Welcome to the Hill Country Charmer, a lovely home in the very heart of Dripping Springs, minutes from great restaurants and shops, 5 minutes from Camp Lucy, and just 20 from Austin. We are nestled on 2 acres of wooded greenspace and a quick drive to beautiful hill country hot spots, Wimberley shopping and swimming, Hamilton Pool, and Krause Springs. We are just miles from dozens of beautiful Hill Country Wineries, as well as Jester King, Twisted X and Thirst goat breweries, and the new Deep Eddy Vodka distillery. The Charmer is less than a 30 minute drive to the beautiful Pedernales Falls State Park, where you can bike, birdwatch, swim or horseback ride. It is perfect for large family gatherings, as it sleeps up to 8. There are three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, and the kitchen and dining room seat 8. Our spacious kitchen is fully stocked for meal preparation, and living room is large and comfy for relaxing and chatting. Our large back deck has plenty of seating for a large family, or two, with a grill for your backyard gathering. We can't wait for you to see our Charmer, and know you will love it as much as we have.

About Laura Sullivan
Hi! We are the Larsens and the Sullivans, and we have been proud residents of Dripping Springs for over 10 years. We love Dripping Springs and everything about the small town, country feel of it. The Larsens built the Charmer 2 years ago and lived in it before deciding to share with others! We know you will love the Charmer as much as we do.
Laura Sullivan purchased this House in 2016
Why Laura Sullivan chose Dripping Springs
This house is set on two acres so you have plenty of space and privacy, but what is so unique is how close the Charmer is to so many hot spots in Dripping. Mercer street is a mile jaunt down the road where you will find unique shopping and delicious eats. Hamilton Pool Preserve is a gorgeous, clear blue swimming hole, and a must see for any traveler to the area, a short 15 miles from the Charmer. If you like scenic Hill Country Wineries, you are in luck. There are dozens within 20 miles, Bell Springs Winery, Treaty Oak Distillery, Driftwood Estate, Duchman Family, and many more. Texas Hill Country Olive Company is 4 miles up the road to tour and enjoy. Reimers Ranch Park is 10 miles from us, and another beautiful area to swim or fish! We are truly the gateway to the Hill Country.

Great house, beautiful property and convenient to everything including the places we visited!
Stayed here for a nearby family wedding. Clean, cool, and comfortable. Met all our needs and surpassed our expectations. Beds are comfortable, lots of towels, and a well appointed kitchen. Very pleased.
Great Location but Dirty
The positives of this house:
-Nice land and backyard (deer visit often).
-Great location and central to fun places like Austin and Wimberly.
-Nice layout for a family or a family with grandparents joining.
-Nice TV in master bedroom.
The negatives of this house:
-It hasn't had a deep cleaning in a very long time. Light switches, doors, door knobs, baseboards, cabinets, appliances, washer/dryer, windows, remotes...all had dirt and grime built up and was sticky to the touch.
-Upon arrival, the dryer was full of towels and the washer had unwashed sheets in it. Not relaxing or sanitary to walk in and have to take care of someone else's laundry.
-Though there are instructions for the cable/tv there, it still took my husband (who is in IT) over a half an hour to make 2 of the 3 TVs work.
-The bunk bed wasn't sturdy at all.
If the owners take care of the deep cleaning that is desperately needed and if the tv/cable and bed issues are addressed, this could be a much better place to stay.
We deeply apologize that the house was not up to standards! Once in a while we have a very quick turnaround and we are unable to inspect it before check in. We have deep cleaned the house for future guests and will be much more vigilant in the future about inspecting closely. Again, very sorry and thanks for bringing this to our attention.
I would absolutely make this an annual destination. This was my first time ever renting a private home and I loved it. If I were being extremely picky I would critique very minor things, but the overall ambiance of the area outweighs everything.
I could not have asked for a nicer, well stocked home to stay in! Plus the host responded rapidly to every question I had and was beyond kind. I could not recommend this house more!
We hosted a small group meeting here and the location and house were perfect. Quiet and well provisioned. Would definitely recommend!
