About Brook Fritz
My wife and I are avid travelers of the world and love going on new adventures. We have a passion for Italy and have been fortunate to have visited there many times and have explored thousands of kilometers from north to south. We love Italian food, cozy fires, snowfall, good food and good red wine. Brook is an avid skier/snowboarder and plays the guitar & sings. Bella is a world-class wedding photographer, designer and gourmet cook. We want our guests to have an incredible experience staying in our home, enjoying all of the comforts, lacking nothing, as well the wonderful amenities that The Woodlands has to offer. Our style of travelling is very independent and we prefer to stay in an Air BnB home or apartment anywhere in the world so we can "live local-shop local", trying to blend with the locals. Motto: If you're not having fun, you're either doing it wrong, or you shouldn't be doing it at all.

Inviting home in a convenient location
This is a comfortable, inviting home in a convenient and quiet neighborhood. Very nice home base for a trip to the area! A bonus was the Monopoly set; we had a great time playing!
What a beautiful home! After a very long day of travel, opening the door to LoneStar was a balm for the soul. Every room was shining, spotless, and inviting! I have very high standards for cleanliness and there was absolutely no need to clean or wipe down surfaces before unpacking and getting settled in. The living room is open, welcoming, and very comfortable. The master bedroom is luxurious. The room has ample space, with an ensuite large bath, and a walk-in closet. We found the kitchen well maintained and well-equipped. The lighting options for the kitchen allow for bright working/cooking needs, or more subdued, romantic effects. There were plenty of fluffy towels and the bed linens were soft and comfortable. The arrangement of the rooms and furniture provide plenty of space to entertain as well as to find a quiet corner to read. The backyard is a lovely area as well. We needed to touch base with Brook and Bella on a minor issue and they got back to us in a timely way.
The only inconvenience was the lack of storage for food, and counter space. There is no storage area for food, so several days' supply of food on the counter reduced the existing limited counter space available. A little tight, but doable.
Beyond the gate in the backyard are miles of paved walkways which we happily explored. We visited Lake Conroe and went geocaching around the area. We also went target shooting at Saddle River Range- a great range with archery too. There are many restaurants in the area to choose from, and picking up groceries was easy with a store one half mile from the house.
This is an excellent choice for folks looking for a quiet getaway, as well as for those who love to explore. It's in a great location and is the perfect home away from home. I highly recommend this lovely home, and am looking forward to returning next year.
We stayed in The Woodlands for 4 days as our college bound son was playing in his last HS "summer baseball" tourney in the Houston area. We did not want to be cooped up in a hotel room so we searched VRBO and found this gem. It worked out perfectly. The home is clean and well appointed. Neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with groceries and eateries nearby. We are normally exhausted after these long and drawn out baseball tourneys but we were actually well rested. Perfect! A pleasant trip to remember.
Thank you Pam! You and your family were perfect guests. We are so glad you were able to have some family time in the midst of the tournaments. We recommend you to any hosts in your future travels! We welcome you and your family back anytime.
Home sweet home.
