Amazing location for going out & very spacious & comfortable for staying in.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location within walking distance to Austin's charming restaurants and shops. Thirteen of us ranging in age from 11 to 73 had private sleeping quarters in house & studio apartment AND 5 Airstream trailers with AC & heat & connected to water, sewer & electricity - a total of 8 bathrooms!

Well stocked kitchen & dining room and TV's in house & studio & an outside venue as well. Enough room for 13 of us to sit cozily at one table which was great for game playing as well as for meals. Also outside ping pong venue.

Very accommodating Manager Miles readily available for questions & any problems. Plenty of off street parking - we had 3 cars.

All the ingredients for a wonderful holiday gathering for our family.

Even better in person

  • 5 of 5

Instead of staying in separate hotels, myself and nine colleagues rented the Camp Congress location. It was fantastic! The space was perfect for us all to gather and have time together. Plus, the location cannot be beat as there are many great bars, restaurants, shops within walking distance. The owner, Miles, is also a great guy and couldn't be more helpful to us both before and during the stay. This was probably my 30th trip to Austin and easily one of the most fun.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had the most amazing experience here. Pictures really do not do this property justice. Once you are there you feel like you are on a resort somewhere, the only thing missing is the ocean. Steps away is South Congress and tons of amazing restaurants and funky little shops. Miles was very accommodating and made sure everything was perfect.

We loved it so much we already booked another stay in October.

GREAT corporate retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 people staying and dozens coming and going for meetings all day. This place was perfect. Miles was a great host able to answer questions and fix problems without being too intrusive. The studio was perfect for all-day meetings and the outside spaces great for nighttime fun. Even in the heat of summer the A/C worked well in all the Airstreams and both houses. We'll be back!

An ideal venue for a large bachelor party

  • 5 of 5

We had 21 guys to Austin for a bachelor party. This was the ideal place to stay. Instead of having separate rooms in a hotel, this allowed us to have a place to chill communally. I don't think the descriptions and photos do this place justice. There's a main building with 4 bedrooms and two baths, a kitchen, dining room, and living room. There's also a second studio apartment building. There's a ping-pong and darts area, a fire pit, a BBQ area with seating, an outdoor home theater with a kegerator and outdoor fridge. Cornhole in the driveway, hammocks all around..not to mention the Airstreams, which are of various vintages but all in pristine condition. I can't say enough about how great this place was for our party. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend.

Location

Car: not necessary

Within walking distance to many SOCO bars and restaurants. Downtown is just minutes away by foot. Watch the bats (largest free tailed bat colony in North America) from Congress bridge. Or, run bike or stroll along the water front on Town lake. Whatever the activity the property is in the heart of Austin's most popular tourist area.
