Keith and Sheila wish you a warm welcome to the Tram House! Keith is a financial planner who, when he’s not at work helping one of his clients plan for a financial future, can be found on his boat on Lake Travis. Sheila is a technical writer for an Orthopedic Manufacturer who also enjoys boating and travelling with her husband. Both Keith and Sheila are very active in the Comanche Trail Community Association that oversees the lakeside community in which their beloved Tram House is located.
Ketih purchased this House in 2005
Why Ketih chose Comanche Trail
“We originally bought our home because we wanted to live close to the lake,” explains Keith. While the Tram House is their primary residence, in order to “share the beauty of waking up to the lake every day,” Keith and Sheila often reside in the garage apartment that is located on the premises and rent out the main house. It works out well for them as they are often away on travelling adventures, or spending the weekends on the lake in their cabin cruiser, “Lady Luck.” Since moving into their unique home in 2005, Keith and Sheila have discovered many pleasures beyond what originally drew them in: Sunday drives through the winding Hill Country, the myriad nearby attractions and eateries, and the tranquillity of being perched above it all. Their hope is for each of their visitors to love waking up to the lake, and to enjoy staying in the only home east of the Rocky Mountains that requires a tram to gain access!

Great property with plenty of natural light and beautiful views!
We had a fantastic stay here celebrating a birthday with family and pets. The hosts were very kind and accommodating. Plenty of privacy and the tram is an awesome feature! We explored the area during the day and had multiple options for dinner every night. Great value and will definitely return!
Wonderful location, excellent views and amazing home.
We had the best time during our stay at the Tram House for my wife's 40th birthday celebration. We enjoyed sitting on the back patio and watching the sunrise and sunset each day with one of the best views of the lake in the area.
The home was clean, very well appointed with lots of room for us (two couples). Sheila and Keith were wonderful with suggesting breakfast and dinner locations, as well as a place close by for an afternoon sailing cruise, Sail Austin. We didn't have enough time to grill on the patio and spend additional time at the house but will definitely next time.
We will definitely plan on staying at the home again soon.
We went for a long holiday weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the Tram House complete with a panoramic view of Lake Travis from the deck. The two master suites were beautiful, and we left feeling truly pampered. Keith, the owner, was charming! We will surely stay again.
Unique and beautiful place to stay!
Stayed a night for anniversary and brought our kids the next night. Had everything we needed and our kids loved the house so much they did not want to leave. Keith was awesome when my husband forgot his laptop and we had to drive all the way back. They had an opening so we just eneded up staying a third night! Such a convienient location to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping but when you are at the Tram house you still feel like you are away from it all! A little pricey but worth it just for the views!!
My husband and I booked the house for our vacation. He wanted a place with a view and couldn't have been happier with the one from this deck. We began and ended every day of our stay on the beautiful deck off of the living room. The house is beautifully appointed and luxurious on every level. Downtown Austin is only about a 25 minute drive and we also went to Fredericksburg and visited several wineries. Cooking in the kitchen was wonderful and convenient because everything we needed was available. There was an HEB and Target less than 10 minutes away which was awesome. Even though the temperatures pushed 100 every day we were there the deck was cool, comfortable and breezy in the evenings and was perfect for stargazing. We hope to visit again soon and would recommend this beautiful home to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay in the Austin area.
