À propos de ce logement

Small homestead in the heart of Texas bluebonnet country--this is Unwind Central. Open-plan two bedroom home, wrap-around porch overlooking peaceful wildlife pond. Terrific kitchen and bath, wood stove, coyote chorus, every window has a lovely view.

Le logement

If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the place. It's sometimes difficult to get people to move off the back porch, where they tend to park in one of the comfy rocking chairs, gaze at the pond, enjoy the ever-present breeze, breath the incredibly fresh air, and heave a sigh of contentment.
It's also convenient to Round Top and associated venues.

Accès des voyageurs

All parts of the main house are accessible, including use of the washer-dryer, kitchen appliances (there is a shelf reserved for guest's food), internet access. Limited space is available in each of the bedroom closets.
In the rare case that guests have livestock, there are 2 fenced pastures that can be used, one with an overhang shelter. Guest should feel free to wander about and enjoy the tranquility, sample whatever might be growing on trees or in the garden.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I'll be generally available and staying in the little cottage (a favorite getaway place for writers). Although I do sometimes have to take day trips, I'm always accessible by phone or email. I respect your privacy, so will not disturb you, but I have very much enjoyed interaction with my amazingly diverse and interesting guests!

Autres remarques

Although there isn't television service, there is access to movies, etc. via NetFlix.
During certain time of the year, grass stickers and burrs abound. It is best to wear covered shoes if you plan to go wandering around, especially children.
Likewise, the "lawn" is more like a pasture, so has the occasional gopher hole or armadillo burrow so care should be taken when zipping around the place.

Gerri's Place is perfect for getting away and decompressing. The covered porch and rocking chairs are a perfect spot to sit and watch the horse and cows, listen to wind in the trees, and relax. The house is very comfortable and well furnished. The kitchen has everything one would need. There is a TV with Netflix and a DVD player if the silence gets to be too much. We will definitely be back.

What a peaceful time we had for a weekend getaway! Gerri is extremely friendly and has a wonderful home. It was great being able to bring our pups along for the trip. My dog misses his friend, the horse on property, beautiful friendly horse. During roundtop antique days we will book again

This is the second time we've stayed at Gerri's for our family get together. It is perfect. Great shady yard, wonderful porch, easy distance from houston and austin, very comfy and cozy. After our big family picnic, my family stayed on and had a great time being in the country. Porch sitting, a walk under the stars after dark, nice morning having coffee and breakfast on the porch. The kitchen is new and the bathroom is great--clawfoot tub and great shower. Gerri is super helpful and friendly. We love this place!!!

Had a great time at Gerri's house. Quiet and peaceful. So nice of Gerri to share her home and personal supplies with renters. She even let us use her eggs and offered to let us use her washing machine. Very kind. We enjoyed watching her pet cats that live on the property as well - what clowns.

I knew from the moment that I booked the lovely farmhouse home of Gerri's the experience would be welcoming and relaxing. There were no hidden surprises as all was true to inviting description and pictures of this lovely place. The communication with Gerri was wonderful. A caring host with genuine hospitality only wanting to make her guests feel welcomed before their arrival and during their stay. We were greeted by Gerri upon our arrival. She was helpful in letting us know a few housekeeping rules and offered her number for us to be in touch in case we needed anything at all! The farmhouse with a wrap around porch, a view of the pond and the gentle breezes were so relaxing. We could hardly wait to relax on the porch to view the beauty of the surrounding pond and pastures. We enjoyed ourselves on the porch with cool breezes, a glass of wine for the sunset, a cup of coffee for the sunrise! At night the fireflies danced around the trees and pond for a beautiful light show. An idyllic experience! Gerri, thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful farmhouse. We enjoyed our drives through the country to our destination of the Antique Week in Warrenton/Roundtop!
