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.

So. Much. Nature.
We stayed here early in June, hot and dry... We were totally overwhelmed by the smell of Juniper, so amazing! The nature is literally surrounding this cabin! We hiked down to the deck and creek for some fishing, we sat on the porch glider and watched the hummingbirds for hours! We visited Hamilton pool (with a reservation) and Riemers preserve for access to the Pedernales River. Both of those attractions are 10 minutes away! We also did a few other things at a farther distance, and loved all of it! David and Patti are the caretakers and administrators of the cabin, and in a lot of ways it felt like we were visiting family! The cabin has a lot of home-y touches that you don't see in corporate owned places. We had no problems! The bed and cupboards were clean and pest free, the bathroom was clean and well stocked! We had a few crickets and spiders who worked their way in, but that was no problem, and totally to be expected when you are surrounded by such living nature! Our daughter also loved the dogs and goats and tortoise, we visited them daily!
Probably one of the most beautiful properties in Hill Country!
The creek and woods surrounding are magical. I've stayed here 3 times now and adore it.
This is a great property. Charming and delightful cabin which was clean and had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. Standing on the porch and looking out at the amazing view of the Texas hill country was exactly what I needed for my vacation from city living. David and Patti were friendly and helpful owners. I highly recommend and hope to go back soon.
Just the get away we were looking for. Definitely going back in the future!
A pleasant surprise
I surprised my husband with an overnight stay at this beautiful Austin stone cottage outside of Austin. We explored the beautiful property, enjoyed an amazing breakfast, and hiked at nearby Hamilton pool. My only regret is that we couldn’t stay longer!
Great views; beautiful cabin!
Great cabin! So glad we found this place! Beautiful scenery, great hiking, wonderful hosts! You will not be disappointed! Just don’t book it when I want it! 😜
Hamilton Pool Park is 2 miles and Reimers Ranch Park is 3 miles. We are about 30 minutes from the world famous Salt Lick Barbeque in Driftwood. Fredericksburg is about 1 hour away with many wineries along the way, the closest of which is one-half mile away from our gate.
