Hotel Saint Cecilia was originally built in 1888 as the Miller-Crockett house, and is among the five remaining Victorian homes of twelve originally built along this stretch of the Colorado River. The home was occupied by a descendant of Davy Crockett, Leslie Crockett, and his wife Mary Ann Miller for over 60 years before it was converted into a Bed & Breakfast in the mid-nineties. Bunkhouse renovated and reopened the property as Hotel Saint Cecilia in 2008.
Hotel Saint Cecilia was conceived and created by Texas hotelier Liz Lambert and her team at Bunkhouse. The company’s other properties include the iconic Hotel San Jose, a 40 room modern minimalist courtyard hotel in Austin; El Cosmico, a 21 acre tepee, yurt and vintage trailer hotel and campground in far west Marfa, Texas; and Hotel Havana, a historic 27 room hotel on the San Antonio River Walk. Bunkhouse also owns and operates Jo’s Coffee in Austin.
The Hotel Saint Cecilia sits in the historic Travis Heights neighborhood one block from the South Congress district, home to iconic live music venue the Continental Club and other hubs of Austin culinary, entertainment and shopping culture.
