"Everything was lovely.  Thank you.  I only wish it could have been a longer stay. In the “going the extra mile” category:  My colleague and I were given a ride by one of the Inn staffers (I don’t think we even got his name!) to our meeting in downtown.  We really appreciated it."
-  Renee, San Diego, CA

"Just wanted to say thank you for allowing me to stay in the Cottage at the last minute.  Your B&B is very nice and I will look you up again (hopefully with more time in advance).  I had a wonderful weekend in Austin."  
- Jan, Nashville, TN

"Just a note to let you know how much my husband and I enjoyed our stay at your lovely inn.  We booked the Gothic Room for 4 days and found it to be very comfortable with plenty of storage areas. We used the balcony for reading and relaxing.  We looked forward each evening unwinding in the jacuzzi from our excursions around Austin and ended our day watching television on a flat screen t.v.  This is what vacations are all about for us.  Another great benefit of staying at your inn was its location near to the downtown area.  We were always just minutes away from the activities we had planned for the day, whether it was touring the capitol, visiting the Bob Bullock museum, experiencing the Duck Tour or watching the bats leave each sunset from their home under the Congress Avenue Bridge.  Thank you so much for making us feel welcome.  We left Austin with many wonderful memories."   
- Bill and Sue, Chicago, IL

Staying at the Inn was one of the best decisions I ever made!! My stay was absolutely perfect from beginning to end. No complaints whatsoever - only my heartfelt gratitude to everyone. 

A special mention for John, who not only made the best Quiche in Texas - he acted as an unpaid tourist guide and top source of information on all things "Texas". John did everything he could for myself and every other guest who was there. Crystal was extremely helpful when I was making my reservation via the Internet and very efficient when I was staying. Maria felt like my "personal maid" because she was so attentive to every cleaning detail. Not enough space to convey all my thanks. Jill, you have done a marvelous job here. I have told everyone back home in Scotland about all you and your staff did for me. I look forward to returning - just as soon as I can."
- Anne, Scotland

Wedding/Event Testimonials
"I am so thankful to Crystal (staff). She was so efficient about getting prices for us, and automatically knew just how to arrange everything to suit our needs. She very capably handled our food needs and made it look pretty to boot. She knew we were nervous about handling this shower site unseen, but she reassured us at every opportunity. When we arrived, she was there and could literally read our minds and know our needs. During the shower, she was very quietly and discreetly helping us with various tasks. She truly made our experience delightful. The bride, groom, and guests were all amazed. Everyone had a great time and all agreed the setting made the party. Thank you so much. We appreciate everything that was done to make our event very special and really effortless on our part. You have a beautiful inn and some really special and capable people on your staff."

"The staff was invisible during the wedding.  They were able to move chairs without the guests or us even being aware. The Inn is without a doubt a hidden treasure in Austin."
- Jamie, Beaumont, TX

"We planned my son’s wedding at Austin ’s Inn at Pearl Street in June 2007.  I can’t say enough about the staff.  Unfortunately it rained… but I  commend the staff for being so attentive to every detail.  They worked very hard at keeping things as dry as possible, even included small tents without request.   The facility is spectacular and was perfect in the wedding pictures.  The food was wonderful, the bar service was great.   Jill was always available throughout the planning process to make suggestions and to help guide us.   I would not hesitate to recommend this facility and this staff to handle your wedding or other event.   Thanks again for a job well done!"
 - Peggy, Chicago, IL
