Guestbook comments from the owner

Good Morning,


I wanted to personally say that we had an amazing time on your property. All of my party enjoyed the dogs…I think one person even “adopted” them for the duration of our stay.

A Gem Out Yonder

  • 5 of 5

"Comfort, quiet, clean, secure, relaxing " best describes this property. This house is the best example of the perfect "home away" as the kitchen is well equipped , comfy beds and furnishings and strong wifi. . Dining, food markets, gas stations are about ten miles away ... so come prepared. The historic towns of Lochart and San Marcos were our favorite destinations.

We Have Already Booked Our Year 4 Visit in 2018

  • 5 of 5

Yes, the listing description is correct, and the home is clean and well maintained ... with excellent "customer service" by the owner (however, we don't feel like a "customer" ... more like guests and friends). Robert and Britney are the best ... always friendly and helpful. We love the dogs who wait for a pat, feeding the chickens, ducks, horses and donkey (only if you want to, and we do).

As "city folk" Bostonians going to this ranch in Lockhart TX, we look forward to our visit each year; and, March of 2018 will be our 4th year. Peaceful, big sky country, and a great starting point to drive to Austin, San Antonio, and Hill Country wineries and Fredericksburg ... maybe Mustang Is south of Houston for an overnight. Favorite restaurant is Saltgrass in San Marcos on the deck over the river.

Farm fresh eggs with bright yellow yokes are a bonus; and, Lockhart is the BBQ capital of TX ... but Robert's brisket is the best!

This property, and the owners have become a special part of our lives ... wish we were there right now, but will need to wait until next March.

PS - Did I mention the baby chicks and ducks they helped our Austin granddaughters hold? Very special!

Felt like home and treated like family.

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely wonderful place with the best people. Robert & Brittney made our stay so enjoyable. Was welcomed with a meat & cheese tray, bottle of wine , farm fresh eggs, homemade bread and some of Robert's awesome brisket. Later in our stay Brittney brought over our supper for the evening. We had made plans to take several day trips but were so satisfied just being at the house we mostly just stayed there. Did make it into Lockhart and Black,'s BBQ that is

delicious. Highly recommend going there.Thank you Wagners for making our first stay of this kind in Texas a huge success.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay with the dogs, chickens, cows, horses, donkey and ram. We were treated royally with snacks, water, and fresh eggs. We also had a wonderful meal of brisket cooked by Robert which was a special treat. One day Britany made us fresh bread. We have never had such treatment in the other rentals we have stayed in. We hope to come back again.
