Overview

Mason Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Henry Hasse and his wife, Fredericka, emigrated from Germany and purchased this ranch in 1860. They built a log structure on the property and replaced it in 1883 with this stone farm house. The house is built in the style of German farm houses in the 1850s and is listed in the National Register of Historical Places because it one of the very few authentic German farm houses with their original structure intact. It has been completely modernized inside to make it comfortable for modern visitors.

The house is on Highway 29, two hours from Austin and San Antonio, and 6.9 miles east of Mason. It is 27 miles from Llano and 48 miles from Fredericksburg.

The house and the ranch offer a romantic, charming weekend or getaway only a few hours from Austin or San Antonio.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

Living Texas History

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation at Hasse Haus was much more than a "stay." It was a sojourn into Texas history enshrined in a lovingly preserved property set on a still "working" ranch in the storied Hill Country. Here we experienced the "stars at night," exquisite sunsets, sights and sounds of wildlife under the "Comanche" Moon, and the American experience of the Hasse family as they worked, endured, and ultimately triumphed in their quest to establish a good life in a new Nation. We arose each morning to view the sun come up over the ridge, open the wooden shutters, fill the stone walled house with the aromas of coffee and breakfast and hurry out the door to walk the nature trails. We were "adopted" by the generous and loving members of the Art Methodist Church across the road, and these precious neighbors will remain life-long friends. Hasse Haus and the people of Art and Mason are true gems deep in the real heart of the very big heart of Texas.

Owner's Response: Jack,

It was a great pleasure to have you as our guests. The community of Art is full of wonderful people, whom we have known for generations. I am glad you got the chance to get to know some of them.

Art, TX was originally named Plewehville, after a local founder, musician, and teacher. When they wanted to establish mail service, the U.S. Post Office decided Plewehville was unsuitable. They sent a list of acceptable names to the community. Since the inhabitants only spoke German at that time, they had little understanding of any of the names. They picked the first one on the list (Art), and sent the form back to the Post Office.

Loved the Texas Hillcountry!

I stayed at the Hasse house during the spring of 2011. It was such a peaceful experience that brought back my youth growing up on a ranch. The house was quaint and gave you the feel of not only living on a ranch but also what it might have been like for the pioneers to the area over 100 years ago. The caretakers were very attentive and kind to any need or question that I had during my stay. The owner of the property was very kind and demonstrated wonderful Texas hospitality during my stay. In addition to seeing the working ranch's cattle, I also saw wild turkeys, wild boar, hummingbirds, and antelope. The location is a good distance from both Austin and San Antonio; which was an easy trip to make.

Owner's Response: Karalea,

Thanks for your kind words. We would be delighted to have you back anytime. We just re-did both bathrooms with new tiled showers, plus have added new electric stove and microwave which I hope will make the house even more enjoyable.

Map

Guests at the house typically enjoy walking through the ranch on the two mile nature trail. The ranch holds a variety of wildlife, including deer, raccoons, migratory birds, and all the other native species of the Hill Country. The old field has a grove of native pecan trees. In the north end of the property (along Hasse Creek) is one of the few remaining groves of post oak trees in the country. The rest were cut down to build the original houses.

Other Activities: Kayaking and wildlife viewing.
