Description

Old Hollywood Meets Old West Austin in Governor’s Mansion!

The Mansion is where Old West Austin meets her cousin "Old Hollywood" for a weekend of poolside conversation and cocktails. This beautiful home features 7 Bedrooms & 5 Bathrooms and can sleep 18 guests. Take calls from your balcony in flip flops and a robe with some of the best views of downtown. This is where the makers create, connect, and come home to. Ideas, inspiration, new family & friends are found here. Come here when you’re looking for a fresh start, need a place of solace to write a song, or to enjoy a congregation of friends and family for a special day together. This home is an embodiment of the Austin culture and panache, re-born by true Austinites, and an inspired by the life and goodwill of “Ma” Ferguson. It is a refuge from the normality of our everyday lives, a place to work and relax with friends. Upon arrival at the Mansion, your group can enjoy the tastefully selected decor, all hand-picked by Austin’s renowned interior designer Joel Mozersky. Prepare yourself and your group for the full monty of VIP amenities; our private unheated swimming pool, just off of the front steps of the home, is ready to host you and your family and friends for a poolside barbecue in the sunshine.

Miriam “Ma” Ferguson, the first female Governess of the State of Texas, built what would be her longest-tenured and final home here atop the hill on the corner of Windsor and Enfield Road in 1927. Following her second term as Governor, Miriam moved from the Governors Mansion straight into this home, where she lived until her death in 1961. The spirit of “Ma” still fills her home with positive energy, and during the restoration her oversight and approval for the restoration were felt by all of our family of contractors. We pay homage to her positive energy and influence by returning her home to her, to allow her even in death to play host to visiting families, friends, influencers and newcomers. The spirit of “Ma” will assure your stay to be fully refreshing, rejuvenating, and memorable.
