About the Property
Charming cottage, in luxurious private organic garden, outdoor shower! Cheers!
Standard amenities include craft beer or homebrew in the full-sized fridge on arrival and chilled pint glasses in the freezer. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the gardens and use available herbs and veggies in their culinary explorations. Each night's stay includes organic coffee and tea. Visitors use plush bathrobes and greywater friendly sundries for use in the shower, whose drain feeds into the greens and herb gardens.
Convenient public transport is nearby. The #5 bus which takes you to the University of Texas and downtown Austin stops at the corner of Woodrow and Dartmouth, and Metro Rapid buses and the Metro Rail Crestview station are just blocks away. Close enough to conveniently reach all Austin festivals (SXSW, ACL, and others), but far enough away to ensure a peaceful night's rest.
The Bed and Brew neighborhood (Crestview) was once cotton fields on the border of the Blackland Prairie and the Balcones Escarpment on the edge of the Texas Hill Country. Our property has over 250 native plants as well as fruit trees an herb garden and is a registered Wildlife Habitat. Ideal for birders, as we participate in the Cornell FeederWatch project yearly, expect to see between 11-25 species of local birds and butterflies depending on the time of year. American Clay and non-toxic cleaners make this spot ideal for sensitive people seeking a clean, eco-friendly responsible destination for the adventurous and intellectual traveler. The Bed and Brew includes an expansive library and a 42'
TV, wifi, commercial free Pandora and Netflix. Ideal for people seeking to check out Austin for a weekend, a week, or longer.

About the owner: Greg and Cheryl met at Alternative Teacher Training in '98 and both taught in Austin Independent School District for many years while raising a family and exploring the abundant wonders of the rich Austin art scene. Both are Capital City Master Naturalists and the property is an eco-friendly establishment and was designed and created by Cheryl a local artist, gardener and yoga instructor as an oasis in the desert. Our property is an award winning garden which as been on the cities Master Gardener tour and is a feature in the neighborhood. We are both founding members of Blackstar Pub and Brewery, the only Homebrew COOP in the world. When we travel we seek out unique places run by loving people who enjoy the art of entertaining! We simply love meeting new people and have always wanted to share our love of this wonderful place with others.
Why the Owner Chose Crestview, Austin, TX, USA:
We were both military brats, who resented the constant upheaval that lifestyle commands. When it came time to raising a family of our own, we chose Austin as it has fabulous weather, year round gardening, is near beautiful State Parks, natural swimming holes, has more live music than anywhere in the country has a a vibrant and growing art scene and now is considered one of the top destinations for exploring the exploding, Craft Beer Scene. Crestview is an old school neighborhood with 1950's modest homes, huge lots and mature trees, we have lived in our home for 17 years and the Bn'B is a new endeavor. We wanted a safe and quiet location that was very close to wonderful schools, natural areas and the outstanding cosmopolitan downtown scene.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our Bn'B was born out of a love of having fun and staying young. It's not for everyone. You have to see the joy in climbing a ladder to a sleeping loft that has a beautiful view of an architecturally well thought out space with clear story lighting, natural American Clay walls and want to experience an enormous outdoor, breezy and luxurious shower. Our place was built for us, by us and with the environment specifically in mind. A lot of the features, such as the 3' stained glass window, the book collection and the stained concrete floors have been thought out and executed with artistic precision. Our place is free-standing so you won't be hearing someone above or beside you, and is set back among beautiful plants in a uniquely designed garden which we lovingly refer to while in, Homestead TV. And, finally I don't believe there is another establishment where you will find beer in the fridge and chilled glasses in the freezer. The fridge has some condiments, there is an extensive herb rack and fresh herbs available for your use. Depending on the season, also greens and fruit in the garden. We have lovingly considered the details of having an adventurous getaway, in town...a wonderful escape, a notch above glamping or an artists retreat...someplace to work out that song, finish your novel, or just have a lay in with excellent coffee with a tiny library. Owners live on site, just steps away and are happy to share their love of Austin and suggest activities. Enjoy our beer themed, brand new, ticket to relaxation and have fun! No pets, no children, and absolutely no smoking. Pour yourself a beer and chillax!
