About Lorna Borger

We are a Colorado family who transplanted to Austin 9 years ago. We lovingly remodeled every square foot of our property, and we can't wait to share it with you!

Lorna Borger purchased this house in 2013

Why Lorna Borger chose Austin

Our fabulous location is just blocks from fantastic restaurants, coffee shops, a gourmet grocery, parks, a farmer's market... you name it, you can walk to it!

The majority of the homes in the quaint Rosedale area were built during the 1930s and 1940s, giving them an allure not found with newer construction. Go for a long walk through the streets of the neighborhood to experience charm and vitality or, get out and explore all that downtown Austin has to offer in just minutes. Not enough? We have close proximity to the Capitol, and The University of Texas at Austin.

A Beautiful Relaxing Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to gather family together for my daughter's graduation from the University of Texas. There is much more room in the house than it appears from the front. Lorna, the owner, was amazing to work with and always responded to my questions in a timely manner. I highly recommend this rental!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is comfortable, exceedingly well-furnished, nicely decorated, and the kitchen has every bowl, pot, pan, utensil and/or appliance you could possibly want. The owner was very responsive to the small problems we ran into (couldn't unlock the front door which was a user error :-), pilot light on hot water heater went out).

The beds were very comfortable, there are lots of things for kids to play with, there's a great area on the patio to sit outside at night.

In short, it'll be at the top of our list if we ever again need a house in Austin.

Charming, Convenient, Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

3 families from Boulder, CO took over the house and studio for a national bike race at Zilker Park in early January - 12 people, ages 10 to 49. This is a pretty discerning group and the first thing we noticed was the creative interiors and fun, livable spaces. Don't worry about the details. It's all here. We spent a ton of time at the house resting legs before races and making special athlete friendly meals. There were plenty of separate areas for people to chill out - especially with the studio. We loved walking to the neighborhood cafes, restaurants, and the grocery store. Lorna was super helpful and addressed our weird requirements like it was nothing - i.e. bike wash and storage for 14 bikes. Super fun!

The house was just like the pictures. Beautiful, functional, great for our needs (1 year old baby girl). Lorna even had some unexpected baby gear (beautiful outdoor playhouse, lots of toys, etc.) which came in very handy. Close to town, easy access to everything. Nice restrooms. All the beds were comfy, great linens. It's less than 10 mins to downtown. Really nice & quite neighborhood. Overall very pleased!

Car: necessary

Located in the heart of the beautiful Rosedale neighborhood, our charming cottage is walking distance to some of the best eateries in a city known for its incredible cuisine. You can't miss a trip to Uppercrust bakery to get what many deem the best cinnamon rolls in Austin, or a stroll over to Tacodeli get amazing tacos at any time, day or night. In the mood for one of the best cups of coffee in the city? Try Houndstooth, just steps away from our front door. Austin has it all, and our charming cottage is at the center of some of the favorite hot spots.
