road. Then go 3.7 miles to Edgewater Drive, where Thurman Bend changes name to Crawfish Lane. The cabin is on you left at that intersection, with a concrete entrance, a pavestone driveway, a split rail fence on the left of the driveway, and a rock wall to the right of the driveway. The grey colored cabin is at the end of the driveway.
