Why Marty Byrd chose Shiner

If you would like to escape the hustle & bustle of the city come visit our farm in Shiner. We offer the peace & tranquility. There are lots of other small country towns surrounding the area all with appeal of country living.

What makes this farmhouse unique

From our wrap around porches there is always a view! If you are an early bird you can watch the deer gather at their feeder while sipping on your fresh brewed coffee. Everything is better in the country.

Gracious country living

  • 5 of 5

We are delighted to have found this wonderful property. The pictures accurately represent the level of quality, but can’t capture the excellent experience. From the kind and gracious hosts to the well appointed kitchen, the Barndominium seemed a home away from home for our three generation party of four. Highly recommended.

A slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our anniversary and the property is a gem. Marty and James are great hosts and precious beyond words. They’re there to help if needed, but also gave us all the privacy we wanted. The apartment was super clean, cozy and the kitchen was well stocked. The bed was super comfy. The views are incredible and the back porch was a great place to just hang out and watch stars at night. The outdoor shower was amazing!

Planning to return!

Great Time at a Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Just had the pleasure of staying at the Byrd's property for my son's baseball tournament in Shiner. First, if you are going to play baseball at the shiner complex this has to be o e of the closest places to stay.

On top of it's proximity to the Shiner sports complex, the Byrds have put together a wonderful first class place to stay. The accommodations were very modern and comfortable. I stay in places around the country for work and for pleasure and they have really made their place a relaxing oasis. First, the building is well insulated, so it stays cool in the Texas heat and also keeps it quiet if you want to sleep in. They have a very comfortable king bed and a pull out queen for the kids. The kitchen is fully stocked with modern appliances and all the cooking utensils you would need. My son loved the outdoor shower after a long day of baseball. On top of the wonderful lodging, the Byrds basically have a small zoo on their premises. From peacocks, turkeys, ducks, goats, quail, geese, a baby deer and the most friendly dogs that my kids feel in love with. Top it all off with a friendly couple, the Byrds made us feel welcome from the time we arrived. Do yourself a favor and skip the local hotels and stay here, it's worth the experience.

Owner's Response: The Rivera family will be on top of our most memorable guest list! A very active family who enjoyed spending time on our property. They confirmed our Barndominium provided all of their immediate needs. Any Host would be lucky to have them as guest!

Great country getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family getaway. Nice clean modern one bedroom apartment. Outdoor shower is great. Having all the animals around was great for our kids and the dogs were well behaved. James and Marty were very kind and even shared some blackberries, zucchini squash, and cucumber from their garden and gave us a little drive around their property. Super nice and fairly private.

Great getaway for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

The Byrd’s Nest was the perfect getaway for our family of four. The “Barndominium” was just amazing and had everything we needed for our stay. Our kids just loved the dogs (especially the puppies) and all the animals on the property...guinea fowl, turkeys, peacocks, goats, and ducks. We are already planning on returning. The Byrds were friendly and very gracious hosts, taking time to let all of us play with the animals. Thanks for a GREAT stay in Shiner!

Car: recommended

Many small towns to visit. Shiner, Halletsville, Gonzalez, Luling, San Antonio, Guadalupe River all just a nearby trip. Enjoy reading a book under the big oak trees, picnic near the ponds, visit the local Kolache Bakeries for a slow paced country visit. We offer a big selection of DVD's too for any couch potatoes!
