Three unique Craftsman-designed homes are located across the river from downtown Austin on a beautiful wooded lot in one of Austin's most desirable neighborhoods, Travis Heights. Walk or bike to major parks, great restaurants in the SoCo District, or even downtown to the fun sixth street music district.
The houses were designed, built and decorated by the owner artists Wolf Sittler and Charlotte Bell. Check the website for links to their work.
These non-smoking homes have sunny rooms, well appointed kitchens, hardwood floors, patios and lots of windows looking out onto the backyard forest greenbelt. Each house has one bedroom. The beds are comfortable with 100% cotton sheets. Kitchens have all amenities including coffee and basics. Our newest accomidation is the Tree-cycle which is a tiny house. Look at the photos and then contact us for more information.
They have the feel of the country but are within minutes of the city center and 15 minutes to the Austin Bergstrom airport.
Located on Kenwood Ave: a few blocks south of Riverside Dr. between Congress Ave. and I 35
Wolf Sittler and Charlotte Bell are both artists. Wolf, a furniture maker, has added details through out the houses. Spalted pecan kitchen cabinets and hand made wood furniture add charm and warmth. Charlotte's photographs grace the walls. The house has all the touches that artists provide plus a well stocked kitchen.
They also have a home in San Miguel de Allende listed on VRBO.
Charlotte Bell purchased this house in 1980
Austin is the most interesting and young cities in Texas filled with outdoor activities and festivals. The restaurants and shops, near the house, are extra ordinary. In 3 blocks you are on the hike and bike trail with miles of lovely paths.
You will be close to everything. The house is in a quiet wooded location but you are minutes from I35 which will take you to the lakes or to the airport. But most people do not travel further than a few minutes from the house since so much is available in the area near downtown.
There are bikes to use as well as a washer and dryer.
This one of the most wonderful places that I have ever stayed. The house is charming, super clean and located minutes from downtown and great restaruants. Plus it look like you are in the middle of the country from all the beautiful windows.
We stayed in this accommodation for three weeks - a quiet cozy cottage feel that is surprisingly close to the night action of sixth and SOCO and three minutes to the interstate to jump on the many golf courses in the area. The nights were chilly in Jan so the extra blankets, house coats and portable heater were a very nice touch! The rooms were very clean, comfortable linens and towels. While a gourmet dinner may be a challenge, the kitchen was equipped for daily cooking. The accordion door to the bathroom does not afford much privacy. We enjoyed many long walks around Lady Bird lake, Hamilton pool and Barton Springs...in between great golf, restaurants and duelling piano bars!
This is a lovely little place, perfect for a couple. It is well equipped and thoughtfully put together - large, windows overlook lovely trees and bring in beautiful light. It is situated in a great neighborhood walking distance to shops and restaurants. We highly recommend it!
Another thing worth mentioning is we had a mixup on the dates we would be there. Char thought we were staying longer than we were due to my original inquiry which I later adjusted. When i brought this to her attention, it was no problem whatsoever. Our bill was adjusted accordingly - no issue at all. We appreciated that kind of graciousness!
The Forest Retreat was a lovely little cottage in a wooded area in Travis Heights, Austin ,Tx. It's centrally located in a funky cool neighborhood. Walking distance from many desirable locations. We had a great time over the 4th of July holiday.
We stayed in the guest house in June and had a wonderful time. It's close to EVERYTHING, clean, well-equipped with everything you might need and Charlotte and Wolf are lovely hosts. We couldn't have been happier. Highly recommended place to stay!
We are 9 blocks from the popular SOCO district with fabulous restaurants and fun Shoppping.
