What makes this house unique

June Wedding Stay in Awesome Texas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing with its country setting and peaceful serenity. We needed a place to stay for 4 days during my daughters wedding in Dripping Springs and this made our trip so much better. Pride in ownership definitely shows in this home. We spent our mornings and evenings on the wrap around porch engaging in conversation and catching up on old times. The creek was so peaceful and my daughters enjoyed sitting in the current and enjoying the sunshine. I would definitely stay here again if I ever get back to Texas. Thanks for sharing your home!!

Amazing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable and well appointed. The property was quiet and peaceful. Everything was very well maintained. We really enjoyed relaxing on the porch with great hill country views. The extra large farm table in the dinning room was great to gather around. We were in the area for a family wedding. We had to drive into downtown Austin several times and it worked out fine. Wished we could have stayed longer and would definitely recommend this property!

Daughter's wedding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last April during my daughter's wedding at a nearby venue. When I rented the place, I had no idea that 1) I was home away from home 2) so convenient to the wedding venue which came in handy during rehearsal and after the wedding late at night. I only wish we could have had more time to explore the property and take in the beauty that it has to offer. Definitely will be back!

Wonder relaxing stay in the country

  • 5 of 5

Had a family wedding nearby and stayed at the Eagles Nest with kids, siblings, and mom. All of us were easily able to get ready for the wedding and enjoyed playing cards on the porch.

Beautiful home, gorgeous creek

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home with attention to detail. Very hospitable and easy to entertain day-visits from Austin-area family. The spring fed creek is wonderful and kept our 4 boys entertained for many many hours with no reason for me to worry about them drowning (it's shallow).

The boys also explored the "mountain" above the home and came back with the scratches and stories that indicate a wonderful time spent being boys with wild imaginations.

The home is very comfortable, and though all 3 upstairs bedrooms would have been easy for our children to sleep in, after the first night, they chose to sleep on the couches and rug in the living room! No monsters up there, more a reflection of the kids being young and in an unfamiliar place. (My husband and I slept in the downstairs bedroom)

The kitchen is organized by a family that knows the essentials necessary to run what feels like a small-catering operation in feeding a larger than typical family.

The TV is "hidden" and I am pleased it is not the focal point of the living room, yet when when it was time to play card games with adult family, we easily placated the kids with a family friendly DVD and enjoyed catching up with family while the kids passed out during the movie.

We also enjoyed visiting Hamilton Pool and Milton Reimer's Ranch (both Travis County Parks, so you pay for one and you get the other free on the same day). Loved that this home is very convenient to Hamilton Pool Road and this day trip was easy and very very worth the $15 (Hamilton Pool admission).

We hope to return. Well, really, we hope to one day own something like this as well! We appreciate the love and time and attention this land has required from the owners and their family.
