We built this home as a mother-in -law home and guest house, but have recently decided to share it with more travelers than just relatives.

                                              Loved it! Perfect for us.

                                              George A.

                                              House arranged great. It had all the right amenities. Loved the geese, peacocks, and others. Caught fish in pond and creek. 6 year old grandson had fun riding his bike and fishing and swinging.

                                              Great getaway in the country - enjoyed the quiet and peaceful surroundings.

                                              Catherine G.

                                              Great location to do day trips and eat some great bbq! Overall though, it was great to just hang out fishing or down by the creek, and out on the patio with the fire pit in the evening. Guesthouse had everything we needed - we loved it!

                                              Cozy Country Cottage !

                                              Jackie J.

                                              Dana and Terri are great hosts! This guest house has everything you made need for a great vacation ! Close to many of the great places to visit in the hill country of Texas!

                                              Good, but could be better in the kitchen

                                              Don S.

                                              The house was great as we expected from previous stays. The kitchen equipment is a little strange--plenty of some things, but lacking some basics like sauce pan lids.

                                              Beautiful, well-equipped home with fenced yard for dogs. Great getaway with a creek and duck pond.

                                              Debbie S.

                                              We had a fantastic time at this quaint property. Our dog had a nice backyard to roam in and watch the ducks. It's the perfect place to stay to check out the famous Lockhart BBQ joints.

                                              Just perfect!

                                              Pete V.Auckland

                                              We spent 6 weeks and came to really appreciate the quite location but still close to everything, Lockhart, the BBQ capital, just minutes away. Easy access to Austin and San Antonio. Very clean and comfortable house that has everything you need. Terri and Dana are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble, have an issue, need something - sorted. If we are in the area we will be back.
