You will have a perfect stay at the Artist's Nest! Connie will cater to all your needs with lots of extra special touches. Connie even bought a blackout curtain to make sure I could get a good night's sleep and I did. The location is within easy walking distance of the best things in Blanco: The river and state park, restaurants, and shops. The house is quiet, private, and an excellent place to unwind. We can't wait to return!

The nest was great. Connie had fresh cookies and farm fresh eggs for us. Blanco was a nice little town with a great BBQ joint nearby.

My husband, Stan and I have lived in Blanco for 7 years. We love the small-town charm and beauty of the hill country. We enjoy the outdoors, music and art. Stan loves photography and fly fishing. I enjoy creating art and practice tai chi. We look forward to sharing this wonderful community with you.
