About Nancy and Jason Herndon

We have lived all over Texas, the United States, and quite a few locations around the world but there was never any doubt that we would call Fredericksburg, Texas HOME. From our first travels together many year ago, we always stayed in VRBO/HomeAway properties and B&Bs. We knew what we loved in those properties and couldn't wait to own our own vacation home and provide the same for our guests.

Nancy and Jason Herndon purchased this house in 2013

Why Nancy and Jason Herndon chose Hill Country

Acorn Cottage gives you the feel of a historic farm house from the outside, but once you walk in you are surrounded with modern amenities. The open floor plan is one of the great things about this house. It's the perfect location for friends and/or family to come together.

Relaxing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a relaxing place to stay! We really enjoyed the back deck and yard. We also loved the open floor plan downstairs! Great hospitality and fast response to any questions from the owners. They even stopped by to drop off missing trash bags and threw in a bottle of wine from their favorite vineyard!

The Acorn House was the perfect getaway house!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in the Acorn House with my girlfriends for my bachelorette party! We instantly feel in love the moment we pulled into the driveway. And the inside was just as great! There was enough seating at the dinning table for use to enjoy some dinner and wine and plenty of cozy spots in the living room for girl talk. We spent the morning drinking coffee on the patio listening to the morning birds. The entire house was well furnished with very comfy beds. We spent some time exploring the place to read all of the clever signs and checking out the antiques.

This house was exactly what we were looking for and I would definitely return!

Beautiful home, kind and helpful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home last minute to evacuate Hurricane Harvey. The owners were kind and immediately responded, letting us stay for the same night as the inquiry. We were unsure as to how long we would need the home for, depending on the damage from the hurricane. Jason worked with me every step of the way and checked in on us.

The home is beautiful, spacious and decorated with class. The kitchen is well stocked and the bedrooms are so open and roomy. You will enjoy your stay here and feel at home in a beautiful setting. We will definitely return!

Great Weekend Home!

  • 5 of 5

From the very beginning of the process, Jason and Nancy have had fabulous customer service! We looked at their other property, but had some last minute changes to our party and they were able to sccommadate us at Acorn. They did not disappoint! The property was clean, easily to access and a great location! All the attendants of the bachelorette party were very complimentary of the accommodations. The customer service was second to none. The weekend spent here has life-customers if life brings us or any of our friends back to Fredericksburg.
