About Dale Fortenberry Jr.

I am an 8th generation Texan and this property has been in my family for some time. This particular house was my grandparents' and my parents' home is about to be listed with VRBO as additional accommodation. I am also in the process of developing the Heart of Texas Ranch on which this property is located into a Winery and Event Center for Weddings, family reunions, celebrations and corporate events.

What makes this house unique

I also own Heart of Texas Wine Tours and offer my guests a 10% discount on any wine tour taken.

This property was the most beautiful, peaceful, wonderful view & breath taking place that the entire family enjoyed staying. We celebrated my grandparents 51st anniversary its spacious & well equipped. Everyone had there own bedroom & enjoyed the comfortable beds. Already planning to go back next year.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
During my weekend stay at the Texas Hill Country Retreat, I slept in the gameroom on one of the futon beds. The futon bed makes into a queen size bed and is firm, but comfortable. The bathroom is very elegant, with a glass bowl sitting on top of the marble counter for the sink. The sink was a little high for my 5'2" frame, but could easily be remedied with a step stool. These are not complaints, just information for whomever may need to know. I would highly recommend this place for a weekend get-away, a wedding party, or any kind of large weekend get-together. Great experience!

Fun Getaway!

Adorable home in the Hill Country. Would highly recommend for a small group or part of a larger one if renting the nearby big house. Great location to Marble Falls, Wineries and Lake Travis. Wonderful home away from home.

Soooooo Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
I reviewed the other main home as well, as that is where we spent most of our time with all of our friends for the great "Big Chill" weekend (it was fab!), but this home is where we slept. Oh wow, what a charming, sweet, CLEAN, fresh home! We loved our room with the most comfortable thick mattress and and fresh soft warm bedding. The bathroom we used is a good size, with a great walk in shower (nice HOT shower that I must have!), big vessel sink, and they even leave makeup remover wipes for us girls. The kitchen is open and bright with all the tools you need to cook up just about anything! A big game room with pool table and games was an added bonus! We relaxed a little and watched a movie on the big flat screen T.v. in the living room before we headed back out to the big house to join everyone for dinner. We had absolutely the BEST weekend here, and I would recommend this home to anyone! We loved our gracious hosts, Dale and Kasey! They made us feel so right at home! Everything was perfect! I cant wait to do this again with all my pals!!
