What an amazing way to experience TX Hill Country.

  • 5 of 5

It was so cool to get back off the main roads and into the hills. Our kids thought it was such an adventurer yet still convenient to Fredericksburg.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This historical old fort/cabin is beautiful, was very well renovated and provided everything our family of 4 needed. From escaping the hustle and bustle of the big city, available hot tub, fire place and pit, to the wildlife viewing, it was a very enjoyable experience. Centrally located between Llano and Fredericksburg providing easy access to Enchanted Rock and many Wineries. Great location for cyclist to ride very sparsely traveled roads, however within the gates of this properties ranch, it all about seclusion and clear starry skies.

Great place to stay near Fredricksburg

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Martin Fort. Very private and so peaceful out there. The hot tub was perfect at night for a little stargazing. Will definitely be back again.

Perfect hillcounty getaway

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice. Our expectations were exceeded when simply driving down the long, beautiful roads leading to the property. The house was better than described, and had everything we could think of needing. We enjoyed walking around, the fire pit, hot tub, grill, washers, comfy living room furniture, and nice king sized beds. This is our 4th year to rent a house in the hillcountry with out best friends, and this house was hands down the best. We loved reading about the fort's history and wished there was more to know about it! The renovation has done beautifully, and we were sad to have to leave. I have a feeling we will be back. If not to the fort, then definitely to the other rentable house that is on the property as well.

Thank you so much for opening up your place to us and others, Ashley! The ranch is one of a kind, and we feel blessed to have had the opportunity to enjoy it.

Gig 'em!
