Newly Renovated Fantastic Family Home W/ Ping-Pong, Free WiFi, & Great Location

Conveniently located just one minute off the 290, this newly renovated, spacious, and well laid out country house is in the heart of Texas Wine Country. 'Grasslands' is named for the beautiful wild grasses that proliferate on its five-and-a-half acres. This newly-renovated, peaceful, off-the-beaten-path getaway invites you to leave the city behind, unplug, unwind and connect with your guests. Feel the prevailing southern winds on your face as you have wine under the pergola, lounge in the hammocks, or chill in the rocking chairs on the front balcony and watch the sunset over miles of undeveloped land. Appreciate the seasonal grasses and wildflowers, deer and other wildlife, hill country vistas to the southeast and north, and million-star views under Blanco county's dark skies.

Get ready to be spoiled with two oversized ensuite bedrooms with large walk-in showers, one with a private balcony/exit to the backyard, the other boasting a fireplace. Entertaining will be a breeze, as the kitchen has double ovens, double sinks, and double dishwashers! The kitchen opens onto a family room with an inviting stone fireplace, card games table, and ping pong table. The kitchen and family room have access to the back patio with a pergola, fire pit, and hammocks. Not to mention, multiple dining options await both indoors or out so take your pick! Grasslands is perfect for multi-family or other group gatherings of up to 14.

Visit more than 30 wineries/tasting rooms located less than 15 miles from the house. Settle into cozy country vibes and take advantage of the unbeatable location just minutes west to dozens of wineries and minutes east to Johnson City restaurants, galleries, shopping, as well as the library, public pool, and Science Mill. If you fancy exploring, Pedernales Falls, Blanco, Luckenbach, Albert, Stonewall, Hye, Fredericksburg, Dripping Springs, and Marble Falls are all within 30 miles. Plus, the house is located less than 60 miles from San Antonio and Austin airports.

Grasslands turned out to be just what we needed. The house is conveniently located right off 290 closer to the major wineries than Fredericksburg is, and it is less than 10 minutes from Johnson City so you can access a really nice cafe and some restaurants. Before you even pull into the property, you are greeted by the cutest baby goats and chickens and a pony that lives across the street near the fence. The property is big with a few large trees and nice views of the Hill Country - it definitely makes you slow down and feel like you are in the country. The house itself is beautiful with high ceilings and lots of natural light and you can tell it was recently renovated. They did a great job on the design! The living areas are big and roomy with a closet full of games and even a ping pong table in the living room. The kitchen is huge and has 2 sinks and 2 dishwashers. The upstairs floors are a beautiful white and there are two master suites, both with gorgeous bathrooms and huge showers. There are two other bedrooms and there is a third bathroom upstairs with an authentic clawfoot bathtub! Each master also has a balcony on it, one in front of the house and one in the back. The laundry room is also upstairs and has plenty of space and extra towels. Another thing I like about this place is that there is clear labeling and messaging everywhere so you can find anything you need and figure out how to work things. There were also really nice touches like local guides, free popcorn and other snacks, a coffee station that was already set up, and bottled water. This is perfect for a family or for a group of friends that is doing a week in Hill Country. You can be closer to wineries, have a huge gorgeous place, and pay a lot less than you would in Fredericksburg. We will be coming back!

The house was a great location and layout for our family gathering.

The views as well as the peace and quiet was a highlight. The house was nicely furnished with comfortable beds and lots of nice touches to make it feel like home. We had more than enough space to sleep 8 kids and 3 adults and the spacious kitchen provided ample space to cook meals. The backyard fire pit and chimenea were the perfect place to gather and enjoy smores with the kids, and cocktails for the adults. The kids loved playing ping, croquet, running around and playing in the yard, and of course visiting the animals next door. We all enjoyed our stay and will absolutely stay here again!

We loved our stay at Grasslands. It was the perfect, relaxing spot for a girlfriends getaway thanks to its spacious bedrooms (and comfortable beds!), the fully equipped kitchen, and the breezy outside gathering spaces. It was clean, peaceful, and well appointed. It’s also so well located, just minutes from fabulous Hill Country wineries as well as the area's charming small towns. The owners helped us arrange a sprinter van wine tour of the region, which was definitely a highlight, as was checking out the restaurants, coffee shops, stores, and markets in nearby Johnson City, a hidden gem of a town. We also loved just hanging out at the house—cooking, drinking wine, watching the sunset, and catching up. Thanks for a great stay!

We loved this cozy but spacious Texas hill country home during our family spring break getaway. We booked for 2 nights with a group of 10+ people, adults and children. Everyone was very comfortable; there was ample bedding, areas to lounge around, and the kitchen was enormous and had 2 dishwashers! Our favorite area was the backyard that had a large patio space and even more seating under the trees with 2 hammocks included. The home was decorated with such great taste, simple but country modern. The bed linens were A+++. The house was only a 20-minute drive to Pedernales Falls state park, there's a local grocery store only 5 minutes away, plus plenty of wineries just a few minutes away from the home. I would highly recommend staying here for a nice hill country getaway. Very tranquil and relaxing. 10/10 would stay here again. Thank you for hosting our family!

We had a wonderful time at Grasslands! It’s the perfect, peaceful hill country getaway with stunning views and natural scenery yet still easy access to Johnson City and Fredericksburg.
The house and property are immaculate and beautifully decorated. The owners have clearly been very thoughtful about their guests, ensuring everything is easy to find and supremely comfortable. Great touches like 2 dishwashers, fire pit, rockers on the porch, and very tasteful furnishings. Everything is so well thought out. Don’t hesitate to book a relaxing retreat here for your family or friends—- you’ll be back!

This was such a great find! We stayed at Grasslands so we could check out the Johnson City holiday lights and visit a few vineyards along 290. Even though the house seems like it’s out in the country, it’s only a 5-10 minute drive to JC and several great vineyards. We drove a little further down 290 and hit Fredericksburg for some shopping and lunch. Our kids enjoyed the Ping Pong table and all the games, plus we got an early morning visit from a family of deer on the lawn! The owners have made this house feel so homey and comfortable. Lots of big beds and cozy blankets. We didn’t travel too far to get there (only from Austin), but it really felt like we were a world away from the city. A nice chance to relax and reset. We will be back!

We had such an amazing stay at Grasslands! We comfortably enjoyed the space with 3 families and we're particularly impressed with the style/decor, large bedrooms (great linens too, everything felt really clean), large kitchen for cooking group meals (2 dishwashers, double ovens, and plenty of prep/counter space) and the lovely hill country views from both front and backyards. Our kids loved seeing all the animals around the neighboring areas & playing cricket in the yard. The location really can't be beat, so close to Austin but still felt like a real vacation. We visited the Johnson City holiday lights + vineyards in Stonewall. Highly recommend Grasslands and can't wait to visit again!

We had an amazing time here last weekend. Thank you for setting up such a great clean, open, big and beautiful place. Hope to visit annually (if not more often =). FIVE STAR!

The property is wonderful! The house is beautiful with great seating areas inside and outside, and very comfortable beds. The kitchen is also well equipped. Even the neighbors are fun! Jasmine at Vacasa was so friendly and helpful. We had a great time and plan to go back soon!
