House on the Hill
Visitors to House on the Hill are in awe as they walk through our beautiful gardens and enter the majestic main facility. Many describe it as magical. House on the Hill commands spectacular Hill Country views from walls of glass, balconies and wrap around decks This stunning 10 acre estate is conveniently located off Bee Caves Road near Loop 360 is a unique setting for your wedding, reception, rehearsal dinner and guest lodging. We can hold 150 people for your event.
The main facility with its dramatic event room and the nearby cottages were designed by local artist and architect Bill Hoey. They feature spacious rooms with vaulted cedar ceilings, wood paneling and Saltillo tile floors. The southwestern style architecture and lovely gardens complement both indoor and/or outdoor festivities. A waterfall is a beautiful backdrop for an outdoor wedding and a large covered outdoor pavilion with Mexican lights provides a festive setting for outdoor dancing and seating. A pool and a pond add to the tranquility of the setting.
House on the Hill is unique in that we provide a weekend retreat for family and friends to gather and share your special occasion. Our weekend package begins at 4pm on Friday and ends at noon on Sunday. You can add an additional night for $450 each. We can accommodate 20 people overnight in our four bedrooms and three cottages. Most people will host their rehearsal and rehearsal dinner on the estate on Friday, the wedding and reception on Saturday and sometimes a Sunday brunch. BUT what makes House on the Hill special is that it is your space during the rental period to do as you please. Not only does this allow you to customize you own event/s but it allows you to stay within your budget. You can keep it simple or plan for something more lavish – the setting is what will set it apart and make it memorable.
We provide tables and chairs and a large, beautiful kitchen that can accommodate your overnight guests. You can choose your own caterer and bring in your own beverages. And if you need help – we are there to provide you with support.
House on the Hill also features a six hour rental on Sunday with the option of adding an overnight stay. It’s just as beautiful on a Sunday but the price can’t be beat. Weekday rentals are also available.
Our wedding could not have been more perfect! We rented the venue Thursday through Sunday. The overnight lodging was very accommodating for all of our out of town guests. This venue is a great option for a DIY bride! Our guests had a wonderful time and continuously commented on how beautiful the venue is. We accommodated approximately 75 guests and there was plenty of room. We had such an amazing time. Lynn and Pandora were readily available to answer all questions. They were also great at offering suggestions on setup ideas. I definitely recommend this venue!! You and your guests will feel right at home and make beautiful memories! Wedding: February 27, 2016
I loveeeeed our wedding! Our wedding was amazing. I wish I could relive the day over and over. There is so much space at this venue that it never feels crowded. We really didn’t even need much decorating because the venue is so beautiful on its own. Our wedding had only about 100 guests, but it can hold up to 150. We had both the ceremony and reception here, we also chose to add the cottages to our contract. Our guests were able to have fun all day and night, and a place to stay if they had had a little too much fun. Lynn and Pandora were both so helpful with everything. I would highly recommend House On The Hill for any occasion. Wedding: 11/8/2015
We loved house on the hill! My fiancé and I imagined a picturesque outdoor hill country wedding, and house on the hill far exceeded our expectations. We loved being able to provide overnight accommodations to our friends and family who came from out of town. The waterfall at the alter provided the perfect serene atmosphere for the ceremony and looks stunning when lit up at night. We were able to fit a 10 piece band under the outside pavilion and the intimate dance floor had the party going late into the night. The venue has several balconies with fantastic hill country views along with patios and decks that provided great spaces for different groups to hang out. They recently got new chairs that looked great and saved us the money and hassle of renting our own. All of our guests commented on how beautiful everything was and we highly recommend House on The Hill for your wedding. Wedding: 10/18/2015
Pictures don’t do this place justice! Me and my wife happen to stumble on this place with pure luck when trying to choose a venue for our wedding. We wanted a venue that would allow for an inside/outside event; but also allow us to do our own thing in regards to vendors and set up. Lynn is an amazing event manager! Anything and everything we needed she was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the whole process from start to finish. Everything from the view, to the grounds, and even the rustic type of feel the cabins have were just simply beautiful. You can do so many things and create so many different set ups there with how much space you have to host your friends and family. In a nutshell, I do not think there is a better venue in Austin that allows so much freedom, while still be very affordable and having such a beautiful property. This venue is a must for anyone looking into an indoor/outdoor wedding! Wedding: 8/16/2015
