Misty and Kyle were awesome.

The cottage reminds us so much of Grandma's house even with grandmas sheets !( only problem was barely elastic in the bottom sheet) But honestly everything was wonderful we enjoyed our time there... the view cannot be beat !!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a nice review of Shamrock Cottage. It was acquired by my grandfather in 1945. My mother rebuilt it in the 80's when they moved onto the property. She added the screen porch with the view. It is where I slept when visiting. Linens are being upgraded and will be ready for your next stay. We are fortunate to have Kyle and Misty. They have been living in the back and taking care of the place for several years.

Dead roach under leaky sink, dirty bathroom. Clean dishes still in drain. Filthy stove top. Had to ask for coffee pot. Decided not to cook breakfast because didn't want to put up someone else's dishes. Bleach stained small, very used bath towels, no wash cloths. Front porch desperately needed sweeping. Decorating outdated, cluttered with unrelated items. Because of the appearance, not sure about the sheets, but didn't come home with bed bug bites. Beds on screened porch mildewed and filthy. Will not recommend or go back. Motel 6 in Kerrville better option! Only one star because will not accept no stars!

The Shamrock cottage was perfect for our stay,however the place was not clean. Dusty,dirty bed sheets, coffee pot , floor etc. We didn't have sheets for the sleeper sofa and few eating utensils.

The pool was very clean and lovely.

I would love to stay here again but suggest Rocky have a talk with the are takers.

Screened Porch is the best.

  • 3 of 5

We had a very relaxing time in the cottage. We really enjoyed sitting on the screened porch and looking out at the creek and trees. When we arrived the creek was dry but then the rains dumped so much water, it filled up and was flowing beautifully. We loved listening to the sound of it and we saw a hummingbird. The cabin itself is basic. I agree with another reviewer that it could use a really good cleaning. The freezer part of the small refrigerator was frozen over so we couldn't put our ice packs in it. (No hair dryer available to defrost it.) There were only 2 small fry pans and the handle was loose on one of them so if you plan to cook for a group, bring your own pan etc. Our Chihuahua liked it. There is plenty of grassy area to walk around with her. We didn't find any trails to walk from the property but we did walk the short way down to the creek. The king bed was very comfortable. Ask for the wifi password before or when you get there. We couldn’t find it listed anywhere in the room so we emailed the property manager. There are board games like monopoly and boggle as well as several books and magazines. The Texas Stonehenge II and Easter Island Heads display is just down the road. It's a quick stop to walk around and take pictures. All in all, it was a very nice stay.

Shamrock Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased w/the cabin. The bed was really comfortable & the cabin was supplied w/most everything we could have needed. The only complaint we have was that there was no water in the 'creek'. However, the setting was private & pleasant and there is public access to the river just little ways down the road. I do recommend this place.

Shamrock cottage

  • 2 of 5

The shamrock cottage is in a great location and the bed is super comfy . However that it is advertised as sleeping 6 is a joke . The porch is filthy and I wouldn't let my dog sleep out there . There was dirt all over the beds and dust and dirt on everything. If you were wanting a camping experience you would at least shake out the tent first . The rest of the place was only a little better . It's really a shame because it could be a really nice place .
