Our purpose for being in the Dripping Springs environs was to prepare for our daughter's fall wedding at Ma Maison, just 3.5 miles east on Bell Springs Road. We had appointments to keep, tours to take, and food, wines, and craft brews to sample. In addition, we hoped to get some much needed R&R in the country! Well, we succeeded!!1 Arrived Friday before dark with an ice chest full of food and moved in for a long weekend. We felt right at home and were very comfortable. Enjoyed eating on the porch and picnicing on the run. The night sky was brilliant (every night). You feel like your at some remote spot in the Hill Country and yet your less than 10 miles NW of Dripping Springs. Gary and Rene are great hosts!
