Places to stay in Austin
Kiss the clouds from this lofted apartment soaring above a repurposed horse barn. Austin Software entrepreneur, Steven Ray, built this cozy 576 sq ft hideaway on the gated Hudson Bend Ranch as a retreat from civilization. Total privacy, surrounded by natural hill country vegetation in all directions, you might not want to ever leave, unless you want to encounter humans.
Have morning coffee on the covered deck as you gaze over the tree tops facing the rising sun. Listen to birds sing and watch Mr Roadrunner and family take dust baths as the day begins. Retreat to the full kitchen for home cooked breakfast and watch a little breaking news on the 49 inch flat screen with sound bar. As the Texas sun starts to heat up, enjoy a cool retreat as central air doesn’t escape this fully foam insulated structure. Watch the game, veg on the couch, surf the web on hi speed internet, or just enjoy the complete privacy and safety of this one of a kind getaway. As the sun starts to set, fire up the Coleman gas grill located in the large oaks in your own private courtyard located in massive oak trees down below. Enjoy the soft hue set off by 100 foot of led string lights. Entertain friends and family with plenty of parking to go around.
Hudson Bend is a quiet lakeside community located on a peninsula surrounded by Lake Travis main body. We are minutes from dining, nightlife, shopping, golf, and lake attractions. Rent a boat, jet sky, or houseboat at one of five marinas on the peninsula just 1/2 mile away. Enjoy live music during the summer season at Cedar Street lakeside. Catch an Uber to downtown Austin, just 30 minutes away.
  • Hudson Bend Ranch is a great place. We rented this for out of town wedding guests for my son's wedding. They all loved it and had a great time there. There's plenty of room to accommodate lots of people. The outdoor space is amazing too! Steven is a great person to work with and did everything to make sure our stay was great! We will definitely book here again!

  • Clean and bright apartment located on a beautiful ranch! Absolutely loved our stay here. It was a very quiet spot but not a far drive from local restaurants or shops. The apartment is very clean and has everything you need for your stay. Steven was also extremely hospitable and made sure we had a great stay, and also offered some great local areas to check out. Would definitely stay here again!

  • This was a GREAT option for staying in Austin, and not having to deal with the hassle of staying in town. The countryside was gorgeous to wake up to, and we loved the lit sitting area at night. The accommodations were comfortable, well thought out, and above our expectations, especially at the price! We will definitely look for this bnb the next time we stay in Austin.

  • It was fun telling people that we’d be staying in a barn, but it definitely didn’t feel like we were. Excellent, secluded and quiet area near the lake, as well as great local restaurants (Saigon Cafe, Seafood Shack, Los Pinos were all great). The yard area was beautiful, would be a great place for a gathering (wedding). It was a great quiet escape and Steven was very helpful. Thank you!

    Nick2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place

    David2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Quaint, quiet, departed from all the city noise. Cozy space with amenities available. Awesome area for pets to run around on leash. Location is close to lake Travis swimming and attractions also.

    Ursula2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome rental

    Daisy2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • We celebrated our dream wedding at Hudson Bend Ranch! It was everything we wanted and so much more! Steve is the coolest host you could ask for, very hospitable and friendly, always available with quick responses, and he just went above and beyond to make our day extra special! We are so appreciative of everything. Thank you so much Steve, everything was perfect! Love, Mr. & Mrs. Vazquez

    Austin, TX, United States

    Comfortable, rustic and raw barn house, set in country side, not too far from Austin and minutes to much shopping, restaurants and entertainment. On the property and around us, you may see goats, native wildlife and even see deer, coyote, raccoon, rabbits etc. The barn house is cozy and kept vintage and rustic. It’s kept warm in winter with great space heaters and cozy blankets. There is also an amazing, large fire pit. Freeways and train to city are minutes away. Downtown Austin, 20-30 min
    This is a unique rustic barn house placed in a beautiful country setting but within 4-5 minutes to ALOT of shopping, food and so much entertainment, just minutes from the house.
    This is a unique area where the Barn house sits. It is some of the last rural country streets in this area that all used to be large ranch homes and farms for many years. It is usually very quiet and peaceful out here but very close to everything. You can go for long walks on these country roads here. Golds gym is 3 minutes from the house in the other direction though. A Whole Foods 365 Market is 4 minutes. Costco is 5 minutes away. I LOVE this area a lot and love sharing it with others. Everything you need is within very close distance but we are lucky to also be away from all of it too. You have to see it to believe it. I hope you book with me. I promise to do my best and make it an enjoyable experience for you!
  • Great location! Nice space! Make sure to bring water. The water is salty and doesn’t taste good.

    Ana2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • This location is very spacious and has a neat, kind of vintage vibe to it. Very comfy and cozy. We all slept great in the beds. Our son said said it was the most comfortable bed he'd been on, which was pretty cute. The area is beautiful. Very close to amenities and great restaurants (try 1431 Cafe for breakfast if you like good county cooking!), but also pretty secluded. We saw a group of deer in the morning on the way back in from breakfast. Also close to some good hiking spots which we did on the way out. Jacob is very responsive and a great host. He even included additional foods, snacks, or drinks for an additional (and very nominal) charge if you wished. I look forward to visiting the area again and staying here.

