Charming Country Ranch House, Family Friendly

Charming Country Ranch House, Family Friendly

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 7, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Lovely home on working ranch with expansive views of rural countryside. Ranch has horses, cattle, sheep, chickens, cats & dogs, and real live roosters- so no need for an alarm! But you can always go back to sleep.

The home is clean and well-cared for and includes covered porches, washer & dryer, full kitchen, WiFi, and all the furnishing that make a house a home.

There is a 2 vehicle carport that will keep the hot Texas sun from melting your dash in the summer heat! Gated entry and the owners' home shares the property.

Good Morning,

 

I wanted to personally say that we had an amazing time on your property. All of my party enjoyed the dogs…I think one person even “adopted” them for the duration of our stay.

Charming country ranch house, family friendly, is an accurate description! Very clean with all the comforts. Anna and Robert are great hosts. The extra little touches they put into their place make it special. We will definitely be back!!

Could not ask for more!

I am a bit conflicted about writing this review...on one hand, I want to give the GLOWING review that Robert and Anna deserve, but on the other hand I want to keep it our little secret!

All kidding aside, our stay with Robert and Anna during the 2014 Formula 1 Grand Prix this year was absolutely FABULOUS. We have been to this event 3 times and have stayed in all walks of accommodations. This is by far our favorite! For starters, I am not sure there are 2 nicer people in all of Texas! Anna was very communicative long before we ever arrived, which was much appreciated. Upon arrival we had a fridge full of beverages and a welcome snack tray (much needed after a long flight!). The property is exactly as pictured, if not better. The rooms are perfect and the beds are the most comfortable that I have ever slept on in a vacation rental, and the animals are a complete joy! Anna and Robert go above and beyond to provide sincere hospitality. I honestly do not feel that any review I could write would do them or the property justice. This property is a MUST HAVE for our future trips to Texas. Don't miss this one!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
I usually stay in Austin to be close to the music, however this time decided to travel in and take advantage of the country close by.

What a great choice. Firstly communication with the owners Robert and Anna is very clear. On arrival we found a very clean, but welcoming property with a very nice welcome package of wine, meats and cheeses. ( we were asked for other options).

I was joined by three other friends and we found the two rooms, day bed and pull out sofa bed were perfect.

All facilities worked well and it was nice having the owners close by, but not intrusive. They are perfect hosts.

During our stay we had a nice surprise of a coffee cake and even some smoked venison.

The location is well placed for driving into Austin via the i35 or 183. We could make it into the city within 30mins.

Nice to see the Ranch life - Horses, rams, Cattle. This is a great location and the owners give a perfect example of Texan hospitality.

Looking forward to getting out again.

Owner's Response: we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the ranch. I meant to ask, if there was a coin toss to see who got the bed rooms for their accomodations. It was a pleasure to meet all ya, and look forward to hosting your next visit to the Austin area via our country ranch house! Stay safe, the wagner's

EXTREMELY CHARMING COUNTRY HOME - YOU'LL LOVE IT!

EXTREMELY CHARMING COUNTRY HOME - YOU'LL LOVE IT!
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Anna's country home and we absolutely loved it!!! For months I had been looking for a quiet, secluded home to stay in when my husband and I go to the San Marcos River time to time. Immediately when I saw her listing, I knew I wanted to stay in her home. Her house is immaculately clean and is just as the pictures show it! We've never slept on a Tempur-Pedic mattress, so we were hoping it would be comfortable. Boy were we surprised - it was probably the most comfortable bed either of us have ever slept in! Anna is so sweet, and she really cares that her guest's needs are taken care of! She thinks of so many little things - a well stocked kitchen, dozen eggs from her chickens, refrigerated bottled water, teabags, DVD & books (for kids & adults), and even has several things for babies stored in her closet (baby bed, high chair,...). I highly recommend her home to anyone whether it be a single person, couple, or family.

Home Sweet Home...Life in the Country

  • 5 of 5
A rancher's paradise. We came to relax, enjoy southern culture and hospitality, and to show our children that there is more to life than the 9-5 hustle and bustle of the city. We walked away with great experiences and new friends (human and animal). Anna and Robert were AMAZING. We had some goodies in our fridge when we arrived and fresh eggs at our disposal daily. We were greeted by 6 amazing dogs that we immediately loved and interacted with every day. My 6 yr old son was eager to learn about farm life so "Miss Anna" showed him the ropes and allowed him to help with the daily chores, animal feedings, water changing and egg collecting. The house was delightfully quaint and very clean and the beds were comfortable. We loved it so much, we rarely went into town (which was only 30 mins away). The utter piece and quiet with the warm country breeze was PERFECT!!

We will DEFINITELY be back (soon I hope).

Robert and Anna- Thank you for everything- please give hugs to Roy, Os, Ellie, Pearl, Baz, Dozer, Socks, Maya and Joe. We Miss them terribly!

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was awesome. Everyone loved it!! Our only complaint was, we didn't want to leave. The master bedroom's bed was so comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed, even extras. Ana was so gracious and accommodating by also having a bowl full of apples and snacks in refrigerator. Ana and Robert provided great customer service. We were able to go to enjoy the great bar-b-que in Lockhart for dinner, then go to the river in San Marcos another day, and then enjoy San Antonio the next
day. We cannot wait to be able to come back again.
