Old Hollywood meets Old West Austin at the timeless Governor’s Mansion – a mile from Downtown Austin. The stately residence was built by Texas’ first woman Governess, Miriam “Ma” Ferguson in 1927. Legend has it, her hostful spirit can still be felt welcoming excited visitors into her house on the hill top. Accommodations include 7 bedrooms + 5 bathrooms to sleep a total of 18 guests. Amenities include a fully stocked kitchen with high-end appliances, 4 separate living quarters with their own spacious drawing rooms, a private unheated sunkissed swimming pool, multiple shaded poolside seating areas, a propane gas grill and a secluded second floor balcony among the treetops. The estate has been fully restored with tasteful design elements paired with rich textiles and furnishings – ideal for entertaining family, friends or colleagues. We invite you to share in good company, and stay awhile with Renters Club.
