About Nancy Woodward
After a career in the software industry and raising 2 children, I left Austin to move full time to Caballo Creek Ranch, about a mile up the road from my new guest houses. In looking around for what to do next, I chose to combine my interests in travel, the Texas Hill Country, and home decor into a vacation rental business. I began in 2017 by redecorating an existing house with some of my favorite artwork and furniture from my previous home in Austin. I found myself taking great pleasure in seeing guests enjoy my property and decided to build the Green and Blue Casitas in 2018 as vacation rentals.
Nancy Woodward purchased this House in 2000
Why Nancy Woodward chose Johnson City
Having lived in Austin since 1978, I have long considered the Austin area to be home. In the 1990’s I was able to achieve my lifetime dream of owning horses and went looking for ranch property accessible to Austin. Now that I live here full time, I find this location perfect. It is just far enough from Austin to maintain its rural feel but close enough to take advantage of all Austin has to offer.
What makes this House unique
This lodging is a reflection of my personal taste and more importantly, of all the conveniences I look for when traveling. I have tried to attend to the details that I look for in a hotel — counter and storage space in the bathrooms, a complete coffee offering, spa-quality bathroom amenities, clean and comfortable bedding and of course, wifi access. But what distinguishes the Casita from a hotel is that all this comfort is nestled in a secluded and rural setting. For me, it’s the best of both worlds.

Perfect Pedernales Home Base
My wife and I decided this Thanksgiving to run from our extended family and make for the Texas Hill country. We Had never been to Pedernales Falls State Park so we wanted a place with easy access to the park. We hiked the state park every day we were here and our daughter and dog had a blast.
If your in a similar situation, look no further, especially if you have a small dog.
The house had everything we needed for family of 4 (3 two legged and 1 four legged)
Things we liked:
Close to state park
Close to Dripping Springs and Johnson City
2 acres of fenced in property to the dog could roam free
Sheep and donkeys next door
Large covered porch
Pellet Grill (never used before but super easy)
Direct TV (for football and rainly days)
Saw deer and rabbits
They have a Kureg coffee maker. I brought ground coffee I could not use but luckily they’re were lots of pods already here. But if that was left over from previous guest you may want to come prepared.
Hot water in master bath does get hot. Just have to a wait a bit.
Internet is slow. It is the rural hill country after all. But works enough for basic internet use. Was able to watch a movie on Netflix.
I am so glad you discovered Pedernales Falls State Park. It is always a favorite with my guests.
I do always provide plenty of pods for the Keurig so there is no need to bring coffee unless you just prefer to bring your own. As for the internet, I am continually looking for ways to improve it but as you noted, it does always provide enough throughout for streaming.
Fabulous Property and Experience
Our family really enjoyed experiencing hill country at this wonderful location. The property was well appointed and clean. Serene environment with great views. Owner was very prompt and courteous in communication. We can't wait to come back.
I enjoyed hosting you and hope you will return soon.
Beautiful, comfortable, all needs met.
The property was perfect! Cannot wait to go back so we can spend a little more time there!
Short getaway for a wedding
The property is a beautiful place in the hill country. You are at the top of the hill and can sit outside early in the morning and drink coffee and watch the sun rise (like us). Everything you need is there and we were very comfortable with 6 people staying in the house. I would highly recommend staying here!!
