Great Bed & Breakfast

5 on June 16, 2017

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Cactus Guesthouse! It was clean and nicely decorated with a Texas touch. Leta prepared delicious breakfast. We had strawberry waffles and yogurt with almonds and cherries one morning, and omelets and yogurt tailored to our tastes the other morning. The residence is located in a valley with a beautiful view of the hills and trees and nice breeze. We were also able to enjoy the pool nestled in the wonderful landscaping. Leta also made very helpful recommendations about where to visit in that area, such as the old towns of Borne and Comfort. Our overall experience: wonderful hospitality and great accommodations, convenient location, privacy, very relaxing getaway from the city.

Doesn't get any better than this!

Stayed a long weekend - wonderful hosts, great breakfasts - beautiful surroundings, relaxing by the pool in warm sun. Feels like your own personal estate or on board your own private mega yacht. Can't recommend it enough. Exceeded expectations.

Amazing Memories

Anyone looking for a private get away or an intimate location for a small family gathering - this is the place for you! The owners are amazingly friendly with hospitality like none I've ever encountered. My husband had a few odd requests and the owners accommodated his every need. If you think the pictures are pretty - I promise you, the surroundings, up close and personal are unforgettable. The Homestead on Fox Ridge was a get away we won't soon forget. Now that life has slowed down a little, I can finally thank you both for a for a beautiful wedding, honeymoon and family gathering. Sincerely, Jennifer and Jarrard

A Gem in the Hill Country

5 on July 02, 2015

My husband and I were delighted to find this beautiful and immaculate spot in a great location! Even though we could only stay one night, we arrived early enough to take a relaxing dip in the pool, after being welcomed with cookies, chocolate covered cherries and iced tea. The following morning our leisurely and delicious breakfast on the veranda was another highlight. We felt like we were staying at a Southern Living Magazine featured getaway! Thank you, Leta and Bill, for sharing your gem in the Texas Hill Country!

The Homestead on Fox Ridge was the absolute highlight of our weekend. We could not have had a more delightful stay. Leta was a joy and babied us beyond compare. The food, the service, everything was fabulous. We will be back!

Wonderful, Overnight Stay

My girlfriend and i stayed at the Homestead on Fox Ridge this past Friday evening after attending a concert at John T. Floore's . We actually arrived Friday afternoon, and were both in love with the place immediately. The grounds are peaceful, lush and beautifully landscaped. Leta is the perfect hostess, and she greeted us with wine and a snack. We stayed in the Cactus Blossom Suite which was clean, cool, and thoughtfully decorated. There is also a spacious porch with a dining table, and other comfortable seating. We very much enjoyed sitting out on the porch Saturday morning, eating the delicious breakfast that Leta prepared for us, and watching the hummingbirds visit the feeders. There was a beautiful pool and hot tub which we didn't have time to enjoy, but we did enjoy sitting around the pool in the evening after the concert for a time. We absolutely loved everything about our stay, and our only regret was that it was only for a single night. The next time, we will definitely stay for a couple of days.

Country escape

We visited here in November and had a wonderful experience. The food, the room , the grounds were great. We are innkeepers ourselves and know what it takes to make a great B&B. The innkeepers helped us with recommendations to help us enjoy the area. If you are visiting the San Antonio area, this is the place to stay. Denny and Jan

Wonderful experience!!!

This is by far the most wonderful B and B I have ever stayed in. Leta and Bill are so welcoming and the Homestead is beautiful. The attention to detail is everywhere...from the grounds to the rooms to the food and presentation. Thank you so much. We will be back!

Awesome accommodations.

Innkeeper Response
Jerre, thank you for your review and attempting to post a five star rating. I contacted the technical dept at B& and they were experiencing technical difficulties with the IPad entries and explained that is why you could not go higher than a three. It should be corrected soon they reported. We enjoyed having you and appreciate very much your kind comments, and look forward to having you stay with us again!

A little piece of Heaven in Texas

5 on October 20, 2014

The Homestead on Fox Ridge Bed & Breakfast far exceeded my expectations. The joy of this property started upon arrival. We were greeted by Leta who was busy preparing for round two of guest. Her personality, kind heart and smile were a heartwarming and most pleasant greeting. We stayed in the guest house and can say Leta & Bill covered all details from all bathroom necessities, kitchen, bedding, robes and the delicious snacks (candy, fresh cookies and chocolate covered cherries).I would highly recommend this property for a wedding, individual get away, romantic getaway, or an all-girls shopping weekend (Helotes, Bandera and Fredericksburg are close). The pool, jacuzzi, outdoor seating, natural sounds of water and birds, the lush landscaping that attracts the most beautiful hummingbirds and butterflies were all so very tranquil we couldn't help but just set back, relax, breathe and take in the beauty. And last but not least was the 3 course breakfast. Leta & Bill are an amazing team. The food was top notch from presentation to flavor! Yum. It was a blessing meeting the both of you and we look forward to a future stay. God bless you & thank you. Tait & Stacey
