My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights with our two dogs and enjoyed every minute. We had planned to see more of Austin, but we found it hard to leave once we arrived. The atmosphere is hill country charm and cozy. The cottage is nestled in a grove of oaks, near the top of hill along the side of the large property. It has a private gated walkway leading past the chicken coop to the inner garden. From there you’ll step onto the roomy, covered porch.
Inside you’ll find a well equipped kitchen with a fridge and stove. Fresh eggs were waiting for us and coffee with a French press. We like to cook so we dined in every night. There are Pots, pans, plates, tools, knives etc. The Local HEB is only 10 minutes away. Take a look through the cabinets and you’ll find the essential condiments as well.
There is a flat screen TV, wireless internet; a queen size bed, a sofa, small work and dining table; also, there is a nice patio table on the deck. The bathroom is fully tiled and roomy with a large walk in shower. Nice fixtures for the vanity sink. The outside shed has a washer dryer. We really didn’t need anything. We sipped our wine in the quiet evenings and enjoyed the solitude.
We took the dogs walking through the Commons Ford Park 5 minutes away. It is a wildlife preserve park along the riverside with winding trails for biking or jogging. There were plenty of deer and birds.
Our host Claudia was gracious and there to greet us and show us the amenities. Before we departed we toured her pottery studio. You’ll find examples of her colorful art in the bathroom tiles, the kitchen dishes, and in statues on the property.
It is a small but well planned space. If you want to get away from it all and still be 20 minutes from downtown. This is the place!
