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.

The space

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).

Guest access

You have the entire building and private outdoor space during your stay.

Interaction with guests

We will be available 24/7 to help with any issues. We are happy to provide suggestions for eating, activities and our favorite wineries.

Other things to note

One of the best airbnb's I've stayed in. We'll definitely stay here again. Easy communication with hosts Studio exactly as described, even better than the pictures Amazingly comfortable bed Central location in JC, but also pretty quiet Good amenities: AC and nice touches like white noise machine if you want it (No wifi, but that wasn't an issue) List of host favorites for food & wine tasting led us to wonderful places

Very comfortable room and location right on the town square in Johnson City. We would walk to dinner at the Pecan Street Brewery and sit out on the porch and listen to all of the birds as your neighbor is a bird aviary!Johnson City is a small town but there is lots to do in the area. We found the location good for us to zip around and explore. It's easy access to all of the wineries, Persanales State Park, Blanco State Park, Wimberley and Fredericksburg. Morgan was helpful and greeted us with baked cookies and a bottle of wine. Very enjoyable.!!

Great location for visiting Central Texas vineyards, the Pedernales State Park, the LBJ Ranch and other local points of interest. After doing so much during the day Prairie House was exactly what we needed for relaxing in the evening. And Pecan Street Brewery and Restaurant is only a two minute walk away. We will look forward to our next visit.

This was definitely one of the best experiences I've had with air bnb location wise, and host wise. It's in a great spot, not too quiet, not too loud, plenty of parking, and in walking distance of anything you need or want to check out. Big cozy bed, amazing decor, and a very helpful host make for an incredible stay.

My husband and I were looking for somewhere to have a nice little weekend getaway when we came across Morgan And Steve's place, and I am SO glad we did! The pictures don't do justice to how unique and fabulous the room is. Morgan had it equipped with anything you could possibly need during a stay. She was a great host. She greeted us with a bottle of wine and fresh cookies. Upon my request she gave us good recommendations on places to eat and things to do. I had never been to Johnson City before so I was a little skeptical about the location and the town but both were awesome. The location of the place was perfect. It is walking distance to almost anywhere you would want to go in town. And right outside of town are tons of great wineries between Johnson City and Fredericksburg. Overall, it was a memorable stay at Morgan And Steve's and we will totally do it again when we get the chance.

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.
