Local contacts are quite literally necessary to stay at this small inn.
A wide front porch welcomes visitors to this bed-and-breakfast that is named for its owners' last home in Blackburn, England. To retain the quaint feel, the proprietors limit accommodations to guests of local North Lake Travis residents. If you're in-the-know enough to make that cut, you can take advantage of one of the two guest rooms. They are appropriately nicknamed the Queen and King, thanks to their respective bed sizes. Both are situated in a guest wing and have private baths and their own entryway off the porch. Displaying white walls and pine furniture, the rooms are sunny and bright. To unwind, guests can relax atop their quilt-covered bed and enjoy a British comedy borrowed from the inn's video library. The property is located about 40 minutes outside Austin. Golf, tennis and lake activities can be found in the immediate area. Views of the hill country and the north shore of Lake Travis make this a peaceful option.
