I stumbled upon this place while surfing the Internet looking for a weekend getaway to celebrate my partner’s 50th birthday. The reviews given were all positive and the description of the place sounded like a winner. And it was! We arrived on Friday and were very pleasantly surprised to find a clean, well-maintained property right on the lake. The rooms... More

We've stayed twice at Painted Sky Inn, the most recently July 4-7, 2012. Painted Sky Inn is located on a cove of Lake Buchanan in a quiet, private neighborhood. We had a great July 4th stay. Even with the severe drought in central Texas, Lake Buchanan has plenty of water for boating and other fun. You can walk from your... More

We have awesome neighbors here and we so appreciate you allowing us to be your overflow space for your family gathering. We had many neighbors come by during the remodel process telling us that they would not let their family stay at the old place due to it's condition. Everyone has been very excited about the transformation of the property... More

This place is a Texas Gem just outside Austin. You really need to check it out. Comfortable updated rooms, and an owner host who just can't be beat. Prices are exceptionally reasonable. If you want a getaway in TX, this is it.

My Husband and I spent Thanksgiving eve at this lovely Inn, and it was a wonderful experience. The rooms are refreshingly simple, clean and have a zen-like quality to them.

We just spent two nights with Denise at her Painted Sky Inn---wonderful!! It's a great spot on the lake and her newly remodeled inn made us feel right at home. We went there for a mountain biking weekend (excellent riding close by) and were very, very glad that we stayed there. We will be back with friends again! Thanks Denise!!
