My husband, two kids and dog all stayed at the big cottage. What a beautiful house and property. It was easy travel into San Antonio and we went to Shlitterbahn which wasn't a bad drive at about 40 minutes away. Even though it was August while we were there, we were always drawn outside by the great property, porch, swings and fire pit. The huge old trees and the breeze we got at the top of the hill where the house sits created such a pleasant temperature. Even the kids ignored the electronics most of the time and spent most their time outside. The main road was far enough away that the dog could roam and explore without us worrying about cars. The horses are very friendly and deer sightings happened every day. I can't wait to have an excuse to stay at the cottage again and have already recommended it to my friends.
