The uncommon common room of Kimber Modern B&B. Architects: Burton Baldridge Architects, Austin, Texas
A tree named Hillary
This tree is named Hillary, as she is the namesake of another Hillary. Both were showing signs of losing during construction and recent primaries. The B&B co-owners passionately supported both and point out that both Hillary and Hillary are thriving and looking forward to the future.
If you love modern design, solitude, and pampering, Kimber Modern in Austin is the B&B for you. Tall Husband and I loved padding barefoot across the shaded courtyard to the common room to find a buffet from which guests could put together their own breakfasts. You could stay here for a week and not see staff, which you'll love if your are weary of all the fawning that occurs at most high-end establishments. You don't even have to check in or out or carry a key card. You make your reservation on line and choose your own entry code which will let you into the main entrance and your room.
Oh...if you do find yourself at Kimber Modern, give Hillary a hug for me.
