Experience the century-old simplicity and ambiance of the Old School, a centrally-located historic home, whose broad, sweeping porches look out over the Austin landscape. The spacious rooms and grounds make the perfect site to host festivities. The location is easy walking distance to the Capitol, Sixth Street, restaurants like Franklin's barbeque, hip east side bars, and galleries.
A suite of three upstairs bedrooms sleep six. Amenities include wifi, parking, and flat screen television, large comfortable living room, inviting outdoor spaces with native plants and antique roses, spacious porches with rocking chairs, and welcoming cats. Relax and unwind in this unique space.
The Old School is also convenient to bus stops and light rail.
The Oat Willie Room, named after the cartoon character modeled on a former occupant (who also invented the saying, "Onward through the Fog") has a queen poster bed, high ceilings, pine flooring, and a shared bathroom. The room has direct access to an upstairs balcony and city views.
You must be able to climb steep stairs.
Smoking outside only 15 feet from building. No unregistered guests. Please be careful of wood floors.
I grew up in South Jersey outside of Philly. My family came from Wyoming and I like to visit there and go fishing each summer. I have been lucky to mother a number of children as a step mother, foster mother, adoptive mother and birth mother. My children have become teachers, chaplains, peace corps volunteers, activists, union organizers, business persons, and parents themselves. I am a Legal Aid lawyer and general agitator for justice. I hope we leave the world a better place because of our actions.
