Texas is huge, as you may already know. This means a vast selection of cool Airbnbs, in a multitude of styles. One of the styles that you will commonly find upon your search is the most lovely cottages. Whether set near bustling cities like Austin, or near tourist hotspots like San Antonio, those who like a lot of engagement will find something perfect for them. However, tucked away in the wine country or a quiet patch of forest, are many other retreats for travelers looking for refuge. With a bit of variety, these are our favorite cottage Airbnb’s in Texas.
“Cabin” has been combined with “cottage” in this newly renovated abode, which sits picturesquely on the lake. Awaiting you for sunset viewing is a huge covered deck, while the kids will enjoy retro video games in a bunk room with rustic farm style beds—there are two sets to sleep four young ones. Bold tiles and a light color palette make for a fun kitchen environment, while more neutral accents balance the feel.
Sit under the ambient café lights while enjoying a glass of wine at night. Take in the Texas foliage that surrounds the cottage. Inside is bright, and “modern country”. Throughout the property, you’ll find benches to relax on, a fire pit with a grill top for cooking dinner and a stream. The location is also super close to a popular wildlife center – the kids will love it.
Given that this Airbnb Plus is situated in the abundant nature of Texas Hill Country, it’s completely awesome that there is a garage door style wall that will open up the living space to the outdoors. Being near Austin, there is quite a bit to do beyond the outdoors, so there’s options. Everything inside is trendy, for example, the vibrant green cabinets paired with the brick walls—it’s the cottage with a sense of fashion.
Quaint is the word at the charming cottage, with wagon wheels adorning the front, and the interior following through with a country aesthetic. Bright white walls, a tin roof, a wooden ladder leading to the loft— it’s all very endearing. There’s something so adorable about being surrounded by donkeys and llamas, while also being able to relax in a hot tub. You’re in wine country—so make sure you select some local bottles to enjoy during your stay!
Just enough home and upscale attributes are featured in this precious cottage right beside a gorgeous river in Wimberley. Tubes are provided so guests can take full advantage of the sparkling waters, taking a calming float during hot summer days. Afterward, a hot tub sits in the backyard to further the relaxation experience.
Shiplap walls, gleaming wooden floors, an elegant theme throughout— this new cabin is heaven for a romantic couple’s getaway. Like many of our favorite cottage Airbnb’s, this one is in wine country, so if you like a good glass of red or white, it’s just the cherry on top. Come experience the boutique feels while being on the beautiful green property with farm animals.
History is ever-present in this cottage, which was built in the 1830s – it’s hard to believe! While feeling quite rustic with wood walls and floors, everything is still quite pampering. Soak in the clawfoot tub and enjoy the assortment of bath bombs, or rock on the front porch taking in the lush scenery. At night, the stars are especially vibrant.
Come stay in lovely Waco at this newly constructed Santa Fe style stucco cottage. Wood trim in the interior meshes with the high wood beam ceilings and the little kitchen is the perfect convenient touch. The bathroom features a generously sized bathtub for head to toe soaks, for disconnected evenings. Set in a pecan grove, the “Little Dutch“ cottage is the sweetest place.
The stone cottage is nestled among loads of towering oak trees, and the home itself has so many unique attributes that make your stay extra special. From the earth-inspired interior to an absolutely stunning outdoor space with transparent ceiling coverings, you’ll feel as if you’re on a nature retreat, but with every amenity of a home.
At this warm abode, it’s all about river life. A gleaming stream awaits steps from the cottage and is ready to offer every water activity you could hope for in Texas. Grab the kayaks, get ready to swim, or just simply admire this beautiful portion of the Middle Bosque River. The cottage is purposely weathered and oh so cozy. Snuggle in the loft and enjoy the wildlife surrounded area.
The name couldn’t be more fitting and you’ll get so many cheery feelings when approaching this new and detailed home. From the white cabinets with blue tiling in the kitchen to the bedroom decor with just enough color, your spirits will lift upon your stay here. The cottage sits close to Willow Lake, and there is an outdoor space to enjoy it all from.
