Lakeway Homes For Sale
The City of Lakeway is home to over 100 northwest Austin-area neighborhoods near the shores of Lake Travis. Generally regarded as the range of land to the north of Lake Travis, west of RR 620, northwest of Bee Cave, and west of Highway 71, Lakeway is approximately 24 miles from Downtown Austin. Lakeway began with the construction of a 48-room hotel, the Lakeway Inn, which eventually became the Lakeway Resort and Spa, a 168-room full service resort. Ground for the original Inn was broken in October 1962, and the grand opening was July 12, 1963. Although originally established in the mid 1960’s, Lakeway is a “newer” community, with most of the homes and rapid growth occurring from 1994 to present.
Many of the homes in Lakeway are beautiful luxury homes and are surrounded by parks, greenbelts, and aquatic recreation facilities. Homes can range in size from 436 square feet to more than 9,100 square feet and can sell anywhere from the low $100s to $4 million. Some of the larger neighborhoods within Lakeway include Apache Shores, the Preserve at Lakeway, Reserve at Hudson Bend, and Flintrock.
Though Lakeway saw the start of its growth in the early 1990’s, most of the homes are more recent, with many larger homes built in the past decade.
Lakeway is in Northwest Austin. It is bound to the north by Lake Travis, sits to the west of RR 620, northwest of Bee Cave, and to the west of Highway 71.

Lakeway is 12 square miles, 13 percent of which is water.

The Canyonlands is the City of Lakeway’s newest park. It is a 20-acre tract named for the scenic canyon running through the property. This canyon is in the upper reaches of the Rough Hollow Cove, a major arm of Lake Travis. The scenery of the canyon from the overlooks is breathtaking, especially when the fall colors emerge. Friends of the Parks volunteers have built an access trail, a rim trail, and a trail into the canyon. The trail head to the Canyonlands is on the west side of Trophy Drive across from the Swim Center Park. Parking is available in the Swim Center Park parking lot. Entrance to Canyonlands is the .25 mile Access Trail, which crosses City and MUD property. Once on the Canyonlands property, the Rim Trail takes the hiker to the overlooks and vistas of the Canyon; the trail then descends into the Canyon.
