Why Scott Friedeck chose Dripping Springs
This site offers a guest the best of both worlds. It is only four miles from Dripping Springs, yet its secluded location on a 15-acre site, offers guests the opportunity to experience and enjoy the peaceful beauty of the Hill Country. Deer roam the property and graze unconcerned among the sheltering oaks, yet a wide-range of attractions and activities are within easy driving distance. Shopping, art galleries, winery tours and tastings, and live music performances are just a few of the local highlights.
What makes this Estate unique
Walking distance to La Hacienda Event Center wedding venue. Less than one-half mile to Memory Lane Event Center wedding venue.

Genuinely a Home Away from Home!
The property owners were very kind and helpful with any questions we had prior to checkin. We rented the house for the duration of events for our son's wedding and we were very comfortable. We enjoyed the remote, quiet location. The morning after the hubbub of the wedding, we had a nice relaxing cup of coffee as we watched the deer in the front yard.
Adorable house with awesome hosts!
We got married on 12/30/17 at La Hacienda (right near this house) and rented this house for our parents/grandparents and 2 fur babies to stay the night before and night of our wedding. First of all, the owner Scott was SUPER awesome - very flexible and super responsive! Second, the house couldn't have been cuter! We loved the cozy rustic, farmhouse look and feel. The location of the house was also perfect since we were using La Hacienda as our wedding venue - it was a 30-second drive or a 5 min walk to/from the house/venue. You definitely get the
peaceful country vibe as the house is set back on the property so even if you weren't using the venue you're far enough away to have privacy/separation. The only downside was the cell service (AT&T and Verizon) wasn't very good inside the house, the walls are solid! lol, but we had service just fine on the patio. They had free wifi too but with 8 people logged on facebook and youtube at the same time, it was a bit slow. Not a huge deal for us since we were busy with wedding stuff and visiting with family and friends. Overall we'd definitely recommend this place! THANK YOU, Scott & Thalia! xoxo
Great guest lodging
La Hacienda lodge was a great place to put up some of our guests for our wedding at Memory Lane. It has everything folks would need to be independent, but is close enough that it’s easy to come and go for meals and other events.
Wine Weekend Getaway
Had a great stay while visiting the Dripping Spring area. The house is in a great location with several wineries and breweries nearby!
Great spot for family
Had a great stay. There were seven of us and we were comfortable. Only reason for four star, not five was that the dish washer didn’t work, which meant I was the dishwasher(ugggg). Also shower fixture in master was super difficult to use. Other than those small issues it was great. Close to wineries and some awesome Barbecue!
As the owner that does not stay at the house, we were unaware the dishwasher had become non-functional since the guest the week before. The dishwasher has been fixed, and was actually used this past weekend by more guest of our house. This is the first complaint we have had about the shower fixture being difficult, and it will be looked at. It is a single knob (up off, down on, left hotter, right colder) with a single shower head. We will look to see if we can find something less difficult for future guest.
Was perfect for what we went for.
Relaxing and convenient for what we went for.
Located just off winery-lined Ranch Road 12 between the charming town of Dripping Springs and always-popular Wimberley, this location offers nature's beauty with all the quiet and relaxation guests might desire in a location a short drive from some great activities.
One of the county's largest outlet malls is a short drive away in San Marcos, which also offers some great river tubing. Go the other direction to Austin, which is not just the state capital, it's also the capital of the state's music scene. The toughest thing about the trip will be deciding what to do first.
Both Dripping Springs and Wimberley feature a wide array of eclectic shops featuring everything from antiques, to clothing, jewelry, and all manner of surprise discoveries. The area also is home to a glass blowing shop and multiple art galleries.
Regional favorite swimming holes such as Hamilton Pool Preserve and the Blue Hole are within driving distance, or simply grab an inner tube and head to one of the local rivers to enjoy a nice float through some beautiful scenery.
Some of the state's oldest dance halls, often featuring live music, dot the region in almost any direction. You can waltz across Texas, two-step the night away, or simply tap your toes to the music and enjoy a great time.
More than a dozen wineries are nearby for tours and sampling, along with multiple craft beer breweries, several vodka distilleries, a rum distillery, and locations producing other libations such as whiskey and tequila. Available transportation allows you to get a group together to enjoy a good time with your own designated driver handling the hill country roads.
Those with an interest in plants can learn more about growing bonsai trees, visit a lavender farm, or check out the local olive harvest all within close range.
This specific rental is located between two event venues, offering ideal housing for wedding guests or members of the wedding party who might want to arrive a few days early or stay a few extra days. It is, however, also available to families or small groups who might want to enjoy a few special days in an incredible Hill Country location.
