The farm house has a queen bed, clawfoot tub and shower. The kitchen has a microwave, small refrigerator, coffeemaker and toaster. Your hosts leave a continental breakfast. Relaxing on the porch you never know what kind of wildlife or birds you may see so bring some binoculars!!
Really nice & relaxing place for two.
Perfect little place for two! Lots of history and family items displayed for all to enjoy. The baked goodies were delicious and the items in the fridge were very much appreciated!
Everything has been thought of, and we couldn’t have asked for more.
If we are blessed to visit the area again, we would not hesitate to visit Gasthaus Mayer again!
The only things that prevent a 5 star rating was The fact that we were not allowed to wander about a little bit more. For instance to look at the barn, historic rock wall & the horses.
Also the nearby busy road that did cause some loss of peace.
Thanks for sharing your place with us!

Very nice and accommodating
Home was nicely decorated and clean. The hosts were very accommodating to our needs. Overall great experience.
Relaxation at the finest.
We loved the cabin. Everything was clean, cute comfy. Front porch was perfect for morning coffee and evening swinging...
Nice quiet place to relax, a lot of history....highly recommended.
Very nice cottage. More than enough space in all rooms but I loved sitting on the porch. Very clean and lots of choices for breakfast and snacks.
Great place to 'get away'!
This is such a great place to stay! I loved being 'out in the country'. Everything was well maintained and clean. We grilled out under the shade tree and enjoyed song birds and hummingbirds. All the old history of the house was very interesting. The kitchen had everything we needed and there were plenty of continental breakfast goodies for us to enjoy during our stay. Most of Saturday was spent visiting some of the hill country towns. Our favorite experience was touring the Cave Without a Name near Boerne, TX. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Jackie
Thank you again & so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It's very much appreciated. Hope you're able to visit again!
