Best Week with Family

5 on July 31, 2014

What a beautiful location and accommodations. Pat and Byron are the most gracious and thoughtful hosts with a great knowledge of the area. Great conversations at breakfast while enjoying a magnificent meal. Will definitely return with family and pooch!


Fabulous stay

This was a fabulous bed and breakfast out in the country while still close to Austin. Pat and Byron were very friendly and the breakfast was amazing!


Best Place Ever

5 on June 03, 2013

This was our second visit and we had a wonderful and relaxing time (along with our three Miniature Schnauzers!). The breakfasts are so delicous, made from organic farm products, eggs, vegetables, fruits and the portions are large. We did not need to eat again until 3:00 or 4:00 PM each day. Pat and Byron are the perfect host and hostess. The cabins are excellently appointed for both people and pets! We just cannot say enough about what a winderful time we have each time we visit !!


Dog-friendly Country Paradise

5 on April 29, 2013

My husband, our greyhound son, and I just completed our second stay at Decker Creek. Once again, all three of us had a wonderful time. The hosts, Pat, Byron and their three dogs were friendly and welcoming. We stayed in cabin one. Each time, there was another party in cabin two. We enjoyed chatting with the hosts and other guest(s) during breakfast, and it was refreshing to be in the company of other dog lovers. Speaking of breakfast, it is home-cooked and absolutely scrumptious. The hosts accommodated both my vegetarian diet and my husband's non-vegetarian diet. The property is the ideal place for a dog to run, sniff, explore and even take a swim. And for those doing agility, there is even an agility field guests are welcome to use. Decker Creek is in a remote, relaxing location yet not far from Austin. It is the perfect getaway. I try to patronize primarily dog-friendly businesses, and Decker Creek is our favorite B&B. We hope to return soon.


Quaint, Private, Versatile

Cabins are separated by forest and out of view of each other. Cabins are well set up with open floor plan and large screened porch with swing and a great view. Very well kept cabins are great for couples or a small family, hiking trails & creek on the property. Breakfast was awesome!


Our 10th Anniversary Trip

5 on January 06, 2013

Everything about Decker Creek Bed,Breakfast, and Biscuit is well thought out and totally relaxing. The owners make homemade country breakfast, the cabins have everything you need and more , and our dog enjoyed the 30 ancres and the creek to play in! We are going back in February and cannot wait! Thank you Pat and Byron for making our 10th wedding anniversary one to remember. You have a wonderful establishment!


Great stay with Dogs!

We loved staying there! Our dogs loved it, too. Exploring the property and playing with the host's dogs! Breakfasts were great with dogs!


Wonderful dog-friendly getaway

5 on October 08, 2012

My dogs and I had a wonderful, relaxing long-weekend getaway at Decker Creek. The property and cabin (#1, Hilltop) were wonderful. My dogs loved the fenced yard, screened porch, and the creek, and I appreciated the attention to detail -- from the local bath products to the comfy pillows to the dog towels and homemade dog biscuits. Full country breakfasts were delicious, made even more pleasant by the company of the delightful hosts and their fur children. I was invited to bring my dogs to breakfast but chose to enjoy Beau, Razr, and Shiva instead. Pat cheerfully accommodated my special dietary requests. If you're looking for a relaxing, comfortable getaway with your dogs, look no further. Pat & Byron go out of their way to make their guests feel like family. We'll definitely be back!


25th Wedding Anniversary trip

5 on March 19, 2012

We are so thankful to have found Decker Creek B&B&B! We wanted to bring our dogs along with us on this trip so that we could do some outdoor activities with them. Decker Creek was more than we could have hoped for--great owners (Byron and Pat), great food (you will not go hungry at breakfast!), great opportunity for getting out with the dogs on the property, and a great cabin with a huge fenced-in yard for the pups! Decker Creek was the perfect place for us, and we so very much enjoyed our stay! We will definitely be back! And you should come visit, too. ;)


Fabulous!

5 on March 05, 2012

All I can say is amazing! I stayed four nights with my 2 Labs. The cabin was perfect - super comfortable and clean (no way you'd know dogs stayed there if you weren't told!), and the fenced back yard was huge. The bed was better than in most hotels, nice big shower and the screened porch was a perfect place to relax after a long day. More than anything, it was the "little things" - boots of varying sizes for walking the Labs after it had rained; plenty of doggie towels, even for my water-loving girls; a supply of DVDs and books; and, of course, the yummy of dog biscuits. I was there on business, but being able to take my dogs with me to such a lovely place made it feel a lot less like work. And Pat & Byron a true gems. If you're like me and have a hard time finding places to stay with the four-legged members of your family, look no further in the Austin area. And even if you don't have dogs, treat yourself to a peaceful weekend at Decker Creek. I will unquestionably be back!
