                                  Austin is the center of the Lone Star State and is the gateway to the Texas Hill Country and the Highland Lakes. As the state capital and home to the University of Texas, the city supports a politically charged and culturally rich environment. Austin is hip and high-tech and is lucky to have a huge creative population of musicians, artists, and filmmakers. Austinites live for the outdoors as the city boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year. Nature trails and parks create an oasis in the heart of the city. Town Lake is bordered by 10 miles of hike-and-bike trails where joggers, walkers and cyclists exercise every day. You can take a thirty minute drive to cut your own lavender, bargain for antiques, or visit one of the many Texas wineries and breweries. There are also twenty state parks within a one hour drive.

                                  Golf: The Hancock Guest Cottage is across the street from the oldest golf course in Texas. The Hancock Golf Course is a 9 hole course created in 1899.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Hyde Park:
                                  The Unique Benefits of the Hancock Guest Cottage and Hancock Guest Nest Vacation Rentals We purchased our little 1933 rock cottage, the Hancock Guest Cottage and separate Hancock Guest Nest in 2007. Can you imagine what it was like in the 1930's? You'll be glad to know we kept many of the charming features from the telephone nook to the fold-down ironing board in the main cottage, and the Guest Nest features all of the modern conveniences of newer construction.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                                  Why Did We Choose the Hyde Park Hancock Neighborhood? If you know anything about Austin you'll know how feature-filled and rich the Hyde Park Hancock neighborhoods are. There are over a dozen restaurants and bars within four blocks! The neighborhood is quaint and cozy with the perfect location right on the bus line Downtown and to the University. The thing you'll like most about the Hancock Guest Cottage and Guest Nest are the lovingly created gardens and water features. It's a little oasis in central Austin!
