If you need to smoke, please do so outside and dispose of your cigarettes afterward.

Please do not leave any trash outside.  All trash can be disposed of in the nearby trash dumpster which can be found along the road entering Gladheart. Finally, please leave any used or wet towels in a bathtub and not on the floor and return all patio furniture cushions to the lean-to shed.

Surprise Getaway!

We had a group of ladies that got together for a surprise birthday for our friend. We came from San Antonio and the directions were really easy! This place was amazing and had everything we needed for our girls weekend. We've already talked about coming back in the summer!

Kick up your Heels in the Hills!

What can I say...this was probably one of the most enjoyable homes I have ever stayed at! To start with the home is luxurious and beautiful. They thought of everything when it comes to comfort. It was extremely well taken care of and super clean. The hot tub was warmed up and ready for us, as well as all the fun activities to do! We had a wonderful time building a fire and playing horse shoes. There was truly something for everyone to do. The game room was a great addition to the property and we enjoyed a game of shuffle board. Last but not least, the animals were so cute! What fun!! Thank you for such a wonderful family experience you helped create with this property!

Tranquil getaway

This house was everything we needed for a short adult weekend getaway. It was even more secluded than expected. The house was well equipped for a stay home weekend away. We had planned on visiting a winery or two however after driving by several and seeing the crazy long lines we decided it was not worth the risk. Thankfully the Vaughn House had everything we needed for some fun. Highly recommend!

Perfect Set Up!

We stayed in the Vaughan House and really liked the setup. Loved that all three rooms had king beds. The house/kitchen was pretty well stocked with towels and kitchen items. Pleasantly surprised with the technology in the house, rokus were available in every room and easy to use. Enjoyed the quick walk over to the game room to play some pool.
