Perfect, private retreat

This is a lovely little place, perfect for a couple. It is well equipped and thoughtfully put together - large, windows overlook lovely trees and bring in beautiful light. It is situated in a great neighborhood walking distance to shops and restaurants. We highly recommend it!
Another thing worth mentioning is we had a mixup on the dates we would be there. Char thought we were staying longer than we were due to my original inquiry which I later adjusted. When i brought this to her attention, it was no problem whatsoever. Our bill was adjusted accordingly - no issue at all. We appreciated that kind of graciousness!

The Forest Retreat was a lovely little cottage in a wooded area in Travis Heights, Austin ,Tx. It's centrally located in a funky cool neighborhood. Walking distance from many desirable locations. We had a great time over the 4th of July holiday.

We stayed in the guest house in June and had a wonderful time. It's close to EVERYTHING, clean, well-equipped with everything you might need and Charlotte and Wolf are lovely hosts. We couldn't have been happier. Highly recommended place to stay!

This was such a lovely house and so peaceful and clean. We also loved walking to the wonderful restaurants nearby and on the hike a bike trail.
