The Austin Folk House is a charming bed and breakfast that actually offers the closest accommodations to the University of Texas at Austin, making it popular around graduation and other major university events. Each of the rooms has bath robes, hair dryers, shaving mirrors right in the showers, irons with ironing boards, a bubble bath and bath pillows, alarm clocks that combine a radio and sound machine, bed sheets with a high thread count, free local phone service, cable TV, access to the video library, and Internet access. The nine rooms each have their own personality and décor. Some rooms have king or queen beds, iron bed frames, antique desks, antique armoires, handmade coverlets, and tubs in addition to the shower.
Guests enjoy sitting on the south-facing front porch and people watching or eating their breakfast outside. You will also find a small sitting area with a great view of the Capitol. The day begins with a delicious homemade breakfast, and the bed and breakfast can usually accommodate special diet needs.
