Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us had a wonderful stay at the Stone Oak Cottage. We arrived very late on a Friday, but Mike had not only given instructions on how to let ourselves in, but even provided supplies for breakfast! There was gobs of room for everyone, plus it was obvious that thought & care had gone into making a stay comfortable. Will stay here again the next time we're in San Saba.

We arrived on Friday evening late and we were greeted when we got there. Immediately my kids decided they needed to pick which room they would be staying in, just hearing feet run on hard wood floors was amazing. The refrigerator had drinks and breakfast food for the next morning, total surprise. The beds were amazing and very comfortable. Loved having two bathrooms and two living rooms. It was so comfortable, that we decided just to rest on Saturday, till we needed to head out. Look forward to staying again.
