Our family of six planned a relaxing weekend on the Llano River, and we arrived late Friday afternoon, to a beautiful Texas Hill Country setting... complete with a setting sun, and cows 'mooing' in the field!
The breathtaking views, the stunning 1800's stone farmhouse, and the incredible history, was more then we expected! We even found the engraved '1883' date on the original family cabinet in the living room, (after serious super-sleuthing!)
We had such a great family Labor Day weekend, exploring Castell, the Llano River and all areas in between. We only went into Mason twice, which wasn't enough! Once it was to pick up dinner, to bring back to the house (well, we HAD to watch our Texas Longhorns play Notre Dame!!)
The house was so comfortable, and each room made us all feel so much at home. The kitchen was perfect, having everything I needed, to make a big breakfast each day. (What a treat to arrive and already have milk and orange juice in the 'frig!) The added notes on the table of 'where to go and what to do' was especially nice.
I think the crowning touch was watching the neon sun rise above the hills, through a cloud of morning fog, while we sat and drank coffee on the front porch. (Would love to send you a photo!)
There is no doubt, we will be back!!!
Thank you Pat, and Robin!
