  • Wright place, Right time

    "We had a wonderful time at Elam House over the 4th of July, 2016. It was just the two of us so it fit us well and was a very peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The home itself is incredibly dramatic in appearance and layout. Sitting in the guest living room was serene and the view was gorgeous. Sitting outside on the patio was also lovely with the sounds of the birds and giant trees. The current owner, Peter, is working at maintaining the house while also keeping it as original as possible. So that means it still runs on the 1950's functioning plumbing, air and boilers and has a lot of the original furniture. Before going, we were a bit nervous about sharing the house with the owners during our stay, but the guest portion of the house is really a completely separate area of the home separated by a long (60ft!) hallway with a door that is locked at all times except during the main house tour. It wasn’t an issue at all. I really enjoyed getting to learn all the back-story to the house and how it was built despite some of the road blocks the original owners encountered from FLW during the design phase. Peter has put together a book of the correspondence between the Elams and Wright’s team that really shows what it was like to work with him on a project. It’s definitely a bonus read for any fan of the architect. This was a wonderfully peaceful getaway and an extra special treat if you enjoy the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, so I will be telling all my friends and family about this place for years to come."

  • Weekend with my son

    "My son and I stayed at this property to celebrate my son's 35th birthday. The home was a perfect place for us to relax and visit. The property was immaculate, even with the street construction taking place at the time."

  • Staying in Austin

    "We were in town to attend a family reunion and had the good fortune to find this treasure. Everything is brand new and beautifully decorated! The house is lovely with plenty of room and in fact looks even better than the pictures. The only problem we encountered was that we were there during 92 degree weather and the air conditioning doesn't flow into the bedrooms well enough. But considering that Austin doesn't experience this level of heat very often, this was a minor problem and I would stay there again in a heartbeat! I would highly recommend this place!"

  • Beautiful, cozy house for a Girl's Weekend

    "Becky was a great hostess for our Girls Weekend. She was very responsive with all my questions leading up to the weekend. The accommodations were perfect. 3 large bedrooms, each with their own bath. Worked great for the 6 of us! There were so many cute touches within the cabin and it seemed like we had everything that we needed. We made meals there and there was not anything missing. We couldn't have asked for better weather (70 degrees in November). After visiting 4 Daughters Winery (which is nearby and a must if you are in the area), we were able to come back to the house and sit on the porch and bask in the sun. There were even lawn chairs there for us! A few of us went walking on the bike trail in the morning which was right out the door. There isn't a ton to do in the area but for us that was perfect as we just wanted to be together (some of us girlfriends hadn't seen each other in 15 years). Would highly recommend staying here."
