About this listing
Located near Tx Hill Country Neighborhoods and close to Austin, the Farm Cottage is part of a larger cottage that has been divided into two. The space has its own entrance with deck, living room with sleeper sofa, 2 baths, a private room with queen size bed and a small bed room w/single bed. You will have your own private space and private entrance. The 4 + acres is shared by many two legged and 4 legged creatures, in addition to myself, my husband, my father and my two young adult daughters.
A Charming Family Farm Cottage that is eclectic in style. The living space is typical Southwest themed that has a queen sized sofa couch, cable TV and a private full bath with jacuzzi tub. Down the hall we have a mini kitchen with a coffee pot, microwave oven and dorm sized fridge (we do not have a full kitchen in this space). There is also a small grill on the deck if you wish to grill. The colorful main bedroom has a garden theme that compliments the gardens outside it's windows. Conveniently located to the main bed room and the smaller bed room is an additional small full bath. This is part of a larger cottage that has been divided into two. You will have your own private space and private entrance.
Our guests are more than welcomed to roam the property. We have tables outside for you to leave your troubles behind and to commune with nature.
There are vegetable gardens, aquaponic gardens, chickens and goats who call our place home. We welcome folks to take a tour of our farm with the owners. During the summer there is a above ground pool available and a large deck off of the main house. Our sunsets are the best in the area.
Interaction with guests
Having traveled extensively ourselves, we understand what it is like to be a stranger in a strange place. We are very hospitable to our visitors who are new to Austin and the Hill Country. Both owners are native Texans and Austinites and know the city and the hill country well. We can provide you with information and directions to local restaurants, Wedding Venues, breweries and parks. We will be as accessible as you want.
The 4+ acre family farm is on the way to Blanco, Johnson City and Fredericksburg and is located in the middle of large neighborhood developments and is 20 mins southwest from downtown Austin and 10 mins to Dripping Springs which is known as the Gateway to the Hill Country and the Wedding Capital of Texas. We have 30+ Wedding Venues in the area. There are wonderful local eateries and restaurants close by such as Pieous, The Salt Lick, Stanley Family Farmhouse Pizza, Trattoria Lisina, Thyme and Dough and much, much more. In addition, there are many local breweries and wineries near by. We are across the street from Belterra and down the road from Highpointe, The Vistas of Sawyer Ranch and the Polo Club.
Unfortunately, getting around requires a vehicle of some sort. We do not recommend that you ride bicycles on the roads around our place, but there are many trails for walking and bike riding across the street.
Other things to note
Due to our Texas Hotel/Motel taxes, I have increased the price of our listing. This increase will help pay the taxes. We still want to give you a wonderful affordable stay.
You will have your own driveway, covered parking and entrance to the cottage. We do have lots of chickens around the property so we ask that you drive slow down the drive.
We also are a Transfarming Learning Center dedicated to sharing knowledge and skills on how to become more self sufficient. Private classes are available for an additional fee. Just email us in case you are interested.
There is a 30 amp full hookup RV site available for additional charge. Contact us via the Airbnb host email for more information.
We love our family farm and we ask that our guests to please respect our place and treat it as if it were your own. In addition, we are a drug and smoke free family so we hope that you will not smoke or do illegal substances while staying at the farm cottage.

I along with my husband Mark, own a small family farm (Whitestone Family Farm) outside of Austin, Texas. (Dripping Springs) We love our farm and everything that goes on in it. I have 12 goats, chickens, a large aquaponic system, gardens and are working towards trans farming. In addition we have bee hives.
I have traveled extensively and my favorite past time is to hang out with my two young adult daughters. We love to eat out, drink coffee, hike and visit new places.
Things I can't live without...
1. The word of God
4. Good food
5. Family traditions
I am easy going and my family definitely knows how it is to be a stranger in a strange land. We are very hospitable and will visit with just about anyone. We are very casual, unpretentious and just basic good folk. (I hope)....
