The Forest Retreat is in a great location. The house is surrounded by forest and has the feel of the country but it is 5 minutes from downtown Austin and the hip SOCO district and 20 minutes from the airport. It was built by master furniture maker Wolf Sitter, (website hidden) and designed by his artist/photographer wife, Charlotte Bell,.(website hidden). The house is full of special touches that they have added. Pecan kitchen cupboards and photographs from around the world are a few of the additions.
The bedroom has a queen bed, sky light and windows looking out into the trees.
The bath has glass and ceramic tile in the tub and shower.
A covered patio has table chairs and a grill.
This is a casual house that puts people at ease the moment they enter.

This is the place to stay in Austin! Great neighborhood convenient to both South Congress and Downtown. Charlotte and Wolf were gracious hosts. Charming and quiet detached apartment. The Travis Heights neighborhood is great to explore on foot. Charlotte was kind enough to print our concert tix when we did not have a printer. Felt very much at home in the forest. I would highly recommend it.
This space was near perfect for my mother and her elderly partner. They really loved the tranquility and natural setting. We would love to rent this space again and really appreciate that it was just around the corner from our home. The only tiny caveat is that if you have compromised vision or are elderly, the stairs going down to the front door can be a little tricky without a handrail. BUT this was only a very minor issue. Overall, we are very grateful to have such a homey, quiet and clean space available for our out-of-town guests. Thank you Charlotte and Wolf!
