About Joan Reed

I was born in Llano, raised on our family ranch and graduated from Llano High School. Attended college in Austin and moved back to Llano to marry. Lost my husband of 42 years to cancer. Remarried in 2008 to Lony Reed.

Joan Reed purchased this house in 2005

Why Joan Reed chose Hill Country

My husband and his late wife came from Louisiana for many years each fall to hunt. They fell in love with Llano county and decided to make it their home. They worked to clear the land and built their house and Mountain View. Mountain View was originally built for Lony's mother-in-law.

What makes this house unique

From the living room and the front porch there is a view of the surrounding mountains to the east. The sunrises are awesome! Don't be surprised if the miniature donkeys and Gypsy (the horse) come up to the fence for "treats".

Perfect Easter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We so much enjoyed this peaceful and beautiful little house! The scenery was breathtaking! The house is was cozy enough for three adults and a baby, but had room for at least four more! We enjoyed dinner and breakfast on the screened porch and fed the donkeys and cows by hand. I highly recommend this house!

We completely enjoyed our stay at the Mountain View Guest House! The welcoming from the Reeds and their many four-legged family members began the start of our heartwarming stay. The guest house surrounded by beautiful flowers and plants and mountain views provided a comfortable and relaxing stay. The ranch tour and history were much appreciated and ended up being one of the favorite parts of our trip. Thank you to the Reeds for sharing your lovely place! We would definitely stay again.

A beautiful and heartwarming stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Mountain View Guest House! It was our sanctuary after hiking nearby Enchanted Rock...although we could've just hiked the backyard of the guest house and been just as happy...the place is amazing. The home had everything we needed...and the icing on the cake was the heartwarming charm provided by the homeowners...and their beautiful animals kept on the property! My boys were super excited to hand feed the horse and miniature donkeys! Thank you Mr & Mrs Reed...can't wait to go back!

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

If you love the hill country you will love Mountain View Guest House. It is set on a perfect hill country ranch. Wonderful views, plenty of room to hike on the property and Lony and Joan complete to experience. What wonderful hosts.

Bonus, it is only 10 minutes from Enchanted Rock. You can actually see it from the back of the ranch.
