About Robin

We designed and built this house for family closeness and entertaining friends. We've raised our boys in this home and on this property. They graduated Dripping Springs High School and now attend UT Austin and UT San Antonio. Now that they are not home full time, we wanted to share the place with others and earn some extra income.

Why Robin chose Dripping Springs

My husband bought this amazing property right out of college and we decided to build when we started our family. Owned by an artist and engineer, the place is unique and beautifully decorated for a homey and casual feel. The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining and family gatherings. It's private, peaceful and comfortable.

What makes this House unique

Our home has so many unique qualities not found in most B&B's, from the panoramic views, privacy, custom artwork and stained glass windows, decorating and landscaping. We live in the hub of hill country outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, swimming, Hamilton Pool Preserve, Westcave Preserve, Reimers Ranch Park, wineries and wedding venues.

                                                        What a beautiful view!

                                                        Christie M.

                                                        If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and need a place that accommodates a large group, this is the place to stay. I can’t say enough good things about my family’s stay at Robin and Tom’s home. Robin greeted us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the property and how everything worked. She even brought out all the pool toys when I told her my three-year old grandsons were coming. She welcomed us to use any DVD or CD in her collection. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking which my sisters and I enjoy doing. It was so peaceful and relaxing. There was plenty of seating for everyone inside and out. The only negative for us was that the fifth bedroom was accessible via a spiral staircase. We’re not as young and agile as we used to be. I would definitely recommend this place.

                                                        Just what we were hoping for.

                                                        The beautiful get away from the city. Across a few Rivers, beyond the wineries and with easy directions, you are finally there. The owners clearly put their heart and soul in this house. Really have everything you need. The pool and hot tub are amazing with an expansive view.

                                                        The property was beautiful. The entire house was amazing along with the property.

                                                        We were in town for my sons wedding. We stayed Thurs thru Sunday. It was a 30 min drive from the property to Memory Lane, but it was a beautiful drive and not a problem for us at all. The house was beautiful and spacious, with the hot tub, fire pit and bar-b-que pit for our use. We used all but the pool and swimming hole while there. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone. We will be going back this summer to enjoy all of the amenities and the wineries.

                                                        Yulonde T.

                                                        We had a wonderful weekend celebrating my husband's 65th birthday with family. The home and property are beautiful with lots to do in the area. We visited two wineries and a distillery all within 20 minutes of the property. There are several other attractions very close, but we ran out of time.

                                                        The owner met us upon arrival and was very gracious showing us around. I highly recommend this vacation rental and would love to go back in the near future.

                                                        This Property was Amazing. We took a girls Trip/ Birthday Trip for the weekend and upon Arrival the property was Breath Taking. Robin and her Husband gave us a heart felt welcoming and showed us around the property. The house was Well stocked with everything we needed for an amazing weekend. The Beds were all very comfortable!! The WiFi did not work, but that was okay! The pool and Jacuzzi was great. There were a lot of Ants on the perimeter of the Jacuzzi and of the few ladies were bitten. Bring some OFF, if you plan to sit outside there were mosquito's. But Overall we had a great stay. We plan to return soon. Wish we could have stayed longer!!!
