I was blown away at this home! It was PERFECT for the peaceful, relaxing vacation I needed. The house was immaculate! The owners have done and incredible job in decorating, creating an environment of peace and encouragement. If you need to get to more "civilization", Dripping Springs is a few minutes up the road and Austin is a very short drive as well.

Thank you to the hosts as well! They are very kind and compassionate people who take pride in their home and care for their guests.

I will definitely be returning!

The Driftwood Farmhouse was absolutely perfect for our family to all be together for a long wedding weekend. We were able to take in the Driftwood Estate Winery and the wedding venue was literally down the road. Our granddaughter loved the trampoline and the wide open spaces to play and explore. She especially loved the deer that ran by one early morning in the backyard. We could not have ask for a better experience. Thanks for making our stay so great.
