There are great places and events to visit all around this area, all times of the year. From SXSW, Austin Film Festival, Formula One Racing, Various Universities, The Texas Hill Country, Amazing Golf Courses within minutes and many other activities.

What makes this cottage unique

Watching the amazing sunsets and sunrises from the decks is memorable and just breathtaking. The value you receive from a traditional hotel is one main reason to book this property. At less than the cost of a single room in most hotels, you will have a fully detached, well decorated home with covered, secured parking along with privacy and superior comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am sorry it’s taken so long to respond.

We had a great time. Your home is lovely, the dogs playful, and the views from the decks relaxing.

We hope to stay with you when next we come to Austin.

We have told some of our friends that they should check with you when they travel to the Austin area.

All the best,

Peaceful, home in the countryside

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Upside Down House for two weeks over the Christmas period. All communication, both before and during our stay, was answered promptly and efficiently. Leslie was waiting to meet me and show me around the cottage exactly as arranged. I was also introduced to Karma, her large but very gentle dog! The cottage was extremely well equipped and everything we needed was right at hand. We both slept really well on the super comfy beds, enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside. We also loved the night skies, star gazing unspoilt by light pollution.

Thank you, Leslie for the use of your cottage. I will be in touch next time we are visiting relatives in Georgetown.

Home Away again!

  • 5 of 5

We came back to what our grandsons call “the ranch” again for 2 weeks in May, 2015. Our 8th visit! The peace and quiet were once again welcome every day after busy family activities. We enjoyed the new outdoor seating arrangements and the expanded pool setting. This IS our home away from home and we are already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you, Leslie, for making us comfortable and at home once again.

Property is surrounded by farm land and farm animals. Enjoy peace and tranquility. The home itself has everything you'll need for a home feel away from home. Lots of closet space for your bags, great kitchen and appliances whirlpool bath comfy beds! The pool area is wonderful and fenced off in case you have little ones. We had a lovely time! The home is situated perfectly between a few small towns and the Austin/round rock area.

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Leslie, thank you so much for this wonderful stay. We came to Texas Hill Country to visit good friends in Hutto. It was the first time we were away from home for almost three weeks and weren't homesick for a single day because your cottage is really a home away from home. You were always there for us when we had a question or needed something. The unit has all necessities and much more. We enjoyed the pool a lot. It is so quiet on the property. We loved the sunrises and sunsets, the horses and donkey, cows and chickens, Karma.

Everything was a described, no matter if it was the unit, the property, things to do, ... Stores, restaurants, activities, etc. can be reached with a car within minutes.

Our friends came to visit us and fell in love with the farm. When their family comes to visit they would like them to stay here. And we definitely would like to stay here, again on our next trip to Texas. We already miss the the farm.

Simply Perfect...

  • 5 of 5

Mike, my husband, is so good at selecting just the right home for the right occasion. While staying in Hutto and visiting family and grandchildren, this was a wonderful "home away from home" for us to arrive at every evening. Just the right size...the fireplace was perfect for the cold weather...loved being on a farm....watching the sunrise every morning. I felt very safe and Leslie attended to all of my needs. Loved being welcomed by Karma in the evenings! And my granddaughters visit was a treat! Thank you, Leslie for being just an outstanding hostess. I am so glad to know you are in Hutto! And thank you for sending the things I left behind! Would recommend your home and would stay again!
