Our intention is to host groups looking for a unique stay at a modern farmhouse style art haven. The secluded house is nestled in the back of a beautiful 2.5 acre property and only a short drive away from a medley of hill country breweries, distilleries, wineries, wedding venues, and restaurants. We stock multiple bird feeders in the backyard year round and the birdwatching is absolutely fantastic. The House is an 8-minute drive from Downtown Dripping Springs and 35-min from Austin proper

The space
-Bird feeders galore for wild bird watching from the back deck, and there are occasional deer too!
-A giant dining table comfortably seats 8 as does our outdoor fire pit and living room areas.
-Large original abstract paintings shower the house walls with happy art vibes.
-Plenty of parking space on the property for several vehicles.
-Great hill country and wild bird views from the spacious back deck.

The Gathering House is nestled in the back of a fully fenced 2.5 acre lot and is surrounded by oak and cedar trees for privacy. The property was previously utilized as a horse rescue haven and there are still areas with hay and wooden stables that add a dash of farmhouse to the land. We have neighbors with similar sized private lots and their spaces are well separated by natural tree fencing and are a distance enough to feel at ease and secluded.

Diane: I’m a mother of three amazing and talented children and have an intense passion for horse rescue and rehabilitation. I’ve lived in Dripping Springs since 2010 and work as a horse therapy director at a foster ranch. I always start my day with a strong cup of coffee in a peaceful environment. Watching the morning sun rise from the kitchen windows in the Gathering House is an excellent way to center oneself and power up to have a great day. I manage and operate the Gathering House bnb with my eldest son, Truman. Truman: I am an self-taught artist who paints abstract and expressively. I love cooking Mexican cuisine and am an avid birdwatcher out here in Dripping Springs. I graduated from Southwestern University with a degree in communications. I speak some Spanish and love meeting people from other places. I look forward to meeting you and all who visit are welcome to tour my art studio and office near the Gathering House to experience a unique art space where I create almost daily. I've filled the Gathering House with my happy paintings as a way of sharing my passion for artistic creation with our guests. I am not a fluent Spanish speaker, but I've worked as a cook in a Spanish speaking kitchen for many years and can speak well enough to communicate if needed.

During your stay
My son, Truman, is my co-host bnb manager and spends much time at work painting at his cabin nearby. He is very punctual in responding to questions about the house or the area if any help or information is needed.
