About IdaNell Schuessler

After thirty years of teaching, I retired to work in our Feed/Hardware store which my father stared in 1932. Last year we sold the store so my husband could retire to ranching. This house was our 'Town' house, but when we retired we no longer needed it. Since it was my grandparents' house, I didn't want to sell or rent it, and since we love staying in B&Bs, I decided to open one.

Why IdaNell Schuessler chose Hill Country

This 1920's Craftsman-Style Bungalow is quaint, yet homey. There is plenty of outside space to sit and relax. It is just a short walk to the downtown Courthouse Square with its shops and restaurants, as well as, a short walk to the beautiful Llano River.

What makes this bungalow unique

A queen-size Murphy bed turns the family room into a second bedroom. With it up, the room is a relaxing family space. The living room is also a perfect spot for a quiet conversation or relaxation. The fenced yard is a secure spot for pets with a doggie door for easy access.

Wonderful B&B Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with HomeAway and we have been very impressed with all aspects of the operations.

We found a perfect getaway in the Westerman House and IdaNell was a great host. From the welcoming cupcakes to the quiche and bacon for breakfast, we were well taken care of. Overall, it was a very restful experience. We had to cut short our stay due to medical issues, but we will definitely return. In addition to the wonderful food, IdaNell had a fascinating book describing the history of the house. Reviewing the comments of other travelers in her journal, it is clear that she is a great hostess. Our dogs also loved it and had their first experience watching the chickens behind the property.

Clean, quaint, cozy, just perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house was a perfect place to stay. We cooked in and the host had all the essentials for a great home-cooked dinner. The host even provided dessert, a breakfast casserole and one of the best loafs of bread we've had in a while. Highly recommend this home for HomeAway guests.

We absolutely LOVED Nora's Cottage. We were originally booked to stay at The Westerman House but it was accidentally double booked so IdaNell offered Miss Nora's Cottage to us instead. Everything from the decor, to the amazing complimentary baked goods, to the screened in porch... we had an absolute blast :) Thanks again IdaNell!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for being willing to move to Miss Nora's! I am very happy you liked it! It's a B&B owner's worst nightmare to double-book, but with patient, flexible guests like you, it worked.
