Two of my college roommates and I stayed in the upstairs, 2 bedroom guest house. The living room has a couch large enough to sleep on.
There was a stocked kitchen (including plates, glasses, microwave, toaster and full sized fridge), beautiful wood floors, 3 tvs, nice sized bathroom with great toiletries, and a balcony with grill. There is also a large deck in the middle of the property as well as trees and benches.
The owner/manager, Ralph, was super friendly and helpful and even brought us a dozen eggs from his chickens. This is a great place to stay to hit the 290 wine trail.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We let our customers decide whether they want to do nothing, or savor all the things Blanco & the Texas Hill Country have to offer. With that said we are an 80 year old motel, with rooms that have been remodeled over the last few years. All this to give our customers, and future friends, a charming "Hill Country" Experience! Being (we believe the motel was built in1932) we are 80 years old; we are the oldest lodging in Blanco County. Also, we are one of the oldest lodging establishments in the hill country. It was founded by Mary Lester as the Lester Courts when the State & Federal government was developing our state park system and when Route Number 66 was developed. No, not US Route 66, we think it was a state highway before it became US 281. So along with the road and the park here Mrs. Lester built the Lester courts. Wanting to slow down the frenzied pace of corporate life, my wife and I jumped at the chance to live in the hill country, and run a quaint little inn. As our retirement project we have had fun restoring the motel to a quaint "Boutique Motel" and meet people and new friends from all over the world. Ask us about some fresh eggs or soon our "Blanco County Honey!" ... more less
