First of all, I was not a particularly good leader of my group - plans fell through (twice) - and we needed a lodging solution for 6 the day of! After calling or e-mailing every property in Spicewood, landing one and then losing it, calling several in Fredricksburg and beyond, I finally got home to find an email sent by Mary Booth just hours before we were to depart.
It was a tremendous enough gesture that the Booths - Ray is great BTW - accommodated us same day, but beyond that they were understanding with several arrival/departure and timing issues edgewise. Only slightly less important than the customer service and hospitality extended by the Booths, the pub is exactly what it looks like in the photos! There's no bait and switch, no element of surprise. It is as charming and as rustic and as positively enchanting as you imagine, but then wonder if you're crazy, when you look at the photos. It's everything you see and more!
For what you get with this booking (ESPECIALLY at the price) - enough room to host a rodeo - basically your own personal bar, pub, or nightclub - the seclusion to use it - extremely clean and comfortable accommodations upstairs - great water pressure in both showers - laundry on-site - a spacious kitchen and tremendous customer service - significant entertainment options (e.g. Karaoke!!!) - it's a wonder Pilot's Pub isn't being booked for YEAR(s) at a time! I miss it since we've left, I truly do.
Everything about Pilot's Pub was so great that I feel as if I owe Ray and Mary Booth more than just a Thank You and a lot more than what it cost to rent the Pub. I've got all the mind in the world to pay them in full plus interest. That's how highly I recommend Pilot's Pub! I can't wait to go back. It's the perfect spot for so many different types of getaways.
