My sisters and I were so excited to get away for the first time since we lost Mom. Our oldest sister found Star House, and we will remember it always! The healing breeze from the Mesa, the beautiful flowers all around the grounds, the serenades from the local birds and the ones just passing through, the best homemade quiche ever and the warmth we felt from Kathy and Wayne made it a perfect retreat. We could also mention the fresh squeezed juice and yogurt surprises as well as the museum pieces and bed linens that no one will want to live without...ever! So happy that big sister found Star House! Happy Happy!! Five Stars!! See you October 14th for the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festval.

We had the most enjoyable time while staying at the Star House B&B. Tremendous location, views, bungalow, food and hosts - who are simply amazing. Strongly recommend and we look forward to a future visit.

We absolutely loved Stella, and her owners were so charming and hospitable! The views were so awesome! The stars at night were amazing from our deck. Breakfast was lovely. Stella was quaint and quirky and amazing! Nothing could have been better. Well, maybe her sister Airstream. We checked her out and she is a beauty in the making! Thanks so much for everything!
You guys were just as wonderful guests and we really enjoyed meeting you both. Folks such as you are why we love doing what we do here at the property. Thanks for the great review and hope to see you again! Safe Travels Always.

A friend was getting married in Dripping Springs and I found Star House and decided to stay in Stella. Best decision I could have made! The Airstream had just the right amount of space and there was a great deck to sit on and read, have a drink or just watch the clouds pass buy the hilltops. It was easy to get in and out of Dripping Springs and we were at Pedernales Falls to hike in 15 minutes. The nights were cool but the Airstream was always comfortably warm. We didn't get to meet Wayne because he was out of town but Kathy was a gracious host and her breakfasts were delicious. I will definitely be going back!

My husband and I stayed at Star House over Thanksgiving weekend. It is a great location outside Dripping Springs. Kathy makes fantastic breakfasts and treats you like a honored guest! It's very conveniently located to Pedernales Falls State Park, Hamilton pool, the wineries, olive oil company, plus great restaurants in Dripping Springs and Blanco. We even went to the local dance hall. The guest house is very comfortable and has all of the amenities you need. Totally relaxing! Wayne makes incredible yard art that decorates the beautiful grounds

My husband and I are in the restaurant / hotel business, so we are tougher than most on meals and accommodations reviews. Star House was a charming delight in a beautiful setting, very convenient to our cooking class and easy to get in and out. The Innkeepers pushed our experience over the top. You won't be dissappointed.

We had an incredible weekend at the B&B. Immediately upon arrival we felt welcome and at home. Kathy & Wayne were amazing hosts. The accommodations were warm, comfortable and clean. The hilltop property and the views were spectacular. The delicious breakfast each morning prepared by Kathy with love was brought to the door promptly at 9 each day. From the first time I communicated with Kathy, she was helpful, very friendly and provided much needed information about the area and things to do / places to go. We are already planning a return visit in the very near future. There is no need to look any further...if you are looking for a wonderful weekend getaway in a beautiful setting with beauttiful hosts, this is the place.
