Welcome to Daniel Mueller’s bed and breakfast. We have been in this location, known as Casa Daniel Mueller, since 2005. We are committed to providing you with luxury of the highest standards in a quiet, serene retreat that you won’t want to leave.
The first thing you’ll notice is the sound of a babbling brook as you walk up to this two-story, Italian-style stucco villa. As you turn the handle of a quaint wedding courtyard gate, you enter a world carefully crafted for maximum relaxation and enjoyment. The stress of a busy world begins slipping away as you descend into this garden of flowers, blooming water plants, symmetrical waterfalls, a koi pond, and both water and land turtles that call this Eden their home. Everywhere you look there are walls of star jasmine which, when in bloom, produce an amazing, sweet aroma. Throughout this intimate, cozy space there are places for couples to sit, chat, and unwind.
Although your private courtyard is engrossing, you walk through the 10-foot-high glass front door and enter deeper into the wonders of your sanctuary. As you approach the front door, your view through it takes you through the house, straight to a large tiled deck overlooking the widest part of Lake Travis. Gleaming hardwood floors and 30-foot-high ceilings welcome you. Travertine, granite, and wood have been crafted together in one unified design that invokes awe at the laborers behind it—master craftsmen, passionate about their art. Over the years, dozens of artists have left their mark on these walls. No place remains untouched by their hands. This shows in every detail, everywhere you look.
Hand-drawn murals of Tuscan scenes and Italian architecture abound. You feel like you’ve gone back in time to a day when large pieces of real stone held up real walls. Drawn into the kitchen, you cannot help but admire the intricate stonework, which is also found in the master bath and bedroom. A 30-foot wall of windows overlooking the lake basin beckons to you. As you venture out onto the deck you see a well-landscaped yard, with roses, hibiscus, magnolias, and more … and a hot tub kept at 104° all year round.
Perhaps the best features of this hideaway are the most amazing sunsets and moonrises we’ve ever seen. Consistently, the sunrises are intensely colorful and enchanting, as you are in one of the highest spots in the city of Austin, looking down at the valley below.
Every room that you go to has a unique flair, something interesting, something special. Each space provides a different experience, and a tour of our homepage will have you wanting to try out each of these bedrooms. Quietly, behind the scenes, sophisticated technology provides you innovative systems and not-so-innovative, but much-appreciated, high-speed Wi-Fi.
Weekly maid service, a gardener, and a groundskeeper make this a well-served environment where all you need to do is lie back, relax, and enjoy!
