"What a glorius weekend! We couldn't have picked a better place to spend our 10 year anniversary. The serene & stunning property was exactly what we hoped for. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us and for the hospitality - everything was amazing and we look forward to coming back!"
David & Melissa, Montgomery, TX, 05/19/2017

"Ell & Jeff have been the most kind and accommodating - they worked us in on a Sunday night without a reservation, which is unheard of! Our stay here was perfect in every way. The property is even more beautiful than pictures suggest. we took in the scenery while sitting in the garden, sitting by the creek, by the fire, and in the hammock. Still not sure which spot is my favorite! Deer can be seen every time you open the door. Truly a magical place. Thank you so much!"
Ayla & Chase, Fort Worth, TX, 05/15/2017

"Ell & Jeff, What a wonderful time we've had. You're the perfect hosts. Thank you for taking time to give us travel tips. We will be thinking of you for the rest of our vacation - Love your Texas hospitality."
Steve & Terri, Clearwater, FL, 10/08/2016

"Kiley and I came down for a weekend of girl time and we were not sure what to expect as we were both first timers to B & B's and Dripping Springs. Ell & Jeff were the most welcoming hosts either of us has ever had. The pictures on the website and even other reviews did not do these great people and beautiful place justice. The attention to detail is impeccable. Perfect weekend stay & we are sad to go, but we will be back!"
Kiley & Eren, Fort Worth, TX, 03/27/2016

"Elle, Thank you for a wonderful Valentine's Day escape. This place is a glittering Texas jewel nestled in the Hill Country - everything was perfect from the sunset over the hills while we ate outside, to the beautifully cared-for grounds, to the thoughtful personal touches in the cottage. We could not have asked for a more serene getaway nor a more gracious host. Best Wishes"
Jess & Greg, Killeen, TX, 02/14/2016

Y'all be blessed as you continue to bless others. Love,

We loved every moment: playing games in the room, relaxing on the porch & watching nature pass by, eating breakfast with a view, and being so close to state parks and quaint towns. Wimberley was a fun & unexpected joy in our stay. We can't wait to come back when the water is flowing & see this place in all of its glory, and we look forward to more anniversaries and special days to come at this gem We feel blessed to have found. Thank you for everything Ell!

The location was beautiful, relaxing, and we want to come back as soon as we can, so please be expecting us in the future. I look forward to having another drink with you and chatting it up.

"L & J -
As you know and have planned, you have a little 'gem' here in the hill country. We'll have to tell our friends and hope they'll plan to come and have as much fun as we did. It was a real pleasure meeting you two also, And we're very impressed with all you've done here. Quite an accomplishment. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats and your Texas hospitality!  
Your friends from Richmond, "
