My husband and I are retired and winter in the Florida Keys. We wanted to spend several days visiting Austin Texas before returning to Minnesota. This was the perfect place to stay. Our room was spacious for the two of us, plush bedding and quiet nights for sleeping, and plenty of space to set up our computers and make this a "home away from home" as we explored the Austin area. I loved the huge bathroom with two sinks, plush towels, and robes. The views are wonderful overlooking Lake Travis and the countryside. We watched songbirds coming to the feeders every morning and enjoyed the sunsets and privacy. The property is in a quiet upscale neighborhood on a secluded lot yet close to restaurants and shopping. Nathan gave us everything we needed to explore the Austin area, recommending restaurants and activities. He's a fascinating man, a gourmet cook, an author of several books, well traveled and accommodating. His breakfasts are outstanding. Thank you, Nathan, for making our first visit to Austin so wonderful. I hope our paths cross again.

Clean and comfortable room with a spectacular view. My boyfriend and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend here. Nathan was a kind, friendly, accomodating host who respected our privacy but was also available if we needed him. He is also an excellent cook and provided us with delicious breakfasts both mornings. Jasper was well-trained and never bothered us. Overall, the perfect weekend getaway- we are very happy we chose this B&B.

I was looking for a place for some alone time and stress relief from work and found this gem nested in the beautiful area of Hudson Bend. This B&B was a little different than other traditional B&B's I've visited, however its uniqueness only made the experience more pleasurable. From the room you have a full view of the lake and horizon and is absolutely beautiful to view from sunup to sundown. The inside includes a large bathroom with a spa tub and separate shower, and a large walk-in closet to hold all your luggage and clothes. Outside you have a porch swing and hammock to relax outside and enjoy the lovely Austin weather. Also outside is several acres of land, with a trail that leads to a cleared area to watch sunsets, or to just enjoy nature at your leisure. Breakfast was always fresh, and Nathan put a lot of work into each breakfast. Each meal came with fresh OJ, coffee, and fruits. During my stay I had french toast, quiche, and croissants. All the breakfasts were delicious and was my highlight of the stay. I will point out, the meals are not a traditional Southern type of just eggs and bacon; each meal was freshly made and looked like professional chef had prepared the plate and rich in taste. Tranquility is located near plenty of eateries, bars, and other attractions, and Nathan was very helpful with providing a list of recommendations. It was nice that everything was close by and easy to find. Overall I had a great time at this B&B and I would recommend it if you're looking for a unique Austin B&B experience, or looking for a romantic hideaway.

Beautiful room with a spectacular view. Nathan was a delight, and went out of his way to accommodate my very complicated dietary restrictions at no extra cost. Fortunately, my husband was able to eat all the wonderful fresh, local French pastries (including the homemade quiche!). The room was charming and well-appointed. Our privacy was respected, but he was available as needed. Highlights included Jasper the B&B dog, a beautifully restored classic car, Nathan's anecdotes and the phenomenal views and sunset! We will be back.
