                                                                17 Reviews

                                                                Beautiful hill country property

                                                                A very spacious home, uniquely decorated, with a beautiful picture window wrapped room on the main floor - a perfect gathering place for our group of 9, to visit and enjoy the beautiful scenery outside. Everything was very clean upon our arrival, and the owner was easy to contact with questions or concerns. The location was far enough away from downtown San Antonio to feel like a hill country escape, yet close enough to drive downtown and enjoy the historical features of San Antonio. The kitchen was well equipped and functioned perfectly for our group. Although the weather was too chilly to use the pool, the pool setting was lovely, and would have been utilized if the weather had been sunny and warm. Overall a great place to spend a relaxing getaway weekend!

                                                                The property is beautiful and well-supplied with everything we needed for our stay

                                                                We will definitely be back!

                                                                The home was as advertised in the pictures on the website. Great location in the Hill Country

                                                                Rich C.,

                                                                We weren’t able to utilize the whole property since we were there in early February. The wildlife were abundant which was nice but you need to be aware on the drive in and out. We had a few near misses with deer crossing the road. I would think this property is very nice in the summer months.

                                                                Great getaway
