We are from Austin, Texas and love the outdoors, great food and drink. We are lucky to be in a great city that celebrates creativity.
If you are going to Austin to attend the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Drownland House is perfect. It is a private room, bathroom, and entrance in a house across from a park (great for a morning walk or run). The neighborhood is lovely. Very cute bungalow type houses. It is a 5 minute walk (through this quiet neighborhood) to So. Congress St which has everything you can want: great restaurants, shops, live music, grocery store and bus stop. Paul and Cheryl were wonderful hosts. Cheryl spent a half hour (over a glass of wine on their wonderful porch) circling restaurants, bus stops and sites on a map. She had baked us cookies and put wine and beer in the fridge (comes with the room). And left candles on the porch on the night we came home at 10:30 in a rainstorm.
Don't stay anywhere else.
For the epitome of southern hospitality.
Couldn't have asked for nicer place to stay or more accommodating gracious hosts.
Location, 5-10 minute walk to soco.
Would stay here again and again .
Thank you both for everything.

Cheryl and Paul were so welcoming. They were very helpful showing us the neighborhood and telling us about the good places to go. And in fact the places they suggested were really good.
the guest house was clean , I loved the decoration. Cheryl provided us with a welcome basket and asked us if we need anything.
the place is 2 minutes away from a bus stop and the main street has shops, restaurants and bars . Such a good neighborhood.
Very very good experience. I recommend the place to everybody
Going to a city you dont know for the first time can be scary when you are on your own. But my experience at Drownland House made my trip .From a Lovely warm welcome, to a survival care package Cheryl and Paul made me feel at home and were very accommodating to my drop in and out needs of attending a conference i couldn't have asked for better hosts.
The room was large and spacious with its own bathroom perfect accommodation to stay in whilst visiting Austin
A must visit, Will definitely want to go again
