Guestbook comments from the manager

The home is absolutely gorgeous, extra clean, comfortable, extraordinary. With 12 women it would be hard to please everyone, but this was over the top.

The kitchen had everything; pots, pans, coffee maker, dishes, and silverware. Everything was provided which made it extremely easy to check in and just start enjoying the beautiful place.

We went to some wineries, as well as Fredericksburg, about an hour away.

I cannot even begin to praise our host Sarah. She was very responsive to our every need. Being in a gated community, we felt very secure. The main problem that we had was that no one wanted to leave! Everyone wants to return.

Amazing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

OMG this place was amazing! Just simply fantastic. The house had everything. We arrived to a basket of complimentary amenities, a box of chocolates, a bottle of wine, and a welcome card. Walking through the house is so dreamy. There were so many little indoor and outdoor sitting areas that made for the best conversations. We stayed here all weekend and never left. A dip in the pool was amazing and refreshing. I think next time we will hire a chef/bartender and get pampered even more!

Car: recommended


The property is across the street from the Lakecliff racquet club with 8 tennis courts, tennis, fitness center, childrens playscape, and pool. The community includes natural beauty spots, hiking trails, and wildlife walks that are yours to explore from this luxury golf course home.

Enjoy a quick  3 minute trip up the street to enjoy the Stone House Vineyard where you will learn about the traditional winemaking techniques.

Drive 10 minutes for fishing, picnics, and boat launch on the Colorado River at the Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area. Or head a little further for a dip in a natural swimming hole amid forested grounds at Krause Springs.

For a true walk on the wild side, drive 9 minutes to the Cypress Valley Zip Line Canopy tours that allow you to fly through the canopy of old-growth cypress trees, some up to 100 feet tall. The world famous Hamilton Pool Preserve is a 30 mile drive away. Or slow the pace with wine tasting at Spicewood Vineyards (a 10-minute drive). On the way to the Spicewood Vineyard, stop the Iron Wolf Ranch and Distillery.

Another fun spot is the El Gaucho Winery (24 minutes away). On your way back from there, stop by Apies Restaurant and Apiary where you will enjoy a unique and exquisite dining experience. If you are feeling adventurous, make your way to the the Crystal Creek Distillery - a moonshine distillery!

Don’t feel like cooking? Nearby restaurants include Smokin G's BBQ (5 miles away) and Opies BBQ Restaurant, the pick-your-meat-from-the-show-pit kind of joint (8 miles). Or for the casual family, head to Lee's Almost By the Lake for burgers, pizza, and a few scoops of their homemade ice cream (16-minute drive).
