Finding a good bed and breakfast in Austin is not very difficult at all.
There are more than twenty bed and breakfasts in Austin and several of them provide a great stay.
Bed and Breakfasts are often more expensive than hotels, but in return, most of them offer something special that you are unlikely to get at hotels.
Nevertheless, to keep it affordable, I have picked some reasonably-priced bed and breakfasts that are also highly-rated.
Here are four of my favorite Austin Bed and Breakfasts…
The Brava House Bed And Breakfast is rated by many as Austin’s #1 bed and breakfast. It is a unique Victorian residence with two guest rooms and four suites. It’s location in the heart of Austin means that you are walking distance away (or very close) from downtown Austin’s main attractions.
The owners, Robin and Mary, are wonderful hosts who take good care of their guests and are also very knowledgeable about Austin. This makes them a great resource if you haven’t been to Austin before.
The Brava House is great for a romantic getaway or honeymoon!
The 1110 Carriage House Inn is a two-storey colonial home that has been beautifully restored, and is another highly-rated bed and breakfast in Austin. It is also close to all the attractions of downtown Austin.
The rooms are just beautiful, with all the amenities you will need. The grounds are very relaxing, with a some outdoor swings, a pond with a waterfall, a gazebo, and a nice deck.
The breakfast at the 1110 Carriage House Inn is particularly good, with a nice variety that changes regularly. They also cater to special dietary needs.
The 1110 Carriage House Inn would make for a fantastic romantic getaway!
If you’re looking for a bed and breakfast that costs under $100 per night, the Carrington’s Bluff Bed and Breakfast is the way to go! Don’t be fooled into thinking that it is therefore not up to par though.
Carrington’s Bluff is located near downtown Austin and its attractions. There are 8 guest rooms, each being slightly different. Phoebe, the owner, is a great host that takes good care of her guests. She is quite knowledgeable about the area as well.
Carrington’s Bluff is also great for a romantic getaway or family gatherings.
The Woodburn House Bed and Breakfast is another great bed and breakfast in Austin. It is an elegant three-story home in Hyde Park, about 2 miles north of downtown Austin.
The Woodburn House has 6 beautiful guest rooms, each with an attached private bath, and original woodwork dating from the period when the house was built.
The owners, Noel and Kristen, take pride in providing a great service. They are very knowledgeable about the area. They also offer a very good breakfast!
The Woodburn is another great choice for a romantic getaway or honeymoon.
These are my favorite Austin bed and breakfasts and I think you will have a good stay at any of them. Keep in mind that bed and breakfasts are usually better suited to couples without kids.
These are of course not the only good ones to choose from. If you would prefer to look at a few other choices before making a decision, take a look at these other bed and breakfasts in Austin.
