I first stayed here over the Thanksgiving Holiday. I wanted a quiet and peaceful place to relax after visiting relatives in nearby Austin. I loved this place. It was perfect for me... and I could only imagine how romantic it would be to be here with a partner, or just bringing my best friend (as she likes a peaceful environment to sit and read... as much as I like exploring and taking pictures). My room was above the main house and had a wonderous heart shaped tub (later to find out that all the cottages did), a fireplace, and a small kitchenette, with what I called the pink room attached-with plenty of space for a family. I didn't take a picture of my bed area, which was an old fashioned bed that did set high, and I liked it since I am tall.... but I did picture from the view of the bed (where I sat and read a lot). I added pictures of some other cottages as I was able to tour between people arriving. I also downloaded a few pictures from the property. A beautiful setting for a wedding, which I understand they do a lot of. I love staying at bed and breakfasts... and in reading other's reviews about the breakfast, it is simple and basic... but since I don't really eat breakfast it was perfect for me (and I wasn't there for the food). I liked having the kitchenette to bring home left-overs from local restaurants for dinner. This location is located near the quant artist town of Wimberley, about 40 minutes from Austin. While I was there it rained a little and snowed a little, which sounded lovely on the roof. There are T.V.'s in the rooms, but I don't watch when I am on vacation, as I am there to get away from everything. The animals were fun to visit and the Innkeeper and Owner, Sherry, informed me that most of her animals were rescued (which I support wholeheartedly). There are also cats and dogs on the property. Sherry also gives the most amazing massages... she is good. They do have a pool, but at that time of the year I was there, it was too cold. I imagine it is wonderful during the summer. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quant and quiet escape. In fact, I just called them yesterday to find out about availability for the Christmas Holiday this year. If you go and get a room with a small refrigerator, then just bring your own snacks/drinks.. a few good books to read and a camera to take some pictures as you explore the beautiful grounds.
