Austin is rich in history and so is our studio, which sits on the old
Bouldin family farm. The Mill house is in its original condition and
has a historical marker. The Bouldins were one of the first families
to settle in the Austin area in the early 1850s and they acquired a
considerable amount of property. Our property is one of the original
buildings built by the Bouldins. The property is located just steps
away from South Lamar but when on our property it is almost like you
stepped back in time to a different era. Our distinctive studio, which
we call the Carriage House, faces out into a little creek bed
surrounded by trees and greenery.
When you walk in the front door you will be amazed by the beautiful
original stone walls and vintage decor. Our comfortable queen sized
antique bed is highlighted by a rustic chandelier. The distinctive
bathroom is decorated with old-fashioned fixtures from the claw foot
bathtub to the Victorian pull chain toilet. While staying at the
Carriage House you will have access to our large flat screen TV with
Direct TV (we are currently working on getting Wi-Fi into the home).
We have a kitchenette complete with a mini-fridge, Keurig coffee
maker, microwave and dishware.
When out in the garden don't miss an opportunity to follow the short
path to our pet donkeys, they love attention. The boy's name is Bang
and the little girl's name is Ruth. They love to nibble on grass or
leaves, feel free to rub their heads. We should mention that part of
the charm of our property is being downtown and we do have a train
that runs past the property at different times; I don't mind the train
but not everyone will find it as charming as I do.
Our property sits on 1.5 acres with a wet weather creek, gas grill,
fire pit, hammock, miniature donkeys and relaxed seating/dining areas
from which to enjoy the spirit of another time and place. If you ever
actually want to leave our amazing retreat you will find you are only
steps away from South Lamar and a short 3-minute drive from downtown
Austin. South Lamar is the epitome of ‘Keep Austin Weird’ with its
affordable, low-key lifestyle which is exemplified by its cheap
eateries, cool thrift shops, and dive bars. We are minutes from
downtown, Zilker Park and South Congress. We are surrounded by local
music, amazing eateries, and trendy sights. Take a quick trip over to
South Congress for some unique shopping and food. Don’t miss an
opportunity to stand on South Congress Bridge at dusk (in the summer
months) to see the world’s largest urban bat colony emerge. With up
to 1.5 million bats spiraling into the summer skies Austin now has one
of the most unusual and fascinating tourist attractions anywhere.
