We are a lively couple who decided to start our guest house in the home next to ours. We had the idea one night and two months later we opened for business. We spend a majority of our time away from our normal job working on the ranch and enjoying the peace and quiet of the country. We will always respect your privacy; however, if you want to chat and have a drink together we would love to do so. If you ever need anything, please let us know.
Bonnie has deep roots in the San Marcos/Kyle area, and this property has been in her family for more than 4 generations. She is a graduate of Southwest Texas University, now Texas State, and majored in Sociology. She loves to get to know people, and you will love talking to her. She has spent time in Germany and loves to work on her Deustch when she has a chance.
Andrew is originally from Fredericksburg, TX and found himself in the Kyle area after leaving the active duty Army in 2004. He is a graduate of Texas Tech and majored in Business. He shares Bonnie's passion and love for the land and calls the ranch his 'happy place.' You will often see him on the tractor and working on the property. He is also a people person and can grill the best steaks in Texas. Andrew also has a daughter that you may see. Natalie is the light of our lives and she loves her home with us on the ranch.
We would love to share our little piece of happiness with you! Come join us on the ranch and we guarantee you will want to stay here again and again.
The Ranch and H Heart - The ranch is a small piece of what it used to be. All of the area around us and even up to Roland Lane was owned by several sides of the family (Hughson, Rowland [Roland], and Conway). Through the generations the land was swapped, split, or sold leaving us with this 125 acre track that we call home. We hope to continue the tradition and pass it on to a 5th generation in the future.
The name “H Heart” comes from the family brand. Cecil Hughson, Bonnie’s great-grandfather known by her as “Pop,” was a Kyle area cattleman for many years. The love for the land, farming, and ranching, continued in the Hughson blood line. Bonnie’s grandfather, Papa, also raised cattle. He was known in the local area for another reason; baseball. “Tex” Hughson pitched for the University of Texas at Austin and the Boston Red Sox in the 1940s. Stanley, Bonnie's father, followed in the family footsteps. He farmed this land and raised cattle and goats on it until his death in 2009.
As we mentioned above, the porches are amazing and we enjoy them as much as we can. Our past guests have really enjoyed them as well. Although we are close to the city, if you are in the back yard you would never know it. The property just has a great, peaceful, calming ability that can't be explained. You have to experience it to understand!
This was a great place for our family to be together during our son's wedding. So close to the venue and convenient to San Marcos locations. Plenty of room for us all to visit and prepare for everything.
Being at the H Heart in Kyle Texas was like being at home...only BETTER! Everything was neat, clean and comfortable. We could not have asked for better accommodations. We were "in the country" away from noise and traffic but within 15 minutes of just about any of the city amenities that one could ask for. Sitting on the back porch enjoying the quiet evenings and view was right up our alley. Being within 5 minutes of the Old Texas Town for our wedding festivities was a definite bonus! It made everything so convenient. The Cox family is very nice and were helpful in arranging our plans for the visit. Andrew was quick to respond to any messages/questions we had. Thanks Cox family!!
They house was very nice and clean!
Amazing backyard view of the river.
The house had everything we needed.
We rented this house for 2 nights when our daughter got married at Texas Old Town. It's less than 5 minutes from the venue which proved very convenient for us all weekend. We were very comfortable. Everything was spotless and we had everything we needed. Thank you so much!
My bridesmaids and myself stayed at the heart house the day before my wedding. We got married at Texas Old Town so the home was close to the venue. My parents were in town from CO so this was nice for them to stay at the night of the wedding instead of a hotel. The home is very comfortable and plenty of room for family. We were hoping to have a dinner here the night before but ended up going out to dinner but would have had enough room if we ended up doing it. The beds were comfy and clean. A perfect get away home or place to enjoy before the wedding
My husband and I got ready at Texas Old Town in Kyle and having this place was awesome! Not only did we have a great place for the girls to get ready at, but we also had a place to keep food for the wedding in the full fridge and it was very convenient to be right next to the venue when we had to run up there for something real quick.
This is a cute and comfortable little house and we really enjoyed our stay there! Thank you!
