Fun-loving, art collecting man in social hive, still interested in life and building a space. I think of my house as a stoner museum.

The listing description was very accurate. The room was spacious, and had amazing art on the walls and ceiling. The bed was low to the ground, but was very comfortable. It was nice to have a parking spot so close to 6th street action. Great location to walk to go see music and for going out! The bathroom was just down the hall, and did just have a bathtub, but that was as advertised. Very friendly folks in the house when we saw them, our room and that part of the house was relatively quiet the whole stay. Nice people, clean house, amazing art, superb location, would stay again!
I enjoyed my stay in the Blue Room tremendously. Upon arriving in Austin, I received a text from one of Blair's tenants who sent a friendly welcome and helped me check in speedily. The room itself was spacious and the accommodation had everything a traveller would need. While it may seem a bit far from the Austin Convention Center (for SXgoers) it was the perfect proximity. Once out the door, you're only a few steps away from the tail end of 6th street and the flagship Whole Foods. The Downtown Mansion was at times a nice retreat for a busy traveller. I recommend this place!
Blair was a great host and made me feel very welcomed in his home. I came with the intention of having a relaxing getaway and staying at the Blue Room Mansion certainly delivered. You can spend a day just looking at all the artwork, chilling by the fireplace (check out the frolicking devils) and having a nice relaxing bath. Definitely will be back.
Blair's place was gorgeous and very full of character (the number and variety of paintings he possesses really needs to be seen to be believed)! As a host, Blair was also very warm and friendly, and easy to reach for small housekeeping matters.
The room we were in was a little dusty, but nothing too bad (plus the bed, though not a real, full-sized one, was comfortable). We found the claw foot bath tub challenging to use, but then again we are definitely more used to modern showers.
Overall, the location was good for Downtown Austin; the house is historic and gorgeous; and Blair warm and approachable.
Blair made my husband and I feel very welcome, it was like staying at a friend's place. His house is in a quiet and beautiful residential area that is two blocks from 6th...location couldn't be better. Highly recommend if you need to be near downtown. We did not need any taxis or public transport, we walked everywhere. Futon was actually really comfortable and the claw bathtub was nice too. As Blair makes clear in the place description there is no shower, your bedroom doors are sliding (but they lock) and there are other housemates and guests there--but we felt we had good privacy for all that. Blair apologized for having a party one night but it was a very laid back paella and sangria party that I think ended by 10pm...so yeah, it was family atmosphere, not like it was an obnoxious frat house. These are mature hosts that know how to be courteous to guests. Towels were really clean.
Staying at the Blue Room with Blair was great. The house is amazing, covered in art, photographs, it was exactly the kind of place we wanted to stay while in Austin. I enjoyed the bathtub, and we had no problems getting in or out. I would definitely stay here again.
The house was exactly as it is described on the listing. It's huge, beautiful and very accommodating! The pictures everywhere are amazing as well. Blair was the host with the most for sure. Anything we needed he was able to assist with. The room is just inside the front door and it's pretty darn quiet. The bed was super comfy and the location could not be beat! We were able to walk to everything we needed. Stayed here for ACL weekend one- 4 blocks from shuttle. 4 blocks from whole foods also and a bunch of bars and nightlife! We would def stay here again. When you leave things in the fridge def put your name on them as warned. I did not do this and I lost some delicious breakfast tacos- totally my fault as I was warned. This house was really cool and the paintings/pictures are simply captivating.. If you want a really cool experience stay here for sure. Thanks Blair! You are one super cool dude- and a great skipper!

The place, the people and the location were just great!!!!
Blair was the consummate host and we felt safe, secure and welcome in his period mansion.
I had such a wonderful time in Austin with Blair and family! My loose based plans fell apart, but I couldn't have landed in a better spot. The house is filled with artistic, intelligent, and friendly people. I felt at home in a place I had never been! Staying here made my trip worthwhile! Thank you to Blair and the rest of the house. I couldn't have landed in a better place!
Blair was really welcoming and gave us lots of great tips about Austin. We met some of his friends at his house and they were all very lovely and friendly too.
