1904 built house, One room w/ a futon bed in a gallery. Minimal furniture, but cozy. Off of the main living area, and steps down the hall is the bathroom w/ a 6ft long clawfoot bathtub only(no shower). Bohemian, serine coop style enviro. Couples ok.
Private room in a 1904 historic downtown mansion. Hardwood floors, claw-foot bath tub, walls and ceilings covered in artwork.
Two blocks from 6th Street, you are in easy walking distance to all SXSW events and Austin's downtown nightlife--the Whole Foods flagship store is 4 blocks away. This is a former governor's mansion and is in the heart of all things downtown. You're surrounded by other gorgeous mansions, but this is one of the few that hasn't been turned into lawyer's offices.
The room you'll be staying in is the gallery (the Blue Room) in the house. It has two 10-foot wood paneled doors that slide together to provide privacy, but the main living room and porch area are in sound range. The bathroom is down the hallway and is used only by occasional guests. Please note that a 6-ft clawfoot tub is the only option--there is no shower.
This is an incredibly unique house and you would be in the mix of the household--the owner of the house has an apartment on the first floor (separate from where you are staying). Three additional apartments are located in the upper floors, so the house can be quite lively.
While you can lose yourself looking at all the artwork on the walls, be aware that you should be ok with interacting with others. The comings and goings of a lived-in house make this room around an active area until about 10pm, when it will generally be quiet. If you want an experience that provides access to one of Austin's most unique residences and eclectic residents in an early-1900s mansion, this is for you.
The bed options are two twin Tempurpedic mattresses and/or a double bed (futon). Sheets and towels will be provided.
You will have access to your bedroom (the Blue Room), the bathroom, the living room, and the kitchen.
No cigarette smoking indoors.
Bathroom is a shared space.
Clean up after yourself.
Living room usually available.
