Visit Website


Welcome to The Hideaway! We’re a secluded B&B less than 5 minutes from Lake Travis and Lake Austin, only 20 minutes to DT Austin. We’re right off RR 620, just 5 minutes from the Sunset Capital of Texas (The Oasis - Austin) and right across the street from the historic Mansfield Dam County Park which has the most accessible boat ramp on Lake Travis. You’ll enter The Hideaway through private Tuscan walls and bamboo borders. Follow the flagstone path down to your secluded cottage. Come on in, unpack your bags, and get comfortable! Turn on your favorite music and collapse onto the soft bed. Take in the quaint and crisp décor, including the genuine hardwood floors, shimmering walls, freshly tiled bath with unique antique wash basin, and the new & fully-furnished kitchenette complete with refrigerator, microwave, portable cooktop, toaster oven, and dishwasher. You may want to explore the grounds. Trek up to the main courtyard and gaze at the towering tree canopies, colorful gardens, meditation trails, gurgling water features, and enjoy watching the birds and squirrels play. Or collapse into your hammock and melt away the stress. You may want to meander over to your own private patio to read a good book under the pergola. Or slip into one of our soft robes, make yourself a drink, and slide into your own private outdoor hot tub for a relaxing soak under the stars. Fire up the grill for an old-fashioned outdoor cook-out. Or, only minutes away, you’ll find dozens of restaurants from very casual lake-front cafes to some of Austin’s finest dining experiences. For entertainment, you'll find plentiful shopping, golfing, boating, fishing, kayaking, parasailing, zip-lining, and many more fun activities - all only minutes away from The Hideaway. While you're away at dinner, we'll set up breakfast in your cottage. You'll awaken to pastries, fruits, coffees, teas, and juice. Please come and enjoy a wonderful stay at The Hideaway!

Weekend Getaway

3.4 on March 15, 2015

Short weekend trip. This B&B had a very peaceful and relaxing feel. The owners rent out this garage apartment like room off their house. Very private. Hammock and small hot tub were enjoyable. Only "con" would be not to pay for the $15 breakfast. "Breakfast" was orange juice, bananas, oranges, apples and pastries.

New Years Day Retreat Weekend 2015

5 on January 09, 2015

I spent 2 days there and was in heaven. It was a surprise trip and the look on my face when I found it was a bed and breakfast priceless. I have tried a few and did not like them. This trip was truly an exception. The suite was beautiful and the grounds superb. The hot tub and the patio just added a bit of charm. The decor is tranquil. Unlike others, your breakfast is when you want it. There is no time schedule for breakfast. You are attached to the home yet you are on the far side and very secluded. Everything you needed plus some were supplied, firewood, fire starter, charcoal, lighter fluid, flashlights, dishwasher detergent etc. A book containing area attractions and restaurants made it simple to check out the surrounding areas. Thank you. Jeff Brinker and Donna Valentino

Romantic Hideaway

3.8 on November 24, 2014

My fiancé brought me out there for Valentine's Day in 2013. We arrived in the evening and to my surprise the backyard patio was lit up with lights, the whole area looked so beautiful. When I stepped inside, there was soft music playing, a bottle of wine chilling and chocolate strawberries laid out perfectly. Ann is so sweet and accommodating, she really helped my fiancé put such a special night together for us. It was a wonderful getaway, I would definitely recommend and I can't wait for him to take me back : )

Romance in the Air

We stayed for 5 days at this lovely bed and breakfast. Everything was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. This was a perfect get away. Ann made sure to clean our room whenever we were out. Ann and her dog were very sweet.

Great Getaway!

My husband took me to The Hideaway for my birthday to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. It was perfect! We stayed there the entire weekend grilled out, stayed in the hot tub and relaxed. Ann was a great hostess and Meggie was an awesome addition to our stay. We highly recommend this place for the perfect getaway. Enjoy!!!! :-)

My husband and I returned here after we left our wedding. We were not able to take a honeymoon so we decided to have a relaxing couple of days here at the Hideaway. OH MY this place was so magical and beautiful. FINALLY I wasnt stressed about anything after my wedding because Ann honestly thought of everything... she provides all things that make your stay special and memorable. I cant wait to return for our Anniversary. Ann, you have a special gift from God... thanks for making our wedding night so special and relaxing. Jessica & Greg

Fantastic Honeymoon

5 on June 18, 2013

We stayed at The Hideaway for our honeymoon. We are a 24 yr old couple and we were looking for something romantic in a good area with fun things to do. This place delivered all of that and more. I wasn't expecting much given the nightly rate but I was pleasantly surprised and even shocked! My wife immediately swooned upon pulling into the drive. The stay here truly made us feel special. Everything was perfect right down to the smallest details. The room was absolutely spotless and incredibly charming. The pictures don't do it justice. Ann and Meggie were the sweetest hosts you could hope for. We don't make too many trips to Austin but The Hideaway is now our first choice when visiting Austin. We would have to be crazy to stay in a hotel now that we know about The Hideaway. Thank you so much Ann and Meggie!

A magical weekend!!

This B&B is so magical... the plants, the flickering lights, the hot tub, the stars, the way it seems like little elves show up to bring you fresh pastries and juice and freshen up your room! The Hideaway is absolutely wonderful!!

My wife & I recently stayed there 3 nights - celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary. It was the perfect place to 'hide away', quiet and peaceful. Especially liked the fountains and scenery. Ann & Meggie were great. And it's just minutes from Austin. We couldn't have had a better place.

Perfect Getaway!

5 on April 24, 2013

My husband & I stayed at The Hideaway for 3 nights for our 38th anniversary getaway. We both thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay and it was tough when it was time to leave. Ann & Meg provide a wonderful, peaceful environment with all the comforts of home and with a personal touch that is hard to find these days. I highly recommend The Hideaway to anyone looking for a getaway from the daily chaos and stress of daily life. We can't wait to go back again!
