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.

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.

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!

New Ulm is a wonderful, friendly, very Texas town. If you need help with anything, just ask the first person you see. The town itself is small, but there is a "general store", aka Ace Hardware, where food essentials may be found. There are also a couple of good restaurants: the Texas Star Cafe, which served homey Texas-style food, and has terrific breakfasts. The Star is open for breakfast and lunch every day except Sunday, and is open for dinner on Fridays. Another restaurant, Tin Lizzie, is currently making its debut with a delicious variety of poorboys leaning towards Cajun/Creole, and dream-worthy desserts. It's currently open for extended lunch (11- 6pm) and will be adding dinner hours soon. There are many other restaurants in nearby towns (which tend to be 5-20 miles away). (See list in House Manual.)

Park anywhere. There is no taxi service here, nor Uber. However, you can probably catch a ride on a tractor or Gator if the need arises.

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.
