The space

Experience the century-old simplicity and ambiance of the Old School, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, whose broad, sweeping porches look out over the Austin landscape. The spacious rooms and grounds make the perfect site to host festivities. The central location is easy walking distance to the Capitol, Sixth Street, restaurants like Franklin's barbeque, hip east side bars, and galleries.

This listing is for Kate's room, which has an entrance from the upstairs balcony, a queen sleigh bed, high ceilings, grand windows and an en suite bath.

A suite of three upstairs bedrooms will sleep six. The other two rooms are listed separately on Airbnb as the Inn at Old School Oat Willie's Room and Natalie's room. Downstairs you will find the large East Room and one and a half baths. You may contact me about renting all four rooms together.

Amenities include wifi, parking, and flat screen television, large comfortable living room, inviting outdoor spaces with native plants and antique roses, spacious porches with rocking chairs, and welcoming cats. Relax and unwind in this unique space.

The Old School is also convenient to bus stops and light rail.

Guest access

You may use the refrigerator and coffee pot.

Other things to note

You must be able to climb stairs to access bedrooms upstairs but the East Room downstairs has an accessible ramp to enter the facility. The faucet in the showers downstairs and in Kate's room do not turn in the usual ways.

D'Ann User ProfileD'Ann is a superhost.

I grew up in South Jersey outside of Philly. My family came from Wyoming and I like to visit there and go fishing each summer. I have been lucky to mother a number of children as a step mother, foster mother, adoptive mother and birth mother. My children have become teachers, chaplains, peace corps volunteers, activists, union organizers, business persons, and parents themselves. I am a Legal Aid lawyer and general agitator for justice. I hope we leave the world a better place because of our actions.
