Business Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Great place for getting together with business associates and networking over 5 days. There were a few hiccups, but I have lived in my house for over 10 years and we have a few hiccups even now.

Carrie was a splendid host, by that I mean she let us enjoy the entire house without checking on us. The pig, goats and chickens were a great surprise for us city folks and gave us a few distractions to break up our meetings.

Beautiful and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Carrie was such a great host. The house is beautiful and was close to everything we needed to do. Despite having to stay in Austin for a dear friends memorial service this house and Carrie made everything simple and a memorable weekend we will never forget. Thank you for your graciousness and for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Roomy, quiet, clean, well stocked - LOVED IT!!!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Austin with our daughter and her boyfriend for a softball tournament. It rained pretty much every day which was a bummer for the tournament but having this lovely home to hang out in made the trip fun anyway.

What we loved most about this property was its great location - on an acre, but very close to everything. It was clean and quiet; plenty of room for the five of us, beautiful plants and flowers surrounded the house - goats, a pig and a goose visited every day.

The kitchen was extremely well stocked, the beds were very comfortable. There is a family room off the kitchen as well as a living room. There are decks off both floors for sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet. We were sad to leave; it was just wonderful.
