Welcome to our new 4BR/3BA hacienda in the Hill Country. We have everything you need for the perfect Hill Country retreat. Our beautiful, newly constructed home sits on an amazing 1.5 acre property overlooking the creek. Our living room is open and spacious, perfect for entertaining or just relaxing and watching TV. We have cable and Wi-Fi for our guests to stay connected. Our kitchen is fully stocked for cooking. We have all the amenities of home and then some. I love just showing up with groceries and not having to worry about anything else. There is plenty of counter space when preparing family style meals or maybe just snacks for the river, either way we have it all. Our dining room has seating for six and one of the best views of the expansive backyard. We have four bedrooms and three bathrooms so we can accommodate all our family and friends without ever having to feel claustrophobic. All of our bedrooms come with cozy deluxe queen beds and plenty of closet/drawer space. We find it very convenient to have three full bathrooms in the house because no one ever has to compete for space to get ready. Our favorite part of the property is venturing out to the back porch and yard. You can sit out on our big back porch and use the telescope to stargaze or maybe catch the occasional meteor shower. We also love to sit around the fire pit with family and friends to exchange stories. As long as there isn’t a fire ban in the area we usually make s’mores over the fire pit or just kick our feet back and gossip over the flames. No matter if you are hitting the wineries or wanting a family escape, either way this is the perfect Hill Country retreat.

The Dripping Springs area is rich in wonderful attractions. The house is in the vicinity of other Hill Country attractions such as Salt Lick BBQ and the Duchman Winery. Hamilton Pool nature Preserve is just a short drive away and is one of the best swimming holes in Texas –and a great place to picnic, hike, swim, and spend some time on a Texas summer day. Reimers Ranch is a great place for hiking or horseback riding with the family. Our house is a 30-minute drive from downtown Austin and less than an hour's drive from Fredericksburg and Luckenbach, two Texas cities with rich histories and even more activities for the whole family. Guests will enjoy the many activities within the vicinity that are true to Texas, such as the drive-in Corral Theatre in Wimberly as well as Wimberly Days, the second largest outdoor market in the state. Just a few minutes from our house abides the Pedernales Falls State Park, where guests can enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and other activities on the river. We are also just a few minutes from the Texas Hill Country Olive Company. Also offering fun Hill Country excursions are the Bluebonnet Wine Tours, where guests can sample wines from the numerous local wineries.
