In the heart of the historic Hyde Park, this two-story, colonial revival-style home is convenient for a variety of restaurants and gathering places. Interiors are attractive and historic, with original pine floors and antique furnishings. The spacious Adams Suite is the most requested room, featuring a private sun porch. A separate bungalow offers a little more privacy (albeit less historical charm).
YOU SHOULD KNOW This 1911-built former homestead was given Austin Historic Landmark status.
The décor in each of the five suites may be a little outdated, but one should expect nothing less from a B&B that maintains its original charm. And don’t let the floral linens deter you—the grand beds are beyond comfy. The antique furniture and wall hangings only add to the vintage charm of the place.
Simple yet spacious bathrooms that offer everything you need to get ready for the day or to wind down.
Innkeepers Josh and Whitney are available throughout the day to help with any needs or requests.
Ask Josh or Whitney about things to do in the beautiful Hyde Park neighborhood or beyond.
There is no dining or drinking option available on the grounds, though homemade breakfast of eggs, yogurt, granola, and fruit is served between 7:30 a.m. -9 a.m. daily.
Hyde Park is very walkable and it’s easy to kill a full day in the small but bustling neighborhood. To experience the action of greater Austin one will have to grab an Uber or rent a car. Biking is also an option.
Austin’s premier vegetarian restaurant—Mother’s (3-minute walk)—is located mere blocks from Adams House. But you don’t have to be a veg head to enjoy their menu. Meat lovers even love their herbivore comfort food. Asti Trattoria (3-minute walk) offers light and fresh Italian fare and pizza in a secluded and romantic setting.
At first glance, Dolce Vita (4-minute walk) is a neighborhood coffee shop. Upon further examination, you’ll see that the menu also offers dangerously delicious gelato and liquor cocktails that are an absolute must. Hyde Park Bar and Grill (4-minute walk) serves up a delectable list of Southern comfort fare, but the large bar in the center of the restaurant is a great stop for a glass of wine or cocktail.
WHY WE LIKE IT
This is one of the few accommodations available in the historic Hyde Park area. Though it is a small neighborhood, Hyde Park is an idyllic retreat that many visitors don’t always get to see. The house itself is warm and inviting, and nice reminder that at one time Austin was a quaint Texas town.
