Relax or enjoy Austin's sights from this unique setting: a beautifully restored Craftsman-style house built in 1911 and registered as an Austin Historical Landmark. It sits on a beautifully landscaped 1/2 acre lot in the quiet Hyde Park area, just north of the University of Texas campus. Completely renovated, yet conserving the graceful ambience of the original home, Harris Park Guest House is furnished with an eclectic mix of antiques and mid-twentieth century modern furniture. The fully equipped kitchen and formal dining room are ideal for cooking, dining, even entertaining. Sightsee, explore, eat out at your choice of wonderful nearby restaurants. Just minutes by car or foot from UT, downtown, the capitol!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This was our first trip to Austin, Jim and Ann were awesome with everything we requested.
We spent mornings drinking coffee on the back patio under the canopy of the oak trees. Heirlooms filled the home with warmth and ambiance while enjoyed our friends and families company.
We elected to stay at the property even though the parking at the property was under construction during our stay, Ann made arrangements with the construction company not to inconvience our mornings. Large kitchen for cooking great culinary feast, or snacks if your not into fixing your own meals.
We found it convienently located for downtown access and night life. If your visiting the college you are withing walking distance. Property is located approx 20 minutes from the Airport in rush hour traffic, no accidents.
Next trip to Austin we would definitely do a return trip to Ann and Jim's Historical Haven if it is available.
