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.
