Henry Hasse e sua esposa, Fredericka, emigrou da Alemanha e comprou este rancho em 1860. Eles construíram uma estrutura de log na propriedade e substituiu-o em 1883 com esta casa de fazenda de pedra. A casa foi construída no estilo de casas de fazenda alemã na década de 1850 e está listado no Registro Nacional de Lugares Históricos, pois um dos muito poucos autênticas casas de fazenda alemães com sua estrutura original intacta. Ele foi completamente modernizado dentro para torná-lo confortável para os visitantes modernos.
A casa fica na Highway 29, a duas horas de Austin e San Antonio, e 6. 9 milhas a leste de Mason. Ele fica a 27 quilômetros de Llano e 48 quilômetros de Fredericksburg.
A casa eo rancho oferecer um romântico, charmoso fim de semana ou férias apenas algumas horas de Austin e San Antonio.
Our family of six planned a relaxing weekend on the Llano River, and we arrived late Friday afternoon, to a beautiful Texas Hill Country setting... complete with a setting sun, and cows 'mooing' in the field!
The breathtaking views, the stunning 1800's stone farmhouse, and the incredible history, was more then we expected! We even found the engraved '1883' date on the original family cabinet in the living room, (after serious super-sleuthing!)
We had such a great family Labor Day weekend, exploring Castell, the Llano River and all areas in between. We only went into Mason twice, which wasn't enough! Once it was to pick up dinner, to bring back to the house (well, we HAD to watch our Texas Longhorns play Notre Dame!!)
The house was so comfortable, and each room made us all feel so much at home. The kitchen was perfect, having everything I needed, to make a big breakfast each day. (What a treat to arrive and already have milk and orange juice in the 'frig!) The added notes on the table of 'where to go and what to do' was especially nice.
I think the crowning touch was watching the neon sun rise above the hills, through a cloud of morning fog, while we sat and drank coffee on the front porch. (Would love to send you a photo!)
There is no doubt, we will be back!!!
Thank you Pat, and Robin!

Our vacation at Hasse Haus was much more than a "stay." It was a sojourn into Texas history enshrined in a lovingly preserved property set on a still "working" ranch in the storied Hill Country. Here we experienced the "stars at night," exquisite sunsets, sights and sounds of wildlife under the "Comanche" Moon, and the American experience of the Hasse family as they worked, endured, and ultimately triumphed in their quest to establish a good life in a new Nation. We arose each morning to view the sun come up over the ridge, open the wooden shutters, fill the stone walled house with the aromas of coffee and breakfast and hurry out the door to walk the nature trails. We were "adopted" by the generous and loving members of the Art Methodist Church across the road, and these precious neighbors will remain life-long friends. Hasse Haus and the people of Art and Mason are true gems deep in the real heart of the very big heart of Texas.
I stayed at the Hasse house during the spring of 2011. It was such a peaceful experience that brought back my youth growing up on a ranch. The house was quaint and gave you the feel of not only living on a ranch but also what it might have been like for the pioneers to the area over 100 years ago. The caretakers were very attentive and kind to any need or question that I had during my stay. The owner of the property was very kind and demonstrated wonderful Texas hospitality during my stay. In addition to seeing the working ranch's cattle, I also saw wild turkeys, wild boar, hummingbirds, and antelope. The location is a good distance from both Austin and San Antonio; which was an easy trip to make.
Os hóspedes da casa tipicamente desfrutar de um passeio pela fazenda, na fuga de natureza duas milhas. A fazenda possui uma variedade de vida selvagem, incluindo cervos, guaxinins, aves migratórias, e todas as outras espécies nativas da Hill Country. O campo de idade tem um bosque de árvores nativas pecan. No extremo norte da propriedade (junto Hasse Creek) é um dos poucos remanescentes bosques de árvores Post Oak no país. O resto foram cortadas para a construção das casas originais.
Outras atividades: canoagem e observação da vida selvagem.
