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!

Very quiet and safe

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here the last two weeks of Nov. 2017. This is definitely 'out in the country' which we enjoyed. Very peaceful, several friendly dogs and cats running around. It is easy to get to the city or local attractions from here. Be sure to go into Lockart for barbeque.

Keep in mind that it is a farmhouse and that the furniture is older.

Robert and his family were wonderful to work with. They responded to every question or concern immediately. They even sent over some home made meals for us (which were delicious). Robert's home made bread is the best!

A charming country experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were so very blessed by our time near Lockhart. Robert was a kind and thoughtful host, there when needed but allowing us our space. The house was more than we had hoped for and perfectly suited for our 3 year old and four month old girls. This being somewhat of a working vacation and the weather turning cold and wet for a couple days, we had no issues spending some days inside and there was plenty of room and entertainment to go around. I would highly recommend it for a small family or two couples if you're willing to share common space. The bathrooms are with each bedroom with bedroom #1 having the bathroom connected and bedroom #2 having it's bathroom right outside the bedroom door near the kitchen. Full washer and dryer setup with plenty of space in the fridge and freezer as well. TV and WiFi internet worked great and were easy to use. The porch and yard spaces are very nice and worked great for letting our little person be outside! The back yard is actually fenced from the patio so that was good for Mommy's peace of mind :) The geographical location is quite pleasant. We traveled to both San Marcos and Kyle more than once and the 15-20 mile distance goes easily. The location is not difficult to find and the address plugs directly into Google Maps, although the location was slightly off by a couple hundred yards. Suffice to say, we're trying to come up with more excuses to be in the Lockhart area in the future!

So so lovely!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing we noticed when we got out of the car was how quiet it was! After leaving the city it was so wonderful to hear nothing! Robert and Denise were fabulous hosts, attentive, hospitable and welcoming. There were amazing chicken wings awaiting us when we arrived, and the house was well stocked with all the essentials we could have required, including a laundry. The beds were comfortable and the living areas felt like a home. We enjoyed getting to know their dogs, but the fenced area at the back of the house had a lovely sitting area that was dog-free and wonderful in the morning sunshine. We took a walk on the property one morning with Robert’s directions which was lovely.

Thanks so much Robert and Denise! We had such a lovely time on your ranch!

Slice of TX hospitality in Lockhart

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in Lockhart. Accommodations have room to settle in and great hosts. They brought over meatloaf, homemade bread, bottle of red, and fresh eggs the first night of our stay and provided us a F1 program when they knew we were attending the race. Super friendly dogs that greeted us every morning and when we came thru the entrance gate. Great location to enjoy TX BBQ capital and EZ drive to F1 track.

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.
