It might be the heyday of the sharing economy and boutique hotels, but true B&Bs still rule when it comes to homey friendliness. A lovingly restored Colonial Revival tucked into the heart of Hyde Park, Adams House offers the luxurious, roomy digs of a country home in a walkable, central urban neighborhood; Duval’s restaurant row, groceries, and the flag store are all steps away, and it’s conveniently located for car and bus travel, too. Your other, practically perennial fave – Austin Folk House, so named for the rich display of outsider art in its hallway – is joined by its two-building sister space, Star of Texas Inn, this year. All three are located in the slightly more bustling West Campus area/central city, but they carve out calm and beautiful spaces of warmth and respite within.
