About the property

Located behind a beautiful Victorian Home in downtown Llano, this restored Cottage is situated only 1 block from the Historic Llano County Courthouse Square and 3 blocks from the Llano River.

The 686 square foot Cottage is located at the back of the property and was restored in 2002 using now-irreplaceable materials from the original carriage house located on the site.

It was quiet except for traffic noise, other than that we enjoyed it.

Cottage is cozy

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is cozy and felt right at home. I do recommend a sheer or something on the window above the tub.

Roomy and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this backyard cottage. The setting is very serene. The one room area was very spacious; however, we recommend curtains or blinds in the bathroom and more furniture in the main room such as a chest of drawers and table and chairs. The furniture on the screened porch needs to be replaced.

A lovely retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and rustic retreat in the heart of Llano! The space was warm and inviting with a super comfy bed, spa tub & mini fridge. Since you can't cook in this space, we made a few meals that didn't require heat (sandwiches and salads mostly). A shower or shower head attachment would be nice, but honestly, we really enjoyed just relaxing in the tub! Highly recommend Berry Street Bakery for light and tasty brunch or a decedent sweet treat (cinnamon rolls are huge and amazing)! Thank you Eva! We'll be back for sure :)
