Warm and welcoming
We spent a delightful Thanksgiving week at The Palms at Lake Travis. Robin made us feel so welcome and went out of her way to meet any needs we had. We stayed in the Gatehouse and it was a perfect place for our out-of-town and local austinites to gather for a fun, relaxing week.
We appreciated having eggs, milk and bread awaiting us, along with snacks, chips and wine.
All in all, a great place to stay. Some in our group felt the beds were too soft and that new sheets are about due. Some of the kitchen tools were also pretty hammered. These minor complaints are the only reason we didn't give five stars, but would happily stay here again.
We felt like we got excellent value and had a wonderful stay. Enjoyed the hot tub and appreciated the cleanliness of the entire property.

Thank you for the positive comments and the constructive feedback. We take your suggestions very seriously, and we appreciate you taking the time to let us know where we could improve. We strive to make our guests' experience at The Palms first class!
Your comments about the sheets are the first time we've heard anything negative about them, and we will take action right away to replace them with newer sheets.
We also agree with you about the kitchen tools - it's time for an upgrade, so the Garden House will be getting a new set for Christmas! They were upgraded in the Lakefront Suite just last summer, and the Garden House is ready to catch up!
On the beds, we've received a lot of very positive comments about the comfort of the beds - it's just one of those things where you can't please everyone. Some like them softer and some like them firmer. We could always remove the foam toppers for those who like the more firm beds on your next visit.
Again - thanks so much - it was a pleasure to meet your family, and we hope to see you again for a future stay! ~ Robin

Perfect weekend retreat in austin
This property is stunning with a perfect location. If you are looking for a fun weekend with family/friends, you will not be disappointed!
A wonderful weekend and wedding!
We rented out both the guest house and the bedroom of the main house for our wedding ceremony and for the family from out of town to have a place to stay. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the little touches and helpfulness of the owners made the weekend go smoothly even with all the wedding commotion! The groom and I stayed at a near by resort that didn't even compare to The Palms. We plan on returning for our anniversary and this time staying at The Palms!

Thanks, Lesley - it was a true delight meeting your family... you were the calmest bride we've ever seen! We look forward to seeing you again someday soon...
I am a native of austin, and come back frequently to visit family, typically staying with family. This trip we decided to rent a place, and I can say that our stay at the Palms literally transformed our whole vacation. Stunningly beautiful, absolutely luxurious, and every single detail has been anticipated by the owners, Robin and Rodney. We felt completely at home. My kids loved swimming in the lake, running around on the expansive lawn, and the late night chats on the patio. We had planned to do other activities--and Robin was also great at suggestions of things to do--but we loved the house so much we invariably ended up hanging out there instead. I think that says it all!

Thanks for the wonderful comments! We surely enjoyed your family and group and hope you return again someday soon! :-)
I stayed there for a ladies weekend on June 28-July 1. There were 10 of us; 6 in the Garden House and 4 in the Lake Front House. The owners Robin and Rodney were very nice and accommodating. They live on the property, but gave us a lot of privacy, we very seldom saw them. This is an amazing place to stay, absolutely gorgeous! The description and photos are very accurate. They provided us with all the amenities listed. Both houses were very clean. We had a wonderful time!
