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 Hammett's Crossing

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.

Beautiful place and Gracious Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I really loved this place, it was the perfect place for us. The house set on the edge of a canyon, with the river down below and it was stunning.

It was quiet and peaceful, but within a central location and close to many things to see and do, however I would have loved to have had the time to just stay there and enjoy the beauty.

We ordered the breakfast one morning, which they deliver too your cabin and it was exceptional , best biscuits I've ever ate.

There are many wineries , Olive oil companies, restaurants, and shopping within 10 to 20 miles.

Plus lots of hiking options, and beautiful country and rivers.

I will definitely be going back, one of my favorite places I have ever stayed!

Thanks David and Patti.