    Sonya2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jacob is extremely friendly and welcoming. Loved the place and the setup. Will absolutely be staying here again the next time I'm in town! Definitely recommend!!

    Randy2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great cozy spot for locals to get away...or out of towners to have for a quiet stay while having fun in the 512.

    Britt2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing space! Wonderfully located enough in the country but really close to some fun spots and you can’t beat the price either. 😁

    Tiffany2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Super communicative host! That's always a plus, and hes definitely eager to improve his space. Wasn't as quiet as we'd thought it would be, but it was out in the country a bit as described. The house is on the second story of a goat barn so we got to look at some baby goats on site, that was neat. Make sure to bring your own drinking water though... everything is super salty and not good to drink- It's great on the skin though! Theres water on site for sale, but it's not quite the same. Would recommend for the value!

    Danylle2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is SO great. Can be a little tricky to find at night if you’re coming in for the first time, but follow the check in instructions & you’ll be fine. Super cozy and warm. Lots of space and in a great location. We stayed there to visit Austin. About a 30 min drive from the city, but still a nice getaway with a scenic view. Lots of shops & food places nearby too. Would definitely stay here again!!!

    Lexi2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Jacob is a positive, attentive host that ensures his tenant’s housing needs are met. My family and I loved feeling like we were staying remote in the country for some serene getaway time, yet all shopping amenities were 5-10 minutes away. We also appreciated the convenient store aspect where tenants can purchase reasonably priced snacks and beverages from the rental shelves and refrigerator. Thank you, Jacob. Our stay was perfect!

    Our Big Red Texas Barn is a great way to enjoy a fun & funky Texas experience for any adventures in Austin. We are 4 houses outside the Austin city limit line, 11 miles to Downtown, and also convenient to many Hill Country adventures. We have hosted singles, couples, families, groups of friends. Read complete description & reviews to see if the barn should be your home base for your next visit to ATX. IG: @MonogramPropertyServices
    The Real Texas Barn and our management of it has a few key characteristics: Comfort, Communication & Friendliness. For your Comfort we've provided: a very detailed listing description, a robust 4 year listing history, and a vast collection of throw pillows.

At 1300 sqft, the barn gives your group a calm respite to the busy city. It would take several hotel suites to rival what you'll have available to you at the barn.
    This is a quiet rural neighborhood just on the edge of the Austin city limits (we're 4 houses outside the city line). Near Hwy290/71 intersection, colloquially know as The Y in Oak Hill. Many of our neighbors have lived here for decades and much of the neighborhood remains exactly as it was built 50+ years ago when Austin was just the state capital way up North. Please be a good neighbor to both us and our neighbors at all times, but especially quiet hours 10p-8a. When you stay in the barn, you will be near to Downtown Austin (11 miles), The University of Texas (13mi), St. Edwards University (10mi), the Texas State Capital (12mi), Austin Convention Center (11.4mi), Zilker Park & Barton Springs pool (9mi), Barton Creek Greenbelt (7mi), the Circle C neighborhood(6mi), Hill Country Galleria (6mi), Lady Bird Lake (9mi), Lake Travis (18mi), Veloway (5mi), LBJ Wildflower Center (6mi), Austin Zoo (3 mi), SOCO (10mi), Grey Rock Golf Course (5.5mi), Hamilton Pool Preserve (19mi), Dripping Springs (12mi), Wineries (11mi), Deep Eddy Vodka (10mi), Camp Lucy (17mi), LifeAustin Wedding Chapel (2.4mi), Circuit of the Americas (20mi), Driftwood (14mi), and much much more. We are convenient to both Austin and the Hill Country. You can be as busy or as peaceful as you'd like. If there is a particular activity you're interested in, just let us know and we'll answer any questions we can, we're also happy to make recommendations. Our Barn Welcome Book will contain tips to all our favorite local spots.
  • Pictures do not do this property justice. Yes, they are wonderful pictures, but you will be wowed when you see the barn in person!! The property is immaculate and Kelly is such an amazing host. I had communication with Kelly about various things and asked if there was a blender or if I should bring my own. Kelly responded promptly that she would bring her Blendtec over so that I wouldn't have to pack my mini blender for protein shakes. Check in was so simple and Kelly left us eggs from her chickens in the fridge, which is such a treat and so delicious! This barn is so spacious and Kelly provided toiletries, coffee, tea, and all the supplies you would use in a kitchenette and bathroom. Kelly is also very accomodating when plans changed. I had explained that my work trip may have me leaving early and she was fine with that, but to keep her in the loop because it was still not in stone. When I finally found out my departure date and let her know, Kelly contacted customer service and adjusted my reservation; I just had to confirm the changes. This was such a huge help because work had me so busy. I can't wait to come back to Austin and stay here again!!

