Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful girl's weekend! We didn't mind the beautiful drive back and forth from Harper into Fredericksburg as we just got to see more of the hill country. The wine and cheese/meat/olive tray was great! You had everything and much more than we needed at your hide away especially in the kitchen. It was also nice to meet you, Lori, and your husband. If back in the area, we would definitely stay at your nice, quiet and lovely property.

We have done a girls weekend ( my mom,me and my 2 girls) twice and it was perfect. You wake up in this huge home, beautifully decorated, in the country. We go th Fredericksburg , shop, eat, sight see and come back and enjoy the huge covered back porch. We love that there are birds and deer and peaceful beauty. We will return again and again!

Lori, our host is so wonderful, she knows how to make you feel welcome!!

Great property & home!

  • 5 of 5

2 friends & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lori's home for 3 nights. It was well stocked with things we might need and we really appreciated the wine & snacks at the end of our long trip into the area. The rooms (& house!) were clean, comfortable & peaceful, as were the surroundings. We got to use the patios in beautiful weather at the end of our very action packed days of shopping, going to the LBJ ranch and visiting a few of the many Vineyards. Thanks for your hospitality & kindness during our stay. Everyone agreed this was a blissful, wonderful weekend and your home was a big part of our experience!

We are located about 27 miles from Fredricksburg which is a quaint little town with German roots. Main street is lined with shops, restaurants and even a microbrewery and winery. There are also a multitude of wineries on Hwy 290 from Harper to Johnson City. A wonderful way to spend the day. The Fredricksburg Municipal golf course is quite nice.

Kerrville is about 25 miles away and has a winery and several nice restaurants. The Guadalupe River runs through the center of Kerrville and there are a few places to rent kayaks and fish. Comfort is about 40 miles away and is a wonderful spot for antiquing. Junction is about 30 miles west of us and has a beautiful river and park. San Antonio is about an hour and fifteen minutes and is famous for the River Walk, the Majestic Theater, San Antonio Zoo and several public golf courses. Please feel free to contact me at 830-739-0012 with any questions that I can answer to help you plan your vacation.
