Tex-Zen Dream's Cottage-of-Dreams bedroom annex is nestled 250 ft from the main residence on a picturesque hillside at the center of 10+ acres overlooking Sycamore Creek, a creekside gazebo and a unique arched foot bridge. Two private rooms are immaculately decorated with custom and designer window and wall treatments, carpet, antiques, theme collectables, bedding and furnishings. The bedroom cottage is 100% designed, built and decorated by the proud innkeepers and proprietors. Loretta and Jeff, who live in the residence on the property, are dedicated to hospitality, and are enthusiastically available for help with their guest's hill country experience or event planning.

The Cottage-of-Dreams bedroom annex features two separate non-adjoining rooms with private entries and the shared Daydream gazebo. Choose either the Bouquet or Boutonniere room, decorated in feminine or masculine motifs respectively. Both 250sqft rooms feature a private bath, kitchenette, and a comprehensive list of amenities.

The endeavor at Tex-Zen Dreams is to provide an oasis of peace and tranquility from the everyday world; consequently we provide no land-line telephones and no wi-fi service. Either room in the Cottage-of-Dreams accommodates a maximum of two adults, and to preserve the high quality of the indoor environment, no smoking and no pets are allowed. The designer decor, antique furnishings, movie selection, and the ambiance we strive to maintain at the Cottage-of-Dreams are not suitable for children. It's your choice to mingle with the innkeepers at the main residence, pool, and/or enjoy your privacy at the cottage and gazebos.
