Nestled in the SoCo area of Austin is the most relaxing and restorative little enclave otherwise know as the Park Lane Guest House. Your hostess, Shakti, created and serves the amazing retreat that she built herself over the course of 20 some years (ask her about the story), some houses from all reclaimed materials. . . . enveloped by lovely gardens, a hand tiled pool that really feels more like a grotto. . . . . and the most amazing breakfast delivered right to your door. The attention to subtle details transports you to a quiet contented serenity. The entire experience is a delight to the senses and the soul. Pure Joy!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Park Lane Guest House on our recent trip to Austin. The location cannot be beat, very convenient to everything. Our hosts were very accommodating and helpful and the little cottage we stayed in was very comfortable. Highly recommended!

My husband and I just returned from our second stay at Park Lane Guest House. We LOVE this urban get-away, a few quiet blocks from Austin’s ultra-hip “SoCo” (South Congress Ave), where trendy restaurants, live music, one-of-a-kind shops, and local coffee shops abound.

The grounds are peaceful and quiet - a walled garden oasis replete with running fountain and beautiful pool. We stayed in the Garden Cottage, perfect for a couple’s weekend. (We stayed in the wonderful Carriage House for our first stay.) Filled with antiques, wonderful textiles and art, little guest conveniences, and amazingly comfortable beds, each guest cottage is a world of its own. Semi-private porches look out onto the central courtyard, shaded by a huge old oak tree. Somewhat incongruously, these cottages, which have been so lovingly renovated to evoke a 1920s charm, are ultramodern in their plumbing, heating/cooling, etc.

Ready for a gourmet breakfast? Eggs from their hens, grapefruit from their tree ... a truly special repast. And brought to you by one of the cheerful owners with the friendliest little pups to greet you. We will return to Park Lane.

Austin was having a cold spell, so Shakti was kind enough to move us to the Garden Cottage, whose heating system could handle the unseasonably low temperatures, at the same cost. We loved both our room there and the Vicky Cottage with its loft bed. We loved the fact that Vicky Cottage was made of reclaimed parts of historic buildings. It was tiny but extremely well designed and had everything we needed.

Breakfasts were super, delivered to our door each morning and filled with different, and delicious, dishes each day. All amenities were high quality - fluffy towels, amazingly comfy bed and linens, fast wifi, organic teas, etc.

The location is great if you have a car (there's parking), and not bad if you don't. Since we were on foot and reliant on public transport, it did prove a bit far from things, but that's a function of the size of the city and its relatively poor public transport (compared to what we're used to). We were certainly close enough to restaurants (and an Amy's ice cream) for meals.

Her advice for things to do was spot on.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any room, though note that the bed in Vicky Cottage is a loft accessible via ladder.

Park Lane Guest House is a beautiful oasis conveniently located just a few blocks from South Congress and an easy 1/2 mile walk into downtown. I am a business traveler and found the accommodation to be exactly what I needed; quiet, very comfortable and relaxing. Starting the day off with Shakti's organic breakfast and gourmet coffee was such a treat-especially given the fact her two adorable dogs, Layla and Olivia, acted as co-ambassadors for getting the day started off right! I got snowed in while in town and couldn't get back home so Shakti graciously extended my stay at the same rate over the weekend. I cant say enough about this beautiful place. I will definitely be back!!
