The Woodburn House Bed and Breakfast is an elegant three-story home built in 1909 in Hyde Park, a national register historical district located two miles from downtown Austin, Texas and 1 mile from the University of Texas at Austin.
The house was named for Bettie Hamilton Woodburn, who bought the house with her husband in 1924. She was the daughter and speechwriter of Andrew Jackson Hamilton, a provisional governor of Texas and the personal friend of Abraham Lincoln.
Today, the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated a City of Austin historical Landmark.
Built in the tradition of the grand plantation homes of the South, the Woodburn House features magnificent double wraparound porches, spectacular leaded glass windows, and eleven foot ceilings with original woodwork and pocket doors.
The house is decorated with a mix of period antiques and more recent furniture to provide a very comfortable atmosphere for guests. The den provides a cozy environment for watching television, playing games or reading books from the library. The elegant sitting room provides a more formal environment to sit and talk with guests or the Innkeepers.
The family-run bed and breakfast is managed by Innkeepers, Kristen and Noel De La Rosa.
Guest accommodations include a choice of six rooms, all with their own warmth and unique décor and enhanced by original woodwork and period antiques (Guest accomodations).
Nestled under a grove of native pecan trees, the house sits on a quiet corner in Hyde Park, located in the heart of Austin, Texas. Hyde Park is the cities oldest suburb, located just a mile from the University of Texas and two miles from Downtown Austin, and home to a public golf course, art museum, neighborhood grocery store, community theatre, park and swimming pool and numerous shops and restaurants.
