About Patti Boyd

David Boyd, retired from UT Austin. Patti Boyd, semi-retired from self-employment. We both have lived in Austin area for about 50 years, and have lived at this property since 1995.

Patti Boyd purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Patti Boyd chose Texas

It is incredibly beautiful, truly, and a very natural area. Austin seems to grow daily, but our place here, only 30 miles from downtown, feels a world away. It is very a peaceful, relaxing place to be, a real getaway from the hustle and bustle.

What makes this cabin unique

The view from the cabin is phenomenal. Sitting on the porch and relaxing in the swing or glider and enjoying the view of Cypress Creek canyon 120 feet below is a mind-altering experience. It really takes you out of yourself for a bit. If you're a bit adventurous, you can climb down the custom-built iron staircase and trail to an incredibly beautiful deck built on a boulder overlooking Cypress Creek. It feels very much like a giant treehouse, with the sound of the falling water running down below.

Awesome Views and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is an extremely nice and peaceful cabin away from the crowds. We stayed for three nights, which allowed us to fully explore the area. The cabin is located very close to Hamilton Pool and Westcave Preserve. Pedernales Falls is also not too far away. The cabin puts you within an hour of downtown Austin if you want to venture into the city.

David and Patti are wonderful hosts, and we definitely recommend you have the breakfast. Patti was extremely quick to answer any e-mails and questions. We will definitely be back in the future.

Incredible views with all the anemities

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay over the weekend of 8/26-8/28/2016. We received a break in the weather and enjoyed some cooler temperatures. The view of the hill country from the cabin is nothing short of spectacular. A creek resides down below from the cabin, and can be accessed using stairs near the cabin front door. You also have to hike a couple hundred meters from the bottom of the stairs to the creek, but the walk is worth it. The cabin itself had all the amenities you'd need: TV with Roku (to stream Netflix or Pandora, not that you'll be spending much time watching TV), full kitchen with utensils, and outdoor gas grill. There is a full bedroom on the ground floor and upstairs loft with bed and smaller day bed. We included breakfast with our stay and we were served delicious omelets with biscuits! You'll also enjoy the hummingbirds and the wildlife on the property such as goats and a turtle! David and Patti could not have been more accommodating and are very easy-going hosts who made us feel very comfortable during our stay. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

Peaceful & secluded couples getaway in the Texas Hill Country.

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful retreat! This property was everything we were looking for and more. The house was beautiful and kept neat and tidy. The views were incredible from every window in the house. I've never seen so many hummingbirds in my life! The house was fully equity with everything we could have possibly needed to cook, but we opted for a pizza from Carmella's, which was delicious and highly recommended! The hosts were wonderful. Their home sits just a short walk from the property but separated adequately for total privacy. There are 2 goats on the property, as well as a 100+ lb tortoise named Sammie! The owner was so sweet to let us meet Sammie and take pictures. The walk down to the creek was beautiful. Also, I highly recommend the home cooked breakfast if it is offered during your stay, it was delicious! Cheese and sundries tomatoe omelette wit. Farm fresh eggs, crunchy bacon, homemade biscuits and fresh Oj. We highly recommend this romantic getaway to all! We hope to return one day soon!

Recommendation: if you plan your stay 2 weeks+ in advance, go online and make reservations for Hamilton Pool. They were booked solid for 2 weeks during our last minute stay.

Peaceful getaway far from the crowds!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Cypress Creek retreat! The hosts were so nice and not intrusive. The cabin is quite nice! it was very thoughtfully decorated and had all we needed. We enjoyed the creek alot! We were the only people down there all weekend long and the water was beautiful! It is a pretty steep hike but doable. We loved the sunsets, hummingbirds, and the owners mini farm. I loved walking in the morning and passing no cars or people ! It was 2 miles to the front gate and back. I saw deer, turkey,hawks, and a fox ! We had reservations at Hamilton Pool and we were 5 minutes away. Don't miss the opportunity to visit Hamilton Pool, a true texas treasure! We also did Cypress valley canopy tour, it was about 40 minutes away . It was so much fun ! Bring your swimsuit to enjoyed the clear pond afterwards. There is more to do but relaxing was first on our list. Wifi connection was good and kept our daughter happy! We will be back!

Beautiful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location for a quiet and private "staycation." Although we live nearby in Austin, we felt like we were truly getting away from it all when staying at the Cypress Creek Retreat. Patti and David were excellent hosts: friendly and helpful as could be while still giving us plenty of privacy. Would definitely stay here again; in fact, I look forward to coming back for another getaway in the fall so I can enjoy cooler temps in this beautiful locale.
