Bed and Breakfast

La Villa Vista takes its guests away from what they think of Austin and shows them a side of the Central Texas region many do not realize exists. Positioned atop the rolling green Texas Hill Country that surrounds the natural wonder of Lake Travis, La Villa Vista’s views are reminiscent of those along the Greek Mediterranean coast. This hillside mansion includes gorgeous tiled floors plus a pool that overlooks the lake and is filled with natural light throughout the day. The bed and breakfast is only a 30-minute, scenic drive away from Downtown Austin, but is far enough from the city lights that guests get to enjoy an incredible view of the stars at night.
Described as a “Western zen” bed and breakfast, Casa del Sol is secluded in a cozy corner of Texas Hill Country. With a pool deck that includes a swimming pool and two Jacuzzis overlooking Lake Travis, the atmosphere will invite you to relax. Lodging options here include four uniquely designed bedrooms and a restored 1960s Airstream trailer. Once you’ve unwound with a morning in the hills, check out Austin’s Downtown, which is only 30 minutes away by car.
Located in the historic Old West Austin neighborhood, Brava House Bed and Breakfast provides guests with a quiet stay in the middle of the city. The five rooms span from snug rooms to larger suites, each with beautifully finished wooden floors, high ceilings and private baths. Continental breakfast is served daily between Monday and Friday, and a full breakfast is delivered to guests on Saturday and Sunday. The hosts will even bring you breakfast in bed for an added fee. Head outside and take a scenic stroll around the neighborhood and make your way downtown to see what Austin is all about.
Conveniently located off South Congress Avenue, the Park Lane Guest House is a unique, small home that boasts a connection with its natural environment. The bed and breakfast features four private cottages, each solar-powered and with organic, handmade beds. Take a dip or relax near the natural pool at the center of the grounds that looks like a smaller version of Austin’s famous Barton Springs Pool. The Park Lane Guest House also offers a daily cooked-to-order vegetarian breakfast.
This vintage bed and breakfast is positioned right between Austin’s Downtown (a 15-minute walk south) and the University of Texas campus and brings guests 13 ornate, elegant rooms arranged over three floors. Special amenities include massage therapy, breakfast in bed, limousine service and carriage rides. The neighborhood around Austin’s Inn at Pearl Street offers guests the best shopping, restaurants and attractions that Austin has to offer.
