About Zena Howe
My husband and I found perfect property for us to retired right here in heart of wine country Central Texas. He's retired commercial pilot and I also retired from major airline. I resumed my art career full time. After building our house we decided to share our piece of heaven with travelers seeking peace and quiet. If you enjoy art this is your place. You can see how artwork is being born or even to learn something new. I was born in Czech Republic and still very fluent in Czech language. So you may even practice your Czech and stumble on dumplings or real kolache!
Zena Howe purchased this Guest House in 2005
Why Zena Howe chose Johnson City
Views, Art area, stars at night, Our property is perfect location for easy access to town and surrounding wineries. You are only 8 minutes drive from town square, one hour from Austin and little over one hour from San Antonio and let's not forget 35 minute ride to Fredericksburg. Our views are awesome being on the hill that expands them to never ending 360.
What makes this Guest House unique
Star gazing and access to art gallery You will have total privacy. Distance between the apartment and main house is approximately 400 yards. Use of the apartment comes with private art gallery where you can linger with a glass of wine and enjoy my art. Front of the apartment is sprawling wooden deck 40 feet by 12 feet that cantilevers over the hill with breathtaking views. Be prepare to alter your plans and just to decide to stay! If you like to take morning or evening walk you have 30 acres to explore. My personal favorite is sunrise and sunsets!

Beyond our wildest dreams!!
From before we arrived, Zena was attentive and helpful. She helped make our anniversary trip amazing! Zena and E.J. were the perfect hosts. The property was perfect, every detail and more was considered and attended to. We are already planning a return trip!
Beautiful property in the Texas Hill country, great place to relax with a glass of wine in the evening and a great place for a cup of coffee to watch the sun come up in the morning and watch the wildlife, very peaceful and quiet.
One Word - PERFECT
I feel like I just returned from Shangri-La. The property is located in a way that makes you feel very secluded. However, it is close to so many different choices of things to do. You are minutes from Johnson City, Fredericksburg, Perdenales Falls and more. However, you may find it difficult leave the quiet and restful tranquility of this guest house.
The views from the patio are indescribably beautiful from the colorful sunrises to the deer playing in the valley below. At night go to the entry side of the building and see stars in a way you cannot see in populated areas.
Zena and E.J. are some of the best hosts we have encountered in our travels. They are very accommodating and interested in you and making sure your stay is perfect. WE WILL BE BACK!
It was a great experience. Great people....loved the scenery and privacy.
I'm reluctant to write my glowing review of this property. Kinda want to keep it a secret. Zena and her husband have created an oasis in the Hill Country. The kitchen is very well appointed, the bed and bedroom are comfortable, and bathroom isn't huge, but has all the little things that add to the total ambiance. The kicker is the back deck. The view of sunrise and placement out of the afternoon sun made it difficult to leave for the wineries. Simply spectacular! If you have the pleasure of staying, you'll never try another apartment in the Johnson City/Fredricksburg... so don't tell TOO many people. ;)
Hill Country Perfection!
Everything about our stay was spectacular! Amazing guest house, beautiful art, astounding view, and the best hosts! Zena and EJ think of every little detail and go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed. I’d love to call this my home away from home!
