A little piece of heaven...

  • 5 of 5
I had been looking forward to this getaway for months and was just blown away by the property! The pictures do NOT do it justice. It's decorated just right and it's just so dang cozy! We had the best sleep that we've had in YEARS. So peaceful and serene! The owners are so friendly and I was grateful that my dogs were allowed to come with because they had a great time too! They played all day and loved watching (and baying at) all the animals! I cannot wait to come here again! I think we've found our "regular" vacation spot!

Owner's Response: Well behaved dogs are always welcome guests. Fall weather does make sleeping late oh so inviting. Thank you for the great review and we will see you again soon.

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I looked all over for a place to stay that allowed medium size dogs, and took a chance with reserving Terri and Dana's place in Lockhart, TX. I made a great choice as this was the most relaxing stay I have experienced in a long time! My family felt at home from the time we walked through the door. I will definitely stay there again.

Fun times in Lockhart

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time on our vacation. I especially enjoyed the stocked fishing pond! It was HOT, but tubing on the San Marcos River really cooled us off. I would definately return to this spot in the future, but in a cooler month.

Owner's Response: August has always been dreadfully hot in central Texas. The cool spring fed creek water or the San Marcos River are a must in the heat of the summer. Hope to be seeing you again soon!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This was just what our family of 6 was looking for in a vacation rental! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay---especially the peacocks and the fishing pond! Our small dog was also very at home inside and out in the well-fenced backyard.

This home is actually better than the pictures! It was also the cleanest and well- stocked home we have ever stayed in on Home Away (about 6 years running now). Location is 30 minutes in any direction from so many awesome things, which made for great day trips. Great hosts, too!

Owner's Response: We do try to anticipate everyone's needs so you don't have to run to the store as soon as you get there. Four legged family members are always welcome. The peacocks are dropping their feathers now that it has hit 100 degrees, but the best time during the summer for fishing is early or late when it is the coolest. I have just restocked the tackle box with some nice top water lures.

Thank you Dana and Terri for letting us enjoy your guest house. We had a wonderful time. The house was just as described and such a short drive in to Lockhart. We couldn't pass on enjoying the barbeque at Kreuz Market and a cold drink at Lilly's Bar. The peacocks and geese were a nice change for us! My family and I can't wait to relax there on Labor Day Weekend. Marshall, our lab, enjoyed sitting in the sun, while we sat on the patio.

Owner's Response: Your lab was very well behaved and will be welcomed back. The white peacocks will be full feathered this winter so they should be an added attraction. Hopefully the weather will be cooler during next visit. Thank you for the excellent review.

The guest house was truly a retreat for us. The information about the house was accurate, excellent

  • 5 of 5
Our hosts, Dana and Terri were welcoming and very helpful. The home is a wonderful place to learn about the area. There are DVD's of movies filmed in the Lockhart area that we thoroughly enjoyed. The home is very well maintained with every amenity a guest could expect as shown on the listing. We enjoyed the Lockhart area and were able to visit San Marcos and San Antonio. We booked it once again for December, January and added February for next year. 5 star rating for us!
