“Great B&B - Highly recommend”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at Adams House B&B for the weekend. The W.T. Adams room was perfect. There is a beautiful comfortable king size bed in the bedroom and a comfortable seating area on the sun porch. Baked goods and fruit in the kitchen throughout he day were very tasty. Eric and Liz are excellent hosts, there if you need them, but not too much. Breakfast was excellent both mornings.
Hyde Park is a wonderful neighborhood. It is like stepping back in time to family and friends out in the neighorbood. We enjoyed walking to restaurants for dinnerSaturday and Sunday nights.
Adams House is going on the top of our list of places to stay in Austin.

Stayed May 2014

Hey folks!
Thanks so much for the kind words and we are sure happy you chose to stay with us. We agree - we try to be there for our guests if they have questions or need directions but we don't like to be "helicopter innkeepers" and always getting in your way while your here trying to relax and have fun. Please come back and see us whenever you can!

Best,
Eric & Liz

We had visited Austin last year and stayed at the Adams House; there was no questions as to where we would stay during our visit this year. The location is great; the house is super clean and with great amenities. Breakfast was as awesome this year as it was last. With family in Austin, there is no question where we will stay when we visit.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Hyde Park Room and liked it a lot.

Hi Deb!
Thanks so much for staying with us again. We hope to see you on your next trip to Austin. We love repeat guests who feel that this is their home away from home. We recently added Blue Bell Ice Cream to the freezer upstairs for guests to enjoy... So we will see you soon!

We loved this beautiful Bed & Breakfast. In a great location to walk for dinner and drinks, and such great personal touches by the staff. The homemade breakfast is divine! Our new yearly vacation spot in Austin!

Stayed one night during the week (in the Hyde Park room) so I could attend a concert at Austin City Limits Live. Coming off of Hwy 71 (which is how one would come from the airport), the place is easy, breezy to find. Located in an older, quiet neighborhood, but one where people go out and walk, walk their pets, etc. A place where people go out and *live*. Just down the road, however, is plenty to see and do. Getting to ACL was so straightforward from Adams House. Guadalupe St is just blocks away, and the parking garage I use for ACL is right off this street (the City Hall parking garage, right next door to ACL (by a block) and $5 to park, at least during the week). After the concert, right there on the way back on Guadalupe, is Kirby Lane Cafe. Their migas is *deeelish* and I also had some lemon-poppy french toast. The perfect spot for a post concert meal. There is a small refrigerator at Adams House, so I was able to bring back leftovers. Back in my room late, I don't recall hearing any guests, and in the morning, the water was hot for my mid-morning shower. The bed is really comfortable (for me), but the mattress might be a bit firm for those who like sleeping on something more forgiving. I slept like a baby, though. The breakfast at Adams House was *really* good - homemade granola, yogurt, fruit, quiche, biscuits, jam, coffee, tea, etc. The other guests were fun to talk with, and just added to the stay. I would *definitely* stay again based on the fabulous hosts, Liz and Eric (who will have the lowdown on the music scene in Austin, just ask), the room, the neighborhood, the breakfasts, and the easy access to the sights.

Glad you found us and glad you enjoyed the concert. "The National" was all abuzz on Facebook the next day so you know how to pick great music. Come back and see us anytime, especially if you can stay longer! Thanks for the kind words and for writing a great review!

My husband and I stayed at the Adams House for 5 nights in April. This place is in a GREAT location because it is NOT located in the bustling downtown, but only a short drive to get there. It is located in the Hyde Park neighborhood which is a charming area complete with restaurants, a small grocery store, gas station and bakery with in walking distance. We ate at The Hyde Park Grill, and Quacks Bakery multiple times and ate at the vegan/vegetarian friendly Mother's Cafe once.

The B&B itself is lovely. Decorated nicely, clean rooms and common areas, and ample parking. The breakfasts are delicious and the homemade granola is amazing. My only suggestion would be to offer a choice for breakfast or switch between a sweet and savory dish each morning. I'm from New England, "the land of B&B's" so I have always liked the breakfast option and/ or variety in the B&B's I have stayed at throughout New England. Please don't take that as a negative, the food was fantastic.

Stay here! You won't be disappointed.

I finally enjoyed the delights of Adams House. Over the years, UT football games, graduations, Austin City Limits music fest, SxSW, 5K races, Adams House has always been booked. I am glad to report, I finally made it to Adams House! I have stayed in almost all the B & B properties in Austin, and I enjoyed this one the most. The Innkeepers, Eric and Liz are very nice and make you feel like family. Bed and linens were comfortable. Eric cooked breakfast of mushroom quiche, fruit, homemade granola, and a jam filled popover, which was delicious. Just the right amount of sweetness, and melt in your mouth texture. I certainly hope to return soon!

The Adams house is located in the Hyde Park area of Austin just to the north of the University of Texas. There are restaurants, a grocery store and cheese shops within easy walking distance. We enjoyed the restaurant Asti just down the street. Although our room and bathroom were small, innkeepers Eric and Liz had put some thoughtful planning into them, and they were,for the most part, comfortable and efficient. But the bed was the highlight of the space...comfortable with lovely sheets...we sleep well. The shower was also nice. But, by far, the best part was the breakfast. One to really set you out on your day with a great start. Homemade granola, with yogurt and fruit, a variety of quiches and frittatas and fabulous biscuits and muffins. Eric was also very helpful with directions and ideas on how to access Austin's rich music scene. Overall, a very great stay!

Room Tip: Spring for the largest room you can afford.
