We enjoyed this home for a girls weekend. The view is breathtaking and the home was comfortable. There are a few little things that could be done, however, to make this house truly remarkable. There were not enough untensils for us to use without washing them between meals. The rest of kitchen was well stocked. The hot tub did not work properly. The home manual stated the water needed to be at a certain level which it was when we got in, but adding bodies brings up the water line. It heated for about thirty minutes before it shut down with an error message. It heated again after time, but we didn't get back in it. The hot tub is usually a highlight for our trip so this was disappointing. I would also say, a privacy screen or trellis, would be nice by hot tub. The home next to this property is in terrible condition and gave off an uncomfortable vibe. While we enjoyed the view during the day and understand not wanting to obstruct it, some curtains to pull over windows at night would go a long way in making the house feel more private. Labels on all the light switches would be helpful (there were some) and there were a couple lights missing so living room was fairly dim at night. Also, instructions on how to work the living room tv in the home manual would be helpful.
Overall, we loved our stay and would definitely consider staying in this home again. I just hope my suggestions will help in improving this home as a rental and for those renting it.
Our family had a great Thanksgiving weekend stay at this beautiful Lake view home in Briarcliff. Jill was a wonderful host by making sure the house was easy to find, easy to enter, and ready before our arrival. We had everything needed to cook our thanksgiving dinner and plenty of storage containers to save our leftovers. There was plenty of room for the four of us, and the house could have easily accommodated twice the number. The beds were comfortable, there was plenty of towels, and the house was definitely arranged to host guest. We spent the cool evenings and mornings near the river and ponds marveling at the wildlife and beauty of this part of the country.
It is very close to Austin and a little over an hour to Fredricksburg, so you will find plenty to do. It is a great house in a terrific location.
