Wide open Texas space allows for privacy and comfort while doing business in Austin or the Hill Country. Situated just outside the Austin City Limits -- 11 miles to Downtown, 4 houses from the city limit line. Be close to many popular Austin destinations while also enjoying the comfort of a large space with wide open porches and living spaces in order to start and end each business day in country tranquility.

The space

The barn is great for business travelers who would prefer more space and privacy than a traditional hotel provides. Barn is 1300 sqft of country chic decor, with one bedroom, one bath, light and bright with a glass garage door in the living room. Cool AC, well-equipped kitchenette, plenty of space to work or kickback. City conveniences while relaxing in country openness is a great way to visit Austin. 4 single beds so each member of your party gets their own spot -- share the views, not a bed. KITCHENETTE: The kitchenette has a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, double basin farmhouse sink, as well as coffee maker, tea kettle, crockpot, microwave, toaster oven, hot plate, and griddle, but NOT an oven/stove. There are dishes, utensils, platters, cleaning supplies.

Guest access

Barn includes creative, rustic decor with open rafter ceiling, wood walls, and concrete floors. Bedroom is separated from living area with curtained glass french doors (no lock). Bathroom includes 60" frameless glass door shower with rain & handheld shower heads, and toilet in one room, with large sink and washer/dryer in another room as well. Bath may be accessed from either bedroom or living room, so very private even for multiple guests. Barn includes private entrance and parking, both monitored with security cameras. Kitchenette means that you only have to restaurant dine if you wish - and the barn is conveniently located to many great restaurants! 1300 sqft of living space includes large table for working or eating, large couch & great tv with satellite for relaxing after the workday is done. Also, two large porches are a great place to begin or end a day, so lots of comfortable space to relax and spread out. The barn is located in the backyard of a family home, so your hosts are nearby and available to make sure your visit is stress free and enjoyable. The barn would be a great place to relax after a busy work day in either Austin or the Hill Country.

Interaction with guests

The barn is located in the backyard of our family home. Guests may have as much privacy as they'd like, but we are available for any needs that may arise during your stay.
We expect to know who will be sharing the barn with us. The rental contract we provide will allow you to list name, age, address & contact # for each guest (IDs may be confirmed at arrival). It will also ask for your arrival/departure times and assure us that you'll have a great stay at the barn.

Other things to note

No unregistered guests on property - anyone visiting the barn should be included in your reservation. The barn is across the large yard from an active family's home. This ABB listing is our family entertaining space and is managed by our family, not a real estate company. Please let us know if you have questions or if there is something we can do to improve your stay. If you've realized you'd rather visit the barn with friends or family for fun rather than business, then look at our Real Texas Barn listing for groups up to 8 guests.

Really loved staying at The Barn! It provided a nice and quiet place to come back to after ACL. Kelly is very detail oriented so all of your questions are already answered and if not she responds very quickly. The Barn is close to their home but we still felt like we had our privacy! You won't be disappointed in your stay at The Barn.

Kelly and her family are some of the kindest and accommodating people I've met. I have a very hectic schedule for work and commute between two states weekly. Kelly was very understanding and my stress immediately left once I arrived at the barn. This place is just absolutely beautiful. It's peaceful, fun, and close to everything as well. She had tons of recommendations for me as far as we're to eat, play, shop! I even had snacks and drinks in the fridge when I arrived. The inside and outside of this home was the perfect answer to the serenity I needed after being in hotels for weeks! Thank you for having me and I hope to be back soon!

What a place! Though my girlfriend and I were only in town for a few days and out & about most of the time, it was an absolute pleasure to return to the comforts of The Barn after a long day. Kelly did quite the job with turning this space into a cool, open-concept unit to kick your shoes off and relax. We were greeted by Kelly and offered tips on where to eat and what to do, which was greatly appreciated! Whether you're a couple like us on vacation, have kids, or are even a larger group: The Barn is def a great option. Best part for me was sitting out on the spacious deck spittin' my sunflower seeds and feeding the chickens that Kelly has gracing the property. I know the next time I decide to come to Austin, I will look into The Barn as a first option. Highly recommended!!!

I'm a serial home remodeler and completely meticulous with home details from cleaning to comfort. In our married life we've lived in 9 different houses, 5 of which we built from scratch or completely remade. When our first kiddo started driving we looked for a property closer to their school in order to keep them out of Austin traffic as much as possible. This location was great and the lot was large, unfortunately the buildings were awful. So, the great undertaking began. The Barn was the first structure to be remade and it served as our home-base as the main house was rebuilt after 50 years of aging and neglect. Now that construction is mainly finished throughout I'm taking on clients who have their own spaces to remake and sharing the barn with Austin travelers.
With a large family we tend to do things a little differently from the norm, so the barn is likely nothing like anything you've ever lived in before. It was built to be fun, funky and sturdy. We love family & friends, and entertaining while being cozy & comfortable. We feel fortunate to have more space than we regularly need, so we're happy to welcome guests who will love the barn as much as we do. Hosting here allows us to pay our property taxes, take the kids for an extra treat now and then and gives me a reason to buy more throw pillows and art than would normally be sensible for a barn.
With that oldest kiddo out of the house and off to college we may also become more frequent AirBnB guests as we'll be entering that stage where our family isn't all in one place. We believe in Texas hospitality whether you come to us or we come to you.
