We had a great experience staying here for 4 nights. Location was what we wanted (close to campus) and the price was reasonable for what we got. Breakfast was awesome every morning. Phobe and staff and VERY friendly and accomodating. Unfortunately an eviction was taking place as we left, so make sure to call ahead before booking online. Sounded like...

We made a quick trip to Austin to see "Tuna Does Las Vegas" at the Paramount Theatre and were lucky enough to find a room at Carrington's Bluff. It is truly an oasis just off MLK Blvd and near the university and downtown. We stayed in the cottage in a room with 2 queen beds. There were 3 of us...

Phoebe was a great caring host at this historic and quaint little B&B in Austin, Tx. We're from California and relatively new to B&B. We met great people, the history was interesting, and the service as good as one would expect at a B&B. It is very near the UT campus and downtown which we found entertaining. Great restaurant recommendations...

Although the rooms were clean and the outside was pretty, we were a little bit disappointed in the overall experience. The breakfast was good but set up buffet style. At previous B&Bs the breakfast was served which is really a nice touch which makes you feel pampered. Plus, the breakfast room felt really dark and drab. After the first morning,...

My wife and I just returned from a four-night stay over the July 4th holiday, and had a wonderful time. Not only is Carrington's Bluff a beautiful, comfortable home in a lush, peaceful setting (and just blocks from downtown Austin), but Phoebe, the innkeeper, goes above and beyond the call of duty with her Texas-sized hospitality. We'll definitely return!

Just returned from a stay in Austin. Loved the city and couldn't be happier with our stay at Carrington's Bluff. A very relaxed and hospitable bed and breakfast. The setting is lovely with garden lit up at night. Breakfast was delicious. Phoebe was a wonderful hostess. For the reasonable price, this place can't be beat.

We were on a tight schedule in Austin, and Phoebe made our stay easy and charming. It was an easy drive to downtown - we just wished we could have spent more time on the grounds!

We just returned from another great stay at Carrington's Bluff. It has long been our bed and breakfast of choice when in Austin. It is even more special under the caring hand of innkeeper, Phoebe Williams. The rooms are well decorated and clean and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfasts are fantastic (try the homemade granola). Last month we...

We found this cozy b&b looking for a place near UT, where our daughter is doing research during this summer. The peaceful house is located in a forest on a hill. Phoebe, the inkeeper, is a young and friendly lady with a joyful baby, who please each and every host. We recommend the place without reserves.

A lovely oasis with a friendly & endearing inn keeper -and- wireless highspeed internet! My husband & I stayed at Carrington's Bluff in June while shooting a documentary ( --- ) and we were thoroughly charmed by Phoebe & her B&B. Comfy common rooms & bedrooms, rocking chairs on the patio, communal kitchens & dining rooms. Another plus - Phoebe...
