Why Terri & Dana Garrett chose Texas

We built this home as a mother-in -law home and guest house, but have recently decided to share it with more travelers than just relatives.

What makes this cottage unique

Bass, crappie & perch stocked in fishing pond with over 300 ducks, geese, peacocks, guineas and chickens, this is a great place to relax and enjoy nature at its best.

Peaceful and fun for the kids!

  • 5 of 5

We did not want to leave! We had the best time! It was so peaceful and the kids loved it! They woke up every morning wanting to ride the tire swing and play in the water. Our lab loved it too! I will highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing vacation! I think the best part about it is that you can still get to any major city if you wanted to venture out, but you completely don't have to! This property itself is stunning and so perfect! Plenty to do every day! Plenty of relaxation and family time! Thank you for the memories and beautiful pictures!

Relaxing country home

  • 5 of 5

Although we had rain the entire trip, the three patios/porches allowed us to still enjoy this great country property. The house was clean, comfortable and well stocked.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Guesthouse! Our 10 year old grandson and our 2 year old granddaughter loved the creek. It was so shady and pleasant down there. Thanks for the lawn chairs because I really enjoyed sitting and watching them play. The house was very cool (great air conditioning) and had everything we needed. Thanks for a great vaca!

So Relaxing..............

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband, daughter and son-in-law) were at the Guest House July 7, 2016 until July 10, 2016. Our time there was truly relaxing. The house is clean and you will find everything you need to fix meals if you wish. We did enjoy bar-b-que at one of the great places in Lockhart and also toured the old county jail and clock museum, both of which are interesting. We had a great time and do hope that we will be able to visit again.
