  • Introduction

    Chanticleer Log Cabin Bed & Breakfast frontChanticleer is a private, restored log cabin on 26 acres with Lake Travis frontage, in the midst of the Texas Hill Country, the Wine Trail, and the Wildflower Trail. The cabin features a front porch plus a separate screened porch with stone fireplace. Step inside to a queen bed, line-dried all-cotton linens, duvet and robes, and a claw-foot tub. Along with central air and heat, there are ceiling fans and screened windows that can be opened for cool nights. Your amenities include a stocked kitchenette, keurig coffee, milk, juice, cereals, homemade granola, flatscreen TV/DVD/CD player, movies, CDs, books, magazines, games... and homemade chocolate chip cookies. Yummy.

    The attached porch is oak-shaded, with pillows and chairs that look out at the countryfolk that include birds, deer, chickens, and Jacque and LuLu Belle, our resident miniature donkeys. Steps away are a hammock for two, stainless gas grill and the screened porch with a stone fireplace. Enjoy cool evenings in front of a fire with blankets and pillows in the adirondack chairs...spend some time roasting marshmallows we have left nearby. A walk down the gravel road leads to the waterfront with an ancient oak tree and picnic table.
