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!

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.

What guests are saying...

We LOVED our stay here! The pictures do not do it justice - it feels larger in person than the pictures portray. The space was perfect for my husband, myself, and our large dog, but would have been comfy still with another couple. I would be mindful of who is sleeping upstairs if you're utilizing that upstairs bedroom - the stairs are a bit steep and the steps are narrow, so would not be ideal for an older person, but was fine for us. The kitchen was stocked and had everything we needed to cook pretty much all of our meals. We walked around the property multiple times, our dog ran free the whole time, and we built fires in the fire pit every night. The space was exactly what we were looking for and we will definitely be back!
Old Fellers Cabin was just what my wife and I needed. Quiet, peaceful, and close enough to town if we needed anything. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate but I bet the star gazing from here is amazing! However there are enough deer to keep you watching the brush all day long. We will definitely be back from another stay, might even bring the whole family next time. Thanks again for another great cabin for our special weekends away from the world! You guys are awesome and my first spot to look when planning another trip. We love to get away to something different, and forget about the day-to-day and y'all always come through. Your cleaning staff is top notch, and we always have what need. Keep up the good work, we'll talk soon! Thank You Bunches, Drayton and Lauren
The cottage is perfectly situated in peaceful, natural surroundings. Absolutely love the peace and quiet, watching the meteor shower and stars from the second level balcony / porch (it’s above the tree line and the Adirondack chairs are so comfortable for stargazing!) So nice to enjoy morning coffee on the porch watching the wildlife, and the luxe bathtub came in handy for a nice relaxing soak after a long hike at nearby Lost Maples! Overall a fantastic stay that I wish could be longer! Hosts are friendly and responsive, with clear instructions for the house. Their app also has fantastic recommendations for things to do in the area- a good resource I’ll continue to use! Thank you Backroads!!
The place is peaceful. Exactly as described. It was the perfect place to watch the eclipse.
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.
