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.

Nice cabin in the hill country, close to swimming areas, hiking areas and Austin TX

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was great and had most amenities: kitchen utensils, Netflix and Internet connection. Cypress Creek is just below the cabin on a steep stairwell, creek was very beautiful. Cabin is very close to several hiking and swimming areas, river parks (Hamilton Pool) and several LCR parks that allow dogs on and off leash. River frontage and hiking access below the cabin was only 200 feet, so you will need to drive down the road for longer hikes. Lots of birds with the feeders and bird bath outside cabin as well as outdoor seating and a great hill country view. Other amenities included ping pong table, farm animals and a very cool tortoise. Easy to drive into Austin for dinner or for sightseeing. David and Patty were great hosts.

We had a great time staying at Cypress Creek. David and Patti were so nice! The house is beautiful and we loved the peace & quiet. Stay more than one night if you go. We wish we had.

Peaceful retreat getaway, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfectly wonderful. We loved our hike down to the creek, hearing the water babbling while having morning coffee on the porch and the amazingly convenient location to all the outdoor activities we were wanting to do. Pedernales Falls State Park, Hamilton Pool, and Reimers Ranch Park are so close and we had the best time exploring around the area while having a quiet retreat to retire to in the evenings. A huge amazing bonus was that we could bring our small dog with us, she's a part of the family. The Boyd's were wonderful hosts with just the perfect amount of privacy and helpfulness. The house is very comfortable and quiet. Beautiful views. Love, love, love the creek on their property and fabulous overlook deck. We will definitely be back! Thank you Patti and David!
