Why Lynda & Marq Jones chose Illakee
Lake Austin Guesthouse sits in Happy Hollow, a private estate on the upper end of Lake Austin, near Lakeway. The scenic road to our property passes through two miles of the Balcones Canyonland Preserve. With great consideration we keep the grounds as organic and native as possible and maintain the house with green building materials and green cleaning products.
What makes this Guest House unique
Our gated property is unique and upon entry feels like you are stepping back in time, into an enchanted place. The entire estate is mostly shaded with large, hundred year-old live oak and pecan trees, native to Texas. The setting is semi-rural, private, yet two minutes away from all the amenities a guest could need. Our boat dock, with two boat slips, has a large deck above and one open slip for our guests. So bring your boat and enjoy the best stretch of water on Lake Austin.

Lovely property right on the lake. So relaxing to sit on the dock or lounge by the pool. Felt miles from nowhere but actually close to great shopping and restaurants. Will definitely return.
Long weekend on Lake Austin
Beautiful place on Lake Austin. Peaceful. Quiet. Great view. Great guest house. Everything perfect. Nice people. We will be back.
Perfect Lake getaway
The property is the perfect balance of a secluded feeling getaway, while still being accessible to great restaurants and grocery stores. We took our family of four, and it was perfect for us to access lake Austin and explore the local area. We will definitely be staying again!
Fathers Day Vaca
The property and owners were amazing. Couldn’t be happier with our stay there.
A little slice of Heaven right here on Earth!
We booked last minute and still received 5+ star accommodations and owners were traveling in Europe!! They arranged from abroad and their lovely daughter took care of the rest! We loved this place. It's a special place and the pictures are exact! It's paradise and we can't wait to go back and meet the owners who have created this magical getaway! Thank you guys so much!
Oasis of nature and comfort, and adventuring
Our family of four (kids; 7 and 10) had an excellent Eastern weekend at Lake Austin Guesthouse. The house is just great - comfortable, spacious, with just about everything you might want (or have forgotten), we utilised the kayaks, paddle boards on the rivers, we played in the garden, swam in the pool, cooked a great dinner, and generally had alot of fun. Thank you so much, and hope we can come stay again. Also a great location, very central to stuff if you need it.
Our Lake Austin Guesthouse is located in the heart of a recreational mecca. Boating, golfing, hiking, fishing, etc., the area offers activities for the entire family. We are located just a short drive from downtown Austin for those who want to hear live music, attend events at the University of Texas or Circuit of the Americas, and anything else Austin has to offer. For travelers with a private airplane, the Lakeway Airpark (3R9) is four miles away and we can arrange pick up. We are located west of the city with easy access to the Hill Country for scenic drives, day trips to Fredericksburg, Enchanted Rock, San Antonio and Willow City Loop.
