Even in a fantastic town like Austin many travelers sometimes have difficulty finding a place where they can feel safe and openly be themselves.    

Trans people, non-binary gender, people of color, immigrant communities, religious minority communities, gay and lesbian and bi people.  The list is long.

We are a gay couple, together 35 years.  Both Texas natives.

We offer a refuge for theLGBTQ+ community.   A gay-affirming space is the primary goal, but we also hope to extend the same welcome to all who sometimes face  lodging discrimination.

No hiding.  No shame.  No hassle.  Only respect.  And cute lil guest soaps.

Nightly, weekly, monthly, or long term.

Why Rainbow Bat?  The bat has long been associated with Austin.  Millions of them come here every season to live under the South Congress Bridge, then migrate home again.   And the rainbow for, well, it's a rainbow.
