About Michelle Alexander

I'm a Texas girl! And although my hubby, Matt (of more than a couple of decades) is from California, it didn't take him long to find his heart here. And we fell in love with this beautiful spot in the country! We've always enjoyed all kinds of "hosting", and we love sharing this with others. This place is a labor of love, and our guests can feel that.

Michelle Alexander purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Michelle Alexander chose Dripping Springs

We chose this property for so many reasons. And when we saw this spot, with the wet-weather tanks, beautiful oaks, and hill-country views, we couldn't wait to get here. There's nothing I enjoy more than morning coffee on the porch with an amazing sunrise or an afternoon on the swing under a big oak. And Dripping Springs is so charming, along with nearby artsy Wimberley just down the way. Such a neat, relaxed getaway from busy, groovy Austin!

What makes this cottage unique

You can enjoy the peace of the countryside, with the ability to be "in-town" in 10 minutes or in the big city of bustling Austin in just over a half-hour. Wimberley is just minutes away, and Fredericksburg just an hour! As for the accommodations, it's not your ordinary place: serene setting, lovely linens, hand-picked décor, attention to the details that will make you just plain happy. You'll see! We'll also have other cottages on-site: Guest Quarters (785910), Lucky Star (892497), Creek Road Cottage (817593), and The Country House (950087). All are private, but great for visiting!

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Michelle was very quick to reply to my questions when I was looking for a place last minute! We were looking for somewhere near Camp Lucy for a wedding and this couldn't have been better, only 3 miles down the road! The Live Oak cabin was absolutely adorable and there were many extra touches to make our stay comfortable. Very peaceful setting. Can't wait to stay at The Alexander again!

Such a great getaway from city life!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed at this wonderful cabin in Dripping Springs and we were in love. It's located in an open area just outside of the town. You get complete quiet, an amazing view of the stars, and a short drive into town, to wineries, and olive oil tastings. The best of what Central Texas has to offer. We will definitely be back!

So peaceful and quaint!

  • 5 of 5

This is a little gem if you are wanting somewhere quiet, cozy, and adorable to stay near Camp Lucy. I attended a wedding there for New Year's Eve, and it was so nice to drive less than five minutes down the windy road and be able to nestle here. The cottage is so precious with small details that make it feel like home. The bed and bedding were so comfortable, and that comes from two people who are very picky about sleep! Matt and Michelle responded to any needs immediately. It was perfect!

Lovely place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I randomly found this site when looking for places to stay when in town for a local dressage clinic and to celebrate a friends 60th birthday. It could not have been more perfect, there are several different accommodation options, all very well appointed with much attention to detail making our stay very comfortable. Very peaceful, the outside areas surrounded by all of natures beauty. The owners are available for any need you may have but respect your privacy which is nice. Definitely a place I will have a return visit!!

Lovely and comfortable cottage. Kind and helpful hosts and gorgeous scenery!

  • 5 of 5

The Alexander was easy to find back a lovely twisty country road. We were greeted by Matt, Michelle's husband, who was busy working in the 98+heat on a new shed for the property. We enjoyed a super friendly and welcoming chat and instructions for the cottage. We loved having a key code entry - no key or fob to misplace. Each cottage is in keeping with the others on the property and we found ours to be exactly as seen in the photos. Clean and pristine. I was happy to gobble down some of the delicious scones and a clementine orange as I was starving when we arrived. Matt also directed us to a couple of nearby Mexican restaurants. Thumbs up on the fresh margarita (sans sugar), guac & enchiladas.

Stay here - it's charming and quaint at The Alexander on Creek Road. We look forward to seeing the property evolve over the years.

We are minutes away from multiple wedding venues including Camp Lucy, Vista West, Ma Maison, and more. Easy access from 290 means we're in the country, but you can get "downtown" quickly, with dining, entertainment, shopping, and more. The sweet town of Wimberley is also close by, with multiple restaurants and shops. The charming town of Fredericksburg is also a big attraction, along with hiking at Enchanted Rock. Want big action? Austin is about a half-hour drive with all the nightlife!
