This glamping unit stays anchored in a cove. This vessel is not a charter and we do not take guests on a cruise around Lake Travis with this vessel. You and your group will be picked up by a pontoon and/or Bayliner Cierra Cruiser from the dock at Mansfield Dam Park and provided a boat tour to the cove where the accommodation is located and then another boat tour on the way back.
Our shuttle tour starts by going from one end of Mansfield Dam to the other end you will be approximately 15 feet away from the dam and being up so close the view of the dam is spectacular. From the dam we go by Sometimes Island, the Oasis Restaurant, Hippy Hollow, and Windy Point, then heading to our cove we pass by limestone cliffs, a bird sanctuary, Waterloo Adventures, and Lake Travis Zipline watching people zipping across, then head to the Houseboat. We provide a similar shuttle tour on the way back to the pickup location, which takes approximately 30 minutes in each direction, and on request we can shorten or extend the time of the shuttle tour. We have another nearby location for pickups and drop-offs that guests can also canoe or kayak from and will take about 10-15 minutes this may be a better alternative if access is needed to get to your vehicle.
There is $5 per person parking fee at our pickup location. The shuttle service is included in the price. If you overnight and need additional shuttle service it's $50 between 10 am-6 pm or $100 outside of these hours. If you have a boat, it can be tied to the houseboat. Check with us on availability and pricing if interested in renting a pontoon.
As of September 1, 2022, the Houseboat-Yacht is off-grid and electricity is powered by solar panels. In addition, we have a generator and a Goal Zero battery storage power supply as a backup.

This Airstream houseboat sits on Lake Travis and is just 30 minutes from downtown Austin. As the state capital of Texas and located next to the Texas Hill Country region, Austin provides a fantastic combination of bespoke amenities and outdoor recreation any time of year. Barton Creek Habitat Preserve is a scenic landscape on Barton Creek that protects the natural habitat of two endangered songbirds. It provides an amazing opportunity for glampers to get back in touch with nature.
Further afield, the San Marcos River offers the best of both worlds. From scenic river floats and tubing to energetic hikes and treks around the river, glampers can enjoy adventure and relaxation. Those in search of an adrenaline rush can quench their thirst by skydiving and admiring the beauty of the Hill Country region from up high. Closer to home, Lake Travis offers a wealth of activities to enjoy right at the Marina. Glampers can rent a boat, zip across the lake with a ziplining adventure, grab a drink at the Oasis and watch the magnificent sunset, or pub crawl along Marina’s waterfront.
In addition to outdoor activities, Austin is home to scores of restaurants, cafes, and beer gardens, as well as an electric live-music scene. Furthermore, glampers can visit world-class museums, discover an eclectic art and culture scene, and enjoy one-of-a-kind shopping in the heart of the city.
