The Studio is just a short walk over to the Main House from the Guesthouse Cabin, and The Studio is the first floor of the Main House! Please feel free to inquire. Lots of fun! I purchased this old 'farmland' property in 1996, when I was drawn to the area and its quiet, peaceful environment, where I just knew nature would abound, flowers and landscape would blossom, and my creative energies would flow! And 'was also the builder/ co-designer of the dwellings on the property. My creative energy is recognized in its details. I truly enjoy making The Guest house Cabin Retreat a Special and memorable vacation for my many and varied guests. Putting together the Welcome Baskets; catering to Special Occasions; making Special picnic baskets or stocking the fridge to the specifications and ultimate desires of my guests are just a few of the ways that I enjoy making my guests feel welcome and pampered! Always feel free to inquire on any SPECIAL REQUESTS!~ I'm here to make your stay special!

Why the Owner Chose Cypress Banks, Austin, TX, USA:
This property is unique, in one of the most prestigious and upscale, yet interesting areas of the city! NOT a SUBDIVISION!~ONLY 7 MILES from Downtown Austin!~Tucked away on a private road that and with the expanse of "un lit" Emma Long City Park across the river, it makes for star gazing in clear skies!~ It was old farmland property, and sits with pride as part of an older, more peaceful way of life. It is because of this, that the Guesthouse is so special, secluded and away from the hustle bustle, yet near so many wonderful places to visit during your stay. There are many types of birds and other wildlife that frequent the property, and one has only to sit and listen to be reminded that one is truly in the country here.... But short drives to everything Austin and the Hill Country has to offer make it the "#IDEAL LOCATION!"

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
GUESTS may "CUSTOMIZE" their stays w/ multiple choices of "Add Ons" to make it EXTRA Special! Upgrades include choice/s of: Specialty Baskets for: Arrival, Breakfast, Picnics, appetizers, or Spa Packages. (lists of items and details available upon booking. As the landlord on the premises in the main house, I am almost always available to give you feedback or answer questions to make your stay more enjoyable! There is a 'Concierge Book' for more details on things to do in the Austin Area, directions, brochures, favorite restaurants, and too many to name fun things to do in Austin, nearby. We look forward to your visit. Nina Beall, Hostess.
