Tarrytown cottage description
Our luxurious spa amenities are available to you when you are staying in our private guest house. We are situated in a very central old Austin neighborhood in a forest of old oaks. You are close to University of Texas and Downtown Austin.
These gracious 3 rooms were built in 1936 and the quality throughout reflects that. Hardwood floors, tiled kitchen and bath, and sweet architectural charm and character make this feel like home. You may park off the street and have complete privacy to come and go as you please. All the furnishings and equipment are well chosen and well cared for.
If you have guests coming, they could stay on your sleeper sofa in the living room (there is a fee) or in the Bed and Breakfast (B&B) in the main house. We have three very private choices. One is a very luxurious private suite of Old World charm, with a massive fireplace, cathedral ceiling, and massage chair. Aother is a large room with a luxury shower, massage chair and foot massager. We also offer a third master suite upstairs, 582 sq. ft. with master bath and king size bed. It's a very romantic, luxurious suite which includes a screened in porch up in a sea of trees.
Come to the excitement of a big city with a small town feel to it. We are perfectly situated here to access all of Austin.

My yard man was due to pressure wash the patio the Tuesday she was here. He called in sick. It was done by Thursday, but the guest had left, without stating any problems to me until she was gone. She did not open her curtains or shutters so I guess it was dark. I have had happy guests for 10 years here. I keep it up the same way i always have. I did not bow to her threat to give me a bad review if I did not give her half her money back. She held a 6 night reservations for 6 weeks.

This is an unkempt property. Should not be listed on the VRBO site. Dark and dank. I stayed there recently and was very unhappy. Was so bad that I had to leave and find another place to stay. She said that she going out of business in a month so clealy is not putting any effort or money into keeping the property in good shape.

Charming vintage apartment for comfort lovers
Charming vintage apartment for comfort lovers
While my house undergoes renovation, I needed a place to stay, and found true comfort in this property. The owner maintains very high standards of cleanliness and order, while providing for the utmost in comfortable appointments. Pillows, linens, and kitchen furnishings are all first class. A true home away from home, and the location couldn't be more convenient. There is one flight of stairs which would make access difficult for some.

About the owner: I'm still adventuring and traveling the world, now that my children have grown, but I choose Austin for my base and my urban living. I seek elsewhere for nature and the skies that nourish me so. (This trapeze adventure took place here in Austin though.) I have a fine clan of like minded people whom I love to spend time with here. I came here because someone in our family needed the alternative medical community, which has been flourishing here for decades. It was a wise move. I've never stayed anywhere else this long.
Why the Owner Chose Tarrytown:
Austin is one of the finest cities in the USA to live in. West Austin is an upscale quiet neighborhood, minutes away from most good things in Austin. Traffic is getting heavy in Austin as we have been on too many lists of best places to live. I love exiting the freeway just as it starts to slow down. This is a perfect location to avoid all that traffic and still be near all the places I want to go.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The spa amenities keep me in excellent shape. The trees and gardens soften the bustle of the city. The rooms are all creatively done and well equipped for health and relaxation. There is good privacy here.
