We LOVED this place!! We live in an Austin suburb & my husband surprised me with an overnight birthday getaway into Austin & THANKFULLY he found Strickland Arms! This mansion is in the middle of a quiet neighborhood and it truly is a hidden paradise. We were the only guests staying in the B&B (it was a Thursday night), and it really felt like we were staying at a rich friend's house. Barbara was so kind & accommodating. The room (Stephanie) was wonderful - very cool AC, extra pillows, firm but VERY comfortable king bed, etc...
The grounds were incredible! We went to sushi dinner and improv show less than 5 minutes from the B&B & came back for a late night swim in the pool & dip in the hot tub. It was so serene and romantic. The next morning, I drank coffee on the swing on the stunning wrap around porch. Breakfast (eggs how you like em, biscuits, fruit, & muffins) was wonderful, and then we relaxed in the pool the rest of the morning into the afternoon.
We fell so in love with this place that we will be back every year for my birthday. We couldn't recommend it enough!More
