“Wow what a view and it felt like home!”
Reviewed 1 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Be prepared to be blow away by the views from each balcony! The owner lives on site and if you didn’t know us you would think they were part of my family. The rental it’s self was also up to high standards such as high quality sheets on beds and very clean! The drive is a short distance from down town or UT stadium. Also the bath rooms were a hit with the family. Thanks for a great time!! We look forward to our next trip up!

The house and its setting are just as pictured. As other reviewers have noted, it's away from the city but a only ten-minute drive to the HEB grocery and Target store.

If anyone is wondering about the tram... Keith provides really clear instructions on how to operate it and what to expect. Any remaining nervousness went away a few seconds into our first ride up, and I quickly learned to sit where I could enjoy the view of the lake changing as we rode up and down.

The entire property is designed so that the environment is part of the experience, with the dramatic windows and multiple decks. It's relaxing just to watch the sky through the day and into the night, and see the breeze ruffle the lake.

Our experience with the owner was completely positive; we would not hesitate to do this again.

“Breathtaking and Relaxing!”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

My husband and I chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Austin, TX. The Tram House was a perfect location for this celebration. Riding a tram to access the house made it extra special. The house was perfect for many reasons: the house was a good size, the kitchen was equipped cookware and utensils, the bed was comfortable and we enjoyed the view of the lake from all three porches.

The privacy of the location and comfort of the living room was so relaxing, we had to make ourselves leave and visit Austin. We knew we didn’t come all the way to Texas to stay inside but there were a few days we didn’t leave. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, either for a long weekend or a full week….we highly recommend ‘The Tram House’.

Long story short. The day we were supposed to check in my wife's mother passed away. The owner was nice enough to let us reschedule our visit. This seemed fair. But we contacted the owner after our stay for our deposit back. He said we did not give 2 weeks notice when my wife's mother passed away so he was keeping the deposit. How we were supposed to do that since she passed on the day we were supposed to check in the first time. He made no mention of keeping the deposit when we rescheduled. He only told us the contract allowed him to keep the money since we did not give 2 weeks notice.

Management Response
26 Dec 2012
I can't believe that this traveler was not happy. he neglected to mention that we allowed them to come back to the Tram House and stay the full length of their original planned trip and only charge them the cost of the maid fee.

While it is true that we kept the one nights deposit, our house was vacant the days they had originally planned to stay and then occupied by them when they used up other days. Our hearts went out to them because of the death in the family and that is why we invited them back when we were under no obligation to do so. In the end, we lost money and now we have lost in this negative review.
