Nice, secluded, cozy.
The weather turned cold unexpectedly when we arrived, but the house has a fireplace heater that heated the home wonderfully. Hearing the wind in the trees through the night adds to the peaceful feel of the place.
Very quite and peaceful.
Gosling's nest ranch cottage was just what we wanted. We both have stressful jobs and just wanted to get away. The owner met us at the gate and showed us the land and then took us to the cottage and help us get settled in. She told us we have the run of the ranch and if we need something she was just a call away. Then she said they would leave us alone. This was a great place. Cottage was very clean and organized. It is just the right size. There was at least 3 ponds on the property that had fish in them if you want to fish. The Oak trees around the cottage were huge. They are estimated to be around 400 to 500 years old. Me and my wife loved it. Jerry and Sheryl Bearden 03/11/2017
We really are glad you enjoyed your stay enough to take time out to write about your stay! It helps us remember why we love it so much out here too!
We hope to see you again !

Most guests come to the ranch to wind down, watch the sunsets with a glass of wine. Relax and Romance Texas style!
The number one reason tourists come is to visit this area would be to see the "Painted churches" . They are historic churches built in the 1800's by Germans and Czech people. The church settings are rural with rolling hills and cattle and all the churches are worshipped in today. Hand painted inside with murals and gold painted altars. Very European with the first church 8 miles from the ranch. Guests can take a formal tour or go see them by themselves. I can give you a county map and you can go at your own pace. Another reason to come to our area is to go to the Shiner brewery for a free tour and free samples of new flavors of beer. The brewery is 15 miles from my cottages.
