This "retreat" is 11 miles west of Llano. It was a destination 3 day mini vacation for us. The owner's were very pleasant and helpful. The room was extremely nice, with newer furnishings, quiet, clean and very comfortable. We stayed on the 2nd floor and in order to get to your room you had to climb metal stairs. No elevator. So if you cannot climb stairs I would recommend getting a room on the first floor. The breakfast served to us was wonderful! Each day it included fruit and a mini muffin plate and a second dish consisting of 2 sausage and 2 waffles (day 1), bacon and eggs with potatoes (day 2), and pancakes and 2 sausage (day 3). The pool and hot tub were very nice and one evening it was quite chilly so we enjoyed the outdoor gas firepit while drinking a glass of wine. Wine is sold on the premises and for $4.00 you get a large glass! Being in the Texas Hill Country the location is not too far from area wineries, Enchanted Rock, lakes, and Fredericksburg for shopping. We noticed a large family staying in one of the suites but mostly there were other couples. This would be a wonderful place for a family reunion, class reunion, a wedding or weekend get-a-way. It was well worth the money to stay here. The only drawback was in the evening after sundown, you had to make sure you didn't step on a frog near the path lights leading to the outdoor seating area and walkway to the Plantation! This was not a problem, it was just due to the country location.
