Rustic Country Life

  • 5 of 5

I was raised a country farm boy. We had cows and horses. This place felt like I was coming home. It is a great base camp to explore the Texas Hill Country! The icicle lights on the outside helped guide us home each night, nice touch. I would have liked to have had access to the upstairs, just for explorations sake, though.

Sweet and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The property is tucked away but very well maintained. It's small, but perfect for a couples getaway. The bed is comfy and the tub is amazing!

Wonderful romantic getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were amazingly impressed with the MorningStar ranch! The seclusion and wildlife around the ranch were just wonderful, not a house or a person in sight. We felt like it was our own little place, we got in real late and that he was on for us so we can feel comfortable right away . The history on the place and the historical memorabilia were very nice touch. Everything was very clean and the bed was super comfortable, way better than some local hotel room. Just minutes away from Fredericksburg and an easy drive away from enchanted rock. Our host was very accommodating and timely and their responses, we will definitely be back !
