The location of the B&B was very convenient to the sites in downtown Austin and quiet . We liked the neighborhood. The hostess, Barb was very helpful and friendly. There is beautiful new swimming pool in the back yard and a lovely wrap-around porch on the house. We found our

Hi! If you haven't heard back from them here, definitely call. I think they do ALL their bookings over the phone. They are a WONDERFUL older couple, and I think that's the means of communication they are most comfortable with :) Just wanted you to know they aren't ignoring you here! I hope you stay there - it's so wonderful!

"All beautiful and quiet."
"If you want a cooler room on the south side of the house, ask for Lady Stephanie. This room also has a suite as an option."

"If you want a bath tub, book early as that room seems to sell out fast."
"Sir David's Room just had a Queen bed, but it was so comfy and beautiful views of the garden yard and pool, highly recommend."
