4 ladies from Dallas enjoyed this wonderful 4 bedroom, 3'1/2 bath house! But most of our time was spent on the back, wrap-around porch enjoying the quiet and beautiful Hill Country views and sunsets! We especially enjoyed the wood fire pit and smoker, and the visits from our neighbor,the beautiful peacock. Our house is located on Rr965, half way between Fredericksburg and Enchanted Rock, both of which we enjoyed visiting. We also toured several wineries and the Wildseed Farms in the area. We had a wonderful time at the Enchanted Porch and Fredericksburg area!
On our next visit we plan to stay a whole week at this beautiful home in the Hill Country.

We had a wonderful time at the Enchanted Porch. My only problems were when we lit the fireplace, it smoked up the whole house, and when we came home after a long day of visiting the wineries, the gate wouldn't open-But never fear, we had wonder-women who scaled the fence, and tried to get us in.. to no avail.. the maintainence man came right out and disconnected the gate. The home was beautiful, and we plan to stay here again!
