The Vista is located on 4 acres of one of Austin's most beautiful hills. The Vista's deck with its three-tiered fountain area have a gorgeous view of the surrounding Hill Country by day and spectacular views of Austin's city lights by night. The grounds contain several waterfalls and fountains with a wooden bridge with iron arches. Stone arches and a large wooden gazebo complete the yard. The 100-year-old and European style cottage with its fishpond, stone fireplaces, arbors and large iron candelabras add a romantic ambiance. The covered dance floor has unique lighting and statues to make the perfect party area. The more formal Guest House, with crystal chandeliers and columns lends itself to the versatility of the Vista. Beside the Grand Room, there are private dressing rooms for the Bride and Groom. The Main House and pool are available by special request and pricing.
