Old Fellow's Farmhouse

Property Type : Houses

Property Description

The Old Fellow's Farmhouse near Kerrville once played a role in the rich farming and ranching history of the Hill Country. It's been amazingly restored and renovated, while keeping its rustic country charm, including; new furniture, hi-tech amenities, new appliances and other added comforts for visitors to this beautiful region! The farmhouse sits handsomely on five scenic acres in the heart of the Hill Country and is loaded with comfortable and welcoming amenities. It's an amazing getaway!

Embark with us on our amazing Hill Country Eclipse Journey! By astronomical luck, the Hill Country will be in the path of two upcoming solar eclipses. Saturday, October 14, 2023 will bring an annular "Ring of Fire" eclipse, and a full solar eclipse will occur Monday, April 8, 2024. We've got 125 great vacation homes in the region, covering 21 Hill Country towns, all in the eclipse "bullseye." Experience the enchantment of the darkest night skies and witness the finest solar eclipse viewing in the Hill Country.

You'll see you're in for something special as you approach the farmhouse, with its unique and striking barnboard-style construction and decorative filigreed woodwork circling the front porch. The mountain views from your rental cabin are beautiful, and lots of birds and wildlife call the area home. It's a treat for nature lovers, and with Kerrville 13 miles away, you'll have opportunities to spend time in town, too!

The shaded porch and gazebo are well-furnished, including a swing on the porch and ceiling fans for outdoor comfort, and they're adorned with strings of lights to add glittering magic to your nights here. An elevated deck off the upstairs bedroom offers even more stunning Hill Country views. Enjoy conversation, s'mores, and stargazing around the fire pit, with free firewood for the pit and the fireplace inside! Want a Texas-style cookout? There's a smoker and BBQ on hand, too!

Central air keeps this gorgeous Texas-themed guest home comfortable, and gorgeous woodwork gives the farmhouse a glow and personality all its own. Roku-ready TVs can be found in the downstairs media room and upstairs bedroom, with Wifi Internet service throughout. With a king-sized bed in the master (downstairs) bedroom, and a king-sized bed upstairs and a queen sofa bed in the media room, there's comfy sleeping space here for up to six, and clean bed and bath linens are provided. The downstairs master bath has a roomy shower, and upstairs you'll find a soothing and nostalgic clawfoot tub. There's a huge dining table, a fully-equipped kitchen, a washer and dryer combo, and even a workspace in the master bedroom.

What guests are saying...

It was so peaceful and quiet. Very beautiful scenery and deer grazing on the property.
This cabin is absolutely amazing. You can feel the peace exude from the land and cabin. It’s almost as if time slowed down, allowing us to soak in the beauty. The cabin is immaculate as far as cleanliness, and amenities. I will def recommend to anyone looking for a close getaway. Thank you for this opportunity to recharge my soul here.
Our family loved staying at Old Fellow's Farmhouse. It felt private and remote while still being an easy distance from Kerrville and other Hill Country locations. We especially enjoyed watching stars on the roof deck and exploring the trails around the property. We had visiting deer every day and the outdoor lights provided great ambiance. This was such a fun place to stay that our kids keep saying, "I wish we were back at our little farmhouse!" Hopefully we'll have the opportunity to go back soon!

Everything about this spot was amazing and felt magical. Never wanted to leave. Saw some amazing sky activity on the star deck, highly recommend spending every night laying up there. Smoker was extremely high quality. Property was close enough to a corner store and heb while feeling secluded and away from everyone.

This is the best Airbnb we have stayed at so far. You will not be disappointed at all. The house and the property was perfect for our needs. Thank you so much! Also, the towels were the softest towels I have ever used in my life…Js 👍🏼
