My sister and I celebrated her birthday this past weekend in Austin. We spent two nights at the Gateway Guest House (Master suite), and we really enjoyed our room, the beautiful house and the amazing breakfasts. Being dog lovers, we were both crazy over the three dogs that live at B&B. Uber taxi rides from the Guest house to S.... More

Having booked in January we had looked forward to this 2 night stay for a long time.The main reason for booking was the look of the food mentioned and shown on the guesthouse website.

Blaise and Bess are delightful hosts--just the right amount of attentive. Great location--close but not in the middle of the action. Sipping morning coffee in the shady backyard oasis listening to the fountain--perfection!

A wonderful and charming place near everything, yet quiet and removed. The loft was perfect for us. Small but well designed. Extremely comfortable, immaculately clean and well appointed. The property includes off street parking and a pool/spa. Wonderful breakfast by the pool. Very close to walking,jogging,biking,kayaking,downtown,parks,etc.

We are so glad you liked the Loft. Frankly, it's one of our favorite spaces because it is so quiet and private, even if you do need to be 'part billy-goat' for the steps! It was wonderful to have you stay with us and we hope to see you again very soon. B&B More

My husband and I stayed at Gateway Guesthouse over Labor Day weekend and we LOVED it! The house was super cute and comfortable, the owners are so sweet and welcoming, it's walking distance to so many great spots, and each morning you wake up to the smell of a DELICIOUS breakfast. Couldn't recommend more!

We had a wonderful quick getaway at the guesthouse. The breakfast was delicious. Bess and Blaise were very courteous and even printed out directions for our dinner spot without being asked. We wish we could have stayed longer to visit.
