Located in a quiet, residential neighborhood, Strickland Arms is walking distance to Shipe Park, Elisabet Ney Museum, Austin landmark restaurants, and coffee and other specialty shops. Featuring twelve-foot ceilings, formal dining and living areas, wrap-around antebellum style porch (complete with rattan swings), a private back yard and French patterned garden veranda(under construction), the native limesone, turn-of-the-century, 5000 square foot home will take you back to a time when things were much simpler. You will forget the hustle and bustle when you step through our antique wrought iron gate and walk through the beautiful baroque fountain garden shaded by a massive red oak and pecan trees, up the limestone front steps, and past the twin giant great dane statues that guard the front door of Strickland Arms.

We came to visit the LBJ library. This is a very well run, laid-back B & B. My visit exceeded expectations and I would definitely return. What a surprising gem!

Nice & quiet, exactly what I needed. beautifully kept, breakfast was perfect, owners could not have been more hospitable. We enjoyed their company, the outdoor fireplace & hot tub. A truly beautiful home.

We stayed in Sir David's Room and was absolutely impressed by his hospitality. We had a beautiful view through the windows of the back gardens with the pool and trees. The breakfast was so nice with delicious coffee, yummy orange juice, fresh eggs, fruit, and amazing biscuits with jam. We would definitely stay here again, it was so soothing, a little oasis in the heat of Texas spring, a home away from home.
