Mason bungalow description

This unique guesthouse lodging is comprised of the historic main house along with three individual cottages in an oasis-like compound situated atop Post Hill, overlooking the town of Mason.

The main house is 1 bed with 2 baths, full kitchen, dining, living room, central heat/air. Wraparound porch boasts splendid vistas of the town of Mason and surrounding hillsides. (Please note that the main house is only available seasonally..inquire for details!)

In addition to the main house, the compound is comprised of 3 individual casitas surrounding the over-sized saltwater swimming pool. Perimeter walls of rock & stucco provide privacy and enclosure while allowing for great hilltop breezes and views of the nighttime sky! Additional features of a waterfall and 'Moon Gate' found along rock walkways create interest and ambiance in keeping with the feel of Old Mexico in the unique architecture and decor.

Casita 1 is 2 bed/1 bath, motel-style, tiled floor with central heat/air. Bed sizes include queen and full.

Casita 2 is 2 bed/1 bath, tiled floor, with sitting room & mini-kitchen with window units. Bed sizes include full and pair of twins. Futon couch is available for additional sleeping.

Casita 3 is studio setting, 1 king bed and 1 bath with mini-kitchen, polished concrete floor with central heat/air. Also has the television (only one) with satellite and DVD player.

Individually, the lodgings are ideal for small groups of 1-4 persons. Combined, they are great for family gatherings, for workshops or for friends reunions! The common areas are ideal to gather for meals and fellowship, with casitas offering individual sanctuary.

As a guesthouse, breakfast is not included but the means to prepare the provided coffees and teas are available in each unit.

Come swim with us and experience the hilltop oasis in Mason, Texas!
