Didn't want to leave!
My husband and I wanted to get away from Houston for a night and explore Austin. He went to c=school there but we haven't been back for at least 25 years for a "fun relaxing trip". I was so happy when I found Park Lane, and even happier when the night we wanted was available. We chose the "Cottage", and were pleased beyond our expectations. George, who takes care of the property while the owners are gone, was helpful, friendly and his fiance whose name we never got regretably, made our stay wonderful. She made the most incredible breakfast which was served with every detail imaginable. The eggs were organic and they have hens on site that were fun to see and feed. I aways thought chickens would stink but I was wrong. They make it look easy to raise and now I want to but I'm pretty sure the atmosphere is much better here at park Lane than Houston! We ate every bite. The "Cottage" is so wonderful. Every room has incredible stained glass windows. Even the bathroom which I could talk about for days! Black and white deco with dual showerheads. Soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotions were organic and Iwent to Whole Foods and boght some because they made my hair and body feel so good. Perfect. Pool outside was amazing. Small but perfect with a waterfall and outside shower. The "Cottage has two patios and we sat enjoying both of them. Bedding was comfy and high end. We were so centrally located to Congress and could walk easily. We will be back for sure and will tell all our friends. We look forward to meeting the innkeepers as well. We hated to leave.

My husband and I stayed here a few years ago and it was the best B&B/guest house experience we have had. Adorable cottage, zen garden pool area, very tranquil and relaxing in the heart of downtown, SOCO, near hike and bike trail, and all that is fun and funky about Austin. The breakfasts were wonderful, especially poolside, and the hostesses were great, balanced making sure our needs were met with giving us our privacy. The outdoor poolside shower was fun too! Book it, you'll love it!

Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: We started as a carpenter and a midwife, looking for a better life in a new part of the country. We chose Austin for its good climate, healthy lifestyle and progressive attitude. It was always our dream to run a B and B, a place to serve international travelers and provide the things most important to us and so often missing on the road, organic, chem./free luxury. Something more than the standard generic urban chain hotel could offer. A place where you could feel at home away from home. Together, we shared a deep commitment for environment and a love for people. So we started small with one guest room, and grew with the public demand, adding one cottage at a time. Park Lane Guest House was a natural for us. Over the last 15 years, the world has changed, our careers have changed, but the need for comfort and kindness has only grown.
Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
In 1994, after a detailed search we stumbled upon a rare find, a 1/2 acre property with an old house on a good foundation, some big Live Oak trees and a short walk to the downtown CapitSl. A diamond in the rough, and a good place to start. It's first life was as the 1940's New Deal Tin shop, constructed from the reclaimed building elements of Camp Swift, a Bastrop, Texas WWII Fort. Now, as an full service private cottage, in the hippest neighborhood in Austin, shopping, great food and live music are just a few steps away.
