The Hill House Austin - Country simple with an elegant, yet homey style. The Hill House gives you the best of two worlds - an amazing, relaxed retreat so close to downtown Austin and still very accessible to popular Hill Country attractions and wedding venues.
As you drive into this property, cross Bear Creek and come up the hill, you'll see why our guests love this place - a beautiful, relaxed retreat just minutes from downtown Austin - and only 5 minutes to the beginning of the Texas Hill Country Wine Trail. And 5 minutes to the Salt Lick Restaurant and Fall Creek Vineyards.
The wide stone walk in front of the house leads to the 50' wide front porch. At the end of the porch is a fountain made of a matching pair of gristmill stones used in the early 1800's to capture the water flow energy of Bear Creek to grind grain for area farmers. These mill stones were found half-buried less than a hundred yards from the fountain they now create. It's amazing the stones have stayed together all these years. Have breakfast, lunch, dinner or cocktails on the porch by this fountain and enjoy the view of this horse farm.
The tall hand made cypress front doors lead you into open, airy living spaces.
The deck is a few steps from the kitchen door and overlooks Bear Creek and is perfect for morning coffee and evening conversations. A large fire pit in the back yard is a guest favorite.
There are many outdoor spaces to relax and enjoy the expansive Texas sky - without the lights of the city, star gazing is great. There are nature trails and Spring Hollow Creek at the back of property. The large, wooded hill above this creek is a challenging hike up to a great view of this area.
