About John Briggs

I am a 7th generation Texas with roots back to the Parker Family. I feel very attached to this land because my family was directly involved in the fight for the Independence of Texas.

John Briggs purchased this house in 2015

Why John Briggs chose Boerne

My husband and I purchased this property and built our house because of the location. We are truly in the country with all the country charm, yet we are also close to town, I10 and Tapatio Spring. We are only 30 miles to San Antonio and 60 miles to Fredericksburg. It is the best of two worlds. We wanted other people to be able to experience what we feel is a great about Texas.

What makes this house unique

Our guest house is unique is because it is new construction made to be a guest house. It is located in the middle of the property with lots of privacy and all kinds of wild life. The landscaping is made up of all natural plants.

We are handicap accessible.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I immediately felt at home in this beautiful secure guest house nestled in a park and retreat like setting. It has all the amenities of home and is very roomy and comfortable. We stayed for 3 weeks and it was hard to leave. While there are exciting things to do nearby for those who vacation, we have friends and family in the area and we wanted a "second home" for an extended stay. This was perfect. Sally and Ryan are very hospitable and responded immediately to any concerns that came up. The property beyond the guest house was available to explore and the wildlife entertaining. We are looking forward to scheduling a return stay. This is the best of Boerne for us!

Wonderful base for travel around the Hill Country

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and well-appointed guest house near Boerne, TX. The pictures are accurate, but do not do it justice. Secluded and quiet, yet close to virtually all of the Hill Country, Austin and even San Antonio. We've used this guest house as our base for the last two years and we really hate to leave it to travel to other towns and attractions because it is so homey, quiet and relaxing that you just want to hang out there and enjoy it.

Sally and Ryan, the owners, are great to deal with and are very cooperative, helpful and just plain nice people.

Great guest house!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect guest house for two couples! We enjoyed three days here with good friends. The house is beautifully furnished and in a quiet area. Loved relaxing on the porch in the evening after browsing shops in Boerne and Comfort. We highly recommend this guest house.

Amazing home and wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The home is conveniently located right outside Boerne, with quick access to Boerne, San Antonio, Leon Springs, Gruene, and other fun Texas sights. The home was beautifully appointed and private. We are already making plans to come back! Thank you Ryan and Sally!

Absolutely EXCEPTIONAL property

  • 5 of 5

We are concluding our second winter spent at the ranch guest house, and we truly hate to leave. The grandkids love coming to visit so they can hike on the ranch trails and fish in the nicely stocked pond. My wife will miss the community of Boerne (just a mile or so away) with its shops, restaurants, walking trails, plus much much more. She also will miss the privacy that this property affords. No problem with sitting out on the front deck in a robe or pajamas, drinking coffee and taking in the surroundings provided by nature. I will miss the golf at Tapatio, a scenic course just 3-4 miles away. And the landlord, who has become a good golfing buddy.

The owners rightfully take much pride in this property and are responsive to every need that may arise. They make themselves available, yet do not intrude in the least. I highly recommend a stay here!
