Austin Neighborhoods: Lakeway

It’s been over three years since we profiled the Austin suburb of Lakeway, one of the fastest growing areas of the Austin metro.  Lakeway is 24 miles west of downtown Austin and is located west of 620, north of highway 71 on the eastern shore of Lake Travis.  

Lakeway was first developed in the early 1960’s and was incorporated in 1974.  Lakeway’s population was 13,168 as of 2013.  It is popular with those who enjoy access to the lake and the feel of living in the country while still being able to commute into Austin.

Children residing in Lakeway attend schools in the popular Lake Travis Independent School District.  Pre-K through fifth graders go to Lakeway Elementary School, Serene Hills Elementary School, or Lake Travis Elementary School.  

Sixth through eighth graders attend Hudson Bend Middle School and ninth through twelfth graders go to Lake Travis High School.  

For dining and entertainment, there are lots of options in the Lakeway area.  The League Kitchen and Tavern serves tasty pub grub, has a fantastic brunch menu, and extensive drink options.  

High Five has a bowling alley, arcade, laser tag, plus bar food and drinks.  A great time for everyone in the family, and smaller and easier to navigate than Main Event or Dave and Buster’s.

Café Lago serves breakfast, sandwiches, salads, and soups in a relaxed casual atmosphere.  The coffee is delicious and served by friendly counter staff.  

Looking for entertainment?  TexArts has live theater performances and also a school to learn to act, sing, and dance!

When it comes to shopping, Lakeway has some pretty cool places; no need to drive all the way into Austin!  Point of Origin has been in Lakeway since 1993 and is a place where you can get unique gifts for everyone on your list (including yourself).  They even have free gift wrapping!

Magpie Blossom Boutique is a florist shop with gifts as well!  Their talented florist will whip up an arrangement that will impress any recipient.

There are lots of great apartments in and near Lakeway, many with amazing views.  Mansions at Lakeway is surrounded by the Hill Country and is just a few miles from Lake Travis.  The community has social events for residents, including catered brunches and socials, a game room and billiards, and a Starbucks Wi-Fi Cafe.  The one to two bedroom apartments feature available garages, tall windows, full size washer and dryer connections, available jetted jacuzzi tubs, and nine to ten foot ceilings.

Madrone Phase II is hill country living at its most luxurious.  Located on 70 acres in a nature preserve, their one, two, and three bedroom apartments have attached and detached garages and private backyards available, granite counters in the kitchen and bathroom, wood style flooring, and washer and dryers included.  Amenities include a European Style Pool complete with sunning ledge, fire pit retreat, community living room, and social center with billiards, game table, and media center.  

The recently renovated Meritage at Steiner Ranch apartments are available in one to four bedroom floorplans and feature ten-foot ceilings, crown molding, and gourmet kitchens with stone counters and kitchen islands.  They have a bark park, gorgeous indoor swimming pool with spa, plus outdoor pool, a sauna, fitness center with TRX equipment, game room with billiards and a wine cellar!
