About this listing
Welcome to the Heart of the Texas Hill Country and Wine Trail. Our Guest House was the olde barber shop on the square in Historic Johnson City. We are the perfect starting point for winery tours, dining, shopping and exploring amazing parks. Come visit.
Welcome! This historic little tin Building once housed the town barbershop and was a gathering spot for the town locals including former President Lyndon B. Johnson. We kept some of the unique features of the old shop but added comfortable amenities for visiting guests, including a private outdoor space. When you stay with us in Johnson City, you can walk to restaurants, shop for antiques and gifts, and visit working artist studios. Take a stroll through history at our spectacular limestone Court House, head to National Park Sites all on foot.
There are 3 state parks just a short drive away. Start your getaway at the beginning of the Wine Trail, with approximately 75+ wineries between Johnson City and Fredricksburg (35 miles of vineyards).
You have the entire building and private outdoor space during your stay.

My husband and I are a travel loving couple who have been together for 34 + years. We retired from a wonderful 26.5 year career in the Military and have started our next adventure in Johnson City. It's taken us a few years to get out here full time, by way of Austin (Airbnb) and Maryland. We've traveled the world together and separately and love meeting new people and friends. My husband loves classic rock and I'm a blues girl myself. We have 2 grown children who appreciate good music and great food. We're always happy to give suggestions for things to eat, see and do.
We love to be in a location where we can walk everywhere and explore. There is nothing better than spotless accommodations, simple or well appointed.
You'll have everything you need when you stay in our home.
Enter as strangers, leave as friends.
