    Nice quiet cabin in the country. Loved the wraparound porch, view of wildflowers and Henry the goose. The cabin has comfortable furniture and is nicely decorated. Linda was great, we had her over for coffee and a visit. The porch swing after a day of touring was wonderful. We’ll be back for sure!

    We have such a relaxing weekend. We enjoyed the cabin, fishing and sitting on the porch watching the sunsets. Definitely in the country just the way we like it!! But antique shopping is nearby in Carmine, Round Top and Brenham has some wonderful shops and things to see. Good barbecue at Truths BBQ near Brenham. We would definitely stay here again!
