  • Amazing Mother/Daughter Escape!

    "My mother and I stayed at this wonderful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Houston for a long weekend. We enjoyed the ducks, geese, peacocks, horses and a new family of red birds just from the nest. The temps ranged from mid 70's to low 40's over our trip but we always made it down to the spring fed creek. We had family come meet us for BBQ in Lockhart one night and went to visit another family group near Seguin another night. One day we spent shopping at the San Marcos Outlets. It was close to everything we did.The house was perfect - beds were comfy, cable worked for our "Oscar Night' together, rockers on the porch - perfect size for our little getaway. The owners were friendly and accommodating and we felt at home. We hope to be back and maybe stay on the property the whole time and RELAX!"

  • Fun Place for Family Vacation

    "This property was wonderful for our family vacation with four grown kids and four grandchildren. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub! The outdoor kitchen was perfect for our large family meals! We loved the music outside and all the TV's also. The main house was wonderful with high end finishes and furnishings. The bunkhouse was perfect for kids and grand kids ! The views were beautiful and so relaxing! We loved all the space and all the extra amenities!!"

  • Loved charming, cozy, and comfortable cottage.

    "Ok, here's the thing, this adorable cottage is tucked away right in the middle of San Marcos and no one even knows it's there. It was perfect in every respect. We loved the relative seclusion and the peace and quiet. You can count us among those who think trains are charming (unless they're blocking the road when you are trying to get somewhere), so the sound of train whistles was distracting for like ten minutes. We relaxed and spent time with our daughter who lives in San Marcos. It was so nice to have place where she could come and relax and talk and laugh. We spent time on the front porch drinking wine and met two charming dog friends, Texie and Gunner. You'll notice there's a bag of dog biscuits behind the door for when they show up. We also met a little kitty on the back deck who was sweet and possibly blind. All of the pets belong to others in the area but after recently losing our beloved lab, Emma, they were a comfort to us. There are also an abundance of deer all over the property. The antiques in the cottage are wonderful. Everywhere you look there is something to look at. The family room is comfy with two huge leather chairs and matching ottomans. We also very much enjoyed the screen porch where we ate most of our meals and played cards on one occasion. Pam was very gracious and although we didn't have the chance to meet the owners, Mike and Kirsten, meeting Pam told us a lot about them. Certainly they must be charming and down to earth types because that's the theme of this wonderful cottage and that's how Pam is as well. Do yourself a favor and pass on the hotel experience and book this cottage if it is available. We will certainly be back!"

  • Weekend getaway!

    "This is the perfect property to enjoy a few days of peace and quiet and relax! The room is perfect for one or two people! We enjoyed relaxing and watching people kayak past while at the umbrella patio, took the paddle boat out one afternoon and the following morning, and enjoyed chatting by the firepit one evening. It is a short walk to Herbert's Taco Hut which was a fun local restaurant. Sylvia was sweet and accommodating. She made sure we had what we needed and recommended some fun things to do while we stayed on her property. It was a short ride from Gruene and not far from Austin. So we really enjoyed many things in the 3 days / 2 nights we stayed. Would highly recommend if you need a few days to get away!"
