Built in 1880, this home has been recently restored with a modern farmhouse vibe. Just blocks away from the Lockhart downtown square featuring a stunning courthouse, world famous BBQ, locally owned gift shops, boutiques, vintage shops, bars, restaurants, and a wonderful coffee shop. Lockhart has been known as the BBQ Capital of Texas for years but there is so much more to discover!

Minutes away from Circuit of the America’s and 30 miles to The Live Music Capital of the World - Austin, TX.

The space

This listing is for one room in Ellison House. This home boasts three spacious rooms - two rooms up the gorgeous wood staircase, one below. Each room has a keypad locked door and a full bathroom. Towels, linens and soaps are provided. There is a shared living and kitchen space along with a back patio and upstairs balcony.

We imagine Ellison had a library with Enlightenment books, maps, and curiosities from his travels in this downstairs guest room. When you enter the front door you will see the Library immediately to your right, number one. The Library has a king-sized bed, sitting area, and lots of light coming through the windows. Ellison's Library has access to the downstairs covered balcony where guests can relax and watch Lockhart pass by. Guests can also spend time in the shared salon and play records, board games, read, or make and share a meal in the kitchen. Internet access is included, but no TVs in the rooms. We hope our guests are transported to an earlier time, but with modern comforts you expect. Each room is locked with a unique skeleton key on the original mortise locks.

Coffee is available, but we encourage our guests to take a 5-minute walk downtown and grab coffee and breakfast on the square. If you want a special catered meal inquire with our hosts. We enjoy providing custom experiences for our guests. If you are interested in booking more than one room for an event please inquire for availability and how we can make your event special.

Guest access

Each guest room is equipped with a keypad entry lock. Guests will have access to the communal living room & kitchen. The residents of the house are often away and have their own separate kitchen/living space.

Interaction with guests

We will have everything set for you to arrive at your convenience on your own, but we are also available to answer any questions and give recommendations. We're available 24 hours by text or phone to our guests.

The vibe is escapist dream boarding house. Loved every minute, whether on the downstairs porch, upstairs porch, in the window seat, lounging in the sitting room spinning vinyl, having snacks at the kitchen table, taking a long bath, watching rainbows from the stairwell. We will be back.
