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.

The cottage is so quaint and cozy. There were5 of us and it was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by David and introduced to the property. (My kids had to meet Sammy the tortoise, the dogs and goats first). The cottage was very clean! Once we got settled, we hiked down to the creek. It is definitely hiking. ( I would highly recommend bringing junky gym shoes for this purpose, also grab a walking stick from the deck, it will help). The walk to the creek was fun and rewarding when you get to the bottom. My son loved fishing and my girls enjoyed walking thru the creek.

We brought food with us to the cottage since we knew we didn't want to venture out to eat. Plan ahead if that's your plan - there isn't anything too close.

The starry night sky was a great end to our day. Of course, with night brings out snakes and scorpions. Didn't see any snakes, but did see a few scorpions.

Waking up at sunrise and sitting on the deck while was watching the hummingbirds was so peaceful.

It was a perfect little get away for my family, next time we will stay at least 2 days.

The place was a little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Mr. & Mrs. Boyd are the best hosts. I took my grandchildren and they loved Sammi, the tortoise, the goats and chickens. We all enjoyed the scenery and the hummingbirds. It is the ideal place for a couple getaway and I can't wait to go back with an adult and take in a winery or two. We visited Hamilton Pool and highly recommend it. The Boyd's suggested Carmela's Restaurant and we feasted on great Italian food from Carmela's every night we were there.

The 3 R's: Relax, Refuel, Reconnect!

  • 5 of 5

This place was EVERYTHING I hoped it would be. We set foot on the property and never left until checkout time. Three dear girlfriends needed a place to just relax. We spent most of our time on the porch watching the hummingbirds, listening to other birds, and enjoying the evening performance by the lightening bugs. We needed to refuel. The gorgeous surroundings, a walk to the creek, a wonderful night's sleep and the greatest breakfast possible did the trick. We were able to reconnect in a beautiful way. That can happen when you are uninterrupted, inspired and relaxed. Patti and David made us feel so welcome and were great hosts. As I was leaving I told Patti, "I WILL be back!" I've stayed in many places in this great state of ours, but this place tops them all!

Quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

We loved the stay. Peaceful, quiet, and wonderful scenery. The hummingbirds were everywhere and a delight to see and hear their wings that sounded like little drums. We could hear the water that sounded like a rushing river way down in the valley. Turkeys coming down out of their roost in the early morning. The house was terrific. Clean and comfortable. We would definitely want to stay there again if we are in the area. Thank you for a great stay!
