  • The Essence of the Texas Hill Country

    "This property is hill country perfection. We took a family trip to Rio De Looney in early April. The house is wonderful, with plenty of room, a well-appointed kitchen, and everything you need for a comfortable vacation. We enjoyed the large screened-in porch, which is a great place to relax and sip coffee in the morning while listening to the sounds of nature. It also was a good location for several friendly ping pong tournaments! The kiddos and adults both enjoyed exploring the property, and the wildflowers were in full bloom. Lots of beautiful bluebonnets and indian paintbrushes dotted the front meadow, and that gave us a nice backdrop for some great pictures of our family. We challenged each other in horse-shoes while the smell of apple wood and mesquite smoke teased us all afternoon, working its magic on the racks of ribs in the smoker. The Llano river is very close to the house, and the hang-out area next to the river is beautiful. Although the nights were chilly, the days were warm enough to tempt us into the cold river water, and we spent hours swimming, fishing, and exploring the nice rock formations out in the middle of the river. The scenery is exquisite, and we felt as if we had a unique state park all to ourselves. At night, we would crack open a cold beer and crowd around the fire pit as the 360 degree view of the Texas sky unveiled an unrivaled display of stars. As a shooting star whizzed by, I wished for a property like this of my own. If you are planning a trip to the Llano area, this property will definitely not disappoint. The entire trip was a complete five star experience, as were my interactions with Karen, who made everything very easy and convenient. We all hope to return to this little slice of heaven on the banks of the Llano, where the spring nights are cool, the river water is cooler, and the beer is ice cold!"

  • Beautiful Cottage and Quiet Setting

    "We decided to stay in Fredericksburg as a hub for our day trips. This cottage caught our interest since it was walking distance to downtown and the reviews were good. Pat assured us that the pictures don't do this place justice. And was he ever right. This house is beautiful. The decor and Carlotta's art are fantastic and the bed is very comfortable. This is the kind of place we were hoping to find. We really enjoyed the back porch and creek. A couple of evenings we just sat on the porch, listened to music, and sipped wine. It's a serene setting. Pat and Carlotta have done a wonderful job with this place. We'll be back."

  • We loved SAKS!

    "We were a group of 8. 4 adults and 4 small children. We had a great time at SAKS! The photos do not do this property justice! The water depth is perfect for younger kiddos. The kitchen is fully stocked with all your cooking needs. There's a local coffee shop down the road that is adorable. Check it out as well! The only recommendation I would make is to bring water shoes as the sandy bottom can do a number on bare feet. We will be returning to this property in the near future."

  • Clean, Beautiful Property

    "We had a great stay here! Really nice place on a really neat property. Very close to downtown. Pull out couch is not terribly comfortable (but they never are) and it's in a room with lots of beautiful windows but no shades - so it's bright early! :) So maybe not the best option if you need someone to sleep out there, but the two bedrooms were GREAT and very, very spacious. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again!"
