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 2018
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.

Love this place!
Peaceful! Family had a blast.
Clean and up to date, quiet and out of the way place to stay.
Texas Hill Country Tiny House.
Simply excellent! All that we needed, or wanted, was there in a clean, neat orderly fashion. But, please remember that this is Texas Hill Country and with it's alkaline soil the water has a strong mineral taste. While her water is filtered, it may not suit your taste, so you might want to consider bringing along some extra bottled water to drink. We used her well water to drink, cook and bathe, but then we are "country folks" and accustomed to the light mineral water taste.

Blue Casita just right
We stayed at Blue Casita for a family wedding. As New Englanders, we enjoyed the country roads and ranch gate entries to get there. All went smoothly and easily to let ourselves in, even in the dark. Everything about the property is new and clean. We enjoyed coffee on the porch in the morning and sunsets in the evening. The roaming sheep are cool, too. The owner kindly dropped off an iron and board for us when we needed it for the wedding. Could have used a few more coffee creamers. Wish we had more time at Pedernales Falls nearby.
Thanks to Brian, I am in the process of procuring irons and ironing boards for both my Casitas. Thanks for your feedback.
Perfect for our family near Camp Lucy
We are a couple and our older parents, and we rented both houses (the green and the blue) to be together but separate for a wedding weekend in the Hill Country at nearby Camp Lucy. The houses were adorable, clean, peaceful, and convenient. There was even coffee and creamer provided. The property is down some winding country roads, so the drive to the venue or to town was about 15 minutes. Perfect for our weekend.
Nearby there are many distilleries to visit, and Dripping Springs is close, as well.
Beautiful view from the deck, nice for morning coffee.
Would definitely stay again!
Luxury in Texas Hill Country
Very impressed with this property. The amenities are 5 star quality. Perfect location for peace and quiet with a short drive to shopping and restaurants. Pedernales State Park is just up the road a few miles as well. Nancy is a fantastic host and quick to reply to questions/concerns.
