  • Hill Country landmark makes for a great getaway

    "Our group of 10 absolutely loved our stay at The Plant. We traveled with 6 adults and 4 young boys, and this was the perfect accommodation for us. The spacious vaulted screen porch was a great way to keep our party contained with plenty of room for games and running around. That porch also overlooks a nicely landscaped lawn area, which was perfect for playing football and setting up the badminton set we brought with us. Indoors, the owners have included many considerate amenities for city dwellers. The kitchen was outfitted with a big pro range (bring matches!), pour-over coffee pot and nice coffee grinder, cazuela, enamel pots and other nice serving ware, good knives, cutting boards, TONS of paper towels, wine glasses, etc. The bathrooms each had comfy towels, plenty of tissue paper (obviously these paper goods are important to me... especially after staying at other Homeaways that leave you high and dry), hair dryers, and enough hangers in the closet. Our bed upstairs was very comfortable, at least as good as ours at home. We spent both nights by the fire in the inglenook (our new term of the weekend) doing a puzzle and drinking wine. Thankfully the TVs are in the bedrooms, so it felt relatively free of technology. It was a bit chilly to swing in the pool or sleep on the swinging bed on the upstairs porch, but I bet these would be good amenities in warmer times. We also took advantage of the property nature tours offered by the sweet neighbors, Martha and Jamie. They led us on an exploration of the 1-2 acre area and taught us so much about the animals, insects and flora, as well as the amazing grottos and rock formations on site. I definitely recommend this as a way to expand your understanding of the site! Thanks so much to Mark and Dana for preserving the original character of the Plant and allowing visitors the experience of staying there... it's truly a Texas Hill Country gem, and most definitely a historic landmark in the making!"

  • quiet peacefull apartment

    "This is a very nicely furnished apartment. The main thing we liked about it was the privacy and quiet. It is close to downtown but in a quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance of restaurants and a convenience store. We would definitely stay here again"

  • Family Weekend at UT

    "We chose to stay in this comfortable cottage while visiting our children at UT for family weekend. We usually stay in a 3 or 4 star hotel when in Austin but have recently been disappointed with service and facilities and thought this would work better for us. We were very happy with our choice. The cottage is just as described and the owner was very helpful. Very clean and a great location. We would definitely book this property again!"
