Hill Country Charmer


Property Details

Updated: Sep 26, 2016
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Experience the unique pleasure of living in the country for a few days, feeding the deer, watching majestic sunsets, warm sunrises and enjoying black skies full of stars each night. The solitude, yet the co-mingling with nature. Come, get away from the hustle and bustle.

Casita, or little house, is actually about 2100 square feet, all on one level, in the middle of over 10 acres of privacy. The typical Hill Country rock house has a broad front porch across the front for al fresco dining and watching wildlife. The house is warm and wonderful, and the kitchen has newer appliances and is fully equipped for most types of cooking. Ask if you need something special.

Linens are provided for our guests.

There are so many things to do in the Hill Country, including taking country walks both on the property and in the area. The Hill Country has lots of small German towns for antiquing, dining and wine tastings. Nearby San Antonio has museums, SeaWorld and other theme parks, and, of course, the RiverWalk. Ask about hamburger joint voted by TEXAS MONTHLY as third best in Texas.

A short drive to Marquardt Ranch. Ask about the best hamburger joint in the Hill Country.

Just outside Boerne, near Comfort, Luckenbach, Fredericksburg, Tx. Ask about the bat tunnel in the spring and summer (within driving distance). Less than 10 miles to Marquardt Ranch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at your Hill Country Charmer. The house was so comfortable, and we had everything we needed. The trip started out as a golfing adventure, but we stayed at the house every evening on the back deck looking up at the black sky and multitude of stars. Remarkable!

Couldn`t have been better !

You look on line through thousands. Find what you want-- Is it really as described ? Clean, comfortable, owners o.k. ? Do you like them, they you. Are they always "there".?

We stayed the entire month of Jan. This Home is everything as stated & more. You do not feel like your in a rental. This is home has everything you`d want +.Owners checked in on ocasion, just to check. They`re wonderful people always asked if we had everything etc.

We took long walks, neighbors all very friendly.

My wife felt at home & safe-- That left me able to go with friends hunting & fishing.

Boerne is a great, friendly town & very easy to get to S.A. for city "stuff".

This will be our winter "home" for years.

What more can I say Perfect--- Book it !

A Hill Country jewel!

  • 5 of 5

Lise & Ron's beautiful hill country casita turned out to be everything we'd hoped it would be and more! Close enough to Boerne for groceries & restaurants, yet far enough away for seclusion, peace, quiet & STARS at night. Coded gate entry, two-car carport, fully stocked kitchen (complimentary bottles of wine courtesy of the owners), nicely appointed bedrooms, large water heater for those long showers, two sitting areas in the large main room, beautiful dining room table & impressive chandelier, Weber gas grill on the deck, washer & dryer in the carport closet, porch hammock and furniture, and the features & amenities go on and on. It's easy to see why this rental is typically booked for most of the year. Thank you, Lise & Ron, for opening your beautiful home and for making our mini vacation one to remember!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in November, and HIGHLY recommend it! We had a delightful week there.

Functionally - the house was great for my elderly father, being all one level with no stairs/steps, from the carport, covered front porch, through the house and onto the back deck. Great floorplan with a living/sitting area, bedroom(s) and bathroom on each end. Location was exactly what we were looking for. Quiet & secluded with some acreage, but within a residential community and gated-driveway, we felt safe and secure. Nice star-gazing from the back deck, and wildlife watching from the front porch. Loved feeding the deer, visits from the fox, turkey, rabbits, variety of birds, and morning walks. Owners were nearby and we appreciated their attentiveness. The house is lovely and very comfortable, very well supplied with kitchen staples and bath supplies, and well-appointed for those special touches such as multiple good reading lamps, fireplace set-up ready to be started, WiFi and extensive TV channel options, and attention to cleanliness details.

The house is supplied w/ local activity brochures and maps. We've visited the area multiple times over many years, and this trip really enjoyed exploring the back-roads to the west, state parks, and small towns.

Seems vacation rentals always have some little or big aspect of disappointment or not what was imagined implied or represented, but I can't think of a single thing for this property. Starting from the lovely driveway to the house it continued to exceed my expectations! Hoping to go back again this year.

Secluded and quiet home

  • 4 of 5

We had a girl cousin reunion over a long weekend. We enjoyed sitting on the back deck, eating and visiting. Early morning and dusk was spent feeding the 15-20 deer only 10-20' away. The fawns were so cute! The owner was very nice and helpful. It's within 20 minutes of Boerne for shopping and eating out.

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

My cousins and I had our reunion here and couldn't have been happier with the home! It was beautiful and had everything we needed! It was totally secluded and private and we felt very safe and secure with it being gated. The beds were very comfortable, too. Watching the many dear come up to feed every morning and evening was so awesome! Lise was great to work with! Thank you for such a wonderful weekend, Lise!

Secluded feel with amenities!

We were here for the Feast Of Tabernacles and couldn't have asked for a better place. Serene, beautiful, nature, animals of many kinds, just pure bliss.

Thank you For allowing us to partake of the beauty that you have here.

If you have any issue with ants at all, sprinkle fire ant bait around the foundation of the house and within just mere hours you will be ant free! We loved this place....all 4 of us!
