2 bedroom, 2 bath classic home with huge indoor/outdoor entertaining options.
The home sit on a well-treed, one acre lot with backyard has been transformed into the ultimate in relaxation. There is an outdoor kitchen, equipped for a relaxing day of BBQ, plenty of lawn chairs for enjoying the country on a 500 square foot deck. Adjacent to the deck is a small play area for young kids. In the back of the one acre property is a large fire pit and a swinging daybed nestled in a grove of Live Oak trees. In the front of the home is a beautiful covered porch that looks directly at the centuries old historical tree and shaded by the largest Mountain Laurel we have ever seen.
You will have access to the historic 2 bedroom, 2 bath home, backyard, fire pit and plenty of parking. We occasionally stay in the 2 bedroom guest house at the back of the property, but like to stay out of your way and unseen. We like to make the stay more relaxing by providing dinner for our guest the first evening from the Texas Pie Company.

About Mary Season
We are both avid runners who moved from Austin, Texas to Kyle, Texas to slow down just a bit. We own a running shoe store and train thousands of people each year for running events. We also love to work on the house in our spare time, run around Colorado, make pizza in our pizza oven and drink craft beer.
Mary Season purchased this House in 2014
Why Mary Season chose Kyle
We completely, lovingly restored this craftsmen style home that was built in 1918. In addition to completely remodeling and modernizing this vintage home, we added a unique and versatile outdoor living space. We built an outdoor kitchen that includes a three tap, draught beer system, a handcrafted wood-fired pizza oven and an amazing deck which includes a covered bar. This space is relaxing oasis just one exit off this world's crazy modern highway. Relax and kick-back on either the beautiful, covered front porch with views of the historic Auction Oak and an unbelievably large Mountain Laurel or spit a cool draught beer off the 500 square foot back deck overlooking the acre property. There is a large fire pit for gatherings and a relaxing, swinging daybed surrounded by gorgeous Live Oaks. .
What makes this House unique
We know the challenges that traveling present. As a couple who use VRBO consistently, we understand the little touches can make all the difference in your stay. To this end, we provide a meal for 4-6 from Kyle's famous Texas Pie Company . We understand the last thing you want to do is cook a meal after you arrive at your destination so we provide this benefit to welcome you into our home. Texas Pe Company offers delicious Texas casseroles and salads. Choose from their famous Chicken Pot Pie, King Ranch Chicken, Chicken Tetrazzini, Three Cheese Lasagna or Beef Stroganoff. Let us know what you want and wether you'll need a meal for 4 or 6 people and we'll be sure it is waiting for you when you arrive. Just pre-heat the oven and pop in your delicious, pre-cooked meal. Our hope is having this convenience will make your stay as relaxing as as if this were your own home.

Quaint little historic house in Kyle!
Our stay was wonderful! The house was cute, quaint and lovely. We really enjoyed out stay! Loved seeing all of the books in the house and they had an incredible music selection of cds to play! Highly recommend!
Beautiful and comfy home in a quaint little town.
Loved the house! The house very aesthetically pleasing and has a homey feel despite all the updates. The owners are very accommodating and provide all the information you need to have a great time. The house is walking distance from a small park, few places to eat, and a great pie shop. 10 minutes away are larger chain stores like Walmart, HEB, Target, etc. in case you need to pick anything up.
The pictures cannot capture the loveliness of this home and the property. It is charming, comfortable, spacious and conveniently located. We plan to return because we just loved spending time in this place. The owner was helpful, responsive, and welcoming. I am thankful this property is available for renting. A great place!!!!
We stayed in this charming house when we were in town for a wedding in Driftwood. The proximity to downtown Austin and Driftwood was perfect for us. Everything was perfect from the comfy beds to the big master shower. I highly recommend and wish we would have had time to use the pizza oven!
Well maintained and beautiful Historic home in Kyle

My son and daughter-in-law and their children absolutely loved staying at this house!
