Austin Folk House Bed & Breakfast

506 West 22nd St., Austin, Texas 78705
Innkeeper(s): Sylvia Mackey

Room One

Room One is the only room in the house with an external entrance. This makes it ideal for those who want to stay out late, or want to enjoy some extra privacy.


  • A queen size sleigh bed
  • An attractive wardrobe
  • A nice parque floor
  • Bathroom has a tub and shower, and full amenities

Room Two

Room 2 is one of the preferred rooms downstairs. It is very cozy and adventurous.


  • Tall ceilings
  • Room Two is right across from the kitchen, in the downstairs hall (as in, "close to the fresh cookies!")
  • Queen sized four poster bed
  • Bathroom has a tub and a shower

Room Three

Room Three is downstairs, near the dining area. The comforter was handmade by one of Sylvia's good friends. It gives the room a warm, welcoming feel.


  • Queen-sized bed
  • The bathroom has a shower (accessible by wheelchair)

Room Four

Room Four is the host's choice. Hopefully I'll be able to get new photos of the room, now that it has been painted crimson.


  • King-sized bed with an iron bed frame
  • Same bedding as owned by the famous TV family
  • This room is upstairs
  • Antique desk
  • Classy old dresser
  • Bathroom features a tub and a shower

Room Five

Room Five has the most peaceful feel in the house. It almost has a hunting lodge feel, mainly because the focus of the room is the large, grainy, antique armoir that dominates the room. The rest of the room definitely reinforces the effect: earth tones and more rich, beautiful wood.


  • King-sized bed
  • Rooms Five and Six are at the end of a long hall, making them ideal for small groups wanting to stay close
  • Bathroom has a tub and a shower

Room Six

Room Six is a very nice room. If we were a cheesy place, we'd call this "Lover's Hideaway."


  • King size bed
  • An old dresser
  • A nice red chair
  • Antique desk
  • Room Six is a bit secluded, and is perfect for romantic getaways with chocolate and champagne
  • Shower

Room Seven

Room Seven is definitely the most romantic room. All of the colors are crimson and gold, giving a very regal, almost formal feeling.


  • The room is dominated by an ornate, king size canopy bed
  • Bathroom has a tub and a shower

Room Eight

Room Eight is pretty cool. This room is also upstairs, in the main hall. The coverlet on the bed was handmade by a good friend of ours.


  • An iron queen sized bed
  • A very dark wood armoire
  • A unique bookshelf
  • Dresser and all of the usual amenities
  • Bathroom has a tub and a shower

Room Nine

Room Nine is the first room upstairs with some of the nicer furniture in the house.


  • A queen size bed
  • The armoire is old and very large, and in very good shape
  • The old chair and the vanity are also in great shape
  • Bathroom has a tub and a shower
