Welcome to Lake Travis

Luxurious homes and active lifestyle on Lake Travis’ shores.


Lake Travis stretches for 65 miles with 30 square miles of surface area, making it the largest of the six Highland Lakes and one of the most popular for boating, fishing, and other water-based activities. The exclusive properties along Lake Travis’ shoreline include spectacular hilltop estates and lavish lakefront resort-style residences, with boat slips and private docks allowing residents to make the most of this stunning waterfront setting.

Lake Travis covers a large area with several distinct communities on either side of it. From Spicewood and Briarcliff in the west to Hudson Bend, Volente, and Lower Basin in the east, all combine exclusivity and privacy with an energizing recreational setting. A plethora of striking master planned communities can be found within the area, giving homebuyers no shortage of desirable neighborhoods to call home. Lake Travis real estate’s architecture ranges from elegant European-influenced estates, distinctively Texan properties, to luxurious contemporary custom builds.

People & Lifestyle

The exclusive communities on either side of Lake Travis’ meandering course are ideal for those seeking an active outdoor lifestyle. Equestrian centers, marinas, waterfront restaurants, world-class country clubs, and first-class fitness facilities are all within easy reach of Central Austin. The vibe is intoxicatingly laid-back, with the feeling of being permanently on vacation.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

The tiered outdoor decks of The Oasis have been called “The Sunset Capital of Texas” for the captivating Lake Travis views they offer. Dine on Tex-Mex or seafood, enjoy “perfect margaritas,” and stay for live music in the evening on the Starlight Terrace. Hudson’s Hill Country is another great restaurant with outdoor patios and excellent views. First opening its doors as Hudson’s on the Bend in the 1980s, this Hill Country institution is famed for its delectable wild game dishes. Delicious meals and a range of outstanding amenities can also be enjoyed at Lake Travis resorts, Lakeway Inn & Resort and Miraval Austin. Both combine fine dining restaurants with exceptional spa and wellness treatments.

Things to Do

The Lake Travis shoreline contains a number of parks with fantastic views over the lake. Mansfield Dam Park has Lake Travis’ largest public boat ramp and a secluded swimming cove, along with areas for fishing and scuba diving. Hippie Hollow Park’s steep rocky shoreline is popular among swimmers and sunbathers. Access is restricted to those over 18 as Hippy Hollow is Texas’ only “clothing optional” public park. The sandy shoreline at Bob Wentz Park is popular spot for swimming, windsurfing, scuba diving, boating, and barbecues. The rugged terrain of Tom Hughes Park is another swimming hotspot, as well as a great place to watch the sunset.
