We are a lively couple who decided to start our guest house in the home next to ours. We had the idea one night and two months later we opened for business. We spend a majority of our time away from our normal job working on the ranch and enjoying the peace and quiet of the country. We will always respect your privacy; however, if you want to chat and have a drink together we would love to do so. If you ever need anything, please let us know.

Bonnie has deep roots in the San Marcos/Kyle area, and this property has been in her family for more than 4 generations. She is a graduate of Southwest Texas University, now Texas State, and majored in Sociology. She loves to get to know people, and you will love talking to her. She has spent time in Germany and loves to work on her Deustch when she has a chance.

Andrew is originally from Fredericksburg, TX and found himself in the Kyle area after leaving the active duty Army in 2004. He is a graduate of Texas Tech and majored in Business. He shares Bonnie's passion and love for the land and calls the ranch his 'happy place.' You will often see him on the tractor and working on the property. He is also a people person and can grill the best steaks in Texas. Andrew also has a daughter that you may see. Natalie is the light of our lives and she loves her home with us on the ranch. You might even get to enjoy some farm fresh eggs from her chickens if we have a surplus!

We would love to share our little piece of happiness with you! Come join us on the ranch and we guarantee you will want to stay here again and again.

The Ranch and H Heart - The ranch is a small piece of what it used to be. All of the area around us and even up to Roland Lane was owned by several sides of the family (Hughson, Rowland [Roland], and Conway). Through the generations the land was swapped, split, or sold leaving us with this 125 acre track that we call home. We hope to continue the tradition and pass it on to a 5th generation in the future.

The name “H Heart” comes from the family brand. Cecil Hughson, Bonnie’s great-grandfather known by her as “Pop,” was a Kyle area cattleman for many years. The love for the land, farming, and ranching, continued in the Hughson blood line. Bonnie’s grandfather, Papa, also raised cattle. He was known in the local area for another reason; baseball. “Tex” Hughson pitched for the University of Texas at Austin and the Boston Red Sox in the 1940s. Stanley, Bonnie's father, followed in the family footsteps. He farmed this land and raised cattle and goats on it until his death in 2009.

As we mentioned above, the porches are amazing and we enjoy them as much as we can. Our past guests have really enjoyed them as well. Although we are close to the city, if you are in the back yard you would never know it. The property just has a great, peaceful, calming ability that can't be explained. You have to experience it to understand!

GREAT HOME, DOWN TO THE MINUTE DETAIL.

  • 5 of 5
The house is very comfortable and exact to how it is described on the website. It's a perfect location close to the highway yet far out in the country. The house has all the comforts a home would have. The owners looked into every detail as to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They were very friendly and always there if there was any concern or question we had. We would pick this house again when we come back to Kyle, and we definitely recommend it.

EVERYTHING WE HOPED FOR AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
The Guest House was very clean, very nicely decorated and very comfortable beds. We stayed for our son's wedding at Texas Old Town. It was so close to the wedding and easy to get to. It was the hub for our wedding crowd. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. Truly a wonderful place to stay and Andrew was very helpful with questions. I even shipped down a package for the rehearsal dinner before we arrived. I would encourage a stay there, even if you weren't going down for a wedding. It was pretty great, all in all.

LOVELY HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely lovely home. Very spacious and clean. It was perfect for our family to stay at while we attended our son's graduation from Texas State University. It is only about 5 miles from San Marcos.

Everything we needed, and more, was included. Snacks, toiletries, ice water all provided. We cooked meals and found every utensil we needed.

The back porch was lovely for morning coffee and perfect for happy hour!

We met the owners and they were very nice. I highly recommend this property.

GREAT HOME, GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We rented the home for a couple of families to stay together while in the area. It is so much nicer that any of the hotels you would be able to find and for the price it cannot be beat.

The house was clean, spacious and decorated very nice. The master bath was one that everyone should have - double sinks, huge shower, toilet in a seperate room! The towels were better than any hotel I have ever used.

When they say the house is fully stocked - it really is. There were no utensils we could not find and there were extras that made it a real home - qtips in the bathroom, snacks in a bowl in the kitchen.

If in the area again I would stay there in a h heartbeat!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful home is only 1.3 miles from Texas Old Town. We stayed there when my daughter got married and loved the convenience. The owners have put so much thought into the amenities and have done a great job anticipating the needs of their guests. I would wholeheartedly recommend this home.

A LOVELY PLACE TO STAY - GREAT LOCATION!

  • 3 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here. The house itself is spacious and well-equipped, with a nice Texas feel to it. The owners have thought of even the littlest details, spare razors, toothbrushes, snacks, etc. The back porch overlooks the Blanco River and there are cattle in the pasture next door. Although you feel like you are in the country, it's only minutes to San Marcos, Kyle, Buda and Austin. Our son was married at Texas Old Town just two miles up the road and this was the perfect home base for all of our family to stay. I highly recommend the H Heart Guest House!
