From Austin’s best luxury realtor Brian Talley:
Over the last several years, I’ve been on a mission in the heart of the Texas Hill Country: to find the best Lake Travis luxury resort community. There are only a handful of prime waterfront resort destinations on Lake Travis near Austin, and there are strong contenders – such as The Hollows on the north shore of Lake Travis and Rough Hollow in the Lakeway area. Both of these properties have access to a deep water dock and feature luxury amenities, such as a community pools, restaurants, and gyms with magnificent lake views. While each has its own set of highly desirable features, I’ve been most impressed with the Reserve at Lake Travis, due to the combination of location, views, quality construction, and its variety of entertainment features and amenities.

- 118 home sites, ranging from $200,000 to $3,900,000 and one to 6.5 acres with interior, water view, and water front lots
- 22 villas with no adjoining walls range from $765,000 to $1,395,000
The Reserve at Lake Travis contains a huge, deep water marina, an upscale equestrian center, a pavilion-style lodge with a restaurant, and a swim center with a lazy river, negative-edge pool overlooking Lake Travis, and kids’ areas.
This resort was created (Hal Jones is the developer) with a genuine understanding of the makings of a luxury retreat and with the financial backing to make dreams come true. The Reserve at Lake Travis has something for everyone, including activities, entertaining, and pure beauty all around.
The Reserve at Lake Travis is approximately 40 minutes from downtown Austin in the coveted Lake Travis School District featuring 310 acres and 3.5 miles of Lake Travis waterfront. The property is located at a mid-section on the south side of Lake Travis. Getting to the resort is fairly direct, aside from having to wind through the Hill Country and around the lake for the last 1/3 of the drive. I timed it at exactly 15 minutes from the Hill Country Galleria shopping center, making the Reserve at Lake Travis a convenient location for access to just about every retail amenity.
Upon arrival, a grand entrance with upscale landscaping and signage beckons, setting the tone for what is to come. Mostly undeveloped, the first half mile into the resort is pristine Hill Country land with large oak trees, open fields, and rolling hills. The equestrian center is first, with a huge covered and lighted arena used for horse events and shows. Beyond the arena are luxury stables and open fields for the horses to graze. In addition, there are 2.5 miles of horse trails around the property. The equestrian center offers arena privileges (1 horse per member,) overnight paddock rentals, access to the washing area, stall rentals, English and Western style riding lessons, various events, play dates, and theme nights. Stables are $550 per month to rent a small stall and $650/mo for a larger stall, including horse care. Residents get preferential reservations for stalls.
Passing the stables is the heart of the development – a welcome center, casitas overlooking the pool and lake, and a prized amenities center. Having been filmed for HGTV’s “Million Dollar Rooms,” this multi-deck swim park is a family paradise with a large negative-edge pool, a large water slide, separate children’s pools, and a stunning lazy river with a waterfall. It also boasts a walk-up and swim-up bar sporting several large screen TVs and offering plenty of food and drink.
The pool area has a stunning view of Lake Travis, and the negative-edge pool appears so real you feel like you could fall into Lake Travis if you get too close to the side! There are hospitality attendants in abundance, including lifeguards, bar tenders, towel attendants, and waiters. Just about everything a heart can desire can be found here! In addition, tennis courts are planned, as well as a restaurant and a Spa & Wellness Center with gym.
The Reserve at Lake Travis also features the Cypress Club lodge, located on 5.5 acres of waterfront property. Perfect for large events, family meals, and social events, this pavilion-style building features a grill and huge covered patio with thick, plastic shades that can be pulled down for weather protection. There is also a fire pit, a traditional wood-fired pizza oven, a playground with walk-up access to the lake, a large screen TV, comfortable lounge furniture – and canoes for residents. Accent lighting on the trees surrounding the lodge adds a special touch of charm.
The Reserve at Lake Travis’ marina boasts 150 slips – with 240 covered boat slips up to 80 feet planned – all managed by the resort. The marina is located directly adjacent to the amenities center with convenient parking providing easy access to the boat slip and pool facilities. The marina is accessible by an oversized sidewalk providing golf cart access not only down to the marina, but also on the marina. This means there are no trams to hassle with and no long walks with your hands full of stuff for the boat. The marina sits on a deep water section of the lake so boats are always sitting on water regardless of whether the water level is up or down. (Prices range from $365/month for 12×24; $475/month for 14×30; $795/month for 16×38; $895/month for 20×46; and $1200/month for 22×80; wave runner slips are $75/month.) Having year-round deep water boat access on the south side of Lake Travis close to town as well as the five-star amenities center makes this one of the top central Austin destinations in my book.
I would unequivocally endorse the Reserve at Lake Travis for those interested in luxury Lake Travis properties. Please contact me if you would like more information, or if you decide to visit this resort, please tell them that Brian Talley of Regent Property Group LLC sent you!
