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.

Quiet place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. My grandchildren loved visiting the horses and cows and playing with the puppies. It was so nice to have someplace quiet to come home to after our day trips to San Antonio, Waco and Austin. The house had everything we needed for the week and the homemade bread, jam, fresh eggs and brisket were an added bonus. Thank you for sharing your ranch!

Relaxing, peaceful and really charming owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast at your ranch house. Our plans changed a lot when I broke my arm a couple of days before arriving. I was forced to relax in your wonderful house--my husband had really wanted just to relax anyway. Thank goodness the puppies kept the grandkids entertained outside and a few different games kept them entertained inside.

The bread and jam was a big hit with everyone. My husband enjoyed the wine--on my pain meds I did not get to help him. Especially thanks for a few extra eggs after I was trying to scramble eggs by myself and knocked the bowl on the floor. I was banished from the kitchen.

We all are hoping to make plans to come again someday. The grand kids are even going to try and talk their parent into visiting one day.

Thanks for making the last weekend with the kids so wonderful

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words Virginia. Having guests as wonderful as you all were makes it all worth while. You will be in my prayers. Best wishes to you and Dave and the Grand kids. Robert

Close Up of Farm Life

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts and a real opportunity to see farm life close up. Greeted with farm fresh eggs, smoked brisket, and snacks in the refrigerator and a fresh baked loaf of bread on the counter. Got to feed the chickens, ducks and cows and enjoyed the company of the friendly dogs that like to spend time resting under the shade of the porch. Our time there was a mini family reunion and all three generations in attendance enjoyed it fully. Short run to Hill Coutry, Austin, and of course the BBQ capital of the world Lockhart. Hated to leave but even great vacations have to eventually end. Would recommend to any that would find relaxation in the country desirable.

This was a great stay for our family and we loved every bit of thestay

  • 5 of 5

Robert's family were the best hosts ever. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable, be it the delightful fresh bake or fresh garden vegetables or just the warmth of talking to us and enquirinf about the stay.

The place is in the middle of a country with all amenities which made it so very peaceful. Sitting outside at the porch in the night and having a clear look into the skies was just a breathtaking one for me.

We felt safe at this beautiful home, all cooking utensils, towels etc were provided and if good quality. I hope I could go back soon!!!

Marvelous place, gentle hosts!

A truly family friendly place

Loved this home and felt right at home when we got there. My daughter loved the swing and I was impressed that they kept a good selection of games and toys for kids. Very comfortable and roomy home. Hosts are wonderful.
