    What’s in a Name: Nameless, Texas

    About five miles northeast of Lago Vista, and three north of Jonestown, you’ll find remnants of an interesting Hill Country ghost town. Nameless, Texas, never reached even 100 residents, and its overall history was fairly ordinary, but at the heart of its history is one of the most frustrating examples of governmental bureaucracy you’ll find anywhere.

    Willow City: More Than Just a Loop

    While working on an article about viewing bluebonnets in the Hill Country, the Willow City Loop came up came up often in our research. We dug some more and found Willow City has an interesting history beyond its scenery. With that said, we’re taking a closer look at the history and heritage of this Hill Country village.

    First of all our Host was amazing. She welcomed my husband and I straight away with warmth and hospitality after our crazy drive. She asked us to just let her know if there was anything that we may need to please feel free to walk over. My husband and I both have worked in the hospitality industry for years so we can see when someone genuinely cares. When we give someone five stars if means that they went over and beyond to make our stay as comfortable, stress free and peaceful as possible. We loved how we had a sense of warmth, comfort and security. I can't stress how much we needed this experience of healing comfort. Thank you so much for having us! 💕🌻
    This was a perfect location for my wife and I for a weekend get away. Even though there are other accommodations on the property, we felt we had privacy. We wanted to stay in Fredricksburg but there were no places available. Staying here turned out to be a true blessing as the drive from Bandara to Fredricksburg was a beautiful drive through the hill country and allowed us to spend some time in Kerrville on our way to Fredricksburg. The owners were available but not intrusive. They were a very nice couple and their place was just what we were looking for.
    Had such a great stay! Communication with host was great, and check in was easy. Host provided tons of information on what to do and see in the area and we Loved the little touches like the breakfast items provided. Amazing location for a nice getaway. So nice to relax with some wine and see the sunset in the hill country. Also awesome to wake up to longhorns in the field and chickens running around. The horse is super friendly too and was my girlfriend’s favorite. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Very cozy cabin that was decorated with many charming items. The host met us shortly after arrival and she told us about the property and how she came to own it. I used to live in San Antonio and was familiar with the area around Bandera. It is one of the loveliest parts of the country and this property reflects that! We stayed two nights and spent time nearby in Bandera, Lost Maples State Natural Area, and Garner State Park. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Dave Fautheree & Debbie Russell Frisco, TX
    The stay on the ranch in Sophie’s cottage was such a relaxing experience. Spending the quiet night and morning just being present with grand open land around you and the company of chickens, Longhorns and the most kind horse really made it a stay to remember!
    This property is adorable! Quaint and country. The roosters, hens, and longhorn were the perfect country living touch. The owner added snacks, drinks, and surprises for us in the cottage. What a hospital host! Joan even went out of her way to help me print out 23 pages of documents that I needed to review on hard copy! What a fantastic weekend spent in Sophie’s Cottage. Thank you.
