Charming ranch cottage just 20 minutes from Fredericksburg is a relaxing getaway from the city. Cook in the full kitchen, build a fire in the wood stove, relax in the hot tub, walk by the creek, or read a book in hammock on the wraparound porch.

The space
We call this cottage The Foreman because it is laid out like a ranch foreman house. It's furnished with rustic elegance. The enclosed porch has a hot tub and charming wicker seating area. We keep binoculars handy so you can identify the many species of birds and small animals you may encounter.

Guest access
Guests have private access to the whole house and the fenced yard. Guest share access to an outdoor fire pit, world class smoker, trail to the creek, and the full 10 acres of surrounding land.

Other things to note
There is no cell reception for most carriers, so you may want to enable wifi calling for connectivity. The TV setup comes with an HDMI connection, so you can hook up a laptop or gaming system, but the basic internet service is via satellite, so it isn't suitable for high band width activities. The fenced yard makes this an inviting place for your dog, who is welcome.

Doss, Texas, United States

Doss Valley was settled by German pioneers in the mid 1800's, and their descendants still ranch this land today. Sheep ranching is the main industry, thought some ranchers have cattle. Doss is white-tail deer country, and you'll see them at dawn and dusk. Turkeys roost by the creek.

While I spend some of my time in Houston, my heart is in the Texas hill country. My husband I love our ranch near Fredericksburg, where we raise bees and sheep on the property adjacent to the rentals. We have two quarter horses, two dogs, six grown children, and fourteen grandchildren, a number I seem to be frequently updating. We go out dancing every week. I love to sit on the back porch with a cup of tea and watch the bees buzzing in the flowers. Living life without regrets involves making choices. At the end of life I don't think we'll regret the choices we made, we'll regret the choices we didn't have the guts to make. To learn more about how I think about the world, find me on social media, where there are public links to my blog Deborah's Thought Garden. I also write a blog for people who are caregivers of the terminally ill. That site is called Bossy Spa.

During your stay
The owners live on an adjacent property during the weekend. We sometimes stop by to say hello, but generally leave you to yourselves.

There is a second house available for rental near this one on the property, so you may see guests there. Renting both houses can be a nice setup for two couples.