  • The best Air BnB experience I have had. From the time of booking to the time of check out we were very well looked after. I felt confident all the way through that we were going to have a great experience and it didn't disappoint. A lovely clean space with everything in working order. From good wifi, endless hot water, great TV and sound system, washing facilities, private parking area etc. Kelly and Josh the hosts made us feel very welcome. If i'm ever back in Austin this will be my first port of call. Very highly recommended for those that are looking for a quite spot out of town to relax in piece and quiet.

    Mark2017-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Don't hesitate to book this fabulous home in Austin. It's super clean, extremely well appointed and your hosts are a priceless asset in navigating your Austin adventures. From the initial contact through final check out, Kelly was the perfect hostess. Our family of three (including an active two year old) enjoyed the close proximity to everything in Austin plus the quieter, residential atmosphere of the barn. The Barn was our home base for naps and quiet time. We could not ask for a more perfect place to stay.

    Hilary2017-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was a comfortable stay. It's great for family get togethers.

    Daniel2017-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • The barn was nothing short of perfect! Seven of my friends and I went to ATX to celebrate my 23rd birthday, and Kelly went above and beyond to provide us with a clean, welcoming, comfortable space. She even had snacks, fresh flowers, and party hats waiting for us. It was a short drive from downtown and we had no problems when using a ride share service for going out at night. We all hope to stay again sometime!

    Leah2017-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • My husband stayed at Kelly's place for a wedding in the area. A last-minute change prevented me from being able to accompany him, but my husband very much enjoyed his time there! Kelly was always very responsive, and communication was easy and efficient. Would definitely recommend for anyone staying near Austin/Dripping Springs!

    Shelley2019-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Kelly was friendly, quick to communicate and personable and the Barn was amazing for our girls trip! Perfect location for ACL and sparkling clean. Would love to stay here again!

    Stefanie2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • The Barn was a great stay - replete with chickens and rabbits. Comfortable stay with all the amenities you need for a getaway or a whirlwind trip to ACL. Would recommend to anyone.

    An apartment above a beautifully rustic 11 stall barn. Modern amenities, fully air conditioned. 1 king bed 1 queen bed Air mattress Couch Porta crib upon request *No livestock lives in the barn.
  • So much more spacious than we originally thought! Lovely and quiet and an easy 30-minute drive to downtown Austin. The beds and furniture were all super comfortable and exactly what we needed after long days at SXSW. Jennifer was pleasant to communicate with and we wish we could stay longer. Thanks!

    Marie2017-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable beds. Unique set up, a barn made into apartments. We enjoyed our stay and will rent this space again.

    Sena2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • This lovely space, reasonably priced, features two living rooms and lovely bedrooms in addition to their kitchen and dining areas. All above a remodeled barn! The neighborhood is wonderful and quiet--you get the feeling of being in the country--and the space was sparkling clean. The location is wonderful--near shopping centers and restaurants. We look forward to returning in the Spring.

    Irene And Louis2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place and super convenient location!

    Rayne2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • So, I actually want to write a bad review so that no one will ever stay there and it would always be available for me. But I can’t! This place was amazing! Jennifer was great! Awesome communication. And the barndominium was incredible. I highly recommend this place and will definitely be back again!

    Abe2018-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful trip and highly recommend staying here, we will gladly stay again! Location is peaceful and scenic while still being right off the main road for easy access to Cedar Park, Round Rock and surrounding areas. The space is very large, well decorated with thoughtful touches, and super comfortable. Also great for babies and toddlers as there are no stairs once you enter the main steps coming in from outside. Host is great and good communication. A wonderful stay!

    Alisa2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • This stay was perfect! Plenty of room for the whole family.

    Aaron2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • The barn was amazing. Very cozy and welcoming. Jennifer has done a great job decorating the home. Very clean and comfortable beds, towels, and furnishings. The space was large with two living room spaces and two full bedrooms. My kids had a wonderful time exploring the barn and chasing the chickens. Jennifer shared farm eggs with our family for breakfast and a fire pit for the evenings. There was a basketball court and plenty of space for our dogs to roam around. We had a blast! I look forward to staying again.

  • Great space, very open and comfortable. Chickens were a great plus. A touch of county stuffed in the suburbs of the city. Amazingly quiet and close to just about anything you could want.

    Aaron2018-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place was comfortable. It felt like my home way from way for a business trip.

    Dawn2018-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Pros: Kelly's place is spacious and clean. Beautiful place. Great shower. Good location. Communicative and helpful hosts. Cons: Requires signing an 8 pages rental agreement outside Airbnb platform, there is a charge for late check outs and leaving your luggage is no option.

    Lym2018-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • 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!!!

    Jake2017-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and stay. Everything better than advertised. Loved it.

    Tracy2017-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for a great time in Austin. While weather did not cooperate we enjoyed our time and hope to be back soon. Your space is perfect for 2-6 people and the Barn is a well thought through concept. Please tell your guests to experience the Austin Public Library (downtown) and Austin's BBQ is not to be missed.

    Thomas2018-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication, clean and excellent attention to detail. We loved our stay.

    Edward2018-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • 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.
