About the property
- House2800 sqft

- Minimum Stay3 nights
3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6
Under new management that attends to every small detail, our vacation home sits on just over ten acres of land in the heart of beautiful Texas Hill Country. Removed from the sound and light of the city and even separated from the small road you arrive on by a charming long driveway, this three bed, two full bath home sleeps 6 comfortably.
While we do enjoy all the luxuries that come with electricity, the property is otherwise off the grid. Rainwater easily supports the home and is so pleasant - not salty, hard or full of heavy metals like the tap we are used to. Extra bonus is your hair and skin will be super soft! The pool and hot tub are picturesque, set in a natural stone deck that feels like a simple extension of the surrounding countryside. Both are serviced weekly and maintained to the highest standard.
The outside covered pavilion is complete with flat screen television, fireplace, seating and dining area. Inside you will find all of the conveniences - powerful central A/C, washer and dryer, and ultra fast wireless internet, to name a few. The master bedroom has a king bed and private bath, and there are queen beds in each of the other two bedrooms.
True appreciation of this little part of the world is inevitable with the amazing sunsets overlooking the hill country, and all of the bright stars that blanket the night sky. Our homestead has a storied history, including visits by President LBJ when only the outdoor pavilion and hunting lodge stood on the grounds (built in the 1920s and 1940s, respectively).
The property has since undergone a face lift with an extensive renovation and addition in 1997. It is a truly special place, surrounded by untouched land. You will hear birds singing, glimpse white tail deer foraging and truly reconnect with nature, achieving a relaxed mindfulness that will leave you floating all the way home.

this is the place to stay in TEXAS HILL COUNTRY
What can I say but this is the home to rent and make your Headquarters for your visit to Hill Country! The home is high atop a hill in the Sunset Canyon area, one of the nicest sections of Dripping Springs, or Dripp'in if you live in the area.
The house is roomy, nicely decorated, well appointed, clean, quite, lot's of wild life to enjoy!
The Master suite and bath are huge and the bed is to die for. My husband and I are going to buy this same mattress for our home. Best sleep we have had in awhile
There are books for reading and to learn about local places to see and go, games, pool floats, padded patio furniture, wood for the fireplaces these folks thought of it all.
And you are not far off Hwy 290 which is convenient when setting out for those day trips across Hill Country.
You are close to the best cities and places to eat and party in Hill Country. Nutty Browns, Salt Lick BBQ, The Oasis, Oak Creek Cafe (Dripping Springs) Wineries and of course Austin, Luckenbach Frederickberg and if you have the time a day trip to San Antonio, maybe an hour away!
Grocery and convenience stores, (farmers market in the summer months), all close by.
My only complaint is..............we sould not stay longer ;)
We will be back in the near future, and next time I plan to take more time to relax and enjoy the countryside instead of running around to wedding events!
And the owners are wonderful. They are quick to respond, and pleasant!
One more comment, this is the 2nd home we have rented from HomeAway. The last one was in Tombstone, AZ. It too was a fantastic home to rent. HomeAway is our newest Travel Accomodations website!
I could go on, but you might miss an opportunity to rent this wonderful retreat!
Quiet and secluded with easy access to the hill country
Loved every minute of our stay. Only had one minor issue with water pressure that was dealt with immediately. Can’t stress enough how nice this house and amenities were during our stay.
Perfect for a Texas Spring Getaway
My husband and I get away every year with friends. This Hill Country retreat ticked all the boxes. Private but close to Austin and easy, Texas blue bonnet-speckled drives to other Hill Country destinations (don't miss Johnson City!), wineries, distilleries, shopping, great bar-b-que (Salt Lick, another not to miss). Dripping Springs has some great local spots (nod to Thyme & Dough coffee and Suds Monkey Brewery which is walkable distance) The house is warm, inviting and comfortable for a party of six. The outdoor "living room" and fireplace is the perfect spot to watch the sun go down and the stars come out, or to just sit and enjoy each other's company. The hot tub and pool were a super bonus. The hot tub got more use due to cooler Spring temps earlier in the week, but the pool was lovely when the temps hit the 80s. Maria, the caretaker, and Jennifer, the owner were welcoming and attentive to our every need. We hope to be back to visit again.
very nice location but need some updates
The house, the pool and the view are perfect for a stay in the hill country.
On the downside, we were not able to make the spa work, we tried to contact the owner, left a voicemail but no call back. The instructions that can be found in the house need some updates. We called the "property manager" as per the instructions and were told they stopped working for the owner 18 months ago. At that level of price, we expect a better service.
Once again had a wonderful time. We've been coming to this place for 8 years and we never tire of it. One new experience was to book a massage out on the patio under the trees. Maria was great - you can get the contact info from the owner.
We'll be back- again, and again.
We loved everything about it
We loved the setting, the view, the pool and the house. It couldn't have been a more wonderful week-end.
Several breweries, wineries and even two vodka distilleries are within a 10 minute drive! Check out Jester King Brewery and grab a pizza at Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza - excellent! Other breweries include Twisted X, Thirsty Planet, Last Stand Brewing. Distilleries: Deep Eddy Vodka, Dripping Springs Vodka Wineries: Bells Springs, Solaro Estate, Driftwood Estate, Duchman Family Winery, Fall Creek Vineyards, Wimberley Valley Winery.
