Located 50 minutes from Austin and an hour from San Antonio, our property sits out in the country about the same distance from Lockhart and Luling on FM 86.

Our adorable guest cottage is located behind our house on a couple of acres surrounded by woods and fields. Perfect for 1 or 2 people to enjoy the beauty and solitude that the country offers.

The cottage is 400 sf with a semi-private bedroom with a queen bed, kitchenette, living room, bath, and a covered porch with rocking chairs.

The space
The cottage has WiFi (spotty at times), limited cell phone service, a smart TV and no cable.

While we can't see our neighbor's house, the road in front can be noisy at times.

Park in our driveway and enjoy a short walk to the cottage. You might want to carry a flashlight if coming in late.

No loud music, no parties (without clearing it with us first), no fighting and no drug abuse. In other words, don’t break the tranquility of our oasis.

My husband and I love the country and love the little piece of land we're on. He's a counselor and I'm a business coach by day. On the weekends, we turn into country farmers, growing food, raising chickens, and genuinely enjoying the sky, the trees, and the fresh air. We live with a well-mannered dog and an inside cat.

We are fun introverts who like to watch movies, play board games and cards, and spend plenty of time alone. You can have your space; and have a conversation or two each day,. You decide.

Our motto is "find something you love, put your heart into it, and don't worry what other's say." We are happy to share our place with you.

During your stay

Our guests can enjoy the solitude, yet not feel isolated during their stay. Share a conversation or two with us if you like, but there's no pressure to be social.
