This 7-room boutique hotel, opened in late 2012, anticipated the need for lodging in gentrifying East Austin and set a high bar for it. It’s an architectural delight, a 1925 Craftsman bungalow beautifully furnished with mid-century modern pieces, local art (many pieces are for sale), comfy throw pillows, and colorful textiles. Several guest rooms have high ceilings and skylights; some have patios. All offer handcrafted walnut platform beds dressed in high-quality linens, reclaimed longleaf pine floors, white noise machines, and refrigerators stocked with Texas beer. But one of the best things about staying here is the personalized service; you’ll get a great introduction to the latest food trucks and restaurants in the area, as well as to downtown sights, just a 10-minute walk away. The staff is only on property from 7am to 7pm, so you’re on your own at night, which adds to the homey atmosphere.
