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'!

  • 5 of 5

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

A beautiful piece of peace and nostalgia

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful cottage to get away in the Texas hill country! The serenity and peace you feel waking up to the birds chirping and the cattle around getting the morning hay while you sit on the porch swing drinking coffee is ideal. The house is appointed with thoughtful detail in antique decor and in accommodations. The hosts are kind and clearly want you to have an enjoyable experience. The refrigerator is stocked with beverages, yogurt, fruits, snacks. Baked goods and coffee it's all there. The location is near to much that the area has to offer. The historic town of Groene, water activities on the river, Hollow Tree Ranch for horseback riding, Natural Bridge Caverns and all of its offerings. I'm so happy I had the opportunity to stay in this perfect spot and enjoy being at the cottage as well as doing all the fun things nearby. Beverly, thank you so much for a wonderful place to visit I will love to stay here again!
