"Both the property and Robert's hospitality were wonderful. Recommend this place if you have a well behaved dog you like to travel with as it has a great backyard and is on a quite street. Just a short walk from all the action of SoCo and lots of the neighborhood charm that keeps Austin weird."

"Ok, here's the thing, this adorable cottage is tucked away right in the middle of San Marcos and no one even knows it's there. It was perfect in every respect. We loved the relative seclusion and the peace and quiet. You can count us among those who think trains are charming (unless they're blocking the road when you are trying to get somewhere), so the sound of train whistles was distracting for like ten minutes.
We relaxed and spent time with our daughter who lives in San Marcos. It was so nice to have place where she could come and relax and talk and laugh. We spent time on the front porch drinking wine and met two charming dog friends, Texie and Gunner. You'll notice there's a bag of dog biscuits behind the door for when they show up. We also met a little kitty on the back deck who was sweet and possibly blind. All of the pets belong to others in the area but after recently losing our beloved lab, Emma, they were a comfort to us. There are also an abundance of deer all over the property.
The antiques in the cottage are wonderful. Everywhere you look there is something to look at. The family room is comfy with two huge leather chairs and matching ottomans.
We also very much enjoyed the screen porch where we ate most of our meals and played cards on one occasion.
Pam was very gracious and although we didn't have the chance to meet the owners, Mike and Kirsten, meeting Pam told us a lot about them. Certainly they must be charming and down to earth types because that's the theme of this wonderful cottage and that's how Pam is as well.
Do yourself a favor and pass on the hotel experience and book this cottage if it is available. We will certainly be back!"

"My husband and I stayed at this cozy place for a weekend. We were there to visit our son who goes to UT. Everything we wanted was available. There was even a nice selection of wine you could purchase which I thought was a nice touch. Will definitely stay here again."
