Come and experience a country setting where "nothing to do" is the activity of choice. Located just outside the small community of Joppa, total privacy awaits you upon your arrival. You can read a book from the owner's collection of Texana or bring your own. Go for a walk, fish in the river or pond, mountain bike the meandering country roads, watch the deer feed in front of the cottage, or stargaze from the privacy of your own hot tub.
The guest house offers first class accommodations with a western flair. Southwestern furnishings, including a handcrafted sassafras bed and numerous family antiques accent the cottage. A cowhide rug sits at the foot of the queen bed. In the bath is a claw foot tub and an old style pedestal sink. The guest house also has a large living area with a stone fireplace and a queen sleeper sofa. A private porch with two rocking chairs looks out over an open pasture and the San Gabriel River.
What We Offer
Wake up each morning and enjoy breakfast in the privacy of your own room or outside on the front porch. Hidden away in the country cupboard are homemade pastries and gourmet coffee. The cottage also includes a full-size refrigerator, coffeemaker, and microwave. The kitchen is fully equipped and has all the necessary kitchen utensils for those who wish to cook. There is a gas grill outside and a hot tub for those cold winter nights. The cabin is also equipped with a CD/cassette/radio along with a TV/VCR and a small collection of videos.
In 1991, an old Victorian home located in Burnet, Texas was moved to the present location on the San Gabriel River and restored to its original condition. Several years later, a guest house was added near the main house to accommodate the many visitors to the ranch. The guest house has now been converted into a quiet bed and breakfast retreat. The cottage is the perfect sanctuary for those who prefer absolute privacy and seclusion. We are located only 40 miles northwest of Austin near Bertram, Texas.
