About Patti Boyd
David Boyd, retired from UT Austin. Patti Boyd, semi-retired from self-employment. We both have lived in Austin area for about 50 years, and have lived at this property since 1995.
Patti Boyd purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Patti Boyd chose Hammett's Crossing
It is incredibly beautiful, truly, and a very natural area. Austin seems to grow daily, but our place here, only 30 miles from downtown, feels a world away. It is very a peaceful, relaxing place to be, a real getaway from the hustle and bustle.
What makes this Cabin unique
The view from the cabin is phenomenal. Sitting on the porch and relaxing in the swing or glider and enjoying the view of Cypress Creek canyon 120 feet below is a mind-altering experience. It really takes you out of yourself for a bit. If you're a bit adventurous, you can climb down the custom-built iron staircase and trail to an incredibly beautiful deck built on a boulder overlooking Cypress Creek. It feels very much like a giant treehouse, with the sound of the falling water running down below.

Charming Country Cottage
Adorable little cottage in the woods with a fantastic view of the river valley. Patti and David were extremely friendly hosts and we enjoyed visiting their tortoise and goats with my young son. The cottage itself is well cared for and clean. Its very secluded and I enjoyed watching the hummingbirds on the porch. Thanks for hosting us Patti and David!
Perfect family get away!
It was everything described on VRBO! My family was extremely comfortable with the accommodations. Location was perfect to all our scheduled activities! I will definitely share with family and friends and look forward to visiting again and making memories!
We loved it. Beautiful little cabin with a great view.
Very relaxing and picturesque!
Beautiful property with lots of great views. Wrap around porch and swing, great place for morning coffee watching the hummingbirds come to eat and play!
Dave and Patti were perfect hosts and maintain this lovely gem of a vacation getaway like a 5 star hotel. Could not have asked for anything better!
Feels like home!
First of all, our hosts were very nice and hospitable. They give you recommendations about the surrounding area (where to go, where to eat, etc.). They make you feel at home.
The cottage is very nice and private. There's plenty of seats (and a swing) on the porch where you can relax and watch the hummingbirds feed. That was really fun to watch since it is something we don't see everyday in Houston.
Also, the view is really something to see.
If you don't want to stay out in the Texas summer heat, you can stay inside the AC cooled cottage and still be able to see the views outside through the big windows on the living and dining area of the cottage.
Although it was really hot (Texas summer), we ventured down to the creek where there is a deck so you can just sit and relax, and listen to nature sounds. Just be prepared for the uphill (and stairs) climb on the way back.
It is a good place to have a staycation, even our 2 teens are impressed and thinks their loft bedroom is "cool".
Overall, we had a relaxing stay and we want to come back again during the cooler seasons.
Loved the cabin very comfortable. Hosts were very helpful and available. Fun things to do in the area: Hamilton Pool, Krause Springs, and Exotic Zoo. Had a great time.
Hamilton Pool Park is 2 miles and Reimers Ranch Park is 3 miles. We are about 30 minutes from the world famous Salt Lick Barbeque in Driftwood. Fredericksburg is about 1 hour away with many wineries along the way, the closest of which is one-half mile away from our gate.
