Strickland Arms Bed and Breakfast

604 East 47th Street , Austin, TX 78751 USA (Show map)


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.

A Lovely Vacation Stay

5 on October 19, 2017

The Strickland Arms Bed & Breakfast is a wonderful old mansion filled with beautiful antiques and run by very friendly owners. All of the bedrooms are so inviting that it will be difficult to decide which one to stay in on our next visit! One bedroom has a hanging swing, while others have a jacuzzi tub or wrap around windows. Coffee was always available in the dining room, and the breakfast included juice, teas, good coffee, fresh fruit, croissants or muffins, and eggs. There is a mini fridge outside the rooms containing lots of cold bottled water, as well as pretty, cut-glass wine and champagne glasses. A wine/bottle opener and towels for the pool and hot tub are available, as well as plastic cups for the pool or hot tub area. We loved our stay at the the Strickland Arms B&B, which is where we will stay the next time we are visiting Austin!

Relaxed, comfortable and very friendly

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!

Beautiful, Very Special Hospitality.
