Experience history

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent six weeks in this completely renovated German Farm house while relocating. The home looks just like the pictures. The two bedrooms and baths are very spacious and allowed for us to put all our belongings away and out of site. We found the home quite, clean, well maintained and stocked with about any non-perishable item you need. We celebrated Christmas here with our extended family. On Christmas Eve, we all walked to the sweet church across the street and attended the candle light service. There is a large BBQ that we used often out back and a wonderful large porch to enjoy the warmer weather. Linda has lived in the area for many years and can help you with just about any question you have. I would certainly stay here again and I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in or around the Canyon Lake area. New Braunfels, Greune, San Antonio, Austin and all the small hill country towns are all within an hour. Big plus for us - the neighborhood includes a private park on the Guadalupe River and has enough flat pavement to run a 3.5 mile circuit. Just beautiful.

Charming and peaceful home in the middle of all the Hill Country has to offer

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Mildred House for three months this summer and will be going back next summer. We rented it because we have really come to enjoy Canyon Lake and wanted to spend a few months in the area in our first year of marriage. The location allowed us to explore more of the Hill Country including Gruene for shopping and concerts, Flat Rock ranch for mountain biking and obviously the lake. We often went into Gruene or Wimberely for dinner as each was around 15 - 20 minutes away. The owner and her late husband did a remarkable job of converting the 150 year old home into a very comfortable modern day retreat. If you stay there when the weather is cooler, sleep upstairs with the window above your head open, its heavenly. Finally, I'll just add that the house is very quiet and peaceful with a great deck for lounging. We never had any of the neighbors bother us.

We recently spent two months in this historically restored home located a long block from the Guadalupe River. The description by the owner details the house exactly as we found it to be. During our stay we were able to have family and friends visit and found the space ample for entertaining.
We very much enjoyed spending hours on the large front porch, a great spot for reading or just enjoying life. The nearby residential area was a pleasant place to take long walks with our small dog. The house is well located near Canyon Lake and allowed us a variety of day trips nearby. Of special interest is Gruene with it's historic Gristmill and Gruene Hall. We also visited Austin, the large outlet malls near San Marcos, Winberly, San Antonio, Fredericksburg and Kerrville. A dining suggestion is to try "The Italian Garden" restaurant in Canyon Lake. It's worth several visits.
The proud owner, Linda Johns, is delightful to know and made us feel welcome in true Texas style. She lives nearby and was a wonderful source for information about everything in the area.
We enjoyed our stay in Texas and may return after visits to other southwestern states.
