The space offered is a private guest house at the rear of the owner's homestead. It is like a country cabin; a studio layout with complete kitchen. The bathroom has a shower and stacked washer/dryer. There is plenty of parking and outdoor living space. The Cabin is an ancillary dwelling to a 100 year old bungalow in the middle of Austin; walking distance to many quality restaurants, Zilker Park, Lady Bird Lake, and so much more!
Private cabin of approximately 600 square feet inside space plus covered porch.

About Doug Johnson
I am a life-long Texan. I grew up in Beaumont but have lived almost continuously in Austin since 1975; most of that time in the same home where I still live. I graduated from UT, have two grown children and one grandchild. I retired in 2014 and now work as a consultant when I'm not traveling.
Doug Johnson purchased this Cabin in 1983
Why Doug Johnson chose Tarrytown
The cabin I am renting was originally a "barn" in the rear of the same lot my 100+ year-old bungalow sits. The house has been my home for over 30 years, where I raised my children, and hope that they may continue to enjoy for many years to come. I remodeled the "barn" into a guest cottage for extra space for friends and family. It is also an ideal space to host guest travelers.
What makes this Cabin unique
This is the type of place that the adage "location, location, location" was coined for. For someone wanting to enjoy all that is special about Austin, you cannot ask for a better spot.

Thank you Thomas for your kind review and I hope you’re able to come back soon!
Our Thanksgiving stay worked wonderfully because we were just down the street from our family. Thanks!
I am very glad that you enjoyed your visit! I hope you are able to come again soon.
Wonderful hidden gem just outside the city center. Place was spacious and clean and nicely private.
We had a great visit. Thank you Doug
Alex, thank you for the nice review. I am very glad that you enjoyed your time here!
Cute, comfortable cabin in a great location
We had a great stay here. Walked to Zilker park every day in about ten minutes, used the nearby hike and bike trail, ate a great breakfast at Magnolia Cafe (a two minute walk away) and easily hiked to and from downtown. Cabin has everything we needed and then some. We plan to come back!
Charming and convenient
The Johnson Creek cabin offers a wonderful home in a walkable location near the river and various neighborhoood restaurants (Magnolia Cafe) and bars (Deep Eddy Cabaret had its 66th anniversary while we were there). The location was great for those of us who like to explore the city on foot and Doug was very accommodating and helpful: true Texas hospitality.
Great studio back house in an awesome & safe neighborhood close to town.
Doug was a great host, very much enjoyed my stay!
Property is located in the heart of Austin. Walking distance to Lady Bird Lake hike and bike trail, Zilker Park (ACL Music Festival), Deep Eddy Pool, and so much more that is great about Austin!
