Strickland Arms, former home of Judge John McCamy Patterson, was built in 1904 and is nestled in the quiet central Austin neighborhood of Patterson Heights, so named after Judge Patterson's family. Featuring twelve-foot ceilings, formal dining and living areas, wraparound ante-bellum style porch, a private Italian garden styled back yard with pool and spa, the native limestone, turn-of-the-century, 5000 square foot home will take you back to a time when things were much simpler. You will forget the hustle and bustle when you step through our antique wrought iron gate and walk through the beautiful garden shaded by a massive red oak and pecan trees, up the limestone front steps, and past the twin giant great dane statues that guard the front door of Strickland Arms. Strickland Arms is within walking distance of Shipe Park, Elisabet Ney Museum, Austin landmark restaurants, and coffee shops.

Upstairs there is also a cozy, old-fashioned "sleeping porch" for those balmy evenings.

HistoricStay.com Has Launched!
HistoricStay.com is a human-curated, invitation only
presentation of select, distinctly historic lodging accommodations,
including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges worldwide.
Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably
significant to world history with respect to their architecture,
engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location,
design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.
Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer
travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.
They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to
connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging,
excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.
Sadly, countless historically significant structures
have been (and continue to be) lost forever.
Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the
vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising
proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort
and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities
reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.
