Hosts Karen and Greg offer this quiet retreat in the Texas hill country wine region. Expansive hillside view encompasses LBJ Ranch and well beyond. Explore nearby wineries and numerous other popular attractions. Secluded guest porch offers private outdoor space, shared only with birds and other wildlife. A terrific base camp for escaping: offers great cycling, bird watching, reading, crafting. An avid road cyclist, host Greg loves sharing his knowledge of the region's roads with other cyclists.

The space
Best for those seeking quiet lodging from which to explore the Texas 290 Wine Trail region. We cater to daytime explorers looking for calm evenings in. We also welcome those looking to sit still in the countryside. Closer to both Austin and San Antonio, visitors here may avoid the Fredericksburg crowds and traffic while enjoying the country air. This lodging is not a good choice for those seeking on-the-town nightlife, nor for those wanting to make their own noise.

Guest access
Two-bedroom guest house is completely separate from hosts' main house, though it sits nearby. The two homes share a courtyard/driveway. Guest house's back porch offers a heavily shaded view to the valley and is very substantially discrete from the shared areas. Find lounge chair seating here for relaxed wildlife watching, and a small table for al fresco picnicking. During nice weather, this back porch functions as a third (outdoor) room. When the weather is less temperate, guests may simply open their window shades and enjoy their ostensible, climate-controlled wildlife blind.

Other things to note
Strict neighborhood rules prohibit guest fires and burning, including barbecues, grills, and fire pits. This space does not have a common living area, it features two bedrooms and two separate bathrooms connected by an entry hall. Each bedroom has its own door access to the back porch area. With respect to the surrounding area, wine region restaurants and grocery stores may be growing in number, but few are open 24/7. The guest house features a small refrigerator and microwave. While it is by no means a cook's kitchen, these amenities are a big step up from tent camping. We provide coffee and tea, microwave oatmeal and popcorn, as well as dishes and linens.

Fredericksburg, Texas, United States

Quiet residential neighborhood with large lots. Fires and burning not allowed. Wine trail wineries are a short drive away. Find a small grocery in nearby Stonewall (five miles away, closed Sundays). Wine region restaurants nearby too, but few are open seven days so we recommend that guests do some prior planning and research for evening meals. For restaurants/groceries open daily, drive twenty minutes to Fredericksburg (to the west) and Johnson City (to the east). Also, Blanco, Texas is only a slightly further drive. Swim in the LBJ Park pool during the summer, just ten minutes away by car.
