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 Rosedale

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.

Nothing less than absolutely AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The location and the fact that the property is nothing less that beautiful was just an addition to our experience here. Unfortunate circumstances of Hurricane Harvey brought us to the Austin area, and we were completely clueless as to what we were getting ourselves into being new to the area. Lorna mapped every single detail out for us as a key to what's surrounding. Her guidebook gave us wonderful locations and restaurants to visit while in Austin (including this taco place that I dreamt about the next night). The location is centered around all the hotspots in Austin, and not too far from the University of Texas so there are plenty of places that stay open late and an extensive list of things to get into. The property itself was hassle free and had every amenity you could think of and even some you might have forgotten already available. Any questions or concerns you may have we already answered in the guidebook and if there was anything else Lorna gave immediate responses when reached out to. I can't thank Lorna enough for her hospitality, if I visit Austin again which I'm sure I will this property will be the go to for sure.

Extremely comfortable, spacious, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were staying in a new home. It's been beautifully remodeled with an open floor plan and lots of sunlight. The location was ideal for our family, near lots of fun shops, restaurants and parks. When we're in Austin next, this will be our first choice.

Lovely, comfortable home in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Lorna and Zach were great hosts. Very communicative about their property as well as the surrounding areas. They had great suggestions on things to do and places to eat and even kids activities! And much is within walking distance of their home. Their home has been newly renovated and is beautiful and comfortable and such a great location. I would highly recommend staying here. Great for family or friends.

A property true to its name: charming!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this lovely rental two times in the past year and both times I felt completely at home. The property is beautiful and extremely well-maintained both for the front house and the back guest bungalow. Everything was better than described!!! The owners are welcoming, helpful, and provided a guest book of nearby Austin attractions that was very useful! One of the times I stayed was with my husband for our "babymoon" and the owners suggested the best date night restaurant for a little celebration. They were so kind to offer suggestions to help us enjoy our time. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone. I truly don't think it can be beat!! Proximity to most Austin attractions, great restaurants, and feeling at home make this place the "must stay" place in the city! Completely delightful!!!

Adorably cozy and just right for our family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! The property was clean and very well-maintained, and the owners were super personable and helpful. We have two boys who slept in the twin beds downstairs, and my husband and I enjoyed the bedroom upstairs. The split level is nice. The kitchen is adorable and full of everything you could possibly need! I would highly recommend this place to anyone going to Austin.

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.
