What a wonderful and romantic place to spend a few days. The owners/host/staff are all outstanding, helpful and friendly, the breakfasts are gourmet and the Saturday night dinner with wine pairing delicious. With their own personal chef they were easily able to accommodate our request for gluten free meals. We stayed in the San Gabriel which is right by the wonderful pool, a must in the summer in Texas. We hope to visit again in the Fall. Highly recommended.
We were blown away by the service we received last weekend. Breakfast was a huge highlight as we received gourmet caliber food every morning. The staff was amazing and hospitable. Thank you for helping us get away for a couple days and relax. We will definitely be back. Christys
Austin's Inn at Pearl Street is truly a hidden gem near downtown Austin. My wife and I spent a few much-needed days there as a base for exploring various points of interest. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and efficient. The room was cozy and quiet, and the grounds were impeccably maintained. We'll definitely return again and again. Many thanks to the staff for such a relaxing visit.
The staff was extraordinary, even Kevin the Peacock was friendly, excellent food, massages were excellent(would be nice if they offered Thai) rooms na dviews were amazing nicer than some of the 5 star hotels we have stayed at, pool, hot tub, and fire pit were wonderful. Loved the two person shower. Planning on returning soon. Janine and Bob
This was our first time to stay at The Cove BnB but it won't be our last. We had a great time enjoying this wonderful property. The private boat ramp and dock really set this place apart from other options on Lake Travis. The Beds are super comfy, the rooms are great, the location can't be beat. We can't wait for our next stay! Thanks!
I try to pick B&B that gives me local feeling, ambiance, and more of a home stay than a hotel room. While the quality of the B & B is fine the interaction and service is minimal. Very disappointed with lack of hot breakfast.
We spent a wonderful weekend at GrandAnne's On The Lake and Volente Beach Water Park! Anne was warm and welcoming and the B and B was much larger and prettier than I envisioned from the photos. The large yard was super for the 4 boys to run and play in. The views from the balcony and deck were spectacular! Relaxing, relaxing! We are already talking about our next trip down to visit the Austin cousins and staying at GrandAnne's! Thank you, Anne! You were a fabulous hostess!
I can see why Blair House is rated so high. It is a wonderful place to relax & commune with nature or go into town for quality shopping. The staff & management are terrific! The food is delicious & presented so well. Looking forward to my next visit!
Stayed in a cottage from Tuesday through Friday morning. Accommodations were very comfortable and breakfasts were superb . We really enjoyed the area and took in some of the local sites and eats. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a very relaxing get away.
We came for our babymoon and were very pleased! Our room was awesome (Wallace Room) and private and clean. We did a lot of relaxing, reading, and eating. We'd recommend this place for a super chill weekend with beautiful scenery and romantic ambiance.
We stayed in the French Room which was just as pictured. The only negative was the claw foot tub was small for my husband to shower. The receptionist was informative and gave a great tour. They offered us a beverage upon arrival and we enjoyed sitting outside at night with the lights.
My wife and I attended a training seminar here and we stayed in a tiny house for the first time in my life. The tiny house that we stayed in was indeed tiny. It was very well decorated but a bit claustrophobic for me. The unit had a plumbing problem but the inn keeper Barrett, moved us into to another unit. We received excellent service and care while at this inn. I highly recommend this place.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for our first trip to Austin and it was beautiful. The themed rooms are so fun, we stayed in the french room and the clawfoot tub was divine. My favorite parts were the lit garden at night which was very romantic. And Pearl the calico cat mascot she was a very sweet hostess.
We had a wonderful stay at this small bed and breakfast, The innkeepers provided us with a list of restaurants we thoroughly enjoyed during our stay. The Inn is quiet and quaint with gorgeous grounds and trees that are hundreds of years old. Breakfast was delicious and the service was excellent! We highly recommend The Fairview Inn! Be sure to enjoy the forch porch!
We've stayed in almost every room and each one has its own distinctive charm! Very cozy, staff is very helpful, breakfast is perfect. Very convenient to campus and sorority and frat houses.
Thank you for a lovely getaway! Casa del Sol sits on a beautiful property with an outstanding view. My husband and I stayed here on our trip to Austin. It was a nice, quiet place away from downtown where we could spend our evenings. The fruit and pastries for breakfast were great! There were also games and movies for when we had some downtime. We look forward to another stay here in the future!
Lovely Bed & Breakfast..very comfortable and location close to all things downtown. Although dining wasn't available except for a continental breakfast it was delicious & enough. Would stay here again & recommend it to others. A gem in downtown Austin!
One of our favorite places to stay! The staff are above average and the rooms could not be cleaner! Maybe there is a new chef in town but the food was not as it had been...less than our expectations of prior experiences there.
This is a great place to go for a romantic getaway or to just relax. The room was beautiful and the private hot tub was incredible!! I would definitely recommend this place for anyone!! Ashley and Shari Wall
Austin est la capitale de l’État du Texas. Elle est située sur la rivière Colorado entre les lacs Travis, Austin, et Lady Bird. On y trouve les sièges sociaux ou des usines de grandes entreprises telles que Apple, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, et Texas Instruments.
Austin est également le siège de plusieurs universités, dont l’énorme campus principal de l’Université du Texas.
Mais, tout ceci ne doit pas faire oublier qu’à l’origine, Austin était un terrain de chasse de bisons pour les Indiens Tonkawa. Certes, il reste peu aujourd’hui de traces de cette époque, mais Austin a tout de même conservé une facette naturelle avec ses voies navigables, ses ceintures vertes et ses terrains laissés vacants qui donnent au paysage de belles nuances vertes. Il est possible de profiter de cette merveilleuse beauté en toute saison, car le climat à Austin est doux en tout temps de l’année. Les promenades sur le bord de la rivière sont à mettre au programme de chacune des journées que vous passerez ici, le matin en quittant votre chambre d’hôte à Austin ou le soir en y retournant, profitez de ces doux moments de détente.
Par ailleurs, la ville connait un dynamisme particulier dans le domaine musical qui se traduit très clairement dans son slogan officiel : « Austin, la capitale de la musique live du monde ». Tout est dit! Concrètement, c’est le festival South by Southwest, aussi appelé SXSW, qui existe depuis 1987 qui attire de nombreux musiciens chaque année. Musique, cinéma et nouvelles technologies sont au programme de cet événement unique en son genre. Il devient un peu plus chaque année non seulement le rendez-vous des artistes alternatifs, mais également celui des « geeks » du monde entier. La réservation d’un bed & breakfast à Austin durant le SXSW est un peu plus ardue que d’habitude. Si vous prévoyez venir à cette période de l’année, réservez de bonne heure.
Mais, que mangerez-vous durant les concerts du SXSW ou tout simplement en visitant la ville? De la « soul food » et de la viande cuite au barbecue. La première provient de la communauté afro-américaine du Texas et le second est dû à la place importante qu’occupe l’élevage dans cette région des États-Unis. Oui, n’oublions tout de même pas que c’est du Texas que viennent les plus célèbres cow-boys. Suivez leurs traces et venez visiter Austin lors de vos prochaines vacances aux États-Unis.
Et si vous avez manqué Lance Armstrong à Paris lors de l’arrivée des sept Tours de France qu’il a remportés, peut-être le croiserez-vous à Austin, car il y est chez lui!
