Inspired by all the wonderful alternative vacation posts we've seen at Apartment Therapy for August's escapes month, we decided to show you some of our great Austin getaway spots. Be close enough to explore your local landmarks and save money on gas: stay at a charming Austin Bed and Breakfast! Austin has lots of great options for small weekend retreats in the city, all with different décor styles and vibes. Check out some of our favorites after the jump...

Carrington's Bluff 1900 David St
Austin, TX 78705
512-479-0638

Featuring eight guest rooms spread over a main cottage and a writer's cottage, Carrington's Bluff satisfies your need for a traditional Bed and Breakfast stay. Gardens, porches, floral bedspreads---you name it, Carrington's Bluff has it.

Austin Folk House B&B 506 W. 22nd St.
Austin, TX 78705
866-472-6700

With a simple interior and charming details, the Austin Folk house is situated close to the University of Texas, making it a perfect spot for those looking for a nice place to stay close enough to explore the University area.

Robin's Nest B&B 1007 Stewart Cove
Austin, TX 78734
512-266-3413

Set a bit farther away than the other Bed and Breakfasts, Robin's Nest offers you both seclusion and lakeside views. Offering more of a rustic, cabin-like feel, Robin's Nest is still a close enough drive into Austin when you want to check out our local landmarks.

Not Bed and Breakfasts, but just as great:

Hotel San Jose 1316 South Congress Avenue
Austin, Texas 78704
512-444-7322

Probably one of the coolest, hippest places you'll ever see. The décor is essentially Austin: a good combination of modern and rustic, with a lot of regional plants thrown into the mix. Offering a variety of room sizes and rates, the Hotel San Jose is located on South Congress and within walking distance of many great sites.

Austin Motel 1220 S. Congress Avenue
Austin, Texas 78704
512-441-1157

You may have seen its well known sign in my post: creative signs. The interior of this 70-year-old motel isn't lacking in style. Also located on South Congress Avenue, it offers simple, yet stylish interiors steeped in South Austin history.
