Quiet rural setting with gated circle drive on very wooded private grounds. Completely fenced in, 2-acre park like setting with access to gardens. Original whimsical mural paint job on entire exterior, which you are encouraged to add to! Three friendly dogs, three aloof cats and 4 hens in a pen all live on the property. We have enough pets, so PLEASE do not bring yours. RV is positioned near to the residence & art studio but is rather privately situated.
Excellent spot for a romantic weekend get way for just the two of you, quite place to read, write, paint or finish that project. The drive out to the property is very picturesque with a safe walking area close by. There are cows and a couple of donkeys across the road! Lots more interesting than a local generic hotel room for reunions, wedding and other gatherings in Bastrop and Elgin.
F1 fans that DO NOT want the Austin traffic can take a relaxing drive and enjoy the country instead!

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We loved our stay at this artsy, funky property! There is so much attention to detail throughout the trailer and the land. The trailer was comfortable for our stay. AC kept the trailer cool in a Texas summer and there was a bathroom, kitchen, tv, wifi, and more available for use. Spend some time walking around the trailer to view all of the incredible art! My favorite painting was of Frida. There are loose dogs and cats on the property, but they were all very friendly and I loved visiting with them. This is a place I would definitely stay again!
This was such an awesome escape from the city. Kristi is a wonderful host. She greeted us onsite, gave us the tour and run down and then let us be. Chris and I stayed here for only one night but are already eager to return! It was super cozy, homey, and corky! Kristi, your attention to detail is awesome!
We highly recommend this place to anyone who doesn't want to stay in a hotel, primitive camp, or just wants a little romantic getaway in the woods.
We'll be back :)
P.S. We didn't realize it until we arrived but we stayed at Casa Luna Llena on the Full Moon in Scorpio. Rad.
The ArtV is so cozy and beautifully kept! Kristi has done an amazing job designing the unique and whimsical site. Only 40 minutes from our home in Austin, and nearby Bastrop had several restaurants worth checking out. Highly recommend checking out!!
Just returned from a wonderful weekend at the ArtV. With a location less than an hour outside of Austin, it still felt remote and like staying a beautiful outpost in the country. The RV comes with its quirks- though all of them only enhance the unique experience of staying here. Kristi is a phenomenal host and couldn’t have been better about communicating information to us. So grateful for the wonderful weekend getaway!
Great solo trip escape
I could not have been happier with this experience. Kristi has obviously put so much love and care into creating this amazing, unique space and I felt very lucky to have been able to spend some time in it. Kristi was super polite, friendly and respectful of privacy. The space matched perfectly with the description and pictures. It's really a great quirky, fun alternative to a hotel or a perfect place to get away for a day or two to write and read. Overall, it was great and I highly recommend.
