This historical landmark of Texas has been around about as long as Austin and has been referred to as “The best kept secret in Austin.” The Miller-Crockett House is definitely one of the “must sees” that Central Texas has to offer whether on vacation, business or weddings.
The Miller-Crockett House offers the very best of Austin to any traveler. Built in 1888, the Miller Crockett House is 2 blocks from the heart of Downtown Austin and the Hike & Bike Trails along the Colorado River. Situated on an acre and a half of beautifully landscaped grounds, you can see the Texas Monthly award winning view of the Austin Skyline or chill in a hammock underneath our 300-year-old Live Oak trees.
Boasts 3 grand rooms in the Main House and 3 darling cozy cottages-from period antiques to modern eclectic. Two lovely, well-appointed rooms as well as a huge grand suite are available in the main house. The 3 cottages are complete with fully equipped kitchens, sitting rooms and private terraces…..this is the place to stay if you really want to get the best “laid-back but elegant” Austin vibe!!
The Miller-Crockett was used as a film location for a few scenes in Richard Linklater’s film, The Newton Boys, starring Matthew McConaughey and Ethan Hawke The estate has also hosted bands such as Blues Traveler, Russell Crowe and his band, The Bare Naked Ladies while they recorded their last hit record in a nearby recording studio, and Jennifer Warnes, just to name a few. From the scores of other actors who have made the Miller-Crockett their home while on location, some have often referred to this quiet refuge as, “The bed and breakfast for the stars under the stars.”
