About the property

The Carriage House is a converted Barn located in the owners gated compound. The barn was previously used to stable horses and to store carriages for the family. The entire house has been recently redecorated. The owners are Antique dealers and travel to France and England to shop for their business.

The home is furnished with European Antiques with modern touches. Guests love the charm and character of the home and garden. The garden is enclosed by a fence with antique gates from Europe. It has seating around a gas fire pit, tables and chairs for outside dinning, umbrellas, garden art from Europe, two covered porches and a large deck with a view of the Guadalupe river. The river is a short walk down the hill to a picturesque walking park along with huge cypress trees lining the river. River equipment is available to rent near you can bring your own and enjoy the river.

The Carriage House features an open concept that includes the living room, dining area and kitchen. It is very private and the design of tall french entry doors and a wall of window to the garden allows exquisite light into the house.

Flat screen televisions in the living room and the master bedroom. Free Wi-Fi is provided for our guests.

This a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful Hill Country and visit places like Comfort, Fredericksburg, Bandera and Hunt. All a short drive. Great restaurants located in Kerrville (5 minutes to downtown) and other easily driveable areas.

There is a full kitchen with all appliances including a coffee maker. The refrigerator has an ice-maker.

If you are looking for a romantic weekend away, a girls get-a-way, a family Hill Country Adventure or possibly a small wedding have found a place that will create special memories for you and your loved ones.

I cannot say enough good things about this property. it was, in a word, perfect. Beautiful inside and out with a private entrance and a very secluded feel even though the homeowners are fairly close. We will be staying here every time we come to Schreiner University for a visit. Cannot wait to stay here again! Thanks for the hospitality Ray.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is beautiful and most charming. The photos accurately represent this unique property. You can see the river from the back porch. Ray and Carolyn are equally charming and available yet unintrusive respecting our privacy. Would definitely stay here again.

Hill Country Getway

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a scenic getaway with elegant surrounding, this is the place for YOU. Beautiful back yard with seating for meals or fire pit and chairs for watching beautiful sunsets. Don't be surprised if a white tail deer becomes your new friend.

Home is filled with English and French antiques. Sleeps 4 easily. This little retreat is accessible to Kerrville as well as a short drive to Fredericksburg, Comfort, Boerne, and Stonewall. Also short driving distance to over 20 wineries. Our host were gracious, helpful, informative, and couldn't have been nicer. Thank you Carolyn and Ray for a special Christmas.
