Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Owners Feelings My parents bought this property on Lake Travis in the 1940’s. Cattle roamed the area and poked their heads into our camping tent. Soon after my Dad had a one room rock cabin built. It had a fireplace and surrounded with windows. Later he added a kitchen, bedroom and bath and a large covered front porch. An additional one room guest house was moved on to the property in the 50’s and we are in the process of remodeling it as the “Blue Bonnet Cottage” It will be a good overflow for the kids. It will sleep 4 and has a 1/2 bathroom. My brother and I inherited the Sunset Cabin in the 90’s and our families have enjoyed it all these years with kids and grandkids. We now rent it part of the time so others can have as much fun as we have had these many years.
Claire purchased this House in 1940
Why Claire chose Rocky Ridge
This is a Private property. Its lake side right on lake Travis. Lots of trees, 32 live oak trees. It has a private boat ramp. A large covered porch and a huge patio covered by shade from a big oak. The sunset from here is wonderful and the moonrise is magical.
What makes this House unique
Kitchen newly remodeled with vintage cabinets youngstown kitchen by Mullins. We have one futon that folds out into a double bed and another couch that pulls out into two beds for small children. It is a bit rustic and people like it. We have return customers that keep coming back. We have no technology. If you want to get away from that, this is the place. It is at the end of a dirt road on a double lot.

Loved the location on the lake and the quiet serenity of the property and the cabin built in the 1940’s. Looking forward to our families next stay.
Can't wait to come back!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunset Cabin. The rustic cabin and beautiful lake view took us back to when our family had a place on Travis for many years. It was a perfect getaway!
Fun weekend of swimming and fishing
Sweet location at the end of a rock road. We fished all day and caught lots of hand sized bluegill. We saw largemouth bass and the occasional long nose gar patrolling the shore, which was cool to see since the water was so clear. The kids had a blast.
Fishing was good all day long. We tried for catfish and carp, but no luck. LOTS of sunfish close to shore, however.
We didn't have any watercraft, but would have been a great place to bring jet skis or a boat since the property has a boat ramp.
The kids were swimming most of the time, and had fun with the wake caused by the passing jet skis and boats.
The house was comfortable with many fans and cold air window units. Close to the local HEB and gas stations. We brought in most of our food; just went out for the occasional bait and ice.
The people cleaning the house when we arrived were super friendly, and left a kayak for us to enjoy. Thank you for that!
Looking forward to staying again.

Rustic cabin on the water
Very clean rustic cabin on the water with boat ramp and stairs down to the water.
Would like to see curtains and blinds for front windows added and making the windows lockable for families staying.
Owner mike was nice and helpful.
Nice weekend get away.
Very private and good location. We and our German Shepard loved it. Easy to get to lake and swim. Only downside is the water front is mostly small/medium size rocks. Make sure you bring old gym shoes to wear in the water.
I enjoyed the charm of the old cabin and it’s beautiful view! The lake was so wonderfully accessible!!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come again sometime.
